  • 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

    "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!

    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 is an Éxpose-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.

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

    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!

      Awesome! Thanks for this. I'll be checking out BiteSMS right away! I've been waiting for different sms tones per contact since my Treo days! Glad to hear it works on the iPhone 4, I was having many problems and took it off a while ago.
      Thanks again for the updates!

      Change Mark Read to a single button that changes all of the unread messages in the current folder to read and drop it to 99¢ and you have a sale. If I have to select each message first, then I may as well use the up/down arrows to mark them as read.

      Looks like I may be dumping Tlert for bitesms beta here. I like the different tones option and sometimes Tlert is kinda buggy. Thanks for the heads up!

      Anyone found the led notification for bite SMS for the iphone4 in bite SMS settings. I don't see it anywhere. Sounds like if you get a message your led would strobe. I added the bite SMS source but unable to find that option in settings. If someone does please post where and how. Thanks.

      Anyone know if Activator will ever let us background cydia again or do anything while in cydia for that matter?

      I've had Overboard back when I had a 3G on 3.1.2. Now that there are folders, I don't have enough apps to make Overboard useful. Not a waste of money, though, because it was well worth it while I was on OS 3.1.2.

      Edit: Anyone else getting errors while trying to install biteSMS? Most likely all the new 4.1 jailbreakers flooding Cydia lol. Can't complain, I guess, because I'm one of them.

      It's free. After the 27th you will have ads. If you want to disable the ads then you can pay what it costs. If you don't want to pay then you will have to deal with ads.
