The Way To Prevent From Adding Duplicate Songs To iOS 9 Apple Music Playlists

New Cydia release called Dejavu prevents from adding duplicate songs to Apple Music playlists in iOS 9. Sometimes you can accidently add the same song to a playlist more than once, which means you’ll have duplicate songs in the same playlist. Apple doesn't offer the way to keep you from listening to duplicates. But with Dejavu tweak you can easily fix this problem. Let's find out how this new tweak works.

How To Prevent From Adding Duplicate Songs To Apple Music Playlists


When adding songs to a playlist Dejavu will grey out songs that have already been added. It will also display a warning if you try to add one of those songs. It also applies to the ‘Now Playing’ and ‘All Songs’ views where pressing the 3 dots next to a song lets you add it to a playlist.

So to prevent from adding duplicate songs to Apple Music playlists in iOS 9 you should download Dejavu tweak on your jailbroken device. So head to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and grab the tweak for $1.00. Note that this tweak is intended to work on iOS 9 devices only.

Once the Dejavu is installed it will add a preferences pane to the Settings app. Hre you can where you can turn on/off the tweak on demand, as well as configure whether or not duplicate songs are grayed out and whether or not the tweak will prevent you from adding duplicate songs to your playlist(s). When you're done with configurations tap on the respring button at the top right of the preferences pane for all your changes take place.


Now the next time you will attempt to add a song that’s grayed out, the tweak will show a “Song Already Added” waining to let you know that the song already exists in the playlist you’re trying to add it to.

Dejavu is really great tweak as it prevents you from adding the same song to playlist in iOS 9 and in this way fixes annoying problem with duplicates. No longer will you have to guess if a song is already on a playlist, and end up with multiple duplicates. So if you hate listening to the same song from your playlist twice then you should definitely install this tweak.

iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Release Date Stays Unknown

While there’s still no public iOS 10.2 jailbreak release date, there have been some very convincing demos of personal jailbreaks for it, most of which have come out of the woodwork from none other than well-known iOS hacker Luca Todesco. He warns all the jailbreakers with iOS 10 device to stuck on iOS 10.1.1 and stay away from updating to iOS 10.2 when it comes out if they want to jailbreak their devices.

Is iOS 10.2 jailbroken ?


Although Apple has fixed many exploits with the releae of the latest iOS version Luca Todesco is one of those hackers who managed to jailbreak iOS 10 iPhone. Just few weeks back he posted a proof of his own iPhone 7 jailbroken on iOS 10.1.1. As with all his jailbreak introductions that tool wasn't released to public.

Todesco has been sharing a slew of tweets that seem to suggest iOS 10.2 has plugged up a ton of exploitable bugs in the mobile operating system. iOS 10.2 is currently in its sixth beta as of this writing, which means the public release is imminent in the very near future. Apple could be preparing for a public release before 2017. 

Todesco ensures that recent iOS betas are more secure than current public releases because they include relentless security updates that aren’t leaving much left for hackers to break into. 


The question if it be possible to jailbreak tool for iOS 10.2 iPhone stays open. At this point of time none of prominent jailbrek team such as Pangu or TaiG haven't drop any public announcements. This means that as iOS 10.2 patches a ton more exploitable bugs means iOS is simply getting harder and harder to crack.

As iOS 10.2 jailbreak release date stays unknown you should confirm Todesco’s advice and stay on iOS 10.1.1, in case you ever want to liberate your iDevice again.

New Cydia Tweak Keeps A Subtle Hint For Passcode On iOS 9 Lock Screen

New jailbreak tweak called SmallHint keeps a subtle hint for passcode on iOS 9 Lock screen. If you frequently forget your passcode on iPhone or iPad you will find this tweak really useful as it allows you to put an inconspicuous hint on your Lock screen, just below the date, that can help jog your memory in the event that you forget your passcode.

