Apart from their widely-loved user interface, these devices are preferred by technology enthusiasts and common man for the wide range of apps and services it offers. Apple iPhone is one of the devices I personally own, and it is also one of those devices without which my daily activities will remain incomplete. If you own an iDevices, you get exposed to thousands of brilliant applications, from the App Store, or from the jailbreak community.



Well, this post is actually for the jailbroken ones, since we are going to manipulate the software, to produce desirable changes in the normal functioning of the device. Rest assured, you don’t need to do the complex stuff. All that will be taken care of, by the native jailbreak app- Cydia itself. If you are frequent iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch user, you would be aware of the fact that your device is capable of capturing screenshots with simple hit of Home+Power button together.

This is made possible with the help of simple, and easy to use tweak from Cydia, named FlashCustomize.
