  • Ten Wonderful iPhone 5-Compatible Jailbreak Tweaks We Love


    With the iPhone 5 having been finally jailbroken (here's how to do it), Cydia dwellers are being cautious not to install tweaks on it unless itís known that theyíre compatible to avoid conflicts and crashing. Here are some rather nice jailbreak tweaks that weíve confirmed work just fine on the iPhone 5. Additionally, you'll find a developing list, under these 10 jailbreak tweaks, containing other tweaks we know are iPhone 5-compatible.

    1. Auxo

    Auxo is a great app switcher replacement for the iPhone and iPod touch. iPad support is coming soon. The current version of Auxo runs fine on the iPhone 5 with no crashing. The tweak takes into account the iPhone 5ís taller display, and adjusts the screenshot sizes in the app switcher accordingly. Also, users donít have to scroll down to reveal the volume slider in the iPod controls on the iPhone 5. Auxo is $1.99 in the BigBoss repository.



    2. TetherMe

    TetherMe is my personal favorite solution for unauthorized tethering, as it unlocks a feature that is already built into iOS rather than adding a third-party interface. TetherMe is fully compatible with iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, and it can share blazing-fast LTE performance with any device that you pair to your iPhone 5ís connection via iOSí native tethering. TetherMe can be had for $4.99 in the BigBoss Repository.



    3. Barrel

    Barrel lets you change the animation of swiping through pages on your home screen. Barrel works fine with the iPhone 5, and with the extra row of icons on the taller, four-inch display. A couple of the animations are a little jittery, but most (almost all) of them work as expected. Barrel wonít cause any problems for you if you want to add these great animations to your iPhone 5! Barrel is $2.99 in the BigBoss repository.



    4. Zephyr

    Zephyr is also compatible with the iPhone 5, and all of its features work as expected. You can swipe up from the bottom of the display to reveal the App Switcher and close apps, as well as swipe from the sides of the screen to move between open applications. The Notification Center animation also works great on the iPhone 5. Zephyr is $4.99 in the BigBoss repository.



    5. OpenNotifier

    OpenNotifier also plays nice with the iPhone 5, and lets you assign status bar icons to applications so that when you receive notifications from them, youíll also get a status bar icon for that application. There are bundle(s) in Cydia that can extend the range of icons you can use in the status bar, so donít feel limited by the stock ones. OpenNotifier is free in the ModMyi repository. Additionally, the OpenNotifier Premium pack, which adds more icons to OpenNotifier, is compatible with the iPhone 5.



    6. SBSettings

    SBSettings will run great on the iPhone 5, as well. You can use any of the toggles of SBSettings from either the drop-down Activator-based interface, or the Notification Center-based interface. More toggles are also available in Cydia, but theyíre not all compatible with iOS 6 just yet. With SBSettings, you can also change your carrier name, disable certain tweaks, and much more. SBSettings is free in the BigBoss repository.



    7. Bars

    Bars is a tweak that will make the signal strength indicator for your cellular network more accurate. It plays nicely with the iPhone 5 and the LTE signal strength. Itís a nice little addition if you want to be just a little more precise than Apple wants you to be. Bars is free in the BigBoss repository.



    8. WinterBoard

    WinterBoard was just recently updated for both iOS 6 and the A6 CPU, so WinterBoard is fully compatible with the iPhone 5. Themes, on the other hand, vary in success, as not all of them have been updated to work on iOS 6 or the iPhone 5 just yet. The theme pictured above is Elite Pro HD. WinterBoard is available for free in the main Cydia repository.



    9. Bolt

    Bolt will replace the battery icon in your status bar with a bolt icon whenever your iPhone 5 is charging. When you unplug your iPhone 5, the bolt will disappear and the only thing you will see is the battery percentage. It helps remove that somewhat superfluous battery indicator, when the percentage already tells you the status of your battery. It looks cool too. Bolt is available for free in the BigBoss repository.



    10. iFile

    iFile supports the iPhone 5 as well, giving you all four inches of the display to browse your iPhone 5ís internal filesystem. All of the features work, including copying and pasting files, linking Dropbox and moving files back and forth, and also installing .deb packages! This tweak is a must have for the everyday iPhone tinkerer. iFile is available with an unlimited free trial in the BigBoss repository.

