How To Shrink And Relocate The iPhone Lock screen’s Date And Time Indicator

If you want to shrink and relocate the iPhone Lock screen’s date and time indicator in iOS 10 then you should consider checking the new Cydia tweak called SimpleLSiOS10 by XCXiao. This jailbreak tweak simply and easy does this work for your by rearranging some of the Lock screen’s information to reduce their visual size. It relocates the Lock screen’s clock and date information into the top left corner rather than being in the top center as it would be on a stock device.

How To Shrink And Relocate The Lock screen’s Date And Time Indicator On iPhone


This tweak offers the similar functionality to SubtleLock tweak but the latter divided the time and date by placing them each of them on opposing corners. SimpleLSiOS10 tweak puts the Lock screen’s date and time info in the same corner. Unfortunately SubtleLock tweak hasn't been updated to iOS 10 yet.


It’s worth noting that SimpleLSiOS10 makes your iPhone or iPod touch’s Lock screen look a lot like the iPad’s whenever it’s in landscape mode. To better illustrate what I mean by that, just look at the stock iPad Lock screen (landscape mode) below:


So to relocate the iPhone Lock screen’s date and time indicator go to Cydia and grab SimpleLSiOS10 tweak for free. The tweak comes with dedicated a preferences pane, so once it is installed you can find there options to toggle the tweak on or off on demand. To save your changes hit a respring button:

SimpleLSiOS10 is a decent way to shrink down and relocate the information on your jailbroken iOS 10 device’s Lock screen. Although there are few alternative tweaks on Cydia that offer similar functionality only SimpleLSiOS10 tweak supports iOS 10. So if you like the way this tweak rearranges the size and place of Lock screen’s date and time indicator then you can grab this tweak right away.

New Tweak Shows Your Favorite Apps In Control Center On iOS 10

A new Cydia release called App Center displays your favorite apps in Control Center on iOS 10. This useful tweak adds a new page to Control Center to show up to nine of your apps. Here is how the tweak works.

How To Show Favorite And Recently Used Apps In Control Center On iPhone


App Center can be downloaded for $3.99 from Cydia so to get started download it on your device. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 10 devices. App Center will add dedicated preferences pane to Settings app. There you can enable or disable the tweak’s functionality on a demand and adjust the size of the windowed apps in Control Center.

Once the tweak is installed, launch Control Center and swipe to the right until you see the third page. This is where you can find all recently used apps.

Any app you search for or enable in the app picker is going to become a live app on your jailbroken iPhone, so it will appear recently used in your App Switcher and will use your device’s RAM too.

It is possible to tap and hold on any of the app icons that appear in the app picker, and doing so will launch the apps in their regular full-screen mode instead if you don’t want to use the app in windowed mode in Control Center.

Apart from showing your recently used apps, you can also display favorite apps in Control Center on iOS 10. To add you favorite apps tap on the search icon in the top right corner of tweak, search for app, and then add it to Control Center.

App Center is the great tweak that provides you with the quick access to favorite and recently used apps and interact with them on your iOS 10 device.

New Cydia Tweak Simplify The Control Center Interface In iOS 10

If you're minimalist and like to shed off unnecessary layers of your device's UI to leave a lighter footprint then you should try jailbreak tweak called onion by candoizo, that simplifies the Control Center interface on iPhone. This Cydia tweak is designed to give Control Center both a simpler and sleeker look by removing one of the background layers from the interface.

How To Simplify The Control Center Interface In iOS 10


Look at the picture above. As you can see onion tweak removes the cloudier background and makes the glyphs appear to be “free-floating” in the Control Center interface. It rids the interface of the stark distinction between background and button, giving it a flatter look with an increased level of transparency.

So if you want to simplify the Control Center interface on iPhone then you can download onion tweak for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. The tweak doesn’t offer any options to configure, so after once it is installed, its effects immediate and remain until you remove the tweak from your device. Keep in mind also that Control Center was redesigned starting with iOS 10 so onion is intended to work only on jailbroken iOS 10 devices. 

Onion works nicely with the iOS 10 version of Noctis, so even if you’re rocking a dark mode for Control Center, you’ll see that onion still strips away that additional cloudy layer:


In conclusion I can say that jailbreaking offers many ways to improve user experience by either adding new enhancements or removing the unnecessary things. So whether or not the new styling appeals to you comes down to personal opinion. But if you want your device look different from everyone else’s without spending a single cent then onion tweak is the best choice. So if you're jailbroken with Yalu iOS 10 jailbreak then head to Cydia and grab this simple tweak.

