Velox 2 Settings App

March 6, 2015. That was when I previewed Velox 2 on video. Needless to say it’s been a long journey for this tweak, but it’s finally available for purchase on Cydia.

Velox is a tweak that lets you access custom folders for apps that contain notifications, or access various functions pertaining to the app. Some apps, like the Settings app, feature a folder full of special functions. Other apps, apps that haven’t been given special attention, simply show any available notifications.

The original Velox was easily one of my most anticipated Cydia tweaks, but in the end, it never quite lived up to the hype. That said, it’s still a very popular tweak with lots of innovating features, and totally worth a look. Watch our video of Velox 2 for a reminder of what to expect.

Unfortunately, I’ve been having DRM issues with Velox, so I haven’t been able to get the final Cydia build to work on my iPhone 6 Plus. Others have apparently had no issue with this.

Velox 2 is now available on Cydia for $1.99. If you have it installed, please let me know what your experience with the tweak has been like thus far. Do you like it? Do you find that the custom app folders make your life easier? Drop me a line in the comments with the details.

    This is why I dislike DRM. Instead of preventing ‘piracy’ it provides a poor user experience for legitimate paying customers. Not that I endorse it but anyone using an illegitimate copy of the tweak probably doesn’t even have these issues since chances are the DRM would have been removed…

      Actually, because the DRM is cracked in the pirated version, it would (in some cases) require a valid licence to use the product which either prevents functionally or totally corrupts the files all together. I personally don’t mind DRM, knowing that I’m supporting the developers and plus it carries through a purchasing cloud; no need to worry about waiting for an updated cracked version.

    Hmm, looks like I should just wait it out then.

    On a different note – I know you already have a video review for Asphaleia 2, will we be seeing that today?? That tweak will determine whether or not I update to iOS 9 immediately after JB release or towards the release of iOS X.

    Let me know when Auxo is up

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      We’ll be waiting a while for that, they might even make Auxo 4. I’m finding it funny how tweaks say “Not supporting 8.4” but after installing them, they work just fine.

      • Lucus Bendzsa

        I know. The tweaks that I bought won’t let me install on 8.4 so they work. I purchased them legitimately though, for this reason I pirated them to work on 8.4 and it works. I feel no harm since I already layed for these tweaks!

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        Originally the pirated tweaks are only there to “Test” them. Given that there’s no demo or any type of trial with a lot of them, it makes it inconclusive on whether or not it’s worth buying. I pirate them to test, if I like it, then I buy them.

      • This, I’ve been burned so many times in the past. The worst offenders are winterboard themes. IMHO they must have a 24hr demo period, it would really double their sales.

      • Blip dude

        Wait, you’re seriously telling me that there are pirated versions that actually work on unsupported firmware unlike their legal counterparts?? If this really is true than all I have to say is wow, what a way to condone piracy on ones own tweak. I just find it hard to believe as in the past I had experiments with pirated tweak and boy did they screw my devices up!! So from then on I purchased my tweaks with no regrets.

      • Bugs Bunnay

        hop on the pirate band wagon (ship) again!

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        You have to take in account that yes, they do work however some don’t always work as the legitimate versions advertise. They can mess up your device and when they’re out of date, they require patients to update or they result in failure/malfunction.

      • Lucus Bendzsa

        You see the blocks are only on Cydia not the tweak. For this reason you can download these tweaks illegitimately and sometimes they work. If you fidn they don’t work oh well remove it. The best repo is repo.biteyourapple. Net. Please remove the space!

  • Abdelrhman

    its good but doesn’t lock apps

  • Ash O

    Purchased this tweak on 2 days ago, and I’m still not able to download the license. It just gives me a ‘timed out’ error message every time.

  • Noam

    Just purchased Velox 2 but the springboard crashes when I swipe up the clock stock app. why this is happening?

  • M2

    Just dowload the cracked version. Much easier. Yeah, I said it.

    • PIRATE4LIFE

      can i have link?

    • Jaime Micha

      did the cracked version work?
