First Touch ID Jailbreak Tweak Hits Cydia

It didn't take long for the first Touch ID tweak to land in the Cydia app store. Virtual Home allows you to use your Home button to access the app switcher or return to the Home screen without actually pressing down on the physical button. The tweak basically transforms your Touch ID sensor into a virtual Home button, hence the name.

Virtual Home

Once installed, Virtual Home users can tap their Home button once to return to their Home screen, or tap and hold their Home button to open the app switcher in iOS 7. These gestures replace the need to press the Home button which gives it a much needed break from all your finger poking.

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.

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.