You can also use additional options for filtering third-party app clutter from the Phone app, if you don’t want to see all of their important phone calls getting mixed into the bunch with a ton of history items from other apps that may not be as important for you.

As for me Phone Tools is a simple tweak that many users will love. So if you want to customize the UI of Phone app Phone Tools will definitely help you to do it on your jailbroken iOS 10 iPhone.

NotifyMusic Displays A Notification Each Time A Song Changes On iPhone

If you're music fan and have jailbroken device then you'll find new Cydia release called NotifyMusic useful. This jailbreak tweak displays a banner notification each time a song changes on iPhone. This banner contains songs metadata, including the name of the song and the artist and a small preview of the album artwork . It even shows you what app is playing the media. The banner will cover the small part of your screen so it won't encumber you when you using another app.


Even if you’re listening from your own local playlists and song libraries and know your music by heart, NotifyMusic has the potential to simply give you a nice aesthetic any time your music changes. The tweak can be also useful for folks who listens to a lot of music using online streamed radio stations. The moment you hear a tune that you aren’t familiar with but like, you will get to see information about it right away.

New Tweak Lets Customize Control Center Background In iOS 10

A new Cydia tweak known as CCWallCustomizer by iKilledAppl3 allows you to customize iOS 10 Control Center background. Users can choose any image of their choice from their device’s camera roll as the Control Center’s wallpaper.


CCWallCustomizer tweak is available as a free download package in Cydia and supports only jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Once the tweak is installed on your device it will add a new preferences pane in the Settings app where you can easily set up the background you want to use for Control Center.

How To Change Control Center Background In iOS 10

To set any image as Control Center wallpaper simply open CCWallCustomizer tweak’s Settings. First make sure the ‘Enable Tweak’ toggle is on. Then tap on the ‘Pick An Image’ and choose the image you want to use in the background. It can be any image from your photos. Once you have selected the image your device will quickly respring. When it comes back up, you can then swipe up to reveal Control Center and see how your new background looks.

If you don't like the background you've set then navigate to the tweak's preferences pane and find a button to remove the current image from Control Center.


Note that not all backgrounds are going to look great in Control Center as some colors can conflict with the text and colors in the interface. It is recommended to set images like the one shown on the top post picture. Unfortunately there is no way to adjust the opacity of the image, which if added, would help a lot with this potential issue.

CCWallCustomizer tweak offers an easy and a quick way to customize iOS 10 Control Center background on your jailbroken device. Do note that it is currently incompatible with Noctis and other dark mode tweaks out there.

New Tweak Prevents From Accidentally Force-Quitting Apps That Are Currently Playing Media

Those people with jailbroken devices have a great ability to learn how to avoid to accidentally force-quit apps that are currently playing media. From time to time when I force-quit apps from my App Switcher, I end up closing an app that’s playing media in the background by accident. It can be really annoying as I need to do everything all over again: re-launch the app and re-play the song I was just listening to.


But a new jailbreak tweak dubbed as NoClose by Skylerk99 becomes a real helper for me as it prevent me from accidentally force-quitting apps that are playing media in the background by prompting me beforehand.
So how to get this tweak, simply navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download NoClose tweak on you device. It supports both jailbroken iOS 9 and 10 devices and doesn’t offer any options to configure, so once you’ve installed the tweak it will be enabled right away.

NoClose tweak works by showing a confirmation message every time you attempt to close an app that is playing media in the background. If you do that, the tweak quickly displays an alert informing you that the app you're trying to quit is playing media now. You have two options either close the app, or keep the app running in the background.

The tweak supports stock Music app and third-party applications including Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, etc. Personally I encountered with some problems when using the tweak with Spotify app, but I hope the developer will quickly fix it with the next tweak's update.

In conclusion I can say that NoClose tweak is a great jailbreak tweak, although it doesn't bring any new functionality or feature it can prevent you from stop listening to your favorite song when you force-quitting apps from App Switcher.

3DLight Brings Opacity To Widgets And 3D Touch Menus In iOS 10

A new jailbreak tweak called 3DLight brings opacity to widgets and 3D Touch menus in iOS 10. So if you want to add some light changes to your 3D Touch menus and the widgets look in Notification Center and on your Lock screen then go on reading this post.

