Auxo iPad

Folks, it’s almost here. Yes, Auxo is coming to the iPad next month. As you know, Auxo is one of my own personal favorite jailbreak tweaks, and for good reason. It completely re-imagines the iOS app switcher, giving users the ability to see full screen previews of running apps.

While I always thought Auxo looked great on the iPhone 5’s larger screen, I’d imagine it will look even better on the iPad. The screenshot above pretty much says as much.

We don’t know the exact day that Auxo for iPad will be released, but it’s fairly safe to say that it will be out sometime in May. Of course, I will have a full in-depth preview of the tweak as it nears release. Stay tuned. And in the mean time, check out our original review of Auxo for iPhone.

    Finally πŸ˜€ !!

  • tim

    I’ve been waiting for this since ‘early 2013’. good to hear its just around the corner! hopefully it won’t be too much :s

    • Hehe
      I too was waiting since “Early 2013”
      As it was mentioned in Auxo for iPhone’s desciption

  • “I always though” …thought, I think you mean.

  • Clinsmman Herbete

    I’ve been waiting for this since ‘early 2013’ [2]

  • Yay! Finally getting some iPad love. πŸ™‚

  • Cool, but Id rather have Quasar come back for iOS6 more than any other ipad tweak

  • iDara09

    I can see excitement, here. πŸ˜‰

  • Ah i remembers letterpress i cheated using flex where i can put all words

  • I heard its a separate tweak and you will have to pay for it

    • weztimonial

      Wonder how much its gonna go for. Would be great if it is just an update, so we can use it on both iphone and ipad

      • It would most likely be $1.99 and Sentry had to release a separate tweak because he said he had to rewrite the whole thing for the iPad. Not sure about now..

      • Will pay even if this iPad tweak cost $9.99 like Quasar

  • iphone4sgamer

    Finally πŸ˜€ !! , Great tweak to complete my jailbroken iPad

  • pauleebe

    I’m glad they waited. Initial iPhone versions were pretty buggy .. but I love this tweak!

  • so is this going to be free for current Auxo iPhone users?

    • weztimonial

      I hope it is.

    • Damian W

      Considering how much work they put in this tweak, it is more likely to be sold as a separate version.

  • iOS 6.1.3 downgrade for ipod touch 4g??

    • Sir.Rhommi

      No Downgrade Or Jailbreak For 6.1.3 & They Won’t Be Making One. Sorry

    • weztimonial

      wait for the next major update

    • Sn0wbreeze actually made a 6.1.3 jailbreak but you need a “old-boot” i think thats wat its called…

    • Florian Lerch

      You need your shsh blobs saved.
      If you don’t have them it’s not possible.

      • I have them stitched into my 6.1 ipsw….but for some reason it hasn’t been working

  • Will this arrive as an update to Auxo? If not, will those who bought it for the iPhone have a discount, or even possibly receiving it for free?

    • tim

      The dev has said that they are two different tweaks with two entirely different code bases. So they’ll be separate packages, and likely not a free update. Perhaps owners of iPhone auxo will have a discount though

      • iDon’tWantToShareMyDetails

        Yeah… completely different. I’ve never seen this look before.

      • Kurt

        This is one of the reasons why people don’t pay for tweaks.

      • Pay for tweaks are a way to appreciate the time and efforts they put in. Think of it as Donation!

      • Kurt

        Using a tweak is the best way to appreciate the time and effort they put in πŸ˜‰

      • So you support pirating, rather than the author’s amazing work to do this in the first place for people? Well that’s just low…

      • Kurt

        There are practices that push people towards pirating. Keyword, towards. If it gets to the threshold/tipping point the person will pirate. So, my reasoning for writing, was to point out the problem with devs. If they avoid bad practices there will be less pirating. Thus, more money for them. So, I was helping to fix the problem. Absolutely, not “low”.

  • Did they fix the crashing on the iPhone version of Auxo?

    • Sentry

      A while back, yup. πŸ™‚

      • iphone4sgamer

        When I hit the name of the app at the bottom of auxo, It resprings springboard, Any details to why ?

