  • 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.

Sadly he's not the only dev who's neglected to update their app. Phoenix3200's music controls pro is also in need of an update. What confuses me most how these devs act as though they've had no access to 4.3.x even though 4.3 has been jailbroken since since release (albeit tethered). I suppose Chpwn's elitest pr!ck mentality of refusing to code for a "failbreak" (read that as tethered JB) is responsible for these apps not being compatible.
      I love people talk out their ***** with no real clue. MobileSubstrate wasn't updated to work with 4.3 until Sun night and the fakeBreak was missing patches to allow Devs to propperly update their apps/tweaks. If they would have done it your way you'd just be b1tching about the updates not being totally right.

      Try loading the official BiteSMS, and not a Cracked version. Bitesms 5.2 is compatible with 4.3.1, and should be the only one available under Legal channels.

      MyWi is up to 4.60.9. Is that the version you are referring to?

      OpenNotifier doesn't work. It installs, but when choosing the icon you want for an app it crashes to SB.

      FYI- emailed the developer of AppBackup and he's working on a fix.

      makeitmine quit working after 4.1 due to the way it modifies system files. Apple changed something in 4.2.1 and beyond.

      backgrounder does work!
      the problem is it got a "wrong" Firmware string. I modded the required Firmware to 4.3.1 and the version ro 1.0.3-2 (so it wont tell u there is update available)
      download link: uploaded.to - where your files have to be uploaded to (if this isnt allowed pls delete it )

      EDIT: Just saw there is a new Version out in the repo... install on 4.3.1 is now allowed!

      I was having Safe Mode issues until I uninstaled RoundCorners, Strength and UnlimROMs at once; it was one of these three (I'm assuming RoundCorners, because Shrink was having issues, too).
