  • 'Inform Me' Will Tell You Nearly Anything and Everything About Your iOS Device

    It's a pretty good feeling to know everything about your iOS device important information about it, everything it's doing, and even everything that's on it. Some of this information can be found in Apple's Settings application, but a new jailbreak tweak called Inform Me by iOS developer sharedRoutine goes very in-depth and gives you more information than Apple wants to give you.

    The tweak, once installed, adds a preferences pane to the Settings application:

    In this preferences pane, which we're not going to show you because of all the sensitive information contained within, you'll find information such as:

    Identifying Information
    Model Number
    Serial Number
    MLB Serial Number
    Inverse Device ID
    DIE ID
    CPU Architecture
    User Device Name
    Bluetooth Information
    Bluetooth Address
    Battery Information
    Battery Percentage
    Is Charging?
    Is Cable Connected?
    Baseband Information

    Filesystem Information
    Free Space in /
    Free Space in /var
    Filesystem Owner
    Application Information
    Number of installed Apps
    Application List (when you press on an app you get: bundle id, path, version, usage of the app (size); you can swipe on an app to delete it)
    Memory Information
    Total Memory Installed
    Free Memory Available
    List of running Processes and their PID (you can kill a process if you want to)
    With all of the information that Inform Me gives you, if you're one of those tinkerers that likes knowing all or any of this information, we could certainly recommend the tweak to you. The developer is always adding more information as he sees it fit. Inform Me is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit iOS devices, and works with iOS 6 and later. If you want to download it and give it a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Note: there is a pause when scrolling through the preference pane as information is gathered. If your device seems to "freeze" for a few seconds as you are scrolling through the information, just be patient as the information populates.

    Name: Inform Me
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 6.0+
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: sharedRoutine

      Neat. It's nice knowing you have one, simple, central hub you can go to to find whatever you're looking for about your device.

      To answer this, I tested this on the 5S for the developer... I too questioned the "pause".

      It's down to the way the Data IP address is retrieved and an NSHost call.

      Might be worth Anthony Bouchard noting that in the info so that there isn't a barage of questions about the "pause" / "stutter"
