Suggested April 2024 Five Ways To Make The Most Of A File Manager On Jailbroken Ios

The vast majority of non-developers who jailbreak do it for the tweaks, and use Cydia almost exclusively to find, maintain, and update them.

However, jailbreaking your device brings much more than the ability to install tweaks; its real power lies in granting unfettered access to the filesystem, which allows you to make almost any change you like.

In this article, I’ll go through five of the most interesting and ubiquitous uses for file managers on iOS.

There are two main fully-featured file managers available on Cydia: Filza File Manager, and iFile. Both are excellent, but my preference is for Filza due to its more frequent updates and compatibility with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. Either way, take your pick, and let the minor amendments to system files commence!

Install tweaks manually

On occasion, you might find that a tweak you want is not available on a Cydia repository. Perhaps a developer has sent you an alpha version directly for testing, or perhaps it’s an older version of a tweak no longer available on a repo. You can use your file manager to install the tweak on your device instead.

1) Open your file manager.

2) Navigate through the filesystem to where your file is located. If you sent it via Airdrop or downloaded it from the internet and opened it with your file manager, it will be saved in /User/Documents.

3) Your tweak should be saved as a .deb file, a Debian package format used by Cydia for installations. Select it and an information screen will appear.

4) Press the “Install” button in the top-right to install your .deb file. When complete, the output on the screen will show the command prompt again.

5) Enjoy your tweak! You may need to respring your device for its effects to become visible. It should now also appear in the Cydia app in your “Installed” tab, with its repo listed as “Unknown / Local” because you did not download it from a Cydia repository. Now that it’s showing in Cydia, it can be managed from there. To remove it, select it in the list, touch “Modify” in the top-right, then select “Remove”. On the uninstallation screen which comes up, select “Confirm”. Done!

Block iAds

1) Open the file manager and navigate to /Applications.

2) Locate the item named chúng tôi This controls Apple’s iAds. Select the item (a short-hold on it in Filza), and select the option to “Rename” it.

3) Edit the file name by deleting the .app extension and replacing it with .bak, to give the name chúng tôi Then touch “Done” in the top-right to save your changes.

4) Next, navigate to /User/Library/Caches, and delete the entire folder named “”. In Filza, a swipe-left on the item and pressing the “Delete” button should do it.

Open and manipulate files not usually supported by iOS

Under stock iOS there are many file formats which are unsupported or else have very limited support, able to be opened only within certain programs. A couple of examples that spring to mind are .zip files and .plist files. While some apps can uncompress and create .zips within them (a great app that springs to mind here is Goodreader), they can only unzip a file within the app, and can only create .zips out of files saved in the app, hardly useful if you wish to deal with system files stored elsewhere. Similarly, .plists can be saved and moved between compatible apps, but not edited in place or created.

Let’s say I want to zip up all the photos in my camera roll on my device, for ease of sending on, or as a backup prior to some tinkering.

1) Launch the file manager and navigate to the files you want to zip, in my case, the photos stored at /User/Media/DCIM/100APPLE.

2) In Filza, touch “Edit” in the top-right, and select the files you want to compress, then “More” in the bottom-right. You should now see an option to “Create ZIP”, which will make an archive out of the files.

3) To unzip any such file in the file manager, simply select it, and it will unpack.

Filza also contains a built-in hex editor, and a .plist editor. For another example of manipulating non-standard formats in this way, see below.

Investigate the filesystem for threats

Many iOS malwares leave behind trace files which are not normally detectable without access to the filesystem. Using a file manager, we can look for these files, determine if we have been infected, and in some cases, remove them with a simple deletion. One example which has been covered on iDB in the past is Unflod.dylib, which was first noted on iOS 7. To determine whether you are infected by this, let’s open our file manager.

1) Navigate to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/.

2) Trawl down the list and look for a file named “Unflod.dylib”.

3) If absent, you are safe. If you see it, delete it, and reset your Apple ID password immediately. In the case of Unflod.dylib, it is also recommended to restore your device. Whilst that would be the end of your jailbreak and therefore file manager this time around, it does illustrate the utility of a file manager to identify the presence of these threats.

