  • 'Piano Passcode' Lets You Play Piano Sequences to Unlock Your iOS Device


    Uniqueness is a word that we can use to describe a new jailbreak tweak called Piano Passcode by iOS developer Jonathan Winger Lang. This tweak allows you to unlock your iOS device by using a piano sequence; the only way to unlock the device will be to play the piano sequence that you set in the tweak's preferences, similarly to a passcode.

    This musical lock screen is pretty neat. After you’ve set the sequence you want to play for your passcode (default is 1234567), you will be able to play that sequence every time your device gets locked to unlock the device. Additionally, as you are playing the piano to unlock your iOS device, you can hear the piano as you play it, and as you tap on the individual keys, they will become shadowed to indicate that you are pressing them down, which is a nice aesthetic touch.



    From the tweak’s preferences pane, you will be able to enable and disable the tweak on demand, which may be necessary for times when you want to be able to get into your device easily, or just don’t want to play the piano. Under that, you will be able to change the piano sequence that you use to unlock your device, and under that you can enable secure mode.

    When choosing a sequence, you can only use the digits 1 through 7. This is because there are only 7 white keys. If you pick anything above 7, you may have issues unlocking your device, so when we say stick to digits 1 through 7, we mean it! The black keys on the keyboard are no usable, so you can't use them in your sequence. If you have a basic iOS passcode enabled, you will need to disable it before you begin using Piano Passcode.

    Notably, the tweak may not be compatible with all lock screen jailbreak tweaks. Users of lock screen-enhancing jailbreak tweaks should be wary of this. You will also need to un-mute your device’s ringer/silent switch in order to hear the piano playing, or else you will still be able to unlock your device, but you won’t hear the piano.

      Can you point me to it? I check this site daily, and never saw it. That's why I tipped them to it shortly after I got to see the demo...

      Before everyone jumps on the bandwagon and rolls off the couch, chair etc.. laughing, yes I was stupid! So with that being acknowledged I need help getting into my phone. When I set the passcode I wasn't thinking and put a 0 in the code. Now I can't get in. Is there a way I can get into my phone or am I screwed? Any help would really be great. I'm already having a problem with Itunes updating my apps and I just wanted to cheer myself up and really liked this app. Have a great day everyone!

      Boot up into safe mode ? Uninstall the tweak? That's my educated guess.

      If you've got SBSettings installed, Open it, Power, Safe mode.

      Reboot your phone and while its rebooting, hold the volume up button. That disables mobile substrate and allows you to go to Cydia and uninstall any tweaks. Then reboot your phone again and you got your jailbreak back. Reinstall the tweak and don't put a 0 in it. Lol maybe activate the backup pass code option.

      You'll have to delete then cache via ifile, or I believe the passcode will already be set and you'll be left with the same issue.
