PowerSelector tweak for iOS: ldrestart, Respring, UIcache

PowerSelector

Operate iOS power with the PowerSelector tweak on any jailbroken iPhone or iPad. When you need a tool to execute respring, ldrestart, safe mode, uicache and other commands from Control Center, PowerSelector is the right app for that. Supports iOS 11 – iOS 16. What's more, the most recent version was updated to support rootless jailbreaks.

Add PowerSelector Repo to your package manager.

What is PowerSelector?

PowerSelector is more than just a ldrestart tweak. It also offers a range of useful functions such as power off, reboot, safe mode, respring, uicache, and UserSpace Reboot. The tweak also comes with an optional widget that can be installed for easy access from the Control Center.

ichitaso's tweak offers seamless access to its diverse range of functions through its app icon on the Home Screen or through the dedicated module in the Control Center. This tweak is highly regarded among users of iOS 14, but it is also compatible with a wide range of iOS versions, including iOS 11 to iOS 16. The latest release of tweak works with Palera1n on iOS 15 and iOS 16.

Once installed, the PowerSelector tweak adds a dedicated preference panel to the Settings app. The options include the ability to toggle control center settings, set power slider settings, sbreload, and activate the “Use Apps” feature. With these options at your fingertips, you'll be able to qualify access useful power functions for jailbreak of your device.

Furthermore, the PowerSelector Control Center module offers a wealth of information beyond what's typically displayed in the Control Center. With the PowerSelector module, you'll be able to view details such as your Wi-Fi IP, global IP, uptime, and RAM information (including both the amount of free RAM and the total installed RAM). Additionally, you have complete control over which functions will be accessible through the module, so you can tailor it to your preferences.

LDRestart option is a convenient alternative to a full traditional reboot. Unlike a typical reboot, it maintains the integrity of the kernel space. This option comes in handy when you encounter issues with jailbreak tweaks and don't want to lose your jailbreak during a restart. It's one of the most practical functions useful in situations where a respring is not enough to resolve the issue.

As an alternative, you can utilize the UserSpace Reboot. Similar to the LDRestart option, this reboot method also preserves the kernel_task, ensuring that your device remains jailbroken. However, it's important to note that after performing a UserSpace Reboot. This makes the UserSpace Reboot a useful tool for troubleshooting jailbreak-related issues, but it may require some additional steps to re-enable libhooker and OpenSSH.

To respring the device, tap and hold the Control Center module icon. PowerSelector tweak can also be used to enable and disable vnodebypass. This is a jailbreak detection bypass tool designed to hide jailbreak files and hooks to hide installed jailbreak from apps.

All features provided by the PowerSelector ldrestart tweak are very useful for jailbroken environment. If you have issues with opening sideloaded apps, or tweaks doesn't work as expected, use the ldrestart feature to soft restart your device. This is a must-have tool for jailbroken devices. Version 1.3.7 is the latest release of PowerSelector.

PowerSelector tweak works on checkra1n, unc0ver, and odysseyra1n jailbreaks. It may not work properly, depending on the device status. Support for iOS 14 was added in the latest release. The latest release fixes issues with Substitute tweak injection libraries.

Note: XinaA15 Jailbreak on iOS 15 – iOS 15.1.1 is now also supported. However, the app's Power Off does not work when in Safe Mode, and Userspace reboot will restart the iDevice.

Alternatively you can download CCPower tweak. With this tweak, you can easily perform various actions such as turning off your device, rebooting, respringing SpringBoard, entering safe mode, refreshing the icon cache, restarting the device, and rebooting UserSpace.