Tweak the UI of your device

Sometimes there just isn’t the exact tweak you want to customise the look and feel of your device. However, the right effect can often be achieved with some editing of system files. These two examples also show the power of file managers to edit .strings files in place.

To remove the “Enter passcode” text from your Lock screen:

1) Using your file manager, navigate to:


2) Select the file corresponding to the language your device is set to; mine was “en_GB.lproj”, but yours may be different and is likely “en.lproj”.

3) Inside that file, open up SpringBoardUIServices.strings and expand the list of fields by pressing the arrow symbol next to the word “Root”.

4) Search through for the field entitled “PASSCODE_MESA_ENTRY_PROMPT” and touch the information symbol to the right to edit. If you are on a non-Touch ID device, the field may be labelled differently here.

5) Edit the “VALUE” field to be empty, or if you prefer, a custom message, then press “Back” in the top-left. Some tweaks have the ability to add a custom string here, but I couldn’t find any which remove it completely so as to have no message at all.

6) In the top-right of the screen, press “Save” to make your changes stick. Other fields which may be of interest in this .strings file are “Cancel” and “Delete”, also for the passcode screen.

To remove all text from the “slide to power off” screen:

1) Using your file manager, navigate to:


2) Select the file corresponding to the language your device is set to; mine was “en_GB.lproj”, but yours may be different and is likely “en.lproj”.

3) Inside that file, open up SpringBoard.strings and expand the list of fields by pressing the arrow symbol next to the word “Root”.

4) Search through for the field entitled “POWER_DOWN_LOCK_LABEL” and touch the information symbol to the right to edit.

5) Edit the “VALUE” field to be empty, or if you prefer, a custom message, then press “Back” in the top-left. Some tweaks have the ability to add a custom string here, but I couldn’t find any which remove it completely so as to have no message at all.

6) In the top-right of the screen, press “Save” to make your changes stick.

7) Repeat steps iv-vi for the field entitled “POWER_DOWN_CANCEL”.

After a respring or reboot, the changes should be visible. To revert them, return to their locations with Filza and re-enter their original labels.

As these examples show, the ability to inspect and modify the filesystem on jailbroken iOS with a file manager is both powerful and versatile, and is only really limited by your own needs and the amount of digging you are prepared to do.

6 Ways To Make The Most Of Android’s Clock App

Who needs an alarm clock when you’ve got your Android phone handy? In the past year or so that I’ve relied on the Clock app on my Nexus 5X, I’ve rarely overslept. Now that I’ve got the hang of the Clock app’s various features and foibles, I’m close to replacing that “rarely” qualifier with a “never.”

Note: I tested these tips on a Nexus 5X running on Android version 7.1.2. Your settings and features may vary depending on the make and model of your phone.

Open the clock app with a single tap

The Android Clock app isn’t the sexiest app on my Nexus phone, but it’s certainly in the top five when it comes to apps I use the most—and given that, I hate having to dig around the Android app drawer to find it.

Ben Patterson / IDG

Opening Android’s Clock app gets a lot more fun once you’re hip to this trick.

Luckily, there’s a handy one-tap shortcut to the Clock app, and it’s probably already sitting on your home screen.

Just tap the Clock widget—the one that looks like a digital or analog clock face—and you’ll jump immediately to the Clock app. That may sound obvious, but I only discovered the shortcut myself a few weeks ago, and I can’t believe I’d missed it so long. (If you’re not already using the Clock widget, just tap and hold a blank space on the Android home screen, tap Widgets, then install a Clock widget by tapping its icon.)

Use the clock as your screensaver

Ben Patterson / IDG

When you use the Clock app as your screensaver, a digital clock will appear on your screen (very faintly, if you enabled the “night mode” setting) whenever your Android handset is connected to its charger. 

Gradually increase sound of alarm

Ben Patterson / IDG

Your Android alarm can gently rouse you with its “gradually increase volume” setting.

