EZ4U2NV i5 , complete theme for iPhone 5

This is another awesome theme from @junesiphone.

One of the first and most complete themes to hit Cydia designed around the iPhone 5.

Here's a screen shot, followed by a quick tube.  Directions after the jump.


How to get EZ4U2NV i5. (ignore the animated weather iWidget, that's a future post)

You will need to download and install the following apps and tweaks from Cydia:

iFile, iBlank, Winterboard, & Locscreen Clock Hide.

Now purchase and download the theme, EZ4U2NV i5, don't be a cheapskate.

Until the Gridlock tweak is updated for 6.1, you will need to create 12 blank icons using iBlank, then respring.  The twelve blank icons will appear on your homescreen. You will need to move these to the first page of your home screen to duplicate my screen shot.  If you don't already have it, go to cydia and download the tweak MultiIcon Mover, this allows you to move several icons at once.  Just play with your icons until you have them how you want them for this theme.

Now open Winterboard and select the following, as show in the video:

 Instructions on how to configure the weather locations for the
lockscreen and springboard weather are located at:

/var/stash/Themes/EZ4U2NV i5 SB/Wallpaper.html
/var/stash/Themes/EZ4U2NV i5 LS/lockBackground.html

You will need to use iFile to edit your zip code.  This is shown in the video.

This theme is not that hard and I encourage you to try it, you will become addicted to using custom themes on your device and amazing those around you with the individuality of your iPhone.

And that's how Bruce T makes it EZ4U2NV my i5

Barrel Tweak on iOS 6.1, Awesome

Now that evasi0n has been released and my iPhone 5 is jailbroken, I am back to tweaking and modding my device.  

The Barrel tweak, by @aaronash , has been out for some time.  I have finally gotten around to playing with it.  This is a gem and well worth the $2.99 it will set you back when you unlock your screen and flip through your phone while someone gazes on in amazement.  Not much to blog about here, this is something you have to see, so we created and uploaded a couple of tubes for your viewing pleasure.

Nothing else I can add to this one, thanks for reading.

Video: evasi0n Jailbreak iOS 6.1

This video shows the entire evasi0n jailbreak process. 

This iPhone 4 had the stock weather app crashing issue, so I decided to restore and jailbreak again while recording the process.  Restoring and running evasi0n again fixed the weather app crashing issue, not that anyone uses it anyway. I experienced no issues while jailbreaking my 3GS, iPad 2 or iPhone 5.

Here's the highly unprofessional video, shot with my iPhone 5.  Enjoy.

That's how Bruce T does a cheesy jailbreak video.
Don't forget to follow @brucetdoesit for all things intellectually bad ass.

evasi0n Jailbreak underway.

It hit, stay tuned, jail breaking my devices....

Update: iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and my iPad 2 compete.

Update 2: 2/4/2013 12:30PM CST:
Some repos are down in Cydia, I'm assuming the demand has overwhelmed the servers, as was pretty much expected.

Sorry for the screen shots, no time for vide; working, blogging, and multitasking in beast mode.

evasi0n goes live tomorrow.

The tweet from @evad3rs just came in. The long awaited evasi0n 6.1 untethered jailbreaks goes live tomorrow.

To the haters and trolls, deal with it. I would rather have no jailbreak at all than have a jailbreak that isn't ready...

Stay tuned!!!!!

evasi0n at 91%

85% evasi0n

Jailbreakers everywhere are obsessed with refreshing the page in anticipation for the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, currently at "85%"

It appears that the first round of major testing has been completed on Windows and Mac...

While ad and donation revenue piles up for the @evad3rs team, I'll keep day dreaming about my iPhone 5 having all of tweaks I have missed since it's release.

I'll be hitting the donation button once my jailbreaks are complete, and I encourage you to do the same. These Devs work hard for free to keep your iDevices awesome, so don't be a cheapskate.

Stay tuned, still hoping for a Sunday Funday
