  • 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.

      DisplayRecorder stopped working normally in iOS 4.0 and you had to work around it using Backgrounder. I had recently paid for it so I've been somewhat disappointed that they never fixed it. I have a feeling that it's only on this lost because Backgrounder was, so now that Backgrounder has been updated and taken off of the list, ScreenRecorder should work. Has anyone tested it again?

      Who cares about MyWi .. Its crap because its not free. The built-in Wifi Hotspot feature works perfectly. I managed to share my 3G connection as either wifi, bluetooth or usb with ease.

      Be sure to let the developer of PKGBackup know. He probably already does, but more data points are always good.

      I think the OP should make a primary list of Apps that do not work and ones that do work, instead of reading 11 pages of posts that most users are reporting the same thing.

      Agree completely. Given the frequency that apps are being updated (many reported in this thread have already been fixed) there should be a clear list on the first page that is updated daily.

      If the OP is too busy let me know and I'll start a new thread.

      MCleaner 1.8.3 doesn't work. After making a phone call and hitting End Call the phone freezes up then restarts in Safe Mode.

      Resupport4 had an update today, which I installed, but it doesn't look like it worked. The non-apple cables I have, which worked before, are still not working. Hopefully a future updated will fix it.

      sorry, i should have deleted my comment. I went back and tried to add several songs, it hadn't actually listened to anything... since then I have downgraded to 4.2.1 to use pwntunes

      So is PKGBackup working or not?

      Read thread that said it wasn't working on 4.3.1

      That's a pretty important app to be broken on 4.3. Given it's entire purpose is to reset up your phone when jailbroken. I paid $7 for it so I'm definitely holding off jailbreaking till it's confirmed working.

      My "no service" problem wasn't due to PKGBACKUP. it was due to failing to uncheck "activate phone" under general during pwnage custom build. pkgbackup seems to be working fine in 4.3.1 so far.

      I had the exact same issue with mine. Went back and created a new IPSW with the option turned off to activate. Works perfect and have signal now :-)