That’s why I’m a fan of the Clock app’s “Gradually increase volume” setting. Turn it on, and your alarm tone will start off whisper quiet, then slowly build until it reaches full volume, perfect for those of us who prefer a gentler wake-up call.

Use any sound file as an alarm tone

Nope, you don’t have to wake up to a canned Android alarm tone. As it happens, you can set the Clock app to rouse you with any song or sound you want, from Van Halen’s “Jump” to a sound file you grabbed from the web.

Ben Patterson / IDG

Want to wake up to Led Zeppelin? No problem.

Manage Do Not Disturb mode 

If you’re wondering how you overslept an Android alarm, Android’s Do Not Disturb feature is a likely culprit. When it’s set to “Total Silence” mode, Do Not Disturb will muzzle all Android notifications and alerts, including alarms.

Ben Patterson / IDG

Android will generally warn you about silenced alarms before you turn on Do Not Disturb mode manually; not so with “automatic rules,” though.

If you don’t, just know that any alarms you set during a particular automatic rule period won’t go off, meaning you may doze right through any early-morning meetings.

Silence an alarm after a set amount of time

One of the pitfalls of getting up early is forgetting to switch your alarm off—something you may realize when you step out of the shower and hear your alarm wailing…and wailing, and wailing.

Ben Patterson / IDG

You can set your Android alarm to shut itself automatically after a set amount of time, meaning you won’t drive anyone nuts if you step in the shower without dismissing your alarm first.

How To Get The Ios 10.3 Emoji On Your Jailbroken Device

If you’ve had trouble enabling the latest emoji using Bytafont, Anemone, or EmojiFontManager in the past, this guide is just what you need! These theming solutions are prone to quirks, and may not work at all (ahem, Bytafont) on higher firmwares.

The purpose of this guide is twofold:

1) To update your emoji from your current firmware’s (iOS 9 or 10.0-10.2) to those included in iOS 10.3+.

2) To avoid most of the more common installation problems you might encounter using other methods.

The changes between iOS 10.2 and iOS 10.3 are incredibly small, as shown in the image below:

Consequently, it might not be worth following this guide if you’re jailbroken on iOS 10.2, unless you have to have the absolute most recent revision. Of course, if your current theming solution is giving you bugs or performance issues, you should try this anyway.

Users on iOS 10.0-10.1.1 or below will gain all 72 new iOS 10.2 emoji by following this guide, plus the small changes above. They have good reason to give this a go, especially if they have emoji bugs with their current setup.

A final bonus of this method is that it will work with the iOS 11 emoji once they are available. Simply swap in the iOS 11 emoji font file for the iOS 10.3 one once it is released.

This method will work from iOS 5.1-10.2, but has small differences between firmwares, so in this guide I will concentrate on instructions for iOS 10.0-10.2. To install on iOS 9, carefully follow the differences mentioned in this guide. For even earlier firmwares use this manual page or try Bytafont.


A jailbroken device

Poomsmart’s Cydia repository

A copy of the iOS 10.3 emoji file

How to get the new iOS 10.3 emoji on your iPhone or iPad

1) First, launch Cydia and add the following repo:

Poomsmart’s repo contains the various packages we need to allow our device to handle the layout and attributes of the iOS 10.2+ emoji keyboard.

2) If you haven’t already, disable emoji theming in Anemone, Bytafont, and/or EmojiFontManager. Once the emoji are reverted to the stock ones for your firmware, uninstall BytaFont 3 and/or EmojiFontManager from Cydia (you can leave Anemone if you use it to theme other UI elements). If you were using EmojiFontManager, you should also uninstall all of its dependencies with it, such as EmojiLibrary, EmojiAttributes, etc.

3) Now uninstall any previously downloaded emoji font files from Cydia, to ensure they do not interfere. This includes fonts made for Bytafont, EFM, and Anemone. This step is optional, but rules out conflicts later on.

4) Transfer the iOS 10.3 emoji font file to your device via a method of your choice (AirDrop, email, SSH, etc.) The newest iOS 10.3 emoji file can be found on any Mac running the latest Sierra or High Sierra at /System/Library/Fonts/Apple Color chúng tôi or online.

