Long Shadow Love iOS 7 theme now available

52f6b1067363c

Here’s something new. It may look quite familiar, but I’m here today to let you know that a brand new theme, Long Shadow Love, otherwise known as LSL, is now available for free on Cydia. While Long Shadow Love may look a lot like Zanilla and Solstice, the theme aims to be a higher-quality version of those themes. What’s better? The theme is shipping with both iPhone and iPad versions readily available. Read more after the break. (more…)

Use this tweak and you’ll never have to let anyone borrow your phone again

2014-02-07 15_06_47-VRxYeux.gif (361×640)It’s pretty easy to get selfish with your smartphone, especially if it’s brand new. When I first purchased my iPhone 5, I didn’t want to let anyone use it–ever.  It really is unfortunate that I didn’t have CCFakeLowBattery on hand at that time, though, cause I didn’t have much excuse not to let people give my shiny new phone a try.

How to make a GIF animated wallpaper for iPhone using AnimateAll

YouTube user StopLooking has uploaded a video that demonstrates how to make a GIF animated wallpaper for iPhone or iPod touch using a newer jailbreak tweak called AnimateAll. The process involves using a tool to access the iOS filesystem such as iExplorer or iFunBox, uploading the wallpapers and applying them with AnimateAll.

iOS 7 was introduced last September with support for parallax wallpapers, although Apple only includes a limited number of those on stock devices. If you give AnimateAll a spin, let us know how it works for you in the comments down under. Any good wallpaper recommendations?

GuestMode tweak adds a guest account to iOS

UntitledIf there’s any one feature that i’ve seen requested over and over agin since the early days of the iPhone–that Apple has yet to deliver on–it’s this one. Much like our Macs and PCs have a guest account for use by, well, guests, the iPhone should be able to provide access to certain apps (designated by the owner) without a passcode, right? We pass our phones around to play games, let other people use them to call their friends, and showcase our latest iPhoneography. Shouldn’t there be a way to let our friends and family have controlled access to our device? We’ve ben able to do this with different tweaks in the past, but now we can achieve it on iOS 7 by way of a new jailbreak weak called GuestMode. (more…)

Evasi0n updated to support iOS 7.0.5

iOS7-120

The latest version of iOS, 7.0.5, was released recently to “correct network provisioning for some iPhone 5s and 5c models sold in China” (Apple). While iPhone 5s and 5c users outside of China have no need to update past 7.0.4, the update was pushed to some iPhone models sold in other Pacific countries as well as Europe. Those who accidentally updated–or live in China and therefore need the update–can now jailbreak their devices, thanks to an Evasi0n update released today. (more…)

Question of the day: Should I jailbreak my iPad?

Question of the day: Should I jailbreak my iPad?

ipad airiFans forum member chaofan writes:

Hi guys, just a quick question. My iPad 1 runs faster than a speeding snail. Would it be better if I download Cydia tweaks (if so, which ones?) or if I wipe, restore and not jailbreak the iPad?

Good question. Jailbreaking in itself does not fundamentally slow down the speed of an iPad, and there are a number of useful tweaks available on Cydia for tracking things like free RAM and other system information. As such, my recommendation is definitely in favor of jailbreaking the device. I would definitely look into tweaks like Activator and SBSettings…  (more…)

Cydia: JellyLock7 for iPhone is a must-have Lock screen app launcher

Look no further than JellyLock, a popular iOS extension that was recently updated with iOS 7 and 64-bit support…  (more…)

Eclipse is system-wide night mode for iOS 7

163470One of the most actively requested iOS 7 features–which has yet to be implemented in any official form by Apple–is the addition of a system-wide “night mode” of sorts which would, hopefully, reduce the amount of blinding white used across system apps. While Apple has yet to deliver, such a feature recently materialized in the form of a jailbreak tweak, and it’s suitably called Eclipse. (more…)

Tutorial: This “Her” inspired iPhone made possible by iOS 7 jailbreak

UntitledIf you haven’t seen the movie “Her”, you need to get yourself to a movie theatre right now. It’s a fantastic science fiction love story that’s absolutely fascinating, mainly because it’s probably not going to be science fiction for much longer. But I don’t want to spoil it for you. If you have seen “Her”, though, you’ll probably appreciate this movie-inspired iPhone I stumbled on. It’s not just a Winterboard theme. Hit the break. (more…)
