SBSettings Gets Updated with iOS 5 Support

By , Sep 27, 2011

There’s a handful of tweaks and utilities that are simply a must-have for jailbreakers. Obviously, this list can vary from person to person, but I don’t think that anyone would argue that apps like Activator belong in the Cydia Hall of Fame.

Another title that belongs in that category, maybe most of all, is SBSettings. The utility makes accessing system settings and functions a breeze. SBSettings was just updated, and all of you early adopters will be happy to hear that it’s now iOS 5 compatible…

Since Apple unveiled the new Notification Center in iOS 5, there has been speculation that SBSettings wouldn’t make the leap to the next firmware. With space available in the drop down menu, many believed we’d see the utility reincarnated as a widget.

UISettings is a good example of a Settings-focused widget, but it doesn’t have near the capabilities of SBSettings. Well now folks who are running the beta version of Apple’s next major software release can enjoy the real thing.

The most recent update to the utility brings it to version 3.3.1, and among the changes is added support for iOS 5. A lot of developers have been hesitant to update their apps for the beta software, but with a public release nearing, they’re starting to come around.

To download SBSettings for your jailbroken iOS 5 device, just pop into Cydia and add the http://thebigboss.org/ios5beta/ repo to your list of sources. Keep in mind that it’s still in beta itself, but early reports say the utility works well.

Have you tried SBSettings on iOS 5 yet? Let us know if you run into any bugs in the comments.

    YES! If UISettings had support for plugins I’d never look at SBSettings again.

  • Burge

    And best of all if you theme sbsettings the theme will also work on the drop down menu of notifications

    Hi,

    Does this need activator installed? i know in ios4 it was activated by swyping the status bar which was set in activator. I have installed activator and when i go into the activation Methods in SBSettings it has “everywhere Launch” as the header but no settings :(

    I’m on ios 5 beta 7

    Thanks
    Jay

      You need to go to notifications and turn it on..

    • Jay

      hey, thanks for your help :)

      i have it on in the iOS notifications and that allows access to the toggles? The screen shot above makes it look like the previous SBSettings with all data ip addresses

      i love SBSettings and if the iOS version is only at the toggle stage in notification centre im more than happy with that, just want to get all i can out of it :)

        If you swipe the status bar from left to right or right to left the old SBSettings comes down. Go to More and you’ll have all the old options (organized somewhat differently) as well as new ones for iOS 5. The only thing I don’t like so far is that 5 1/4 icons are crammed onto the Notification widget. UISettings looks a lot more stock with only 4.

    • QuarterSwede

      You can change it in SBSettings (swipe to activate SBSettings then choose “More”) under Dropdown Window > Activation Methods

      • QuarterSwede

        Sorry, just realized what you wrote. You can change it to At Home Screen, In Application or At Lock Screen by going to the Activator icon on the Springboard.

    That paragraph basically states that apps like Activator DO NOT belong in the Cydia Hall of Fame. If that’s what you meant, but from the context I don’t think so, than that’s fine, otherwise it should be …but I don’t think that anyone wouldn’t argue that apps like Activator belong in the Cydia Hall of Fame… OR …but I don’t think that anyone would argue that apps like Activator don’t belong in the Cydia Hall of Fame…

    It’s awesome that it’s been updated, though! :)
