If you’re a long time jailbreak user, you’ll know that a lot of tweaks require you to respring your device after installing them from Cydia or when you configure their settings. There is a lot of tweaks on Cydia that mimic the Respring functionality, but PullToRespring is a brand new jailbreak tweak that takes advantage of the Settings menu in order to perform the same job.

Normally, most other tweaks provide an option to respring your device after long holding the Sleep button. On the other hand, PullToRespring takes advantage of the Settings menu by allowing you to respring your device by swiping down the menu, the same way you would swipe down the mails list in the stock Mail app to check for new emails.

Once you install the tweak, there is not much configuration to make. All you’ll find is a kill switch toggle right next to the tweak’s name in the Settings menu to enable or disable it whenever you want.

Personally, the tweak might sound like a cool idea, but if you’re concerned about efficiency, I recommend that you check out other tweaks such as BetterPowerDown or Power Tap, which allow you to respring your device quickly from anywhere within iOS just by holding down the Sleep button.

Yet, if you’re interested to take this tweak for a ride, PullToRespring is available on Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free and works on both iOS 7 and iOS 8 devices.

What do you think of PullToRespring? Do you prefer this tweak over others available on Cydia? Let us know in the comments section below.

  • I can’t wait for BetterPowerDown to work with my iPhone 6, but for now I’m just using the Respring switch in QuickActivator. Maybe I’ll give PullToRespring a try, though.

    • I use a tweak called ubercontrols which is very similar to betterpowerdown but it’s not available in cydia and has to be installed via openssh or using ifile, works really well though

    I guess the reason that BetterPowerDown etc. never appealed to me is that turning my phone off is something I do vanishingly rarely, so it feels like an unnatural action. Whereas opening Settings is a completely normal part of my phone use, so this seems more natural to me.

  • CCSettings does it for me.

  • Agru

    For those on ios8, the pangu app does it too
