Have you been looking for a way to make your iPhone’s ringtone more personalized? Do you enjoy listening to jazz ensembles? Well if you answered yes to one of, or (preferably) both of these questions, you need a Singtone.
What’s a Singtone? Well it’s a ringtone, customized and sung just for you by the folks of Ensemble 101. The group is looking to take its jazz act on the road next year, and they are hoping to use Singtone sales to fund the tour… Read More

Creating custom ringtones is possible without jailbreaking, but it’s still not the simplest feat in the world.
Jailbreaking, on the other hand, makes creating custom ringtones extremely easy.
AnyRing is one such jailbreak app dedicated to creating custom ringtones, SMS alerts, and mail alerts. Check out our video highlights of the recently updated app inside. Read More

Tired of the mundane “beep” that Siri does when you initially invoke her? Maybe you found our tutorial on how to make Siri say “Yes?” compelling?
If that wasn’t enough for you, then you can take it a step further and create your own custom Siri audio introduction as well. Check inside for our full tutorial… Read More

All kinds of weird and wonderful things pop up at CES, and this year’s event was no different. Possibly the most off-the-wall thing we’ve come across has to be this custom bike, put together by Mark Abate.
If Batman had a bike made that featured an iPad and two LCD panels where the mirrors used to be, then we are fairly certain this is what it would look like! If neon lights and huge speakers aren’t enough to get your juices flowing, just look at the size of those tires… Read More

There have been many keyboard tweaks released over the years, and I’ve had issues with practically all of them.
iKeyWi is the latest keyboard tweak to make its way to Cydia, but this one if probably one of the more stable ones that I’ve used thus far.
That’s not to say that it’s not without a few opportunities for improvement, but as you’ll see on video, it’s a very good start… Read More

As we told you yesterday, iFaith — the Windows based tool that allows you to manage SHSH blobs on all devices sans the iPhone 4S — has been updated with the ability to save iOS 5.x blobs, and create custom firmware that you can use to downgrade your iOS 5 device.
It works very similar to RedSn0w’s stitching feature, except the big difference here is that it encompasses Apple’s APTicket and features iOS 5 compatibility.
Up until now it was impossible to downgrade an iOS 5.x device to a previous version of iOS 5. That’s no longer the case, as our video tutorial shows you inside… Read More

We brought you the teaser trailer, and now we’re bringing you the full story.
To celebrate the release of Springtomize 2, we’ve taken an in-depth look at the sequel to what is already a legendary app for jailbroken iPhones.
Where Springtomize changed the game with an insane amount of options and tweaks to customize the look of your iPhone’s SpringBoard, Springtomize 2 is a much more polished rendition built from the ground up for iOS 5.
If you’re at all interested in customizing your iPhone, you do not want to miss this video walkthrough… Read More

Let’s face it, the iPhone’s lack of boot jingles is a bit on the boring side. Every phone that I can ever remember has had some sort of nifty boot jingle, but the iPhone? Nada.
That’s about to change with the advent of the upcoming iStartupSound, which will be a free jailbreak tweak available soon on the ModMyi Repo.
Want to hear it in action? Check inside for the audible goodness… Read More

We’ve seen some useful custom widgets come out of the jailbreak community in the last few weeks- UISettings and StatusGoogle to name a few. But we’ve also seen some not-so-useful offerings, like ScreenLocker. Who needs another way to toggle the display’s lock orientation?
Although some widgets might not be as useful to some as others, it’s still cool that they’re available. iOS 5 has only been out a month, so it’s just nice that developers are churning out tons of stuff for us to play with. That being said, here’s SlideCenter… Read More

We figure that most folks that haven’t opted to try jailbreaking iOS 5 by now aren’t going to. Perhaps you are waiting on an untethered jailbreak, or for more iOS 5 support from your favorite Cydia apps. But for those of you who have been waiting for more trivial reasons, check this out.
If the previously available custom widgets haven’t caught your eye yet, let me show you StatusGoogle. The utility installs itself into your Notifications Center drop down menu, and allows you to initiate a Google search inside any app with a swipe of your finger… Read More

We’ve gotten some complaints in the past that we don’t give older iPhones any lovin’. The truth is, we try to keep up with innovation in the jailbreak community and there just typically isn’t much of that going on for devices older than the 3GS. Especially since Apple stopped supporting them.
But for folks with older iDevices that really want to join in on the jailbreaking festivities, check out Whited00r. If you haven’t heard about this cool little project, it’s essentially a firmware file that has been modified to include multitasking, video recording and oh yeah, it’s jailbroken…

As many of you know, with the release of iOS 4.0 Apple discontinued support for the iPhone 2G as well as the iPod Touch 1G. This left iPhone 2G and iPod Touch 1G stuck on iOS 3.1.3 for life. Furthermore, while Apple did end up upgrading the iPhone 3G (which has the same amount of RAM/processor as the iPhone 2G), 3G owners experienced a great deal of problems after updating to 4.0. The OS was incredibly slow and was barely usable.
After various reports and angry iPhone 3G users, Apple began to look into the issue and stated the issues would be resolved in iOS 4.2.1. When iOS 4.2.1 came around, performance had been improved on the iPhone 3G, but it was still quite slow. Most users decided to downgrade/remain on iOS 3.1.3.

You either love custom ringtones or you invariably loathe them. You can put me down in the latter category. Nevertheless there are many who love hearing a portion of their favorite jam when someone calls, or assigning certain songs that fit the personality of a specific contact in their address book. If you fit into the group that loves custom alerts, you’re in luck. Read More

One of the main reasons to jailbreak your iPhone is that it allows you to add custom themes and make it stand out from the crowd of blend and boring iPhones out there. Using WinterBoard you can customize the look of your iPhone, including icons, wallpaper, dock, etc… You can literally spend hours creating and tweaking themes to make them unique, and original.
Within the past few weeks, I have been selecting several beautiful and original iPhone themes that I’d like to share with you today. More after the break… Read More
