The only rule is no piracy talk. Since Installous is gone, that makes this easier I hope. If you want to talk about piracy, find another forum to do so. Talk here about anything else Jailbreak related, and keep such discussions out of the deals thread.

First of all, here's where you can get the jailbreak:

http://evasi0n.com/

It took me about 6 tries to jailbreak my iPhone 4 running 6.1. Most of the time it failed near the start. A couple times it started to do the jailbreak and then said that it couldn't reach "the device". I just kept trying and eventually it worked. It's a little scary. It seems to restart a lot, and it goes to a black screen for a long time several times, but it does work. Resprings seem to also involve that long black screen restart now. Others have had it work quicker.

So far here's what I've got installed, and they all seem to work:

Paid
-----
Navigate From Maps
iFile
MyWi 6.0 (a $4.99 upgrade is required from version 4 or 5)
My3G (installed fine, but not yet put to use)
ScreenDimmer

Free
-----
MapsOpener
Unlock iOS6 Maps
Sparrow+
Activator

List of all Cydia tweaks currently working/not working with iOS6.

Also to all new jailbreakers I >>>>>HIGHLY<<<<< recommend you do a full backup/DFU restore of your iDevice prior to jailbreaking. It will make your jailbreaking a MUCH smoother process. After the jailbreak you can restore from backup if you wish or just start fresh. You can upload your contacts/photos in the iCloud.

Also the weather app is a known issue I know it effects iPhone 5's (including mine) but a fix is coming soon. Until then the weather channel app is very free and very good.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

This is one of the main reasons I don't like to buy jailbroken apps. I HATE the idea of paying for the app again just to run it on updated firmware. It's absurd. This and the high price of the apps with virtually no sales. I almost never buy apps for more than a dollar.

I mean that it's fine even after jailbreak! But I've only done one thing since jailbreaking, and that is to add
184.72.115.86 search.yahoo.com
to /etc/hosts

I'll hold off on messing with anything else until I hear that things are better.

I'm alright with the upgrade fee on MyWi. I mean, sure, I'd have preferred $0, but I didn't hesitate to pay the upgrade fee. I've tested it out a little and so far it is working great.

I also installed MapsOpener, although I don't think it does what I thought it would do. I was expecting it to make any app that opens something in the Maps app, instead open it in Google Maps, but I think all it does is make google maps links open in the google maps app instead of the browser. I guess that's better than nothing.

Cydia is now working way better. It seems to have gotten through the initial flood.

The Weather app crashes on my iPhone 4, so it's not just the iPhone 5 that is affected. Reportedly they have figured out the problem and it will be fixed soonish. Also they are working on fixing the long reboot time that I've seen. From what I can tell, we'll get these fixes as updates in Cydia.

Here's a few people on twitter apparently involved in the development?

It still works. I used it last night on my iphone 5. It just doesn't fit the whole screen. Note that a lot of older JB apps still work perfectly fine. Just bc they aren't formatted for iphone 5 doesn't mean you can't use them.

Post your lock/home screen! Still plan on making some more changes, but I had to JB my wife's phone as well so I haven't had much time yet.

Tweaks used:

Winterboard - Transparent Status Bar for iOS 4, Transparent Dock
Activator

various other little functionality tweaks

I looked at gpSPhone and I guess Cydia still isn't 100% because I get a partial listing and the Install/Buy button says "Recheck". Tapping that doesn't help.

So I had bought GPS phone back with my iphone 4. Now whenever I went into account management to try and redownload it for my iphone5, I would get that "Recheck" too.

When I pulled it up from cydia search (rather than account management), it actually worked. This was the case for a few other apps I've paid for. Instead of redownloading from account management, I had to search for them. It still remembers you paid for them.

I got Sparrow set up as the default mail app and enabled push notifications. That was one thing I missed quite a lot when I upgraded to iOS 6, I've been making do with Gmail for the past month or two but Sparrow is so much nicer.

Also, the new LockInfo is very clean, a completely different design philosophy than the old "infodump" version. It's a free upgrade to existing users and it's currently on sale for $3.99, with a 14 day free trial. Intelliscreen X refugees, or anyone seeking some sort of lockscreen usability increase, may want to give it a look.

