The jailbreak is the same as it is/was on previous devices. Cydia will use the full screen height, as well as iFile, but other packages may or may not be updated for the iPhone 5 screen yet. You can always contact a package's developer via the package's "Author" link in Cydia to request them to make their package support iPhone 5.
