    I just wanted to say I love the "Activator" that Cydia installs under Settings.

    But what are the best gestures you use for easy access?

    I personally like:

    Drag on status bar

    Swipe left or right on status bar

    Press both volume buttons

    swift right on the status bar is SBsettings

    swipe left is bring up quick compose for bitesms

    drag down on status bar is to mimic the sleep/lock button

    double tap the status bar turns on the flashlight (springflash)

    hold volume up brings up the keypad

    hold volume down brings up phone favorites

    if you guys could suggest anything more useful for my hold up/down volume buttons then please by all means let me know. couldnt think of anything else more useful :confused:

    swipe right on statusbar brings up sbsetting
    swipe left on statusbar launches last open application
    swipe down on statusbar brings up the quick compose bitesms
    double tap on statusbar clears all multitasking background (multicleaner)
    springboard pinch acts as sleep/lock button
    holding down-volume button used to be springflash but i got rid of it because it wouldn't work when the phone is asleep.

    I almost forgot about that one.
    I love that one as well!

    Do you ever have problems with the springboard page
    moving when trying to "pinch?"

    I would suggest using it to open up the camera app...
    To take quick snapshots whenever you need it.

    I have a package installed that lets you use volume buttons as a shutter. :)

    good idea, though i should probably update activator if i want to open the app from the lockscreen. what mod do you have that allows you to use the volume button to take pics?

    ^ there's one in cydia called snaptap but it doesn't work on most other camera app other than the stock apple camera app which is too bad

    Yeah it'll let me open the camera straight from lockscreen;
    Or anywhere for that matter! :)

    I got a mod called "SnapTap."

    It's under the default sources in Cydia, so you could search it.
    Very useful mod IMO.

    This is what I do and its definitely my favorite. I have this with TV Tube Sleep and the whole effect of pinching the screen with the tv animation turning off the screen looks great.

    Does anyone use the power connect/disconnect activator options for anything? I can't think of anything I'd want to run when I plugged my iPhone in...

    the only thing i can think of is to to set power connect / disconnect to play/pause. So when you are driving with the iphone connected to the car's power, if you stop to get gas and turn off the car, the iphone music pauses and then resumes when you turn the car back on.... but that seems like kind of a stretch

    Wow these are amazing. I've never opened the settings so I never even realized there are so many different options.
