'LockSpring' Will Let You Respring Easily From the Lock Screen
There is one feature on jailbroken iOS devices that is crucial to have. This is respringing the device. It’s better than rebooting because it’s faster (it doesn’t replace a reboot in every circumstance) and it can sometimes solve a lot of issues. Unfortunately, not everyone uses clunky toggle applications and minimalists need a way to respring easily without installing such applications.
A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed LockSpring by iOS developer Smartvipere75 brings a respring button to the lock screen so that you can easily respring when you need to. Judging the appearance, it does look a little bit silly on the lock screen since the lock screen is designed to have a glassy appearance and the button brings an opaque figure to that glassy appearance. Functionally, however, the button works as advertised.
This switch in the Settings application will enable and disable the respring button and the lock screen switch so you don’t accidentally touch them when you don’t need to respring. When you disable the button and switch, they will not appear on the lock screen. Turning it on will display them again.
If you need an easy respring method, LockSpring works just fine. It’s free, so you can try it out and judge it for yourself!

I'm sorry, but it just looks stupid and always in the way.

This is a good thing to have, but on the very first try to use this it caused the phone to crash.
Then I found out the on/off button only turn off the re-spring button that 1 time, the it pops back on the next time you access the phone.

It looks pretty horrible. It's as if the devs kinda rushed it and didn't really think the placement through.
