Don’t you just hate it when you miss an important call because you forgot to turn your iPhone’s mute switch off? Or what about that one annoying person that always calls at 3 in the morning? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could forever silence their calls?

With RingerX VIP, all of these scenarios feature easy solutions.

This is a jailbreak tweak for those who require fine grained control over how various contacts are treated whenever they call you or message you…

RingerX VIP allows you to customize each individual contact with specific ringtone and vibrate settings for both SMS messages and phone calls. Options like always silent, ignore mute, custom volumes, and always vibrate permeate the tweak’s settings. There’s even an option to customize the ringtone of a contact when you’ve set it to ignore the mute switch.

To make things easy, there’s a built in feature that allows you to toggle RingerX VIP off on an individual basis, along with a full fledged global kill switch in the Settings app.

For those of you who are interested in temporary mute options, those too can be enabled using a simple Activator action. The custom mute can range anywhere from 5 minutes to 23 hours and 55 minutes. The temporary mute is perfect for meetings, or movies; I think 23 hours is long enough even for a rerun of Titanic don’t you think?

To top everything off, the developer went above and beyond to create some comprehensive documentation for the tweak; not since CallBar (and yes RingerX VIP works with CallBar) have we seen such in-depth help guides.

RingerX VIP will be available in Cydia’s BigBoss repo in just a few days for $1.99. In the meantime, why not share some of the ways this tweak would be beneficial to you?

  • Jeff, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THAT DISGUSTING ICON IN YOUR STATUS BAR!!! 😛

    • Hahaha, I keep forgetting to remove it…

        By the way, is it just me, or your font looks smaller?

  • Hmm, Jeff. This is where I have to disagree with you. I think Filippo put a very long list of documentation in with Springtomize 2.

    I do think that RingerX VIP is a great tweak. I’m very happy to have been one of the lucky beta testers who helped make sure things were stable and I have to say that the features are absolutely worth the price that he will be asking for it. They are extensive, deep, and overall satisfying.

    Another great tweak by @_Yllier_!

    • True, how could I forget that. Okay, well top 3 then!

  • OT: Jeff can you make a video about the latest release of copic? and how it works on ios 5 esp. notification center.

  • My wife is gonna love this, now she can finally reach me in meetings etc.!

  • Hi Jeff, loving your blog, this is my 1st post though, I do have a question: how did you get rid of the adds in cydia? Your bigboss seems so pretty and adfree. 🙂 Mind sharing that?
    Thanks and btw, nice tweak!

  • Looks very call.

    Question, does Callbar still ignore custom ringtones?

  • I’m hoping I can disable ringtones playing through my headphones when they are plugged in and my phone’s on silent. I like to wear ’em around my neck and it’s a hassle to turn the ringer down or have to tak ’em off in class. If anyone know ls a dix for this I’d be interested as I don’t think this would be a feature of this app.

  • That’s actually awesome.

  • Anonymous

    This tweak looks AWESOME.

  • What we need is Profiles! How I would love to have a ‘Work’, ‘School’, and ‘Home’ profiles for my iPhone.

    Does anyone know if there are any apps on Cydia that lets you set profiles?

  • DRE

    hey Jeff, is that the default Font?

  • Fred Jones

    Cant find this in Cydia

  • Fred Jones

    I can’t find this in Cydia. Where can I get it? Is there a different Repo?

  • Jimmy Wade

    I am very much looking forward to RingerX VIP. Thx.

  • I cannot figure out how to set custom rigtones or textones. The article says when mute is turned off. This only allows for custom volume. The custom tone I have set in the contact does not get applied if Ringerx is turned on. If I toggle Ringerx off, the custom tone works. Everywhere I read about this tweak, the comment is made that you can assign custom ringtones and texttones. I cannot get it to work. Please help
