Recommended Posts

So I'm going to download and jailbreak my phone, any suggestions on most common apps to download to customize my phone?

I tried to load a PRL. Failed. Even with my advanced knowledge of the iOS filesystem.

Yes. Makes the phone on par with a S3 or Note 2 minus the super-large screen.

Cydia. Apple's Appstore black market. ;)

Too bad the load from the thousands of jailbreakers is bringing it to its knees right now. It should be working fine in 2-3 days.

 

Once it is up, these are the tweaks to download.

  1. Monocole- run any app in full screen.
  2. Auxo- amazing multitasking alternative. Must download.
  3. AnyLockApp- change the slide to open camera on the lockscreen to any app you want.
  4. Flux- changes screen warmth to match light in room. This is one of my favorites.
  5. iFile- browse iOS filesystem. My absolute favorite jailbreak app, bar none. You'll need this to flash PRLs (once someone or I figures out how to do it).
  6. SBSettings- access Settings app toggles from home screen or anywhere. Must download.
  7. Winterboard- this isn't compatible with iPhone 5 yet, but it allows you to theme your device. Must download.
  8. SwipeBack- simply swipe to the left on the screen to go back in a menu, rather then press the back button.
  9. Accellerate- make iOS animations faster.
  10. Activoice- Open Google Now (yes, Google Now) with a simple gesture, whether it be a shake of the device, or another gesture.

There's a lot more that I love, but those are my favorites.

 

EDIT: Wait one more!

 

BiteSMS- Alternative to the basic Messages App. Adds tons more features, including Quick Reply.

Yeah... it's been a long time coming so I guess I can understand why it's a bit sluggish. :P

Ok thanks guys...I've always been curious what the appeal is to JB.

Works great, the stock wheather app is broken but there is already a fix on the evaders site if you don't want to wait for them to fix it.

Mine works fine. Anyway, the fix will be incorporated into a update if the evasi0n 6.x untether package in Cydia. And the Apple Weather app is horrible anyway.

I know I could easily google this but I'm taking the lazy approach (for what it's worth I am on vacation right now). Is this JB tethered or untethered?

untethered.

 

I'm looking for what the perks of JB'ing are. Also, is there a way to restore all my apps like Titanium Backup for Android? I'd hate to redownload all of them.

Springtomize 2

 

/end list

 

Do you find that worth paying for? I might buy it.

Springtomize has replaced about 30 other tweaks I would normally have had to install just to set up my phone the way I want it. I still haven't even explored all of its options. I would suggest it 110%.

Okay. I'll get it soon. :tu:

FYI: the latest 6.1.3 build patches the exploit and breaks the jailbreak. Apparently there were two vulnerabilities and I think Apple is patching both of them... No idea why they didn't just ship one so the tool could be updated when that hole was patched.

 

Unfortunately any hole that allows jailbreaking is a hole that malware/virus writers might attempt to exploit, so I see this cat and mouse game continuing.

 

I still think Apple should have a program to self-sign code for your own phone, maybe a nominal fee or whatever to get the certificate, suitable for people who want to tinker and understand the risks.

I like the idea of a program for that kind of stuff, but Apple is so strict even with the Mac OS that any apps that don't abide by the Sandbox API are automatically rejected from the App Store now. MPlayerX stopped distributing by App Store as a result.

The Apple Developer Program allows you to do that. $99 a year, and you can sign your own code. There's even an HTML5 site that allows developers to install Cydia packages without a jailbreak.

I know, my app is available in the store right now (Storm Sim)

 

I mean for hobbyists - something cheaper and more oriented toward non-programmers.

I would love that... I don't want to spend $99. And I never will.

 

I have a tweak recommendation for everyone. Check out BatteryDoctorPro. Amazing app for lock screen toggles, battery control/conservation. It's free on BigBoss.

On par? I think it just decimates any other device on the market period.

 

... That's just me though. Jailbroke every apple product I ever bought since '08. :-)

Bit of bias there, don't you think?

 

It's definitely a great device. But I wouldn't go as far as saying it decimates every other device on the market.

 

Yeah, I jailbroke my first iPhone, on Cingular/AT&T. AppTapp, iLiberty. Installer.app. Back when Cydia was an alternate app store that no one used. Ah, those were the days.

    • Yeah VoLTE took forever on Airave 4s, but it's definitely working now. Supposedly it was enabled months ago, but not necessarily for existing devices (only new ones). I had to factory reset mine to get it back in the queue, but after 2.5 weeks it got it. My Magic Box with wired backhaul, on the other hand, got it only 3 days after a factory reset. It seems that a lot of femtos setup before VoLTE launched never got put back in the queue (particularly femtos using WiFi or Ethernet backhaul), hence the necessary factory reset. I'm not sure if an Airave 4 would offer substantial coverage improvement over the Pebble, other than having CDMA as a fallback. If you need to cover a larger area, you can use both actually. They should handoff to one another with VoLTE, just keep them sufficiently far apart to minimize interference. And you'll probably have to tell Sprint it's for use at a different address, but they won't actually check where it's deployed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Do it quickly.  My impression is T-Mobile really wants to move people to their network ASAP, even if it causes lots of pain. August 1 is rumored to be the end of Sprint retail.
    • I'm trying to switch over to the Airave 4 now that the've enable VoLTE on them. That should fix this problem. The only reason I got the Pebble over the AR4 is because VoLTE wasn't enable on it yet.
    • My router typically only gets rebooted for firmware updates or major functionality changes that I have implemented. Otherwise stays up for years.  Last time it was down is when Hurricane Ike remnants hit Ohio in 2008 and caused week long power outages, which killed local internet in a few days (I have two ISPs, UPSes, generator).  ISP's battery backups and generator use had improved considerably since that time. Making changes appears to be the greatest reason for router instability. So put internet connections on a UPS,  reboot after major changes, and otherwise enjoy.
    • It’s been a while since I’ve posted here since I’ve switched away from Sprint but I happened upon your thread while researching an upgrade to my Rural Internet Setup and I thought you might be able to help some   I currently have a MoFi 4500 with two 35ft long LMR400 cables going from inside my cabin up to two panel antennas on the roof https://imgur.com/a/NpOjzwM   It’s working ok but I think I’m missing out on a lot of bandwidth since bands 14 and 66 have been added to the area and I could get better signal with a modem mounted behind the antennas (eliminating a lot of line loss).   I’ve been looking at mounting a Telit LM960 or Quectel EM20 in a panel behind the antennas outside along with a Golden Orb compatible router powered by POE and adding another pair of antennas for 4x4 MIMO.   Since you’ve tested both the EM20 and the LM960, which do you prefer? It appears the LM960 actually has better CA combinations for AT&T’s network even though it’s theoretically not as high level of LTE technology category as the Quectel.   It appears to me most of the higher order carrier aggregation on the Quectel is with CBRS or LTE unlicensed which I don’t think I’ll ever see in this rural Edge of Cell area.   Also does it appear to you that having these installed outside would be a reliability issue? It gets really hot here in the summers with plenty of severe weather and it can be cold in Winters. The LM960 at least appears to have a pretty broad operating temperature range.   Any advice is appreciated, thanks!     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
