Excellent news jailbreak fans; just a day after the release of the untethered jailbreak for all iOS 9 compatible devices, we’re starting to see developers update their jailbreak tweaks to offer compatibility with the latest version of Apple’s mobile OS. One of the first relatively high profile tweaks to see this update is the Speed Intensifier package that was updated for iOS 8 back in January of this year. If you’ve got no time for animations and really want the whole iOS experience to be a little faster, then Speed Intensifier is probably something you’re going to want to look at.
Apple puts a lot of emphasis and focus on the transitions between various states within iOS. It’s essentially part of the user-experience to have subtle but visually appealing animations when performing certain tasks. You may have never taken the time to actually analyze and think about it, but these animations can be found pretty much whenever you do anything within the OS. Opening an app is animated, transitioning between screens generally animates the new view, even Apple’s new Peek and Pop system on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is heavily animation based.
Speed Intensifier essentially allows those animations to be sped up to make everything a lot nippier and faster throughout the whole iOS environment. The developer behind this particularly tweak has shown willingness over the years to continually support the latest version of iOS when a new jailbreak becomes available, and it seems that the availability of an iOS 9 jailbreak isn’t going to break that commitment as it becomes one of the first packages to offer iOS 9 compatibility after remaining broken for a day. With that said, it still does come with a few caveats.
Basic support for iOS 9 has been added, meaning that the package can be used to speed up animations and make everything feel a lot faster. When putting the tweak into Simple mode, users will be required to respring the iOS device in order for it to function and take advantage of the benefits. The developer has also stated that there are currently issues with crashing when using Fusion and Advanced modes. However, he has stated that he will be continuing to work on the package to bring full stability and compatibility for iOS 9.
The updated version of Speed Intensifier can be found in Philip Wong’s own private repository at https://pw5a29.github.io/, which will need to be added as a source to Cydia to access.
