    Introducing ChangeAwake, a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Ron Thakrar that will help alert you of music switches in a beautifully subtle way.

    ChangeAwake is subtle because when your music changes to another song, it doesn't make a loud and obnoxious noise, and it doesn't make your phone vibrate all over the place. All it will do is wake your device up when a song changes, which shows you the Lock Screen with the album artwork and all of the song information.

    ChangeAwake adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a few options to your liking:



    Here, you will be able to configure:


    • A delay time for the device to awake after a new song starts playing
    • A fade in time for the device to awake after a new song starts playing
    • Whether or not you want the device to awake when it's using battery power
    • Whether or not you want the device to awake when it's connected to an external power source
    • Enable or disable awake on an Activator action
    • Enable or disable awake when paused
    • Enable or disable awake on speaker only (not headphones)
    • Configure a fade out delay for the wake up when going back to sleep
    • Configure a blacklist for the tweak


    The optimal workspace for this tweak is on a desktop with some kind of docking station, so that while you're listening to music from your iPhone, you can see it awake in front of your face when the music changes. If you're keeping your phone in your pocket, then this tweak won't serve much of a purpose to you. It works best for those that actually leave their devices on tables or docking stations, or someplace where seeing the Lock Screen when the device wakes up is possible.

    If you want to give ChangeAwake a try, it's available right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.49. iOS 7 is required for the installation.
