Sometimes our iDevice’s act crazy, unpredictable even. Sometimes, it’s necessary to attempt to troubleshoot issues.

That’s pretty much the only reason I could ever see a tweak like RestartAlerter coming into play; when troubleshooting issues.

Yep, it’s a tweak that alerts your when your iDevice restarts or resprings, and that’s pretty much all it does…

Again, you’re probably not going to want to install this unless you are troubleshooting random device reboots and resprings, but even then, you’d still be hard-pressed to find a real reason to install this jailbreak tweak.

Perhaps our readers can come up with a valid reason. So, tell us: Why would you use RestartAlerter?

  • At least it’s free..

      • I didn’t say it was good ..I said at least it’s free… With so many pointless tweak coming out which are paid its nice to see a free pointless tweak

        Free or not, a pointless tweak is a pointless tweak but I will agree on the fact that there are so many of them.

      • You words imply that I think this tweak is good …at no point have I said it was ..I said at least it’s free ..with so many tweaks coming out ..ETC ETC..see post above ..
        I wouldn’t even tell anyone about this , let alone install it..

  • If it could tell why the device was restarted it would be awsome.

    • It would probably be in the form of a crash report. Gibberish though. 😛

    Why do you make videos on so lame tweaks? It’s a shame..

    If you rely on apps that run in the background and that do not auto start this could be helpful. Possibly some messaging or VoIP app.

    I think it’s good if you want to know if your device did or didn’t restart when you are away

    And that may help you to know if there was a problem you don’t know

    Like if the device restart a lot during the day….

  • and why does it matter if it restarts by itself?… My jailbroken iphone sometimes restarts itself but… i don’t really care. One will get used to it.

    • nan adi

      If your iPhone restart itself that is a sign for problem in the system you better back up…

      You never know when it going to stop coming back to life

    • mine use to do that.. and i was scared it would eventually just not turn back on.. after updating a couple tweeks and deleting ones i didnt realllly need. all is good now.. i think updating it to the latest redsnow jailbreak helped too.

    lol… I was amazed that Jeff didn’t show lame tweaks/apps for a while, but here we are again. Come on, troubleshooting? Who needs a tweak to tell you that your idevice is rebooting? Who is that dumb or stupid for not knowing when your idevice is rebooting/respringing?

    • have your iphone or ipad continuously reboot due to springboard crash while you are sleeping?

        No; I haven’t seen or heard about that in all my years jaibroken. By the way, for that type of eventuality I use Crash Reporter which gives me a lot of information about the crash.

      I absolutely agree with you! It’s getting ridiculous now -_-

  • If it showed a little report with the message such as what tweak or app caused the crash then it would be totally practical.

    Jeff, give us an article about ios xbmc and all the cool things we can do with it =D
