Current List of iOS 5 Compatible Cydia Packages
Numerous Cydia tweaks are currently being updated for iOS 5. As of late, this is what we know.
iOS 5 is currently jailbreakable using redsn0w 0.9.9b5. The jailbreak is tethered meaning that you will need to connect your device to a computer every time that you restart the device; and 'boot tethered.' Rest assured, that along with the Siri porting project, iPhone hackers are working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
While iOS 5 is new and quickly becoming a big hit for most iDevice users, jailbreak devs are currently working as fast as they can to adapt their jailbreak tweaks and packages to iOS 5 binaries. The transition from iOS 4 to iOS 5 will take a few weeks, maybe months – as it did when iOS 4 came out, nothing happened over night. But, as of late, this is what we know about tweak and package compatibility between Cydia and iOS 5:

They don't work. I don't even recommend trying them. They will either plague you with errors, springboard crashes, app crashes, freeze-ups, or just general problems. Stay away from the red coated tweaks on this page.
Currently Unknown Compatibility with iOS 5:
- Ask to Send
- GridTab for Safari
- HeadingLock for Maps
- Link Identity Editor
- OpenNotifier Premium Pack
- Rotation Inhibitor
- ShakeToUndo Killer
- Volume Boost
- YourTube 2
I don't recommend installing the apps where the compatibility is unknown. They come with the chance of possibly putting your device in the same state as the apps that are not compatible. I would stay away from these too, until they are verified.
Props to The_Ben for the wonderful list of Cydia applications. Any that he missed that I knew about, I tried to add myself.
So now that you know what tweaks are/aren't compatible with iOS 5, what will you choose to do with your device? Will you go ahead with the tethered jailbreak until the untethered jailbreak? Or will you wait for the untethered jailbreak? Some of you might have decided that iOS 5 does everything you want it to and you've decided not to jailbreak at all. Keep in mind that many of the tweaks that are not compatible with iOS 5 are being worked on. Some of the tweaks that I know for sure are getting worked on are: Infinifolders, Infinidock, and Springtomize.
If I left anything off of the list and you have any information as to its compatibility, please leave a comment below so that other readers can benefit from your information.

Most themes will not work properly with Winterboard on iOS 5 (It's the Winterboard I downloaded here). It will load some parts (such as wallpapers and icons, but not other UI such as themed docks, shadows, etc.) but I think it is caused by the device loading some sort of cache.

Thanks for the list. A lot of stuff I use and need like Backgrounder; User Agent Faker; and WeatherIcon are redlisted. These are useful tools, which I will wait until they are all compatible. Nice work and thanks for taking time to compile this list. Will keep my eye on any new updates.

Any Jailbreak Out For 4s & Windows?
10-15-2011, 06:11 PM #14
Did you install Winterboard off Cydia first and then run this deb over the top? Winterboard depends on some things and won't work right if you just installed the deb on its own.

10-15-2011, 06:12 PM #16
Kaos, did you install Winterboard via Cydia or though the method mentioned above?

Nice list. Really helpful.Modmyi NBA thread --> http://modmyi.com/forums/chit-chat/7...ba-thread.html

Are these installable on a tethered jailbreak? I am really unversed with the tethered J/B. So you install as normal, then when you restart, you boot tethered and your good to go?
