Jonas Gessner Updates Many of His Tweaks and Apps, Available and Upcoming
iOS developer Jonas Gessner has submitted updates for many of his jailbreak tweaks and applications. Some of the updates are live in Cydia right now, and some of them are still waiting to see the light and should be out soon as they go through the Cydia submission process. Check out what's new in these available and upcoming updates below:
1. ProTube 2 [Version 1.1] (Update Coming Soon)
ProTube 2, a popular extension for Googles YouTube application that features a built-in ad-blocker, download capabilities, and streaming quality options, had an update submitted to Cydia and is expected to be available soon.
The update will add full iPad support, include background audio playback, and show the current video quality in the select playback quality option. In addition, ProTube 2 has received some UI and animation improvements, has been optimized for iOS 6, and has received some minor fixes and stability improvements.
Open in ProTube has also been updated to version 1.1.1 with support for iOS 6, however this plugin is for the actual ProTube application, and not the ProTube 2 extension for Google's YouTube application.
2. Bridge [Version 1.1.2] (Update Coming Soon)
Bridge, a popular way to import media files to your music library without iTunes, has been updated to version 1.1.1. Version 1.1.2 is also on the way with some additional improvements.
Version 1.1.1 fixed numerous bugs, including:
Fixed broken AppStore downloads on iOS 6
Fixed rare double imports
Fixed songs/videos not importing at all
Fixed Album import
Fixed multiple selection in the file browser
Removed File System Image Picker
Other small fixes and improvements
The upcoming version 1.1.2 update will fix a crashing problem on older devices, add .m4r files (ringtones) to the supported audio files, improve error handling, and include several other minor bug fixes and improvements.
3. WeeSearch Pro [Version 1.3.1] (Available Now!)
WeeSearch Pro for Notification Center, which adds a search bar to notification center with support for multiple customizable search engines, has been updated to version 1.3.1.
The update optimizes the widget for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, fixes an issue that could cause crashing, and includes many minor bug fixes and improvements.
Backup for WeeSearch Pro has also been updated to version 1.1, which is available in Cydia right now, with optimization for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, and an updated database location to avoid crashing.
4. WeeKillBackground Pro [Version 1.3.4] (Available Now!)
WeeKillBackground Pro for Notification Center is a popular way to close out of all applications in the App Switcher with a tap of a button. It is a widget in Notification Center. The update to version 1.3.4 adds some bug fixes and stability improvements.
All updates are free for existing owners.

thanx for the update on weekillbackground (not pro).
I was finding that Auxo causes too much RAM leak and instability. I switched it off in SBSettings.
I'm back to the tride and true combo of: SBSettings, Winterboard, TetherMe, iFile, Unrestrictor, iCleaner, Terminal, BytaFont, Pandora Downloader... and some tweaks.

"Cydia submission process"? Who knew there was such a thing. Jay Freman always says Cydia is just a "browser"

I'm gonna be honest: i can't understand why the need for tweaks that kill backgrounded apps. Why would you do that? I only kill apps that crash. Perhaps people don't understand that iOS doesn't run backgrounded apps like Android does. Apps are suspended in memory and that's all they do. There are a number of functions that an app can use in the background like continuing to track GPS or completing the download of a file. But if that's happening it's because you want it to. It doesn't improve performance because suspended apps don't leech CPU cycles and it doesn't save battery life because whether the RAM is empty or not it's still using up electricity. That's how dynamic RAM works. So why? I overheard a "genius" at the Apple Store telling a customer to kill the apps in his switcher to improve performance. Why do they bother hiring fools like that? Most of the apps you see in your switcher represent only recently used apps, not suspended apps. When iOS needs the RAM it closes the App that's suspended and voila: you have all the RAM you need without constantly, and needlessly, killing apps. So... Anyone?
