‘Beacon’ shows animated Apple logo after each respring

By , Apr 5, 2013

Beacon 03

Do you really enjoy the animated Apple logo that appears on your phone the first time it is restored? Would you like to see that animated logo every time you reboot or respring your iPhone? If so, then check out Beacon.

Beacon is a new jailbreak tweak that forces the animated Apple logo to appear each time your respring or reboot your device. That animation is accompanied by a transition animation when switching to your Lock screen. With all of this said, you’d have to really, and I mean really, love that animation in order to be willing to cough up $0.99 for the privilege.

Beacon 02

As stated, you can choose from several different transition animations for the logo to Lock screen transition. Unfortunately, resprings aren’t all that eloquent in the first place on a jailbroken iPhone, and this tweak doesn’t really help in that area.

Keep in mind that if you’re interested in animated boot logos, there’s a whole lot of logos available free on charge on Cydia. Again, you can find Beacon for $0.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

      “Money from nothing”
      If it was truly from nothing, why didn’t anyone else create it before me? I came up with the idea for the tweak, and I spent the time to develop, deploy, and support it. I’m barely 15 years old and create tweaks to better both iOS and my future. If my work is worth less than your daily cup of coffee, then shame on me for charging a few pretty pennies. If you think that’s too much, then you should simply sell your iPhone, but don’t sit there and ridicule me. I spend more time and have more passion for my work than ~90% of other people do, and I won’t hesitate to defend it.

    Is there a respiratory that has Beacon posted as a crack version of Beacon? or is the .99 cent version our only option?

        Dude, the reason I come here instead of modmyi is because it’s pretty much open comments. There is freedom to talk about whatever. That’s a huge plus about this site.
