MiniPlayer 2.0 is out with a new look courtesy of Surenix

Earlier this week, we told you about a new jailbreak tweak called MiniPlayer. It’s essentially a hidable widget for your device’s music controls, which was based on a concept from Auxo-designer Sentry, and looks a lot like the iTunes 11 mini player.

The initial release saw mixed reviews, but if you weren’t a believer before you need to checkout today’s update. MiniPlayer 2.0 just hit Cydia, and thanks to a complete UI overhaul by Ayecon theme designer Surenix, it looks and feels much better…

How to perfectly mesh your Auxo installation with ayecon

Ayecon is by far the most popular jailbreak theme that we’ve seen in quite some time, and its popularity doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Auxo, like ayecon, is insanely popular in its own right. But how do you get the pair to play nice together? It’s actually really simple — you download the official ayecon theme for Auxo, that’s how.

ayecon Auxo Theme is a free WinterBoard theme, and it comes directly from the creator of ayecon — Surenix. That means you can expect it to be a 1:1 match with the rest of the ayecon theme from a visual perspective.

How to change your folder icons layout with 2×2 Folder Icons

Surenix, the designer/developer behind the hugely popular ayecon theme has just released a simple tweak for iOS that changes the layout of your folder icons. Normally, a folder icon shows a preview grid of up to nine icons for apps that are placed in a given folder. With the 2×2 Folder Icons tweak, you can change this 3×3 grid of icons to a 2×2…

ActiveDock brings an OS X inspired dock to iOS

When you hear about an upcoming tweak collaboration between jailbreak community staples like Filippo Bigarella and Surenix, then the tweak is pretty much destined to be good. Unsurprisingly, that is the case for the upcoming ActiveDock, a jailbreak tweak that brings an OS X styled dock to the small screen.

We’ve gone hands-on with ActiveDock and put it through its paces. Needless to say, we came away impressed. Check out our video walkthrough inside.

Ayecon updated with new dial pad, more icons and bug fixes

Since the evasi0n jailbreak was released last week, we’ve seen a wave of tweak and package updates as developers rush to fix remaining iOS 6 bugs and add new features. Today, our favorite theme joins in; ayecon 1.3 is now available in Cydia.

The update is fairly significant, as it includes a number of additions and improvements. There’s a new dial pad (for iOS 6+ only) and new icons for apps like Google Maps and Netbot. We’ve got the full change log for ayecon 1.3 after the fold…

The tale of my three days at the epicenter of the jailbreak community

I went to JailbreakCon full of good intentions. I was going to live tweet the event, I was going to write posts about every speak, and I was going to interview as many speakers as I could. As it turned out, I did none of that. Instead, I soaked in as much as I could from everyone around me. I did what I hadn’t done for a long time: I socialized!

When I say that I socialized, I’m not saying that I pretended to be friends with some people I mostly knew on Twitter. No, I actually lived with these people for three days, learned about their lives, their habits, and their personality. I learned about the real “them”, not the image they sometimes give of them on Twitter or IRC.

This is the story of my three days at the epicenter of the jailbreak community. You won’t learn anything here about the iOS 6 jailbreak, because what happens at JailbreakCon stays at JailbreakCon, but hopefully, you will get a glimpse a the other side of the jailbreak community…

ayecon WinterBoard theme released on Cydia


ayecon, the highly anticipated WinterBoard theme from popular iOS theme designer, Surenix, just made its debut on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. To take advantage of the theme, you must have a Retina enabled iPhone or iPod touch, and be running iOS 5 or above.

As you no doubt noticed in our hands-on walkthrough, ayecon is a stunner in the looks department. Although I think our video does a good job at displaying the crazy amount of detail possessed by ayecon, it really needs to be witnessed in person to be totally appreciated.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not nearly as into theming my iPhone as I used to be, but ayecon has helped rekindle my interest somewhat. You can purchase it now for $2.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Let us know what you think about it in the comments.
