  • 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 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.

    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:

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

      I have no idea why I never knew about biteSMS. This program is amazing and when the 5.0 official release is out, I'm definitely buying this!

      I think we should assume that the beta repo has been taken down because they are trying to launch the "official" v5 today. As stated above, v5 has been sent to BigBoss for hosting. I would recommend that we keep checking the BigBoss repo for the updated biteSMS.

      Oh ok I was hoping to try the free beta first before I buy it.

      I just searched in cydia and didn't find bitesms 5.0? Is there a certain source I need?

      disregard, found it

      http://www.bitesms.com/cydia/beta5.0 is now offline. Go search for bitesms instead because the real release is now being hosted on bigboss. You can install the real one with trial+ads instead of just the beta

      does no lockscreen work with android lock or iLock? I don't always need a lock screen (For example at work) but need it at school or somewhere else. And is there anyway to add the toggle to the springboard itself? Seems kind of pointless that a poteintial thief can turn it off in sbsettings and get around the passcode/andoidlock.

      I thought biteSMS is only 4.99? I'm getting the price of 8.99 to buy it...

      I thought the 4.99 was the version number not the price.
