ReachAll cydia tweak demoed

One of the new features available for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is called Reachability. When activated with a double tap on the TouchID Home button, the screen slides down so you can access the elements on top of the screen. ReachAll is a new tweak that brings this functionality to all iOS 8 compatible devices, even those without TouchID.


Reachability makes it easier to use the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with one hand. The ReachAll tweak lets you use this feature on older devices with a smaller display and could be useful for those who have trouble reaching the top of the screen. This tweak works on devices with or without TouchID. On devices with TouchID such as the iPhone 5s, simply double tap on the Home button to use. For devices without a TouchID, an onscreen button enables this functionality. It works throughout iOS and can be dismissed by tapping on the screen.

You can enable/disable ReachAll from the Settings app, where you can also enable the Tap Box and change its position on the screen. This is what Reachability looks like on a 4-inch iOS device.


ReachAll is available in the BigBoss repo for free and requires iOS 8 or later. Try it out and let us know if you find it useful.

SBFlip cydia tweak demoed

With the release of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple released some device specific features such as Reachability and Lanscape Mode. The iPhone 6 Plus, due to its large size, isn’t easy to use with one hand. On the 6 Plus, Landscape Mode lets you change the orientation of the homescreen so you can use the device easily. A new Cydia tweak called SBFlip now brings this Landscape Mode to any iOS 8 compatible device.


SBFlip adds a landscape mode to your homescreen, but from some testing, it only works good with the iPhone 6. I noticed that on older iOS devices, even on a 4-inch display, the apps overlap each other when in landscape mode. Checkout the screenshot below, notice the dock?


If you’re an iPhone 6 user and would like to have Landscape Mode on your device, then you need to try out this tweak. SBFlip is available in the BigBoss repo for free and works on iOS 8 and later only. Want to jailbreak your iPhone 6? Follow our tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 8 and install Cydia manually.

Vine++ Cydia Tweak Demoed On iPhone

If you’ve used Vine before, then you know that you cannot download videos from the app. Some videos or ‘vines’ are so hilarious, that they need to be saved to your Camera Roll. The iOS app doesn’t allow you to do so. Enter Vine++, a new tweak that lets you download Vines from the iOS app. There are other tweaks and third party apps that do the same, but the more the merrier.


Vine++ doesn’t come with any options. Once installed, you’ll see a small arrow at the corner of every Vine video. Tap on it and the video will simply download to your Camera Roll. The tweak also allows you to stop the autoplay feature, which can be very annoying.


The Disable Autoplay toggle can be found in the Vine iOS app settings. So if you like Vine videos and like to download them, you should try this tweak out. It’s available in the BigBoss repo for free. Try it out and let us know what you think of it in comments section.

Lockspeed jailbreak tweak demoed on iPhone

LockSpeed is a new tweak that lets you add speed dial options to your lockscreen. It’s similar to the Favorites section on the Phone app, but with this tweak, you can access them directly from the lockscreen.


With this tweak installed, you no longer have to unlock your device to place a call to one of your favorites. It displays the first 9 contacts in your favorites list on a separate page on the lockscreen. To access this page, you simply have to swipe left on the screen and you can tap to call a contact. This can be very handy when you’re in a hurry to call your friend, girlfriend, parents etc.

You can Enable/Disable the tweak from the Settings app. LockSpeed shows your favorite contacts in circles, just like how the numbers are shown on the lockscreen. If your contact has an image, then the contact image is shown, otherwise you’ll only see the initials. Hence, it would be much better if you have images for your contacts!


A useful tweak, don’t you think? LockSpeed is currently available in the BigBoss repo for $1.99. It isn’t compatible with the new iOS 8 jailbreak yet, but any device on iOS 7.0.x or later will be compatible. Try it out and let us know what you think of it.

Yes, you read that right. You can play/pause, increase/decrease volume, change the track and more using just gestures even when your screen is off. You don’t have to unlock your device or turn on the display. Of course you could use the controls on your earphone, but this would come in handy if your iOS device is playing music on a bluetooth device.


Once you’ve installed Impulse, you can use the following gestures to invoke the respective actions:

  • Tap on the screen to play or pause a song.
  • Swipe left or right on the screen to go to change the track
  • Swipe up or down on the screen to increase or decrease the volume.

Also, the tweak only becomes active when there’s music playing, otherwise it sleeps to preserve battery. You can enable/disable the tweak from the Settings menu and also adjust the idle threshold. The threshold option lets you adjust how long you want the tweak to run after the music has stopped playing.

Another option called ‘Smart Tap’ makes sure that unwanted taps don’t happen and requires an additional tap before you can input gestures.

Impulse is available in the BigBoss repo for $1.99. It’ll work with any other third-party app as well. Try it out and let us know what you think of it.

Adding ringtones to your iOS device can be a real pain. Here’s a new Cydia tweak that makes downloading and adding ringtones to your iOS device painless. It’s called EZRingtones and lets you download ringtones from popular website Audiko and Zedge.


Apple doesn’t allow users to download ringtones and add them to the Ringtones list in iOS. With the help of the EZRingtones tweak, you can download your favourite ringtones from Audiko or Zedge and have them show up in the Ringtones list automatically.

To use EZRingtones, you’ll need to have both Audiko and Zedge apps installed. Now whenever you download a ringtone using either the Audiko or Zedge app, it’ll be automatically available in Settings>Sounds>Ringtone. If you like having your favourite song as your ringtone and you have a jailbroken device, you need to try this tweak now.

EZRingtones is available in the BigBoss repo for free and requires an iOS device running iOS 7 or later.

Here are three new jailbreak tweaks to check out for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

LabelShift – Move The SpringBoard Labels Up

LabelShift is a simple jailbreak tweak that allows you to move the SpringBoard application icon labels further up towards the icons. The tweak adds a preference pane to the default Settings app where you can configure its options. Check out the screenshots below to see the height adjusted at 0.00 (stock), 2.49 and 5.00.

If you want to try out this tweak, it is available in the BigBoss repo on Cydia for free. It requires iOS 7.

Launch Brightness – Brightness Level For Restarts / Resprings

The Launch Brightness tweak, developed by Skumar Space, allows you to set a custom brightness level when the SpringBoard is launched. This is helpful for when you reboot or respring your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and the brightness level is low. You can now set it to stay at a custom brightness. Configure its options from the stock Settings application.

Launch Brightness is available for free from the BigBoss repository.

ScrubAround – A Round Scrubber For Your Music

If you would like to change the stock music grabber, which is a vertical line, then you want to check out this tweak by iOS developer Ron Thakrar. ScrubAround replaces the stock music grabber with a round grabber, making it easier to grab and is more native looking. Check out the screenshots below to see this tweak in action on the Control Center and lock screen.
