Fold To Unlock iPhone Concept Becomes A Jailbreak Reality

Posted in Apple News, iPhone on 24/05/2012 by Henry Taylor-Gill


A popular concept last week showed what an iPhone would look like with a fold to unlock functionality instead of the normal swipe to unlock. However German jailbreak developer Jonas Gessner has taken the idea one step further, making it a reality if you have a jailbroken iPhone, iDownloadBlog reports.

Dubbed Unfold, it’s available on Cydia under the BigBoss repo, and it’s completely free. There is nothing to configure and it doesn’t affect anything else like notifications or other tweaks like LockInfo or Camera Grabber.

Unfortunately this doesn’t work on iPads yet, but if you have a jailbroken iPhone, it might be work testing this out and it will make your device look one heck of a lot cooler.
