  • 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.

      Yep- that's what I'm waiting on as well. Wouldn't think of jailbreaking without PKGBackup to Restore everything instantly. Any news on PKGBackup?

      Of course now we have 4.3.2 bearing down on us...

      That's not new. 5-Row doesn't work in Cydia, instance. I guess you can't use Winterboard themes there. Actually, wait. 5-Row works in iFile and I have an iPod touch 4G at 4.1.

      This is getting rather confusing. I'm keen to update but until there's a clear list indicating what's working and what isn't, I'm very hesitant.

      There was a great Google Docs spreadsheet when 4.0 was released hilghting what apps were broken. Any user could update it with advice and comments on each app. Maybe we should start something similar for 4.3?

      Do we have any word on ActionMenu and PkGBackup? From this thread I'm gathering one person has had succcess with PKGBackup where as others haven't?

      Most importantly, for me, Pkgbackup doesn't work after upgrading to IOS 4.3.1 on my iphone 4. Needless to say, this caused a lot of headaches. Lucky for me that I had the TSS Server running from Tiny Umbrella. So I reverted back to IOS 4.2.1 and then installed Pkgbackup. It works with 4.2.1. I am holding off until I hear from the author.

      I got a note from the author saying that it works with IOS 4.3.1.

      Jibril GUEYE said' "it runs under FW 4.x!
      Nevertheless, the latest version has an issue with the latest Cydia user management. You restore the user repos manually then restore your device w/ PKGBackup (after deselecting all user repos).
      I'll publish a fix very soon, 24-48h.
      Keep me posted."

      So the update came and went. I still had to install the repos manually.

      I think everybody that is having problems with the appbackup or pkgbackup is because you restored from a previous jailbreak backup. I've always found that it tends to be pretty buggy. It's just been my experience and I've chose to abandon the restore from backups, as well as any programs that backup all jb apps.

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.
      It's not neglect, it's a matter of timing and prioritization--popular packages that are easy to update are usually done first and unpopular packages that are difficult to update are done last.

      Unless we have have access to a jailbreak with proper kernel patches, it's usually pointless to begin updates as things are going to change anyway. Failbreaks are not the same as tethered jailbreaks; as someone who's been around awhile, you should know that by now. redsn0w's tethered 4.2.1 beta jailbreak is an example of a good jailbreak that was tethered.
