    This isn't how LTE works on an iPhone. When it's not being used it uses the other transmitter for 3G and the LTE one is not engaged. So there's no need to ever toggle that switch for battery saving reasons. I think that's why you don't see an LTE toggle in most of these tweaks - because the developers understand how the iPhone works.

    You sure? As I know, if u r in a "spotty" LTE coverage, iPhone will try to connect to LTE and thereby drain battery. Obviously if there's no LTE coverage at all, u r right, the phone is smart and will not use the LTE radio. And what about the 4G radio. At my house, I don't have LTE. It starts about a mile from my neighborhood when I hit main streets. That's when I turn on my LTE toggle. I use NCSettings which has a LTE toggle.

    My information comes from an engineer person who knows iOS and Apple hardware pretty well. I am NOT an engineer. But it makes sense to me. Also. The majority of us aren't on the cusp of an LTE / 4G switching area - I would imagine in the time frame it takes to do the search there could be some added battery drain. But when the signal is not found the LTE receiver is not actively draining your battery.

    There are some of us that want as much battery economy as possible - so I suppose a toggle could be useful. After all there IS a switch for it in the Settings.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

It's about as fast as EDGE. If I shut off LTE, it drops to 3G and I get four bars and it pulls data effectively and quickly.

    So I use NC Settings because it has an LTE toggle. If Auxo would add one, that would streamline my phone because I could ditch NC Settings.

    What 'Bars' tweak are you using?

    Auxo seems to crash for me when I am running Slacker. If I double tap the home button then I just get the apple icon and the phone reboots into safe mode. It's sort of random but likely to happen if you have slacker running and your on the springboard, but you want to invoke auxo to switch back to slacker.

    I'm not sure if it could be a combination of other tweaks too, like xCon for example, but the fact is the crash happens right at the moment Auxo should display (after double tapping home button).

    that's what it's called. Bars. More accurate signal bars.

    Search on Cydia. It's called Bars. It's free. Works on iOS 6.

    I remember that tweak, now. The 'depiction' tricks you into thinking your Signal is animated (another tweak idea I'd like to create!) but, instead, it's just a static image of current signal strength.

    Exactly I have 40 tweaks as well on my 4s.

    4S and 5 rarely have the same problems with a given tweak. The hardware is different.

    Another reason I don't see why people have a problem with Auxo.
