Decide yourself, Security for your iPhone and iPod touch

Firewall iP is now available on CydiaStore for only $1.99.

Firewall iP allows you to block outgoing connections (TCP & UDP). It hooks into applications from AppStore and Cydia. Firewall iP will alert you if the app wants to establish a connection to a host and shows you the hostname. Then you have the options to allow/deny the connection once/always or allow/deny all connections for the application.

You can decide if the application will send data. Developers will no longer be able to collect stats about you (UDID, phone number, usage statistics…) or even collect personal data. With Firewall iP you can cover all app analytic providers which aren’t in PrivaCy and also custom analytics.

You can block some content too. Now you are the one who decides!

In the control app you can edit the rules for each 3rd party application as well as add new applications to the list. It also offers a switch to disable Firewall iP and a SBSettingsToggle for the same purpose.

Cydia itself is excluded for obvious reasons.

  • Block outgoing TCP & UDP connections selectively
  • Shows you the hostname for the connection
  • Block analytic providers which PrivaCy can’t
  • Block unneeded content
  • Easy to use interface & control app
  • Edit the rules you did set
  • Add apps manually
  • Low memory & CPU consumption

After installation and a respring it will start to monitor outgoing connections.

CyDelete – Uninstall Cydia packages from SpringBoard!

Author: Dustin Howett  //  Category: Apps, Jailbreak

Since the dawn of Cydia, users have been struggling to remove applications they’ve installed with it. Uninstalling a package is a seven-step operation at best: Start Cydia, Manage, Packages, (locate package), Modify, Remove, Confirm.

With the advent of CyDelete, however, Cydia packages can now be removed like any App Store applications- hold down the icon, wait for them to start wiggling, and tap the X. What was once cumbersome is now integrated into the standard iPhoneOS workflow. It is a lightweight MobileSubstrate plugin that only does anything in Wiggle Mode.

CyDelete will not remove applications that are not managed by Cydia, though they will be branded with an X. From SpringBoard’s standpoint, applications managed by Cydia and applications just sitting in /Applications are one and the same. CyDelete will also not remove Cydia itself, for safety reasons.

Without further ado, some screenshots!
Delete Colloq? Presto! It's Gone!

With the release of 1.0.0, it is expected that some uninstallations may fail, and that some packages may incorrectly be flagged as removable when they’re not, and not removable when they are, and that there will be crashes. For that reason, there is a “Bug Report” link available on the Cydia information page for CyDelete. Please submit any failures you encounter. Here is the link.
