I'd like to record audio discreetly with my iPhone 5. The IOS default Voice Memos app would be fine, but it displays a pulsating red status bar on the top of the home screen while using the devices microphone. Does anyone have a solution for that?

I believe springtomize 3 has a setting that hides the recording status bar view. Idk if that's what it hides though so you might want to double check.

Doesn't seem to work on my 7.0.4 iPhone 5 with a legal (non-cracked) Springtomize 3 install.

Other global functionalities work like:

- animation speed setting to 0.3 (sadly, it can't be decreased to 0.0 to give instant animations - unlike with com.marcosinghof.noslowanimations, which I still prefer to Springtomize 3 in this respect)

- faking the carrier

Nevertheless, enabling "Recording" hiding doesn't work:

Same here, iOS 7.0.4, iphone 5S. Installed springtomize 3 mainly for hiding the annoying red recording bar. However, the config switch does not work...

Is it working for anyone else, perhaps on non-arm64 devices?

Doesn't work on 32-bit devices either - see my earlier post.

I just made a Flex patch for this (if not on the flex cloud yet, it should be shortly). Download Flex and search for the Voice Memos patch titled "Stealth Mode". :D

minimising risks

Carlanga: yeah, but if in any case I'd touch the device I immediately got busted..

Good bye big pulsating red bar :)

It worked!! Thank you sinfool.

It works great on my iPhone 5 IOS 7.1
I bought the original version of Flex 2.
I have to say that springtomize 3 didn't succeed hiding the red recording bar, but yours Flex Stealth Mode works fine.

I am attempting to create a Flex patch for this for the app "Heard" but I am having no luck whatsoever. May I please trouble you to help me identify the Target Method that controls the double height and red color of the status bar when it's recording in the background? I took a look at your patch, and I'm pretty sure it is not named the same in the Heard app.