How To Put An Inconspicuous Hint On Lock screen To Remember Passcode


Except simple 4 or 6-digit passcode, iOS allows you to have significantly longer passcodes or even alphanumeric passwords to unlock your iOS device. So sometimes it can be real challenge to remember it. So to simplify this task you need to head to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download SmallHint tweak for free. Once it is installed on your jailbroken iOS 9 device, you can visit the SmallHint preferences pane in the Settings app and configure the tweak:

What is really strange is that that there’s no indicator for the RGB sliders that shows you what color you’re picking. So you have to lock and unlock your iPhone repeatedly while playing with the sliders until you see a color you want.

SmallHint has the potential to reduce the security of your device. So if you take care about your personal info then don’t put any obvious hints on your Lock screen. If you intend to use the tweak, use a hint that’s just subtle enough for only you to understand.

So if you have hard times to remember your passcode, SmallHint tweak will help you to remember it by keeping a subtle hint for passcode on iOS 9 Lock screen.

How To Delete Or Hide Apps With A 3D Touch In iOS 9

Free new Cydia release dubbed as Force Delete is allows you to delete or hide apps with a 3D Touch in iOS 9. iOS 10 has made clearing apps from your device a real problem. Before iOS 10 public release developers had the option of adding 3D Touch features to their apps and hackers were trying to implement this feature in jailbreak tweaks. But in iOS 10 every app installed on your device has 3D Touch sharing option. This is great but it has one disadvantage. It can be annoying when you're trying to simply delete and app form your iPhone, and instead the 3D Touch menu keeps popping up. Force Delete tweak solves this problem by letting you delete or hide apps with a 3D Touch in iOS 9. So here is how the tweak actually works.

How To Delete Or Hide Apps With A 3D Touch On iOS 9 iPhone


To begin with you should download Force Delete tweak Cydia’s BigBoss repository. The tweak is available as a free download package. Once it is installed, head over to the tweak's preferences pane to set you changes.


Once done you can use a 3D Touch feature on any app on your iPhone's Home screen to reveal one of the new menu options. You’ll see “Delete this app” option if it’s an App Store app. If you’re using a 3D Touch gesture on a system app, such as manually installed from Cydia or an app pre-installed by Apple you will see the following “Hide this app” option.


However Force Delete is designed for 3D Touch devices, you don’t necessarily need a 3D Touch display to use it. So if you have older iOS 9 iPhone without 3D touch feature but jailbroken you can easily use Force Delete with the revealMenu tweak installed, simulates 3D Touch gestures.

The tweak puts an app launcher on your iPhone’s Lock screen that can support up to six of your favorite apps, and what is really great, it is possible to customize the appearance of the launcher too. Here is how everything works.

How To Launch Apps From The Lock Screen In iOS 9

After the tweak is installed, you can head right over to the Settings app where you’ll find a preferences pane for LockLaunchApp. There you’ll find a toggle switch to enable or disable the tweak on the demand, as well as six app slots that you can configure with your six favorite apps.


Here you can also choose your favorite launch animation for when you open an app from the Lock screen. You can have your app launcher shake, pulse, and more when launching apps. What is more LockLaunchApp supports special effects, which include a vibration effect, having rounded app icons, and setting a custom app icon transparency.

Once you’re done with your settings, you can click on the blue Save Changes button and it resprings your device so all the changes will take place.

Now the next time you will launch an app from your Lock screen, all you have to do is click on the appropriate app after waking your iPhone. If you set an animation, you’ll see it repeat itself twice right before the app launches. If there a passcode on your device, then you should to authenticate yourself first either by entering it or using Touch ID.

If you have jailbroken iPhone you can modify the Calculator app color scheme in iOS 9 using new Cydia release. The Calculator app on the iPhone has always had the same orange color scheme, but jailbreak tweak called ColorCalculator changes it make it possible to apply any color you’d like. Here is the short review on how ColorCalculator works.

How To Modify The Calculator App Color Scheme In iOS 9

 
With a number of pre-set colors to choose from, ColorCalculator is easy to use. So in order to get the ability to modify the Calculator app color scheme in iOS 9 first head to Cydia and download ColorCalculator tweak for free. 

