Winterboard now compatible for iOS 5 [jailbreak]

If you are currently jailbroken on iOS 5 you can now return to skinning and theming your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your heart's content -- Saurik's most recent update to Winterboard (0.9.3901) adds iOS 5 compatibility.

Although Winterboard is now compatible with iOS 5 it still isn't safe to assume that all themes and skins are. As always, make sure you're reading the descriptions carefully. In most cases themes just don't apply properly if they haven't been made compatible but it's still good to check.

Anyone found any awesome themes that work with iOS 5 they want to recommend? Let us know!

It was also written by the creator of Cydia, Jay Freeman (Saurik).

Want to get rich? There's a jailbreak for that!

Kevin Lee, a student at George Mason University, claims he has made over $50,000 in one calendar year just offering jailbreak services to people. It began when he helped his friends and family members Jailbreak. Then word of mouth started getting him over 30-40 clients a week. Believe it or not, some people really don't know they can just visit our TiPb jailbreak page or our TiPb Jailbreak forums and find guides and tutorials to help you do almost anything yourself (yes, that was a shameless plug).
