Cydia doesn't respect the Settings->Sounds Keyboard Clicks toggle. As seen here or here. Other jailbreak apps like iFile have the same problem like here. In case other people on the web are looking for a solution I thought I'd post my success.

The reason is that these apps are looking at the var/root/library/preferences which does not contain a com.apple.preferences.sounds.plist. so it uses the default value of On for the keyboard clicks. Setting a symlink for the com.apple.preferences.sounds.plist in the root preferences directory to point to the mobile preferences directory fixes the issue.

Here is the file you are linking.


I did all this on my iPhone using iFile but you could just as easy do it using SSH or whatever.

Navigate to mobile preferences directory.


Copy/Link the com.apple.preferences.sounds.plist


Paste the link in the rooth preferences directory. Here is the root preferences directory showing the symlink in blue.

Thanks grockk

and for those (me for example ;)), who can enter into MobileTerminal but always get the syntax on the linking wrong:

Code:
ln -s /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.preferences.sounds.plist /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.preferences.sounds.plist

This is a great find. It's one of those things that's kinda obvious but no one in the world seems to have thought of it until now.

Is that long bar in your status bar a data meter? If so what tweak is it? Thank You

Typo. Should be root, not rooth, like it says in the second sentence of that same line.