If you’re happy with the slightly older (but very similar) iOS 10.2 emoji, they can be downloaded directly from Poomsmart’s GitHub:

5) Now launch Cydia and install these packages:

EmojiPort (iOS 10)



Filza File Manager

If you’re on iOS 10.2, you do not technically need to have any of the items above except Filza (and the iOS 10.3 emoji font file itself). However, if you want to use the iOS 11 emoji in future you will need the packages above, so you may as well install them now as they will do no harm. If you’re on iOS 10.0-10.1.1, you need the packages above regardless.

If you’re on any iOS 9, install EmojiPort (iOS 9.0-9.3) not EmojiPort (iOS 10). If you’re on iOS 9-9.1, you also need EmojiLocalization and EmojiResources. iOS 9.2+ do not need these two extra packages.

6) After installing and respringing, launch Filza.

7) Move the iOS 10.3 emoji font file from wherever you saved it to the folder on your device called /System/Library/Fonts/Core. You can see the 10.3 .zip I have moved into the folder in the picture below.

8) Now select the original font files which are in the folder. There will be either one or two, and they will be called AppleColorEmoji… Select them and compress them into a .zip file.

9) Call the .zip of the original fonts something like ORIGINAL FONTS DO NOT and leave it there. This is so we have a backup to put back in future if necessary. You can see the backup .zip in the image below.

10) Once the backup .zip is made, delete the original emoji font files from the folder, ready to be replaced by the iOS 10.3 one.

11) Now make sure the iOS 10.3 emoji font file is in the folder, and is named exactly the same as the files you just deleted. For example, on my device it had to be named [email protected] just like the original version was. If your device is not retina, it might not have “@2x” at the end. Check the original file name if you’re not sure. If it’s not identically named, it will not work.

12) Once the original font files are safely zipped into a backup, deleted, and the correctly named iOS 10.3 font file is in place, respring your device.

13) Open any messaging app and swap to the emoji keyboard. Check that the keyboard is displaying correctly, and you’re finished!

How to revert your changes

1) Delete the iOS 10.3 font file from /System/Library/Fonts/Core.

2) Unzip the original font files which you left in the folder as a backup.

3) Delete the backup .zip once the font files are unzipped from it.

4) Open Cydia and uninstall any of the following packages you may have:

EmojiPort (iOS 10)

EmojiPort (iOS 9.0-9.3)





5) Respring and check that your emoji are back to normal again.

And that’s all there is to it. These packages are useful in that they also allow you to view newer emoji in messages received on your device, and third-party apps such as Twitter and Safari. Enjoy expressing such emotions as “Facepalm” and “Rofl”, without giving up your jailbreak to do it!

When the iOS 11 emoji are released in a firmware, it will be possible to update to them by simply swapping the iOS 10.3 emoji file for the new one, provided you have followed this guide and installed Poomsmart’s packages.

These Are The Five Best Features Of Ios 16

Edit, unsend, and unread Messages on iOS 16

iOS 16 is bringing some major improvements to iMessage. When it’s available to all users, you’ll have 15 minutes to edit and two minutes to unsend any messages. This is very useful when you misspelled a word or send the wrong message to the wrong person.

When editing a message, Apple will now show the history of the edited message plus the user will have up to five chances to edit that content.

Unread, on the other hand, is useful to help you keep track of what messages you want to answer later. It’s important to notice that at least edit and unsend message features will need all devices to be running iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13 Ventura, or watchOS 9.

A brand new Lock Screen to your current iPhone

The most important feature of iOS 16 – or at least the most noticeable – is the new Lock Screen. It offers a handful of new customization, letting you edit the Lock Screen almost any way you want.

It’s easy to customize the font, color, or placement of elements on your Lock Screen by tapping them. With a multilayered photo effect, photo subjects are dynamically displayed in front of the time to make the subject of the photo pop.

