  • [Tip] StatusNotifier for Email, SMS, and Call Notifcation in the Status Bar


    About a year ago the original Taskbar Notifier was released for jailbroken phones. Unfortunately its development stopped at firmware 1.1.4 leaving us with out this neat little mod on firmware 2.x.

    No need to fear today zolee released Status Notifier today in our forums. With a simple install from Cydia (it went on on the MMi repo just a bit ago) you can add notifications for mail, SMS, and call notifications back on your status bar.

    You can find it in the Utilities section of Cydia under the name "StatusNotifier"

    Note: to use make sure you have Erica Utilities and Java Sqlite3 installed as well. They are both available on Cydia.

    Thanks zolee for bringing this to 2.x phones!

      Now only if the lock screen icons showed a badge count and when touched they open that certain app up, asking for the iPhones passcode, if you got one set, on the way, that would be awesome.

      The mail icon shows up all the time, even when I have no unread messages, is there a temp fix for this untill this issue is sorted in the next version?

      The Mail icon is showing all the time because you have a unread message either in your inbox or trash or somewhere in your mail account.

      I had the icon showing up with 0 new emails in my inbox i refreshed my trash and there were two(2) unread emails. I "read" them and PRESTO mail icon gone.

      Done and DONE

      Seriously? I keep all my mail (thousands of messages) in folders. Some get read, some don't. My inbox is empty though. So I should really "read" all of those messages? Ugh, I loved this app on 1.1.4

      You sir are a genius. In my opinion though the app should only look at the Inbox and the unread messages there. Can this be fixed for the next version OR is that a pref file I can edit?

      Can you post the code section that will let me change the "60 Second" default check to something longer?

      When I installed it from Cydia, it automatically downloaded Erica Utils, but not Java Sqlite. I had to install it seperately.

      it is likely, that the unread deleted message is showing. Unfortunately this is a side effect for my Exchange fix.

      The way i checked for unread messages in the first version was:
      "select sum(unread_count) from mailboxes where url like "%INBOX";

      But this one won't shot Exchange.

      Somebody who has Exchange account and could go to SSH and run the following command from:

      sqlite3 /var/mobile/Library/Mail/Envelope\ Index 'select * from mailboxes;'

      And please tell me what is the name for the Excjange INBOX, because the INBOX word is not in it for sure)

      Thanks in advance!

      Is it possible to release an exchange version and a normal version? I have gmail IMAP setup and I have the problem with always having "new" mail.

      Same problem here. Doesn't matter what order in the Winterboard stack. Whichever is higher, is whatever shows. Would love to have both, even if it means manually editing some stuff.

      It seems winterboard can handle only one LockBackground.html
      I have some ideas I will look into this when I have some extra time

      So is the problem only if you're using an exchange account? I'm on an exchange account and I'm having the deleted messages show as unread in the status bar.

      I guarantee there is no mail in any of my inboxes or trash and i'm still getting the icon.
      This is frustrating.

      This bug essentially makes the program worthless. I've uninstalled it (and Winterboard which it decided to self-install) until a fix comes out. Looking forward to the next version!

      k can someone please explain to me why when i installed this app, cydia installed like 4 other apps along with it? (including winterboard) does this app require all these others to function correctly? thanks

      Hi all,

      I installed Status Notifier, Erica's Utilities and SQLite v3 but I dont see any new mail icons anywhere except for the badge on the mail app.

      How do I get this thing to work???

      Thanks.

      I edited the program to refresh every 10 seconds instead of every 60. it makes much more sense that way. in fact, i may reduce it even further. if i remember correctly, TaskbarNotifier refreshed every couple of seconds.

      The program won't run until it's dependencies are installed, Cydia automates a process that you would otherwise have to do yourself.
