iDiscrete JB is only available on jailbroken devices, and it contains certain “illegal” features that Apple would never allow in an official App Store app. Moving forward, we intend to maintain both versions of the app, and the list of additional features only available on iDiscrete JB will only grow, not shrink. If you want the FULL iDiscrete experience, as we originally envisioned it, we suggest iDiscrete JB.
Jailbreaking the iPhone is a constant cat-and-mouse game between developers and Apple. Each time Apple releases new firmware for the iPhone, the current exploit is closed, and all jailbreak apps are disallowed. Inevitably, developers find a new exploit, write a new jailbreak around it, and all is well with the world again. We will try to keep this page updated with a link to the latest jailbreak, but be warned, various jailbreaks differ in their level of complexity to implement, and it’s an area that will likely require your own research/troubleshooting. We provide no guarantee that the below link will work perfectly for you, and we cannot provide any troubleshooting on the jailbreak process itself. Proceed at your own risk.
That said, once completed, you will most likely find that having a jailbroken iPhone opens up a wild and wonderful world of apps/themes that our benevolent dictator, Steve Jobs (Praise Be Upon Him), has deemed unfit for our consumption. Once going down that harrowing, but fulfilling road, few look back. One reason never to look back is iDiscrete JB. At the moment it is only available via Rock, and can be found at the following link:
iDiscrete JB offers several features that the official version could not. Again, this is a list that is ever-growing, but currently consists of:
1) Ability to change the app icon and name that show on the Springboard. You can choose from hundreds of provided icons, or add your own via OpenSSH.
2) Ability to “hide” the app as an Apple app that you don’t use (ie Stocks, Contacts, Compass, etc.) This is quite honestly the way that we originally envisioned entry to the app. Say you have iDiscrete hidden as the Stocks app. Touching the icon will bring up a screenshot from the Stocks app, and rather than the Loading screen, THAT is where you input your Touch Sequence. After a few seconds, the app “crashes” back to the Springboard. An unauthorized user would simply think that your Stocks app froze, then crashed. Maximum discretion!
3) Instead of booting to the “dummy” text-entry interface after not receiving the correct Touch Sequence, you can set the app to just “crash” back to the Springboard. This was also the way we originally envisioned the app, but Apple apparently doesn’t like apps that initiate their own closure. HOWEVER, BE CAREFUL WHEN USING THIS FEATURE! Not having the text-entry interface means there is no way to input your Reset Code should you forget your Touch Sequence, and the only option is uninstalling and reinstalling the app. SO DON’T FORGET YOUR TOUCH SEQUENCE!
4) We are working on many more iDiscrete JB features. First on the list is the ability to send content via MMS from within the app, without having to export to your Camera Roll and do it from there. Apple will not allow third-party apps to send text messages, so voilà, another JB feature is born!
