Velox Weather and Notes

Good news folks, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is here. Velox — the highly anticipated jailbreak tweak that allows you to interact with your Home screen icons to access notifications, quick functions, and more — is now available on Cydia for download.

Last month, we brought you a sneak preview of Velox. And with more than 100,000 views, it seems like many of you agree with us on how useful this tweak could be, and are looking forward to trying it out. Well today, we’re happy to report that you finally can…

You can find Velox in the BigBoss repo, for $1.99.

  • does not seem work with infindock.

  • electro

    which remote presentation software using jeff?

  • Nice app. Currently has a bug if you try to slide open cydia; and run carmode; you’ll get a spinning cursor; I’m sure they’ll fix it.

  • It’s good. But needs theming the background etc is a bit meh.other things
    1. A swipe gesture to reclose the folder or only home button?
    2. I use a 3rd part calendar but it doesn’t show the notifications (although they show in NC)

  • the compose new message freezes every time i try to add a recipient, this happening to anyone else? I do have biteSMS but shit who doesn’t?

  • 3. Mail shows no new notifications even with new mail
    4. Twitter won’t let me sign in even though I’m already signed in with the twitter app

  • Crashes when opening Cydia folder. Also, for the Facebook app it would be nice if Velox opens the mobile version instead of the desktop version of the website.

    great tweak & video

  • seyss

    do you drool when talking jeff? 🙂

  • People need to calm down… Velox has or had a few bugs to fix… Within a few days the devs will add more, provide bug fixes! Thus far it’s a great app! If you want your Facebook web app to open.. Just create Facebook shortcut, then swipe up or down and it will open faster than the Facebook app! Mail app still needs a fix but soon to come! It’s worth the money and effort.

  • Enes Karagic

    Apple should hire this guy.

  • Isa Altintas

    I can’t find it in cydia any help please 🙁

  • any giveaway 😀 😀 😀 ???

  • Twitter and Facebook stopped loading and will no longer let me log in after swiping. 🙁 Please fix?

  • Thi Han

    When’s badger coming out?

  • SweKiwi

    Thumbs up if you were hyped about this and then found out it was.. meh.

    • 4p0c4lyps3

      My sentiment exactly…

      • Uninstalled it after a hour, just dont see the point of it

  • tariq haidari

    getting iPhone today. JUST FOR THAT TWEAK!

  • Gorgonphone

    Hmmm did they do any testing at all on this tweak ?

  • its not working at 100% maybe 45% not getting all the features shown above on “no new notifications”

  • Any ways to disable the folder enhancer view for velox?

  • Drain as hell my battery 🙁

  • 4p0c4lyps3

    Tweak desperately needs a way to close window without the use of the home button. I try to use the home button as little as possible. I close everything via zephyr. So this aspect of it kinda ruins it for me.

    • 4p0c4lyps3

      I’m a firm believer tht the home button is an antiquated concept, Apple.

    • You can also tap anywhere on the screen that the dropdown window doesn’t touch, except for the app itself and the status bar.

      • 4p0c4lyps3

        Hmm, first thing I tried. Didn’t wrk.

      • That’s weird. Works on mine. I’m using an iPhone 4 in case that matters.

      • 4p0c4lyps3

        I’m on iPhone 5. Must not like one of my other tweaks. Iconoclasm, I’m thinking?

    • Dave Elg

      You are probably also using folder enhancer. They just released a FE update that takes care of this.

      • 4p0c4lyps3

        Still no good after update.

  • Elegant concept; working nice for me now; but many apps don’t yet seem supported to show notifications

  • cortech

    How does this work with AppLocker?

  • what if you pull to clear notifications by accident? can you bring the notifications back to notification center? like emails for example

  • Gorgonphone

    This is clearly beta

  • Crash everytime it opens the QR window

  • kevon

    How come my Camera is not working with this. Whenever i took a photo there is nothing but blank screen….

  • akhyar

    just downloaded it, tested for few moments and decided to uninstall it for the moment, because couldn’t bear the fact that it activates the location service all the time and drained my battery down within just few minutes.

