Activating the toggle at any time enables Do Not Disturb mode in iOS 6, which silences incoming calls and notifications while your phone is locked; that is unless you’ve enabled repeated calls or calls from your Favorites list… Read More
While the description of the tweak may sound run of the mill, it’s a beautiful looking widget that has a nifty trick up its sleeve.

True enough, it is a very beautiful widget, and its function is certainly promising, but can it take down the reigning king of all jailbreak apps?
Find out the answer to that question and more, as I go hands-on with BBSettings on video… Read More
Without a doubt, SBSettings is the de facto must have tweak among all jailbreak tweaks for the iPhone. I think if you took a poll of 100 people, 90 of them would claim that SBSettings is the one tweak that they could not live without.
With that being said, imagine my excitement when I heard that the iOS 5 beta version of SBSettings was ready for testing! I’m happy to report that it comes with tons of new settings, and beautifully integrates into iOS 5′s Notification Center.
Check inside for a full video walkthrough of the new and improved SBSettings… Read More
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
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
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 OmniStat… Read More
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
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
Why should you jailbreak the iPhone? That’s a question that gets asked here at iDB all the time. If you consider yourself a jailbreak expert, you’ve most likely been asked the same question once or twice.
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
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!

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
Did you know that the iPhone had a “Safe Mode?” Safe Mode on the iPhone has been apart of jailbreaking for years now, but many people still don’t understand it. If your iPhone is jailbroken, Safe Mode will be invoked when MobileSubstrate (the Cydia support framework) crashes.
Desktop operating systems, like Windows and Mac OS X, have had a “Safe Mode” for a long time. On the desktop, safe mode is used for removing corrupted processes that may be causing the operating system to not function properly.
The iPhone has a “Safe Mode” for that exact same reason. A simple Cydia app called “Safe Mode Launcher” allows you to invoke the iPhone’s Safe Mode with one tap. Let’s take a look…
