When you jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, there are a few essential tweaks that it’s recommended for every jailbroken iDevice user to download and use. Perhaps at the top of that list is the famous SBSettings tweak. If you don’t have this tweak installed already, get it now. Here’s why.
Let’s say you were in a movie theater, or a classroom, when suddenly the lights went dim. Your phone is emitting extremely bright light, and everyone can see where it’s coming from. You need to turn down the brightness of your iPhone, and you need to turn it down fast. So what would you have to do?
You’ll have to go to the springboard, open up your Settings app, click on the brightness option within Settings, and then finally turn it down. So what if this process could be done much more quickly and easily?
Now you can. With SBSettings, you can quickly access a lot of toggles which let you mess with a bunch of settings, anywhere on your iDevice. In the middle of playing a game? No problem. Watching a movie? No problem. With a gesture you set in the Activator jailbreak app (comes with SBSettings, or many jailbreak tweaks you may have already downloaded) you can access SBSettings from anywhere.
By default, SBSettings comes with the abilities to enable and disable Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G/4G, Data, and location services. You also have the option to kill processes, change your device’s brightness, as well as respring and reboot your device instantly. The tweak works flawlessly and never crashes, so it’s recommended for everyone to download as it’s sure to come in handy sometime while using your iDevice.
To further prove how popular this tweak is, there is a whole section of addons for SBSettings available on Cydia. These range from additional toggles for SBSettings, to embedding SBSettings into Notification Center.
The only downside to SBSettings is that in a few games, sometimes SBSettings can come up when you don’t want it to. However, this is easily fixed by changing the way it’s activated within the Activator application.
SBSettings is free, and there is no reason you should not have it on your iDevice. If you haven’t already, go download it off of Cydia today. You won’t regret it.
