    Default 'SafeLock' Keeps Your iOS Device Safe From Nosy People, Even When Substrate Fails

    If you use a third-party Lock Screen tweak for your iOS device and you want to ensure that your personal information is safe even when Cydia Substrate crashes and there's no jailbreak tweak to keep the nosy ones out, then you might want to try a new free jailbreak tweak called SafeLock by iOS developer Skylerk99.

    SafeLock actually has a really cool idea behind it. What it does is it will disable your passcode as long as Cydia Subsrate is active. Whenever Cydia Substrate crashes, the idea behind this tweak is that your passcode will become enabled again, offering you a backup passcode solution even when Cydia Substrate crashes and your jailbreak tweaks go bye-bye with it, such as Stride 2.

    With this in mind, your device will always be password-protected, even when Cydia Substrate crashes. And the best part is, since your passcode is disabled while Cydia Substrate is active, you can use your regular unlocking jailbreak tweak as usual.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand. You will also need to enable a passcode and set it to use it with this tweak.

    If you would like to give SafeLock a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    The feature of AndroidLock XT allows you to disable Passcode via Bypass passcode, however, AndroidLock XT does not work in Safe Mode, therefore passcode will be active, thus making the tweak (SafeLock) redundant. It's probably good with other tweaks that don't have bypass feature.

    Really, how hard is it to type in a 4 digit code or something...just change the option on how long before it asks for the code again....if you're using the phone a lot it won't ever ask for your passcode, but if you let it sit for a while, it will.
