This is not the right time to be a jailbreak tweak developer. As we had clearly predicted, Apple is going after all those little jailbreak tweaks and are now implementing them in iOS 5. The latest one to date is the ability to mark several emails as read at the same time.

If you go to your inbox, hit the Edit button, select several messages, and tap “Mark”, you are given the option to either flag those emails, or mark them as read…

This is a direct response to the “Mark Read” jailbreak tweak we covered a few months ago. Unlike Apple new iOS feature, Mark Read allows you to select all your emails at the same time. You will still have to select them one by one in iOS 5.

What do you think?

    iOS5 is taking them down one at a time. Why would some Jailbreak… Themes!!!

  • c0edx

    One more thing, iOS 5 all the way!!!

    Until Apple implements a BiteSMS-type feature, then I will always jailbreak.

    More things taken from Jailbreak = Less tweaks from Cydia = More stable phone

    HURRAY!!!

  • Shaz

    omg~ finally! thank god!

  • Joshua Lee

    Finally. Now if they only added sbettings and themes, that’d be enough to keep me from jailbreaking. Although, I probably still would just for the fun of it. =P.

    Still needs an unread inbox, from either apple or the jb community.

    IOS5 looks like it might finally pry my hands away from my blackberry. Most of the “new” features are features that have been on my BB since my first gen Pearl, and have what kept me in that camp. Now with the new mark multiple emails as read, ichat (and more friends moving to iphone from bb), as well as the notification center I’m finally getting closer and closer to jumping ship. Only thing keeping me? I bloody hate touch screen keyboards.

      LK, no worries dude (or dudette), my sister had the same issue about the screen and didnt want to leave her Nokia for the same reason. She, and I myself, quickly got used to the keyboard

  • Me dammit

    I was so hoping for a “mark all”…silly iPhone just downloaded 200 messages from the mail server and I’ve got to tap each one. Stupid. If you’re gonna go after the jailbreak app, don’t half-ass it.

  • Pete

    True, but you still can’t mark all as read, you have to select one at a time… sigh, I guess IOS 6??
    I’m a BB owner with an iPAD which I Love to death, but come on guys, some of this stuff is 101 (and that’s from an English guy) Pete
