BootSound, UIColors And Photo Booth (iOS 7) Are 3 Tweaks You Want To Download Right Now

You always want latest Cydia tweaks into your Apple device. So here are the top 3 Cydia tweaks which we think should be downloaded.

BootSound is a new Cydia tweak that will add the iconic Mac OS X boot-up sound to your iOS Device. There are literely no options associated with the tweak. You simply install it and then any respiring or reboot will cause the OS X start-up sound to play via the device’s speakers. It would be nice if the developer would extend the tweak to allow for a selection of bootsounds, add options for the volume of the sound and possible toggles for respring and reboot but maybe this will come in a future update.

UIColors is a great tweak for any Jailbroken device on iOS 7 and goes above and beyond the Eclipse Cydia tweak we told you guys about which enable night mode. What this tweak allows you to do is apply a system wide tint of your choice that is 100% customizable with color sliders. It works with most built-in apps, most App Store apps and all the major UI elements like Table Views, Keyboard, Control Center, Notification Center, navigation bars, grid views, tab Bars, toolbars, sliders, status bar etc.

Photo Booth (iOS7) developed by CoolStar brings a stable port of the iPad’s stock photo booth app to your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Upon installing the tweak you will find a new photo booth icon on your device’s homescreen which functions just like the one found on the iPad. This includes all the effects like:

  • X-Ray
  • Kaleidoscope
  • Light Tunnel
  • Thermal Camera
  • Mirror
  • Squeeze
  • Stretch
  • Twirl

He claims the tweak is 99% bug free and is legal due to the fact it pulls all the necessary files from Apple. You can download the tweak from the BigBoss repo for free.

How to safely Unlock your iPhone using Cydia

How to safely unlock your iPhone using Cydia

If your iPhone came locked to a specific carrier, and you want to use a different carrier, there are several ways to do so. Probably the safest way to do it is through official means, by contacting the new carrier (many carriers want you to switch, and will take care of the issue for you) or asking your current carrier to unlock the iPhone for you as you’ll need to travel abroad. Some carriers are more flexible than others in this regard. If this option is not on the table, you can also go through paid services online. These vary in terms of pricing and safety, with some sources being reliable, while others are anything but. If you go down this route, make sure you check feedback on the service, read posts on iPhone forums, and generally do your homework. You don’t want to risk losing money over a service that doesn’t work.

That being said, you can also take care of business yourself, and unlock your iPhone using Cydia. Cydia is essentially a third-party application that gives you access to apps that are not supported by Apple. Using Cydia expands beyond the advantages of unlocking your iPhone from certain carriers, as it also gives you access to apps and customization options previously unattainable. In order to use Cydia, you’ll need to have an iPhone that went through the jail-break process. If this is not the case, worry not! Most jail-break apps come with Cydia bundled up, so you don’t have to worry too much. A prime example of an easy to use jail-breaker with Cydia support is redsn0w. Regardless of your choice in this regard (there are too many programs to list, many of these are tailored to specific iPhone models), you’ll need to jail-break your iPhone before you can use Cydia and unlock your phone entirely.

Before attempting to unlock your iPhone through Cydia, make sure to back-up all your data. While this is not an exceptionally complicated process, things do sometimes go wrong, and it’s better to be safe than sorry. Another important aspect to consider when unlocking your iPhone is firmware. Don’t update to newer firmware versions until the unlocking process is completed, as you can run into various errors. Whatever happens, know that you can restore your phone to its previous state at any time, so there’s not a huge risk in unlocking an iPhone through Cydia. Once Cydia is installed, everything is backed-up and you’re ready to go, switch to your new carrier’s SIM card, turn the iPhone on, turn 3G off, switch to your local wireless network and launch Cydia.

In Cydia, go to the Manage section, tap Sources and then Edit, press Add and insert the URL (there are other alternatives to ultrasn0w, but we recommend using this as it’s a tested and safe method). Once that’s done, you’ll see the new URL in the Sources tab, under the Entered by User section. Tap it, and then tap on ultrasn0w to install it. Once it’s done installing, you’ll have to reboot your iPhone. This is the last step, as once the iPhone has booted up again, it should already recognize your new carrier. That’s it, you’re good to go! Easy, fast and completely free! You are now the owner of an iPhone, unlocked to any carrier, and you can continue to use Cydia to download any app that you might be interested in. Enjoy!

Sling Apps Up to Close Them in iOS 7 | Springshot Cydia Tweak Review


It’s a very cool application which helps to sling down to close any open application. Its available for free for Jailbreak devices.

Normally when you go into the iOS 7 App Switcher, you swipe up on the application preview cards for them to be closed. A new free jailbreak tweak called Springshot by iOS developer Adam Bell changes the way you close your App Switcher applications by taking some inspiration from WebOS.

With this tweak installed, you can swipe downwards on applications in the iOS 7 App Switcher, and they’ll appear to bounce right back into place before rocketing up towards the top of the display and then closing. The tweak is named what it is because the application preview card shoots up towards the top of the display like a slingshot, but the name plays off of the word “SpringBoard” with that in mind.

Springshot is a completely aesthetic tweak and doesn’t offer much functionality to iOS that isn’t already there, but if you’re into the idea of customization, then Springshot might be worth taking a look at.

Name: Springshot
Price: Free!
Repo: BigBoss

Top 5 Cydia Tweaks of February 2014

Top 5 Cydia Tweaks of February 2014: TimePasscode, Selfie, LockSafety & more…

Top 5 Cydia Tweaks of February 2014
Top 5 Cydia Tweaks of February 2014
  1. ‘Selfie’ is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Zogo that allows you to quickly snap a selfie by adding a ‘Selfie’ shortcut right on your homescreen. Once you install the tweak, all you have to do is to swipe up the dock to open Selfie. This will open up the front camera with a “Snap” button at the button of the screen which you can tap on to capture a selfie. Check out the tweak in action in our video below.
  2. BlueBoard is a recently released Cydia tweak that allows you to add a blue tinted keyboard to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device. As with most Cydia tweaks of this kind, BlueBoard doesn’t depend on WinterBoard or other Themes.

    Once you’ve installed BlueBoard, you can enable the tweak via the settings menu.

  3. StatusForecast is a new jailbreak tweak, free on ModMyi, that puts the current temperature and weather conditions neatly into your status bar.
    The formatting of the data is highly customizable, so you can change how the data is displayed at any time via the tweak’s settings panel in Settings. The default shows the name of your city (entered in the settings as a WOEID), the current time, the current temperature, and an icon showing the current weather conditions.
    In my experience, the tweak takes a while to respond to changes in the settings and also disables itself upon device respring. However, this is a 1.0.0 release, so I expect there to be lots of changes and improvements made in coming weeks.
  4. TimePasscode is an interesting new jailbreak tweak, and one that comes as the result of a recent Reddit request.
    TimePasscode is a new tweak from Stevie Hetelekides that sets your passcode to the current time of your device.
    So for example, if the time is 12:41, your passcode would be ‘1241’. You can also create a reverse passcode, so that 12:41 would be 1421.
    Hopefully more features and settings will be implemented down the road, as the tweak is open source.
  5. LockSafety is an iPhone Tweak which prevents powerdown screen from appearing on lockscreen. No screenshots for this item.

    After installing the tweak, you can be on the Lock Screen and hold down on the power button for as long as you want to, but the slide to power off option will never appear. When your iOS device gets stolen or lost, the last thing you want to worry about is a thief power off the iPhone off so you can’t track it through services such as Find My iPhone on iCloud. This tweak will prevent you from such thing to be happened. If you were to remove the tweak, the power down slider would appear on the Lock Screen again as usual.
