FullForce Hack: Stretch iPhone 4 Apps to Fit on iPhone 5 Screen

Thanks to Evasi0n team, now we can go back to our regular programming – and that includes installation of tweaks, altering our iOS fonts, interface, themes and more.

The perks of having a jailbroken iOS device offer more features and smart functionality to make our lives productive and efficient. Don’t you just love the Activator? It’s easier to navigate and access settings unlike before.

Cydia offers a wide range of tweaks to the iOS community including features that were overlooked by app developers and Apple such as the stock screens of legacy apps that doesn’t fit in iPhone 5.


Thanks to Ryan Petrich’s new jailbreak tweak called FullForce, from the name itself – it forces legacy apps to show in full screen mode on taller devices such as the iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th generation. It’s pretty neat.

Want to try it on iPhone 5? Here’s how:

  1. Download FullForce from Cydia store ($0.99)
  2. Respring your device for the changes to take effect.
  3. Go to Settings and browse “FullForce.” The tweak will show you the legacy apps that need full stretch.

FullForce tweak works seamlessly to the current untethered version. Aside from the legacy apps shown on Settings that are included in smart list, whenever there is a new legacy app that needs to be stretched, this tweak will display a dialog box asking if you want to stretch the app.

In reality, the developers are responsible in updating legacy apps with compatible resolution to iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5. Is it because of laziness, that until now we still have outdated screen resolutions?

Dubious it may seem. Do you beg to disagree?

Yet, there’s always a way if one wishes to make it happen. Thanks to Ryan Petrich for this unique hack. Kudos to this genius!

Would you consider installing this tweak on your device?

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
