    Hello, I would like to know if there is a iPhone tweak that can hide ALL signs of my iPhone being jailbroken. As in the Cydia wont show up in the search bar. No jailbreaks in the settings tabs. Only be able to view in the SBSettins preferably.
    I ask this because my father doesn't want me to jailbreak my iPhone. Well. I did it because I'm tired of being being limited with apple. So i got my freedom. Now. Dose anyone know how to hide it?
    Please someone reply.

    If you are confused of what i'm saying. please say something so I can make the post better

    Thanks
    -Matt

    You CANT hide all of the evidence of a jailbreak. Once jailbreaking, there's no going back. Your warranty is broken with apple

    You can hide cydia with poof I believe. You can turn spotlight off so that cydia doesnt show up in the search bar (nothing will).

    How about password protecting your phone so he can't use it at all?

    I don't have a warranty so it's fine. Plus If I had a warranty I would just restore it if I needed a new one.

    That's what I'm doing right now. But with SBsettings dock.

    Well hopefully his dad doesn't realize spotlight is gone bc hiding it is a sign of jb

    Like x98car said though, hide Cydia and any jb apps you think might be conspicuous. Poof or in the more options in sbsettings will hide apps.

    Just curious, why doesn't he want you to jb it? Doesn't hurt and it's difficult to brick an iPhone nowadays.

    Hm yes, that can be a problem. I forgot about settings doing that. Not sure how to hide that. Maybe you can hide your settings app when he's around?

    He didn't want me to jailbreak it because I tend to mess with devices. But I know not to screw with it majorly. Especially because my last iPhone I screwed up tryin to buy 4.3 beta on... Haha. But I learned my lesson. And just want freedom with my idevice

    He has a iPhone as well. He's had one since the iPhone 3G now he has a 4. I have a 3GS he knows about them. And I RELLY hate haveing my 1st page unorganized I guess is OCD but its like stuff has to be in Serrtin places. Haha. But so far he dosnt know and it's been jailbroken for a week now. When I had my iPod touch it was jailbroken for like 3 months didnt know. I guess i can do what ive been doing untill I can hide it.

    Lol makes sense. I never had an iPod touch and iPhone until I was 19 and afforded it on my own. But I can understand if your dad is concerned about what you do with your expensive iDevice.

    But glad you learned your lesson. Jailbreak and unlock fine, just don't mess with betas and the iPad baseband.

    So would hiding settings be a good solution or should we search deeper? I have a ton of apps from Cydia that show up in settings, so I wouldn't possibly tell you you should remove those apps bc I know we all want those jb apps

    All I know how to do is hide the icon in settings which is to disable the icon image, but I can't say I know how to take it off. It would still say "winterboard" but the tab would still be there :/ probably also not a good idea to mess with system files tho lol.

    Don't get me wrong I know where my dad is coming from. He's worried I'll break it. But lessons are learned by mistakes. Heck im supprized he's not checking my iPhone a lot. Lol

    I'm sure you were terrified. Sounds like you're slightly traumatized from messing up your first device!

    Hide Cydia using SBSettings and in Mobile Substrate Addons under SBSettings turn off Preference Loader. Then just disable application viewing under Spotlight and then you can't really tell Cydia is on unless you look further.
