ScreenDimmer 1.45 – support for iOS 4.0

Author: Yllier  //  Category: Apps

ScreenDimmer has been updated and does now support the iOS 4.0 :). Also improvements have been mate to offer a great experience with backgrounding (both native and Backgrounder).

if you don’t know about ScreenDimmer:
ScreenDimmer can help you to save battery life by automatically dimming your device’s screen after a pre-defined time; or if you wish by turning the backlight off.

Most users suffer unnecessary battery drain while having their iPhone not on standby. Setting auto-lock to a short time makes it better, but is an inconvenience most of the time due to permanent locking and unlocking while waiting for something.

ScreenDimmer is the solution for this problem: Save battery life by reducing the backlight to a minimum if the device hasn’t been used for a pre-defined time and reduce the waste of the most energy consuming component, the backlight, of the iPhone or iPod.

Free yourself from worrying about locking your device

    Screendimmer 1.45-2 is crashing my SpringBoard!! Everything was find before I updated, so I think the last version has problems with my iPod model or firmware version.

    I’m using an iPod Touch 2G with iPhone OS 3.1.2.

    I’m absolutly sure that ScreenDimmer is the source of my problems, because I restored and jailbreaked again several times (using each time one of this methods: Redsnow 0.9.4, Spirit, Blackra1n and Jailbreakme 2.0) and installed ONLY ScreenDimmer 1.45-2 via Cydia. The result was always the same: SpringBoard crashes, iTunes can’t sync properly and SpringBoard icons dissapeared.

    Of course, I purchased the package.

    Sorry for my very very bad english, I hope you update Screendimmer soon.

    I have the same problem. This is the first time I bought an app from Cydia and now my iPod Touch 2G (3.1.3) won’t boot anymore!

    What a waste.
