    Ultimate List of Jailbreak Tweaks

    Since people ask for apps and tweaks here I will do the same. I am looking for a tweak that enables me to specify a different email notification sound for each of my contacts. In particular, I want no sound for most emails but if they are from certain email accounts I want to be notified by a...

    Lost icon on ipad2

    Mine is jailbroken. I have no idea if the original poster's pad is. But it probably is since the other similar reports seem to be on jailbroken devices.

    Lost icon on ipad2

    I can't be 100% certain, but I think that the problem is that some icons has become pure white boxes. This has happened to me as well. I don't know what tweak/app I installed just prior to this. The first thing I noticed was a bunch of completely new icons that I hadn't seen before. They are all...

    Version control? SVN client?

    Hi, I have been searching for a while and I came up rather empty. Is there a good SVN client for the iPad? The only one I managed to find so far is iVersion, but that has a few problems: * It is developed for iPhone, no iPad sized version appears to be available. * According to one of the...

    Cydia feature request - How and where?

    Awesome, thanks. Good thing I posted here before sending that email. ;)

    Cydia feature request - How and where?

    Ok, I was hoping for something like a Sourceforge project, JIRA or some other kind of bug/feature tracker. I suppose that I'll have to try a plain email instead. Browsing for new tweaks annoys me to no end, I have no interest in "themes" and it seems as if 99% of the tweaks are just that. A...

    Cydia feature request - How and where?

    Hi, is there an official way to make feature requests for Cydia? Just emailing Saurik sounds a bit crude and I have a feeling that requests sent that way might drown in the flood. I searched the web but found nothing that seemed even remotely official.

    Ultimate List of Jailbreak Tweaks

    I just tested KBShortcuts v1.2 on my iPad2 with iOS 5.0.1 and it seems to work well. However, before installing this I could drag the keyboard to a new position but now I only get a menu with the option to split or undock. I am not 100% certain that this was a change introduced by KBShortcuts or...

    To upgrade or not to upgrade...

    I apologise for the repeated double post, but has anyone tested "SwirlyMessage for iPad 3G" or "KBShortcuts" on iOS 5.0.1, iPad2 GSM? I would like to be able to send and receive SMS natively on my iPad and I have grown dependent on the "cursor" keys of KBShortcuts. Before my upgrade I purchased...

    To upgrade or not to upgrade...

    Yes, unfortunately some of the tweaks I used does not work on iOS 5. But I am looking for suitable replacements.

    Ok, I got my replacement iPad today and now it is time to take it out of jail. :-) Edit: jail broken, restored and sync in progress. Looks good so far.

    To upgrade or not to upgrade...

    Thanks. I saved both the "dpkg -l" output and took screen shots of the list in Cydia to be safe. :-) Now it feels odd. I am no longer jailbroken. Scary feeling to be back in jail. I tested the mic again since Apple support insisted that it could be a software error. Of course it wasn't. Still...

    To upgrade or not to upgrade...

    Would "dpkg -l" be a good way to make that list of installed tweaks? It looks about right at first glance, but of course it shows all packages - not only ones i have selected to install but also packages that the ones I chose depends on. Do you think that I will be able to find all my tweaks...

    To upgrade or not to upgrade...

    Thanks for the input. I will at least investigate the possibility of a replacement. I don't quite see a future of me going nuts on the facetime thing, but it annoys me that the pad is broken.

    To upgrade or not to upgrade...

    The agony of indecision. I have a jailbroken iPad2 3G GSM, OS 4.3.3. I have several JB tweaks installed and i recently discovered that the built-in mic is, and probably always has been, broken. Since I made this discovery I have been fretting about restoring my pad to factory settings and asking...

    Airport security question

    At Zurich airport I was asked to put my iPad in a separate bin and when I asked about it, the staff said that an iPad was classified as a laptop. If that was her own classification or the general one for Zurich airport, I do not know.

    Tried a screen protector but disgarded it.

    When I bought my iPad2 I also bought a Belkin Clearscreen protector. As I feared that it would be difficult to put it on, I asked the staff in the shop to put it on for me - they refused. I asked in a few other shops, Apple certified shops, all refused. So I put it on myself with terrible...

    JB iPad2 3G No Longer Works

    I got scared when the iPad kept saying that the 3G network was restricted after installing the recent jail break update, but the good people here instructed me to simply reboot my device and that made everything fine again.

    Can i turn my iPad 2 into a Hotspot Device?

    PdaNet, another app in Cydia, also does this and I can confirm that it works on iPad2. (OS v4.3.3)

    Flash?

    Discussions on this topic appear to deteriorate into arguments about wether or not flash is a good thing, or "if you don't like it as it is - don't buy an iPad". As I see it, the issue is not about that. The question is, as was touched earlier in this thread: Is an iPad a computer? If an iPad...

    Ipad cases/sleeve also for macbook pro

    Some time after I bought my iPad I went to a certified Apple store (as in physical shop) to get some help with applying a protective film on the device. While I was waiting for my turn I browsed the various sleeves and cases that were available and picked one. However, when it was my turn, the...

    iPad2 lost GSM after "critical update" in Cydia July, 14

    You are a life-saver. :-) I had rebooted my device between now and then, but I am quite certain that there was no GSM coverage in the area the device was in when it booted up last time. Perhaps that was the reason - the network had to be there on startup. I was worried and the simplest trick...

    iPad2 lost GSM after "critical update" in Cydia July, 14

    Hi, I was happy with my jailbroken iPad2, 4.3.3 until I installed the "critical update" that Cydia prompted a few days ago, while I was on holiday. I saw Comex twittered about it and figured that it would be best to install it. Since then, my iPad refuses to connect to my 3G operator with the...

    iPad2 as WiFi access point

    It feels good to be out of jail. I installed PDAnet using Cydia and it appears as if the network sharing works fine. The toggle for SBSettings didn't work for me, though. Seems as if the PDAnet process crashed and wouldn't go away until reboot. But I suppose that I can live without that toggle.

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Chat Thread

    I admit that I know far less about the JB details than I want to, but as I understand it, the previous process required moving a lot of original files. The unionfs allows making "mirrors" of these files, meaning that they can be left where Apple intended them to be. I think that the fewer...

    iPad2 as WiFi access point

    Thanks for the suggestions. I know that I can connect to an ad-hoc WiFi network hosted by my laptop, but that implies that I have to put the SIM card in my PC and since I mostly want it in my iPad I'd have to move it around between devices. I also experienced firewall issues, those issues could...

    iPad2 as WiFi access point

    ...which, of course isn't possible yet. :( Thanks for the quick response, but does anyone know what "reasoning" Apple might have, backing this silly decision? I find it very limiting, being forced to move my SIM card between my laptop and iPad just to access the Internet and I most...

    iPad2 as WiFi access point

    Hi, one can easily turn an iPhone4 into a WiFi access point by enabling Internet sharing in Settings. Why is this feature not available on my iPad2 with OS version 4.3.3? I read somewhere that the 3G provider needs to allow this, but empirical testing show that this isn't the full truth. A...
