The foundation for the success of Jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is ‘Cydia’ which is now used by millions of users worldwide. But most people only know of one or two apps which are compatible with jailbroken iOS 5, such as the great MyWi 5.0, the popular 3G Unrestrictor or the pretty ones, such as the ones that gives android-style lock “AndroidLock XT”.
Actually, there are a lot of iOS 5 compatible Cydia applications and tweaks out there, but since they all are scattered; it is difficult for us to find the right one. So, we thought we’d help you out by showing you the complete list of top cydia apps that should get you started on your device running iOS 5 and above. The best thing is that the list is not static and is updated in real-time. You must bookmark this page and “revisit” to check if it fits with the iOS 5.0 IPSW.
Let me clear few points before you blindly follow this list. Despite being compatible with iOS 5, Winterboard has not been listed in Cydia yet, you have to download .deb file here and get it installed via SSH. Ultrasn0w unlock only works on old basebands. With iRealSMS app installed, you’ll not be able to send MMS messages and Scrollingboard might slow down your iPhone or first generation iPad.
In case your favorite app is incompatible, don’t you worry? The jailbreak developers are working as fast as they to adapt their tweaks and packages to iOS 5 firmwares. If any fully compatible tweak is causing any sort of issue, report us, we will get in touch with the devs to fix it.
This spreadsheet lists name of application with partial iOS 5 compatibility too. But, I would recommend you to refrain yourself from installing these or the apps where the compatibility is unknown on your jailbroken phone or iPad.
Let us know in the comments if there are any we have missed, which you would like added in the list.
