Ability to Jailbreak your iOS device have multitude of advantages and the coolest of them all is that you can install apps from the Cydia app store. Normally these apps are those that due to some odd reason cant make their way into iTunes app store.

Although Apple have introduced multiple new features by launching iOS 4 and the versions after that but there are certain things that you can do only by downloading apps from Cydia store.

MultiIconMover Cydia app

MultiIconMover Cydia App

Normally you can organize the applications on your iDevice by connecting it with a computer, but if you don’t have the access to your computer then moving apps icon on your iDevice homescreen becomes quite a hassle. So with MultiIconMover you can move multiple icons at the same time on your iDevice.

To use this Cydia app, you first have to press down an icon till the time it becomes active for move/delete, once it is active then select as many icons as you want for the move. You just have to move one of the active icons to desired location, press the home button and all the other selected apps will also move there.

Activator Cydia app

Activator for iOS Devices

Previously, this particular Cydia app use to come equipped with a built-in multi-tasking Backgrounder. But now as Apple has included multi-tasking in iOS powered devices so to get the maximum out of this app you have to download the standalone version that is compatible with both iPhone and iPad.

What this app really does is that it allows you to create shortcuts and custom gestures in-order to access certain features and apps. Ranging from toggling ON/OFF both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, iPod controls or locking the screen, you can preset the exact gesture for a certain task. The Activator built-in supported gestures include pressing the Power or Home button, shaking your iOS device and disconnecting or connecting the power.

Do try out these apps on your iDevice and give us your feedback in comments. Also let us know what other cydia apps are you using on your iPhone?

Cydia App store is full with numerous innovative apps for your iDevices that really enhances the performance of your device. But sometimes Cydia Apps are not that much useful in terms of performance enhancing factor of iDevice.

Apple App store have a huge archive of applications that are compatible with not only the iPhone or iPod Touch but they are also compatible with the Apple’s highly popular tablet device, iPad. But what’s really frustrating is that sometimes you purchase an app for your iPad from the App store and when you run the app you come to know that it is not optimized for the larger screen of iPad. So to tackle situations like these here is an App that you must download to enhance iPad’s application experience:

FullForce Cydia App Features

FullForce App user interface

FullForce is the application that can optimize all the apps for iPad’s larger screen. Basically it tricks the subject app to think that it is made for the larger screen of an iPad. To activate FullForce app with any of the given application on your iPad, you have to set it up in the Settings Panel.

There are some glitches in this app plus it is not compatible with all of the apps available on iTunes app store. Moreover, for the ease of the users, developers of FullForce app have also released a compatible apps list. Although the app splendidly resolve the difference of resolution issue but it sometimes crashes or in some instances use only half of the screen.

But I think on the whole it is a great way of running iPhone apps on your iPad with an optimized resolution and display. To download FullForce app, you have to launch Cydia app store and search for it.

The White iPhone 4 has been finally launched and is available at Apple Stores online and many other iStores in many locations across the world. The White iPhone 4 has taken a long time to arrive after the launch of the iPhone 4 and recent reports tell us why it has taken so long.

White iPhone 4

According to a complete teardown the White iPhone 4 conducted by an unknown source shows us that the Lens of the camera has been modified and a new Proximity Sensor has been added. Why have these changes been made? Well, evidently the White iPhone 4 had leaking issues when in testing due to the slightly translucent state of the white material used in the manufacture.

The Modified Camera Lens

White iPhone 4 Modified Lens

Don’t worry, your White iPhone 4 counterparts do not have a different camera, only the lens has been changed to correct the magnitude of the incident light on the white surface. You see, the material is made of glass and hence it used to cause blurriness in the photos taken using the camera. Thus, the lens had to be modified, and as you can see in the image above, the sensor has been moved back a little to stop any leak or light issues. The material used also had problems with UV rays, hence more time has gone into getting rid of all the problems with the White iPhone 4 parts.

New Proximity Sensor

White iPhone 4 Proximity Sensor

The Proximity Sensor on the White iPhone 4 has been completely changed and Apple have even done modifications to how it is placed on the front face of the phone. As you can see in the picture of the White iPhone 4 in the beginning of this post, a new slit above the earpiece is clearly visible. This was specially made to accommodate the new Proximity sensor that helps in eliminating screen use during calls.

These are the most noticeable changes in the White iPhone 4 apart from it being 0.2mm thicker than the Black iPhone 4 and the slight increase in price. The White iPhone 4 had a very good impact on iPhone sales and boosted the overall sales of iPhones in many countries. That’s something really good for Apple.

Do you prefer the White iPhone 4 or the Black one? Has anyone purchased a White one?

