I am not able to install Nightmode 8 on my ios9 jailbreak device. How shall I do it?
JulianHernandez - January 24, 2015 at 4:22am
I have said the same thing for years, no1 had time for that crap, get a life "jailbreak community", and get an android
gamerscul9870 - January 24, 2015 at 4:27am
jailbreakers have a life. They made countless tweaks and coding to get users over thousands of features and gestures that android can't do. Why have it already in there? What if you don't want some of these features and have to accept the space it hogs up. Ios on the other hand, it may take a bit process to access tweaks, but it's still less trouble to deal with. If it wasn't for jailbreaking one bit, there wouldn't be this many iphone users. Won't see much lag anyway.
JulianHernandez - January 24, 2015 at 4:42am
Sorry but I have I don't have that much time on my hands to buy a phone to have to wait for a hack that is compatible with my firmware version, to then be restricted from updating to the newer firmware when it comes out because than I'll lose half of what I use my phone for, then have to do this all through a computer using the ever so wonderful iTunes, and a program that is written in Chinese. And not to mention all of the random reboots and countless resprings of your iPhone. And countless restores. Why buy a phone just to defile it? Just get 1 that was made to get things done. A phone for ADULTS, not a phone for kids to play angry birds, and theme! Lol
gamerscul9870 - January 24, 2015 at 4:49am
Then don't get caught in tweaks that get you in boot loop and don't bother updating it, but furthermore, iphone is for anyone at any age no matter who you expect the audience it's used for. LAWL. Besides, android is made like a kids phone, plus windows is baby styled.

How did you make that video? I could use your services. Steps and programs used please. Info@NutationRecordings.com
xoleras - January 18, 2015 at 6:20pm
night mode is cool and I would love to have sound settings for all events, ringtone, notifications, media etc, the rest is trash android shit that I don't want on my phone
Adam - January 18, 2015 at 3:23am
If wanted those features i'd get an android, I like the way iOS is, please leave it alone. I don't want those useless features, makes the phone slow and crashes more..
Abdo - January 16, 2015 at 8:30am
Search in settings isn't that creative.
lepaka - January 16, 2015 at 7:33am
they are all very good ideas, but are they useful? for me problably not, may i say that from the list above, possibly they will ppick one up, and as mensioned that are features available on cydia. Apple will do better, and mostly will update the system to better performace for the new iPhone 6s and to kill the iphone 4-4s and 5.
zvgfswge - January 16, 2015 at 7:19am
Apple picking features in Cydia.
JulianHernandez - January 16, 2015 at 2:43am
or you can just stop waiting and dreaming for apple to actually let you customize your own phone and just get an android
gamerscul9870 - January 16, 2015 at 3:07am
Or you can jailbreak and immediately get access to any of these. Apple has better ideas than this anyway.
JulianHernandez - January 16, 2015 at 3:14am
Why get a phone, just 2 have to wait for a compatible hack, to then download and tweak a bunch of stuff void your warranty and risk damaging your internals, when you can buy a better phone 4 the same price, and not have 2 do any of that, it comes with all that right out the box, and if not you can download an app that does it, cuz their not sandboxed
gamerscul9870 - January 16, 2015 at 3:34am
When it comes to jailbreaking, it's still worth going through all that trouble, but compared to what what you get out of the box, you still save more gb or to be clear, half of what android takes, plus what if it doesn't lag as much? Talk about hacking, besides the warrenty may not matter anyway depending on how well you take care of the phone and may keep it anyway.
JulianHernandez - January 16, 2015 at 3:49am
You can't bring up memory when taking about android, because all you have to do is pop in an sd and 4get the rest. And who has that Much time on their hands to do all of that, and that's just the actual jailbreak and then there's the repo adding and troubleshooting and random restarts (I've had my share of jailbroken idevices ik how it is) I don't have time for that
gamerscul9870 - January 16, 2015 at 9:11pm
There are ways to get around with sd cards on ios. It requires a wireless port to do it. Still got enough time to do that.
gamerscul9870 - January 15, 2015 at 11:31pm
if there is anything it needs, for the iPad, I'd say put the ringer switch in control center (unless it will be built into the bezel but that's a story for another day), but for any Apple device, yes setting search, no everything else, but needs AirPlay without wifi, maybe ios 6 icons so people can choose which old ones to have, for a new iOS update,a notification would appear on the screen and choose to update from their or not (so you don't have to find out later it's there in settings), allow greater customization where we can put a group of arranged apps into another (from some tweak video), name photos, close apps automatically to save home button usage and battery life whenever they're not used. Any ideas guys?
gamerscul9870 - January 15, 2015 at 11:49pm
Oh and also have the contacts app connect with any app to add contacts from them whenever a friend is added (like Facebook for example when a friend is on the list and automatically goes to contacts as well).

We in the JailBreak community already have most of those things, we've had them for a while. Just like most of stuff in iOS 8, Apple got from us. Go to ModMyi.com (or download the app) to learn about JailBreaking, and how to, they'll show you how, step by step. There's a completely separate iTunes Store called Cydia, you get to use both, but Cydia is waaay better. If more people new about it, and that they could personalize/customize their iDevice however they want, a lot more ppl would be buying iPhones etc.
Sharp - January 15, 2015 at 10:51pm
This is probably the largest group of useless features in ios. Thankfully it's only a concept.

they need the option to password protect Notes! So you can protect sensitive information
Phenomenal - January 15, 2015 at 10:44pm
JailBreak ur phone, you can lock whatever u want.
PaulieP - January 16, 2015 at 1:23am
Great suggestion, I'll make sure I feed that one to my community. Thanks!
gamerscul9870 - January 15, 2015 at 9:23pm
Out of all of this, I find setting search a perfect idea.
Phenomenal - January 15, 2015 at 10:44pm
Nope, it's stupid.
PaulieP - January 15, 2015 at 8:48pm
Great concepts, especially the Genius Bar one which is at the very end of the video in case you are wondering. I don't think the button colors is necessary but that's my opinion. I do love the close all apps button, that would be very useful. Also a settings button on each individual out to restart the application would be great instead of having to close it if it's giving you issues and then go back to your home screen find the application and open it again. The video apps all displaying latest content is awesome! Overall very well done, great ideas!
Nice job!! Love these..
Nice job!! Love these.. - January 15, 2015 at 8:28pm
Very clever ideas, indeed.
Phenomenal - January 15, 2015 at 10:46pm
JailBreak ur iDevice and have most of those now, instead of waiting a couple years if at all for Apple to add them.
Cenk - January 15, 2015 at 8:22pm
I don't see any of these taking place on iOS 9. Or any other iOS ever! Whoever prepared this, has no idea about how Apple does things.

Forrest - January 15, 2015 at 9:32pm
Hey me too........
Phenomenal - January 15, 2015 at 10:47pm
We in the JailBreak community already have most of those things.
