Thread: 'BerryC8' is a Very Cool New Lock Screen App Launcher Tweak for iOS 8

    Default 'BerryC8' is a Very Cool New Lock Screen App Launcher Tweak for iOS 8


    BerryC8 is a brand-new application launcher jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Max Katzmann that has just hit the Cydia store for free.

    This tweak lets you add up to eight application shortcuts to your Lock Screen, although only four of them will be visible at one time. If you add more than four Lock Screen shortcuts, you'll have to swipe through the application list, which is shown above, to scroll over to your additional application shortcuts.

    When you want to launch an application that appears in the application shortcuts list, all you have to do is tap and drag the application icon over to the bottom of the display. When you do this, you'll see what appears to be one of the wavelengths from Siri, and when you let go of the application icon, a green bounding box will surround the application icon before the application is finally launched, as shown above.

    If you have a passcode, you will be asked to enter your passcode before the application is launched, so this is something to keep in mind.

    BerryC8 adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure the tweak's options to your liking:



    Your options include:

    • Enabling or disabling the tweak on demand
    • Respringing to save your changes
    • Selecting the applications that you want to set up shortcuts for
    • Enable or disable "auto-unlock" for when applications are dragged to the unlock region
    • Hiding or showing application icon badges on the Lock Screen
    • Configuring application icon opacity on the Lock Screen


    If you're interested in giving BerryC8 a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak is reported to work on iOS 7 and iOS 8, although we've only had the luxury of being able to test it on iOS 8 for sure.

    Name: BerryC8
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 7.0?-8.1.2
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1.2
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Max Katzmann
    Editor's Rating: / 4.5/5

    Works as advertised on my 6, 6+, and iPad Air 2... I'm hoping the developer comes up with alternative views/locations for the icons... maybe something more along the lines of the original JellyLock (which this is replacing for TouchID devices), or new altogether.

    I rather have an updated jellylock. I don't want to see a bunch of icons at the bottom of the LS. Jelly lock was a lot nicer in my opinion.

    Any brave soul can tell me if it works alongside GrabberApp8?

    Edit: it does!

    Digging this app! Works great on my 5

    I didn't really notice a change when 'Auto Unlock' was enabled, though. Does this truly only affect people with passcodes and/or touch ID?

    Works, but overlaps if you have it in the lower corner, or forecast page on and more than 4 apps set.

    Apparently he gave another developer (angelxwind) permission to update JL for iOS 8. She hasn't started on it yet, but it's coming.

    When using IntelliScreenX, Jelly lock takes to much space on the lock Screen, BerryC8 is absolutely perfect when it comes to that point, also the way it uses the fingerprint sensor is brilliant, I only wish that there was an option for more then 8 Apps for quick lunch.

    This tweak is honestly amazing when my touch ID actually wants to freaking work. Touch ID is extremely broken on my 5s and has been since day 1. After about a week I have to delete my finger print and hope that it wants to read them when I try to input them again.

    Not only that, we were PROMISED a jellylock update. This is more like LocklaunchApp 8 which i already have and is much easier to use than this.

    Thanks for the upgrade which lets us use up to 12 icons!!!
    The only problem I see is that on my iPhone 6 with the Touch ID this tweak works perfectly but on my iPad Air it still wants my passcode even with the auto unlock switch turned on, this bug needs to be fixed.
    It should work like the lock screen camera ( you can use it but when you close it with the home button the device locks up. ).
