    Default [Review] NoCameraGrabber - Disable the iOS 5.1.1 Camera Grabber


    While many people have updated to iOS 5.1.1 due to the recently updated Absinthe jailbreak tool, not everyone has taken kindly to the new Camera Grabber functionality of iOS 5.1 and iOS 5.1.1. A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed NoCameraGrabber by iOS developer Hiraku is now available in Cydia and will disable the Camera Grabber from the lock screen. However, it does seem to have adverse side effects as made obvious by the screenshots above…

    Functionally, the tweak correctly disables your ability to use the Camera Grabber from the lock screen. This can be a good thing because the Camera Grabber, in contrast to the lock screen camera button of iOS 5.0.1 and iOS 5.0, can be easily used by mistake and launch the Camera application when you didn’t really mean to. Unfortunately, it seems to cause a conflict with the slide to unlock bar.

    The conflict hides the entire background of the slide to unlock bar, however leaves a goofy square outline around the slide to unlock bar. The problem seemed to be prevalent on more than one device that we tested it on, so it probably wasn’t a tweak conflict.

    NoCameraGrabber has no options to configure and is a simple install-and-use tweak that you will need to uninstall to disable. The tweak was created with good intentions of allowing users to disable a potentially disliked feature, however right now it needs some improvements on the graphical user interface. Functionally, the tweak could be feasibly enjoyed by those that don't look too close to details and just want to disable that pesky Camera Grabber.

    If you're unhappy with the Camera Grabber, it could be a better idea to simply install a free jailbreak tweak like Redire, which at least gives you the iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 camera button back instead of the iOS 5.1 and iOS 5.1.1 Camera Grabber. Redire also doesn't cause these adverse lock screen effects. If you’re unhappy with the end results, the good news is that it’s free and you won’t be out any money.

    Name: NoCameraGrabber
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 5.1+
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Hiraku
    Editor's Rating:  1/5

    Sources: Cydia

    Yep, No Lockscreen Camera is the way to go. I use it. Works great and doesn't mess up your lockscreen.

    No Lockscreen Camera ftw.

    The program written about in this article looks HORRIBLE. No Lockscreen Camera makes the button go away and restores the slider to its proper length.
    Hmm...

    Why get rid of something that is not only super useful, but also causes no inconvenience whatsoever by being there?

    This method doesn't work. I just did it. Even making the graphic 1x1 doesn't help because the gap where the icon was is still there when you switch out the pngs.. You don't need both, you just need No Lockscreen Camera.

    What's the name of the tweak that changes it back to the camera button again?

    Never mind, found it. Redire.

    Seriously? I made a little transparent image and put it in my theme and, poof, camera icon is gone. Took 3 minutes, including Photoshop. CameraGrabber@2x~iphone.png, 104x60@72, put it in Bundles>com.apple.springboard, respring, totally transparent.

    Why would you even review this POS when it leaves your lockscreen looking glitched?

    My exact thoughts.
