SBSettings: Toggles For iPhone Home Screen

8 12 2008

I already published about WifiToggle that it simply application to saves me thousand of minutes to dig deep into Settings and just turn Wifi on/off  for saving my battery life. For those who have upgraded and jailbreak to firmware 2.2, you may find this application is not no longer compatible with firmware 2.2 (at the time I wrote this post). Here comes to SBSettings to rescue. SBSettings from Cydia offers WifiToggle and even more.

SBSettings is only available in Cydia and designed for jailbreak iPhone. Like most applications in Cydia, SBSettings is free and it is compatible with iPhone 2.x. I highly recommend SBSettings if you want to bring toggles to iPhone Home Screen. You may also see on how to change SBSettings theme here.

Install SBSetting Via Cydia

Step 1: Launch  “Cydia” and select “sections” on haptic menu. Select “System” category and select “SBSettings” or you can tap “Search” in Cydia and type “SBSettings”.

Step 2: Press “Install” button at the right top and select “Confirm” to install SBSettings.

Step 3: After installation completed, your iPhone will be restart automatically to “LockScreen” mode. Looks like your SBSettings icon does not appear on your home screen. Unlike other normal iPhone application, SBSettings does not come with an icon, you can launch it by swipe the status bar at the top or tap and hold down your finger with 1-2 seconds. SBSetting will be slides down and displays you with all the available toggles.

How To Use SBSettings

As mentioned by the author, SBSettings is a full replacement of BossPrefs and it brings all important toggles (which may be hidden under Settings) directly into your iPhone Home Screen. Say, to turn off Wifi, normally you tap “Settings” ->”Wifi” -> On/Off. With SBSettings, this can just be done on iPhone home screen with an instant tap.

By default, you can toggle Wifi, bluetooth, EDGE, 3G and SSH (if you have installed SSH). A green button means the service is turned ON, while a button in red indicates the service is disabled.

SBSettings also provides shortcut buttons to power off iPhone and lets you control the brightness of screen. When you have Wifi-connected, it’ll show you the IP address. I find this is great especially when you need to connect your iPhone via SSH regulary.

What if you want to customize the toggle buttons appear in SBSettings? SBSettings also lets you control the toggles via a configuration screen. Just click “More” to launch the configuration screen. You can customize the toggles appear in SBSetting, as well as, the applications in the dock.

after installing sbsettings, it says REBOOT DEVICE. I am sick of this and nobody seems to know how to get around it. If you reboot the device, then you start from the beginning. How do you install sbsettings and get around the “reboot” issue?

after downloading SBSettings, it says “reboot device”. we dont want to do this. so what do we do? if SBsettings was already installed we could “respring” it, but its not, so I cant. how do you get around this?
My Idea: while at the screen that says reboot, plug itouch into computer. Then go to http://www.blackra1n.com , then click the “Make it Rain”. And hopefully that will fix it. but IM NOT SURE. So please help, as this problem tends to be the main issue with all jailbreakers who want/need sbsettings
