  • 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.

      You can add Resupported4 to the list of apps not working. DisplayOut might not be working either. I have to use both of them to get my iPhone to display on the TV when using non-apple video cables. The picture blinks on the screen for a second, then off, then on, then off, then disconnects and I get the "This accessory is not compatible with.............." Use to work flawlessly until the update to 4.3.1. I am sure an update will come out fixing it but since the jailbreak and 4.3.1 are still fairly new, the Devs just haven't gotten around to it yet.

      I do not have 3G coverage at the moment but the MyWI connection through USB and WIFI seem to work just fine. Haven't tried the On Demand option since I don't have an iPad at the moment.

      Appbackup isn't working on my iPhone 4 either. I press the app and then it opens and shuts down. I do not get to the screen to backup or restore.

      I have no doubt the issues found thus far will be fixed. The Devs love a challenge. . Thanks.
      Works great for me

      I'm still on 4.2.1 and GpsPhone doesn't work so it probably doesn't work on 4.3.1. I loved that app...

      MIM also doesn't work on 4.2.1. Use FakeCarrier; only problem is it must remain as on the phone as an app; with MIM, you delete the app when the carrier was changed.

      What happens is that when these "early" non-dev team jailbreaks are released they often don't have the proper kernel patches and mobile substrate upgrades required for devs to properly update their apps for the said firmware. Saurik barely released a 4.3 compatible MS yesterday I believe. So don't hate on the devs for not upgrading their apps when all those unofficial tethered solutions arrived.

      TetherMe works on 4.3.1 but enables Personal Hotspot instead.

      GridLock, FolderEnhancer, 3G Unrestrictor, Notifier, Pop Up Blocker & Springtomize work as well.
