Top 10 jailbreak tricks for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in 2010-2011
I must say that 2010 is very rich in various tweaks and applications for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with jailbreak. We offer the top 10 free and paid jailbreak utilities of 2010, which significantly expand the functionality of iOS and fully reveal the capabilities of Apple mobile devices.
10. Fast Copy
At the tenth place of our top is a useful tweak of the copy-past function. The only thing that Fast Copy does is remove the delay that occurs every time you click on the buttons in the clipboard pop-up menu in iOS.
The edit menu buttons (copy, paste, select all) always hang up a bit before performing an action. Actually, this is done by Apple on purpose. This tweak eliminates it, speeding up the process of cutting, copying and pasting in iOS.
SwitcherPlus is one of the most useful tweaks, because it allows you to fix the icon of any program in the multitasking panel. This is very convenient, especially when using password collectors like LastPass, 1Password or any other applications you need to have quick access to.
IOS users with jailbreak have the opportunity to expand the functionality of the system using special tweaks. Utilities InfiniFolders and FolderEnhancer allow you to have limitless folders, and InfiniDock - an unlimited number of icons in the dock.
Tweak ScrollingBoard combines the capabilities of all these programs and allows you to:
- add an unlimited number of icons to the dock and folders
- install ipod docking
- have dock volume and brightness controls
- install any addons and widgets
- have an AirPlay dock icon
- use the “scrollview” mode.
The SwitcherMod utility changes the switch panel functions in iOS 4.x. For example, you can opt out of the traditional way of closing applications by holding icons. SwitcherMod puts a cross on all icons in the multitasking panel for quick removal of unnecessary programs.
In addition, SwitcherMod allows you to change the algorithm for displaying icons. It's strange to see in the multitasking panel applications that are not running, right? Instead of displaying active and recently used utilities, it is more logical to leave there only active application icons. This not only reduces slagging of the panel, but is also more natural for the end user. If you prefer to see there recently used programs, then in the Exited App Style setting there is a Transparent option, which makes the icons of non-working applications transparent.
6. Action Menu
The Action Menu extends the capabilities of the standard copy-past feature in iOS. Additional package from Cydia contains a rich set of functions:
- Clipboard history
- Google search; Wikipedia; Dictionary and Google translator;
- Quickly send selected text via Twetter client installed on iPhone (Tweetie, Twitterific, Twittelator and TwitterFon)
It's no secret that even after several software updates, the distance sensor in the iPhone 4 continues to fail, delivering a lot of inconvenience when using a smartphone. Cydia CallLock solves this problem by blocking the device screen for the duration of the call.
Manual mode allows you to lock the iPhone 4 screen with the Power button, without dropping the call.
RemoveBG does a very simple thing - it closes all applications running in the background. Removing all applications from the multitasking panel not only frees the memory, but also makes the iOS device faster and more efficient.
Toggle switch for SBSettings frees iPhone memory in one tap.
Another extremely useful application for jailbreakers is Synchronicity. Tweak allows you to use your iPhone while syncing with iTunes via USB.
By default, when syncing (copying music, installing applications, etc.) from iTunes, “Syncing in progress” appears on the iPhone screen. In this case, the phone becomes unavailable for work. If you need to go online or launch an iPod, you will have to interrupt the procedure.
Synchronicity removes this restriction, allowing you to work with your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad during syncing.
BiteSMS is the best SMS manager for iPhone. The program supports all the functions of the native application in iOS, including the landscape keyboard, MMS, the forwarding function, the deletion of several messages and contains a number of its unique functions:
- Quickly create SMS / answer / call
- Insert emoticons and contacts
- Fast forward / delete
- Character Count / Shipping Costs
- Autocorrection Control
- Hiding the keyboard (by clicking on an empty space above the text)
To call a quick SMS, simply tap the speaker icon after pressing the volume button. This is what the Messages application on the iPhone should be.
The reason why MyWi won the title of the best jailbreak tweak is simple. The program offers the most revolutionary feature for iOS: with one tap, it turns your iPhone into an access point or Wi-Fi router. Now you can connect your laptop or iPad to the Internet in any place where there is a mobile connection from the iPhone.
If you were thinking about buying an iPad with Wi-Fi or 3G, then with this tweak for iPhone this question will disappear by itself. The program provides 40 and 104-bit WEP network encryption and allows any device to connect to the iPhone network in a few seconds.
