Jailbreak tweak allows you to use custom gestures instead of plain old boring passcodes.
One of the things that’s really set Android devices apart from iPhones is their capacity for an array of custom unlock configurations. Iphones have been hampered by a boring combination of “slide to unlock” and passcodes that have have failed to harness the full potential of the mobile devices, but Slide, a new Cydia tweak for jailbroken iPhones, has changed all of that.
“Never again do you need to worry about entering some lengthy password, or are limited to 9 points on a grid,” notes developer Adam Bell. “With Stride, you can unlock with gestures, and custom made gestures at that!”
Slide allows you to use custom gestures to unlock your iPhone – no more boring ”slide to unlock” and passcode combination, though for added security you can add a passcode to follow your custome gesture.
“Even though stride is pretty secure on its own, for best effect you should set a PIN/Passcode as it makes things extra secure, and a lot nicer too!”
The tweak costs $2.99, but you can find a free copy by adding “http://repo.hackyouriphone.org/“ to your list of Cydia sources.
So how do you get it to work?
1. Jailbreak your iPhone. I’ve written a detailed, easy-to follow guide that takes just a few minutes and is ABSOLUTELY FOOLPROOF.
2. Search for, download, and install Stride from the Cydia store app that appears on your new Springbaord.
3. Search for, download, and install Stride. It’s supposed to cost $0.99 cents, but you can also get it for free by opening the Cydia the store and navigating to Manage > Sources > Edit > Add “http://repo.hackyouriphone.org/“ to your list.
It’s that easy.
