As most of you know, LiveClock has been around the jailbreak scene for quite some time. The tweak replaces the Clock app’s icon with an animated version that reflects the current time.

But over the years, LiveClock has gotten lost in the couch cushions of Cydia. Ignored by its developer, the package had not seen an update since 2010. Until yesterday, that is…

Well-known jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich released an update to LiveClock last night, finally bringing iOS 5 support to the forgotten tweak. The new version also includes a handful of WinterBoard themes, for those that have the app.

LiveClock 0.6 works just like you’d expect from a veteran like Petrich. It downloads quickly, works right away, and since I installed it early this morning, I haven’t noticed any stability problems. It feels native β€” as it probably should be.

If you’d like to try out the tweak, you’ll need to make sure you have added Ryan Petrich’s repo. To do that, open up Cydia, then tap Manage > Sources > Edit > Add and type the following: Then just search for LiveClock.

And don’t worry, it’s still free.

What do you think of the new LiveClock?

  • Great that he’s finally updated it but seeing as ios6 is out in another month or so… It’s a bit pointless in my view to have updated it now. Still good that it is. I’ve missed this tweak

    • it will maybe take a long time for the iOS 6 jailbreak to be created and released so i think a lot of people will stay on iOS 5 πŸ™‚

    • In another Month? You mean August? And even if it would be released then, how can YOU know whether it will be broken or not? Are you a Developer? I guess you aren’t, please just shut the fuck up if you have no clue about anything.

  • I’ve never used this tweak before. How is the battery usage?

    • D4vid

      Just like normal…

  • video ?

  • TinTonB

    Yes, loved this tweak on iOS 4.3.3 πŸ˜€

  • Downloaded to my iPad, then remembered the iPad doesn’t have a Clock app.

    • M_AlO

      Almost downloaded to my iPad, then remembered the iPad doesn’t have a clock app..

      • downloaded to my ipad and then remembered that the ipad has clock app because of Belfry tweak. :p

  • clockify is the best…

  • Retina?

  • whats the theme name in the above image?

  • I am guessing it is similar in look to Clockify

    • Kok Hean

      Clockify is the one similar to LiveClock, this tweak had been released for quite a long time.

      • either way…clockify is more sophisticated.

  • For those who ask for video and such things. Why not wipe the milk from your mouth and try to google once in a lifetime? As stated in the first of the article ”
    LiveClock has been around the jailbreak scene for quite some time “. Come on and get a life!

  • Clockify is better and it has “eyecon Support” it means that aye on developer made a custom icon for clockify… Just saying

  • They need to update it again so it could work with ayecone theme and yes ayecone the best theme so far .

  • very kool tweak

  • I D

    I loved this on 4.3.3. I tried to use it now on iOS 5 but as soon as it finished downloading and cydia prompted me to respring the phone never came out of safe mode. I tried restarting 5 or 6 times but to no avail. I’m guessing it’s clashing with the Jaku theme.

  • does it work with ayecon?

  • How is the battery consumption???

  • D4vid

    Very nice, but if you have it in a folder like me, the small ‘preview icon’ isn’t showing the good time, but still the normal app icon.

  • Thank you so much for this article! I just entered the scene this past week, and I cant express how much this site helps! Most of all the tweaks I’ve gotten was because of this site. I never knew so much was available on the iOS. I’ve sunk at least $50 into tweaks. I have people telling me how crazy it is when I can just get it all pirated. I’m sorry, but if I can get the functionality and the look and feel that I’ve always wanted I am willing to pay. Just a random tangent I just went on. I’m more than sure that there are others out there who feel the same!