    Anybody experience the same thing, or somebody could shed some lights of anything I missed out on the settings? It’s a fantastic tweak though it might still in it’s infancy state.. 🙁


      i found that too, velox activates the springboard location service(i found the warning when i open the google maps folder the first time), so i close those special folders that need locations, and reinstall the tweak. it works fine now,

  • It’s a very nice tweak. Don’t like the fact you can’t swipe the notifications box to close it and have to use the home button. Also, the quick message compose, can’t type a name in. Must use the contacts list. Very awkward. And needs to be compatible with Enhanced Folder please. Overall, very nice.

  • Nuah Okesola

    very, very good tweak. best in a while to be honest. moving forward, just a suggestion for future updates, for, swipe down to make new notes, swipe up to view current notes. for contacts, swipe down to make new contact, swipe up to view current contacts? swipe up to reveal phonepad, swipe down to look at recents? basically, swiping down for an action and swipe up to view the app, like safari, instead of having a setting of one or the other, like either app or make an action. just a suggestion, like this tweak a lot though.

  • After Installing, has anyone else experienced: 1) the weather drop down showing incorrect temperature (using yahoo weather and not stock app); 2) ambient light sensor/ proximity sensor not working properly. The lighting on my phone will randomly increase/decrease the maximum and my screen doesn’t shutoff during phone calls. Only other recent tweak I’ve installed is lockscreentoggles.

  • bloodshed

    there’s a problem when i compose a new message using velox (swiping up/down i try to add recipients, an error message pops up “this address is neither compatible with iMessage nor with SMS”!!..and my iphone becomes unresponsive, i need to go to the lock screen so i can dismiss that..almost for every contact i have!..any ideas?
    and one more thing, the sporadic unresponsiveness of the home-screen after exiting folder notifications with velox is caused by DashboardX, removing it fixed that.

  • Bahaa Naser

    need a fix for the location service on the springboard….it turns on when i swiped the map and don’t turn off….i tried to uninstall it but location service still on

    • baustoff

      when i swipe for maps folder and it doesn’t matter if google maps or apple maps, the location service just don’t work, even if i turn location services on before i swipe for maps folder, i just see my country and not my current position with the blue spot and i just don’t know why 🙁
      …but when i open google maps or apple maps, i see immediatly my position.

  • Hadar

    when will the Xsellize version be out?

  • I cant make i work with the clock app, as shown in the other article. anyone?

  • 4p0c4lyps3

    Velox is in a state of semi-fail rite now. Cool, but weak.

  • cortech

    So no one else uses AppLocker?? I have a feeling these two won’t play nice…unless velox overrides it..but I was hoping someone else may know if they are compatible?

  • luggy on iphone 4 :(( maybe you can help? i bought it and i have only auxo – bought it too

  • Works GREAT !!!!!!! NO LAG or nothing running; iPhone 5 — 6.1.2

  • placa5150

    Not playing nice with BiteSMS

  • how do you open the settings app if tapping it makes the tray appear?

  • Mess!

    $ 1.99 for nothing issued, the tweak does not work (ip5)!!

    Where can I get my money back? I’m so Erhlich and always buy me all the apps and tweaks, if this continues I will also use cracked sources …

  • Can’t find it!!! HELP!!!!!!

  • Zander

    Anybody else encountered the problem where, when going to unlock the iPhone (5, 6.1.2), the phone just freezes? Slide to unlock doesn’t work and nor does intelliscreenX?

    Only holding home and power can it work again…

  • This is great, but I have found one big limitation. It does not appear to work with app icons in folders. Is this correct, or is there something I don’t understand?

  • iGor

    Facebooks not working, asking m to login every time, and then failed loading…

  • Maarten

    When comes it out for IOS 5?

  • Sir Chrome

    Velox is a very ingenious tweak that provides the user with possible iOS 7 capabilities. However, this tweak does contain bugs. Hopefully this tweak would be fixed in the distance future
