It was a real solid week for Cydia releases. What’s your favorite tweak from the past week?

  • Itzkhaoz

    What’s the name of the tweak that prevents the “low battery 20%” message to pop up in middle of screen?

    • Anthony Lara

      Hideme8 can hide those type of alerts and more.

      • Itzkhaoz

        Thank you, Anthony 🙂

      • Anthony Lara

        Anytime bro

    • Zuhair Aslam

      There’s a tweak that instead of a pop-up, it comes up as a banner. The tweak is called PowerBanners. It’s free too, so check it! I really love it 😀

      • Itzkhaoz

        Awesome..thanks!

        It’s updated for 8.4? When I tried installing it, it put me in safe mode :/

      • Mr_Coldharbour

        Really? It did that for you? I’m on 8.4 jailbroken and no Safe Mode here, it’s working fine for me. I know there’s a small disclaimer warning in the package description that states “not compatible with iOS 8.4” but someone on Twitter told me that it was working for them on 8.4 just fine. So I went ahead installed it and it’s working just OK. Maybe there’s some tweak conflict/clash your device is experiencing?

    • TaylorMadeRedd

      I use NoLowPowerAlert

  • Luke Per

    can some one explain to me what the benefits of watchdog is? In simple words? Is it good for your battery?

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      It is good if you don’t leave it on too long or only have one app. Like uploading to Dropbox and leaving it open is a huge plus. A few hours later turn it off and it might have used 6%’for 3 hours.

  • Alberto Espinal

    ProximityActivator didn’t work for me

  • f1ght3r

    Don’t waste your money on Alympus. It’s very “under cooked” and needs more time in development.

    • Paul Edmund

      I’ve found that out the hard way.

      • f1ght3r

        Me too. I’m tired of paying for tweaks only to find they don’t as well as advertised. I wish there was a way we could a refund. Even within 24 hours or so. Would have saved me a lot of money.

      • Niclas

        Saurk does give refunds.

  • Paul Edmund

    Alympus has battery drain and the hotspot toggle doesn’t work. Can’t wait for an update.

    • Xee

      Yeah i have noticed a battery drain since installing Alympus too. Just wanting to confirm with others on iDB were getting the same.

      Anyone know when this will be fixed?

  • Lucus Bendzsa

    How long does it take for the Auxo developer to change a light bulb?

    He doesn’t change the lightbulb. He buys a new house and then takes a year installing the light bulbs in that new house.

        Worthless piece of trash get off of iDownlaodblog and go troll somewhere else. I have reported all of your comments and I am watching iDonwloadblog so get the heck away from here.

      • GFY!

  • Steve Davidson

    Can some one please make an app switcher tweak that emulates safari’s card style animation. This would be so nice, swipe left or right to dismiss & possibly small icons at the top center or side of the card. I know switchability tried this but it was very very bad, nothing like safari.

    • Poporopo00

      That is something they should do and call it maybe Auxo “something” but Alympus???…come on, i know is a hard work but is a piece of junk.

      Good thing, i could try it before paying for it. I would pay an upgrade fee for AUXO even if they just update it with no changes…again is a lot of work so we might as well support them, but yes, i’d like to have some like the Lollipop style and safari is a good example.

  • Poporopo00

    Alympus is junk.
    I like productive tweas. Alympus is not the case.
    Just a simple update to make it compatible would be enough for a lot of us.

    My opinion, of course.

    • Steve Davidson

      yeah honestly I did kinda like it. But the paging was very weird. it didn’t catch like it does on the springboard so it made it hard to control. I have been looking for a vertical app switcher for a very long time and cannot find a suitable one. If I knew how I would make one but I would not even know where to begin lol. This is why I do have respect for these guys making this stuff, im 31 and these devs are as young as high school, pretty impressive actually. Anyhow man I am dying for a lollipop or even friggin ICS style would be cool.

      • Poporopo00

        Well, if i knew how to do it of course i would too and i respect them too buying their tweak or donating to them (I’ve gotten a few free copies for doing that) but that was my opinion and for what i need or for what they said the tweak is just “another tweak”. I texted many times to Surenix about updating some how AUKI and he said “we will develop a new one” and i haven’t seen it. Tweaks like AUKI makes you productive but i guess more people wants just to have fancy animations and things like that. As you say, i’ll love to see a Lollipop switcher but most of them are concentrated in themes and things like that.
        Just to say something; I bought MessageHeads, Columba, Intellix(Includes Messages+), Messages…just trying to find the right one and i picked AUKI.

        And yes, they are young, i’m 36 and i wish i would be able to do what they do, but that is all they do HAHA…they have to be good at it. ( My 11yo son is trying to build something for his ipod, i hope he gets it, HE BETTER! that is all he does…hahahahaha… at went to the school in the mornings and work with a welder in the afternoon until 7pm in order to make it…hahaha…HE BETTER BE GOOD A IT)

        They do a great jog, and i admire what they can do, i just didn’t like this one. Not what i expected.

        Good Luck Steve.

    Watchdog pro seems to clash with my sky sports score centre app, doesn’t load when tweak is installed, loads when I uninstall it?
