Unfold: Jailbreak Tweak Brings ‘Fold to Unlock’ Concept to Life

Last week we shared a really cool concept by Austin Kudin that replaced the slide to unlock gesture.

As we had hoped, the beautiful concept got the attention of the jailbreak community almost immediately. German iOS jailbreak developer Jonas Gessner has just released a new jailbreak tweak called Unfold that brings the ‘Fold to Unlock‘ concept to life.

The jailbreak tweak replaces Apple’s patented slide to unlock behavior with the cool fold up animation to reveal the Home screen just like the concept. If you’ve a passcode (which we hope you have) then the fold up animation will reveal the standard passcode entry page.

The tweak is fully compatible with Lock screen jailbreak tweaks such as IntelliScreenX, LockInfo etc.

Check out the video of iDownloadBlog’s hands-on preview of Unfold below:

Unfold is available for free in Cydia via the BigBoss repo and is currently supports the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Do you like it better than the default slide to unlock gesture? It’s certainly more creative. Let us know in the comments.