      • From which repo?

      • iphone4sgamer

        their beta repo (Auxo 1.4.1-23)

      • LoL you are using Beta of course! Beta are not full stable version!

      • iphone4sgamer

        No shit, but they’ve been saying how the particular crashing on the iPhone version was corrected.

  • hessopoetic

    Ugh they keep teasing us with this! They should’ve released screenshots a week before release, not weeks or even a month. I can’t wait though, been waiting too long

    • Sentry

      Sorry, we just got past a pivotal development step and couldn’t contain ourselves, had to share!

  • Yes! OH GAWD YES!!! I don’t know why I’m so turned on right now, but this post has to be the greatest news posted, TODAY!

    • Sentry

      Good to hear!

      • If I had to pick just ONE tweak for my iPhone to keep and nothing else, it would be Auxo πŸ™‚

    • J_W97

      Glad your as excited as we are πŸ™‚

  • Darek Slaby

    I’ve become so accustomed to just swiping my screen up (using zephyr) to reveal the multitasking panel and then just swiping down on an app to close it (a la Auxo) that every time I use my iPad and try to switch between apps or close one it ends up feeling so cumbersome and tedious. I’d go as far to say that I’d prefer my iPhone without the home button…using Auxo and Zephyr has spoiled me to the point where using the home button or using the “tap and hold to jiggle” method to close apps seems very outdated and not user friendly. Really hope Apple could make an iPhone that gets rid of the home button and just expands the screen while keeping the one-handed operation still in tact.

    • Klikkit

      I felt the same but my lock button on my 7 month old iPhone 5 only responds 20% of the time (same problem I had with my 3GS) so I have enabled the home button to lock the device on triple-tap.

      Main reason I preferred using Zephyr and Auxo was because I hated pressing the physical button out of fear I’d wear it down, suppose I have no choice now anyway.

  • Even if this is a separate tweak I will buy it. It’s so worth it I’ve been waiting for 4 months now like everybody else can’t wait! πŸ˜€

    • Same, I will pay that extra bux to support.

  • Mustang5Oh

    Ahhh I can’t wait for this on my iPad mini!!!

  • Crowned_59

    OMG finally, my mini shall be complete!

  • Free with my iPhone Auxo purchase, or do I have to buy again?

    • They did mention on their twitter that it will be a separate package hence need to pay again.I now hoping for a discount

      • I’m out if have to pay it again, seriously

      • Paying tweak, any tweak, even if there is a monthly subscription for premium I will do it.

  • hell yeah! #CantWait !


  • I just read the heading of the article and screamed out “YES”

  • I hope it gives some discount to the loyal customers,since free is totally impossible as it will be a separate package

  • I hope it work in landscape orientation, i use ipad 98% of time like this

  • christodouluke

    Correction for the first paragraph: “It (partially) re-imagines the iOS app switcher, giving users the ability to see (small) previews of running apps.”

  • Klikkit

    Angers me that the Dev has only responded to compliments and not addressed the concerns/issues his/her current customers are having.
    This is why I refuse to pay for Jailbreak Tweaks. I have an Β£800-odd phone, I don’t intend to pay for tweaks that cause inoperability on it.

  • Francesco Sgaramella

    i have it running on my ipad already….

    • lol, you either forced install or using beta which don’t count

  • I have Auxo on my iPhone 5 but I’m noticing I use the app switcher a lot more on my iPad. The stock app switcher sucks ever since I’ve started using Auxo

  • Any updates on what concerns Quasar for ios 6?

  • screamingonasnail

    From when may is early 2013?

  • iViperzLTD

    It’s a shame it costs more to own a bigger (and better IMO) jailbreak toy πŸ™

  • screamingonasnail

    I don’t understand from when may it’s early 2013?!

  • i waited so long… it even isnt EARLY 2013 any more! if they do a seperate version for ipad and NOT update the iphone version to work with the ipad, I WONT BUY THAT SHIT!

  • iPaulius

    still waiting…. and still waiting…

  • Vidhu Singhal

    Jeff – Do you realize this is equally shameful for you too!
