WinterBoard Now Fully Compatible With iOS 6.1 and A6 CPU, Veency Updated Too
Themers will be happy to hear this – WinterBoard is now fully compatible with all iOS versions up to iOS 6.1 and also now supports the new A6 CPU, which is housed inside of the new iPhone 5, and the A6X CPU is housed inside of the new iPad with retina display. Both of these devices will be included in the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak called evasi0n
, which as of this writing is around 85% complete.
WinterBoard officially states the compatibility on the Cydia page:
While WinterBoard now officially supports these new devices, the same cannot be said for all themes. Theme creators will also be working to update their themes to bring support for iOS 6 and the new application icons that come with it, such as the updated Maps application and the new Passbook application. Some themes have already been updated, while many more are still in the works.
Saurik has also announced an update to Veency, the VNC application for iOS, saying that Veency is now iOS 6-compatible. According to the Tweet, Veency will run on iOS 6.0 and iOS 6.1. Veency allows you to log into your iOS device and control it remotely from a computer with a VNC client installed:
Both packages are available in Cydia for free. The updated version of Veency is version 0.9.3380 and the updated version of WinterBoard is version 0.9.3908.
