With the release of the Untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1, now we enter a phase where we will see tons of awesome Jailbreak Tweaks to make the most out of your iDevice. Recently, iOS Developer Filippo Biga, has released UnlockFX which adds cool 3D effects to your Lockscreen of your Jailbroken iPhone and iPad.
Slide-To-Unlock, is very much synonymous with the iOS UI. That is probably the first thing we do with our device and it was first of the several patents that Apple had registered for itself. Although the feature does the job pretty efficiently and also looks very cool but wouldnt it be very nice if we could add some more effects and animation to it ??, well, this is where UnlockFX will help you.
With UnlockFX not only can you just Silde-To-Unlock but you can also rotate, move, flip or skew your LockScreen to unlock. The App also comes with pre loaded 30 different effects for your LockScreen. You can also add a custom picture as a background to be shown while unlocking.
UnlockFX like many other Jailbreak Tweaks is not having a SpringBoard Icon but integrates with the Settings to customize. UnlockFX is available in BigBoss repo in Cydia for just $ 1.99.
As the device requires Untethered jailbreak it is compatible with all iDevices running on iOS 5.0.1 except iPhone 4S and iPad 2. But with the expected release of the Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 next week we can expect it to run the A5 devices, too.
This is a Jailbreak Tweak and hence you will need a Jailbroken iOS 5.0.1 device. For a detailed step by step tutorial on how to jailbreak your iOS 5.0.1 untethered using Redsnow or Corona click here.
