Which Cydia Tweaks And Applications Work With iOS 5.1/iOS 5.1.1? Help Us Compile A list
We already reported today that Grant Paul would not be updating Spire for devices running iOS 5.1.1. Despite the fact that Spite apparently works with iOS 5.1 (well, as well as it ever works), porting Spire to iOS 5.1.1 is apparently impossible due to Apple encrypting Siri in iOS 5.1 onwards. With this in mind, we are compiling a list of Cydia tweaks and apps that do and do not work in iOS 5.1.1.
Since it seems that a fair bit of software isn’t fully compatible with iOS 5.1.1, we have decided to compile a list of software that is and isn’t compatible with iOS 5.1.1.
In terms of other official announcements, Filippo Bigarella’s apps such as Springtomize, UnlockFX and CleverPin are all fully compatible with iOS 5.1.1 and Absinthe 2.0. However Password Pilot Pro still needs more work to be compatible with 5.1.x.
I’ve seen reports in web forums that the following tweaks and apps do not currently work with iOS 5.1.1: HD icons, Mame4iOS Reloaded, RetinaPad, Rotation Inhibitor, Switchy, nes4iphone, snes4iPhone. Some users were panicking because apps did not install from Cydia, but this was likely because the servers timed out due to high traffic on the some of the repos’, and not because the of issues with the software itself. With that in mind, we will try to verify which apps do not work in the near future.
Apps which have been confirmed to work so far include OpenSSH, SBSettings, Unfold, WinterBoard, Zephyr, iFile, infinifolders and infinidock.
Do your favorite tweaks support iOS 5.1.1? Is anything broken? Please lend us a hand and tell us what is and isn’t working. You can use the comments section below.
