Quickly Turn On or Off ‘Do Not Disturb’ With New SBSettings Toggle


Ever since Apple added the Do Not Disturb feature in iOS 6 (which is one of my favorite iOS 6 features), I was waiting for a Cydia developer to develop a SBSettings toggle that allows me to quickly turn it on or off from anywhere in iOS.

I’ve some good news if you were waiting for it as well. Ryan Petrich, developer of popular jailbreak tweaks such as ProSwitcherDeepEndColor Profiles Rotation Inhibitor etc. has just released the SBSettings toggle for Do Not Disturb, so you can quickly turn it on or off from the SBSettings drop down menu or from Notification Center.

To install it, you need to add Ryan Petrich’s repo to Cydia using the following URL: http://rpetri.ch/repo/

In case you need help, follow these simple steps:

  • Launch Cydia
  • Tap on the Manage tab at the bottom
  • Then tap on Sources
  • Tap on the Edit button at the top right corner and then tap the Add button
  • Enter the following URL – http://rpetri.ch/repo/ and tap on Add Source button
  • After Petrich’s repo has been successfully added it, tap on Return to Cydia button
  • Tap on the Search tab and search for “Do Not Disturb”
  • Tap on Do Not Disturb Toggle from the search results and tap on Install and then Confirm button to install it
  • After it is successfully installed, it will prompt you to restart the Springboard, tap on the button.

That’s it, now when you swipe on the status bar, you should see the DonotDisturb toggle in SBSettings drop down or Notification Center.


The SBSettings toggle makes it a lot easier to use the Do Not Disturb feature, as you can also turn it on or off even from the Lock screen, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of unlocking your iPhone and launching the Settings app to do it.

Thanks Ryan!

      The initial version was buggy. Ryan has release an update, which should fix the issue.

      It will stay on, if you have DND scheduled to be on during that time. I find that this toggle doesn’t override the scheduled time.

    Might want to mention in this article that you also have to enable it by opening SBSettings and going to More>Set Window Toggles and then turn this toggle to ON, or else it won’t appear in SBSettings.

      I didn’t have to enable it explicitly. The DNB toggle was available in the SBSettings dropdown window after I installed it.

    I’m receiving an internal server error message when I attempt to install. Do I need to just keep trying?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      Yup, the repository may be having an issue. It may be a good idea to try after sometime.

    I have no schedules set, but the DND Toggle is not working via SBSettings.The icon only shows up in the Status bar. Reinstalled but no change.
