    There is an app I want but it says I need OS5 version - is there a cydia app to have it not check or trick the app?

    There is a way to trick the device into believing it is running a different version of iOS. (Essentially fooling both the Appstore and Cydia)

    I use this method so I can run games that require iOS 4.3+ even though I'm still running 4.2.1

    If your still on iOS 4 and the app you want to use requires iOS 5, it would be a bad idea to spoof your device. The app more then likely actually needs the firmware update...

    Anyway...

    Navigate to:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

    Edit via Property Viewer using iFile.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>ProductBuildVersion</key>
    <string>8C148</string>
    <key>ProductCopyright</key>
    <string>1983-2010 Apple Inc.</string>
    <key>ProductName</key>
    <string>iPhone OS</string>
    <key>ProductVersion</key>
    <string>4.2.1</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    Edit ProductBuildVersion and ProductVersion strings

    e.g: Changing from iOS 4.2.1 to 4.3.3

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>ProductBuildVersion</key>
    <string>8J2</string>
    <key>ProductCopyright</key>
    <string>1983-2010 Apple Inc.</string>
    <key>ProductName</key>
    <string>iPhone OS</string>
    <key>ProductVersion</key>
    <string>4.3.3</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>
