There have been “App Store scammers” aplenty over the last few years, but this one really takes the biscuit. A new, universal application has recently appeared in the App Store, which disguises itself as the jailbreak “app store” Cydia, created by Jay Freeman.
A couple of days ago we told you how the iPhone Dev-Team was readying a new update for redsn0w, which would have the capacity to downgrade our beloved iOS devices to an earlier, jailbreak-able version of the mobile operating system.
Jailbreak fans: Are you tired of “AT&T,” “Verizon,” “Sprint” – or, in my case, “vodafone UK” – sitting atop your iPhone’s springboard? Do you wish it was possible to replace the boring, old text with something fun, perhaps even something iconic? If your answer to both questions was a resounding “YES,” consider downloading a free tweak called Zeppelin from the Cydia Store.
The "SemiTether" jailbreak tweak that allows users to reboot their jailbroken iOS device without connecting to a computer has recently been updated. Now, the package is more stable and can patch Safari to work in the non-jailbreak reboot mode.
ModMyi has recently launched "The Cydia Developer Directory" - a new website that allows users to find out information jailbreak devs, and the tweaks those developers have created and published in Cydia.
An upcoming jailbreak tweak called "SLShortcuts" promises to expand Spotlight's functionality on iOS devices. Once downloaded, the tweak allows users to configure custom text commands from within the Settings app, and launch them from the Spotlight search page.
The popular jailbreak application "MyWi" has recently received an update, which adds iOS 5 support and performance improvements. The app, which allowed users to tether via their iPhone long before iOS 4.3 did, is currently available to purchase in the Cydia Store for $19.99.
It can be a bit of a nightmare reading text in Safari for iPhone, simply because the font size is usually minuscule (meaning a lot of pinching-and-zooming is required). Fortunately, one new jailbreak tweak called "Magnifier for Safari" makes resizing website fonts for the iPhone simple and easy.