Once the tweak is installed on your jailboken iOS 9 device, you can go straight to ColorCalculator preferences pane in Settings, where you can start playing around with its color configuration options. There are 9 different colors you can choose from.
 

When you’re done making your color selection, simply click on the blue Apply Changes button in the tweak's preferences pane. This will not respring your iPhone and apply the changes immediately.
 

What is great is that the tweak not only works in portrait mode, but landscape as well, as you can see from the screenshot above.

The only minus is that there isn’t a color picker interface built into the preferences pane like a lot of other color selection tweaks, so you are limited to the colors you can choose from.

For most, this isn’t a problem, as most of the major colors are listed, but others might not be able to get certain colors in between the ones available if they’re using this tweak in tandem with some sort of theme, which might throw things off in terms of aesthetics.

So if you frequently do some math on Calculator app and get bored with the default color ColorCalculator tweak is the good way to change the color scheme and make the app look different.

How To Enable iOS 10 Style Notification Banners On iOS 9 iPhone

If you have jailbroken device and impressed by new features and interface changes that Apple has brought with the latest version of iOS then you can enable iOS 10 style notification banners on iOS 9 iPhone with the new Cydia release. Called Notifications10 this new jailbreak tweak help to bring some of the iOS 10 look and feel to your jailbroken iPhone. Here is the short review on how Notifications10 tweak works.

How To Enable iOS 10 Style Notification Banners In iOS 9


To get started head to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download Notifications10 tweak for just $0.99. Note that the tweak is developed for larger displays, so it is recommended not to use it on the iPhone 5, 5s, or SE. It’s intended for the iPhone 6/6 Plus and later. Installing the tweak on the smaller-screened device won’t look as nice. Once the tweak is installed, it will start to work automatically as there is no options to configure. 

The new look and feel, which makes the banner look more bubbly with a bright title bar, will be seen universally throughout iOS. This includes the Lock screen, Notification Center, and even when a banner notification pops up while you’re on the Home screen or in an app.

From the top post, you can swipe to the right on a notification and you’ll get the same options you would see on an iOS 10 device, including the clear button for dismissing the notification and a button for replying when it’s relevant.

The same visual effects are applied to your Notification Center widgets:


The tweak was tested on iPhone 5s and things look a little crowded on the puny 4-inch display, as was mentioned earlier. So it is better to enable iOS 10 style notification banners on iOS 9 iPhone 6/6 Plus and later using Notifications10 tweak.

How To Free Up GBs Of Free Space On iOS 10 iPhone

In this post we will show you how to free up GBs o free space on your iOS 10 iPhone even without jailbreak. Storage on iOS devices has long been a bit of an issue for some users. Those people often have smaller capacity devices such as those with 16GB or even 8GB storage, but the issue can befall those who carry 128GB devices too. As you know that i all depends on what you have installed and usage on your device as well.

But if you’re down to the last few hundred megabytes, you better have a plan for quickly freeing some space back up.

How To Free Up GBs Of Free Space On iOS 10.1.1 iPhone

Before iOS 10 release there was a nifty trick that could free up space with few easy steps, and it involved downloading a large movie. Many users who tried this on their iOS 9 devices claimed that it worked for them. As it turned out, iOS would recognize there was a shortage of free space and then attempt to rectify that by removing unused, old temporary and cache files from applications. Setting a movie to download, then jumping into settings from the low storage alert could often result in quite a lot of space being left over. But this game was over when Apple has released iOS 10 update.

Fortunately the scheme works just fine using the App Store and a large app of which there are plenty to choose from.

So to free up GBs o free space on iOS 10 iPhone you should download the largest app you can find in App Store and then watch within the Settings app (Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Available) as iOS 10 goes about removing files it doesn’t need in an attempt to free up space. Then, simply cancel the download once you can see that space has been created and the amount of space used by your apps has reduced.

As you see the trick is really simple, but it actually helps you to get free space on your device.