How To Bring Opacity To Widgets And 3D Touch Menus

3DLight tweak brings a purely aesthetic change as you’ll see from the pictures below. Here you can compare how the tweak changes the widgets on the Lock screen:


The next two examples show the way 3DLight changes the look and style of the widgets in Notification Center:


As you can see all of the info remains as legible as it was before tweak's effects, so you've just get a slight style change. What's more important, your iPhone’s system resources now don't have to blur any of the content which appears behind your widgets or menus.

So if you want to bring opacity to widgets and 3D Touch menus in iOS 10 you should navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download 3DLight tweak for free. It doesn’t offer any options for configurations and it supports only jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

3DLight tweak works with third-party Notification Center and Lock screen widgets that are available for download from the App Store. It also works with devices that don't support 3D touch feature as long as some 3D Touch-simulation tweak like Peek-a-Boo (by developer Creatix) is installed on them. Don't forget that tweaks like RevealMenu or Forcy haven't yet been updated to support iOS 10, so they are not compatible with 3DLight.

AS for me 3DLight is interesting tweak, so if you prefer opaque look more than the typical transparent one, then you should give this tweak a try.

How To Choose When Low Power Mode Toggles On/Off Automatically In iOS 10

Those folks with jailbroken device now have a great ability to choose when Low Power Mode toggles on automatically in iOS 10. One way to conserve power on your iPhone when the battery level gets uncomfortably low is to turn on the built-in Low Power Mode. This feature reduces power consumption on your device by doing things like reducing your screen brightness, slashing background tasks, and making your iPhone fall asleep faster, among other things.


But iOS doesn’t kick itself into Low Power Mode automatically until you reach at staggeringly-low 20% of your battery life. That’s why a new Cydia release dubbed as Low Power Modder allows you to choose when Low Power Mode toggles on automatically in iOS 10.

How To Choose When Low Power Mode Toggles On/Off Automatically

Low Power Modder is available as a free download package on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. The tweak is compatible only with jailbroken iOS 10 iPhones. As iPads and iPod touches do not have Low Power Mode feature they are not supported.

Once you're done with installation Low Power Modder will add a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can toggle the tweak on or off on demand, as well as configure some options:


This tweak essentially lets you configure a custom battery level at which Low Power Mode will toggle on automatically on your iPhone. If you feel like the default 20% threshold is pushing it, then you might opt to start saving power when your battery hits around 40% or so.

Low Power Modder also allows you to choose when Low Power Mode turns off when your device is charging. With this tweak you can configure Low Power Mode remain on until you’re at 90%, or even 100%, as it can help your device to charge faster by lowering power usage as the device charges to its fullest.

What is really great is that Low Power Modder is all automatic, it means that after you’ve set your configurations you’ll never have to toggle Low Power Mode on manually on your jailbroken device.

How To Save The Place In The Music App When Respring Or Force-Quit The App

New Cydia release called MusicMark helps to save the place in the Music app when respring or force-quit the app. This is not a secret that when you’re in the middle of listening to media via Apple’s Music app and you end up having to force-quit the app or respring your device for any reason, you’ll notice that the app never remembers your place in the song when you get the Music app up and running again. MusicMark tweak by iOS developer Tony Kraft fixes this by problem by forcing the Music app to remember your place in a song whenever you respring or force-quit the Music app. Let's find out how this tweak works.

How To Save The Place In The Music App When Respring Or Force-Quit The App On iPhone


MusicMark tweak can be a savior for jailbreakers as they tend to respring their devices quite frequently due to the need of having to respring after installing or configuring certain jailbreak tweaks.

So to get MusicMark tweak you need to go to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and grab it for free. It’s made to work on jailbroken iOS 9 and iOS 10 devices. The tweak doesn't offer any configurations. Once you install it, if you do end up respringing or force-quitting your Music app, your device will come back up and you can re-launch the Music app to start playing your music again right where it was before you last took action.

Note that the tweak doesn’t force the music to start playing again automatically, so you still have to re-launch the Music app and tap play manually when you’re ready.

MusicMark isn’t intended to be used with third-party music apps like Spotify Music, because it is useless to save the place in the Music app when respring or force-quit the app if it already has this option. 

As a conclusion I can say that MusicMark tweak will be useful for those users who always testing and configuring jailbreak tweaks on a daily basis. If you want to continue where you left off in my Music app after installing something new from Cydia and respringing your device, then MusicMark can help you to do that with ease.

