Accessible and Useful Jailbreak Tweaks List for iOS 7
Hey fellow jailbreakers,
I have found a couple of new jailbreak tweaks that are accessible. 1. Calendar for Lockscreen is accessible. I hate the NC view of my calendar and this tweak allows you to display many different configurations on the lock screen that are completely visible by VO. I then added lockscreen Extender so that I am able to view these up coming calendar events as long as I need to without the lock screen timing out before I'm done. Calendar for Lockscreen is 2 bucks and lockscreen Extender is a dollar. I am also using a tweak called StatusForecast. This is accessible. It takes awhile to get the code entered into the tweak inside of the settings application, but once this is done, I am able to display the city, temperature and current condition, in a text format, that VO is able to announce simply by touching the clock in the status bar when the phone is opened. This functionality is not visible when in the lockscreen. One other note about this tweak, it only displays military time going forward with the clock in the status bar once you have this tweak enabled and for some of you this might be a dealbreaker, but I like knowing the current temp and weather condition, in text form, at a moments notice. This tweak is free and I have asked the Dev to consider adding wind direction and speed to this in addition; we will see what happens. I have also installed bootSound and like it very much. I have finally settled on SmartClose by Ryan Petrich; it does save battery life and extend the use of my device. I have been using it now for about 3 weeks and can say, since I am a power user of the I-Phone, that it works very well. Anyone else found anything interesting lately? Anything new? -Andrew-
Hey jail breakers. Is anyone else using the latest version of Activator, from Ryan Petrich's beta repo? I've just noticed a problem with it and wonder if anyone else can confirm it. Now, when I am in the screen where you select the event you want to assign to an action, VoiceOver no longer says "Selected" on the selected event. Using zoom, I can see that there is a check mark on the selected event, but VoiceOver says nothing. Anyone else?
Hello again my fellow jailbreakers:
The title says it all, and that is about all I can say, as ears on applevis are listening. My email address is Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org, please contact me to discuss this topic and what you know about it. Hoping for some positive information sharing to go on. Looking forward to speaking with anyone who has knowledge of the two items in the subject line. Thank you -Andrew-
Can you tell me in which repo I could find the smartclose tweak? cause
It is on Ryan Petrich's beta repo, rpetri.ch/repo/
Greetings fellow jail breakers. Has anyone else tried the new YouTube downloader tweak called InTube. It's supposed to add a Download button to videos in the official YouTube app, but I can't find the button. Has anyone had any luck with this?
Hi, I am trying to find a tweak which I hope someone can identify for me.
I heard about it recently but the person I heard about it from wasn't sure of the exact name.
Basically the tweak is supposed to be able to allow you to increase VoiceOvers speed beyond 100 percent, I have done some googling and searched twitter but without success.
Many thanks for any help.
Hi,,,, I'm new to jailbreaking. I have recently jailboken with IOS 7.11. IIIIIII have just purchased a couple of tweeks, Prodtube and Beekeyboard. However, aafter purchasing, I can't find any buttons to install the tweeks. I have sought sighted assistance, and still can't find any buttons. Can someone please give me some guidence what to do? thanks a lot for your help. btw, I find this thread incredibly useful.
To solve your problem, let me ask a few questions. Did you see a confirm button after purchasing on Cydia? If not, was there an unlabeled button right after the heading telling the tweak's name? if yes, that would be the install button, although usually it is clearly labeled and I do not understand why it would not be, it is a chance though. If you got through the installation on Cydia itself, then the issue might be the following: After it asked you to restart the springboard and you pressed on that, the device resprung, right? The tweak might be a settings one, which means that the button is in Settings after all the Apple's normal ones.
Another possibility in your case might be that the tweak appears as an icon on your home screen, in which case it is on the last page after all the icons you previous had.
If this doesn't help or if you are unsure of what something means or need clearer instructions, I am more than willing to help!
A new beta of iCleaner Pro, better optimized for iOS7.1X, is out. Due to it being beta, it can be installed free of charge without cracking anything! You can get it by adding this source to Cydia>
Hope you enjoy!
I discovered a cool tweak, called AppUpdateNotifyer. It integrates itself to Settings but also to Notification Center. What it does it it notifies you if updates are available in AppStore. You can customize the time of the checks, hourly, daily, or weekly.
This tweak is particularly useful to those who are tired of going to the Updates tab in AppStore only to discover it as empty, or who do not want to reduce their battery life by letting their device automatically update the software. The downside of automatic updates is that they work, but they also check for updates all the time in the background. Of course you can disable automatic updates permanently by removing the launch daemon daily.plist, but that's in another topic.
The tweak I mentioned is available from:
Hope you find it useful!
Thought I'd post it here anyway. The battery life of your device is greatly reduced if your time is set automatically. You can turn this off in Settings/General/Date and Time/Set Automatically.
In my discoveries, I've found out that by disabling the automatic set of your iDevice's time, the battery life can improve by up to 30 percent!
Are you tired of low Wi-Fi signals? Irritated because of the network being just out of range? This is when WiFiBooster is for you.
WiFiBooster is a tweak that removes the Wi-Fi signal limit set by Apple. Yes, Apple has limited the Wi-Fi signal of each and every iDevice. With this tweak installed, you can see and connect to all the Wi-Fi networks that your computer, or any Wi-Fi scanner, would see. Also, the chances are high that the signal level of previously seen networks will increase vastly.
There are no configurable options for this tweak, install, respring and enjoy!
WiFiBooster is available from:
Believe it or not, the tweaks you remove from Cydia do not get completely removed. The .plist file, the process of the tweak, still exists!
The fix is easy. Get the latest iCleaner Pro beta from repo.insanelyi.com, you'll notice the three tabs are clearly labeled. Go to advanced, preference files. There, you'll see a bunch of .plist files, and most probably also some the corresponding tweaks of which you do not even have anymore. The ones you have removed from Cydia but their files are still there, those you can safely delete. Leave alone all of those the tweaks of which you still have on your phone. The deletion is easy with VoiceOver; just get to Actions with the rotor, flick or move your finger to the file you want to delete and flick once down, it should say 'delete'. Double tap and it's gone.
Once you've cleared out all the files of packages you no longer have, reboot your device.
I read on Reddit that Seacomet uses Ryan Petrich's Actionmenu to use emoticones with fleksy enabler through Actionmenu's Favorites feature. Do you know how to do that? if I click favorites I can create them. Does that mean that I have to choose the icones I use most and put them there?
BetterWiFi7 is a better version of WiFiBooster, with the following features except the signal limit removal:
1. The exact strength of the signal, if enabled, instead of percentage.
2. Quick connection to known networks with a single doubletap within the WiFi settings screen.
And some more I haven't still figured out.
BetterWiFi7 can be downloaded from the same repo as WiFiBooster. Configure options from Settings.
Do you recommend any data monitoring tweak that reminds me when my data plan capacity is going out? Maybe an appstore app could do it, I don't know. I'm asking because I find that the iPhone statistics don't match with my real usage. Have ou noticed this?
Thanks for telling me where to get rate tweak for VoiceOver, can you tell me though how I use it? the speed slider won't go past 100 percent, and the tweak description doesn't help, many thanks.
Even though this is an iOS7 accessible tweak thred, most of the tweaks work for iOS8/8.1 also. That's the case with iCleaner Pro about which I told you earlier.
To get the new iCleaner Pro for iOS8/8.1, add the source
to your Cydia sources.
