  • 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.

      Do it manually go to System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/N90AP.plist and look for Multitasking and change it from true to false or if u have iFile open up with plist editor and it's an on off switch. Just turn to off, there are a lot of useful tweaks with that plist file u can hide your contacts icon unified iPod icon u will c check it out

      ok so here's some info the update for CK iOS 5 was made and tested on 4.3.3. at the moment a few ppl has had the same issue I had (keyboard n popups not themeing and server connection failure) still on 4.3.3. Currently it is unknown what the issue might be. been back and forth with Yuu all night trying to figure it out. but when i uninstalled CK v1.1.7(iOS 5 update) and reinstalled v1.1.6 (the internet can be sooooo useful @ times) it works with no problem. so be cautious of the update. is anyone on iOS 5 to confirm that it works with the update?

      Also must add with v1.1.7 installed it actually killed my app icons from skinning also
