TweakWeek

Manually Arrange the Icons in Your Status Bar With ‘ArrangeStatusBar’

TweakWeek seems to have hit a certain stride under Elias Limneos. The prolific developer of this week’s TweakWeek entries is back at it again with something original, something that I think you’re definitely going to like.

This latest tweak is called ArrangeStatusBar, and it allows you to use a finger and manually arrange the icons residing in your iPhone’s status bar.

Needless to say, I’m thoroughly impressed with its accuracy and abundance of cool factor oozing from this tweak…

Anicons: Animated Springboard Toggles

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…

WifiIcon and AirplaneIcon: 2 Live Icons to Quickly Toggle Settings

If you don’t know what TweakWeek is by now, you haven’t been paying attention. Jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich started the initiative earlier this month, by releasing 1 free, simple jailbreak tweak every day for a week.

After Petrich completed 7 tweaks in 7 days, he passed the torch on to other jailbreak developers, each one taking a week of their own. We are nearing the end of Dan Zimmerman’s week, but the developer seems to be going out in style…

‘iScreenSaver’ Reveals Your Wallpaper as Your Screen Dims

Dan Zimmerman’s latest entry into the TweakWeek daily challenge was uploaded yesterday. The jailbreak tweak is called iScreenSaver, and it puts a new spin on the old function.

Remember when custom screen savers on your desktop were cool? The effect never really made the transition to smart phones, as 3.5″ screens don’t typically need saving. But Zimmerman’s tweak isn’t your typical screen saver…

‘SMSHideKeyboard’ Gives You More Room to View Your SMS History

One of the new features in iOS 5 is the ability to hide your keyboard when viewing your SMS history in the iMessage app.

It didn’t take long, but there is now a jailbreak tweak available that mimics said functionality, and even allows you to hide the input box as well.

For longtime biteSMS users, this won’t be new to you, but if you’ve been hanging onto that old outdated Messages app, this is a must have tweak to add to your collection.

Adjust Your App Label Position With ‘LabelMover’

LabelMover is a new jailbreak tweak that will presumably be a part of the TweakWeek selection of tweaks.

The purpose of this tweak is to adjust the position of your app icon labels about 1/4th from the top of the app icon.

That’s pretty much all this tweak sets out to do, and to be honest with you, I uninstalled this right after shooting it…

VibLert: Make Your iPhone Vibrate for All Alerts

When you put your iPhone on silent, there are certain notifications that can go unnoticed if your iPhone is in your pocket or purse. Sure, your iPhone will vibrate for missed calls and messages, but that’s about the extent of the option.

As part of the ongoing TweakWeek daily challenge, jailbreak developer Dan Zimmerman has released a utility to remedy this problem. VibLert enables the vibrating notification option for all applications…

Add Text to Your iPhone’s Lock Screen With ‘Custom Lock’

It looks like Tyler Nettleton saved one of his best jailbreak tweaks for last. His swan song, Custom Lock, allows iPhone jailbreakers to add their own custom message to their lock screen.

Custom Lock is the seventh and final entry for this round of TweakWeek and it allows you to use your iPhone’s lock screen as a virtual billboard.

A quick venture into your iPhone’s Settings app reveals a settings panel for Custom Lock that lets you add clock replacing text along with subtitle text.

Want to see what the results look like? Check inside for a brief video demo of Custom Lock in action…

‘TrickSlide’ Eliminates Your Slide to Unlock Nub in Favor of a Cleaner Look

TrickSlide is yet another entry into the TweakWeek series of iPhone jailbreak tweaks. Although the name may sound cunning and cutting edge, at the end of the day, this is nothing more than a glorified WinterBoard theme, without actually having to use WinterBoard.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but this same functionality can, and has been easily accomplished in the past by use of clever WinterBoard theming.

All that TrickSlide aims to do is to hide your “Slide to Unlock” nub on your iPhone’s lock screen; nothing more, nothing less…

‘ASB’ Jailbreak Tweak Keeps the Battery on Your iPhone’s Lock Screen at All Times

ASB or Always Show Battery, is a jailbreak tweak that aims at targeting a specific demographic of jailbreakers.

You know who you are; you’re the same ones who ask me how each and every tweak that we review impacts battery life.

It never fails; no matter how small or insignificant the tweak is, I always have at least one person ask me how it impacts the lifespan of their battery.

This post is dedicated to you, battery watchmen. ASB is a jailbreak tweak made specifically with you in mind…

‘multislide’ Supercharges Your ‘Slide to Unlock’ Bar

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get some extra mileage out of that one-trick pony Slide to Unlock bar?

That’s the purpose behind the latest TweakWeek tweak, and first entry by developer Tyler Nettleton. multislide allows you to open up pre-specified apps directly from the iPhone’s lock screen by means of the Slide to Unlock bar.

Although the name of the game with TweakWeek is short, simple, and to the point, you’ve got to respect the obvious extra effort that went into conceptualizing and designing this handy tweak…
