Jailbreak Tweak Said to Fix iOS 5 Battery Woes Update

Five dollar app claims to address a problem that has been plaguing users for months

Apple never got around to fixing the battery drainage problem on iPhone 4S handsets, but a new jailbreak tweak might do the trick.

According to this CydiaHelp post, a new tweak released in Cydia called ‘iOS 5 Battery Fix’ should help alleviate the battery drain caused by iOS 5 and / or iOS 5.0.1.

It’s hard to believe it simply kills off the bugs that cause the problem, but then again, it’s worth the shot. That is, if you’re ready to shell out five bucks for VIP membership on the Insanelyi forum / repository.

For those who aren’t too fond of jailbreaks, there’s a good chance Apple will release iOS 5.0.2 soon. It’s been hinted at by several renowned hackers in the iOS ecosystem, so those of you who don’t want to tamper with their device can play the waiting game.

Update: It appears that this jailbreak tweak may be a scam. Learn more here.
