    Default SBSettings
    I miss the ability to use SBSettings from the lock screen. I don't understand why we can't have an option to utilize SBSettings from the lock screen or not. It's useless to me as is. Can I install the older version that allowed me to do this? If so, where would I find the old version please?

    How hard is it to just slide to unlock, then slide the status bar?

    there is a little trick if it matters. if you use SBsettings and then leave it open and THEN lock it....it will stay on the lock screen to use when locked. so it will run on the lock screen....you just cant open it from the lock screen.....it has to be open already

    I appreciate your replies and suggestions but again, this is requiring more "clicks" on my end. Prior to the "upgrade" it was (1) home button, (2) slide to launch SBSettings. Now, it's (1) home button, (2) slide to unlock (3) slide to launch SBSettings. I use SBSettings MULTIPLE times throughout my day and it really became a lifesaver for me until now.

    Harder than NOT sliding to unlock.

    ? Read my post above; Less clicking or sliding to enable or disable phone, WiFi and BT. I'm CONSTANTLY turning them on/off throughout my day. Just makes it easier for me. Are there peeps that actually think it's easier to have to unlock the phone in order to use SBSettings?

    if you use it then just run it and lock. it will be there when you wake it and you can use it from the lockscreen. seriously try it.

    1. unlock your phone
    2. slide to open SBsettings
    3. lock your phone
    4. BAM!...when you wake it its right there. no extra slides needed.

    all you need to do is not close it once before you lock. THATS IT!!!!!

    Done. That's one "click" that I don't have an issue giving! How can I contact the dev? *EDIT: I found him through Cydia. I emailed him.

    yeah dude. for sure. this app is VERY open sourced and is always open for suggestions so it should get looked at. that work around has worked for me really well and im pretty sure its the best your gonna get right now. all you have to remember is not to close it before you lock and your fine.
