  • First Third-Party iOS 5 Widget: UISettings


    With the ability for widgets in iOS 5, there has been a lot of buzz to whether developers will be able to create custom widgets and market them for the iOS software. Regardless of whether Apple restricts this capability from stock iOS, the jailbreak community has stepped it up a notch. The first widget for the Notifications Center, UISettings, is currently in alpha and on Cydia via an alternate repo.



    The creator, qwertyoruiop (@qwertyoruiop), which we had the opportunity of interviewing for Behind The Code, released this tweak not even a day after the redsn0w tethered jailbreak for iOS 5 was released. UISettings, in essence, incorporates SBSettings in a more interface flowing fashion. Due to the swipe gestures in iOS 5, it makes it difficult for SBSettings to be placed as an activator gesture. Some of the features that UISettings has currently are:
    • Brightness toggle
    • Power
    • Reboot
    • Respring
    • Volume

    Another added feature is having the ability to theme. This documentation gives you information on how to theme UISettings: Theme UISettings

    Although there are only basic features at this current time, qwertyoruiop is planning on releasing an update very soon. Follow him on Twitter for more information about upcoming work with UISettings.

      Heres a theme I put together using icons provided by users of macthemes.net as a contribution to the Serious SBSettings HD theme. I simply resized and repackaged the images.

      Any bets apple turns it's nose up and scoffs at this BRILLIANT widget/tweak. Jobs&Co. seem to have a nack for missing tricks like this. Such a good idea that hopefully would cut down the amount of memory sbsettings uses now.

      Download: Icon Pack


      You need to take the complete "Icons" folder and replace it with the old one. To do that u need to SSH into your phone and go to the following directory
      /Library/UISettings/

      So how do you change the settings of tetherme?

      Qwertyoruiop ended up deleting his repository - it is no longer available. PowerCenter is an alternative to this - download it from the following repository:
