When you try new themes, you might be tempted to change the Home screen setup in order to bring a better look to your device. Even when you install new jailbreak tweaks, you’ll definitely have to disable the conflicting ones and this might ruin your current setup. SetBack is a new jailbreak tweak that overcomes this annoyance.

Developed by GroovyCarrot, SetBack allows you to easily switch between different saved jailbreak setups. The tweak allows you to save the current state of your setup for future use. This said, it stores all the installed tweak settings, applied Winterboard themes, icon layouts on your Home screen as well as wallpapers. With the touch of a button, you can quickly revert back to a saved setup.

Installing SetBack will add a new standalone app to your Home screen. The first time you open it, you’ll view an empty space with just one preview card that shows your Home screen and tapping on it will close the app. But, this is the place where you can access all your saved setups.

You’ll find a ‘+’ icon at the bottom of the screen that allows you to save the current state of your device. Press it and the tweak will start to save the current setup of your device. After it’s done, a new preview card will appear on the screen allowing you to switch back to it anytime you want.

You can save as many setups as you want without any limits. To switch to a different setup, simply tap on one of them and it will start to revert back to a specific saved setup followed by a respring for the changes to take place. After your device boots up, you’ll notice it looks exactly just as you saved it. Note that the tweak doesn’t uninstall any tweaks or themes. It just restores their settings. Long holding on a preview card allows you to either update the setup with your current Springboard setup, rename or delete it.

I’d definitely recommend you to give this tweak a try if you don’t want to ruin your current setup when switching to a different jailbreak tweak or theme.

You can grab SetBack from Cydia’s ModMyi repo for just $1 and it is compatible with iOS 7 iPhone and iPad.

    This is one awesome tweak.

    I wish this tweak could travel back in time to some of my previous setups :/

  • iNeedANameHere

    I’ve been using this for about a week now and it leaves me constantly wondering why such a great tweak didn’t come sooner.

    • Burge

      You mean like springback.. I believe that started on iPhone OS 3 .. I think that PKGbackup does this also i’am sure that was iPhone OS 2.. So it was done a lot sooner.

      • iNeedANameHere

        Neither consistently worked for me. Springback never worked for me and PkgBackup would occasionally only do a partial restore. It worked fine up until around iOS 4 for me. Stopped using it after I could never tell if it would actually work each time. I’ve been jailbreaking since the good ole iPhone 2G days. Still have it actually. Hop on it from time to time just to remember the good days 😉

      • Burge

        Pkg wasn’t to bad.. But springback was great for me.. I used it for iNav themes.. Remember them ?

      • iNeedANameHere

        Haha yes. So much trouble to set up but sooo worth it. Blew so many peoples minds when they saw my phone set up

      • Burge

        Best themes ever on any phone. Yes they did take awhile setting up..haha..

        I’ve just remember the name of the dev who thought of them.. reeco. God thats sad ..

      • iNeedANameHere

        Haha those were the days. And believe me. I remember a lot more random iPhone facts that are even sadder lol

  • Jonathan

    I know this is kinda random, but can I get some testers for something?
    I need: iPhone 4/4s user (any color)
    White/gold iPhone 5/5s user.

    I just need one thing tested.

    • Abbas

      i got Iphone 5, ready if when you are

      • Jonathan

        White/Gold? If so, please contact me on Twitter. @Firebirdflame1

  • bigzjoseph

    this is legitimately dope

  • Liam Mulcahy

    Probably takes up alot of ram

    • Not really. Without actually trying it, my understanding is that it simply modifies configuration files e.g. modifies the WinterBoard config to set it up exactly as SetBack saved it and modifies configurations for widgets and other things…

  • Utrarunner5

    So this is basically time machine backup for iPhone
