A new tweak called Control Unlocker has been released in Cydia that allows users to replace the slide to unlock button from their iPhone’s lockscreen with a nostalgic game controller. The tweak adds a classic Nintendo-like game controller on the lockscreen complete with its four buttons for direction as well as ‘A’ and ‘B’ buttons.

The Control Unlocker tweak can be configured from and users can set the sequence of their choice. Once configured the tweak only allows access to the iPhone or any other iOS device if the combination is entered correctly.


With Control Unlocker tweak jailbreakers can also set a custom text that would appear on the controller at the lockscreen. This can be a reminder or just a fun phrase.

This tweak not only adds a fun way to unlock iOS devices but it also adds better security that is as good as iPhone’s own Passcode feature. But remember the tweak will become dysfunctional once your iOS device falls into the safe mode.

Control Unlocker tweak for jailbroken iOS devices is available in Cydia for free under the Bigboss repository.
