How to Install NDS4iOS Emulator on iOS 9 – 9.2 [No Jailbreak]

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. The reason for that being ND4iOS is no longer support iOS 9 and it was removed from its developer repo. This is a really bad news for a lot of iOS users, especially the one that still want to play some of the newer Pokemon on their iPhone or 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.

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.

Even though Apple has made some changes to their App Switcher in iOS 9, the features, how it function remain the same, and there is definitely room for improvements. A new jailbreak tweak on Cydia today called Lylac is here to add more features and give users the ability to customize iOS 9 App Switcher.

As far as functionality, Lylac allows users to combine both Control Center and App Switcher together. Thus, making it extremely easy to use different toggles, music controls, and see which applications is running on the background. Lylac also works really well with newer iPhone models (6s/6s Plus).


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.

3D Touch not working or lagging? 3DNoLag tweak is here to fix

October 25, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


3D Touch is something that Apple recently added into their iPhone 6s and there are definitely some problems with it. This feature allows you to quickly launch specific settings just by holding on the app’s icon. Not all applications for iOS will have support for this feature, but a majority of our stocks applications does. For example, when using 3D Touch on the you will be able to quickly take a Selfie, capture a video/photo without actually launching the app itself.

This is great and all that but sometimes this feature does lag too. If you’re tired of the constant lagging while launching 3D Touch, this jailbreak tweak called 3DNoLag can help. Just like any other new features, it has bugs and need more improvements. While we wait for Apple to release official fixes, why not use an alternative.

iOS 9 brings many helpful features that Apple did not introduce to its users at the press event in San Francisco, one of these include Wi-Fi Assist and the name already suggest that it has to do with internet connection.

Wi-Fi Assist in iOS 9 is designed to help iPhone & iPad users optimize their network performance and continue to use the same internet speed, if not better, by switching to mobile data network instead of regular wireless.
