A little side note:
Did you guys know the Pangu team shows off their first iOS 10 Jailbreak today? At the event called Mobile Security Conference (MOSEC), the team provided a screenshot of a working jailbreak for iOS 10 beta.
No ETA is available at this moment.
And now we’re back on track to talk about iTransmission 5. This is a newer version of the previous package that we discussed on this blog. It’s now available as a jailbreak tweak instead of side-loaded apps that you can download on both jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices.
iTransmission 5 comes with some new features and enhancements that many people have been requesting. While using the previous version which is the iTransmission 4, I noticed that my battery was running out quickly.
Luckily, in this newer version of iTransmission, the developer was able to lower the memory usage of the application.
How to Install iTransmission 5 on Jailbroken iOS
Step 1: As mentioned, your iPhone or iPad must be jailbroken. Go to Cydia and reload sources
Step 2: Visit the BigBoss repo or the search feature and look for iTransmission 5
Step 3: Install > Confirm > and Respring
For those of you who don’t know or never heard of iTransmission. It’s a torrent client for iOS device that allows you to download torrent files of onto your iPhone and iPad. The app is relatively easy to use, the options are easy to configure, and a clean interface that lets you browse around without any hesitation.
- Background downloading
- Built In Web Browser
- Push Notification
- Low Memory Usage
- Opens links from safari
After you’ve successfully installed it, the tweak should be seated somewhere on your home screen. Tap on the app’s icon to open iTransmission. In it, there are a built-in browser and a Settings page where you can adjust the app based on your liking.
One of the many features that I’m really into is called Insomnia. When this option is enabled, iTransmission will never disconnect from the Wi-Fi, thus avoiding file interruption. It does consume more power so be sure to use a charger for your iPhone.
That’s enough. This tweak is now out there on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free.
