    Default Bypass User/Hacker/Developer Screen
    Long story short... I broke my screen, installed a cheap replacement, and now there is a dead spot on the screen specifically in the top area to press DONE (or Install, Modify, or Back).

    So I can't get past that screen... is there a preference file somewhere I can modify to tell my Cydia that I'm a User and to finish installing already?

    My endgame, until I get a new phone, is to be able to somehow control the screen to press that damn Done/Install button when I need to... I figured Veency and VNC or at least BTstack Mouse, will get me there. I already AutoInstalled both but neither will open and run until I get past that "who are you?" screen

    Thanks for any help.

    I don't think so.... If anything it would be in info.plist

    Yeah, I've scoured info.plist and there's nothing that appears to be there... only thing I can find is a Cydia metadata.plist that says amongst a bunch of nonsense... TRoleTUser ...

    Well, I can say that it will be under anything .plist

    Read this. I said anything with the ending .plist, I didn't say info.plist. 95% of the time it's in info.plist, the other 5% it'll be somewhere else.

    There are a few tweaks which remove the status bar, might this move your button up into a working part of the screen. If you can download the deb file you want to install, you could use iFile in landscape mode to install it.
    You could try SBRotator5, but this does not work with Cydia or the App Store