      Sorry Simon but I would understand if u need to ban me now for mentioning a less than perfect tweak. It was a good run fellas but I guess my account is about to be banned. Nashville sends u all it's love. HAYDEN PANETTIERE represent!!!

      And you haven't done the same to me with your lecturing tonight?
      That is called a back handed compliment I believe. Read your initial replies to me and then read how csglinux replied to me. You both said more or less the same thing but in his there was no agenda, no talking down, no back handed compliment, no generalizations about minorities and majorities. He said the issues he had and reported on what the devs themselves said.
      Agree to disagree, Simon. You're not willing to acknowledge any wrong. So when we can't come to agreement we just move on. I can't make you see it, bro. It's okay.
      And Anthony is not a leader of this forum. He is a writer.
      Semantics. Anthony is seen as a leader and leaders or not doesn't excuse the rude behavior trying to imply 'my' problem with Auxo was because of 'my' unstable tweaks.
      It is his job to report stories on new and wonderful things in the world of Apple and technology in general. I can point to bugs being in a few of those tweaks he put in his story, sbsettings causing safe mode, barrel having graphical glitches
      And yet you 'didn't' mention any of that until now. Interesting. Why wouldn't you mention them until now, Simon?
      (which are now fixed btw, I tweeted Aaron Ash, dev of barrel, with a video of said problem and he had it fixed the next day). Because something has bugs in it a reporter should not report on them?
      Of course he should report! - but he shouldn't 'defend' a tweak. He should have told people that the devs were working on fixes for reported problems and not made it seem like there were no reported problems. He should have said - "I'm not having issues - but I've heard others are and the devs acknowledge problems". Without saying that - it just seemed like he was a 'fanboy' of Auxo and wanted to defend it against naysayers. That was the issue all along. All I needed was an admission that Auxo, 'itself', was a problematic tweak for 'some' because of 'Auxo' ITSELF. That still hasn't been acknowledged. Not even by you when Cgslinux spoke up.

      Simon - you're seeing the main issue through the grid of "Grant, the pain in the azz" lens. I acknowledge that's a stigma "I" bring to conversations. That's MY lesson (again!) tonight. But please don't try to say there wasn't a "group think" happening here tonight with Auxo. My input was 'minimized' almost from the start - characterized as inconsequential. It was very uncomfortable for me. I'm not the only one who noticed - from the PMs I'm getting.

      But I realize I brought on 70% of the reaction I got. On that point Krima and Pinoy (and you) make a solid point. So let's just leave it at that. The readers of the thread will make their own judgements about whether Auxo is ready for prime time yet.

      I got down to under 200MB tonight for the first time. Weird. How does Pinoy get 750? I've never seen that on my 5.

      I have a Grammy too. Love her dearly.

      Seriously though check that great debate thread we talked in other day, I asked you about your Grammy there, no jokes, I really wanna know about it. That's a pretty big deal.

      I mean no disrespect but honestly I would love to see ur Grammy. I'm sure if I said I had a Fields Metal in mathematics to support the legitimacy of my post then it would make sense others might ask to see it. So will u show us ur Grammy Grant?

      By the way I do have a Fields Metal in Mathematics. But don't asked to see it because I just today sent it off to be polished and I'm not expecting it to return for another 2 weeks or so.

      Read my response to Simon in the Great Debate thread. VERY off topic here.

      I literally laughed out loud. Hold on, my popcorn is getting low!

      Just for the record, my Auxo experience is that I removed it because...

      I just didn't like it. It just didn't do it for me. Maybe it's great, maybe it's crap.

      Cause I know what I'm doing!

      Just kidding. In all seriousness though that's with a weather widget using GPS and "Auxo" as we'll as a dozen other packages. You can understand my perspective in not understanding how people are reporting memory leaks. My memory is as high as I've seen on these forums.

      You have an enchanted phone, Pinoy. . I would love to see your list of tweaks and see if I can duplicate your success.

      Peace.

      Lets hope this doesn't have a massive ram leak. Maybe this update will make it a prime time tweak.

      This is my ram without the new update just released for Auxo(the one with the ram leak). I'm running color keyboard, zephyr, folder enhancer, auxo, zeppelin, showcase, clock hide, iconoclasm, multiicon mover, bitesms and I'm running a full weather lockscreen and two touch base weather iwidgets.
