    Sorry, I've got another question for you. When I jail broke yesterday I checked off something about enabling boot logo and gestures. I am running 4.3.3. Does boot logo work with this version (if so, how do i change it) and what exactly does the gestures option give me?

    Boot logo works with 4.3.3, just download one from Cydia. Gestures are simple. Just pinch 4-5 fingers on the screen to go to the home screen. Swipe 4-5 fingers up to see the multitasking bar, swipe 4-5 fingers left or right to switch open apps. The gesture settings can be found in the settings app.

    To get bootlogos installed, you must install a Cydia package called "animate". It will also get automatically installed whenever you install a bootlogo. Try "Animate Apple", which is nice, and my favourite iPad one. The two default logos which come with "animate" are iPhone, so look weird on our device. iPad bootlogos are available, but are few and far between. You'll have to search for them.

    Once installed, go into the settings App and scroll down the left to "BootLogo" and tick the one you want. Next, reboot, and you should see it work!

    Hope that helps.

    I do not see gestures in settings and those gestures you mention don't do anything when I try them.

    Just to double check, you don't see the options in the bottom right of the attached screenshot?

    If not then it doesn't sound like you enabled the option on redsn0w. Haven't heard of them just not appearing. You can run redsnow again over the top of your current setup, and just check the gestures option ONLY. That should enable it if missing. Just don't check anything else though. You won't overwrite or lose anything if you do this.

    Hope that helps.

    No problem. Sometimes its best to show a pic!

    Have you got SwitcherMod installed? If so turn OFF "Show Current App". That stops swipe between apps working.
