ScrollingBoard, The Ultimate Jailbreak Tweak for Your iPhone’s Dock

By Alex Heath on Dec 4, 2010

ScrollingBoard is a new Cydia tweak that let’s you have scrolling, unlimited icons in your dock and folders, and addons in your dock (like iPod controls). What makes ScrollingBoard so interesting is that not only does it bring a few new features to your jailbroken device, but it also replicates the functions of other popular jailbreak tweaks in the process.

ScrollingBoard’s main goal is to make your iOS device’s dock as useful as can be. The native arrangement of icons on your home screen’s pages is also available on your dock with ScrollingBoard. The addons and SBSettings integration that ScollingBoard brings to the dock also make this tweak especially worth the $1.50 price tag…

Tutorial: How To Replace the Pink biteSMS Icon With the Stock SMS Icon

By Jeff Benjamin on Dec 2, 2010

Jailbreaking is without a doubt one of the best features about owning an iPhone. Not only are there some totally cool apps that you couldn’t get your hands on otherwise, but you can fully customize your iPhone’s look to fit your style.

biteSMS is one such application that gives users much more functionality than Apple’s stock offering. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could completely replace the stock SMS application with biteSMS, all the way down to the look and name of the app icon? Indeed it would be, that’s why we’ve created an in-depth tutorial for you inside…

Obsessively Check Your Data Usage with New SBSettings Toggle

By Guest Author on Nov 10, 2010

If you’re a new iPhone adopter in the U.S., chances are you’re on the limited 2GB data plan. To keep track of your data usage, you have two options: Navigate to Settings > General > Usage, OR log into your AT&T account via the MyWireless app or online. Neither option is quick or easy.

This simple add-on for jailbroken iPhones changes that. The Data Usage SBSettings tweak adds a toggle to your SBSettings menu that lets you see your total upload, download, and combined data usage. So now you can get quick and easy access to your monthly data usage (provided you’re manually resetting the counter every month)…

If You Could Only Choose One Jailbreak App

By Jeff Benjamin on Oct 28, 2010

If you could only have one jailbreak app, which one would it be? I had to think long and hard about this, because there are so many great jailbreak apps that make the iPhone such a delightful device to use.

Ultimately, though, I was able to decide on one app in particular that I just can’t live without. Can you guess what it is?

5 of the Best SBSettings Themes

By Alex Heath on Oct 11, 2010

If you have jailbroken your iOS device, chances are you’ve heard of SBSettings. For years, it has remained one of the staple applications of the BigBoss repo in the Cydia store. If you aren’t familiar with SBSettings, go read our original review of the app.

In my opinion, SBSettings is enough reason to jailbreak. The app is that useful. I’m not sure why Apple hasn’t implemented the idea into iOS yet. I love being able to quickly toggle my iPhone’s resources and settings on and off.

The two things I love in an app are functionality and aesthetics. And in most cases, I won’t use an app if it doesn’t have both. The functionality of SBSettings is undeniable, but I’ve found that finding an aesthetically pleasing theme for the app is somewhat tedious. So, I have done my best to comb the far reaches of Cydia to bring you five of the best SBSettings themes…

Remove Background Toggle for SBSettings

By Sébastien Page on Aug 16, 2010

Remove Background is a new mod available in Cydia that adds a toggle to SBSettings allowing you to remove all apps from the task switcher, and kill apps processes at the same time. It’s pretty handy because your app switcher can get messy really quickly if you recently opened several applications

I’ve been looking for a similar app for a while and although Remove Background works as advertised, I find it to be too “extreme” for me. I rarely (if ever) want to kill all apps at once. Instead, I’d like to be able to select in the settings what apps I never want to run in the background or appear in the task switcher. If you’re a developer, feel free to use my idea…

What about you? Have you used Remove Background? What do you think about it?
