Vex is an upcoming tweak that will give you the ability to theme your Notification Center and your Control Center, just by selecting the theme within the settings and respringing your device. There’s quite a few themes to check out as well.
Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks
There are times when you want to pause a video recording and resume it later. Unfortunately, this is not possible in iOS 8 as you can only stop a video recording once started unlike other social networking apps which offer pause/resume features as well.
Last week, we reported on a $300 device called the IP Box, which was allowing repair shops and hackers to bypass passcodes and gain access to locked iOS devices. But it turns out that expensive hardware isn’t required; TransLock, a new utility for Mac, can do the same job over USB.
Leap Motion, the tiny box that brings motion controls to Macs and PCs, can be made to work with iOS, too. In the video below, developer Elias Limneos demonstrates how the device can enable cool, hands-free gesture controls on an iPhone, like the ability to turn over your hand to put your phone to sleep.
On twitter last week I asked for a tweak that would add an animation when I unlocked my device. Little did I know that there was already a tweak in development by @him_jbg to do just that. That tweak is called Transition and it will make unlocking your device a more customized experience.
In case you were busy last week and didn’t get a chance to take a look at Cydia, don’t worry as we have compiled a list of all the new tweaks that were released in the week which are worth trying out.
If you pay attention to your iPhone after it restarts, you will notice that unlocking your device requires you to enter a passcode. If you have enabled Touch ID, you’ll still be forced to enter the passcode before you can start using Touch ID. BioBoot is a new jailbreak tweak that lets you get rid of this frustration.
