iOS 6.1/6.0 And iPhone 5 Compatible Jailbreak Apps And Tweaks


With the release of evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6.1 – iOS 6, we expect Cydia developers to fix the compatibility issues with their jailbreak apps and tweaks as they get to test them.

So we thought it may be a good idea to track the jailbreak apps and tweaks that are compatible with iOS 6.1 and iPhone 5’s taller display. 

We’ll be testing the tweaks and regularly updating the list below. It would be very helpful if you can let us know in the comments if you have found a jailbreak app/apps that are compatible with iOS 6.1 and not listed below (assuming Cydia is loading fine for you).

  • Man

    But cydia won’t let me download anything

    • iPhoneHacks

      That’s due to the load. Try after sometime and let us know if you find any iOS 6.x compatible jailbreak apps.

    • DJ Flea

      Yes, I can’t download anything too.

  • James

    Cydia is not loading anything for me, nor can I download any apps. Know anything about this issue?

    • iPhoneHacks

      Its due to high load on the repository servers. Try after sometime when the traffic subsides.

      We are tracking all the issues with the evasi0n jailbreak here:

      • Raul Solorzano

        I found others tweaks that doesnt work or doesnt work properly:

        Airblue Sharing: (Reboot the idevice when you activate it)
        Anyattach; Doesnt show it in mail app
        Wifi2me: Problems when you rotate the idevice
        Google Maps: Dont show my position properly
        Pull to refress safari: Doesnt work

        • Raul Solorzano

          we have to add RETINAPAD to the list, it causes troubles with cydia and androidlock xt, those ones fail to render properly at screen. But the app works as usual and correct itself.

          Add Protube too.

  • hemi247

    Ok Not sure why, but I have successful jailbreak on iPhone 5 version ios 6.1
    And winterboard will not install? I thought it might just be that it was supported yet, but you have it on the list? So anyone else have this problem?

  • janne

    Cydia is broken,nothing is working,going back to 5.1

    • iPhoneHacks

      Please be patient and try after sometime rather than downgrading to iOS 5.1 (not sure if it is even possible as Redsn0w doesn’t support iOS 6.1 yet)

    • moe22

  • xero14

    sorry if i double posted this but 6.x untethered debian out now go to cydia if needed

  • Minor Solano

    Very easy to download, excellent job….Just one question.,,the final step:

    Step 11: Your device will now show a solid white
    background with a large Evasi0n logo. You will see the evasi0n logo appear
    twice, once briefly, and again for a bit longer. Once everything is completed,
    you’ll be taken back to the device’s Lock screen, signifying that the jailbreak
    procedure has been finished.

    I never see that happens. on iOs 6.1??

  • Minor Solano

    sorry, except for the lock screen…..Thanks guys…

  • ahfunaki

    I just want access to my purchases!

  • kingchristian

    Anyone know if “dash” will work on iphone 5??

  • dbDESIGN

    Disappointed that LockInfo5 doesn’t appear to be updated to accommodate the iphone5 larger screen. On the lock screen the app cuts off, it doesn’t cascade behind the swipe to unlock anymore. I’m pretty disappointed with the new LockInfo, certainly not as good as I remember and not as simplistic as it was previously.

    • PasserBy

      That surely can’t be right. … Not a user of lockinfo but wasn’t it only updated recently? Maybe someone else here can confirm their experience.

      On a side note, how do you get the

      • PasserBy

        How do you get the time to show on the weather NC?

        • j4nuS

          i like the old version better… i can put all i need on the lockscreen…

      • dbDESIGN

        oh it’s correct, this is a screenshot taken directly form my phone.

    Anyone know if all the emulator are compatible to the iphone 5?
    gpSPhone and all the other are compatible for ios6 but not for iphone 5?


  • j4nuS

    has anyone installed resupported4? not working for me.

  • Monty

    ive had problems with auxo on my iphone 5, everytime i double tap the home button and slide thru the multitasking pages, the phone resprings and launches in safe mode?

    trying to download aloud but getting http 1.1 403 forbidden error. using modmyi as source. any idea what is causing this? (I paid for the app too) :(

  • Sonu Diamond

    Getting Errors while installing other repos through cydia . plz help

    Error—->>>>”sub-process /bin/bzip2 returned an error code(2)”

  • jailbreaker

    I still have every now and then crash with lockinfo.

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    Actually Display Recorder 1.3.5 (latest) is not compatible with 6.1. It says dependency <6.1 but perhaps it works with 6.0-6.0.2 not sure. Great app, hope it gets updated soon.

  • sam

    How well is BiteSMS working for people? Had it on my old iPhone 4 and it crashed the device all the time, had to restart in safe mode daily. That’s the only one I’m waiting for…

    • ahfunaki

      Working fine here.

  • Rimoch

    scrolling board doesn’t work actually..

  • yeehaw

    Is anyone else having compatibility issues with Springtomize 2?

    • iPhoneHacks

      It looks like it is quite buggy at the moment. The developer is working on fixing them and should release an update shortly.

    • ahfunaki

      I haven’t had any issues? 6.1 on iPhone 5

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    Display Recorder 1.3.6 just came out and is compatible with 6.1. BTW if people are having problems downloading from Cydia, try REBOOTING your phone. Or just close cydia completely (not just background) and re-enter. It has worked for me so far. Also in some cases, if it doesn’t let you download, try again. Or hit modify and then install. These are some tricks I tried, and i’ve been able to download and install all that i’ve wanted.

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    In the comprehensive list of compatible tweaks ZEPHYR is listed as NOT COMPATIBLE, but I can confirm that IT IS CURRENTLY compatible (v. 1.4.2-1). Please update the list, don’t neglect one of the BEST tweaks out there.

    • iPhoneHacks

      Agreed, updated the list with Zephyr. Thanks!

