November 23, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


One of the many things that iPhone and iPad users are concern about are the facts they might break their power and home buttons. These buttons are important than anything else because if something goes wrong, they can save your life. For example, if the device is put into recovery mode, you will need the power button to turn it back on or else the device become useless until you install third-party software on a computer to fix it.


iTouchSecure tweak for iOS 9 will replace in-app password with Touch ID

November 23, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


It’s nearly pointless to enter password manually when your iPhone or iPad is Touch ID built-in. Although most applications will only require you to enter your password once or whenever you reinstall the app, reset it, or did an update. Not to mention after a period of time some users won’t be able to remember their password and the process of retrieving it back might be a hassle.

To make it easier for iPhone and iPad owners with Touch ID, there is a jailbreak tweak called iTouchSecure for iOS 9 that allows you to use your Touch ID instead of password in most applications, including third-part apps like Facebook, Chrome, Twitter, and many other.

November 20, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


When it comes to customizing a jailbroken device, there are many different options. But we have to admit that Springtomize 3 by Filippo Biga would always be part of our recommendation. This is the ultimate customization tweak that allows users to make changes across their iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Normally, you won’t be able to customize your iOS device after a jailbreak, yet, because you would need to get a few tweaks that let you do so. While most tweaks will only provide a few settings and functionality to users, Springtomize 3 include everything in one package and all the customization settings are available in one app.

Specifically, the update brings fixes for corrupt extensions, often used by the developer for obfuscation purposes. In previous versions, Saurik made an attempt to have Cydia detects whether the upcoming tweaks will cause crashing or not, as a result, Cydia Substrate ending crashing itself.

November 16, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


Last week I wrote a tutorial on how to get RetroArch, an alternative emulator to NDS4iOS for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

As the title suggested, this tutorial will show you how to get the good old NDS4iOS back and running smoothly on jailbroken and non-jailbroken iOS 9 devices. This version should work with iOS 9.0 – 9.1, 9.2, and Cydia is not required. Let’s get straight to it.

November 14, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


Just like photos, videos, and documents, your downloaded songs should also be back up once awhile, whether that’s through a computer or cloud server. For some people, this might not be a convenient way since it deals with a computer, going to a specific folders, and such things.

A new jailbreak tweak called MusicExplorer is here to help you get over that long process of backing up all the music on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The major goal of this Cydia tweak is for users to not touch any other device or operating system rather than their iOS devices. MusicExplorer allows you to backup or share music from your iOS music library in the .zip form, send an individual song via a text message, email attachment, or upload them to cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox.

Cercube 3 tweak lets you download YouTube videos and remove ads

November 13, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


Without doing much research, I can immediately tell that download videos are one of the most requested features on YouTube. Not only when users use it on the Web but also on their smartphone, specifically iPhone and other devices such as iPod touch and iPad.

Of course, with today’s technologies you can easily create a third party software or app and can immediately download any videos on YouTube. The web version is quick, easy, and friendly. But when it comes to mobile applications that allow you to quickly download YouTube videos, expect some popups, infinite ads, and much more.

How to Install RetroArch Emulator for iOS 9 – 9.0.2

November 9, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


One of the easiest ways you can download free and paid games on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is from the App Store. In fact, if your iOS device is not jailbroken, this is the only method. With that being said, iPhone and iPad with Cydia installed can use an emulator such as Nd4iOS, GBA, and RetroArch to install games from other devices on your iPhone.

Apple has become really strict when it comes to installing an emulator or any unsigned applications on their product. However, Cydia will help you get rid of that restriction and allows you to get any emulators. As you may know, ND4iOS (Nintendo emulator) is no longer available, and the Game Boy Advance only supports iOS 8, so we are left with the only solution, which is RetroArch.
