If you like keeping track of your iOS 7 device's Wi-Fi network information and managing your Wi-Fi networks, then a new jailbreak tweak called Vestigo by iOS developer Pigi Galdi is something you need to check out today!
This tweak is a Wi-Fi management jailbreak tweak that can be accessed system-wide via Activator. You just assign the tweak an Activator action, and a Wi-Fi management interface will appear over whatever you might be in. It appears to graphically expand from the Wi-Fi icon in the Status Bar, which adds to the tweak's fluid and tasteful graphics and animations.
For example, Vestigo can give you all of the following information:
- Nearby Wi-Fi networks
- SSID and passwords for previously-joined Wi-Fi networks
- IP address
- Encryption method type
- Signal bar strength
- RSSI numeric information
- MAC address
- Wireless router vendor
- And much more
When viewing previously-joined Wi-Fi networks, you can see not only the name of those networks, but also the passwords used to join secured networks are shown underneath the SSIDs of those networks. You can tap and hold on any of these networks to copy the SSID and password to your clipboard to be pasted somewhere else. You can also delete any Wi-Fi networks from your device from here using the "Edit" button at the top right-hand corner of the interface.
Vestigo adds a preferences pane to your Settings application where you can configure an Activator action for opening the tweak's interface. We figured that since the tweak graphically appears to open from the Wi-Fi icon in the Status Bar, a Status Bar-based Activator action would fit the picture quite well, so we went with Double-tapping on the Status Bar to launch Vestigo:
Vestigo is not only convenient, but also handy. If you would like to give this tweak a try for your Wi-Fi networking needs, it's available in Cydia's ModMyi repository right now for the paid price of only $1.59. The tweak does require iOS 7 to be installed, and if you don't already have Activator installed, it will be installed along with Vestigo.
