Jailbreaking the 80/20 rule


Apple’s iOS is great but not perfect. This is partly because Apple lives by the 80/20 rule. This usually means prioritizing simplicity and elegance above all.

I was curious to see if I could get iOS even closer to perfect (for me) by tweaking the other 20%. I Jailbroke my iPhone 5 to test the idea.

Jailbreaking often conjures up images of stealing software and illegal hacking. Really it’s just a way to tweak iOS to your liking. It can be abused just like anything else.

So far I’m happy with the changes. Here are a few things I was able to do.

Minimize Annoyances

Improve The UI

Smart Shortcuts
