As of right now, there is still yet to be a Jailbreak for the iPhone 5. I, as many of you, want to tweak up our iPhone 5. Luckily we can somewhat do that with NoAppStatus via CydiaHacks and it requires no jailbreak! With NoAppStatus, you are able to take full advantage of your display by removing your Status Bar when in an app.
NoAppStatus has its limitations, but works with built-in web browser applications & web browsers. [ie. Tweetbot, Twitter, Chrome, & etc.]
For a full tutorial on how to use NoAppStatus, check out our video below.
How to activate NoAppStatus:
Open a web browser app or an app with a built-in web browser. We are using Tweetbot.
STEP 2 Visit CydiaHacks.com via app & select NoAppStatus. Since we are doing this via Tweebot, you can click on JBTech17’s Twitter page & click on the CydiaHacks link.
After selecting NoAppStatus via CydiaHacks, wait for 5 seconds and then click on the “Tap to remove the status bar from this app” button. Your status bar will now be removed.
**To bring back the Status Bar, you will simply need to fully close out the app**
Even though there is not a full compatible list of all the apps that work with NoAppStatus, we have tested it on a select few, and it worked great!
Let us know in the comments below which apps worked for you!

With the iPhone & iPod touch, I always wished they had the brightness slider in the Multitask Switcher like on the iPad, but unfortunately they don’t. Thanks to HASHBANG Productions, an iOS developer, we now have the option to enable our volume buttons not only for volume controls, but also brightness controls with BrightVol. View the full review of BrightVol down below.
We’ve seen many tweaks from popular dev, Greensnow, who is the developer of other known tweaks like iOS Life, Customize Facebook Pro & Slider Pro. Greensow has teamed up with iH4CK3v3ryTh1NG to for the team known as Extreme Dev-Team to bring you Customize Twitter Clients! This Cydia tweak allows you to animate & change various text colors of you favorite Twitter clients. At the moment, only Tweetbot, Twitterific, and Tweetlist are compatible with this tweak, but the Extreme Dev-Team is working hard on bringing future updates to support more Twitter clients. You can check out Customize Twitter Clients in the BigBoss repo for $2. Check out our video for a full hands-on review of Customize Twitter Clients.
