[Guide] How To Close All Running Apps With Just A Swipe

Many of us waste time in closing running apps everyday. Double-Clicking Home Button, Pressing Icons and then Closing Them takes a lot of time if you have a lot of apps running.

So, I present a solution to all those people who waste their time in closing these apps or people who have a broken home button.

The name of the Tweak is SwipeAway and is available in the ModMyi repository(http//:apt.modmyi.com/). BTW ModMyi Repo is added in your Cydia by default.

As easily understood by the name of tweak, SwipeAway is a new app for jailbroken iOS devices that allows you to close all applications running in the background with a simple swipe gesture.

SwipeAway closes all applications running in the background on your iPhone in just couple of seconds. How to do it? Simply select a specific activation gesture between those made available in Settings: Swipe up or down, to close all applications.

SwipeAway also closes the apps backgrounded by BackGrounder.

So,give it a try and keep swinging.

[Tutorial] How To Jailbreak A4 Devices On iOS 6.

 

The iPhone dev team have updated Redsn0w, adding full support for final public release of iOS 6 on select devices with official version of Cydia, along with tons of new features which are detailed after the jump.

Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 for both Windows and Mac not only adds support for tethered jailbreak of iOS 6 on A4 based devices, but also for re-restoring and downgrading of select devices from iOS 6 to an older firmware, or in case of re-restoring, from iOS 5.x to iOS 5.x.

Supported devices:

First and foremost, it is important to note this is a tethered jailbreak and is only meant for devices boasting an A4 Processor (or below), namely: the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the 4th-gen iPod Touch. Devices with A5 (iPhone 4S, iPad 2), A5X (iPad 3) and A6 (iPhone 5) processors are not supported at this point. Hacktivation + baseband preservation support has also been added for iPhone 4 and 3GS.

This latest version of Redsn0w does not require the user to go through the trouble of downloading and pointing the app to the iOS 6 IPSW for the jailbreak (the older version of Redsn0w, as mentioned in our previous jailbreak iOS 6 guide, required manual IPSW selection). Instead, the latest Redsn0w recognizes the firmware already installed on your device, downloads the required files and proceeds with the jailbreak. It’s that simple. Cydia, as mentioned above, is now also included as part of this Redsn0w’s release.

Jailbreaking is done in the same way as it is done with iOS 5.

Note for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS Ultrasn0w unlockers: You will first need to preserve your older baseband to be eligible for unlock. Click on “Extras” option and then select “Custom IPSW” option. Select the required iOS 6 IPSW file for your device, and let Redsn0w make the custom firmware for you. Once done, enter Pwned DFU mode by selecting “Pwned DFU” from Redsn0w’s Extras option, and then restore to this custom firmware.

How to boot your device tethered on iOS 6:

Since this is a tethered iOS 6 jailbreak, you will need to boot your device in a tethered mode every time the device is turned off and back on. Booting in tethered mode is easy, and can be achieved using Redsn0w: click on the “Extras” from the main screen and then simply click on “Just Boot” option. Follow the on-screen instructions. Once done, you will be rebooted back into tethered-jailbreak mode.

What’s new in Redsn0w 0.9.15b2?

New re-restore features have also been introduced in this version of Redsn0w. It now allows third-gen iPad and iPhone 4S users to RE-restore to any version of iOS 5.x even if Apple is currently not signing the software, provided that your SHSH blobs are saved for iOS 5.x, and the device is currently running iOS 5.x (not iOS 6) that too updated via iTunes, not OTA. iPad 2 users will also be able to downgrade if they have blobs for both 4.x and 5.x saved – even from iOS 6. The A4 based iPhone 4, 3GS and 4th-gen iPod Touch users can of course always downgrade to an older firmware for untethered jailbreak provided that they have SHSH blobs saved for the firmware they want to downgrade on.

If you want to install Cydia on iOS6,refer to this article.

[News] An FAQ Seesion posted by @pod2g concerning the A5 Jailbreak.

Ever since Corona and the new iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for A4 devices was released,people with A5 devices (iPad2 and iPhone 4S) have been  tweeting and asking @pod2g and @MuscleNerd about the A5 Jailbreak.So,pod2g decided to post a set of questions he’s been asked on his his twitter,All of which are posted below.

Q1)How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven’t released tools to achieve this at home ?

Ans- The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.

It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it.
So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places

Q2)Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release ?

Ans- Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!

Q3Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then ?

Ans- A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven’t found yet !

Q4) pod2g, release this stuff quick, [your insult here], I’ve waited enough now.

Ans- If I could, I would!
