Easily Find Your iOS Device's IP Address With 'IPActivator'
If you do any SSHing into your iOS devices, then you know how important it is to know what your iOS devices’ IP addresses are. There are many ways to get your iOS device’s IP Address; however starting today, a really simple way to find it is with a new free jailbreak tweak called IPActivator
by iOS developer magn2o.
IPActivator integrates with Ryan Petrich’s Activator application, which allows you to perform all kinds of different gestures to perform different system actions. When you download IPAcitvator, you will be able to visit the preference pane for Activator and choose a gesture for IPActivator.
After performing the gesture you choose, a pop-up alert will appear showing you your current Wi-Fi IP Address, as shown above. You can use this IP Address for SSH, on top of many other things. After you've taken note of the IP Address, you can just tap "Ok" to close the pop-up alert.
Another popular free jailbreak tweak, SBSettings, can show you your IP Address too; however, if you have alternative toggle tweaks installed, such as Deck or Auxo, there’s really no reason to go out and install a rather large tweak like SBSettings just for the functionality of showing your Wi-Fi IP Address. So this tweak makes a great light alternative.
