LockBar Settings Lite adds hidden toggles to your Lock screen

It’s tough sometimes to get excited about a jailbreak tweak that performs the exact same function as several others before it. Today’s tweak, for example, adds system toggles to your Lock screen. I can’t even count how many others there are that do this.

But that doesn’t mean you should ignore LockBar Settings Lite all together. In fact, it’s actually a pretty handy little utility. You see, its toggles stay hidden on your Lock screen until you swipe up, or double tap, on the ‘slide to unlock’ bar to reveal them…

As you’d expect, LockBar Settings Lite has a sizable options menu in the Settings app. Here you can set its activation method—swipe or double tap—and program its toggles. You can have up to 4 of them, and enable them with either a single or double tap.

Unfortunately, there aren’t a whole lot of toggles to choose from. I counted six, including Airplane, Bluetooth, Flashlight, Location, Respring and Wi-Fi. It’s a decent start, but here’s hoping the developer plans to add others, like DoNotDisturb and AutoLock.

Otherwise, though, it’s a solid tweak. The sliding animation is smooth, the icons look sharp, and it’s handy that they’re located below the Lockbar where your thumb rests. And I know there are dozens of tweaks out there that already do this, but it’s worth checking out.

If you’re interested, you can find LockBar Settings Lite in Cydia, in the ModMyi repo, for free.

  • I think this deserves a video

    • Kurt

      • considering the more pointless tweaks Jeff’s done, i thought this was video worthy, after i downloaded it i guess not, but it has a lot of potential.

  • Justine Tobi Dayao

    Cody has a great theme installed on his phone. ~.~

  • Amit Nyamtabad

    Whats that lockscreen theme that you have?

  • Man, what is this theme we keep seeing? It looks nice!

  • Everyones asking kinda im going to ask again cody stop being arrogant and tell us the name of the lockscreen theme?

  • RarestName

    I’ll stick LockScreenToggles that I got today. Works with JellyLock.

    • Kurt

      jellylock is the best

      • We all know you only like jellylock as it brings a feature from Android (which judging from your previous comments you like a lot) to iOS…

      • Kurt

        “…you only like jellylock” that would mean i’m a fanboy. (Stupid comment as I never owned an Android device) That’s for teenagers and like minded folk. I like it cause its elegant and I can pick what apps I like. Slide to unlock is outdated. Judging from your comments you would like to live in 2007 forever

      • Farbod

        Never reply to Kurt… You’ll only get insulted :(

  • AAditya Āhūjā

    I liked d theme plz tell me the name

  • Farbod

    EVERYONE, that theme is iMiUi, it is not only a LS theme but a full theme.
    Just google it. It has a website.

  • Can’t wait till this (tiny!) tweak gets a few more toggles like 3G, brightness, etc, then I can get rid of ncsettings!

  • Oh my God. A new tweak for toggles. Thats what i call innovation

  • this tweak kills the activator actions on the statusbar like axis do!

  • genXhippie

    Question: Which tweak allows one to stretch/thin out the the lock screen slider, as in the photo above?
