    Very safe. Mikoto has been out for quite some time (iOS 8 jailbreaks). You can trust it.

    Thanks for the quit response. Wanted something to disable iOS updates.

    Well, Mikoto is the tweak for that. One of the major features.

    In my whole time jbing, I never tried Mikoto. Worth having? I just know it's supposedly like a pocket knife and that's all I know lol.

    I think so just for hiding or disabling iOS updates but I didn't really look at all the other options yet.

    Oh yes, it's worth having!

    As stated, just for the fact that it can remove the update nag alone. It's the ONLY tweak I have found on iOS 8 and 9 that can take care of this.

    As for the rest of what it does, that's effective too. You can use it to kill the NC and the CC if you like - or not. Lots of different options for system stuff. It complements Sprigntomize in that way.

    Looks like she keeps it up to date to. And from the sounds of it, it doesn't sound like a tweak that could end up being a battery drainer either.

    It's not a battery drainer, I can attest to that.

    angelXwind is one of the pillars in the JB community. Well trusted.

    Thanks for the heads up I'll give it a shot then. I'm just paranoid about to many apps or conflicts with other Swiss Army knife Cydia stuff, like HideMeX :confused:.

    I hear you. HideMeX has had some issues since the 9.0.2 JB though. They haven't seemed to fix it.

    Not exactly sure as HideMeX isn't a tweak I've ever used. But I recall mention of hiding stuff and it not working or hiding stuff and other stuff disappearing. This morning someone was asking on reddit about how he could fix HideMeX because he hid something in his status bar and it therefore also decided to hide his alarm icon.

    Don't think the problems were showstoppers, just annoyances.

    Ah that's nothing huge then and not something I use anyways. Just hide the Stocks and Tips apps. Guess when I get home I'll give Mikoto a shot. Any settings you suggest checking out? Sounds like theres a ton. :D

    I was going to take some screenshots to show you my settings - then I realized, that's a lot of screenshots because there's a lot of options.

    So, no nothing I recommend per se. It's mainly just your own personal preference as to how you want things to work.

    For instance, there is a setting that forces the active app to be the first app you see in the app switcher. I prefer that, others may not. Things like that. You'll just have to look through it.

    Be sure to respring when you've made your choices though.

    Actually thats one of my main gripes with every time in the app switcher. So this is a bonus for sure. I Googled fast and also saw that it disables Youtube ads?

    I'm not sure about the YouTube ads. I have not paid any attention and I use Dolphin usually when I want to see a YT video (usually on my iPad). Dolphin has a native ad blocker so from that perspective I couldn't tell you anything.

    Suppose I can give it a try and report back afterwards.
