LockSpring is a free jailbreak tweak that adds a respring button and toggle to your Lock screen. It’s an incredibly simple tweak, and chances are you already have the same functionality in another tweak installed on your iDevice. For that reason, most won’t see the value in adding a standalone tweak like LockSpring to their repertoire.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a singular tweak that performs a respring function only with no extra fluff, then LockSpring may be worth taking a look at.

Once LockSpring is installed, you’ll notice an on/off toggle on your Lock screen, along with an accompanying respring button adjacent to that toggle (when enabled). Tapping the respring button performs a respring and nothing more.

Sure, it’s not the most glamorous or exciting tweak, but I’m pretty convinced that someone will find a use for it. Is that someone you? If so, then head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where you can download LockSpring for free.

What do you think?

  • Mike Logan

    Why is this being headlined again this is such a shit tweak

    • jose castro

      dude it really isn’t, i had plenty of times where i could not get into my phone because the lockscreen was glitching hardcore. this is a great tweak.

      • LUFC_MOT

        WTF do you install that makes your lockscreen glitch !! If you will install loads of shit then expect nothing more. The fact remains that this simply isn’t needed, SBSettings is a prime example of why not.

      • jose castro

        i believe its forecast that does it every once in a while. but not all the time… and i don’t use sbsettings anymore. But i get where your going. but not all people have the same tweaks as you. every one has a different preferences into what tweaks/apps they want to use. this tweak might not work for you but it sure does help other people who want it…

      • Falk M.

        I’m telling you, people have no clue what mighty tool they have with Activator.
        SOOO many tweaks can be replaced by Activator (STOCK).

      • Well, PIRATE apps tend to do that. Just saying

      • jose castro

        no pirate apps for this guy… all paid

  • Kok Hean

    Gets a notification.
    Reaches into pocket to read it.
    Accidentally resprings.

  • The GUI is poorly done, gaudy and just doesn’t look good on the screen at all. It wasn’t even something the developer designed himself, took a toggle graphic from iOS and then blew up an aluminum volume slider and put a couple curved arrows on it. All the graphics are taken from within iOS and the simple curved arrows are done in Photoshop.

    Placement of the toggle switch is off, as well as the bottom itself, with a little more time and effort this tweak could be been very minimalistic and if it was centered properly or fit on the screen right it might have actually looked good. This is poor and you won’t see me downloading this.

    • Mathew Rice

      couldn’t agree more

  • LUFC_MOT

    Pointless, with a capital P. What kind of person would jailbreak and install this because they don’t want lots of “fluff” as you put it? I don’t know anybody who jailbreaks that doesn’t install SBSettings which as everyone knows, already has this option but regardless of that why would you want a respring icon permanently on your lockscreen, who even resprings through choice that often to even need access to a button from the lockscreen !!

  • it just looks so not apple

    • Ture.. but than again jailbreaking is so not Apple too..

      • Falk M.

        This so much.
        I feel dirty doing it 😛

        Joking aside, the day I can stay unjailbroken is going to be a GOOD day.
        Can’t stand how so many Cydia devs put literally almost no effort in mimicking the default appearance.
        I mean look at some of the default SBSettings themes…
        The standard theme is the most fugly POS theme I’ve ever seen and doesn’t resemble iOS, let alone Apple or any OS design (apart from some really odd choices) at all.

      • Well, some tweaks look good, like “alwaysclose” or “Deck” 🙂 but some are… Well, when you look, you kinda stuck between these : “OMG so ugly” and “Is that an Android?” 😉

      • Falk M.

        That’s why I said “many Cydia devs”…
        Guess there are just too many who’re in the spirit of “free from Apple’s rules…” and forget about the rules that just TOTALLY make sense like the HIG.
        Damn, if you’re into developing for a platform, at least do the effort of reading the HIG. PLEASE.

      • Dan

        you should a sbsetting theme called Retina++, it’s great, looks very Apple’ish

      • Falk M.

        Thanks for the tip, I already found a good one, but I’ll look into your tip. 🙂

        Just saying that a popular tweak like this shouldn’t still have that fugly a** theme, they should have kicked it LONG ago. :S
        (putting aside the fact they shouldn’t have released it ever :D)

  • M Last

    how many times per day we need to do respring?

    I didn’t like it,also ugly :)))

  • …could this be useful if you are stuck in a respring loop with a broken power button like i was just yesterday..the lockscreen came up for 2 seconds and the respring circle came again..i wonder if i could have just push that respring button at that 2 seconds and get out of it…

    • Mathew Rice

      if you are stuck in a respring loop, how would respringing via this tweak help…?

      • Falk M.

        This.
        Wouldn’t help you.

        Maybe try holding your volume up button on boot, it will activate safe mode and maybe then you’ll be able to remove the buggy tweak. 🙂

        Best of luck!

  • Guys please help

    I need tweak like this, but instead of respring button I want lock button. (Lock to password)
    For security reasons..
    Thanks for help 😉

    • Falk M.

      When you’re on your lockscreen you want to lock your device?
      WTF?
      Please explain, because obviously this cannot be what you mean…

      • Ok, sorry.
        I will try it again (hope better)
        You lock your device to lockscreen, but you can –> slide to unlock to homescreen, without typing password. Example; some girls want to steal you your iphone from your hands and you need password protect immediately.

        I need a tweak on the lockscreen, that will lock it down.

        And sorry, English language is not my mother tongue…

      • Falk M.

        Well, why not just activate passcode lock?
        Or is it like you normally don’t want to enter it?

        I guess your example is weak, but I see what you’re on about, because if a girl wants to steal your iPhone, by the time you realize that I doubt you have activated the screen, and precisely hit the button for code lock.

        Interesting idea though.

      • Activate passcode lock.. I am such a idiot… 😀
        Thanks
        And write me please if you find tweak, that can do that.It needn´t to be used just like a protection against girls (Also parents, girlfriends…pickpocket?)

      • Falk M.

        pickpocket thieves?
        I guess they won’t warn you, so you need your pass code lock constantly active.
        If you want a good tweak that will give you some extra security beyond the pass code lock: iGotYa
        I use it and feel much better 😀

  • Mathew Rice

    This tweak is a classic example of function over form, but, even function is questionable.
    At least its free :p

  • THIS TWEAK IS UGLY AND DUMB!

    • Falk M.

      I agree, but at least turn off your Caps Lock and at the very least give Jeff some props for doing the video and review at least. 🙂

  • Aric Bolf

    What is respring?
