Folks who have been wanting to get into developing jailbreak apps and tweaks will be happy to know that the process is about to get a whole lot easier.

ModMyi is reporting that users will soon be able to develop jailbreak packages using Apple’s easy-to-understand Xcode interface…

From ModMyi:

“A developer named Spencer James is nearing release of his project iOSOpenDev, which “sets up user environment, Xcode, and iOS SDK for ‘open’ development.” The project will come with Xcode templates for creating common types of jailbreak tweaks, including Activator listeners, command line tools, dynamic libraries, Notification Center widgets, SBSettings toggles, and Mobile Substrate tweaks. It will even build .deb files of the completed projects for when a developer wants to submit to Cydia for publication.”

This is huge news for anyone who has a little bit of programming knowledge, and wants to try their hand at creating jailbreak packages. James is thinking that iOSOpenDev should be available in the next week or so.

  • This is really super cool news, but we need more details on the environment.

  • And iOSOpenDev will be able to Windows too???? Please say yes :[

      Nope, requires Xcode, which is only for mac.

    • yes but on virtual machine under mac

  • This is great, it takes forever to make your own jailbreak tweaks.

  • I just want someone to make a tweak for ‘top shelf’ same as one of the intelliscreenx features & post it for free at Cydia. It’s just that I don’t think I would pay $10 for wanting to use one particular tweak. I just wanted that ‘top shelf’ tweak and put my sbsetting in it.

  • i like to be enterprise …… 🙂
    and make some needed for notification center widgets
