How to Use SBSettings

Posted on the 27 November 2011 by Happywilson
SBSettings is a great tweak, but how do you use it? This post will tell you how. (It's SBSettings version 5.1)
When you slide the status bar, SBSettings will come down. It will look like this.
How to Use SBSettingsThere are many selections. The top are the toggles. The allow you to turn on or off somethings. If it's green then it is turned on, red it's off. For example, WiFi. In this picture, WiFi is green so that means that WiFi is turned on.
The next part is the five smaller toggles.
More- is the settings to configure SBSettings
Refresh- refreshes the toggles (useless)
Dock- Puts apps in the dock in SBSettings. (to do that go to More)
Respring- restarts the device
Power- gives you the choice to Reboot, Power Off, Safe Mode, or Lock, or Cancel.
The next part is the info. The first section is the IP Address, which tells you your Wifi and Data IP Address. Storage means how much stuff is on your device. In the pic it says "96MB on" That is all the Cydia packages downloaded. "2700 MB on /var" is the apps, music, videos
The most important part is to know how to use the "More" Section. This is where all the settings for SBSettings are located. Let's go down the list. Click on read more to go down the list.
