    Default 'MultiBoot' Gives You Easy Booting Options From the Home Screen


    If you like getting back to the basics and keeping things clean and simple without using screen swipes, motion, or button gestures to perform boot actions, then a new free jailbreak tweak called MultiBoot by iOS developer Theo is available in Cydia today. MultiBoot gives you booting options right from your home screen with an elegant application icon and an elegant, easy-to-use interface.

    MultiBoot adds an application icon to the home screen that blends in with all your other applications, which when tapped, will prompt the user for a boot option of their choice. The prompt allows the user to select Safe Mode, Respring, Power Off, or Reboot as a power option, but the user can also tap on the Cancel button to exit the prompt interface if they accidentally tap on the application icon. The prompt is shown below:



    Perhaps what makes this tweak stand out is its lightweight simplicity. It isn’t weighed down by ads or unnecessary features that make it feel so complicated that you won’t want to use it. In fact, it's so lightweight that it actually feels robust.

    Other applications like Activator can do everything MultiBoot does already, but the tweak goes to show that things can be done in different ways besides the classic ways. It is simply the difference of opinion in whether you want to use gestures or tap on an application icon. Apple would never have you shaking your device or swiping across certain areas of the screen to power off or reboot. This tweak uses a more practical user interface in allowing the user to have quick boot options on their iOS device without using hardware buttons.

    MultiBoot has no options to configure.

    Version: 1.0

    I really like this one. I don't like installing things that do more than I'll ever need and I think the icon for this tweak looks great.

    The title made my very excited, and then very annoyed. I thought this might actually be a alternative bootloader for OS 10/iOS.

    I had powerup installed until I installed powerguard in order to have a password whenver someone tried to power down my iphone.

    This tweak would be even better if it had a password protection

    Everything you need in one place with SBSettings.

    I don't prefer SBSettings, nor do I have it installed.

    Too much functionality is included that I don't use and I feel like it just wastes space.

    First person I've met to feel this way.

    Heres the thing you do reviews on all these things but you can have all those options in one tweak with full customization fully themes and plenty of addons! Believe me sbsettings is all you need. I really love sbsettings.

    Youre entitled to you opinion though

    I completely agree with you.

    Just because a tweak shows up in the changes section of Cydia, it doesn't mean that there needs to be a review on it.

    I prefer NCSettings over SBsettings any day... SBSettings depends on Activator... hate anything that depends on activator, don't ask why.

    This tweak is not bad, light on battery... it does not run in background unless you launch it. This is the most value with it imo.
    Hit the thanks button if I helped in any way

    This is a whole lot better than the tweaks that modified the use of the sleep/wake button. Great job! I don't mind another icon
