    Everyone raves about SBSettings, I downloaded a airplane safe mode? Theme I believe and I deleted it to use Edius HD, and now I can't use Edius, because it doesn't pop up anywhere. And also my MakeItMine app doesn't work, why would this interfere, do I need to delete strings somewhere? And why won't Edius HD work?

    But what is the major advantage of SBSettings? I don't see the greatness of it. Why get it? Thank you.

    its just a quicker way to access some settings

    like brightness
    toggle on/off things like
    3G
    Bluetooth
    wi-Fi
    Airplane Mode

    plus many more toggles you can find on cydia

    Sbs settings makes changing settings on the fly; one of most used apps.

    I know this, but it seems fairly flawed. It just won't work. I downloaded one that worked but it looks like crap, and none of the others work. What am I doing wrong? And why would it interfere with MIM!? (Make It Mine). Just really frustrating..

    Ad thank you for the better white icon tip! Looks much better thank you.

    Have you gone into Settings>Activator and then assigned SBSettings to an action?

    Lycanthroat, when I go into activator I can't find my Sbsetting that downloaded anywhere when I go to select an action fr it. For my last theme o didnt even have to select one it was just the top status bar swipe. I must be doing something wrong.

    SBSettings is wonderful for shortcuts. All sorts of themes work. User error does not equal SBSetting/themes not working. :)

    One of the best things it does is give you access to SafeMode (through the power settings) so that if you lock up your phone by installing something that makes your phone very... unhappy, you can activate SBSettings and then turn on SafeMode and disable what you just did. A real lifesaver. Also, SHSH is there. And Processes. And Location. And WiFi and Bluetooth. I use it more than any other tweak on my phone.

    You probably have some activator settings that need to be configured.

    settings>activator>anywhere

    Most people use swiping left/right on the status bar to activate their SBSettings panel, but you can of course customize it.

    I figured out my probl, I just needed to go to More and then SBSettings theme... It was on default I guess and that was my problem. Very happy to have a better looking one up now. Thank you for your help guys.
