Velox, arguably one of the best jailbreak tweaks, is now available on Cydia for $1.99. This gallery shows what the tweak looks like on iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1. Post your own screenshots in the comments section.
The hotly-anticipated jailbreak tweak Velox is now available on Cydia, in the BigBoss repository, for $1.99. Velox adds context menus to native apps and certain third-party apps, greatly expanding the functionality of the home screen. Make sure to read our hands-on look at the tweak for further details.
The jailbreaking community has already discovered a few bugs here and there, but the developers of the tweak promise that updates will be made to resolve these issues. Nevertheless, this tweak is one of the best we’ve ever seen. If you grab a copy of Velox, let us know how it performs for you.
Well-known jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich, the curator of Activator and several other popular tweaks, has collaborated with graphic designer Sentry on an upcoming jailbreak tweak called Luna.
The tweak will enhance the functionality of the Do Not Disturb mode on iOS devices, by allowing users to enable the feature by making a simple swipe-down gesture from the lock screen or Notification Center.
Luna will also change the way that notifications are displayed when Do Not Disturb is enabled. To get a better idea of how the tweak will work, watch the two concept videos ahead. The tweak should appear on Cydia in the near future, and we’ll let you know when it drops. (more…)
After several months of anticipation, Jaku for iPad has been soft launched on Cydia. This new WinterBoard theme, the work of Canadian graphic designer William Szilveszter, is inspired by the extremely popular original Jaku theme for iPhone. With a pixel-perfect icon set and other meticulously-crafted iOS elements, including the dock and notification badges, Jaku for iPad customizes nearly every aspect of the user interface.
“With the release of the new Jaku for the Retina iPad, I wanted to touch base with everyone that is flying it on their iPad,” said Szilveszter. “Firstly, thanks for the immense support. I know a ton of you have been waiting for this day and have stuck with me for over a year (flying the original Jaku for the Retina iPhone). You guys made all this possible.”
It’s important to note, however, that Jaku for iPad isn’t nearly as fleshed out as its iPhone counterpart yet. The theme doesn’t skin the lock screen, and there are custom icons missing for a number of popular apps. Nevertheless, Szilveszter is fully committed to his product — as he was with Jaku for iPhone — and will be working hard to release updates with additional icons. If you have a particular icon that you would like to request, please post its Bundle ID and icon file name in the comments section. (more…)
MIUI is one of the most popular custom ROMs available for Android, redefining the look of the platform with an original user interface and improvements to over 200 software features. And while the iPhone is obviously incompatible with the software, several graphic designers have been working on porting the design of MIUI into an iOS theme. Last month it was Minimal MIUI, and now it’s iMIUI.
iMIUI is a MIUI V5 port on deviantART that promises to be better than the original concept on Android, or so its maker onehalfkiller claims. The theme remains a work-in-progress thus far, with the lock screen, clock widget, custom icons and Compass app redesign completed. All that remains is some work on the Phone dialer, and then iMIUI should appear on Cydia. We’ll let you know when it’s available. A video demo of MIUI V5 follows. (more…)
LSScrubbing is a new jailbreak tweak for iOS that adds audio scrubbing to the lock screen on iPhone and iPod touch. Simply put, scrubbing allows you to go backwards or forwards in a song manually.
It seems like Apple should have integrated this functionality natively a long time ago, but they didn’t, and LSScrubbing finally offers a solution. Unfortunately, that comes at a price. (more…)
One of the biggest draws to jailbreaking an iOS device is the ability to customize nearly every aspect of the platform, far outside the limitations of what Apple imposes. But, with so many Winterboard and Dreamboard themes available, it can become difficult to choose the perfect one for your device.
That’s where we come in. Ahead, we have compiled a roundup of several top iOS 6 themes from within the jailbreak scene. Where possible, we have also shared the necessary tweaks, mods or other Cydia packages that you will need for installation. Grab your iOS device and join us ahead. (more…)
Inspired by the popular Jaku theme for iOS devices, graphic designer Richard Fayad (subywrex) has been working hard on a new custom icon set called Sublimity for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The icon set, which should appear on Cydia in the coming days, will include a base 50 customized icons and automatic app icons for other third-party apps. Fayad then plans on making biweekly or monthly updates to expand the icon set.
Sublimity will be available for all devices running iOS 6 or later, including those without Retina displays. Fayad had originally planned on having the icon set go live on Cydia at some point this weekend, but he is busy polishing off a few more icons and doing iPad testing. In the meantime, the designer has already released an iPhone wallpaper pack that will match well with this icon set. Sublimity will cost $2.00 on the Cydia Store.
Prime is a new jailbreak tweak for iPhone that makes the recent calls list in the Phone app easier to navigate at quick glance. While missed calls show up as red, there is traditionally no way to visually distinguish between outgoing and incoming calls in the list. That’s where Prime comes in, a simple solution that labels outgoing calls green and incoming calls blue. Prime, developed by thekirbylover and rv1raj is a free download on Cydia from the ModMyi repository and requires iOS 6 or later. Let us know how it works for you.
While there are a handful of extremely popular jailbreak tweaks, such as Auxo and soon-to-be-released Velox, there are also several others that go under the radar. This week, two lesser-known tweaks in “FBPrivacy” and “NikeNotification+” make their debut on Cydia. FBPrivacy, developed by iFans forum member omokas, has a number of useful options that allow you to enhance your Facebook privacy settings on iPhone. NikeNotification+ by Skram, simply put, adds a Nike+ widget to Notification Center. Learn more about both ahead. (more…)
