LiveClock is a classic free jailbreak tweak that was originally created by iOS developer and hacker Ryan Petrich and was handed down to Joshua Lee Tucker (not the former ModMyi writer – another Joshua Tucker), who was unable to update the software for the latest version of iOS due to a busy lifestyle.
Today, it appears that Ryan Petrich has continued the project – updating LiveClock for the untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak. The tweak is still free, but it must be downloaded from Ryan Petrich’s private repository. To add it, you can launch Cydia, tap on Manage, then tap on Sources, then tap on Edit, then finally tap on Add, and enter the following URL:
LiveClock for iOS 5.1.1, just like before, includes four extra WinterBoard themes – the ability to hide the second hand, the ability to disable the tweak, a darker colored clock, and finally a darker colored clock with no seconds. You will need WinterBoard installed to see these themes, however WinterBoard is not a required dependency to install LiveClock.
While LiveClock is the original work of art that brought the animated Clock application icon to iOS, another alternative was introduced to iOS 5 last month called Clockify. The application does the same thing, however it includes a widget for both the lock screen and for Notification Center and includes some customization options. If you own Clockify, you should stick with it, but if you don’t have either, LiveClock is a great way to get only the animated clock at a great price – free.
If you have really missed this amazing jailbreak tweak like I have, you can finally grab it for iOS 5. Get downloading!
