Battery life and network signal strength received by the iPhone is definitely up there at the top of legitimate concerns that users have, and thankfully both can be addressed in some form. Signal Booster, a package for jailbroken iPhones, has just been updated to support modern hardware, meaning that there could be some level of improvement for those who are facing signal problems, regardless of version of iOS which the user is running.
Signal Booster has long been one of the simplest, but most effective offerings available for users with a jailbroken iPhone. Unfortunately, for all who have a phone, the art of troubleshooting connectivity issues can be thought of as black magic, mainly due to the fact that there are so many factors and elements involved in making a piece of hardware connect seamlessly to a cell tower. Signal Booster doesn’t try to go through a complicated diagnostic process or require the user to manipulate any device settings to function. Instead, a simple tap performs a full network reset on the device in an attempt to force the iPhone to reconnect to a new cell with a stronger link.
The recent update builds on an already strong list of supported devices and firmware by bringing full support for the recent iOS 7 jailbreak as well as offering compatibility with the 64-bit iPhone 5s. That means that Signal Booster offers compatibility all the way back to an iPhone 3GS running iOS 5.
The methods of interacting with the package hasn’t changed: simply launch the icon from the device’s home screen, watch it close itself and wait for the voice and data signal to improve.
Signal Booster is a commercial package available as a $0.99 download from the BigBoss repository. The currently available version of the package offers legacy support back to iOS 5 with hardware support dating back to the iPhone 3GS.
