Shortcut 01: Encode Audio This converts a sound file (in my case I was using an MP3) to Base64, for later use by the next shortcut:
Shortcut 02: Charger Connected Sound that will be played when the charger is connected. The base64-encoded text should already be in the clipboard from the step above. You just have to paste that into the Text field:
Shortcut 03: Charger Disconnected (Optional) Can use the same sound for connect & disconnect if you want. I just wanted to have different sounds used. It’s the same setup as above, just using a different Base64 string. If you want the same sound for both actions, you can skip this.
Automation Setup a new Personal Automation for when your device is connected or disconnected from power, or both, & run the appropriate shortcut for what you’re trying to do.
Security Vulnerabilities: I’ve seen jailbreak developers release patches for devices with Cydia before Apple puts them out
Instability: Okay, sure. But if an occasional crash is the cost of having things like themes & hooks into Springboard, it’s a price I’m willing to pay. Especially because iOS isn’t that much more stable without being jailbroken.
Shortened Battery Life: This coming from the company that was secretly throttling older device “to save battery life”. Sorry if I don’t believe this one.
I have not yet read the rest of the page, but I’m sure it will be much of the same above. I’m not interested in Jailbreaking to download free apps; it’s for the ability to customize the device i own & want to do with as i please.
