In case you’re questioning, there’s one other tweak referred to as Cydia Timeout that we talked about earlier than. That tweak does one thing comparable, decreasing the timeout interval, nevertheless it differs as a result of it doesn’t have customizable timeout settings like this tweak does.
To obtain the Timeout beta, add the next repo to your Cydia sources:
As soon as you put in Timeout, you’ll be able to depart it as is—the default timeout is 5 seconds—or you possibly can enterprise into the Settings app to set your personal timeout interval.
