    Curious to know what others have set theres up to do.

    I tried to stay away from the notification bar taps, but

    volume down-hold = quickGoogle!
    volume up-hold = sbsettings
    tap home button three times = 1avideo camera
    swipe from bottom= app switcher

    Lockscreen:
    Doubletap statusbar: Bypass lock
    Doubletap clock: Phone app
    Swipe clock right: iMessage

    Anywhere:
    hold power button: DisplayRecorder
    TriplePress Home: SBSettings

    The swipes don't seem to be very sensative. Am I not swiping correctly or is it slightly broken?

    When I had a 3GS, my lock button was broken. So I had holding the volume down to lock it.

    ..really the only thing I tweaked.

    The only activator gesture I have set up is
    Short hold "home" button - MultiCleaner (close all apps, home screen only)

    Pre-iOS5, I had status bar double tap for SBSettings, but now I've got SBSettings in the notification center.

    I gotta ask you how to set that up:)
    I go into activator,at lockscreen and then sleep button and then what options you set to do that.
    Everything I tried still gives me the option to power down.

    That's brilliant! I'm gonna do this too. With a password lock, it'll make it impossible for a thief to turn off the phone and disable FindMyIphone (aside from them restoring, of course).

    Exactly.
    But they can always pop out the sim card so the phone has no data or way to transfer its location info back to find my iphone.
    But its still something, not all thieves know much about tech stuff.

    Ah, true. But I've got a VZW iPhone 4 (CDMA), so no sim card... :)

    I may be an idiot missing something simple, but how do you set up Activator to do this? I can't figure it out. Under "sleep button," I've got 2 options - double tap and short hold, and there's no option under them that I can see to "do nothing."

    Oh, you're good then.
    You will be able to track it if you notice it fast untill they either restore it or battery dies.
    I havent been able to figure it out either:)
    Waiting on Intell to chime in.

    After checking my Activator I can't figure it out. Under the "At Lockscreen" -> "Short Hold - Sleep Button" -> "System Actions" there was once a "Do Nothing" action. It is oddly absent now. But other actions have the "Do Nothing" option. It would appear that rpetrich removed that as an option.

    To get it back here's what I did. Navigate to /Library/Activator/Listeners/libavtivator.system.nothing and edit the info.plist by removing the "libactivator.lock.hold.short" from the "incompatible-events" array. Respring and look in your Activator settings. The "Do Nothing" for a short hold of the sleep button will be back.

    Thanks for your help bro.
    I just installed icaughtya from cydia and seems to have that option automaticly.
    It also takes a pictures with the front facing camera and emails it to you when someone enters the wrong password or tries to turn off the phone.
    Turning off is disabled on lockscreen when the passcode is on with this package. Pretty cool to have and at you get a picture of the thief and time, date and location information with email or text.
