'Crescent' Gives Siri the Power to Toggle Do Not Disturb Mode
For those irritated with Siri’s lack of the ability to toggle Do Not Disturb mode on an iOS device, there is a new jailbreak tweak worth looking into. The tweak is called Crescent
by iOS developer Evan Coleman
and concept creator Joshua Tucker
After installing this free jailbreak tweak, one only needs to say something like, “Turn on Do Not Disturb” and Siri will enable Do Not Disturb mode on your iOS device. A user can also say, “Turn off Do Not Disturb” to turn Do Not Disturb mode off when it’s enabled.
The tweak is intelligent enough to include a fail-safe as well. If a user says something like, “Turn off Do Not Disturb” when Do Not Disturb mode is already off, Siri will ask you if you want to enable Do Not Disturb. The same goes for asking "Turn on Do Not Disturb" when Do Not Disturb mode is already enabled – Siri will, in turn, ask if you want to disable it.
Another cool thing about Crescent is that it supports all 16 of Siri's languages. You can watch the developer's demo video below:

One thing the tweak is lacking is the ability to set timed Do Not Disturb sessions by saying something like, "Enable Do Not Disturb for 3 hours" to just enable the feature during a duration of time and then have the device automatically disable Do Not Disturb after that set period of time.
Crescent requires iOS 6 and a device that can run Siri. If you’re interested in grabbing it, you will find it for free in Cydia’s BigBoss repository.
