Stride 2 Drawing

Adam Bell’s much-loved Stride jailbreak tweak has finally received some love for iOS 7, and it comes in the form of Stride 2, a brand new upcoming incarnation of Stride that works on Apple’s latest version of iOS.

Stride 2 lets users unlock their devices by drawing a password on screen using a finger. It’s an elegant and individualistic method for unlocking a device. Have a look at our full video review of Stride 2 inside.

Once you install Stride 2, you’ll need to head to the stock Settings app and find its preferences. Inside of Stride 2’s preferences, you’ll find a kill-switch to enable or disable the tweak, and an option to record your password.

Tapping the record password button brings you to an interface dedicated to establishing a new password. You’ll find a canvas to practice your password drawing strokes, a Change Password button for when you’re ready to create your password, and an Options button for setting password recognition strictness.

Stride 2 interface

Once you tap the record button, you’ll be asked to draw you password three successive times in order to capture your drawing. During each drawing process, you’re not allowed to lift your finger off of the screen until you’re finished. In other words, the password must be a contiguous drawing with no line breaks.

After you’ve finished recording your password, tap the Save button in the upper right-hand corner to save it. You can then head to the Lock screen, and test our your drawing.

Stride prefs

Once on the Lock screen, swipe from left to right to access the password drawing canvas. From there, you can draw you password, or tap the cancel button to enter the device’s standard numerical passcode. A passcode must be enabled on your device before you can configure Stride 2 to work. I should also mention that Stride plays nice with the iPhone 5s’ Touch ID sensor.

Stride 2 is a great way to customize the unlocking experience on your iPhone, and it looks beautiful in the process. It’s available for $2.99 right now on the BigBoss repo.

    Ain’t nobody got time for dat xD j.k

  • ipadaircolor

    Too expensive.

    • D4x3n0

      Yeah! thats True… and i have noticed that almost everyone, even new coders, sell their tweaks nowadays. Some tweaks that they sell are not even worth buying.

      • Osama Muhammed

        you dont know how hard it is to build and code such a thing, he didnt come up with this from day and night

      • back on iPhone OS 1.1.4 all tweaks and apps were free

    • βœͺ aidan harris βœͺ

      It’s not insanely expensive but it would have been nice to offer a discount for existing owners of the original iOS 6 Stride. I’d probably buy it with a discount since it would be an incentive to buy it as an impulse buy but since this isn’t something I want / need I think I’ll pass…

  • Jeff can I have your wallpaper please?

    • Mohamed Hassabo

      Here it is.

      • Jonathan

  • Mounish MN

    I just installed Convergence. Does anyone know if it’s compatible? If so, I will so buy this.

    • TeChNoStyLeZ

      download a cracked version and try it , if it is buy the real one

      • Jonathan

        I’d rather wait for a brave soul to tell me. =P

      • Dave

        No it doesn’t. Just the normal passcode screen comes up.

      • Jonathan

        Oh well, thanks for telling me! πŸ˜€

  • Abbas

    I want that wallpaper instead. come on Jeff. Post it out πŸ˜€

    • Mohamed Hassabo

      Or maybe I will πŸ˜€

      • Abbas

        you wrote that a couple of times below but i don’t see the wallpaper?

      • Abbas

        got it, Thanks Man.

  • ic0dex

    Again, looks cool but there are much easer ways to unlock your screen for free and faster.

  • sonny

    Not even a discount for people who bought stride on iOS 6?

  • Tesla

    This needs WIFI override added to its preferences. So I can skip input when at home. The iOS 6 version also needs it.

  • pedro

    Yesterday i did something unexpected the reason why i did it is because i was tired of the TWEAKS! that are coming for IOS 7, must of them are not even good looking tweaks like it just to be on IOS 6 for example AUXO 2! i think that is a completely mess from what we just to have, so i went and update my 4S running IOS 7.0.6 to IOS 7.1.1, and i feel better! WHY? Because my phone is faster and a lot of bugs were fix with this update but not even that the main reason why i did it is because i know it aint going to be no JAILBREAK for IOS 7.1.1..lets wait for IOS 8

    • Derp

      Cool story bro

      • Mago

        Right!! Having a stock iPhone is like been in jail you most follow the system!! No freedom!!

      • pedro

        mmmm not for me i been in the jailbreak community for quite long, i think is time to take a break and wait for IOS 8

  • It would be nice if there was the ability to set the title text on the “draw to unlock” screen… I liked that aspect of Stride a lot! Don’t mind paying 2.99 for this though I would definitely have appreciated an “upgrade” discount.

    • pedro

      thats why i update my device to IOS 7.1.1

  • Vijay Panjwani

    Lol! After having touch ID, every lock screen protection tweak is kinda worthless πŸ˜›

    • Littlewing745

      Totally untrue! I like having a “medium” level of security to my phone so that my wife/friends/etc. can access it if they need to without my ALWAYS having to do it. However, it’s nice to then have that extra layer – Touch ID – for the areas of the phone that I’d rather not have everyone accessing (for example, work emails). I don’t at all feel that Touch ID is a one-stop solution for everything.

  • CAS

    I want PatternUnlock :-/

  • Jon Herz

    when will this be available?

  • Mago

    Does anyone who use this tweak on ios 6 knows if your phone goes into safemode does this protect your phone like androidlock xt does!!

  • Andrei Tuduran

    Great tweak! Bought it!

  • McBobson

    Wow, this is really cool.

  • Chuck Finley

    I was excited about Stride 2 being released, then I remembered I have a 5S so I don’t really need it.

    Great tweak though, had it installed back on my 4S.
