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 like iJailbreak on Facebook, follow on Twitter and add to your circle on Google+ to stay up-to-date on all the latest Jailbreak and Apple news!

  15. Yep just posted than read this. Epic fail. But working flawlessly on iPhone 4

    “oh and mc pro works on iPhone but not on Ipad even when Cydia says its a tweak for ipad ”

    Ah, that explains it.

  17. Nabiel Hussain says:

    siri glowing apple also works

  28. Mrarkon says:

    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.

  29. R3dApple2 says:

    Will Installus work?

  30. M Woolweaver says:

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

  38. Installous doesn’t work for me. The IPA simply disappears from the list and the filesystem after downloading.

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

    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.

  99. Imovies.. PLease help and do somthing for it to work on IOS 5.1.1
