    iOS7: JailBreak Status Thread (Official)

    I had the same experience. The time shown for the available backup was the later one that was done as part of the update. I used it, and it was indeed the full backup I had done prior to the upgrade. Had me confused, but relieved, that all my info was restored.

    Will updating iOS remove jail break

    I also made the jump from 5.1.1 to 7.0.4 (then to 7.0.6). You're definitely right, the battery life really took a hit. I also feel it now takes longer to charge. Beyond that, it was getting a bit cranky on 5.1.1, and is now running flawlessly. :)

    iOS7: JailBreak Status Thread (Official)

    OK, maybe I'm not clear on what the "restore from backup" accomplishes. Can you elaborate what I can reclaim from the backup done in step 1? I appreciate your patience.

    iOS7: JailBreak Status Thread (Official)

    Marilyn- I have a question about step 4- iTunes restore from backup. In previous JB's, I'd do a backup, then put it in DFU, and restore as new. I then JB, and then connect to iTunes. iTunes immediately does a backup, but since it's restored as new, there's nothing to back up. Now, the data I...

    Tweak to show date on status bar?

    When I was JB'd on iOS 5, I had a tweak that put the date next to the clock. The amount of available ram was also shown, but I'm not sure this was done with the same tweak, and I'm not particularly interested in this. Now that I'm JB'd on iOS 7, I'd like to have the date shown again, but I don't...

    Automatically close folders?

    On another site I was looking at, FolderCloser was listed as being IOS 7 compatable. I've installed it and it appears to be working fine.

    Automatically close folders?

    I've recently jumped from IOS 5.1 to IOS 7. One of the tweaks I really miss is FolderCloser. I'm wondering if there is another option available that would serve a similar function. Thanks.

    Official IOS6 Jailbreak Status Thread

    I'm happily JB'd on 5.1.1, but a part of me would like to upgrade to the latest IOS and JB. A concern I have is with an app I use a lot- TIVO. This app was updated a while back, and the update has JB detection. I never updated the app because of this. In addition, I have many apps that have had...

    iPad as a GPS

    By plan a route on your PC, do you mean be able to specify taking certain roads versus what the program calculates your route should be?

    Audio Source

    If I understand correctly, for your truck, you're only trying to keep the phone charged while using the gps. All you would need is to pick up a cigarette lighter USB plug. Cord your phone into it, and the it will charge, but the audio will conintue to output from the phone, or wherever you cord...

    Swipeselection now avaiable on Cydia

    I like this tweak, but I'm having some issues with it. It works ok in most data entry situations, but not all. As I'm typing this message, the gestures don't work (I'm using Atomic Browser) . It also does not work when entering text into a text document with Quickoffice. Oddly though, the...

    safari and atomic web wont play youtube videos

    I run into this with Atomic as well. When it occurs, I go into settings and change "Identify Browser As" to Default Mobile Safari. (I usually have it set to Safari Desktop). The video then promptly loads.

    Printing From The iPad For a Windows User Question, Please ?

    I also have an older printer connected to my pc via USB. I use a program on my Pc called Fingerprint. With Fingerprint installed, I can print from any app on my iPad that offers printing. It works flawlessly. Fingerprint costs $10 if I remember correctly. As you mentioned, you will need a router.

    Editing PDF titles in iBooks

    I've had mixed success changing PDF titles with Goodreader. Sometimes the new/changed title shows up in iBooks, and sometimes it doesn't. I haven't been able to figure out why this happens.

    Help with retinapad!

    What you need to do is press the Home button to close the game. Then, double press the Home button to show the multitasking bar, press and hold the game's icon until it wiggles, and press the Red minus sign on the icon. This "kills" the app. When you reopen the app, RetinPad will then work.

    iKeywi HD for iPad - The new 5-Row Keyboard Tweak!

    I've tried both. I couldn't get iKeywi to not crash Quickoffice. 5 Row Customizable Keyboard for iPad works fine. It was a little strange getting it set up, but i finally have it like I want. So far I'm liking it.

    iKeywi HD for iPad - The new 5-Row Keyboard Tweak!

    I've installed iKeywi HD. Now, when I try to open a document in Quickoffice, it starts to open and then closes. I've restarted my iPad with no change. I then uninstalled iKeywi, and my Quickoffice docs open as they should. I re-installed iKeywi and the problem returned. Thanks for any advice...

    Flash app

    I've tried many and have settled on Photon Flash Web Browser. They all leave something to be desired, but I think this one performs the best. It has a bandwidth setting, which I set to 6 (highest). When I come across a video that won't play on my preferred browser, I copy/paste the URL to...

    Upgrade to latest IOS and keep backed up data?

    I have a question about PKGBackup. I made a backup with it prior to upgrading to 5.0.1. I'm not sure all my JB tweaks were IOS 5 ready. When I restore the backup, I'm thinking I might have some issues. Any thoughts?

    Upgrade to latest IOS and keep backed up data?

    I feel dumb asking this, but I haven't been able to find the answer. I'm ready to make the leap from 4.3.3 to 5.0.1 to await a JB for ipad2. Will I have the option to restore my backed up data/music/pictures etc. as part of the upgrade? Also, I don't know if I've complicated things. A few...

    What if.....

    My ipad2 3G/GSM is currently jailbroken at 4.3.3. I'm quite happy where things are at, but would love to be JB'd at 5.0.1. Now, my what if- I will be traveling a week from now, for about 10 days. What if the 5.0.1 JB is released during that time, and Apple quickly releases 5.1. What can I...

    can we print from the ipad???

    I do not have a wireless printer. I've tried a couple of printing apps with varying amounts of success and frustration. Based on this thread, I tried Fingerprint. I am very impressed. Now, when I'm in an app and click print, boom, there's my printer, and my document prints perfectly. Couldn't be...

    The Clock App is actually the name of the app that I use. It is an iPad app found in the App Store. Works well for me.

    Quickoffice Pro spreadsheet question

    I finally was able to delete the rows. Instead of selecting a row to be deleted by highlighting the cells themselves, I needed to highlight the row number, which then highlights that row.Simple and straightforward. No wonder I missed it.

When I press the button for this, the choices to add rows/columns are highlighted, but the ones to delete rows/columns are grayed out. Selecting the row to be...

    USB flash drive

    In order to play a movie, does the movie's file first need to be copied from the card or flash drive to the iPad? I assume the player can't play it directly from the card.

    Whis is this photo question so difficult to answer

    I had this happen once. Somehow iTunes was looking at a different folder for photos then the one I had set up. I had to redirect it to the proper one and I was good again.
