iOS 5 Cydia package compatibility

Now that iOS 5 is publicly available, and a tethered jailbreak is possible on almost all iDevices that are capable of running iOS 5 (excluding the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S), those who are too impatient to wait for an untethered jailbreak to be released for iOS 5 (such as myself) have settled with tethered for now. Cydia developers have been hard at work bringing their apps, tweaks, themes and other packages up to date with iOS 5, and more are becoming compatible with the new iOS version every day. A compiled list of compatible, partially compatible, incompatible and unknown Cydia packages from what is known right now follows.

Some important notes about a few of the compatible packages follow:

  1. AndroidLock XT – Will work although, it will disable the camera button on your lock screen.
  2. Black Keyboard – Reports say it’s buggy.
  3. Gridlock – Requires IconSupport, which is not publicly available for download yet. The current version of IconSupport does not support iOS 5. The beta version does.
  4. iRealSMS – Reports say it eliminates the ability to send MMS messages.
  5. Pull to Refresh for Mail – Reports say there are some bugs with this.
  6. Scrollingboard – Reports say this can cause sluggishness.
  7. ultrasn0w – Only works on old baseband. More here.
  8. Winterboard – Not in Cydia, download .deb file here. Install through SSH.

Here are some packages that are partially compatible with iOS 5, which mostly work but contain a few bugs and other issues that may cause a few headaches. Only install these if you are okay with dealing with potential problems when using them:

App Switcher Ringer
biteSMS
Calltell
CleanStatus
Clock Plugin for LockInfo
Dynamic Table Strip
FastCopy
GuizmOVPN
iAP Cracker
iBlank
IconSupport
LockGestures
LockInfo
LSRotator
MultiIconMover
No Clock Status
StatusTweak
SwipeToMoveCursor

Issues reported with these partially compatible packages are as follows:

  1. App Switcher Ringer – This will change media volume, but has no effect on ringer volume.

  2. biteSMS – Currently in open beta.
  3. Calltell – Works, but isn’t compatible with iMessage.
  4. CleanStatus – Reports say that it doesn’t hide status bar objects correctly.
  5. Clock Plugin for LockInfo – Calendar doesn’t work.
  6. Dynamic Table Strip – Works for Contacts app, Phone app, but not iPod app.
  7. iAP Cracker – Reports say it conflicts with other apps.
  8. iBlank – The theme to remove shadows doesn’t work and you will be unable to respring your iDevice.
  9. IconSupport – The beta version works in iOS 5. The public version does not.
  10. LockGestures – Only tap gestures are working.
  11. LockInfo – Beta works, public version doesn’t.
  12. LSRotator – Works fine except for a glitch with the camera button.
  13. MultiIconMover – Beta works fine, get it here.
  14. No Clock Status – Works everywhere except Facebook and Cydia.
  15. StatusTweak – Moving the AM/PM in your status bar doesn’t work.
  16. SwipeToMoveCursor – Moves cursor two spaces instead of one space.

Now for the incompatible packages which you should avoid installing at all costs as they will cause you nothing but problems on iOS 5:

5-Row Keyboard
AlphaCon
BackForwardEnhancer
Backgrounder
Call InfoFields

Lastly, here are some packages with unknown compatibility on iOS 5. It is recommend that you also stay away from these packages until compatibility with iOS 5 is confirmed or an update is issued to bring support for it. Installing these is entirely at your own risk:

If you’re like me—you couldn’t wait for an untethered jailbreak and went ahead with a tethered jailbreak to get your hands on some of the jailbreak community’s finest work on Apple’s most advanced iOS version yet—enjoy the compatible and partially compatible packages on your iDevice(s), and be sure to stay far away from the incompatible and unknown packages until they are updated for iOS 5 or verified to be compatible!

    I jailbreaked my iphone 4 ios5 successfully ! but i cant find any new apps to be download in section ! i dying to find the way to download ! can you please help me in solving this!

  • keiran

    what kind off apps are you looking for

  • Warden

    Well hopefully my favorite (and currently incompatible) tweaks will work by the time the untethered JB is released to the public. Also, if anyone has any inkling of purchasing FastrR1n (5.0)… DON'T. There is no untethered JB for iOS 5 yet and they are scammers. Wait for the release from Chronic Dev Team…

  • Paul Berge

    Basically, no, you couldn't be more wrong. I really don't know how you can look at the list above and make that statement.

    Lockinfo, BiteSMS, SBSettings, Activator, Callbar, Winterboard, … None of these are useful tweaks to you?

  • canamman

    how do i SSH winterboard to my phone. I hace winscp and openssh and toggle ssh and downloaded the winterboard link from above but how do i get it on my phone? thanks

  • shenaniganizer

    Bytafont is fully functional (Harry Potter font working like a charm lol)… just thought you should know :)

  • Patrick Lutz

    There's no need to do that anymore, the Winterboard in saurik's public repo is now compatible with iOS 5.

  • Judd Smith

    Lockinfo for IOS5 has not been released to the public.. so it does not work

  • 5.0 sucks so far

    Also Incompatible: iPhoneDelivery – crashes SMS.

  • 5.0 sucks so far

    Also Incompatible: Custom Lock – crashes Springboard

  • 5.0 sucks so far

    Also Incompatible: SnoozeOrStop – damn i'm missing this.

  • 5.0 sucks so far

    Compatable (luckily): PhoneBuzzer and Ask to Send

  • 5.0 still sucks

    Incompatible: HoneScreenMusic: Clearly not ready for iOS 5 yet. Crashes SB.

  • 5.0 still sucks

    Incompatible: EZMp3.
