iH8sn0w iOS 6.1.3 p0sixspwn Jailbreak Now Available

It has been a crazy few days for the jailbreak community with the unexpected release of evasi0n 7 and its many controversies, but that hasn't stopped iH8sn0w and winocm from releasing their "drama free" iOS 6.1.3 - iOS 6.1.5 untether. The new jailbreak is called "p0sixspwn" and it is available now as a Cydia package. It allows iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th generation, and iPhone 3GS owners using redSn0w or sn0wbreeze to untether their devices. Here's iH8sn0w's instructions on how to install p0sixspwn:

p0sixspwn

1) Have a tethered jailbreak (either via redsn0w [Point to 6.0 IPSW] or sn0wbreeze).
2) Open Cydia.
3) Click the "Changes" tab in the footer.
4) Press the "Refresh" button in the top left corner.
5) After "Reloading Data", perform a search for "p0sixspwn" (the O is a zero).
6) Tap Install.

How can I fix Cydia error: Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of?

Sometimes Cydia on jailbroken iOS devices will run out of space in its data structure to host packages. The default repositories already contain approximately 40,000 packages, which leaves space for an extra 25,000 or so from repository sources added by the user. If this number is exceeded, you might see several errors including:

Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of.
Problem with MergeList
The package lists or status files could not be parsed or opened.

To fix this problem, follow these steps:

Chpwn Releases Gridlock 2.0 With iOS 6 Support

I finally upgraded from iOS 5.0.1 to iOS 6.1.2 and jailbroke my device using evasi0n. While I'm happy about being all caught up and ready for the iOS 6.1.3 patch, I was also disappointed to learn Apple changed how icon movement works. This means tweaks such as AlwaysArrange have been rendered useless on iOS 6. However, themers will be hapy to know jailbreak developer chpwn has updated the very popular jailbreak tweak Gridlock with iOS 6 support.

iPhone App Tweak

Gridlock 2.0 allows you to place your app icons anywhere on your Home screen without other apps replacing them. This gives you the ability to create different patterns, or to show off your wallpaper by moving apps out of the way. Gridlock 2.0 is much better than using blank icons or hiding apps with other jailbreak tweaks.

How to Replace Siri with Google Search [Jailbreak]

Google Search is getting rave reviews, and side-by-side comparisons have shown Google's voice assistant is much faster and sometimes more accurate than Apple's Siri. Jalbreakers who would like to kick Siri to the curb can do so by downloading the NowNow jailbreak utility from the BigBoss repo in Cydia. NowNow allows you to replace Siri by launching the Google Search app with an Activator function. To do so, just download the utility, locate the NowNow option under Settings and tap Activation Methods. You can then select the function you would like to use to activate the Google Search app. To replace Siri select "Short Hold" under the Home Button options. Holding the Home Button will now bring up the Google Search app instead of the Siri screen.
