Apple has done a fantastic job by immediately fixing iOS exploits with constant firmware updates to keep hackers at bay. As a result, jailbreaking has been largely marginalized, resulting in the abandonment of a large number of optimizations by developers that were in turn incompatible with later Jailbroken versions of iOS.
What's more, with the evolution of advanced devices like the AMOLED-equipped iPhone X and its successors, it has become much more confusing to search packages that are appropriate for your particular iPhone model. Cydia does not have the native ability to instantly see if a package is working on your device or not.
Fortunately, there are optimizations in Cydia to make it easier to browse other compatible customizations. Compatimark of CP Digital Darkroom is one such optimization because it identifies compatible badge packages for easy recognition. The Tweak is free and fairly easy to install and activate, though you must first install an external repo in Cydia to get it in your hands.
Step 1: Install repo
Compatimark is not directly available in Cydia I need to add a separate repo to get it first. Open Cydia and tap the Sources tab. Tap "Edit" and then "Add". At the URL prompt, type repo.packix.com and tap Add Source. When the repository is installed, tap Return to Cydia.
If the repo was successfully installed, go to the Search tab and type compatimark in the search bar. Select the displayed tweak, click "Modify" in the top right corner, and then click "Install" at the prompt. On the confirmation page, select "Confirm" and then "Restart Springboard Restart" when the tweak is completely installed.
Compatimark will automatically turn itself on when your iPhone is completely free Cydia is excited about new and exciting tweaks to install and try.
When searching for optimizations in Cydia, golden or blue badges with check marks will appear to the right of many packages indicating their compatibility with your device. Blue badges mean optimizations that are suitable for multiple iOS versions, from iOS 9 to iOS 11. Gold badges, however, indicate improvements that are compatible with certain iOS versions, such as iOS 11 only.
It's worth noting that the badges in Cydia work everywhere. They are not only displayed in the "Changes" section, but also when searching for packages in individual repos on the "Sources" tab. Most importantly, they appear next to tweaks within the active search and the corresponding results pages.
Unfortunately, Compatimark is far from foolproof, as it does not automatically detect compatible apps is searched. Instead, the tweak must enter additional encodings into its tweaks and packets to be recognized and recognized. Because of this, you may still need to visit the Details page to see some enhancements that you can use on your device.
