One of the new features in iOS 5 is the ability to hide your keyboard when viewing your SMS history in the iMessage app.

It didn’t take long, but there is now a jailbreak tweak available that mimics said functionality, and even allows you to hide the input box as well.

For longtime biteSMS users, this won’t be new to you, but if you’ve been hanging onto that old outdated Messages app, this is a must have tweak to add to your collection.

As you can see, not only are you able to hide the keyboard, but you’re able to enter a pseudo-full screen mode as well.

I don’t see how you’ve been clenching onto the iPhone’s terrible stock messaging app for so long, but if so, you’re going to want to go ahead and grab SMSHideKeyboard.

You’ll need to add Ryan Petrich’s repo in order to find it. His repo address is as follows: http://rpetri.ch/repo
