    Yes. There are other ways to hide newsstand. You don't even need to be jail broken. It's via passbook. Google it.

    This is a problem with the pirated version.
    I'll have you know I bought Flex from cydia. I payed my $4. I fixed it by reinstalling it then changing some code. Don't jump to conclusions.

    Guys can i use this to tweak the alarm so that when it goes off, i have to solve a math question in order to turn off the alarm?? Its not my idea... Theres an actual tweak that does that, its called mathAlarmPlus but it doesnt support ios 6 and i dont think the dev. Will upgrade it...

    Also: is it illegal to do so? Considering its not my idea ( btw im not planning on selling it or anything like that )

    I'm the other side of this. As a developer who has published a Cydia tweak and two App Store apps, I admire the developer who wrote this, but I will hate those kids who will feel like "total hackerz0rs" thanks to this tool (PS: I'm not saying you will do that! But there will be lots of script kiddies out there...).

    But that's probably just me.

    what a great app! i have to say i've always preferred all-in-one type apps when it comes to my tweaks, such as springtomize, etc...
    i've already bought and installed it, and downloaded some tweaks, and look forward to figuring out some on my own. i love the idea of being able to use Flex to replace the multitudes of separate tweaks i had previously used from Cydia

    i have one question tho on that line of thought. is there any advantage to using Flex, resource-wise, as opposed to having multiple tweaks installed from Cydia, other than the aesthetic of having them all in one place? as in will it be any easier on the phone's memory management, or does it basically take the same memory-toll? i only ask because if there's no real difference or advantage, i may save myself the hours of time figuring out how to replicate some of the more complicated ones

    I don't know about resource-wise but because it actually modifies the apps code instead of using a mobilesubstrate patch, it appears to me that enabled Flex tweaks seem
    to work even in safe mode.
    I would assume there is a resource benefit as well (I know nothing about coding so its likely i'm wrong) because I think that a mobilesubstrate tweak, like for example a tweak that removes the "Sponsored Apps" links in the Facebook app, would need to sit in the background and go "hey has Facebook started yet? no? how about now?" while as Flex is integrated into the apps code so the Facebook app would look at it's code and say something like "Okay this line of code says 'DisplaySponsoredAds' is set to False" without needing to have something in the background all the time to tell it that it should be false

    This is a great app, very easy to use as I mess around with it. I'm new to Flex and have no code experience but would like to learn more about it. I really just want to know how put "time until my alarm goes off" in the lockscreen either notification center or in itelliscreenx. Could this app do that if I got smart on it? OCD is kickin in. Any help would be great! Also, could I mess up my iPhone permanently with Flex or would Mobile Sub be a buffer from my lack of knowledge? I'm a trial and error type
