Backgrounder allows for total control of backgrounding on an iPhone/iOS-based device. With Backgrounder, *you* decide when an app should keep running, and when it should quit. Backgrounder provides true backgrounding; minimized apps can be made to continue to run as if they were still the foreground app.
● NEW: Added background method "Auto Detect" (iOS 4.0+ only).
● FIX: Status bar icons now work with iOS 4.0+.
o Requires phoenix3200's libstatusbar extension.
● MOD: Removed use of preferences symbolic link, as it is not needed.
o The symlink ~/.backgrounderrc is no longer used, and can be manually deleted, if desired.
o Some apps still have issues due to Apple's sandbox; this will need to be fixed in a later release.
● MOD: Changed maximum supported firmware version to 4.0.1.
o Note that Backgrounder purposely blocks untested firmware versions; this is to prevent the possibility of crashes with newer firmware.
o Jailbreak users should *never* upgrade to new iOS firmware versions until they are certain that the firmware is jailbreakable and that the extensions they wish to use have been properly updated.
You can download Backgrounder from the BigBoss Cydia repository.