  • vidmas

    winterboard kills weather!

    • iPhoneHacks

      Actually the issue is due to jailbreak process and a fix is in the works. It should be released shortly.

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    SpringFlash is UP AND RUNNING :) But it seems to have a small glitch where when double clicking the sleep button, it locks the phone while turning the flashlight on. Minor glitch, might even be fixable by activator or in SpringFlash’s settings.

  • jim

    do any of the free tethering jailbreak apps work on the iphone5 ? want to be able to really take advantage of my unlimited data…

    • My Name Is Mr. Ed

      It’s not really unlimited when you are using your device….Every carrier has a cap, even on the unlimited services. If you get caught using excessive amounts of data YOU WILL BE CHARGED! I know a few people is has happened to personally.

      • ScaryLarry

        I was told by Verizon CS that they do not charge more if unlimited, but they will throttle down speed if you go crazy i.e., over 50 gigs in a billing period.

    • Mike Reynolds

      i have it installed and no issues at all …tetherme!

    • Flyfisherman

      PDAnet isn’t free but works fine on my 4 just updated to 6.1 and did jailbreak with evasi0n today. I’ve been using it for almost 2 years on an AT&T unlimited account and never questioned. I switched to PDAnet when I read my old hot spot app was getting hit by AT&T . WORTH THE MONEY.

  • Kirsty

    Zeppelin and no icon shadow both work ios 6.1 iPhone 5 no problem.

    • Kirsty

      App switcher brightness
      5 icon dock/switcher
      3G unrestrictor 5

      Batteryinfo for notification center works but doesn’t fit the NC properly and overruns the edge of the screen on the iPhone 5.

      • iPhoneHacks


  • Ashur DeKelaita

    BADGECLEAR and CALLBAR up and running :)

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    MX Tube is in the house! :)

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    UnlimVideos is working, although they have not optimized the app to fit on the new taller iphone 5 screen.

  • Adrian D.

    Sbrotator does not work on iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1

  • j4nuS

    ikeywi and showcase works…

  • Sheldon

    I had problems with browserchooser.

    • Sheldon

      Ps: ipad 2, bc 1.0.1 from bigboss

    • Sebastian Rasch

      BrowserChooser works fine here, but Browser Changer, that I previously used, seems not to work on iOS 6/iPhone 5.

      • Sebastian Rasch

        Browser Changer works fine now in the latest version. I think Browser Changer is clearly superior to BrowserChooser since it doesn’t start Safari to forward then to another Browser.

  • j4nuS

    icaughtu asks to check settings and validation everytime phone resprings…

  • Tan Baocheng

    I’m waiting for gridlock, would like to know how long will the update comes in

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    Somehow in the midst of downloading all of the tweaks I use, I have contracted a very annoying glitch where the first letter of every word is capitalized by default. Has anyone else had this same problem? I have tried messing with the keyboard settings and nada… so I think it is most likely a glitch pertaining to one of the tweaks I have installed.

    • Ashur DeKelaita

      I discovered it was the ManualCorrect tweak, if anyone encounters the same.

      • Chuck

        Same thing happened to me. Use manual correct pro. it’s good on iOS 6 also ;)

        • Ashur DeKelaita

          I noticed that ManualCorrect has also been updated now. The first-letter of every word capitalization flaw is fixed. Back in business :) A good free option.

  • ビいいノおおドおお

    im waiting for gridlock

  • Ashur DeKelaita

    Anyone have a report on which Siri Tweaks are compatible with iphone 5 on 6.1? I don’t think the Hands Free tweak is working… :(

  • Drho2004

    Cydelete reboots phone when trying to delete any app from springboard (cydia app or regular app) removed cydelete and all is well. Cydelete not compatible

    • Guest

      You shouldn’t need cry cydelete as you can delete Cydia apps from springboard out of the box :-)!!!!

  • Anonymous

    OmniStat for NC only half works. You put it in your NC and also click on the pic chart to free your ram. If you try to kill all apps by selecting skull and crossbones, it resprings into safe mode.

    If you try and kill all apps with Deck, it also crashes and resprings into safe mode.

    If you want something similar to gridlock. Get iBlank. It’s a pain to use but until Gridlock is updated, that’s the best there is.

  • David Bell

    So far out of 12 Cydia apps (mostly purchased) the only I may have to pay for an upgrade is MyWi 5.5 (after paying $20) !! Seriously ???

    • Josh

      I upgraded mine no issues, no charge.

  • Jessica

    weathericon leaves my phone in safe mode.

    • Joshua

      Until opening the actual weather app works (try it!) I’d wager this will remain broken. It’s like the iBooks issue in 5, it’s a minor sand boxing issue here, they’ll get to it thru a Cydia update to the “evasi0n” JB after more critical things are fixed.

  • CyberMOnkey

    ChatPic is not iOS 6.1 compatible yet either.

  • Jaybro

    Flag paint doesn’t work either and ask to send has a bug where it stops you from sending a picture via text through the photo app

  • Sebastian Rasch

    Just tried “App Language Switcher” on iOS 6/iPhone 5 as well. Works as expected even though it says it’s only compatible to iOS 5.x.

  • Sebastian Rasch

    ‘Remove Background’ seems not to work with iOS 6/iPhone 5. iOS crashes to safe mode when activated.

      Try using Killbackgound. Its works

  • David Bell

    Just finished a complete restore on my 4S and a second jailbreak using the newest evasion 1.1 after experiencing ” Repeated Reboots” every time I turned on my iPhone and now I’m reading the compatibility Jailbreak Apps list and Winter Board is the only one with a “stay away for now” !! Of course the one I really wanted back again could be the cause of my problems the first time

  • David Bell

    and you can keep DreamBoard — Not even close to as good as WinterBoard
