Combination Lock : Old School Combination Lock To Your iOS Lockscreen
Combination Lock, a brand new jailbreak tweak that just recently touched down on Cydia, makes me feel a bit nostalgic. It takes me back to my high school days when I used to use a combination lock for my school locker. It’s been so long since I’ve used one of those locks, but this new jailbreak tweak resuscitates the experience.
A combination lock is a type of lock that uses a rotating dial to input a sequence of numbers. You’ll find these kind of locks on safes, lockers etc.
If you’re looking to add a little flair to the iOS Lock screen, then you should take Combination Lock for a spin (pun intended). Have a look at our video walkthrough to see what I mean.
Once the tweak is installed, you don’t have to do anything. Combination Lock will immediately be activated upon installation.
Once Combination Lock is installed, the tweak starts working immediately. You’ll notice that your normal passcode entry menu on the Lock screen has been replaced by a circular combination-styled lock.
The nice thing about Combination Lock is that you can still simply tap on the digits to quickly enter your device’s passcode. Or, if you want to harken back to the days of yesteryear (I understand that people still use combination locks, I’m just being dramatic), you can turn the dial to enter each digit sequentially.
Simply turn the dial and hold the number for a second to input it. You can also input your passcode by tapping on the digits, if you’re in a hurry. This is mainly an aesthetic tweak and doesn’t really provide any improvements. Just makes your lockscreen look cooler.
At times, the dial doesn’t work as mentioned and will or will not input your digit. The combination lock is translucent, which means your wallpaper will be somewhat visible. Another nice touch.
Combination Lock is available free right now on the BigBoss repo, and I do recommend giving it a try, even though it’s not totally perfect yet. Have you tried it? Sound off down below in the comment section with your thoughts and opinions.
