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.

    • I was thinking that Dish could be in a pickle with limited low-band.  But forgot they will have n26. Dish needs to also push carriers to support that band as well. I know that is like 14x14.  With 5G, is that something that Dish will be fully able to utilize?
    • Update: Throughout my time in Ireland, I've been on 4G (LTE) via Global Roaming with no issues. Nothing from Sprint/TMo re upgrading service. Hopefully, no bad surprises on my next bill . . .   Installed new TMo SIM in my daughter's phone while here, and she's had no data whatsoever. I had received mixed responses from TMo folks prior to the trip as to whether that was possible.
    • Went up to Woodbury again and it looks like the Archdiocese and NW Spectrum LLC are hampering T-Mobile's ability to expand beyond 40MHz still. Unlike in NYC, Band 41 is still alive and well on Sprint in Orange County. I was seeing 20MHz of Band 41 on both Sprint and T-Mobile. n41 is still at 40MHz unfortunately with no sign of a second n41 carrier anywhere. 
    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
