iSleepWell – Nasty Plugin Allows You To Sleep Well With Your iPhone

by Hamza Tariq - on Apr 3rd 2012 - No Comments

Everyone wants the complete rest at night, and wants to sleep for a whole night at least until the morning. But having unwanted calls at night over your handy phone may kill your rest time, and put you in a depression in the morning. For all those who have been passing from these issues, we have new tool launched in Cydia for your iPhone that puts a mute to your iPhone networks while you are sleeping, and lets you enjoy your night.

iSleepWell is a new jailbreak tweak launched in Cydia that aims to bring the functionality that detects the orientation of iPhone using the built-in accelerometer, and operates the network according to the iPhone orientation. With this tweak enabled your iPhone, you can simply ditch all those unwanted calls,text-messages, and alerts on your device by placing the iPhone face down.

Once you place your device face down while using the tweak, it will automatically turn your iPhone into an Airplane mode and disable all other network radios on your device. In short, it helps you in saving the battery life of your iPhone and iPad. The enabling of an Airplane mode prevents phone calls, text messages and other kind of notifications from destroying your night.

I guess the developer behind the tweak must be bugged by various unwanted phone calls at night, and therefore he developed this tweak for himself, and then later decided to make quick bucks from it by seeding it in Cydia’s default repository for a little price tag of $0.99.

iSleepWell is a great tool for those who are disturbed from unwanted calls at night, but on the same time it is a risky tool as it can accidentally turn your device into an airplane mode. So before going to hook up the tweak from Cydia must think about it.

We all clearly know that iOS is the most securest operating system out there in public at the time, and Apple is actively working to make it more secure and powerful than other mobile operating systems available in a market on the open-source license. However, the iOS users love to jailbreak their devices to modify them according to their requirements and thanks to the pre-active developer’s community that bring latest features to the iOS platform day-after-day.

With the new iOS 5, Apple has introduced the over-the-air updates, and completely turns the iOS devices into PC-Free devices, as users no more needed to connect their devices to iTunes in order to update iOS firmware versions.

But the new OTA updates are more dangerous for the users who are using their devices on reliable baseband unlocks, and jailbreaks, as most of the users are not aware actually from these updates and to remove update banners from their home screen they press down the update iOS firmware version, and after the whole process knows that they have screwed their devices. However, to those users, we have today figured out a new jailbreak tweak called “No Update” that prevents your device from accessing the network to check OTA updates on your device, and spoof original device information to the Apple’s server, so they no more provide any iOS update on the user’s devices.

No Update is available in Cydia for free of cost, and you can download it directly on your device using the Cydia’s default repository of ModMyi. No Update is available in a repository for free of cost, and looks a handy tweak that helps you in preventing your device from accessing the OTA updates.
