SBSettings

If You Could Only Choose One Jailbreak App

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

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

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?
