New iPhone Tweak Makes Using Multiple AppStore Accounts Easier

The new jailbreak tweak AccountChanger helps you keep track of your multiple AppStore accounts by adding an "Accounts" button to the Update section of the AppStore. The latest version is beta so some bugs are being worked out. However, if you use more than one account this tweak could be helpful, and may be worth a look.

Jailbreak Tweaks

You can give the tweak a whirl by downloading it for free from the BigBoss repo in Cydia. AccountChanger requires iOS 5 or higher.

Activate Your iPhone's Camera from the Lock Screen with New Jailbreak Tweak

UPDATE: The tweak is now available in the BigBoss repo under CamFast.

iOS 5.1 adds a camera shortcut to your iPhone's Lock Screen. This is a great tool for non-jailbroken devices, but iPhone 4S owners who had to avoid 5.1 to keep their jailbreak are still stuck with the old Home Button option.

iPhone Camera Tweak

Just like the new icon, a new jailbreak tweak called FastCam allows jailbreak users easy access to their iPhone's camera from the Lock Screen. The tweak works with Activator actions like "Double Tap" from anywhere on your phone. Once installed, just choose the Activator option you would like to use, and you be able to quickly access your camera from any screen on your phone. FastCam can be slightly faster than the iOS 5.1 shortcut since you don't have to swipe up from the icon.

Jailbreak Reminder: Apple Not Signing iOS 5.0.1

As expected Apple has stopped signing iOS 5.0.1 with the release of iOS 5.1. If you own a jailbroken device you should not update to 5.1 because it breaks both the Corona untether and the Absinthe exploit. The Dev-Team warned both veteran and amateur jailbreakers about the dangers of upgrading on Wednesday.

iOS 5.1

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users who did not heed the warning won't be able to downgrade back to 5.0.1 even if they did save their SHSH blobs. People with earlier devices and saved SHSH blobs can downgrade with the assistance of geohot’s limera1n exploit. There is also a tethered jailbreak for non-A5 devices if you really have the urge to get to 5.1.

One advantage of HelloTotem.com is a quote up front of exactly what Totem is willing to pay. Accepting the quote puts the process in motion and a pre-paid mailer is sent to your address.

Dev-Team Announces Tethered Jailbreak For iOS 5.1

I'm not sure updating to iOS 5.1 is worth losing your untethered jailbreak, but non-A5 users can sacrifice their freedom if they want to. iPhone 4S users should avoid 5.1 if they want to keep their jailbreak. However, non-iPhone 4S owners can keep their devices jailbroken by downloading redsn0w 0.9.10b6. This version is a tethered 5.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices.

iOS 5.1

A tethered jailbreak requires that your device is plugged into a computer whenever turned on. Untethered jailbreaks offer the freedom of not using a computer every time your device reboots. Most jailbreakers prefer untethered to tethered. Since iOS 5.1 doesn't offer anything worth losing your untethered jailbreak over I would suggest avoiding it entirely. However, if you are dead set on getting to 5.1 read on for the Dev Team's warning and instructions.
