Create Custom iOS Settings With Preference Folders [Cydia Apps]

Another Jailbreak tweak on offer for iPhone users is the “Preference Folders“. As the name suggests the app lets iOS users create folders inside the Settings app. They can then populate these folders with whatever settings they like, creating a selection of most used settings or perhaps one that contains everything they never use, and just don’t want to see all the time.

If you happen to be the kind of person who is constantly scanning through his setting app in the search of one particular setting then, this app can be of great use to you.

xCon Allows To Evade Jailbreak Detection by Apps On iPhone

Jailbreaking iPhone isn’t illegal, but its not that Apple has to like it. They probably hate it the most  and thus with each update they make it more and more difficult for the talented community to release a successfuljailbreaking tool.One tool Apple has developed to hamper  jailbreak users is to create apps that recognize a modified handset when installed via iTunes. Upon opening such apps, an alert will appear on your screen:

“Jailbreak detected. App cannot run on a jailbroken device.”

The user will then have no choice but to either restore their device to a non-jailbroken state or go without using the specific app.

Luckily, a recent tweak submitted to Cydia by the name of xCon attempts to bypass the issue. The tweak is free of charge but allows the workaround on only a few apps.

The short list currently supports the following applications:

Delay In iMac Shipping Due To Shortage Of 2TB HDD

If you are wishing for a made-to-order iMac with a 2 TB hard drive for the Christmas tree this year? Then that’s not going to happen. According to AppleInsider shipping times for iMacs with the 2 TB hard drives have jumped from 1 to 3 days up to a staggering 5 to 7 weeks. While ordering an iMac with a 1 TB drive or an SSD ensures that the computer arrives within a week, clicking the 2 TB option causes the delivery date to push out to well into the new year.

Strangely, Mac Pro ship times are the same for models containing 1 or 2 TB drives. But then, demand for the much more expensive Mac Pro is considerably less than that of the popular iMac.

The culprit appears to be the ongoing situation with flooding in Thailand. According to a blog entry on the website of peripheral seller OWC, the floods have not only affected manufacturers like Western Digital, but also the companies that create the components used in the assembly of hard drives. OWC states that despite the statements of industry analysts, many of whom believe the shortage will be elevated by the summer of 2012, there are signs that hard drives shortages could persist throughout next year.

The highlight of the show is a mode called one-touch marathon. As each piece drops you can get a set of optional places on screen to put it, and when you touch the place you want, the piece goes there.
