On the heels of iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, released earlier today, some cydia applications or tweaks does not seem to work at all. Here is a list (updated constantly) of some bugs that you can possibly meet after jailbreaking your iOS device running 5.0.1 firmware.
The application iFile crashes at launch. Expect an update soon. For time being you can use MyFile (free), which works perfectly fine on jailbroken iOS 5.0.1.
Another cydia app iPhoneDelivery that helps you to acknowledge receipt of your text messages (SMS) on your iPhone is not working. Expect an update on the official repository of the developer.
Activator and bitesms cydia apps are not working too. iBooks has also stopped working. The reminder icon is now just a white icon, after jailbreaking iOS 5.0.1 on iPod Touch 4G.
Some of the users are getting “The requested modifications cannot be applied do to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed”. In order to fix it, Restore to fresh 5.0.1 and then jailbreak with 0.9.10b1.
In case you are stuck at “exploiting with limera1n” while jailbreaking iPhone 4 iOS 5.0.1 on Windows 7, follow the fix below. Right click on redsn0w, Properties, Compatibility, then you’re going to find “Change settings for all users” click on it, chose it to run with Windows Vista compatibility, and check the box that says run as administrator. Then run it, and it will work like a charm for you.In case it doesn’t work, restore your device through itunes, and then restored the settings from the back up. Jailbreaked it again. It should work now.
If you get the white Cydia icon try these steps
- Turn the device off then back on.
- Open up Cydia and install then uninstall any package.
- Re run Redsn0w over the top.
NOTE: Due to new Corona 5.0.1 untether, cydia repos are hammered. Things will be slow. Just try later if you get errors.
Watch out this space. We will be updating the post with necessary links as an when required. In case you’re facing any other issue related to redsn0w 0.9.10b1 or Corona 5.0.1 untether jailbreak, sound off in comments. We will include them in post with proper fix.
[UPDATE 1]: The registration server got bugged and lead to an iFile crash. It should work now!
