While Apple is slowly trying to solve the problems of battery life that comes with your iPhone (4S problem in many cases) and some devices with iOS 5, it seemed that the jailbreak community, with the release of a few tweaks, it was successful to solve the problem. But in reality it is not.
A few days ago, on Cydia, has released a tool that promised to definitely solve the battery problems for the small price of $ 4.99. Further analysis of the software, this tweak does absolutely nothing: therefore seems to be a scam to tap money to anyone who is pinning its hopes on a tool like that.
While many users have claimed to have solved the problem in a wonderful way with this tool, it seems that this is only due to the classic “placebo effect”. Two hackers of iOS, Dustin Howett and Sam Binger, suspicious from the release of this tool called “iOS 5 Battery Fix”, have a look at his code and found that, indeed, this tool does nothing.
Binger has in fact revealed:
There has been a lot of hype recently about a 4S ‘Battery Fix’ – DHowett found that all it does is replace /System/Library/CoreServes/powerd.bundle/com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist
I looked for any possible impact of this
While this sounds good… we’re changing the power settings right? The reality is that it does absolutely nothing.
