Let’s be honest, with all the bells and whistles that the jailbreak world has to offer, there’s only a handful of tweaks that actually adds any value to our iOS devices. One of those tweaks is SBSettings – a must have tweak, that moves common toggles directly into springboard for quick and easy access. Apple mysteriously left the ability to use Siri to toggle system preferences out of iOS 5, Developer Hazma Sood says he’s been working on a Toggles System for Siri that would allow you to tweak iOS system settings by voice command.
As you can see in the screenshots above, you can ask Siri to change the backlight illumination level of your iDevice, for example. Or ask her to turn on/off 3G.
Sood says that the Cydia tweak is already ready, but there’s only one problem. There’s no iPhone 4S jailbreak in the making. Pod2g already untethered jailbroken all A4 devices running iOS5, and he will start working on a iPhone 4S jailbreak this weekend. But there’s no tell what will happen.
Probably somebody can make a SBSettings pluging for SiriProxy. You don’t need a jailbreak for SiriProxy, but you do need a computer on the same network as your phone. Hey, at least we would get something while we wait for a jailbreak…
Another good news is that, Apple pushed a new build of iOS 5.0.1 yesterday, and it comes unencrypted and wide open for inspection, allowing developers to easily grab all the Siri files they need for a port without piracy. That means, that a Siri port might drop for *old devices* such as the iPhone 4.
Let’s see how this one goes. We will keep you updated. Stay tuned…
