Activator beta for iOS 8.3 has actually been launched with support for iPhones, iPads and iPods jailbroken utilizing the most recent TaiG device. More details on the tweak and how to install right now can be discovered here.

For those who do not understand, Activator, developed by Ryan Petrich, is a popular jailbreak tweak which allows you to set customized gestures to launch pre-defined actions. For example, you can set Activator to show up or down the brightness of the display just by swiping up and down on the screen, or you can set it to introduce a certain app when a specific gesture is carried out. It’s a really effective tool and possibilities with Activator are virtually endless.


And now, a beta version of Activator has been launched to support the most recent iOS 8.3 jailbreak. It is ready to download right now. It is crucial to note that Activator requires Cydia Substratum to work. Install it just if you got updated version of TaiG (2.1.0 or 2.1.1) with fix for Cydia Substrate when it was readily available yesterday for a short while.
