  • 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:

    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.

      Since no one has put this package in cydia for IOS 5 yet: If you dont want album artwork on LS do this.. Open ifile then go to / --> System --> Library --> SpringBoardPlugins --> and find NowPlayingArtLockScreen.lockbundle and rename it. There you go, no album art on the LS.

      I have installed ToneFX and it seems to work fine without an update. I have also downloaded numerous themes that include Prestige HD, VIP HD, ReviKRS, ReviDX, and Noki. They all work fine except the video, music, mail, and reminder icons don't change but if you know how to SSH or go into iFile and change them manually (like I have) you can do so. All the widgets work as well except for the ones where you need to use "Lockscreen Clock Hide", because that hasn't been updated yet and just sends your phone into safe mode loop.

      Does anyone know if opennotifier Or lib weather is working?

      Because numerous amounts are in the Cydia store – something I do not have the time to update every second. If you need news on which ones work, read the comments yourself. It will be enlightening.

      Did you mean to say that it was _impractical_ or _inconvenient_?
      I can see how it might be. And I'd tend to agree with you.

      But please do tell us how it is unethical to maintain such a list.
      (or do all of these strange words mean the same thing?!)

      I have read every post in the thread (some of them with questionable moral and ethical grounds), but if compiling the list was ethically sound, how would maintaining it become unethical?

      I tend to agree that it's unethical as well. Not the fact that It's immoral to maintain a list – but to make a busy writer work through several indecisive comments, when I have more important things to tend to.

      As we get closer to the Untether of A5 devices, is there an updated list of what's compatible? I noticed it was last updated in October. I have been out of the jailbroken-world for a while so a good list of some cool stuff would really suit me well! Thanks for all this, by the way!

      I'm sure you can google a current list but the best way(for me at least) is to just look up apps on cydia(featured) and see if they are compatible. Almost all apps/tweaks/themes, etc; have the version for what it's compatible with.