Those folks who uses Spotify to listen to their favorite music will love a new free Cydia release called SpotStationNoLikedSongsPlz by HiDaN, that prevents Spotify radio stations from playing songs you’ve Liked in the past.

The tweak works together with the free Spotify Music app by preventing the radio stations in the app from queuing songs that you’ve already liked in the past. As the result, you aren’t going to hear the music that was saved previously or heard before. Instead, radio stations will only play music you haven’t previously liked before. This includes new releases that you’ve never heard before and related songs that sound similar to the music you like.


Here is the short review on how to install and use SpotStationNoLikedSongsPlz tweak.

How To Prevents Spotify Radio Stations From Playing Songs You’Ve Liked In The Past

So to get started you should head to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download SpotStationNoLikedSongsPlz tweak for free. Note that this tweak supports jailbroken iOS 10 devices only.

Since this tweak works with the Spotify Music app only, it’s not going to work with any other music app including the stock one that’s pre-installed by Apple from the factory. So keep that in mind.

The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand. So if you ever feel like disabling the tweak's settings and listen to everything, then you can do it there by moving the toggle to position off.


You should force-quit the Spotify app from the App Switcher and re-launch it any time to change the setting so that it can take effect properly.

Preventing Spotify radio stations from playing songs you’ve liked in the past SpotStationNoLikedSingsPlz tweak allows you to listen to new track that you’ve never heard before, that is really great.

Harbor Tweak Enables MacOS-Styled Dock On iOS 10 iPhone

If your device is jailbroken with Yalu jailbreak then you have a great ability to enable macOS-styled dock on your iOS 10 iPhone. The Home screen dock in iOS has remained the same past few years, and still doesn’t have the ability to contain more than 4 apps. Jailbreak tweak called Harbor brings a new look to the Home screen dock. And here is a short review about this Cydia release.

How To Enable MacOS-Styled Dock In iOS 10


Harbor has been available in Cydia for quite some time, but the latest version of this tweak now supports iOS 10. It enables a macOS-styled dock on iOS 10 iPhone, letting you add as many apps as you’d like to the dock as well as enjoy new animations.

So if you're jaibroken on iOS 10 then head Cydia’s BigBoss repo and grab Harbor tweak for $0.99. The tweak comes with a dedicated preferences pane in Settings where you can customize and configure the tweak the way you like. 

As you add more apps to the dock, the icons start to shrink in size to make place for the new app. While you can add as many apps as you want, there comes a point where the size of the icons are too tiny and uncomfortable to the eyes.

Apart from this, you can scroll through each app by placing your finger on the dock and sliding across the app icons. As you do so, you’ll notice an animation effect similar to the one seen in macOS. Additionally, as you are sliding your finger across the dock, you can release it on a particular app to launch it right away. Apps that are opened in the background will get a black state dot underneath them to indicate that they are active now while those with a pending notification will start to bounce.

Harbor is really great tweak that brings an entirely new look and feel to your Home screen dock enabling a macOS styled dock on jailbroken device.

Dubbed as DisplayWeather 10 this new jailbreak tweak puts your weather information to the left of the date information in each of these interfaces, letting you dedicate the space that would normally be taken up by the weather widget to other widgets instead.

How To Put Weather Info At The Top Of The Notification Center And Lock Screen Widget Pages


DisplayWeather 10 tweak utilizes the information that your iPhone’s stock Weather app receives based on your current location, so to use this tweak, you will need to have Location Services turn on for Weather. Also the tweak only works on iOS 10 so your device must be jailbroken with Yalu jailbreak.

How To Keep Track Of When iOS 10 Jailbreak Certificate Will Expire

If your device is jailbroken you should keep track of when iOS 10 jailbreak certificate will expire. As you may know both the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10 devices and the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9 rely on certificates that have expiration dates. You have to re-sign the jailbreak with Cydia Impactor past the expiration date to keep your jailbroken state.


No matter what kind of certificate you have, whether it’s a regular 7-day certificate or a 1-year developer certificate, it will expire anyway, and a new jailbreak app called CertRemainTime by developer lululombard can help you keep track of it. Read how to install CertRemainTime app on your device.

