    I just jailbrake for the fist time my iPad 2 3G with IOS 5.1.1 and need a SMS app for my iPad (one of the main reasons for my jailbraking ). I tried to install SwirlySMS . for iPad 3G but it shows a big warning that my IOS version is not supported. I need just to send and receive sms text message. Any idea or suggestions ? My microsim can send sms (ive tried with a cell phone and it does)

    The default message app should do that. Just turn on IMESSAGE in your settings.

    Yes, this is a limitation with the free version.
    The paid version of SwirlySMS works fine. Ive been using it for a long time now in my ios5.

    This is one of those strange situations with Cydia.

    Once you purchase a package, Cydia will allow you to install it on any device you choose, EVEN IF the compatibility with your device and version of IOS is not confirmed.

    So, in this case, because I (and Rushh) already own this product, Cydia will let us install it on iPad3 5.1.1.

    If however you don't own the product and Cydia does not yet have official confirmation from the Author of a tweak that it works, then it will not let you purchase it. This is to prevent the major admin headache of folks purchasing stuff which may not work and then seeking a refund.

    The best thing you can do in this situation is get in touch with the Author using the contact details in Cydia and ask him to update the relevant package information so that it will install.

    Hope that clarifies.

    I never KNEW that!! But it explains many issues I've had with Cydia over the years. I guess I understand why they do it - but it's really frustrating.. They have to rethink that whole process.

    Giving them just over 12 hours to respond is probably a little unrealistic! :D

    I would suggest a week or so ;)
    Always worth checking to see if the dev has a Twitter account and send a message on that too...