Sparrow+ on Cydia makes mailto links open Sparrow's compose instead of Mail, and you enable push notifications by inserting some code into Sparrow's info.plist. You'll need to dig around in iFile or some other similar utility, find the bundle for Sparrow.app, open info.plist in a text editor, and insert the following lines:

  <key>UIBackgroundModes</key>
<array>
<string>voip</string>
<string>audio</string>
<string>continuous</string>
</array>

These go down towards the bottom of the file, just before the line "<key>UIDeviceFamily</key>"

The hardest/most time consuming part is finding the correct bundle since the titles are all gibberish numbers and letters. If you have a paid license for iFile you can just search for Sparrow.app, otherwise you'll have to open each bundle one by one until you find it. It may be easier to do this on a PC in iExplore or something so that you can see folder contents more quickly and easily, write down the bundle folder's name and then browse to it on iFile.

So I really wanted to get the ocean view theme to work, but I'm running into to issues when trying to tweak it.
This is the original theme:
http://www.ithemesky...an-View-LS/4685

I'm using ifile to edit the .html and .css on my phone manually. I've changed the background and color of the clock. Now I just need the position moved up (so it isn't obstructed by my password) and the square behind the day to fit correctly. Anyone familiar with .css/.html have any tips?

I guess I should have just searched for Sparrow! I see Sparow+ and in the description it says it does enable push notifications, so I guess you don't need to do any editing. I'll give it a shot. Thanks!

I see. It didn't used to. Maybe it automatically inserts that code now, but I definitely had to do it manually in the past.

Yep, it works great!

Also the fix for the Weather app and the long reboot is up in Cydia. Might need to refresh to see it. However some are reporting that the Weather app is still broken. I'll find out shortly....

EDIT: well the reboot after install was just as long as ever, but hopefully I'll find that future reboots will be faster. However I can verify that at least on my iPhone 4 the Weather app is now working. Yeah!

I just powered off and back on and it booted normally (i.e. not all the black screens and nonsense and was much faster). Yeah!

Yeah, same here, I just love the messages+ functionality, btw, what theme are you using? Prestige HD? That doesn't seem to be compatible yet....

I love suave HD, but it seems that it hasn't been updated and the version I downloaded didn't change all the icons....

#23 crunchewy

That Sparrow+ thing worked for a little while (push notificaitons), but soon I was not getting any push notifications. I think maybe it only works as long as the app is still in the background and hasn't been tossed out of memory? Not sure. In any case it's not working too well.

Also, while Unlock iOS6 Maps does indeed unlock navigation and the 3D option on my iPhone 4, I tested it out and it worked horribly. Sometimes I get no map, usually I get no directional arrow. Etc. The navigation actually works - you can follow the voice - but the visuals are messed up. I ended up removing that hack. Will stick with Google Maps.

I'm using prestige HD. Downloaded straight from themeit app and it works perfectly.


Also, FullForce For Phone is a must have if you have an iPhone 5.

Use the code I posted earlier then, I can assure you that it works flawlessly.

Sweet! Got mines to work as well, themeit looks to be a great app, I need to stay away from it though. Some of those icons look really cool.

One last question, how did you get that one line of date with the day on IntelliscreenX? I tried ISX Ticker, and it also has the rss feeds, I don't need that.... Thanks in advance!!!

Wow, you guys have some awesome themes. I can never seem to find anything worth while. I use LockInfo (trying Intelliscreen atm) and it takes up the whole lockscreen so I suppose themes aren't as important to me.

Thanks @Malik!!!

@Chrono Gear, themes are more for the springboard icons and the little things like status bar, but I think it's just all preference. You can pretty much spend tons of time just tweaking and getting it setup, or you can just be happy with some smaller tweaks like zeppelin for changing your carrier logo. (You can get batman or a spaced invader for example)

Whenever I try themes with icons, I'm always happy for a few moments, but then I see all the icons I have that aren't themed and then look terribly out of place. Theme removed.

That Sparrow+ thing now seems to be working for push notifications. Maybe it was a temporary outage that I was seeing yesterday. Though now I'm not entirely sure I like having push notifications - I really don't need to know right away that Woolrich has new markdowns. LOL!
