  • Ten Wonderful iPhone 5-Compatible Jailbreak Tweaks We Love


    With the iPhone 5 having been finally jailbroken (here's how to do it), Cydia dwellers are being cautious not to install tweaks on it unless it’s known that they’re compatible to avoid conflicts and crashing. Here are some rather nice jailbreak tweaks that we’ve confirmed work just fine on the iPhone 5. Additionally, you'll find a developing list, under these 10 jailbreak tweaks, containing other tweaks we know are iPhone 5-compatible.

    1. Auxo

    Auxo is a great app switcher replacement for the iPhone and iPod touch. iPad support is coming soon. The current version of Auxo runs fine on the iPhone 5 with no crashing. The tweak takes into account the iPhone 5’s taller display, and adjusts the screenshot sizes in the app switcher accordingly. Also, users don’t have to scroll down to reveal the volume slider in the iPod controls on the iPhone 5. Auxo is $1.99 in the BigBoss repository.



    2. TetherMe

    TetherMe is my personal favorite solution for unauthorized tethering, as it unlocks a feature that is already built into iOS rather than adding a third-party interface. TetherMe is fully compatible with iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, and it can share blazing-fast LTE performance with any device that you pair to your iPhone 5’s connection via iOS’ native tethering. TetherMe can be had for $4.99 in the BigBoss Repository.



    3. Barrel

    Barrel lets you change the animation of swiping through pages on your home screen. Barrel works fine with the iPhone 5, and with the extra row of icons on the taller, four-inch display. A couple of the animations are a little jittery, but most (almost all) of them work as expected. Barrel won’t cause any problems for you if you want to add these great animations to your iPhone 5! Barrel is $2.99 in the BigBoss repository.



    4. Zephyr

    Zephyr is also compatible with the iPhone 5, and all of its features work as expected. You can swipe up from the bottom of the display to reveal the App Switcher and close apps, as well as swipe from the sides of the screen to move between open applications. The Notification Center animation also works great on the iPhone 5. Zephyr is $4.99 in the BigBoss repository.



    5. OpenNotifier

    OpenNotifier also plays nice with the iPhone 5, and lets you assign status bar icons to applications so that when you receive notifications from them, you’ll also get a status bar icon for that application. There are bundle(s) in Cydia that can extend the range of icons you can use in the status bar, so don’t feel limited by the stock ones. OpenNotifier is free in the ModMyi repository. Additionally, the OpenNotifier Premium pack, which adds more icons to OpenNotifier, is compatible with the iPhone 5.



    6. SBSettings

    SBSettings will run great on the iPhone 5, as well. You can use any of the toggles of SBSettings from either the drop-down Activator-based interface, or the Notification Center-based interface. More toggles are also available in Cydia, but they’re not all compatible with iOS 6 just yet. With SBSettings, you can also change your carrier name, disable certain tweaks, and much more. SBSettings is free in the BigBoss repository.



    7. Bars

    Bars is a tweak that will make the signal strength indicator for your cellular network more accurate. It plays nicely with the iPhone 5 and the LTE signal strength. It’s a nice little addition if you want to be just a little more precise than Apple wants you to be. Bars is free in the BigBoss repository.



    8. WinterBoard

    WinterBoard was just recently updated for both iOS 6 and the A6 CPU, so WinterBoard is fully compatible with the iPhone 5. Themes, on the other hand, vary in success, as not all of them have been updated to work on iOS 6 or the iPhone 5 just yet. The theme pictured above is Elite Pro HD. WinterBoard is available for free in the main Cydia repository.



    9. Bolt

    Bolt will replace the battery icon in your status bar with a bolt icon whenever your iPhone 5 is charging. When you unplug your iPhone 5, the bolt will disappear and the only thing you will see is the battery percentage. It helps remove that somewhat superfluous battery indicator, when the percentage already tells you the status of your battery. It looks cool too. Bolt is available for free in the BigBoss repository.



    10. iFile

    iFile supports the iPhone 5 as well, giving you all four inches of the display to browse your iPhone 5’s internal filesystem. All of the features work, including copying and pasting files, linking Dropbox and moving files back and forth, and also installing .deb packages! This tweak is a must have for the everyday iPhone tinkerer. iFile is available with an unlimited free trial in the BigBoss repository.

