    I’m sorry for off topic but do you know how to fix automatic redirects from Cydia to AppStore? It is very annoying, I don’t tap on any ads and it still keeps on redirecting me to some games. Googling didn’t help

    • amoory

      Try this

      • kenzie t

        I know this is a stupid question but is it available for iOS7? I found this tweak but it says only iOS 5 and 6. If it’s available, which repo should I add? Thanks beforehand 😉

        Can someone tell me how to fix all Zeppelin icon on statusbar showing black & white

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        I don’t think that can be fixed. I don’t think it’s even a bug it’s like that on purpose AFAIK…

      • Azat Dav

        Thanks, works now! I don’t mind seeing ads but not when they automatically open

      • Wood1030

    Hey guys,
    I know this has nothing to do with winterboard but dont know where else to post this.
    I’ve been looking for a data monitor for the jailbroken iPhone 5S and have found no information that the previous tweaks and apps are compatible.
    Does anyone have any info?

  • Alain Vasquez

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the red and yellow volume bars that you get when you have full volume in iPhone

    P.S. I bought my phone from U.K. And i know it only happens in European iPhones but i want to know how to get rid of thesr annoying bars which make the screen on every time I increase or decrease volume

    • samay s

      If i am not wrong, your phone must have been installed with this program called “Volume Amplify” it sort of extends the volume beyond the stock limit , in that case you can amplify it up to 200% more with those green yellow and red volume bars, you could do it by just going to cydia > packages > volume amplifier > modify > remove > confirm

      if it isn’t the case , then i am sorry :/

      • assassin

        Sorry, no tweak installed but still thank you for the help

  • Chris Gilmore

    Can any iDownloadBlog folks confirm that Winterboard DOES in fact drain your battery? I have an i5s and it’s killing my battery.

    • assassin

      I dont think winterboard has any effect on the battery
      Have you tried switching summerboard on or off that may help!

  • Antun
