Phenomenon: an intuitive tweak that combines the App Switcher with Control Center

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 30, 2016

In terms of utilitarian thinking, the current App Switcher and Control Center interfaces in iOS 9 do their jobs just fine.

It’s those with creative minds that continue to look past the individual interfaces and find new ways to combine them together into all-in-one interfaces that continue to power App Switcher replacement jailbreak tweaks in Cydia.

Yet another new Cydia release to do such a thing is a jailbreak tweak called Phenomenon, which we’ll be showing you in this review. Read More

Fixing size mismatch errors in Cydia when trying to install a tweak

Size mismatch errors are something that seem to plague me every once in a blue moon when I try to install a jailbreak tweak right after an update is released, or after Cydia refreshes its sources.

Fix: Black Screen of Death after installing nitoTV on jailbroken Apple TV 4

By Sébastien Page on Apr 21, 2016

I was trying to boot up my jailbroken Apple TV a few days ago when I suddenly got hit by the Black Screen of Death. It’s something I had seen mentioned online before, but not experienced myself, so I was a little taken aback.

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 21, 2016

SwitchHUD makes it easy to toggle between iPhone volume modes

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 20, 2016

The two most commonly-used volume modes in iOS are the ringer volume and media volume. The ringer volume controls the volume of text tones, ring tones, and notification sounds, while the media volume controls the volume of your music and videos.

The only problem is, iOS likes to default to the ringer volume all the time, unless you have media playing. If you do, that’s the only time the volume buttons will actually change the media volume level.

If you don’t like that solution, then hold on to your seats, because we’re going to be showing you a new free jailbreak tweak called SwitchHUD, which takes volume switching to the next level by letting you manually toggle between the two at any time with an Activator action. Read More

 

Marquee lets you have long, scrolling folder names in iOS

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 20, 2016

If you’ve ever had a folder name that was too long for iOS to display, then you probably had an atrocious-looking folder title like the one above; cut off, and ended with an ellipsis.

Unfortunately, the way stock iOS handles longer folder names makes it nearly impossible to tell what the entire folder title is.

That’s why a new free jailbreak tweak called Marquee is going to appeal to those of you with the desire to have longer folder names on your Home screen. Read More

 

Downgrades no longer possible as Apple stops signing iOS 9.3 for some devices

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 18, 2016

On Monday, Apple has pulled the signing plug on its iOS 9.3 firmware for its lineup of iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads.

As a result, downgrades through iTunes to iOS 9.3 are no longer possible, and there’s no way to upgrade specifically to iOS 9.3 from an earlier firmware.

Instead, users will be directed to install iOS 9.3.1 when restoring or updating their devices through iTunes.

Update: It seems that not all versions of iOS 9.3 have stopped being signed. It appears that iOS 9.3 is not being any longer for newer devices (i.e. iPhone 6s, iPad Air 2), but it is still being signed for older devices (ie. iPhone 5s). Read More

‘Volume Mixer 2’ lets you configure all volume settings in one interface

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 16, 2016

Your iOS device has multiple volume settings, and each one controls something different.

For example, you have your media volume, which affects your song and video sound output, and you have your ringer volume, which affects your ringtones, text tones, and notification sounds. But there are also other volume settings that you can set where applicable.

Volume Mixer 2 is a jailbreak tweak that provides you with an interface where you can conveniently adjust all of those volume levels at one time, and in this review, we’ll talk about how it works. Read More

This tweak keeps music from resuming after hanging up a call on your iPhone

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 13, 2016

Anyone who uses their iPhone to pick up calls, whether they’re phone calls or FaceTime calls, knows that when music is playing, iOS will automatically pause the music until the phone call ends. When it does, iOS will resume the song where it left off.

Those who don’t like how the music resumes after a phone call really have no way to disable the feature on a stock iPhone; instead, you would have to go back to the app that is playing the music and pause it manually.

A new free jailbreak tweak called PauseAfterCall solves this problem. Read More

 

Molar: an immersive Bluetooth keyboard shortcut tweak for jailbroken devices

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 12, 2016

Using a Bluetooth keyboard with your iOS device is not unheard of, especially with the much more powerful iPad Pro that Apple is dubbing a true mobile competitor for notebook computers. Unfortunately, what Apple lets you do with them is quite limited.

A new jailbreak tweak called Molar is now available in Cydia for $1.99 that gives your iOS device a plethora of Bluetooth keyboard controls that stock iOS device users could only dream of having.

In this review, we’ll talk about what Molar allows you to do on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard. Read More

By Anthony Bouchard on Apr 11, 2016

Every so often you send or receive a cherishable or important message in the Messages app on your iPhone, whether by SMS or iMessage. In some cases, it would be really nice if iOS offered a way for you to boak ark those messages so you could look back on them more easily later on.

A new free jailbreak tweak called SmsSave is available in Cydia and gives you the power to bookmark messages right inside of the Messages app on your iOS device. We’re going to show you in this review how it’s used and talk about why it’s going to be helpful. Read More
