You might remember that when iOS 5 was still in the beta phase we wrote about a big list of Cydia tweaks or jailbreak apps that were not working or not compatible with the iOS 5 beta. This was very handy for the beta testers and developers to have a quick look at the list and see what is working and what is not till now. The reason is as you know iOS 5 is major upgrade from the iOS 4 and there are changes deep down the hood that have lead to the incompatibility and crashes of many Cydia apps until the developers update these apps with the new version of the iOS. Unfortunately the list that we showed you at that time doesn’t seems to be updated with the recent changes and the fact that iOS 5 is finally released now.
But good for us that some developer has come up and took the difficult task to maintain a new much more updated list of compatible Cydia tweaks/apps for all of us! This list of compatible jailbreak apps is being actively maintained and can be helpful for many potential iOS device users that want to update their iPhone/iPad to the new iOS 5 but want to first check that if their favorite tweaks or Cydia apps will work with the iOS 5 or not. This list will provide you with that information. A sample of that list is provided below:
Don’t forget that to install any of these tweaks in the iOS 5, you must be jailbroken on the iOS 5. If your device is not jailbroken on latest iOS 5 then please follow any one of these guides to preserve the baseband while doing so for both Windows and Mac:
I would personally prefer the first guide based on the recently released Redsn0w version to create a custom firmware.
You can get the complete list of all the jailbreak that are compatible (or not) from here.
