Tweak to view 1x/3G/LTE strength at a glance?

Is there a jailbreak tweak that allows me to see the signal strength of 1x, 3G, and LTE in the upper deck? Similar to Android phones with SignalCheck installed...

yes download signal2... But that won't put it in that status bar it will just lay it all out on the table for u

I believe it's just an edit to an option, forgive because I don't know much more than that.

I've had it in dbm for months now, just wishing I could get each individual band to show, not just one.

I think a Nexus 5 is in the cards for me soon. Can't abandon Apple entirely, but honestly this site makes me want to run Android just for the LTE fun that can be had. 

I have seen very few Android phones other than Samsung that easily show you the LTE band UARFCN that is in use. I know it's easy to find on the Galaxy line of devices, but good luck with any other brand, it's a total crapshoot.  Some brands have field test/engineering mode, some don't. And the ones that do, don't show UARFCN.  NONE of the apps I've seen in the Play Store show you the LTE band.

But more power to ya if the Nexus shows you the UARFCN.  What use is it if it only shows you the Cell ID and dBm?  I want to know the exact UARFCN that is in use so I can tell which LTE frequency my phone is camping on.  That is a critical piece of information when trying to determine connection problems, and every model of iPhone across the board is guaranteed to give you the UARFCN in the field test.

This is the only benefit to an iPhone for how I use my device.  It sometimes makes me envious.  And then I remember an iPhone doesn't meet my 3,217 other needs as a wireless nerd.  But that is a great feature.  I also like how iOS shows the carrier width of the channel connected to.   :tu:

3,217 of them?? Please, go into further detail... I gotta know what I'm missing out on!! :angry:

OK, I may have exaggerated a little. I use an iPhone for work. So I do get all the Apple I desire.

I do know one thing he misses, and that's his Google Voice integration.

Oh cool yet another iPhone thread crapped on.

With Tapatalk, it can be easy to miss that you're in an Apple thread. My apologies.

I have my phone jailbroken and when I go in Cydia to get Signal 2, it keeps telling me "This product is not supported on your iOS version.". Can Someone Help me figure out how others are able to get this, but I am not? I have an iphone 5s running 7.0.4 (11B554a)

The problem he is having is when he goes to the Cydia page for the app, it comes up with that unsupported error. Along with that warning, it also does not let him hit "Install", it is only going to give him a "Recheck" button where the install button would normally be.
