    Have these just been updated today? I tried them yesterday and got the usual 1/4 screen for safari, messages etc. So uninstalled.

    Tried it today, installed from the bigboss beta repo, then went back into Cydia and it showed an update available for both of them, so I did that and they are working great! It is version 5.0b for sbsettings and 1.5.6-3 for activator.

    I have disabled the top bar swipe, and instead set it to be part of notification centre. It's awesome. I'm happy to be on iOS5 now. Tethered doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    I added the BigBoss beta repo( to my Cydia, after I read your post here. Neither SBSettings nor Activator shows the updated version you have posted here? :confused:

    I think SBSettings is 3.3.1, and Activator is: 1.5.6. And there is CLEAR warning on Activator's page in Cydia that it is NOT compatible with iOS 5 beta. I guess iOS 5 GM is included.

    Would like to know where I have possibly done wrong--is the BigBoss beta repo address I quoted above correct, for instance?

    I really miss SBSettings, tbh.

    I tried UIsettings, I wasn't that impressed. BBsettings however seems to be brilliant. I have disabled sbsettings and will test it for a couple of days!!

    Thanks for the tip! I have since added the repo. However, Activator's page still shows a warning about its not being compatible with iOS 5 beta. So I am going to wait a few more days for the formal release of Activator and SBSettings.

    And BBSetiings is working fine for me, except the brightness slider is not that responsive.

    If I remember correctly, it doesn't say it's not compatible, it just says iOS 5 is not supported. But it's working fine, unlike some previous releases. Note it's version "1.5.6-3" instead of "1.5.6"

    I have to say I'm in love with the new SBSettings - it's exactly how I imagined Notification Center Toggles to be.

    That being said, it was pretty tough to configure, and some of the settings don't work (anyone had luck hiding the toggle labels yet???) And I wouldn't mind the icons being a bit smaller.

    And Activator doesn't work while the phone is locked. With iOS4 that was one of the best features - just slide the bar on the lock screen and there you have it. I've disabled Activator completely until this feature is fixed. It seems close - you can swipe on the lock screen, then unlock, and there is SBSettings pop-up window.

    This was the last piece of the iOS 5 jailbreak puzzle for me (other than Untethered, of course...) - I just discovered FakeClockUp and it works great. My phone really does feel brand new.
