Flex 2, a recent addition to the Cydia Store, is something special. Using the $3.99 package, jailbreakers - and even those with little or no knowledge of iOS development - can create and install their very own jailbreak tweaks from an iOS 5-, iOS 6-, or iOS 7-powered iDevice. Don’t like this or that about your favorite iOS app? No problem: Flex 2 can help you alter it.
Once downloaded and installed, Flex 2 adds a new app icon to the Home screen, and here users can access Flex 2’s options. Three tabs, “Patches,” “Cloud,” and “Info” are available, and the first of these allows users to modify aspects of installed iOS applications.
There’s actually a whole section of Reddit dedicated to Flex and Flex 2, and here jailbreakers have been sharing (and requesting) patches for various iOS apps since the original jailbreak application first launched in the Cydia Store. Browsing through this subthread will provide you with a great idea of what Flex 2 can do, and the options are pretty limitless: folks are using Flex to stop iOS apps from searching for updates, to alter the behavior of the iOS Home button, and much, much more.
However, if you’re not up to the challenge of creating your own Flex 2 patch, hitting the “Cloud” tab allows jailbreakers to browse and download the creations of others. You can view installed patches in a separate pane, or a list of popular third-party Flex 2 patches in another section of the application. Best of all, almost all of the patches you’ll come across don’t require a respring, making it easy for users to try out third-party patches and to uninstall them if they wish.
Flex 2 is fully compatible with both iOS 7 and ARM64-iDevices, but as mentioned, the developer has managed to maintain compatibility with both iOS 5 and iOS 6. The jailbreak app can be downloaded in the Cydia Store for $3.99 now.
