  • 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:

    • SleepFX
    • 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.

      While it's broken (and hd photographer) I've figured out the plist settings to make 720x1280 work.

      Yay! an almost 1 megapixel camera again!
      If anyone's interested, I'll post the gory details. :/

      Springflash DOES NOT work properly on iOS 5. Or maybe its Activator that's the problem.

      I set it to Springflash at both volume press on lockscreen and that made my phone go crazy. The LED was flashing randomly. Pressing the power button would lock and unlock the phone, bypassing the lockscreen.

      I uninstalled Springflash for now...

      Popup Blocker does not seem to work with iOS5. It would cause a respiring into safe mode every time I hit the home button.

      Any notifier app in Cydia that works with iOS5? to get the lil envelope or bubble window by the clock? Crazy how much that is needed?

      Nope. Read the comments for extras.

      It would be unethical to update a list for hundreds of individual little tweaks.
