    What is SBsettings
    SBsettings stands for SpringBoard Settings, created by iPodTouchMaster and Bigboss but now is in control of Bigboss. This nifty little app allows you to switch on/off settings that you would normally have to go to the settings and app to do. SBsettings is activated by swiping your finger across the Status Bar, then a pop down menu will slide down and show you the toggles and many other useful things. Heres a picture to show you what it is all about.

    SBsettings has many toggles to choose from, however in this case it has the Process, Brightness, Fast Notes, and Phone toggle. Just by clicking on them will turn that function off or on. You could also even theme SBsettings from hundreds to choose from on Cydia.

    5. In my case since I already have SBsettings it says "Modify". For those who don't have it yet it will say "Download" Press that and you'll go to a confirm page. Now click "Confirm" at the top right corner. After the downloading and unpacking process is complete press "Restart SpringBoard" at the bottom. After respringing you'll be on the homepage again.

    What are these options in SBsettings?
    In my case the picture has Process, Brightness, Fast Notes, and Phone for the toggles, you can have up to 8 toggles at a time. Now there is More, Refresh, Dock, Respring, and Power. Wondering what does are for?

    More
    Pressing this will redirect you to SBsettings Menu.

    Refresh
    When pressing this it will refresh the toggles so they become accurate again.

    Dock
    Pressing this will pop up SBsettings dock where you can choose what icons you want to save room on the SpringBoard itself.

    Respring
    This will restart the springboard so it can you can work with on a fresh start.

    Power
    Pressing this will pop up more options:
    -Reboot: It turns off your device and then turns it back on.
    -Power Off: It turns off your device.
    -Lock: It locks your device.
    -Safe Mode: It takes you to safemode.
    -Cancel: Takes you back to SpringBoard

    Wi-Fi IP Address
    It shows you what your IP address when connected to Wi-Fi

    Data IP Address
    This only applies to iPhone users. THis shows your IP address when connected to 3G or Edge.

    Storage
    This shows you how much memory is being used by the Root Portion and your /var Portion

    Available Memory
    It shows you how much RAM is not being used.

    Inside SBsettings Menu
    To Get to the menu you have to click the "More" button. After clicking that you will be go to a page like this:

    There are 4 default themes that are included when you download SBsettings, Default, HUD, Tech Shadows, and Tenuis Matte. You can add more themes by going into Cydia and downloading them or by SHH. Now where is a Blue >, clicking on that will give you a preview of what the theme looks like.

    Set Toggles
    This is where you get to choose the toggles you want to appear when you slide your finger across the status bar.

    The default one that comes with SBsettings are:

    Bluetooth: This is a on/off switch for bluetooth
    Wi-Fi: This is a on/off switch for Wi-Fi
    Processes: This shows you what is running, ability to quit them, and to free up RAM
    Brightness: A quick way to change the brightness level
    EDGE: Turns on/off EDGE for iPhone users
    3G: Turns on/off 3G for iPhone users
    Fast Notes: A little app where you can write notes basically anywhere on your device.
    Location: Turns on/off location services
    Phone: Puts your iPhone into airplane mode
    SSH: Turns SSH off/on
    Data: Turns off/on data so you can't use it

    Move Rows
    By pressing this you can choose what toggle is 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so on. You can have up to 8 toggles on at a time.

    Will add dock applications, hide icons, mobile substrats addons, extras and options, and app folders soon...

    nice guide.

    however, BigBoss and iPodtouchmaster wrote SBSettings. iPodtouchmaster no longer owns a share though; BigBoss is responsible for the product now.

    so i'm having an issue. i have sbsettings installed and the when i first installed it i was able to hold down the power button and have their full menu pop up of respring restart etc. well now that doesn't happen anymore. im not sure what changed and i have reinstalled it and it still does the classic 'slide to power off'

    i have noticed that if i double tab the status bar on the home screen it opens up the standard options menu, not sure if that changed or not

    any ideas?
