Thread: Recommended Jailbreak Packages for iOS 5

  1. #1
    Default Recommended Jailbreak Packages for iOS 5
    If you have jailbroken your iDevice, you might be wondering what to do. You went through this whole process of installing this app called Cydia on your iDevice. You figured out that there were jailbreak packages by doing some research, but there are so many of them and you don't want to spend so much time going through the list. You'll also notice that because iOS 5.0.1 is a new OS release, there are only a few packages from the list that actually work.

    This topic will give you a head start on some really useful, productive, and customizing tweaks for iOS 5.0.1.

    For more information on adding sources on iOS 5.0.1, here is a link to my topic:

    To learn more about Icy, the alternative jailbreak installer to Cydia, please go to my topic here:
