    I hate the way Apple diminished gestures that call forth the app switcher, they make us rely so much on the home button, and MultitaskingGestures should be renamed, I agree with Sebastien on this.

    Here’s a little lesson of the boot chain for iOS.


    Now, if we look at an ipsw or something, an iTunes restore will re-flash LLB and above on restore. The bootROM is a ROM (Read-Only Memory), so apple cannot reflash it and fix an exploit.

    The BootROM is a version of iBoot that cannot be updated

    So, limera1n is a bug found in the BootROM. What iH8sn0w found is an iBoot exploit. It is a bug that was created in a new version iBoot then what was on the BootROM, therefore, iBoot WILL BE UPDATED, even with an OTA update. So iH8sn0w will NEVER release this unless something crazy happens. He will keep this so he can jailbreak newer releases and search for bugs from a different perspective.

    So, this iBoot exploit is important, but its now a jb for life, its a better way to search for bugs in iOS. Thus, makes the development on jailbreaks easier

    I even use Virtual Home instead of the power button to turn my devices display off.

    In an attempt to better explain f.lux it changes the temperature of your display. There’s no dimming involved, it simply makes the display less blue. Think of it as white balance for your display. Normally the display sits around 6500k which is good for during the day but at night that’s too intense. Basically it’s the difference between lighting a room with flourescent lights and incandescent lights but for your display. It can take a bit of getting used to at first but after a while you won’t even notice. And if you do find the screen looks orange you can change the settings to adjust it. A personal tip I would suggest if it’s hard to get used to is set the screen to as orange as you can and continue using your device for about 10 minutes or so, then start changing the setting up until it looks white again. I hope this helps explain it, it’s a tweak I think everyone should at least try out as it can be incredibly beneficial for your eyes and brain.

    Jeff, this is an older tweak but is awesome. You should review Wake With Weather.

    You should suggest to Surenix that he should design glyphs for jellylock7
