  • SBSettings 6.0 Released, iOS 6 Supported


    The evad3rs have announced that the evasi0n untethered iOS 6 jailbreak will be released on Monday, so what better way for developers to prepare than to get their jailbreak tweaks prepared for users to download? Highly popular toggle platform SBSettings has been updated to version 6.0 Sunday, adding complete compatibility with iOS 6.

    The main problem with SBSettings before this update that kept us from calling it iOS 6-compatible was that the Airplane Mode toggle, when tapped, would cause the SpringBoard to crash. With version 6.0 of SBSettings, the Airplane Mode toggle is no longer a dependency, so it’s no longer installed with SBSettings by default. The developer of the Airplane Mode SBSettings toggle will need to update his toggle before it can be used with iOS 6.

    Just like SBSettings 5, SBSettings 6 can be used via Activator (swipe Status Bar by default), or from Notification Center. Additional toggles can be downloaded from Cydia, however they’re not all compatible with iOS 6 at this point in time. SBSettings’ stock toggles include 3G, Bluetooth, Data, Location, and Wi-Fi. In addition to toggles, a Brightness slider button, and a Processes button are also made available. All of the stock toggles work just fine with iOS 6.

    When the jailbreak hits tomorrow, you can grab SBSettings 6 from the BigBoss repository for free.

      Now fixed for me on 5.1. Thanks for the quick action. I rely on this app a lot. It's one of the best.

      I dont know why the 3g toggle would not work though
      I have the same issue too.. Let's see if BigBoss will solve the issue.

      Has anyone heard yet when an LTE toggle will be released. I noticed that the only place I have a 3G toggle is on Auxo. Would like an LTE toggle for Sbsettings.

      Good question

      When a new device comes out with new hardware that jailbreak developers have never coded for before, it takes time and research to find out what makes it tick. LTE has just recently been cracked by a few developers.

      AssistantLove was updated with support for toggling LTE via Siri, and Auxo will be getting an LTE toggle shortly.

      Since it has been discovered, finally, SBSettings will probably get a toggle shortly too.

      SBSettings still has a pretty sizable RAM leak. I decided to move away from it all together until they get that fixed. But I agree that it also needs an LTE toggle.

      That will be nice and memory leak fix would also be wonderful

      Though I have to admit I have been getting used to surviving without it using the combination of:

      SBCenter (Respring, Reboot, etc)
      ncRam (live Ram readout)
      NCSettings (toggles)

      Springtomize 2 already allows you to turn off mobile substrates one by one.

      And WeeKillBackground allows you to kill background processes and apps in switcher.

      Now it's a testament to SBSettings that it takes five other tweaks to replace its full functionality, but I just can't bear with RAM leaks. And the first three I listed there tuck neatly into the top of your Notifications Center.

      What is your opinion of sizable?

      100 mb?
      200 mb?
      300 mb?

      Great question.. The weird thing about its leak is it gets larger over a longer period of time and with each new additional thing opened.

      The initial leak is verifiable at between 50-60MB.. Then you open other apps - read online.. do other activities. Kill all those processes with a combo of clearing out App Switcher and using a tool like SystemActivity to clear processes - and the leak has gotten larger - like to 250MB or more. With every new app you open - the leak gets bigger. As soon as you get rid of SBSettings it all goes away. No leaks of any kind. Only SBSettings and Auxo have had identifiable leaks so far per several threads I've watched and then personally tested and can confirm.

      I know what you're going to say, King.. .. with 1GB of RAM now and Apple's implementation of Dynamic RAM allocation - it just a 'non-issue'. I hear you. But my RAM has gotten as low at 121MB on the iPhone 5 before I got rid of SBSettings and I just don't want to have any tweaks loaded that can affect my phone to that level. Whether the phone 'still works fine' is, in this case, irrelevant to me.

      Ya that it very nice I don't see them taking to much longer to git a fix for it. Hope so at least.

      Yeah. Me too, 2K. SBSettings has been on my phone for a LOOONG time. I want it back mostly for the status bar RAM readout.

      I do not mean to hijack this - I have SBSettings quick question. I have it running on my 4S (6.1.2) and iPad2 (6.1). On the iPad I have a SSID toggle in SBSetting Options but I do not on the iPhone. All are up to date with Cydia changes. Any ideas?? Thanks
