    – Five-Column Springboard
    – GridLock
    – Infinifolders
    – Installous
    – Shrink

    • tmel4198

      anything that requires IconSupport like gridlock wont work on iOS 6 yet, gridlock update comes out soon!

    • iPhoneHacks

      Thanks for the tip Slick!

      • Slick

        no prob!
        cant believe they didn’t add “swipe selection” to ios 6

    • Slick

      Zephyr, Activator, style unlock , app switcher brightness, fake carrier, foldercloser, no page dots, nonewsisgoodnews, nospot, nostorebutton, poof
      all installed and wroking
      I had to restore twice and jailbreak all over
      1st time i cant remember wat i installed which then screw up the jb
      2nd was after “sbsettings”
      but i did had that working first time weird huh?

  • Dougster

    I have PDAnet working just fine on IOS6.

    • seetonydrum

      Really? How about 6.1?

      • Marcus Stewart

        PDANet on IOS 6.1 initially would not work with WiFi Tether but did work with USB only for me. When I tried to re-install it… yeah I got the whole phone was deactivated. On top of that my computer would recognize it but kept giving an error so I couldn’t do anything about it. I ended up forcing my phone into recovery mode which allowed the computer to see it properly again then restored 6.1 and reapplied the jailbreak to get it back. It’s not a fun process and can scare the piss out of you if don’t know what your doing.

        • Longfellow No

          Can you post the process of restoring the phone. I didnt see compatibility list and PDAnet deactivated my phone. Now Im at a loss of how to restore. Thanks

        • Longfellow No

          could you post how you recovered your phone? PDAnet deactivated the phone and Im not sure how to recover. Thanks

        • seetonydrum

          PdaNet (6.01 newest version) does work. No issues. You may have to add the the repo to get the latest version.

        Explain why evasi0n works then.

        • iPhoneHacks

          You probably missed it, but I made that comment 14 days back before evasi0n was even announced. At that time there was no tool available to jailbreak iPhone 5.

  • irfan

    i accidentally installed unlockize and just found out it’s not compatible with ios 6. how can i unlock my phone wtih out crashing unlockize?

  • izzboz

    i can say that five icon folder doesnt work on ios 6.1. the number of items you picked to be on a line before now is the number of items you put in that folder with a max of 10. if you put more than 10 in some of the icons disappear and you need to take the other icons back out to see them again.

    five icon dock works perfectly tho…

    some others that dont work is carbone’s ice keys and speed intensifier.

    Pandora downloader worked but if you do a hard reboot it will open to the set up screen on ipad 3 with ios 6. You will have to restart holding the volume up button and uninstall pandora downloader and restart to get your tweaks working again.
