If you’re one of the people that – after updating to the 5 or 5s – has found their aftermarket lightning accessories no longer working and getting the dreaded “This cable or accessory is not and may not work reliably with this iPhone” error you may be in luck. There’s a great little Cydia tweak called Unauthorized Lightning Cable Enabler in the http://parrotgeek.net/repo/ source in Cydia. Users have reported mixed results but it’s worth a shot considering it’s free and might give you new life to your old accessories!
UPDATE: It appears this tweak has been pulled from the parrotgeek.net repo.
for anyone asking about the lightning cable thing: I deleted it because it never worked

We will update when we find out more. Until then you can find this same tweak (same name, version, and author) on the hackyouriphone repo by adding them as a Cydia source.
NOTE: you will get a warning that there are illegal or pirated items in this repo, but as far as we know this tweak isn’t illegal or stolen from anywhere and that warning refers to other items on that repo. If that’s all fine an dandy, here’s the url: http://repo.hackyouriphone.org/
