iSleepWell Automatically Switches Into Airplane Mode When Its Placed Face Down

iOS Tweak To Automatically Switch Your iPhone Into Airplane Mode

Developer xvolks is not new to jailbreak and cydia tweaks. His contribution to Corona jailbreak is widely appreciated. There used to be some issue with the jailbreak that disabled iBooks in jailbroken iOS devices. Xvolks patch made iBooks work on iOS deivices. His work on iBooks can be seen here.

cydia tweak iSleepwell for iPhone

iSleepWell is a tweak by Xvolks that has just hit Cydia and brings with it a feature set that attempts to give the user a good night sleep. The application uses a simple method of deactivating all radios, in other words, setting Airplane mode to on through a simple detection routine.

           

iSleepWell is useful to turn airplane mode ON when going to bed (for example) by just putting your iDevice beside you on the screen side. It detects that position and turns off all radios. You can sleep without being disturb by unsolicited calls and you are not bombarded by negative waves. Many parameters can be changed. iOS devices comes built in with a number of hardware sensors that can detect the orientation of the phone, allowing certain things to happen for each state it may be in. iSleepWell uses this hardware capability and turns off all radios when the device is placed screen down on a surface.

cydia app review iSleepwell

Features Of iSleepWell:

Enabled : if ON (default), iSleepWell will detect the sleep position and react as expected. If OFF, it does nearly nothing except waiting to go ON.

Play Sound : when the airplane mode is about to be triggered the device says Airplane mode enabled. This let you put it on the right side to prevent the mode change.
When you take back the device in your hand, the device says Back to normal.
If OFF, no sound is played.

Vibrate : when airplane mode is actually changed, the device vibrates if ON.

Scan interval : iSleepWell polls the accelerometer state each X seconds : 5 and 10 are good choices.

Screen down : by default you have to put the device on the screen to trigger the airplane mode. you can change that behavior by setting this switch to OFF. Useful to test and see the plane too...

Active on sleep mode : when you let your device without using it at all, it goes to suspend state and the applications receive no CPU time from iOS. This switch set to ON awakes to device every 15 minutes to check if the position have changed. So turning your device may not trigger the airplane mode right now if it is in hibernation. This will consume very few battery.
You can set it to OFF if you fear for your battery, but I did not notice significant change.

Disable on manual change : if you set Airplane mode by yourself (when you are aboard a plane ;)), iSleepWell will detect this state and will disable itself until you reenables the radios by yourself.
Setting this to OFF, will let iSleepWell to reenable the radios. It's safer to let this to ON.

Prevent from running : if set to ON, iSleepWell will exit completely and will be unable to do anything. The only ways to relaunch it is to respring or reboot the device after putting this toggle to OFF.


You can get iSleepWell from the Cydia Store for $0.99.

how to untethered jailbreak ios 5.1

Apple added over 200 updates when it released iOS 5. One of those 200 updates is the application iMessage. This application enables any iOS user to communicate with any other iOS user via messages. The good thing is,  iMessage is free and the bad news is that you cannot attach anything other than images through iMessages. 

Dany Lisiansky, a cydia app developer has created a tweak that enables sending any file through iMessages.

Features of Attacher
  • Send and Receive any attachment with iMessage 
  • Open any received attachment. 
  • Attach and send any type of file. 
  • Record and attach voice memos. 
  • "Listen before attaching" switch in Settings > Attacher. 
  • Customize voice memo's name in Settings > Attacher.

iPhone Mods : Get Glowing iPhone Logo And A Torch Light

Mod To Get Glowing iPhone Logo And Torch Light through Headphone Jack

Bored of using iPhone covers and cases ? You might find mod by iPatch very cool. iPatch has created a iPhone mod that illuminates the apple logo at the back panel of the iPhone just like the glowing apple in mac books. Apart from the glowing apple logo at the back, iPatch has included a torch that comes through the headphone jack. The user can manage the settings of the intensity of the light and the glow. This mod is available for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users only. Have a look at the screenshots.

glowing apple mod for iphone 4 S

            


Few Key Points To Highlight : 

  • It will be available on the new iPhone 4S (Verizon and CDMA too)
  • It has had no noticeable drop in battery performance in day to day use
  • It does not cause any heating of the rear case
  • The light goes off when the screen goes off. This means it will not glow when you are on a normal call and have the phone to your ear or have the phone on standby
  • The light effect is an evenly distributed glow, much like the apple symbol on the rear of a mac book lid
  • It does illuminate when you receive a text or call, or when your alarm sounds
  • It does not cause any change in thickness to the phone or result in any light leakage around the frame
  • The glass plate used is that from a standard iPhone 4 and is, therefore, available in black and white (or even custom colors if required)
  • The color of the apple logo can be changed by applying a colour filter and its intensity can be reduced by reducing the front LCD brightness. There are other, currently classified, mods that may be possible too depending on testing. Currently, when the light is off, the apple has a frosted glass appearance but this may change to reflective silver, if possible, to maintain the original look of the iPhone
  • The camera function is completely unaffected either with or without flash
  • Plans are to release an export franchise kit which will be available to trained repairers abroad. It is by no means simple to replicate and would not be advisable to attempt without the expertise and knowledge of how the iPhone functions at a circuitry level. Details of how to participate will be released in the future
  • It will void any warranty with apple but the modification is fully reversible, returning the iPhone exactly back to how it was (at a smaller additional cost)
  • It will come with iPatch's standard 90 day warranty so if anything goes wrong, you are covered
  • International orders are welcomed although please be aware of the delivery scale and costs
  • It looks, quite frankly, awesome!
This mod is currently in production and testing and will be in market soon. Advance users can directly purchase the hardware and install it themselves where as those who need some one to install this mod on their device can send their devices to iPatch's workshop ONLY when there is any official announcement.
