Cydia Updates: Protect Your Jailbreak With Reset Killer

Jailbreakers get nervous going anywhere near their Settings app when there is an iOS update that will block their jailbreak exploit. The free Cydia tweak ResetAllKiller aims to give jailbreakers a little peace of mind by disabling the "reset all" buttons in the Reset panel. It may be a little paranoid, but it's always better to be safe than sorry.

ResetAllKiller is free in the BigBoss repo. It's compatible with iOS 4 and 5.

Use Custom Gestures to Unlock Your Jailbroken iPhone

App Store developer Adam Bell has released a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to customize the way you unlock your iPhone. Stride replaces your password screen with a customizable gesture system allowing you to do away with lengthy passwords. Or it can double as an extra security measure by allowing you to use a gesture and password to access your iPhone.

"Even though Stride is pretty secure on it's own, for best effect you should set a PIN/Passcode to make things extra secure," Bell explained on Cydia. The PIN unlock will appear after you draw your customized gesture, or you can bypass the PIN code in the Stride preference panel. Stride is available in the Big Boss repo for $2.99. It's compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch, but not the iPad. Stride requires iOS 5 or higher and a jailbroken device to work.

Simplify Your iPhone Home Screen With This Tweak

If you're looking for a way to simplify your home screen on demand, DockHide can be installed for free from the Cydia jailbreak app store. This tweak provides an easy way to hide the home screen dock, leaving only the icons and a clean, organized look.

Hiding the dock does not affect scrolling left to right, and you can bring the dock back to the home screen at any time with a simple gesture. Gestures to hide the dock can be configured through a simple Activator function, such as triple pressing the home button.