How to Root Android Phone

Hello there!! Today I’ll be teaching you how to spread Jam on your toast like a professional! Just kidding! Actually I’ll be mastering you in the art of how to root Android phone, although there isn’t much to master and the whole process is done using few apps. Rooting a phone may not sound interesting to some, those are the ones who buy a phone either to show off or just because they have the money to buy one. Those who’ll be rooting Android phones are the ones who’ll also be doing other things to their phone to make perform much better, have more features than a normal version of the phone.

Root Android Phone

What is Rooting Android Phone?

People keep asking me this, and I never have a good enough answer to make them understand. Maybe they’re not smart enough or maybe I don’t tell them in the right way. Anyways, here’s what rooting a mobile device means: Modifying your current operating system by using various third-party apps and some cracking/hacking to give you complete back-end access to your phone, giving you more rights and advantages that your phone or service provider doesn’t give you. It also enables you to overclock your phone(CPU and GPU), remove limitations, customize the looks, build and use Custom ROMS and much more. Read this article here to know more.

How to Root Android Phone?

Well, first of all buy an Android phone, then believe in yourself and self-motivate by using phrases like ‘ You can do it’, ‘ I won’t spoil or brick my Android phone’..and so on.

What I’m about to explain to you today is super simple, it doesn’t involve the use of any special Hacker skills, nor does it require you to have a degree in ‘ Android Development and Hacking’. I’ll be telling you how to root Android phone using simple one-click apps such as Super One-Click App, Universal Androot App and Z4Root. All the applications below are Universal root Android ones, that means you can try it on any phone you want. Normal rooting won’t brick your Android phone, so there’s no harm in trying.

Super One-Click App

The Super One-Click App is a universal rooting application that should work on all Android phones and the Samsung Captivate, hence this is also a ‘How to root my Samsung Captivate’ application. The software is free and is very simple to use, all you have to do is connect your android phone to the PC and start clicking. If you aren’t able to root your Android phone, it’s probably because it is a very low end device and doesn’t support rooting. If this doesn’t work then there is no point in trying the next app, but you can give Z4Root a shot.

  • You can download Super One-Click App from here or here. Once done, here’s how you should root your android phone.
  • Connect your Android Phone in USB debugging mode, which you’ll be notified when you connect your phone via USB or you manually switch on in Settings>Applications>Development.
  • Now Open Super One-Click App and select Universal if you want to root any android phone or select Samsung Captivate. Watch the video demo below if you’re not sure about something.

 

Universal Androot App

This is another app that you can use to root Android phones listed below. Although the name says Universal Androot, the app actually can only root the following phones and is basically an app that you can download from here. To install this application on your android phone, you’ll need to have a File Manager installed, I’d personally suggest Astro File Manager or OI File Manager.

Below is the list of all the Android Phones that this app works on; tough luck if yours is not on the list. You should probably sell it and get something on the list if you want to enjoy custom ROMS and awesome applications.

  • Google Nexus One (2.2)
  • Google G1 (1.6)
  • HTC Hero (2.1)
  • HTC Magic (1.5) (Select Do not install Superuser)
  • myTouch 3G 3.5mm/LE (1.6)
  • HTC Tattoo (1.6)
  • Dell Streak (2.1)
  • Motorola Milestone (2.1)
  • Motorola XT701
  • Motorola XT800 (2.1)
  • Motorola ME511
  • Motorola Charm
  • Motorola Droid (2.01/2.1/2.2 with FRG01B)
  • Sony Ericsson X10 (1.6)
  • Sony Ericsson X10 Mini (1.6)
  • Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro (1.6)
  • Acer Liquid (2.1)
  • Acer beTouch E400 (2.1)
  • Samsung Galaxy Beam
  • Samsung galaxy 5 (gt-i5500)
  • Vibo A688 (1.6)
  • Lenovo Lephone (1.6)
  • LG Ally (2.1)
  • LG GT540 (1.6)
  • Gigabyte GSmart G1305

If you’re phone is on the list, then download the Universal Androot App and follow the steps below to root your Android phone.

  • Copy the downloaded .apk file to your Android phones SD card and install it using one of the File managers I mentioned above.
  • After installation of Universal Androot, run the app and then follow onscreen instructions to complete the process. Check out the video below to see how it’s done.

That’s all, you have successfully completed rooting of your android phone. Wasn’t that super easy?

Z4Root App

Here’s another simple one click app that also promises to root any Android phone in the market, I don’t know how true that is, hence you’ll have to try it on root your Android phone to see if it really works on yours.

The instructions on installing this app is similar to the previous one and you can download the Z4Root app from here. The download is from Addictive Tips, because the app has been removed from the Android Market. Watch the video and follow the steps to get it done right. Don’t be afraid if your Android phone gives you any errors. According to the creator, Z4Root has a 99% success rate.

Warning: We aren’t responsible if you happen to brick, blow up or melt your phone. Try this at your own risk. It worked on my Android phone!!

That’s all guys, three simple and one-click methods on how to root Android phone. If you have any doubts or feedbacks please contact via comments. Happy rooting.
