  • Current List of iOS 5 Compatible Cydia Packages

    Numerous Cydia tweaks are currently being updated for iOS 5. As of late, this is what we know.

    iOS 5 is currently jailbreakable using redsn0w 0.9.9b5. The jailbreak is tethered meaning that you will need to connect your device to a computer every time that you restart the device; and 'boot tethered.' Rest assured, that along with the Siri porting project, iPhone hackers are working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.

    While iOS 5 is new and quickly becoming a big hit for most iDevice users, jailbreak devs are currently working as fast as they can to adapt their jailbreak tweaks and packages to iOS 5 binaries. The transition from iOS 4 to iOS 5 will take a few weeks, maybe months – as it did when iOS 4 came out, nothing happened over night. But, as of late, this is what we know about tweak and package compatibility between Cydia and iOS 5:

    • SMSEnhancer
    • Volume Boost
    • Xpandr
    • YourTube 2

    IMPORTANT NOTES:

    I don't recommend installing the apps where the compatibility is unknown. They come with the chance of possibly putting your device in the same state as the apps that are not compatible. I would stay away from these too, until they are verified.


    Props to The_Ben for the wonderful list of Cydia applications. Any that he missed that I knew about, I tried to add myself.

    So now that you know what tweaks are/aren't compatible with iOS 5, what will you choose to do with your device? Will you go ahead with the tethered jailbreak until the untethered jailbreak? Or will you wait for the untethered jailbreak? Some of you might have decided that iOS 5 does everything you want it to and you've decided not to jailbreak at all. Keep in mind that many of the tweaks that are not compatible with iOS 5 are being worked on. Some of the tweaks that I know for sure are getting worked on are: Infinifolders, Infinidock, and Springtomize.

    If I left anything off of the list and you have any information as to its compatibility, please leave a comment below so that other readers can benefit from your information.

      No that just means you didn't read the whole post and attempted to download in Cydia rather than off the post and SSH as instructed!

      Also there's no iOS 5 themes yet so it's not a huge deal but yes the winterboard beta posted here works

      As long as you are not linking to warez or discussing them (eg. how to use or get them) then it is fine. Posting the name of them in a compatibility list is fine. Just like posting an icon for them in a theme thread is considered alright.

      If you're looking to hide the lockscreen clock, you'll have to do it manually. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...hl=en_US&pli=1 For the instructions

      PS: Works with iPad

      It is on the green list. You CAN NOT install the Winterboard from Cydia. You need to download the beta that I provided in a link. Thanks.

      SMSEnhancer works partially. Contact photos shows on the SMS list but not in the messages. I was able to sent photo thru mms as well.

      SMS GV Extension isn't working properly for me in iOS 5. Incoming SMS messages are all shown as being from "000000". The messages are correct in the official GV app. Sending works with the extension.

      I used the deb file posted above and didn't have any problems. You probably downloaded it from Cydia.

      Winterboard is NOT yet compatible.. at least not from Cydia. I may have heard there is a beta available somewhere.. but this should be placed in the RED section until it is on the main repo.

      Question about tethered jailbreaking: I never did a tethered jailbreak before but I do know that you must reboot it using the jailbreak software if you reboot or turn it off. So here is the question. With a tethered jailbreak, and you reboot or turn it off, is your device bricked until you boot tethered it?

      Pretty much, it won't turn on until you boot it tethered.

If ever.The Jailbreak ride was a great one, but it's been looking more and more that Apple have won the war for some time now. The "ToDo" list for the hackers is getting longer every day, they're still to clear up the mess they created with the 6.15 debacle. I hope I'm wrong, I hope the "no new unthethered exploits will be used until 5 is released" comments over the last few months really do mean, as they lead us to believe, that the devs have something up their sleeve. But I fear they're as stumped now on this one as they are on an unlock since way back.
      Why would you say its pointless? Plenty of us have no problem using a tethered jailbreak, it isn't difficult. Who knows when an untethered jailbreak will be available, but I am glad it was not released while iOS 5 was still in beta. That would just give apple a chance to fix the exploit before release, wasting a jailbreak.
