There have been a couple of status bar-related jailbreak tweaks appearing in the Cydia Store, including MonoBar – which removes double-height status bars – and Monocle, which removes the status bar altogether (so users can enjoy true full-screen apps). Now, a new jailbreak tweak called ‘NCFullStatusBar’ promises to ensure that Notification Center will always displays all of the information it houses, even when invoked from within a full-screen iOS app.
Here’s the problem. If you’re in a full-screen app (like Tiny Wings, for example), the status bar information, like battery percentage and cellular signal strength, is obviously hidden. However, even when Notification Center is invoked, these important snippets of information remain hidden, meaning the only way to check whether your iPad is going to die on you any time soon is to leave the app, and check on the tablet’s battery life from the Home screen. Bummer, right?
NCFullStatusBar promises to be the solution. Once downloaded and installed, this simple and free jailbreak tweak adds standard status bar information to Notification Center, when NC is invoked from within a full-screen app. Meaning that in order to check on battery life while playing Tiny Birds, jailbreakers using this tweak simply have to invoke Notification Center: battery life et al. will be there, ready for the reading.
Obviously, this tweak isn’t going to change your life, but could be a handy addition to any jailbroken iDevice. As mentioned, NCFullStatusBar is available to download in the Cydia Store now for free, via the BigBoss repository. For more information on the package, take a look at the video walkthrough below, which is provided by Jailbreak Nation.
