I was wondering if anyone knew of a backgrounder alternative, I'm currently jailbroken on IOS 6.1 and as many of you may know backgrounder doesn't work as it causes the springboard to crash and go into safe mode. I actually would only need something to keep wifi on even when I lock the screen, I don't really need to background all apps, for the music I use Play Tube and the apple standard background works pretty well although stops playing with some app/game. Is there any way to keep the wifi on while the iPad is locked? I noticed that as soon as I go into the lock screen (without even unlocking it) the wifi comes back on. I'll be extremely grateful to anyone that can help me with this.
Have a look for/at the tweak "Insomnia." According to the description, it "allows applications to continue to run and WiFi to stay connected long after the screen has been switched off." It also states it supports iOS 6.1. And, you can get an SBSettings toggle so you can turn it on an off.
Ive not tried this on iOS 6.1 - but i don't see why it wont work. So, try this?
