While that has reduced the need to use the Settings app if you’re a jailbreaker, there are still instances when you need to use the Settings app.
A nifty little jailbreak tweak called Pinnacle has just been released that makes navigating through the Settings app easier especially when it comes to settings that are hidden deep within the app.
It essentially gives you a quick way to get back to the first page of the Settings app using a simple tap and hold gesture. For example: If you want to change the “New Mail Sound” for one of your Mail accounts, you would launch the Settings app and navigate to Notifications -> Mail -> Mail Account -> New Mail Sound.
If you now want to change some other settings, you have to tap on the back button at the top left corner four times to get back to the first page of the Settings app. After installing Pinnacle, all you need to do is tap and hold to quickly jump back to the first page of the Settings app.
You can also enable the Show Menu option (Settings -> Pinnacle -> Show Menu On/Off toggle), it will show you the history when you tap and hold on the back button so you can jump to relevant page on the Settings app.
Here’s a brief demo of the jailbreak tweak in action:
The cool thing about the tweak is that it works with any app and not just limited to the Settings app. It should work well with any app with a UI navigation bar.
Pinnacle has been developed by Josh Kugelmann (ProtoSphere) & Idhanta. It is available for free on Cydia. If you’re on a jailbroken device then you can tap on the download link below to install it from Cydia.
