How to Change your iPhone or iPad Root Password

December 5, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


Many people still believe that jailbreaking an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad is a harmful thing to do. This is not entirely false, in the past, I have seen many people getting their jailbroken iOS device hacked or unauthorized access. As the result, some of their important data was stolen. On the brighter side, not every user who jailbreak their iPhone and iPad will face this issue.

From personal experiences and research, a jailbroken device is actually more secure than an iPhone or iPad that isn’t. Why? Because there are jailbreak tweaks that allow you to set a passcode on individual applications, lock certain features, and much more. As long as you’re aware of what you are installing then nothing bad will happen.


How to add Hardware Specs to your iPhone’s Settings app

December 4, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


Apple didn’t do a good job on providing a detailed information about their iPhone and iPad models to customers. Users can easily find their iOS version, capacity, their Network, how many applications are installed, Serial Number, Carrier, and all those basic info. However, the low-end specs of its iOS devices are kept hidden from users. We’re talking about the number of CPU cores, RAM, CPU clock speed, and many more.

Surprisingly, a jailbreak developer were able to release a simple tweak on Cydia that provide all the hardware specifications of an iPhone or iPad and present them nicely within the stock Settings app. The same place you would go to just to see some of the basic details we provided above.

This jailbreak tweak is called HardwareSpecs and once installed, it will create another setting page under the General tab. In order to check what type of hardware Apple has included in your iOS device, simply go to Settings -> General -> Hardware Specs and all the hidden details are now revealed.

JailbreakTips & How-to

How to permanently delete photos without Recently Deleted folder

October 7, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


Starting from iOS 8, any deleted photos or videos from the Camera Roll will be transferred over to a new folder called Recently Deleted. This new album was added to store deleted media files on your iPhone or iPad for 30 days and it will then remove permanently after that.

For some people, this might be a useful feature because you can easily restore a deleted photo just in case of a mistake. However, most iOS users found Recently Deleted to be an annoying feature because they have to get rid of their photos and videos twice. Not to mention that the data will continue to be counted, which means your storage will stays the same as is.


How to fix Facetime Paused when you open other app in iOS

September 29, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


One of the biggest disadvantage when using Facetime is that the application will automatically stop recording you whenever you exit the app and go to a different apps, for example. Although, Facetime didn’t disconnect you entirely with the other person, your face or whatever it is that the camera is recording will appear as Paused.

Some users are fine with this because they will return back to Facetime right away. But the majority of iOS users want to multitask and so it will be beneficial if there is a way to prevents Facetime from pausing when you open any other app on your iPhone and iPad.

September 2, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


Apple operating system is well-known for its robust security and so on rare cases we see an iPhone or iPad being hacked. In the past, there were several incidents where hackers steal revenue by injecting their scripts to iOS devices and most recently over 220,000 iCloud accounts and passwords were stolen. Just because the iPhone operating system is really good when it comes to protecting you from malicious malware, that doesn’t mean it’s unbreakable.

A recent research from Palo Alto networks has discovered a new piece of malware called KeyRaider that aims at jailbroken users and their devices. This malware allows the hackers to steal Apple’s iCloud accounts. As up to this point, statistics showed that KeyRaider has helped hackers steal over 250,000 Apple accounts. These iCloud accounts do not just based in the U.S but also in many different countries where iPhone and iPad are popular, including China, Australia, France, Germany, South Korea, Singapore, and many more.

March 1, 2014 — by Xin Chan0


Apple redesigned how the App Switcher looks like and act in iOS 7 with inspirations from certain classic jailbreak tweaks like CardSwitcher and the old boring bottom grey switcher has gone. But have you ever been bothered with iOS 7 for scrolling through all the way to the left and right to get to certain page in the App Switcher? Or have you been annoyed with the narrow iPhone screen that is only able to display a little bit more than one app card? Unfortunately it is not easy to go back to iOS 6 classic app switcher easily now.

GridSwitcher is new jailbreak tweak from tom-go that changes the stock iOS 7 horizontal card switcher view to a grid view. It has no option to configure. Once installed you are good to use.

February 27, 2014 — by Xin Chan0


Eventually I gave this a try after all the criticisms have settled.

Ayeris is a new Winterboard theme for iOS 7 created by well-known designer Surenix with a controversial price tag of $3.99. The word ayeris, which is pronounced as Iris, like the ring-shaped membrane in your eye or the Greek god of the rainbow, is about communicating the excellence of timeless design to and for the world, according to Surenix in the package description. This appears to be what he strives for by releasing this new theme since the existence of ayecon, his iOS 6 based theme.
