Rather than slide your finger across the Lock Screen to unlock your iOS device, you now have the ability to shake to unlock your iOS device with a new jailbreak tweak for iOS 7 called UnShaker7 by iOS developer sharedRoutine.

With the tweak installed, you can shake your device and you will be brought to your Home Screen just as if you were to slide on the Lock Screen to unlock the device. The tweak also comes with a small number of settings so that you can choose when the tweak takes effect.

To access those settings, you will want to visit the tweak's preferences pane in the Settings application, as shown below:



From here, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand whenever you change this setting, you will need to respring the device so that your changes take effect, which is why a respring button is included in the preferences pane for you. You also have the option to override your passcode when you shake the device from the Lock Screen, and the ability to have the tweak only take effect when your device is connected to a power source.

If you have the override passcode option enabled, anyone that picks up your iOS device will still think you have to slide to unlock and will be asked to enter a passcode, so although it seems like a breech of security, the chances of someone actually knowing that they can shake your device to unlock it are slim to none. As for the tweak only working when you're connected to a power source, this is great for when you know your device is in a safe location and want to use the tweak only when you're close to it.

UnShaker7 is available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for 99 and is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads running iOS 7.0-7.0.6.
