  • 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.

      Well said cuz I am a user of some of those apps named. But only as a try before I buy basis. If I'm wrong for that, then I'm sorry for trying NOT to waste my hard earned money like before the jailbreak days. Most apps don't have a trial period. So this is the best way to save time and money.

      I have an iphone 3GS, my wife a 4, and we're both on 4.2.1. We updated all available Cydia apps we had and now our WiFi icons are gone from the status bar. WiFi works, it's just that the icons have dissapeared. Any ideas?

As for Winterboard I had to install Winterfix in order to get it working. It would keep my i4 in constant safe mode. I'll have to see what this Winterboard beta is and try it out. Also I just tried gridlock because I saw it on the list and it is causing it to go into safe mode. Yes I have the mobile substrate and icon support updates.
      There is a beta version of biteSMS in it's own repo. You will need to download that one in order to run it on iOS 5.

      Funny you mention that because I actually got an infraction here when I posted a thorough compatibility for like ios 4.3 because I forgot to remove those when I was copying and pasting the compatibility lists from sites have tons of compatibility info but unfortuneately like to encourage piracy. Of course the mod removed the infraction when I explained that and fixed my post. Perhaps this was taken straight from the redmond source (they tend to support piracy) and forgot to remove them. Hopefully the post is fixed though.

      Winterboard is an open source application. There is no piracy here . Thank you.

      Not sure where to post so I put it here.
      2 things no longer working in IOS5 are AirPrint for Windows and Air Media Player.
      I can no longer find my windows AirPrint server and I can no longer stream to Windows to either the AirPlayer plugin in WMC or the AirMediaPlayer app itself.

      So again Apple add a whole lot of new features to IOS but they also remove a lot of features.
      There should be a list of whats been removed between IOS4.* and IOS5.*
      That will change a lot of peoples minds about upgrading. I for one will be downgrading shortly.


      (Why is it when I post it always goes to the first page and not my post like every other forum on the web?)
      (And the problem with formatting is still there. I post in paragraphs so its easier to read but when it gets posted its all in 1 paragraph and all formatting is gone. I have to edit to put it back to the way I had it. There is also the (QUOTE)(QUOTE) at the top of the post when I edit it)

      I know beta software isnt piracy but Install-ous and ******* are DEFINATELY piracy. Sorry about the confusion but hope you fix your post.

      There are no links in my description pointing to piracy. Even if Winterboard were not in Beta, that also would not be piracy. Jay Freeman offers all of his tools as open source software. Referring to ********** is not reason enough to erase it. That would be like saying that it's wrong to mention the name, "Limewire" although I would not be offering any doors for piracy. Information is only made available, you do what you want with it.

      TCP Optimizer works, however, I don't know if it actually speeds up your youtube loading and overall wifi connectivity.

      I think it's great that devs are getting their apps sorted for 5, but, without an untethered JB it's pointless.The article says peeps are working on an untethered JB, but given that 5 has been out there for some considerable time (in Beta), and that the last untethered JB was 4.3.3, I'd say we're a long way from an untethered 5 jailbreak. 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.

      It was reported that Winterboard has minimal effect on iOS 5. They have to try and fix it, which is why it's not an official release on Cydia.

      Read the first post again. You need to the beta winterboard version not the one that is currently in cydia.
