How to Enable Swiping for SBSettings Toggles [Video]

By Jeff Benjamin on Oct 2, 2011

A few days ago, we received a question about SBSettings; specifically, how do you enable swiping for the toggle buttons in SBSettings?

By default, SBSettings will enable more than two rows if you have more than eight buttons in your list of toggles. Because of this, there’s no need to have separate pages for toggles, due to everything fitting on a single page.

Ah, but there is a simple way to force a maximum of two rows of toggles, as this video tutorial shows you inside… Read More


SBSettings Gets Updated with iOS 5 Support

By Cody Lee on Sep 27, 2011

There’s a handful of tweaks and utilities that are simply a must-have for jailbreakers. Obviously, this list can vary from person to person, but I don’t think that anyone would argue that apps like Activator belong in the Cydia Hall of Fame.

Another title that belongs in that category, maybe most of all, is SBSettings. The utility makes accessing system settings and functions a breeze. SBSettings was just updated, and all of you early adopters will be happy to hear that it’s now iOS 5 compatible… Read More


OmniStat: System Details in Your Notification Center

By Cody Lee on Jul 8, 2011

We’ve seen a slew of iOS 5 widgets over the last couple of days. For those who don’t know, Apple released a beta version of their new iOS software a few weeks ago, and the jailbreak community has marked their territory in the Notification Center drop down menu.

So far there’s been no word from Apple yet on whether or not 3rd party developers are going get to use the space to create custom widgets, but that hasn’t stopped jailbreak developers. One of the latest widgets to surface is OmniStatRead More

Anicons: Animated Springboard Toggles

By Cody Lee on Jul 2, 2011

ModMyi broke the news today about a new project that jailbreak developer Dan Zimmerman is working on. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Zimmerman recently participated in TweakWeak, releasing utilities like the Airplane and Wi-fi Icon toggles.

If you liked those tweaks, you’re going to love Zimmerman’s next idea. The developer is now working on an entire set of settings toggles for your springboard… Read More


‘SwitcherSettings’ – Add SBSettings Toggles to the App Switcher

By Cody Lee on Jun 20, 2011

SBSettings is always the first tweak I install after jailbreaking. Even when it’s not installed, I find myself swiping at the statusbar expecting a menu to drop. The simple utility gives me quick access to toggle Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings, as well as a respring function.

Though I’ve yet to find anything in Cydia that matches the functionality of SBSettings, the competition is certainly heating up. Jeff recently told you about Homescreen Settings, which places the actions on your springboard. I’m going to tell you about SwitcherSettings, which adds the functions to your app switcher… Read More

There’s perhaps no one man more qualified to answer that question than Jay Freeman, a.k.a. “saurik.” Saurik created Cydia- the hub of the jailbreak world. He is the man responsible for what the jailbreak community has become today. Read More


SBSettings Update Brings New Features and Bug Fixes

By Guest Author on Apr 18, 2011

In the past we’ve deemed SBSettings an absolute “must have” jailbreak app for all jailbroken iPhone users, and we still stand by that statement with the latest update to the hugely popular jailbreak app.

If you’re new to the jailbreak scene and have no clue what SBSettings is, basically it’s a completely free, fast, and skinnable device manager from the developers over at BigBoss. Here’s the best part: to launch the app simply slide your  finger across the top banner and a window will drop down with several, customizable toggles such as  Bluetooth, Brightness, WiFi, 3G, Airplane mode, CallerID, and more!  Read More


How to Update Cydia in the Background

By Guest Author on Feb 16, 2011

If you’re not the type to stick around while Cydia updates, then we have a solution for you. A few new additions have appeared recently in Cydia that will allow you to update the cache that Cydia uses without actually running the app.

There are a couple of apps that perform this duty, and both of them run as SBSettings toggles. This makes it pretty easy to update Cydia while you check your email and then quickly load up Cydia to get your updates and new packages. Read More
