Fix YouTube (Cannot Connect to YouTube) & Push Notifications on iOS 4.3 & iOS 4.3.1 [How-To Guide]

After jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad on iOS 4.3 or iOS 4.3.1 with Sn0wbreeze or PwnageTool, your Push Notifications and YouTube app will not work. Opening YouTube app will throw "Cannot connect to YouTube" error while apps which support Push Notifications will display "Connect to iTunes to Use Push Notifications" error. To fix these errors, simply follow the step-by-step guide below to enable Push Notifications and fix YouTube app on your iDevice.

Update: SBingner has updated SAM to work with iOS 4.3 and iOS 4.3.1. Just download SAM from here and use this guide to officially activate your iPhone using SAM. This will automatically enable Push Notifications and fix YouTube error on your iDevice.

      Cydia freezes because it still thinks you’re installing software even after a force-quit/hard restart. Restart the phone and click on Cydia until it goes back to the homescreen. It usually works after the 5th or 6th restart. Also, PushDoctor does not have any certs as of today, so do not use it.

    I tried everything, and my Push Notifications are still not working! :( I’m on a iPod Touch 4th Generation with iOS version 4.3.1, Jailbroken with RedSn0w 0.9.6rc12. Please help!

      Actually there was no need to install SAM or Push Doctor on iPod. iPod is never hacktivated, so Push Notifications should work without installing any of these tools. Just restore your iPod and jailbreak using Redsn0w. Reboot and then sync with iTunes. Push Notifications should work fine.

    It actually worked. Ironically i was using an official carrier (AT&T) on my iPhone 3G[S] on iOS 4.3.1
    At first, it worked out of the box, but soon, began acting up, with this fix, it actually worked. I jailbroke using Sn0wbreeze btw

    I also have a 3GS on 4.3.1 and I dont get any push. It is jailbroken by custom ipsw and unlocked by ultrasn0w.
    The ipsw came already activated but I installed SAM, and I got activation with SAM (showed wildcard). I tried many things, including push doctor, but nothing works!
    I have no message “conect to itunes to get pushs”
    it just do NOT works

    Could you give me an option? THANKS!

      Read step 15 here http://bit.ly/i7ceCI If the problem persists, go to SAM->Utilities->De-Activate iPhone->Restore Activation. It should solve all issues!