In addition, you can also add, for the first time, widgets to the Lock Screen in iOS 16 — and not only widgets made by Apple, but third-party widgets as well.

iOS 16 brings groundbreaking Live Text feature to video

Live Text was already great with iOS 15. You could grab information from a photo by selecting the text available, a telephone or address, for example.

Now, with Live Text in videos, the text is completely interactive in paused video frames, so you can use functions like copy and paste, lookup, and translate.

In addition, Live Text with iOS 16 adds recognition of Japanese, Korean, and Ukrainian text. Last but not least, data detected in photos and videos is actionable with a single tap. Track flights or shipments, translate foreign languages, convert currencies, and more.

Focus Mode is getting even more useful in iOS 16

With iOS 15, I said Focus Mode was the most important feature of the update. Now, this function is getting even better.

For example, the Lock Screen can link with your Focus Mode. So if you’re working, your Lock Screen will reflect the Focus set.

With Focus filters, you can set Apple apps like Calendar, Mail, Messages, and Safari to draw boundaries for each Focus you enable. In addition, you can have a Focus turn on automatically at a set time or location, or while using a certain app, which is more useful than just a particular time.

For a passwordless future, meet Passkeys in iOS 16

Passkeys plans to replace passwords with an easier and safer sign-in method by using your face or fingerprint with Face ID/Touch ID.

It’s protected against phishing and website leaks, since passkeys never leave your device and are specific to the site you created them for, making it almost impossible for them to be phished or hacked.

In addition, Passkeys syncs across devices and lets you sign in to other devices. Apple says that it is trying to reach an industry standard so you can sign in to websites or apps on other devices, including non-Apple devices, with your saved passkey by scanning the QR code with your iPhone or iPad and using Face ID or Touch ID to authenticate.

How To Make The Most Of The Apple Watch Ultra’s Action Button

We may earn revenue from the products available on this page and participate in affiliate programs. Learn more ›

Back in September, Apple announced a new addition to the Apple Watch series: The Apple Watch Ultra. This new model is larger and more durable, and its battery life goes on for longer between charges. 

The Apple Watch Ultra is also different from the rest of Apple’s wearables because of its orange Action button, which users will find on the left-hand side of the device and gives quick access to a series of customizable shortcuts.

From a software perspective, the Apple Watch Ultra works the same as the rest of the newer models in the series, as they all run watchOS 9. But the Action button makes it easier to access and activate various features because when you’re out on the trail and in harsh weather conditions, pushing a physical button is simpler than having to look at the screen and tap on icons there.

How to use the Apple Watch Ultra’s Action button

The Action button is customizable, which means it’s up to you to decide what it does, but you’ll have to make your pick from a predetermined selection. Go to the Settings app on the Apple Watch Ultra, choose Action Button, and open the Action menu to see your options.

You can pick from Workout, Stopwatch, Waypoint, Backtrack, Dive, Flashlight, Shortcut, or None (which disables the Action Button completely). These functions all work slightly differently, and you may get more functionalities with subsequent taps. 

[Related: Everything you need to know about the Apple Watch Ultra]

Pick Shortcut, for example, and a press of the Action button will launch one of the Shortcuts on your phone. You can design these automations to adapt specifically to your lifestyle, so that you can turn off all your smart lights and put your phone into Do Not Disturb mode with the push of a button, for example. Go back to the first Action Button screen after selecting Shortcut (via the blue arrow, top left) to choose a specific sequence.

Additional options also appear if you select Workout from the Action menu. Go back to the Action Button screen (via the blue arrow) and tap First Press: You’ll then be able to pick the workout that the Action Button launches, or just have it open the Workout app so you can select something different each time.

In the middle of a workout, you can tap the Action Button again to access different functionalities. How the Action Button works will depend on the specific workout you’re doing (during a run, for example, it will create a new segment) but once you’ve decided on your exercise, the device will walk you through everything you need to know in the Gestures section of the Action Button screen.

Sometimes you’ll get extra features when pressing the Action Button and the Side button at the same time. For example, during any kind of workout, you can press the Action Button and the side button together to pause the workout. Again, you’ll get all of this information in the Gestures section on-screen.

