bossPrefs - iPhone Apps

Wednesday, April 30, 2008 discuss in our forum | read comments(24)  
To run any Cydia applications or games on your iPhone or iTouch, you must be jailbroken first.

Not jailbroken yet? Click Here

Search "bossPrefs" in Cydia

From the developer’s site: “This native iPhone app is an offshoot of “Services” by Chris Hoffman. The app expands on services by adding some more options and focusing on being a complete preferences replacement. After installing BossPrefs you should be able to remove Customize, SMBPrefs, and Settings icons from your desktop.”

If you don't have this app yet, the go get it!!

Let me tell you this is the first tool that i install on a jailbroken touch or iPhone. Boss Prefs makes it easy to get all the info you need with a touch of a couple of buttons. Let me explain in more detail.

Main Screen

Here you have all your toggles,additional toggle buttons can be downloaded from cydia. From this screen you can quickly toggle your 3g, edge, wifi, bluetooth, ssh, etc. Not only that it will also provide the ip of edge, 3g, and wifi right here on the same screen.

Here is the configuration menu which you can customize the visual look of your main screen.

This is the MORE Section located on the top right corner of the main screen.
Here you have the following Settings:

Dock Icons: Allows you to add icons to your boss prefs system tray.
Fix User Dir Permissions: Quick fix for symptoms such as Mail app crashing, summerboard themes not working, notes not savings and other permission issues.
BossPrefs to Double Tap Home: Allows you to launch BossPrefs by double tapping the home key(round key)
Show Free Disk Space: Shows the total space in use on your phone.
Enable numeric Battery: One of my Favs, shows your battery level in a 0-100 percent meter.
Disable Apple App Kill switch: If apple dislikes an app(for whatever reason), they can remove it from your device using a kill switch function.

Hide Icons - Self Explanatory

Power Manage

Fast Respring - For changing things like language that don't require a restart of the springboard
Respring and Lock - Resprings the phone / ipod and locks it

sucks for u anonymous. try holding the power and home buttons until it goes black, then hold the power for 3 seconds and it should turn back on 
   Anonymous Anonymous - 

is this more preferred than sbsettings 
   Anonymous Zero - 

SBSettings is an optional 'replacement' for bossPrefs for those who don't like it. They're not very different from each other, except that SBSettings can be accessed at any time (during app use, on the springboard, even from the lockscreen) by swiping across the status bar with your finger.

As of a week ago (1/15/10) my 1st gen iPhone no longer scans for networks for wireless. It is always on the Edge network. Does this have anything to do with BossPrefs? I have the 3.1.2 software on my phone and it is jailbroken. Please help! 
   Anonymous Anonymous - 

i have the same problem as the guy above me. what should i do? i have a tmobile sim card and updated my iphone but it doesnt read it anymore. what do i have to do? Thanks. 
   Anonymous Anonymous - 

Anonymous.. you have to reset the network for your wireless. Go to: SETTINGS > GENERAL > RESET > RESET NETWORK SETTINGS. Do this and you'll be fine. If you are jailbroken or unlocked DO NOT WORRY this will not change anything... Cheers