How To Keep Track Of When iOS 10 Yalu Jailbreak Certificate Will Expire

To get started head to Cydia’s Bigboss repository and download CertRemainTime app on your jailbroken device. The app works on all devices jailbroken with the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10. Keep in mind that the app only works if you’ve jailbroken with Cydia Impactor. If you have jailbroken with any other way, such as via a web browser, the app is not guaranteed to work.

CertRemainTime is a simple app that gets added to your Home screen that’s always consciously aware of how long your Yalu jailbreak has before it needs to be re-signed. The app is really easy in use as it keeps track of when iOS 10 jailbreak certificate will expire by showing the date on the screen and that's it. The
example is shown below.


The app detects your jailbreak certificate info automatically and reports the date and time that it’s set to expire in the app, without any configuration at all.

CertRemainTime is not only a great app for the forgetful person, but it is recommended to have a utility that reminds you when it’s time to keep a computer nearby. After all, if you reboot your jailbroken device when the certificate is expired, and you don’t have a computer nearby, you’ll end up jailbreak-less until you get back to your PC again.

What is more App Percent has the other major feature, it notifies you once downloads are completed:


This feature can be really useful for many iPhone users who get stuck with long waits while downloading apps and just opening other apps on their phone and doing other things to pass the time. As the result, they just forget about their new app.

How To Remove The Share This App Option From 3D Touch App Shortcuts In iOS 10

Those who have jailbroken iOS 10 device can quickly remove the Share This App option from 3D Touch app shortcuts with the new Cydia release. As you may know when Apple initially started adding support for 3D Touch to apps on the Home screen in iOS 9, there were some that supported the feature, and some that didn’t. With iOS 10 release Apple attempted to make the feature more ‘useful’ for apps that didn’t utilize 3D Touch in creative ways by adding the “Share This App” menu option to those apps.

Because a lot of people don’t need or want to share their apps, and because it feels like unnecessary clutter to even have this menu option there in the first place, a new jailbreak tweak dubbed as NoSharePlz by Olxios&Nico will quickly remove it once and for all.

How To Remove The Share This App Option From 3D Touch App Shortcuts


Whether you’re using a device like the iPhone 6s/6s Plus or the iPhone 7/7 Plus and are using 3D Touch legitimately, or you’re using a tweak like Peek-A-Boo to enable 3D Touch menus on unsupported devices like the iPhone 6/6 Plus and earlier, these “Share This App” options are going to come up when you reveal the 3D Touch menu.

Once you install NoSharePlz tweak, the option will be gone from all of your 3D Touch menus on the Home screen. The tweak leaves you with only the menu options that are going to matter the most to you. Of course, if there would be no other options for a particular app, then you won’t see a menu at all anymore.

So if you're interested in trying NoSharePlz on your jailbroken iOS 10 device, the tweak is available as a free download package from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. There are no options to configure, so after installing the tweak will immediately remove the Share This App option from 3D Touch app shortcuts on your jailbroken device.

The tweak supports all iOS 10 devices that support 3D touch out of the box, as well as devices with installed tweak that simulate the Home screen 3D Touch menu experience.

How To Enable 3D Touch Feature On An Older iPhone In iOS 10

If you want to get 3D Touch feature on an older iPhone in iOS 10 then Peek-a-Boo tweak will help you to do it. Once the tweak is installed you can press down harder on a link, a photo preview inside the Photos app, a thread in the Messages app or an email within the stock Mail app, your finger comes into contact with greater surface area and the interaction is registered by the tweak, which then allows you to take a peek at the underlying content. You can then swipe up, left and right for additional options, or press harder to have the full content pop out.

How To Enable 3D Touch Feature On An Older iPhone

 
 
Since not all iOS devices support 3D Touch, Peek-a-Boo tweak easily enables 3D Touch simulation on such devices. This tweak is not currently available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository, so to get 3D Touch feature on an older iPhone in iOS 10, you should install the tweak following steps below:

Step 1) Launch the Cydia app and go to the Sources tab.

Step 2) Click on the Edit button and then hit the Add button.

Step 3) In the text field of the pop-up that appears, type in the following repository URL:

https://repo.ioscreatix.com/

Step 4) Press on the Add Source button and wait for the repository to load into Cydia.

Step 5) Now you should be able to search for and install Peek-a-Boo from Cydia – it’s a free download.

Once installed, you can tap and hold and then gradually smoosh your finger on your screen to simulate a 3D Touch gesture on your non-3D Touch display. 
 

