  • Popular Auxo App Switcher Tweak Updated to Version 1.2-1 With New Features


    Those of you that have been following the latest jailbreak trends know all about Auxo. Itís a very popular App Switcher solution that went from being a popular iOS concept to being a popular jailbreak tweak in a matter of months. The credit for designing the concept goes to Sentry_NC, and the credit for bringing the tweak to reality goes to J_W97 and JamieD360 for iOS 6 and iKy1e for iOS 5.

    Auxo version 1.2-1 has been released today and brings several new features to the already feature-rich App Switcher. One of the new features is the addition of some brand new toggles for the toggle interface in Auxo:



    The new toggles included with the update are Location Services, Flashlight, Vibration, and VPN. Also, not really a toggle, a Respring button has been added as a choice for the toggle interface. You can slide toggles in and out of the Auxo toggle interface and rearrange them similarly to how to slide apps and widgets in and out of Notification Center. Because of the additional toggles, Auxo makes three rows available instead of two to make room for any additional toggles you may want to enable.

    Also new in the update, if you donít use the music controls in the App Switcher that often, but you use the toggles page in the App Switcher a lot, you can now enable a new option that makes the toggle page the first page to the left of the App Switcher when you swipe left rather than the music controls:



    Another important new feature in Auxo 1.2-1 is the VIP applications option. The VIP applications option allows you to select applications that wonít be closed from the App Switcher when you close all applications running in the background. There is a preferences pane in Auxoís settings where you can select your VIP applications:



    Last but not least, one of the final major additions to Auxo is the Activator integration. If you have Activator installed, you will now find two new options that you can set Activator actions to:



    With these new options, you can quickly get to the Auxo music controls or Auxo toggle page using an Activator action of your choice. If you donít use Activator, donít worry! Auxo wonít force you install Activator as a dependency. You can still get to the music controls and toggle page simply by swiping left when you open the App Switcher.

    Auxo continues to impress us with todayís update. If you are an existing owner of Auxo, the update is free to you. If you have not yet purchased Auxo, you can grab it for only $1.99 in the BigBoss repository today. Auxo supports the iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.1.1 or iOS 6+, however iPad support is coming in the future.

      Still immediately crashing me back to safe mode whenever I use it. Dash doesn't. Multiflow doesn't.

      Only if you have iOS 5.1.1 blobs saved.

      Yes, it'd be redsn0w.

      Then it would have to stay on iOS 5.0.1 or go to iOS 6.0.1.

      But doesn't Cydia usually automatically add the saved blobs for future firmwares? If so, then he could retrieve his saved SHSH blobs from TinyUmbrella or redsn0w.

      That would mean he has his blobs saved. He said his aren't.

      Jj2345, check your Cydia page and see if you have iOS 5.1.1 blobs saved.

      I'm thinking he didn't realize they will always be automatically added from now on. Although its not guaranteed, they probably were saved w/out him knowing.

      You using Shrink? That is what is causing my issues. Once I disable Shrink in SBSettings it works fine. Grr. I dont like how these play together. The only Shrink alternative is Bigify, which works, but with way less customizability (cant change dock and springboard icon sizes independent of each other). Springtomize2 wont work either because it wont work well with infinidock...it crams all downsized icons to the middle of the dock. What a bummer.

      Dude, Shrink was the problem. I disabled it and auxo works perfectly. Since I'm back to running a 4x4 layout with 5 icons on the dock, I generally don't need shrink as much as I used to. I did like making the notification badges 150% size though. Thanks again.

      He probably has 5.1.1 installed by the factory ..hence why. This is the same issue I have can't restore back to 5.1.1 even thou cydia has my shsh saved.

      Does Dash actually close apps for you? It definitely does not for me. I made a quick demo with DisplayRecorder showing the behavior a few months back.

      Cydia ALWAYS saves newer blobs. You don't have to have ever been on the iOS for the blobs to get saved. For example I've never been on a phone with 6.0.1 and yet my 4S on 5.1.1 has 6.0.1 blobs already auto saved by Cydia. He can easily get to 5.1.1 from 5.0.1 with RedSn0w from all I've read.

      What??!! That's been driving me crazy; that pushing all the dock icons to middle. But I have had Infinidock and Springtomize together for ages and it was never a problem. The problem arose after an update to one or the other a few months back. I did get the icons in the dock to stretch to full wide again by changing something in Infinidock that I don't remember now. It's good to hear someone else had this problem. Drove me batty for weeks til I found the change in Infinidock. I'll go find again.. and report back.
