In case you've missed out on the new jailbreak tweaks Cydia has seen, this recap will highlight the tweaks we've shown you this week. These are in no specific order.
1. LockInfo 5 – $7.99 (14-day FREE Trial)
, a popular jailbreak tweak for displaying information on your lock screen, has been completely re-written in version 5 for compatibility in iOS 6. With LockInfo, you can easily see all of your notifications on the lock screen. The tweak also puts Notification Center widgets on the lock screen and lets you manage RSS feeds on the lock screen. You can configure RSS feeds with Notification Center so you will receive notifications when new news comes out. LockInfo 5 is a free upgrade from the previous version of LockInfo, so existing owners can download the update at no cost. Highly recommended tweak for the iOS 6 jailbreak.
2. Flex – $3.99
is a new application that surfaced in Cydia this week that gives the user the ability to create his or her own modifications for his or her own iOS device. These modifications can then be applied or disabled at any time. Flex contains a Cloud feature so users can share their creations with one another at no cost. Flex does not require any programming knowledge, however knowledge of the internal workings of iOS his highly recommended, as to use the application you will have to deal with libraries, classes, and methods. Check this out if you’re a hardcore tinkerer, but modify your own device at your own risk.
3. %hook's law – FREE
is a little surprise from iOS hacker and developer chpwn that adds a bouncy, springy animation to iOS’s stock animations. The springiness is configurable from the Settings application. The tweak is named after Hooke’s Law of springs and it is a great tweak to have if you like customization.
4. FlagPaint Lite – FREE
is a free version of the popular FlagPaint
jailbreak tweak. FlagPaint Lite will allow you to make your notification banners appear in the same color as the application icon that is displayed on them. The tweak doesn’t come with any options to configure apart from enabling and disabling the tweak, as the full version of FlagPaint comes with multiple options to configure. If you like the idea of this small mod, check out FlagPaint Lite for free in the Cydia Store.
5. tsLock O – FREE
Oddly named tsLock O
is a new free jailbreak tweak that allows you to lock your device’s orientation in both portrait mode and landscape mode by using the orientation lock toggle from the multitasking App Switcher. Normally, you can only lock your device into portrait mode, but if you want to get around this annoying
restriction, tsLock O will let you do that.
6. TweetAmplius – FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak that will automatically expand Tweets and DMs in the stock Twitter application or the third-party Tweetbot application so that you can get around the annoying 140-character limit that restricts both fields. The tweak will display an ellipsis when you type beyond 104 characters, rather than display the number that you’ve gone over the limit by in negative red numbers. In addition, the tweak makes it so you can post the overly long Tweet or DM, as it will auto-expand your Tweet or DM using a text expansion service. The feature is automatic and requires no work on your part, and best of all, this tweak is free and it’s a must-have for Twitter users. The way that it seamlessly integrates into the applications is also great.
7. PhotoFilters – $1
brings the power of photograph filters right to your stock Photos application. You can now apply filters to your photographs right from your Camera Roll without the need to install third party App Store applications like Instagram or Snapseed. The tweak saves the filtered photograph and the original photograph. PhotoFilters also includes a blur feature that can be used to add depth of field to a photograph. At just one dollar, this is a pretty snazzy tweak for creative photography people.
8. Usage – FREE
allows you to check your current cellular usage with the invoking of an Activator action. Just invoke the Activator action that you choose, and the screen will load for a minute and then you’ll be sent a text message from your carrier telling you the amount of data you’ve used out of your current data plan, and the amount of messages you’ve sent out of your current messages plan. This tweak is great for people that don’t want to install and of the carriers’ horrible App Store applications, but still want to keep an eye on their cellular usage.
9. PowerActions – FREE
is a new free jailbreak tweak that allows you to set actions that will happen when the device is docked or plugged in. Automatically enabling Airplane Mode for you when you charge your device at night so you can have a night of peace and quiet with no notifications, or having the tweak play music for you automatically when you plug it into one of those fancy music-playing docking stations are two good uses for the tweak. PowerActions comes with several other options that you can configure.
10. TicTacToe for Dashboard X – FREE
TicTacToe for Dashboard X
is a simple free Dashboard X widget for playing Tic Tac Toe on your home screen when you have Dashboard X installed. Tic Tac Toe; it passes the time, need we say more?
