This week Apple released the first update of iOS 5 which allowed users to install the new version of the operating system directly from their devices. If you have not yet updated to iOS 5.0.1 from iOS 5 then most certainly that you have badge displayed in the upper right of the Settings application, badge which will warn that you have an OTA update undone.

I saw that many asking about a way that could get the badge out of there but unfortunately this is now impossible to do without jailbreak. Apple does not offer an opportunity to close the application’s badge so the only way to get rid of it is to make the OTA update at iOS 5.0.1 or to install iOS 5.0.1 through iTunes.

If you have jailbreak on your device then the elimination of badge is quite simple by installing the BadgeClear’s tweak from Cydia. Once you install it you will have the option to remove that badge along with any others displayed by your applications and theoretically it should not appear unless Apple launch iOS 5.0.2 through OTA update. This is the only way you can get rid of that badge, and unfortunately it does not work on the iPhone 4S where you do not have jailbreak.

At just two weeks after the launching of iPhone 4s on the market, Dev Team has managed to present the first images with jailbroken device with Cydia installed. Unfortunately, Dev Team says that the jailbreak solution is preliminary and has so many lack things until the official launch can not happen now. Of course we expect something like that considering that it’s a new device with a new operating system and general solutions of jailbreak to be released about a month after launching the device.

Dev Team does not say if the jailbreak solution is tethered or untethered, but it tethered at first suppose. Of course until the official release it will be untethered and will be available for all iDevice, including iPad 2 but for now would not bother me to have a tethered.

I hope that Dev Team to release by the end of November a new jailbreak solution for iPhone 4S but they did not have time to complete the project so we will have to wait. Remember that Chronic Dev Team working on a solution of untethered jailbreak but they have not submitted any evidence that it would work on iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

Although last night was officially launched iOS 5 software of Apple, that does not mean the signing session of SHSH for iOS 4.3.5 was closed. These days you can still make a proper restore at iOS 4.3.5 without any problem and if you did update to iOS 5 and you have a baseband undecoded with Gevey then you can return to iOS 4.3.5 and downgrade the baseband in the same time.

The same procedure applies for iPad 2; in fact they are the only devices that can be done using iTunes downgrade baseband. A downgrade from iOS 5 to iOS 4.3.5 does not involve the use of any SHSH from Cydia or TinyUmbrella because Apple signs now SHSH and the whole process takes place without too many headaches.

Unfortunately Apple will close after the weekend the possibility to save a SHSH for iOS 4.3.5 and therefore the possibility of doing a baseband downgrade will not like the company, then is better to hurry up and get back to iOS 4.3.5 now that you still have the chance. For iPhone 3GS is not apply this method.

FakePercent is a new toggle for SBSettings that allows users to falsify their percentage of the battery from the device. The tweak has a dedicated menu in Settings application from iOS that you can enable it and set the percentage checker of battery that you want to see instead of the default from iOS.

With the percentage change you will have a fixed value to be displayed whether the battery is discharged or loaded and you will not know when to put the device on charged. FakePercent is freely available in the Cydia in repo BigBoss and require SBSettings to function.

ActivAccess for Activator is another tweak released last evening in Cydia that allows us to set certain gestures to activate functions of Accessibility system on iOS. Apple introduced Accessibility in iOS to help those who suffer from visual impairment or hearing to use these functions but can be useful for any iDevice user.

This little add-on for Active insert into the list of available gestures and Invert Colors functions (to reverse the colors displayed on screen), VoiceOver (the function that reciting the words on screen) and zoom (zoom function that makes the text displayed).

Toggle Accessibility functions via Activator. This will add several actions to Activator used for toggling various Accessibility functions.

After almost a month after the publication of the final version of MobileNotifier’s tweak was announced, its developer, Peter Hajas released beta 5, which is the last version, it seems, as he said. For those who do not know yet, MobileNotifier is a new display system of push notifications from iOS,  more complex than that offered by Apple that we’ve used so far.

The beta Version 5 brings some improving of the performance but also some interesting new features and also quite useful. Among them is MobileReply, a function that allows us to respond directly to a notification when we receive it, regardless of what we do with our phone in that time, for example, if an SMS, so without having to be forced to open the Messages application to reply to the messages you receive.

MobileNotifier is a quite useful tweak and indeed represents a much more useful and comprehensive conception of the notifications of the IOS, then Apple would be able to inspire and to have something implemented in the next operating system, whose presentation will take place in just a few days, on 6 June at WWDC conference.

If you want to try this system of notification, you can install MobileNotifier from Cydia, repo: for free.
