Pinch to unlock: Unlock iPhone with a “pinch” [Jailbreak]



Pinch to unlock  is a new Cydia  tweak that recently appeared in the online store of third party applications and offers users a new way to hack iDevices and unlock the screen. Instead of the traditional swiping to “Unlock” is proposed to make a gesture “pinch” two fingers.

In fact, after installing Pinch to unlock you can use any gesture anywhere on the screen. This could be a classic “pinch” or “Zoom” (mixing or dilution of the fingers), swipe down or horizontally, a circular rotation, etc. In general, a rich space for imagination and experimentation.

Cydia tweak released in the repository ModMyi and distributed free of charge. Pinch to unlock no additional configuration and works immediately after installation.


To use Pinch to unlock, need to perform the jailbreak. To do this, download Absinthe 2.x for Windows, Mac OS X or Linux, to literally one click to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1. Also, you can download Sn0wbreeze, as well as the command line interface from the CLI iPhone Dev Team. Tethered jailbreak iOS 6 for A4 devices can be done with Redsn0w following our tutorial.
