‘BetterPowerDown’ adds iOS 7.1 power-down slider to iOS 7.0

By , Apr 20, 2014

BetterPowerDown 02

BetterPowerDown is a brand-new jailbreak tweak that allows you to add additional power-off options to iOS 7.0.x. The tweak, which is available for download on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $0.99, allows you to add the iOS 7.1 and iOS 6.x power-down sliders to your device.

We’ve taken BetterPowerDown for a spin on video. Check out our review after the break.

With iOS 7.1, Apple switched up the style of its interface a bit and incorporated circle-styled slider knobs. BetterPowerDown allows jailbroken iOS 7.0.x users to experience the new style of knob without upgrading and thus losing the precious jailbreak.

If you’re feeling a bit nostalgic, users have the option of integrating the iOS 6.x power-down sliders as well. Each setting can be adjusted in BetterPowerDown’s preferences with no respring necessary.

As an added bonus, BetterPowerDown incorporates Hashbang Productions’ RePower tweak. That tweak, which we reviewed a while back, allows you to add slide to respring, and slide to reboot sliders to the power-down screen. Users wishing to enable RePower can do so via a toggle from BetterPowerDown’s preference panel.

I’ve used BetterPowerDown and I recommend that you try it. It’s a solid way to add iOS 7.1 slider knobs along with additional power-down options to your jailbroken iPhone. If you decide to try it, let me know what you think about it down below in the comments.

    Finally. Now everything I want is a virus scanner for my iPad ;)

    • MHCsk

      Virus what?

      • Infinite Production

        Scan for things like unflod

    • CS

      You won’t need one if you didn’t pirate stuff. I’ve been jail breaking since day one, never had any security problems. Just don’t be stupid and you’ll be ok

  • http://sciencedem.blogspot.com editor

    Is there a way to give it an activator action?

    • Zeyad Kambouris

      Same Question here also, It would be so nice if so

  • Prathik Nair

    Are you going to stop the scoring system you started on a few other videos?

  • MrDDify

    Would be perfect if it worked with Powerdown Pro

  • David Gitman

    nice

  • jack

    damn. nice

  • Sepo

    You need to review Actif. Seriously. This tweak has crazy potential.

    • Veronica

      What’s the source for the tweak?

      • Sepo

        Big Boss

    • Yash Gorana

      Holy sweet mother of Jesus, this activator is amazing.

  • Al

    I’d prefer having the tweak without the setting preference.

    And just give the user iOS 7.1 power-down slider, respring slider & reboot slider.

    • Sans

      You can hide the settings pref if you have Springtomize.

      • Lance Baker

        Do you mean Cloaky?

  • Eni

    do anyone knows what kind of profile is this? do i leave or remove it?

    • Eni

      ..

    • YoloSwagDaddyMaster

      Maybe it’s an app from the web that you downloaded, like GBA4ios or NDS4iOS

      • Infinite Production

        Well the GBA4iOS profile would be called GBA4iOS.
        Try applying the same logic to this problem

      • Eni

        no it’s not gba4ios

    • Sachmach29

      I believe that’s from Tongbu.

      • Eni

        i remove it anyway

  • Luis Martinez

    Is anyone having an issue with RePower? It seems my “Slide to Reboot” only powers it down. Doesn’t exactly boot back up like it should.

    • Chliii

      Yup

  • Jonathan

    I see this. Why?

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/PrsnSinghHD Prasoon Singh

      Did you try respringing your device?

      • Jonathan

        I had to remove the RePower tweak. :) Thank you though.

      • WaterTrooper

        Thanks, I had the same problem. I uninstalled them both, until I found this.

      • Jonathan

        Glad it worked. :)

    • Cody2185

      uninstall “Repower”, the repower mode in “Betterpowerdown” adds those sliders through the tweak itself. Essentially “Betterpowerdown” is repower…… but better……

      • Jonathan

        Ohh I see! Thank you! =D

    • Waleed

      Can you provide me the source for cracked “betterpowerDown” ?

      • Ismail ‘marco’ Azeem

        do you realize you’re trying to pirate a tweak? and do you realize that there is a harmful malware going around infecting jailbroken iphones and it comes from mostly pirated tweaks! also tell me how you got $399-599 (depending on the iphone you have) and not have $.99 to spend on a tweak??

      • Waleed

        HAHA, i know that bro, by the way i use pirated tweaks from trusted sources. I’ve already installed this tweak now by sinfuliphone :)
        I don’t use these which might be modified tl harm the iPhone somehow !

      • Jonathan

        Dude, you do realize piracy is wrong. You are STEALING! Who cares if it’s from a trusted piracy repo. You are still stealing from developers! I don’t have a single pirated tweak/app on my device. I bought every one of them.
        “Yeah but it’s just one…”
        Yeah but they worked hours/weeks on it for you to enjoy! They earned every penny! Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way. I posted a paid theme and they were mostly piracy downloads. Let’s just say because of that, I lost $2000. It’s probably around $2500 by now.
        After I realized that, I deleted every single pirated tweak I have and bought the real version, not to mention I removed all piracy repos.
        I hope you do the same. If you don’t have any money, like seriously none, I’d suggest you email the devs and ask for it to be gifted. It’s the better thing to do and it’s legal.

      • Framboogle

        What is the name of your theme?

      • Jonathan

        Sleek7 Premium, Soft7, Dark7, and soon another theme. (@firebirdflame1 on Twitter if you want to find out the next one)

      • iamataff

        You’re Welcome

      • Jonathan

        Piracy hoster makes illegal copy of legal. Then theft downloads pirated version making it theft.

      • iamataff

        Step 1. Read above.
        Step 2. If still not understand then goto Step 1.

        You’re Welcome

      • Jonathan

        Stuff I know about you:
        1. You’re a crook who couldn’t care less about piracy.
        2. You support the devs and respect them.
        3. Number 2 was total sarcasm.

        Let’s just say you deserve the unflod virus.

      • iamataff

        1. You don’t know me.
        2. You’re correct, I couldn’t care less about piracy.
        3. I did not say piracy was right.
        4. I like sarcasm.
        5. Read above again.

        You’re Welcome :)

      • Jonathan

        1. Duh, no. But I know this little about you.
        2. Not caring about piracy means you don’t care about other people’s lives. You don’t know, for some people this may be the only way they make profit. They have to put food on the table.

        Respect the devs and give them what they deserve and instead of ripping them off.

      • iamataff

        Oh Jonathan go away now. You bore me.

      • Jonathan

        Not going away.

      • iamataff

        I ll make you go away by not replying.
        Peace

      • Jonathan

        Knew that would happen.

        But,I shall say this, God bless you.

      • Jonathan

        As long as you can provide me your credit card details so I can pay all the devs the tweaks you pirated out of your own wallet.

  • Veronica

    What source is this from? I can’t find it on cydia.

    • Jonathan

      Refresh sources.

  • test_11

    does “BetterPowerDown” support for iPad??

    • Fermín Osorio

      Yes it does.

  • Carlos

    Now all I need is the same aesthetics for the calling screen and I’ll be good!

  • Jon Herz

    its not showing up in cydia for me! can anyone help?

    don’t want this unless I can use Bio-Protect with it to authenticate before powering down. Don’t want this to be available to anyone, should I lose or misplace my phone.
