DailyPaper

It's midnight and my wallpaper didn't change!

Bing's wallpapers change over at midnight in the time zone of the region you choose in Settings. By default, this is "Worldwide", which is in the US Pacific time zone. Pick the region you live in or one that's fairly close to you to have the wallpaper change at or around midnight.

DailyPaper also imposes a random delay of up to 4 minutes after midnight to avoid causing a sudden spike in load on Bing servers.

Openers

I’m seeing an “Opener” section in Settings which just says “No handlers are installed.” How can I remove it?

Opener is a package that other tweaks use behind the scenes to redirect URLs to another location. For example, MapsOpener detects Google Maps URLs and makes iOS open the Google Maps App Store app instead of the website.

When you uninstall these packages, Cydia won’t uninstall Opener, even though it’s now unused. To uninstall it yourself, open Cydia, tap Manage (iPhone and iPod touch only), followed by Installed. Find Opener, then tap Modify and then Remove.

Why doesn’t YTOpener support iOS 6 or newer?

YTOpener was originally intended only for iOS 5 users who preferred Google’s YouTube App Store app over Apple’s stock YouTube app. The App Store app is opened by default for YouTube links in iOS 6, which is why it’s unneeded and doesn’t allow installation on iOS 6. HASHBANG Productions does have plans to allow YTOpener to let you to choose to open any third-party YouTube client on any iOS version, however.

tapUnlock

How can I theme tapUnlock’s “tap to unlock” button?

tapUnlock uses existing button graphics in iOS, which are already used for the Cancel button in the “slide to power off” overlay. These graphics are bottombargray.png and bottombargray_pressed.png, located at /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework.

TypeStatus

TypeStatus isn't showing a typing indicator!

Note that there are some cases where the iMessage service doesn't send a typing indicator - when you're sending a message to yourself, and for the first message sent when the sender uses the compose button in the Messages app. In other cases, please let us know and we'll look into it.

TypeStatus only supports iMessage - SMS does not support typing indicators.

I use a messaging service other than iMessage. Can you make TypeStatus support that service?

We made TypeStatus Plus for the purpose of supporting a variety of other services – along with a slew of other features. Please give it a try!

How much battery life does TypeStatus consume?

TypeStatus should not have any impact on battery life at all. iMessage communications are sent and received by a background process called imagent - including typing and read receipt notifications. TypeStatus remains idle until one of these notifications are received, and then delivers the notification to your current app in order to display the TypeStatus notification. If you feel TypeStatus is affecting your battery life, please get in touch and we'll see if we can work out what's happening.

TypeStatus Plus may require supported apps to run in the background constantly. This may have an impact on battery life.

How do I uninstall TypeStatus on Mac?

Open the EasySIMBL app and right-click on TypeStatus. There will be an option to uninstall. Make sure you quit the Messages app and open it again so TypeStatus is no longer running.

General

What is ARM64, and why is this tweak not working?

ARM is the architecture of the processor in most mobile devices, similar to Intel on desktop computers. Modern processors are also either 32-bit or 64-bit; the latter of which increases efficiency and improves handling of larger amounts of data.

The iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad mini second generation, and all newer devices include an ARM64 processor that is quite different from the 32-bit ARM processors before it. Apps not yet built to support ARM64 still work, however due to the difference between 32 and 64-bit it is not possible for a 32-bit tweak to run in a 64-bit app or vice versa. Therefore, tweaks must be updated to add support for ARM64.

I'd like to know how your tweaks work - where can I find the source code?

The source code for all of our free tweaks are available on GitHub. To compile them, you need Theos – see its installation instructions.

I have a tweak idea! How should I tell you?

We appreciate hearing of tweak ideas - you can send them to support@hbang.ws or send us a Tweet. If you want to share your idea in a more public manner, you can submit it to the /r/jailbreak subreddit, where it’s likely that somebody else will implement it (but we do check there often!).

How do I translate one of your tweaks to my language?

You can find the translation files along with languages left to translate for which tweaks and credits to all of the people that have helped us on the translations page.
