  • What's New In Cydia: MarkRead, BiteSMS 5, NoLockScreen


    If you haven't done so already, check out our guides to jailbreak your iDevice! What are you waiting for? It's time to dig inside Cydia and see what's new this week, just be prepared for some slow updates, as Cydia has been extremely busy with traffic since Saturday's release of limera1n.

    If you're new to jailbreaking, check out our previous "What's New" articles, covering new apps and updates in Cydia.

    Mark Read
    CocoaNuts


    "Ever wake up with an inbox full of Facebook emails? Annoyed by newsletters you're not going to read anyway? Going through all of them just to get rid of the red badge just takes too much time. This is why we invented Mark Read, an easy way to mark either your entire inbox or just the emails you want as read/unread, right within Mail.app."

    I couldn't have said it better myself. This is a tweak I have been looking/hoping Apple would add but it is quite clear that they have no plans to add this in iOS 4.2, so the folks of CocoaNuts (chpwn, petrich, and stephen) have developed Mark Read. Simply tap 'Edit' in your mailbox, then select the emails you want to mark off as read or unread and tap 'Mark' in the upper left corner. If you want to mark the entire mailbox as read/unread, tap 'Mark All'. It's that simple! Why Apple has not done this blows my mind.

    Mark Read is available in Cydia for $1.99.

    If you enjoy Mark Read, check out other CocoaNuts tweaks like YourTube 2,YourTube HD and Safari Download Manager




    BiteSMS 5
    BiteSMS 5.0


    For those of you out there that have been using BiteSMS, you may have found that the current public release only semi-works on your iPhone 4. Well, here is the good news. There is a beta version available that works; you just need to add the repo to your sources.

    UPDATE: Now Officially Available in Cydia

    There are a bunch of cool features for the iPhone 4, including custom SMS tones per contact, flashing LED (i4), and auto-retry for sending SMS.

    BiteSMS is available for FREE!




    NoLockScreen
    Tom Zickel


    Not really much to say about this tweak. The name says it all. This tweak will disable your lockscreen (the slide to unlock part). It's a pretty cool idea and I'm getting use to not having my lockscreen. I could dig this.

    NoLockScreen is available in Cydia for FREE.



    More Updates in Cydia...

    Overboard
    Overboard is an …xpose-like App that allows you to view of all you pages quickly in one motion. Recently updated to version 1.2.3, Ryan has added a new wallpaper option, as well as hashed out a bug that was occuring with the Glaskart theme. OverBoard is available in Cydia for $1.00.

    InfiniBoard
    Chpwn, has recently updated Infiniboard to version 1.5.3.-1 fixing all compatibility issues with FolderEnhancer. Available in Cydia for $1.99

    Activator
    Mr. Petrich has updated Activator to version 1.4.6, correcting some minor bugs, including updated localizations.

    Activator is available in Cydia for FREE.




    Warnings for iOS 4.1 users:

    Background svn.r558-1
    WARNING: This version (svn.r558-1) is untested on iOS 4.1. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

      I'm really surprised people don't get the "NoLockScreen" app lol. It is exactly what you think it is! When you install it the lock screen goes away. You hit the lock button on top and the screen goes black like always... if you hit the lock button or the power button you see your home screen... not the slide to unlock screen. How hard is that to get?

      When The package description in Cydia is "disables the lock screen intelligently," I am lead to believe there is something special about the way it does this. What is so "intelligent" about this? How is it any different than setting auto-lock to never and using screendimmer (outside of the pricing factor)?

      No, you can keep using it on an earlier firmware, but from my understanding they are only going to be further developing the app for ios4.02+. If you like what you have, you dont have to update. If you want more in the future... I suggest an update.

      Anyone's battery draining quicker than usual after installing biteSMS 5.0 beta?

      Is there any reason to fear updating a paid for bitesms to the 5.0 beta? I've got a license, just don't want to flub it up if anything goes sour.

      For those of you that have tried rebooting the iPhone and refreshing the Cydia sources but still cannot download biteSMS because of error "Not Found," I think I may have the solution.

      When I first added the source, I added it as "http://bitesms.com/cydia/beta5.0"

      What I did to get it work was delete the source and add it as "http://www.bitesms.com/cydia/beta5.0"

      Apparently without the "www." you will be able to see the package, but you will not be able to download it.

      DO you have the repo installed, if not log on to Cydia, go to Manage, Sources, upper right tap "edit", on top left tap on "add" then type in http://www.bitesms.com/cydia/beta5.0 then tap "add source" now check for bitesms in search
