    I just did #6, I didn't think it would work either but it loooked like it did, my home button usually doesnt respond well. Maybe I'm just nuts, I'll give it a couple days or weeks before I notice it crapping out on me again...Good stuff though!

    I like the banners.

    The tapping the status bar to go to the top of a page annoys me. Which has nothing to do with the banners

    The banner dismiss is actually just notification center being pulled down a bit because the banner works like the tab that appears if there's no status bar.

    10/10. And I read #6 has been debunked by none other than idb. I've tested it. No go.

    When I saw the articles title, I Didn't expect much from it, but I was wrong! Didn't know about the banners, but am wondering if it's compatible with tweaks that affect the banners... I'll find out soon enough! I'll be giving the home button thing a go to, although my hopes aren't high for th one. I'll report back if I get any results!

    I have indeed looked into this and have corrected the button combination feature in function #6.

    Regardless of #6 being treated as a "placebo". That trick has my home button responding ridiculously good. It was not like that prior. ...whatever.

    I think you can use activator. Under tap status bar or whatever just select do nothing and then select your new task

    I swear that touching the status bar to scroll to the top has been a feature since iOS 2?!?! If you didn't know that then you should be shot for being an inadequate human...

    But that switch still needs to communicate with software and calibrate the software to react when that switch is opened or closed.
