With a jailbreak available for iOS 5, many of you have been asking us to publish a list of jailbreak tweaks that are compatible with Apple’s latest mobile operating system.

So, instead of reinventing the wheel, we dug around the internet and found a user-generated list of jailbreak apps and tweaks that do work with iOS 5…


You can also edit the list via Google Docs, if necessary.

[Thanks Nick for the tip]

  • I gave you this list yesterday by email.

    • You’re right. I added credit at the bottom of the post. I looked around for a better list for quite a while, but this one turned out to be the best. Thanks for sending this in, Nick 🙂

  • ryan

    i tried winterboard and it crashes springboard all the time

    • kp

      u have to download the winterboard fix for iOS 5 from cydia, an then restart the phone to make it work..100% works on my phone….i have themes, an keyboard sounds that work!!!

  • Mathieu R.

    I really hope a folder app come out soon, the main reason why I jailbreak.

    Also, the list can be found pretty much everywhere on the internet. Not sure Nick is the real source.

    • I didn’t say Nick was the source, neither did he. He was however the one who sent this to me and suggested I post it, which happened to be the right time since a bunch of iDB readers were asking for such a list.

    Is there a jailbreak for the iPhone 4S??

  • WonkieInc

    There is no jailbreak for the 4s yet.

    Humanity never ceases to amaze me 0_o

      Are you kidding? Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. The Dev Team is by your side! 🙂 Good things come to those who wait. 😀


  • Tyalis

    Everytime i install multifl0w i’m throwed back to safe mode. is it me or is there an error in the list?

    • prplaya420

      dude cardswitchers better lol, try it i bet u will like it

      • Tyalis

        Cardswitcher is great for iphone, but doesn’t work on ipad and doesn’t have dashboard view like Multifl0w.

        But thanks for the tip anyway

  • AmpliHelix

    I wish they would edit LinkSafe as compatible. I have it on iOS5 and it works flawlessly.

  • Samuel

    I’m puting this on my favorites so when there’s a untethered jailbreak for the iPad 2,I’ll see this list again. ;D

  • Jav

    Infinifolders and multicleaner not working folks

    • gato

      MultiCleaner force safe mode.

  • David

    Is there an eta on jailbreak for 4s?

  • jared

    sweet!! now how about the untethered jailbreak?

    also, you guys should update your commenting section here, for some more fun. something sort of like engadget where we can reply and rate and etc.

  • Coach

    MyWi 5.0 works partially. The MyWi ondemand is not connecting through bluetooth. I have tried and tried it’s not working. I have contacted the people at MyWi and they are trying to work on the problem.

  • Gus

    I’m not sure if this has been asked already, but is there a jailbreak for iPhone 4s, and iOS 5, and while I’m at it iOS 6? :smartass:

    These lists are not meant to be definitive as there’s always the possibilty that one tweak might cause another not to work. I’m hoping that in the time it takes for an untethered jailbreak to be released, any conflicts/incompatibility issues are solved.

  • Joey

    Kp, how do i download the winterboard fix for ios 5 jailbreak

    • Kp

      Insanelyi repo

  • David

    This list isn’t very mobile theme friendly, also I’ve been meaning to ask where has the “skip to comments” bit gone from the top of the page? Thanks.

  • Jason

    noticed something wrong- you can change qTweet thru activator-

  • Daniel

    you need to add repo.insanelyi.com

    and search winterboard fix…

  • Gabriel

    Can somebody check if Spooftexting works?

  • Jas God


  • Shaz

  • Stevejob

    Anyone please tell me how can I get winterboard fix for ios5 ? Cause I can’t found it at cydia , is that any source to add on ? Please advise . TQVM !

  • DebTym

    SAMPREFS AND SAM are they really working? and I’m surprise that Push Doctor isn’t working in the list.. Mine is iOS 5 iPhone 4 .. and I don’t have an original carrier sim..so I hacktivated it.. so I want my push noti to be back again.. I first used Samprefs and Sam..but nothing happened..tried iPush test to test..nothing. Then installed Push Doctor.. then… after it was installed my phone asking me my apple id password for iMessage and Facetime..then i tested it using iPush test again..and it works like a charm..=) Though it made me afraid what on the list says about when you installed Push Doctor.. I just used my cydia..and it loads perfectly..

    • DebTym

      I tried Push Doctor again.. Modify – – -Re-install – – But yeah, I didn’t install . . only half of the package.. good thing it didn’t remove the original package I installed, and my Push Doctor is still there

  • kokhean

    The first thing that caught my eye was AppSync 5.0 in the list. LOL.

  • mostapha

    the rss feed not really working i got crush with notification center report that

  • mersim


    • Joe

      Will SAM PREFS WORK ON IOS5 ON MY 3GS with NEW BOOTROM? I’d like to use it to not only unlock after jailbreaking, but also to prevent battery drain.

      Will jailbreakme work to preserve baseband to be able to unlock on 3GS new bootrom?


  • Katie

    ok nice tweak for IOS5 but a lot of the people is still on the IOS4.Now is just all about IOS5.What about us?No new tweaks or apps for IOS4?WHY???

  • Jason Masters

    There is a tethered jailbreak for the 4s available today for 5.0

  • Greg

    No comments about Tlert? Does it work or not?

  • Lostios5

    hey i have a 3gs BB 6.15 running softbank network being that i live in japan and i have ios5. My cydia asked if i wanted to upgrade so i did and now on my phone has these “apps” that say Setup FieldTest Adsheet iOS Diagnostics. ANybody know how to remove these? thanks

    • David

      Just respring your iPhone.

  • Shaz

    hey is app sync working on 5.0.. when i respring all the apps i got from installous are gone!

  • tigo30

    Bluetooth mono sbsettings toggle is not working well, the iphone gets really slow and the sound is intermitent. it needs an update.

  • SpideyRules

    The only way this spreadsheet could be better is if it included a column for “Reboot \ Respring \ Return to Cydia” since all we have is a tethered jailbreak at the moment. Once untethered is available, who would care, but I thought of this because I just installed Winterboard and BiteSMS (beta) at work and now Cydia is waiting for a reboot, which has to wait until I get home.

    Just a thought to make a great resource maybe a little better.

  • qwertzuiop

    Running Indicator doesn’t work on iOS 5. Makes your Springboard crash when you open Apps

  • Infinite

    Sorry I would add this here myself, but doing it on my mobile is difficult.
    Obsidian HD works, but a few icons aren’t themed.