The tweak also unlocks the keyboard trackpad feature that the iPhone 6s employs for quick cursor movement and text selection, though it is quite hard to switch from cursor movement to text selection, which requires you to press harder while keeping your finger very still. Cursor movement works like a charm, though.


Wormhole Tweak Adds 3D Touch Shortcuts To Control Center In iOS 10

A new Cydia release called Wormhole, by developer candoizo, adds 3D Touch shortcuts to Control Center in iOS 10. This means that those who jailbroken with new Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.0-10.2 can use this tweak. Wormhole allows you to turn two of your Control Center toggle buttons into 3D Touch shortcuts for visiting your favorite website and respringing your device.

How To Add 3D Touch Shortcuts To Control Center On iOS 10 iPhone

So in order to add 3D Touch shortcuts to Control Center in iOS 10 you should download Wormhole tweak for free from Cydia. After installation the tweak will add its preferences pane to Settings app where you'll find few configuration options. Once done with configuration you must respring your jailbroken device to save your changes.


So now with the help of Wormhole tweak you can use a 3D Touch gesture on the Wi-Fi toggle to bring up a button for getting to a pre-configured favorite website, or use a 3D Touch gesture on the Do Not Disturb toggle to respring your device. Of course you can choose any website you want. The respring shortcut in its turn is non-configurable. That’s just what the developer happened to code into the Do Not Disturb toggle.


Those users who have jailbroken iOS 10 device but it doesn't support 3D Touch feature can use another tweak known as Peek-a-Boo that enables 3D Touch simulation in Control Center. Once Peek-a-Boo is installed on your device just tap and hold and then gradually touch your finger on your screen to simulate a 3D Touch gesture on your non-3D Touch display. 

Keep in mind that tweaks like Forcy or RevealMenu won’t work with Wormhole, because they’re developed for usage outside of Control Center. So Peek-a-Boo tweak is a best choice for jailbroken iOS 10 iPhone.

Slide Over and Split View are two great features of iOS, that Apple has limited to only few iPads for what they call, “performance restraints.” But Gorgone tweak by CydiaGeek unlocks these two features on all unsupported devices, but they must be jailbroken of course.

How To Enable Split View And Slide Over Features On Unsupported Devices


Normally Slide Over and Split View are only enabled on such devices as:

  • iPad Pro
  • iPad Air 2 (except Split View)
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2 (except Split View)
As you can see there is no iPhone in this list and even no models of iPad, which is perfectly capable of running the feature.


So to enable Split View feature on unsupported iOS 10 devices you need to simply install Gorgone tweak that is available as a free download package from the Cydia’s Bigboss repository. The tweak supports both jailbroken iOS 9 and iOS 10 devices. Once installed, Gorgone will add its preferences pane to the Settings app where you can turn the tweak on/off the demand. It also includes a Respring button so that you can save your changes.

So now you can activate Slide Over and Split View feature on any of your devices, regardless of whether Apple has it enabled by default or not. As shown on the top post, the feature works perfectly on a 5.5-inch iPhone.

To use it, you just swipe from the right side of the screen, which displays the app picker. From there, you can choose an app, and iOS will load the app right beside the app you’re already in.

It should be mentioned that Gorgone tweak also enables Home screen rotation on unsupported devices. This means that smaller 4-inch iPhones owners can enjoy a landscape Home screen just like on the larger iPhones models.

How To Enable Substrate Safe Mode To Fix iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Issues

In this post we will teach you how to fix iOS 10.2 jailbreak issues by enabling Substrate Safe Mode on jailbroken iOS device. Of course jailbreaking brings many advantaging to a stock iOS parts by adding new functionality or improving the iOS features. You can enjoy your jailbroken device with all its new means till the time when things start to go awry, potentially because there is an issue with the jailbreak itself, or because you’ve inadvertently installed a tweak or package which doesn’t offer total compatibility with your device and firmware version. In such cases you encounter with various issues.


Thanks to Substrate Safe Mode that allows users to restore some sanity, and to instantly get a break from the recurring issues. Substrate Safe Mode is essentially a built-in safety net for when things start to go wrong, or when the device starts to show signs of performing in an unexpected manner. Enabling Substrate Safe Mode, jailbroken devices owners can debug tweaks and packages causing issues. And here is the guide on how to to fix iOS 10.2 jailbreak issues on iPhone.

It is recommended to update Substrate Safe Mode to the latest version 0.9.6000 which adds support for yalu102 jailbreak.

