  • Some Cydia Packages Incompatible with iOS 4.3.1

    [UPDATE: Backgrounder and Infinidock (which had been giving some but not all users problems) have both been updated and now seem to be working OK under 4.3.1]

    Following the release of PwnageTool and redsn0w for iOS 4.3.1, users are noticing that a number of popular apps and tweaks aren't working properly. The list is short but growing, and anyone who relies on packages like Backgrounder or ActionMenu should probably consider holding off until updates are released.

    The following are currently being reported as incompatible with iOS 4.3.1:
    • Backgrounder
    • Shrink
    • Action Menu
    • DisplayRecorder

    Celeste is also being claimed to be incompatible, but it appears that it's actually the ActionMenu incompatibility that's causing the problems with that app.

    There are a number of other sporadic reports that AppBackup and 5-Row Keyboard aren't working, but we haven't heard any widespread complaints about those particular apps yet.

    If you've got an app or tweak that's not working under 4.3.1, please post it in comments and we'll try to come up with a complete, verified incompatibility list.

      I'm having a small issue with winterboard, I can't seem to get the slide to unlock background to change, using the exact same theme as when I was on 4.2.1, but doesnt work on 4.3.1 but the rest of the custom theme is spot on. Very strange... also my theme has disappeared totally once or twice and i've had to respring to get it back

      Used to apply "clearme" to take out the slider in lockscreen. However, it is confirmed that it doesn't work anymore under iOS 4.3.1.

      Is there any theme that is compatible with iOS 4.3.1 and is able to take out the slider in lockscreen ?

      I use Transparent Slider Background from Cydia. Nothing else worked for me.

      AppBackup isn't working because of one of it's dependencies. The author said this on his website:

      "There is a known problem with AppBackup crashing on iOS 4.3.1.* It seems to be that a third-party library (PyObjC) which my program relies on needs to be updated to work with 4.3.1 (probably due to the addition of address space layout randomization).* I already know about it, and I am looking into it.* Thank you for your patience."

      I think that might take a while to fix. I'm also waiting for infinidock. Other than those two, which I don't necessarily need, I'm doing fine on 4.3.1.

If they would have done it your way you'd just be b1tching about the updates not being totally right.

      the MS update has been available since late February. Look at apt.saurik.com on a web browser and you can see that the 4.3.x version of MS was on the repo and was last 'updated' in February.

      In fact, google 4.3 substrate between last week and a month ago an you'll find at least one post (including a macRumors forums post) saying that Saurik was only waiting for an official JB tool to release it with.

      In fact, the MS version used (+6g....) is the same version used by the beta SB 'with ultrasnow fixer' for 4.3 and 4.3.1 and the official PT, SB and RS releases.

      The following cydia paid apps are working fine for me on iPhone 4 with 4.3.1:

      PkgBackup (restored everything perfectly on JB'n 4.3.1, including multi-layered folders)

      And to reiterate, Backgrounder does not work for me either.

      Weathericon doesn't work.

      Lockscreens need redone on themes. But E is for Ezra theme works other than lock screen.

      And some status bar apps don't work or partially work.

      I'm having no problems with the latest release of Backgrounder, 1.0.4-1, now that the max OS level restriction has been removed. I'm just waiting for Music Controls Pro now, but that shouldn't take too long as phoenix3200 is usually pretty good with the updates.

      You can get FakeOperator. That will function the same as MIM

      [QUOTE=KartRacer;5945173]YourTube 2 doesn't work because the developer can't bother to write an app that works worth a damn. It isn't 4.3.1's fault or anything else except the developer. They have a history of making and selling an app and abandoning it completely. I don't advocate piracy but I'd do it just to piss off that dev. His support is nonexistent and his apps are worthless. I've not had YourTube 2 work for more than about 10 total downloads before it quit working properly all 3 times it's been updated. Worthless app, worthless dev.

      Thanks for that....
      annoying isnt it.. it was working fine on 4.2.1
      I just like having youtube videos saved on the videos section thanks though

      I had this error today...

      bitesms didnt wanna work so i uninstalled it worked fine normall messaging for about 4 hours then that frooze so I installed bitesms and it seems to work now... really weird.. might need to restore and jailbreak

      everything has been working fine for me; no problems so far, except, when I was reinstalling everything trough cydia, I was 'continue queuing' alot, and after downloading 20+ packages one got the error 'posix time out' so cydia didn't unpack any of the other 19 packages :/. I don't know if it's 4.3.1 or cydia loving me there but it's driving me insane happened more than once too
