Firewall iP 2.0 now available

Author: Yllier  //  Category: Apps, Jailbreak

Firewall iP, the first and only Firewall for iOS, got updated to 2.0!

Changelog 2.0:

  • full IPv6 support (be advised that many Internet Service Providers don’t even support IPv6 yet, so if you aren’t able to access a IPv6 only server, it’s not FiP’s fault ;))
  • all new rules are being saved with date and time. Now you can look up which rules you created last
  • totally new way of showing the popup.
  • redesigned popup
  • Option to have the Deny Tab in front (Settings in the GUI)
  • a field on the PoPup which shows the url (TCP) or the data packet (UDP) (if possible)
  • if the hostname has more than 2 parts (more than, when you tap on the selector for “normal, *, and *.” you’ll be able to select parts of the hostname the rule will apply to
  • Option to Import/Export FiP settings (one file) so you can easily backup your stuff (Settings in the GUI)
  • support for port ranges
  • many other enhancements and fixes
  • GameCenter support: added support for the game center daemon (a process which runs in the background). You’ll have to REBOOT your device after installation to enable this (Saurik will fix that in a future MobileSubstrate update). IMPORTANT: because game center is actually an own progress which runs in the background and starts running when a game needs it, rules applied to the Game Center Daemon will affect all apps. You can use allow/deny (all) session to make changes for every game.

Firewall iP is the only security app of its kind and offers many advance features like getting WhoIs-informations about the host.

Block outgoing TCP & UDP connections selectively

Shows you the hostname for the connection & can provide you with WhoIs information

Block connections of apps when you are on a cellular network

Block analytic providers / data collectors which PrivaCy can’t

Block unneeded content (ads ;))

Easy to use interface & control app

and many more….

Firewall iP is available in the CydiaStore for only $2.99

    Always like to see updates! Nice popup change too.

    Any chance it’ll be able to completely block iAds in the future?

    Thanks so much for SBSettings. I still love it. Upgraded my iPod Touch 4G to iOS 4.3.1 and now there is a problem with POWER/LOCK. I use it all the time. Now it crashes to Safe Mode. I hope you can fix it. Thanks again.

    I love this app, as it allows me to control my iPod the way I want to.
    It’s definitely a major plus that I can block ads. :D
    The only issue I’ve had is, since I’ve installed, the standard App Store seems to crash to Springboard when I try to install something.
    It’s not a huge deal, since I can find most of the free apps in Installous anyways, but I’d like to be able to save time and just use the App Store.
    Any ideas?

    never heard of that, but you really should direct this issue to the author directly – I’m sure he doesn’t check this comment roll since this article was posted in February. There’s a contact/author button in Cydia
