Activator 1.9.6 beta 1

A new beta version of Activator is now available for download. The often-updated staple jailbreak tweak from developer Ryan Petrich brings several new features and fixes to the table.

Check out this post to learn what the update contains and how to install the updated version on your jailbroken device.

Activator 1.9.6 beta 1 change log:

  • Add system power down view action
  • Adjust naming of custom actions/events to “Build”
  • Add launch playing app action
  • Only remedy corrupt Today/Tomorrow notification settings upon install
  • Update Localizations

Here is a look at some of the Activator beta’s new features:

System power down view action:

Power Down view Activator beta

The system power down view action can be assigned to a gesture to immediately access the power down slider. This lets you bypass the delay that normally occurs when holding down the sleep button.

Launch playing app action:

Launch playing App activator beta

This launches the app that’s currently playing audio.

The naming of custom events has been rebranded as Build, which is makes sense, seeing as you’re creating new actions from scratch.
