Earlier, we had reported that third party widgets for iOS 5 notification center were possible. Now, moments ago, a new package has been released in Cydia. Called UISettings, this is the first third party widget for the iOS 5 notification center. Best of all, its free!

UISettings for iOS 5 has functions similar to SBSettings. Once installed, UISettings appears in the notification center right away, above the notifications and below the default notification center widgets. UI Settings lets you re-spring your device, power it off, reboot it and it also allows you to turn WiFi, Bluetooth and Airplane mode On or OFF straight from the notification center and you can also adjust brightness without having to go in the Settings.app
To get UISettings on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 5 beta 1, you must follow the guide we posted on how to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 1 tethered using redsn0w 0.9.8b1 for Mac. Once you have jailbroken iOS 5 on your device, simply add this repository in Cydia: http://qwertyoruiop.com/beta. 

Then download UISettings for iOS 5 notification center from this repository and you are good to go. We’re hopeful that many great widgets for the notification center will be coming in the near future, as UISettings is just the start.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
