Boost the signal on your jailbroken Apple iPhone with this 99 cent app
If you have a jailbroken Apple iPhone running iOS 7, Signal Booster is designed to improve the signal on your handset, according to the developer. Tapping the screen forces your iPhone to do a network reset in the hope of connecting to a stronger cell providing a better connection. The app supports the recent iOS 7 jailbreak, but works on devices running iOS 5 or higher.

Users open up the Signal Booster app by tapping on the icon from the home screen, wait for it to close, and then watch for an improvement in the voice or data signal. There is no fancy processing done as the app merely offers a way to shut down a weak cell connection and open up another one, with hopefully a stronger connection.

Signal Booster is available from BigBoss and costs $.99. The first untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 became available just last month. Those interested in the process can follow our step-by-step directions on how to jailbreak your iOS 7 powered iPhone with the understanding that you could end up bricking your expensive device. Even if you're successful, you will void your warranty.

I thought the Jailbreak for iOS 7 was unstable? When it got announced the creator of Cydia came out and said it wasn't ready. If its ready now can someone let me know if it is i want to jailbreak my ipads.

It's stable. iPhone 5 runs smooth and buttery.

That wasn't the actual creator of cydia just some nut on this forum going by the same name (saurik).

best hackers in the world dont need months to stabilize something. Cydia was never unstable. It was all the developers tweaks in cydia that needed updating, which also doesnt take long to happen. Mine is JBroken and works like a charm.

This isn't rooting where you're possibly left with a stamp saying you rooted. With the iDevices, all you have to do is factory reset or update to the next update.

Why do you need to jailbreak with iDevices in the first place? I didn't have to root my Note 3, it just work.

that piece of crap "just works", c'mon man, and @papasmurf, the note 3 is something that only people without brain could buy, fake leather, fake metal, cheap plastic, specs that are just lined up for an android device and yea, the awful designed by kids laggy UI. Please... really please...

TouchWIZ doesn't lag on the Note 3. I know a couple of people who have it, it's smooth and fluid. Not that I'm a huge fan of TW, but claiming it lags on the Note 3 means either you've never tried one or you have an agenda.

Lags? Never has it lagged or even stuttered. Stop spreading BS and lies on the net solely because it's the best phone on the market.

Troll.

Lol designed by kids laggy ui, because iOS 7 design isn't for two year old and so smooth, the irony.

Finalflash, glad you are enjoying your new Android skin on your iDevice called iOS 7. Heard its a bit laggy too but you got to understand that iDevice with only 1Gb ram is hardly considered a mid end Android device in 2014.

Enjoy!!.

Dowson, touchwiz dosen't lagg on Note 3 :p. and people buy it for an increase in screen size and maybe for the easy handling with the S-pen. I'm not a fan of touchwiz either. but it seems you don't know sh*t about the note 3 except how its built.
Btw the idiot who actually wants Real leather on a phone is dumb. you have to spray it and moisturize it daily to weekly depending on the ocation.. and that is really annoying (If it was going to have the same soft feel). No i don't own a note 3 but i've tested it a couple of times and i know a couple of friends who own one.

This app seems like it may be a complete waste.

Pull up Control Center. Airplane Mode is the first quick setting. Switching it on and off resets the connection....and you can do it on the lockscreen, inside a game. Anywhere.

Both Samsung and Apple need to boost signals. My iPhone 5 and Note many times show one bar in outlying areas. Mean while my Lumia 1020 has a full signal.

Samsungs UI on the Note 3 isn't laggy and runs smooth, Signal strength is another issue.

Why would you worry about that, what with your outrage in a recent article over app piracy? Is it OK to void your warranty and cover it up if you need it?

I don't know for USA but in Netherlands, jailbreak/root doesn't void warranty.

Yea but it can easily be fixed, also if i brick my Android device i can fix it myself ;). i'm not sure if that works as easily on iOS devices. Also i don't get why people root except for Samsung devices if they don't want TW :p.

If you have Sprint, you'll be needing this A LOT.

I'm assuming you don't know anything jailbreak related. You can get this "99¢" app for free by using a different source to download the same package, that doesn't charge.

LOL. So true. I don't even understand how Sprint has customers.