Now follow easy steps to fix iOS 10.2 jailbreak issues on your affected device.

Step 1: So if you’re facing any type of issues with your jailbroken device, then you have probably rebooted it which means that it is in a non-jailbroken state given the semi-untethered nature of yalu102. If not, you will need to reboot the iPhone or iPad and make sure your device is in non-jailbreak mode.

Step 2: With the device rebooted, and now in a non-jailbroken state, open the yalu102 jailbreak app from the Home screen.

Step 3: Now click on the “go” button. To enable Substrate Safe Mode, you’re going to need to instantly press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons together right after tapping the go button.

Step 4: Keep those buttons pressed simultaniously until you first see the Apple boot logo, followed by the Lock screen.

That’s it. You have successfully put the device into Substrate Safe Mode. Now the next time when you install a faulty or incompatible tweak, your device will crash and go into Safe Mode rather than causing any critical issues. When in safe mode mode, all the installed jailbreak tweaks are disabled to allow you to safely remove the faulty tweak and go back to stable mode.

New Cydia Release Speeds Up iOS 10 On iPhone

Jailbreaking always brings some innovations to stock iOS platform and with the Speedy tweak you would be able to speed up iOS 10 on iPhone. One of the best things about jailbreaking your iPhoone is being afforded with the freedom to be able to make choices and personalization that Apple otherwise wouldn’t let you have. Some users opt to install new themes and visual amendments.


Some iOS 10 jailbroken device owners look to put on tweaks and extensions which are designed to dramatically change how the underlying OS looks or performs. Speedy jailbreak tweak essentially removes all animations from iOS completely to make it a slicker, and faster interaction experience.

How To Speed Up iOS 10 On iPhone

There are many tweaks available via Cydia that are designed to change the way animations function within iOS. Some of those extensions offer the ability to change the speed of animations by allowing the user the ability to define his/her own animation time. This could be used to speed up the animation, or slow it down depending on the user’s preferences.

We’ve also seen tweaks which exist purely from a speeding up-perspective, and set the animation to a preset defined by the developer. This definitely works for some, but doesn’t appeal to all as there’s no, or very limited control, over it from a device owner’s perspective. All these tweak are interesting but not all of them support iOS 10.2 devices.

Speedy, which is available from the following repository in Cydia (http://repo.sparkservers.co.uk.), basically takes away the control from the user and appeals to those individuals who simply want the animations gone completely. No changing of the time frame or animation block structure, no additional settings that allow flexibility. This is simply a tweak which disables the animations in iOS 10, making the whole iOS interaction experience a lot faster as a result. It may not look as pretty as Apple’s stock iOS experience, but it’s definitely speed up iOS 10 on iPhone, as you can see in the video above.



 

New Cydia Tweak Uses 3D Touch In Control Center To Get To Specialized Settings

If you have jailbroken iOS 9 or 10 device you can use 3D Touch in Control Center to enable specialized settings with new jailbreak tweak called CCTButtonActions. Control Center offers you many useful toggles letting you do things like enable or disable Airplane Mode, Rotation Lock, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or even Do Not Disturb mode. The developer behind the CCTButtonActions tweak has found an easy way to adds 3D touch shortcuts to Control Center top bar. Here is how the tweak works.

How To Use 3D Touch In Control Center To Get To Specialized Settings


CCTButtonActions tweak takes advantage from 3D Touch equipped devices. Once you 3D Touch on any of the toggle buttons at the top of Control Center it will present you with popup menu that lets you reveal the advanced settings of the toggle you’re selected.

For instance, using 3D Touch gesture on Bluetooth toggle reveals your device’s Bluetooth preferences pane, 3D Touch on Do Not Disturb toggle takes you to Do Not Disturb preferences pane as shown on the picture below and more.


It should be noted that CCTButtonActions tweak doesn’t remove any functionality from the existing interface, all it does is adding more options to it.

CCTButtonActions tweak is available as a free download package from Cydia. You can begin using the tweak immediately, as it doesn't offer any options for configuration. Note that the tweak supports both iOS 9 and iOS 10, and it works with 3D Touch-equipped devices only. You can also use 3D Touch-simulation tweak like revealMenu to use CCTButtonActions on devices that don't support this feature.

Using 3D Touch in Control Center to enable specialized settings CCTButtonActions tweak provides you with the faster way to get to the direct settings that power your toggles, that is really saves you time as there is no need to launch these preference panes.
