Unfold To Unlock Tweak Now Available For Your iPhone [Jailbreak]

Unfold To Unlock Tweak Now Available For Your iPhone [Jailbreak]

Remember that snazzy “fold to unlock” concept for the iPhone that we told you about last week? Just like a lot of software concepts, developers have now turned it into a fully functional tweak for jailbroken devices, and it’s available to download now via Cydia.

It’s called Unfold and it’s available from the BigBoss repo — which should be one of your Cydia sources by default — for free. Once installed and activated, it transforms your boring slide to unlock animation into something a little more interesting — a piece of paper that folds open to reveal your home screen.

This news does come with a word of warning, though. We’ve tested Unfold on a jailbroken iPhone and it caused one device to lock up completely, forcing us to boot up in safe mode and remove the tweak. If you decide to try it out, let us know how it works for you.

    Working pretty good on my iPhone 4. Only downside, doesn’t work when rotated with SBRotator. Still damned cool though.

    Guys does anyone know whether there is a good jailbreak for 5.1 iPhone 4s out there ?

    Please help, thanks in advance!!

    Having major problems with it … Phone freezes up when I try to fold to unlock. It might be worth noting that I have a password lock on my phone as well.

    iPhone 4s with 4 number password. Freezes every time. You can still power down and reboot. Hold down sleep button and slide where “slide to power off” would be and it will still power down. Turn back on, enter password and either remove password protection or remove tweek. Without password seems to work fine. Hope this helps.

    Was looking forward to this, WHEN i get my 5.1.1 iPhone4S jailbroken. But seeing comments that it freezes up if passcode is enabled? Hope they fix that one quickly.

    Looks cool, but this morning when I was woken up by my alarm I couldn’t slide to turn it off. I eventually had to reboot my phone, to get the alarm to shut up, and found that the slide to unlock to put my sim card number in was also not functioning. I had to eventually remove the package from Cydia to unlock my sim card

    For some reason when I make a search for this mod, it doesn’t come up. Only UnFolder shows up. Can anyone help with this?
