Upcoming jailbreak tweak allows you to fold your Lock screen to unlock your iPhone

By , May 20, 2012

A few days ago, Russian freelance designer, Anton Kudin, created a new “fold to unlock” concept for the iPhone. Needless to say, his concept turned out to be a pretty big hit.

Unsurprisingly, given the history of the jailbreak community’s fast turnaround time, Kudin’s concept has been turned into a reality.

This afternoon I had the privilege to sit down and test out an unreleased version of Unfold, a new jailbreak tweak from German jailbreak developer Jonas Gessner. Unfold, as you might have guessed, is a usable implementation of the fold to unlock concept.

Want to see Unfold in action? Then step right inside…

Once installed, Unfold simply works. It doesn’t require any settings configuration, and it plays nice with iOS’ passcode security feature. Unfold is a solid implementation of an interesting concept, and it’s sure to make anyone unfamiliar with jailbreaking do a double take.

As stated, Unfold is still in development, but it’s slated to be released in the very near future for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

  • Nice

  • Awesome and yet very simple. Love it

  • Will this work with Winterboard and Intelliscreen X?

    • I don’t see why not, what has it even got to do with isx?
      I want to know if it’ll work with camera grabber.

      I would like to know as well. Does this only work on the stock Apple unlock screen? Or does it work with custom winterboard unlock screens as well(Weather Elements)?

  • Brilliant overall but I think developer should do something with invisible status bar.

  • i also wanna pay for it it look awesome !!

  • i HOPE iPad also supported

  • Needs the springboard pages to fold as well when swiping across

  • That awkward moment when shitty tweaks cost +3$ but great tweaks are free.

  • Really sweet, but the first thing came to mind is what about the camera button? It is one of my most used features,
    It would be really nice if you ‘fold up’ for the camera app!!

    • yes i aggree im only goning to use it if i can get quick acess to my camera :/

      • I hope to see something like folding the screen up for the camera, like you’d do on iOS 5.1, but with the folding effect, without the button of course.

    One word; beautiful. I love it.

  • Same here, camera grabber. 🙂

  • Max Katzmann

    That’s the kind of stuff I jailbreak for!!

  • I use LockSliderz, I wonder if this tweak will play nice with that tweak.

  • how where u able to get it?

  • Wow, this is so awsome 😀 make it compatible with the camera grabber, and I’m sold ! Haha 😉

  • This is awesome looking! I wish their was more “fun” tweaks like this.

  • looks awesome need to test it out later
    P.S jeff please don’t review upcoming jailbreak tweaks . your making us suffer lool

  • iUnlock also features unlock animations and it is not compatible with mathalarm. Can someone confirm whether this one is compatible with it?

  • Can you send us te file to install it? ^_^

  • Awesome tweak. Hope it’ll work with Lockinfo.

    • hoping it will work with lockinfo as well

  • Awesome

  • My first thought was will it work with camera grabber but it was quickly followed by my second thought of who cares about camera grabber, 5.1.1 jb will be released “in a matter of days” :o)

  • Will this work with stride? Looks amazing 😀

  • Hope it will be out in time for 5.1.1 untether!

  • To many quetions but no Answer. The Developers should also come to the IDB to Answer all the quetions, no?

  • Aric Bolf

    Impressive!

  • Sadly, the camera function is not there

  • I hope this will work.. or eventually work with the camera always being on.. (aka compatible with sprintomize) Awesome tweak idea!

  • I will buy it for a buck.

  • great tweak i love it

  • would love to use it

  • i keep refreshing my cydia xD

  • I dont like edges hence the Unfold …smooth transition is cooler

  • think this look better for ipad

  • I cant wait til the new jailbreak so I can get this tweak on my iphone!!!

  • i can’t wait to have it:)

  • does it work with stride???

  • i want it *w*

  • DAT tweak

  • is there a release date?

  • Anonymous

    this is cool! can’t wait!

  • I can’t find it in Cydia store.

  • Laszlo Gaspar

    this is very cool, i could easily see apple stealing the idea and implementing in into something like IOS 6.

    I want it.

  • Installed it from cydia but has two major problems:

    One, wich renders it almost unusable is that when unlocked it jumps to spotlight and not to homescreen.

    The second one is that even with the unlock sound set to off in settings it will play the unlock sound when unlocked…

  • WHEN?=(

  • This works great with IF FOUND app.
