    Disabling Multitasking

    I'm trying to disable the native multitasking on 4.2.1. ive tried the only two methods I could find...the MyOS app on cydia and the method through winterboard...neither one of them worked. Any ideas?

    Kind of depends what you mean by disabling...

    You could use backgrounder and set its defaults to ensure nothing multitasks as standard.

    If you are trying to remove it from the user interface, that is less straight forward and I can't help you... Sorry.

    I tried using backgrounder, but it seems that even when I would designate something run in backgrounder ( wiimpte music controls) and I would use the remove background app to clear the native multitasking it takes out wiimote music controls as well. And it would also remove the mail app's ability to check for mail in the background even though I had it set to only run under native backgrounding. With back grounder uninstalled, remove background will remove the app from multitasking but not affect it's ability to receive mail in the background.

    If you don't mind a little manual tweaking, you can try the following:

    - Using iFile, go to the directory "/System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app"
    - Look for a file named "N82AP.plist" or similar (like "N88AP.plist", etc.)
    - Search for <multitasking>, and change the value from <true/> to <false/>
    - Restart

    Let me know if it works out for you.

    Yes, the other one is the right one.

    I hate multi-tasking. I like the thought, but the layout is stupid. It keeps everything open, and to fully close it I need to double click the home button, press and hold, and turn off.

    I wish I could just select what apps I want to stay open do. The rest close when I press home.

    I always use safari, email, friendly (facebook). The others not so much so a pita to close them out.