Other Action Button functions are simpler. With Dive, for example, you just press the button to start a diving session, or when you select Waypoint, a press will drop a compass waypoint at your current location. Apple is also letting third-party apps add their own shortcut options for the Action Button. It will take some time for developers to create them, but depending on the apps installed on your wearable and your phone, you might start seeing more functionalities on the list besides the built-in ones. 

There’s one more way in which you can use the Action Button: Press and hold it to bring up the emergency menu, which includes Siren, Medical ID, Compass Backtrack, and Emergency Call. If you hold the button for another five seconds, you’ll automatically activate the Siren, a continuous high-pitched sound someone can hear up to 600 feet away.

[Related: Apple Watch comparison: Which one is right for you?]

The siren will keep ringing until you turn it off again via the large red stop button in the Siren app, or until your Apple Watch Ultra runs out of battery. If you’re sure that you never want to trigger this feature automatically, from the Settings app on your Apple Watch Ultra choose Action Button and then deactivate Hold to Turn On under the Siren heading.

If you prefer to configure these Action Button shortcuts through the Watch app on your iPhone, you’ll see an Action Button heading on the My Watch tab in the app: Tap on it to get to all the same functions we’ve already covered, including the Action menu, the First Press menu, and the Gestures section that tells you what subsequent button presses do in your selected mode.

Five Ways Data Science Has Evolved

According to Figure Eight’s Annual Data Science Report, 89% of data scientists love their activity, up from 67% in 2024. 49% of data scientists get reached in any event once every week for a new job. Data Scientists are essentially more inclined by almost 75% to trust that AI will be great on the planet when compared with 39% of morals experts. A ton has changed since the organization’s unique Data Science Report in 2024. Machine learning ventures are increasing and an ever-increasing number of data is required to drive them. Data Science and machine learning employments are LinkedIn’s more quickly developing occupations. Also, the web is making 2.5 quintillion bytes of information every day to power every last bit of it. Until a couple of years back, just a bunch of us had known about

Data science is more applied than any time in recent memory Difficulties Involved while dealing with Noisy Datasets Knowledge of applied science wins

Understanding the inside operations of the black box has turned out to be less imperative, except if you are the maker of the black box. Less data scientists with genuinely deep learning of statistical strategies are kept in the lab making the secret elements that ideally get coordinated within tools. This is to some degree baffling for long time data experts with thorough statistical foundation and understanding, however, this way might be important to genuinely scale modeling endeavors with the volume of information, business questions, and complexities we currently should reply.  

Transition from Data-Poor to Data-Rich

As organizations progress from data poor enterprises to data-rich, wide experience and an intensive foundation in both data science and pure sciences will be required. With institutes hurrying to overcome any issues and adjusting educational programs to current industry request, the supply gap will steadily diminish. However, as individuals in their late 20s, 30s and even 40s hope to turn towards a profession in data science, they ought to essentially expand on critical, applied learning and get genuine hands-on understanding. One can’t turn into a data analyst with only one analytics track or online accreditation, one needs to augment a solid applied statistics program. Hands-on experience can go far in clearing the most troublesome ideas of data science.  

Data Science is both art and science Data science and statistics are interconnected

As the field develops, the job of data scientists will evolve. One of the definitions being bandied around is that data scientists are experts in statistics. In any case, it may not be the situation with the current part which has floated from the engineering field. We have frequently heard that data science can’t be more than statistics. Sean Owen, Director of Data Science at Cloudera noticed that statistics and numerical processing have been associated for a considerable length of time, and as in every aspect of computing, we generally ache for approaches to analyse somewhat more data. As indicated by John Tukey’s paper The Future of Data Analysis, statistics must wind up worried about the dealing with and processing of data, its size, and perception. In any case, today many individuals from different background, even economics, guarantee to be data scientists. Truth be told, the research additionally spread out a couple of characterized occurrences where a portion of the data science-related tasks could turn out to be totally automated, robotized selection and tuning. The tasks that will end up being the center range of abilities later on are, highlight building and model approval, comprehension of the area, machine learning.
