Use Notate to switch off the automatic landscape mode

The iPhone 6 Plus has a number of advantages compared to the regular iPhone 6. The main one, however, is that the screen automatically rotates to landscape when you use your SpringBoard. Additionally, devices that use tweaks like Upscale or LittleBrother can also use auto rotation.

However, not everybody likes this feature and it seems like many actually find it annoying, me included. Luckily, it seems like there is a solution for it, as it can be achieved by downloading  the jailbreak tweak Notate, which is a brand new Cydia tweak that is quickly rising in popularity, thanks to its one, but important feature which allows you to switch off or switch on the automatic home screen movement, that the iPhone 6 Plus is known for.  Read More...

Get access to advanced settings with AdvancedSettings8

Today we’ll take a look at a great Cydia tweak, known by the name of AdvancedSettings8 that was developed for more advanced users and that manages to unlock quite a number of iPhone settings that are generally well hidden in order to remove any confusion that the terms may give users.

While I have been using iOS devices for a couple of years and I consider myself somewhat of an advanced user, there were still quite a large number of settings unlocked by the Cydia app which looked peculiar.

Do You Really Want to Send that Message? Get a Chance to Think with SendDelay

We’ve covered a similar Cydia tweak in the past, but this one may do its job even better when compared to the last one. With this in mind, how many of us have sent a message and realised, on pressing send, that it was going to the wrong person? Unfortunately, once you press send, that’s it and your message is gone. Luckily, there is now a jailbreak tweak called SendDelay that gives you that second chance that may be ‘life-saving’ in some cases.

SendDelay imposes a short delay before your message is actually sent. In your message app, you will notice a red “stop” option during sending, so you can still quickly cancel it out. Read More...

Prettier Banners – A Great App to Get Your Message Notifications to Add Contact Photos

BiteSMS was a very popular app but it no longer exists. Its popularity came from the fact that it added photographs of your contacts to your message notification.

FileBrowser, a great alternative to iFile

After many years, I still remember my first jailbreak experience with the iPod Touch 2G. The two first Cydia apps that I installed were Winterboard along with iFile which would allow me to change up a couple of settings on my device. Well, the old and infamous iFile has a bit of more competition right now, after the release of FileBrowser, a brand new Cydia app which can be found on the BigBoss repo, which is free of charge and offers some awesome features.

With this being said, the Cydia app allows iDevice users to easily go ahead and browse throughout the smallest files in their device, on the entire file system and also do a couple of cool things such as creating files, deleting folders, files while also allowing users to rename, copy, paste and edit.

Apple stops signing iOS 8.1

iOS 8.1 has finally come to an end as Apple has stopped signing the firmware. This means that if you’re running a version above iOS 8.1, you no longer have the chance to downgrade back to the older firmware.

Till a few weeks ago, iOS 8.1 was the only jailbreakable version as the Pangu jailbreak supported devices running iOS 8.0 – iOS 8.1. However, just a few days ago, TaiG released a new jailbreak tool that provides untether jailbreak for iOS 8.0, iOS 8.1 and iOS 8.1.1.

If you visit IPSW.me website, you’ll notice that a red warning sign appears next to iOS 8.1.1 IPSW files indicating that the firmware is no longer being signed by Apple. Read More...

Get a sleeker lock screen with SleekCode

While there are a couple of great Cydia tweaks which offer a variety of customizing options for the lock screen, but also widgets, I personally feel like there isn’t an app which stands out from all the points of view. However, an interesting Cydia tweak that actually has a lot of potential is known by the name of SleekCode.

Taig releases iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2 Beta Jailbreak

Apple released the iOS 8.1.1 firmware a few weeks ago that patches the exploits used in the Pangu jailbreak, thereby making iOS 8.1.1 un-jailbreakable. In an unexpected move today, the Taig team released the untether jailbreak tool for iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2 beta.

The Taig team has never developed any jailbreak software in the past and they were the ones behind the Chinese app store that appeared on iOS 7 devices jailbroken with evasi0n. So we don’t recommend that you jailbreak your iOS 8.1.1 device now until we hear an official confirmation from popular jailbreak developers. Read More...

STUCalendar adds the current date to Lock screen unlock slider

One of the main issues of iOS 8.1 is the WiFi problem which many users have been reporting. Although iOS 8.1.1 fixes this issue, it is not jailbreakable at the moment and the latest firmware that can be jailbroken is iOS 8.1. WiFried is a new Cydia tweak that promises to fix the WiFi performance issue on iOS 8 and 8.1

MorePredict displays more predicted words on iOS 8 keyboard

One of the major new features of iOS 8 is that it now displays word predictions above the keyboard allowing you to choose any as you type. However, some users wish that the keyboard displayed more word predictions rather than three.

Developed by PoomSmart, the Cydia tweak allows you to choose the number of word predictions that you want to be displayed on the keyboard rather than the default word count of three.
