Pod2G iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak

As you can see, we have a sizable list of apps that work. What we still need are reports of apps that haven’t been carried over to iOS 5.1.1. If you notice an app that isn’t working, please mention the issues in the comments section. Not only will it help people decide whether to upgrade to iOS 5.1.1, but it will help us get in contact with developers who haven’t updated their apps for the new firmware.

Remember, if you get HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Errors (or similar messages) while downloading apps in Cydia, please don’t report the apps as non functioning. The error message only means that the apps couldn’t be downloaded in the first place, likely because the server was busy with too many requests. It has nothing to do with the app’s compatibility.

Don't forget to follow on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

  • 3rd gen ipad

    graviboard doesn’t really work on my 3rd gen ipad. idk if its other tweaks causes it but for now it ain’t working for me

  • Mrarkon

    Five-Icon Switcher causes my phone to freeze (and then respring) whenever I close five apps, so I guess that doesn’t work.
    And BiteSMS has always been glitchy on my phone. First time it would crash whenever I tried to send a picture, second time the number keyboard would be invisible when I replied to a text from the lock screen, and now it crashes my phone whenever I try to close it out of the app switcher (that was after I uninstalled Five-Icon Switcher). I’m on an iPhone 4 GSM.

  • R3dApple2

    Will Installus work?

  • M Woolweaver

    Barrel works better for me know than it did before…..and shrink would send to me sate mode after respring

Both iPhones are running 5.1.1 same firmware too. Would you guys see what is going on with this? Thanks

    pls help me…

  • omni crunk

    This is what i think. I think before jail breaking you should backup and restore your ipod touch, ipad, or i-phone to factory settings. I was checking this list out and for clarity i download some of the apps. My first check was GraviBoard and graviboard dose work well.