    Also iPhone 5-compatible, but not pictured above:

      I got Click2Call installed this morning. I love that one.

      Still waiting on compatibility from "Remove Background" and "Make it Mine." I installed and set up Remove Background to kill apps when I double tap the status bar, but when I do it my phone goes into safe mode.

      I also am having trouble getting some SMS tones to activate in Winterboard. They're displayed in the Winterboard themes and checked, but when I respring they're not available in the Sounds section of settings.

      I think I'll go with TetherMe then since the purchase price for TetherMe is the same as the upgrade price for MyWi.

Any thoughts?
      Since last year themers must unlock their themes for certain compatible OS versions and devices at Cydia.
      If you get this massage this theme is probably not updated and ulocked for iPhone 5 or iOS 6.

      iOS 6 has some different graphics than iOS 5 and iPhone 5 has another screen resolution. Most of the UI works but e. g. all theme/app backgrounds/walls, dialer, music app or the background of the Notifcation center must be redone, including learning how to name and where to place this new graphics.

      Many themes (like most of mine) also use tweaks like Gridlock and iconoclasm that arn´t updated for iOS 6 or iPhone 5 yet. So even if i would have a iOS 6/iPhone 5 theme update for one of my themes i can´t/wouldn´t unlock/update the theme at Cydia because it wouldn´t work right.

      So you/we all must be patient, updating takes some time. And many of the thousands of themes at Cydia won´t ever be updated.

      Same here. I switched to PDANet when I found out that AT&T could possibly detect MyWi, but PDANet doesn't seem to work with iOS 6.1.

      Well, that sucks there were a few nice themes I knew that could be obsolete now.Anyway, I can't wait for some of them to be updated though because they were awesome on my iPad 3

      To enable tether me, do I just turn on hotspot for my iPhone 5?

      Anthony Bouchard can explain it to you. TetherMe works fundamentally differently. It uses the phone's own data packet transfer system. Apple just sees the phone itself doing the transfer. MyWi works differently.

      Remember though AT&T is still throttling after 5GB on unlimited. Naturally if you're tethering you'll get to 5GB quicker.

      Isn't 5 gb + "whatever" = Unlimited. Nobody said full speed. We are talking about unlimited data.

      So far only USB tethering is working with PDANet. Wifi tethering should be updated soon.

      Yes, but after 5GB, your speed is reduced to 56k. Woo Hoo!

      Zephyr is definitely $4.99 - Damn, I was all excited until I saw that price. I guess I balk at $5 tweaks. I'll have to keep my eyes out for a sale soon.

      To check an email on the go or to send a text message on Pinger, 56K is more than enough.

      56K > 0

      Here's a bug in Auxo I wanted to warn people about, it causes Cydia to run in a smaller format which is mostly unresponsive. I figured out a way to bypass it and wanted to let people know. Using Deck I was able to enter "Safe Mode" which allows me to enter Cydia, then you simply need to reinstall Auxo and it works perfectly fine. This bug usually happens after installing something that requires a reboot so not like it's really that big of a deal.

      iPhone 5, 6.1

      If you are using over 5GB just sending txt and emails, your fingers must get very sore!

      A "semantic" difference only. But I'll admit I had never thought about it from that angle before. :-)

      They seem dead over there.. Last update online: "Update 10/15/2011 - If you have updated your phone to iOS 5 or iTunes to 10.5, please update PdaNet to 5.30 from Cydia."

      Hasn't Tweeted in over a year. i'm going to try TetherMe.. I only use for emergency's anyway. I was very happy to find (while waiting for this JB) that Sprint let's you turn on their tether plan online(or using their iPhone app) and it works within minutes...AND they will pro-rate the $20 fee for even a single day. Not only that, but due to how their system works, you can use the full 2GB during that <$1 pro-rated day, and then again a week later.

      I agree the PdaNet project seems dead. They haven't responded to emails in some time either. That's too bad- it's been great for me under 5.1.1 and was always more stable for me than MyWi. Guess I'll try TetherMe as well.
