  • Popular New 'Auxo' App Switcher Tweak Now Compatible With iOS 5 [Updated]


    Just last week we showed you Auxo, an amazing App Switcher jailbreak tweak that reinvents the multitasking interface, music interface, and adds a brand new toggle interface to the App Switcher. The tweak was based off of a concept that we showed you in October, but up to this point, only supported iOS 6 devices.

    Today, a version of Axuo (1.1-4) is now available that fully supports iOS 5. The credit for porting Auxo to iOS 5, which was necessary because of the major differences between iOS 5 and iOS 6, goes to iOS developer iKy1e.

    Auxo’s App Switcher shows previews of the applications, using a screenshot of your last activity in the application, with the icon for the application overlaying that preview. The result: A great-looking App Switcher. Users can also swipe left to reveal a redesigned iPod interface, which includes more information at your fingertips, and toggle interface, which provides all common iOS functions as toggles where the volume slider used to be:





    Auxo also includes the option to close out of all applications suspended in the device's memory by tapping and holding on an application – a prompt will then ask you if you want to close out of all applications or not. If an application is in use, such as the Music application while listening to music, Auxo will alert you that the application is in use and ask you if you're sure you want to exit the application.



    From the preferences pane, Auxo users will find a built-in user guide, as well as documentation for the tweak and options for moving the toggles in the order you would like them to appear in.

    Auxo will set you back just $1.99 to reserve your own copy from Cydia's BigBoss repository. The updated version supports iOS 5.1.1 or newer and an iPad version of Auxo will be coming out in early 2013. Auxo is iPhone 5-ready and when the iPhone 5 is finally jailbroken, Auxo will take full advantage of the iPhone 5's taller display.

    Note: Users are reporting incompatibility with the jailbreak tweak Shrink.

      Yeah, double press home button freezes the app and causes iOS crash on my 4S on 5.1.1. I thought it may be Activator or PowerCenter but, no help.

      Actually, it isn't only the double home press, it's also the swipe-up gesture through Zephyr. I read that Zephyr's supported so if this is the case, something's definitely wrong. In effect, since I can't actually use it yet, I've paid for the app in advance. I hope the Dev can take a look at what's going on. I can send logs if that'll help.

      It's been crashing my phone on
      double pressing the home button.

      I've got two other tweaks it seems to be having a fall out with:-

      Shrink
      Switcherland

      It's annoying when I've bought it but unless the issues are fixed its useless to me

      Shrink definitely causes issues with Auxo. I know that for sure.

      As others have said, "shrink" definitely does not play nice w/ Auxo.
      Disable Shrink in Mobile Substrate and try Auxo again...it worked for me after disabling Shrink.

      Shrink is known to be in conflict with several popular tweaks. I got rid of Shrink a long time ago since other apps do the same thing as Shrink and with no conflicts. The Dev for Auxo will most likely not make compatible with Shrink so don't hold your breath.

      Bought it for 5.1.1 earlier today, awesome! Now all we need is a DockColorize update from GBM to match the new dock size and we will be good to go!!

      Anyone know what would make the icons appear for a second or two but then disappear? I would really like this to work.

      I too have the crashing issue anytime I invoke the switcher by any means. It was working flawlessly for me since the day it was released for iOS5, up until later last night. I've disabled every other MobileSubstrate addon I have installed in troubleshooting efforts, but with no avail. Auxo -may- have some incompatibilities that we don't know about, but I can confirm that Auxo's crashing issue is -not- necessarily related to any MobileSubstrate tweaks. I haven't changed anything (not even package updates) on my iPhone 4S (5.1.1) since I installed Auxo and it worked up to this point. It has to be the supposed packaging issue or a bug with the iOS 5 support update. I'm sure it'll be addressed in an update soon. I already miss Auxo, but until then, back to MultiStorey.

      Ok well, if that's the case then this bug should be reported in your article! It would have been nice to know this incompatibility before I paid. That said, if it wasn't known until now, then at least update the article please alerting people of this. I'm not giving up Shrink for any tweak. If I wanted fat original icons then I wouldn't need a jailbreak. Sorry, but I'm pissed.

      You have wasted 2 whole dollars, no wonder you are so pissed.
      I would get your lawyers to demand your money back.

      There are several other tweaks that shrink icons - like Springtomize 2. I had to get rid of Shrink because it conflicted with several of my other tweaks. Just get rid of Shrink and use Springtomize which is way better.

      We did not know of the incompatibility as of this writing. Only the comments have brought it to our attention. You can send a bug report to the developer if you like and hopefully a future update will have your problem resolved.

      One thing we learn in the jailbreak community is that many third party tweaks by third party developers do not all work together and it is impossible to keep track of them all.

      Whatever, troll. I'm guessing that you've never paid for a tweak. You probably opt for the "free" versions out there on other repo's. At least I was doing the right thing even when I had a choice. It's not about the money...troll on.

      As far as the other tweaks, thanks, I will try it out. Sent a message to the developer, anyway.

      I don't have Shrink but I do have a lot of tweaks - I'm quite experienced on Tweaks and how they work so, I've tried removing the ones that I believe could cause conflict. None of my existing tweaks using double press home button also in Activator setting none is set still no luck! - it keeps re-springing when I press the home twice - after removing Auxo everything works. Please try to fix asap - I like the idea of Auxo!

      The only "free" tweaks I have are the ones that are free or where authors have asked me to Beta test - and I sometimes pay for them when they are released just to support the authors.

      Some of us try to actually support people rather than just moan all the time.
