One of the signature options of the brand new iPhone 15 Pro & Pro Max is that Apple has changed the standard ringer/silent change with a customizable Action Button that works equally to the one discovered on the Apple Watch Ultra, albeit with out the screaming orange aesthetic.
(*15*) for older iPhones that lack this Action Button, Apple hasn’t made it potential to replicate related toggle button functionality for the ringer/silent change, as a substitute opting to hold it as a devoted ringer/silent change. That’s the place iOS developer pookjw’s new ActionButtonEnabler jailbreak tweak comes into play.
ActionButtonEnabler doesn’t fairly change the functionality of the ringer/silent change as many jailbreakers would hope it did, however slightly, it adjustments the operate of the Home Button on older jailbreakable iPads working iPadOS 17 to mimic the Action Button on iPhone 15 Pro fashions. Currently, this implies solely a small subset of Home Button-equipped iPad fashions inclined to the checkm8 exploit by the use of the palera1n jailbreak.

With it, customers can customise the Home Button to carry out certainly one of a number of helpful toggle options other than simply ringer/silent.

In the meantime, these gadget customers can use add-ons equivalent to Activator as a substitute.
Those keen on giving the brand new ActionButtonEnabler tweak a attempt can purchase the .deb for it from the developer’s GitHub page. It can then be put in with any package deal supervisor or file supervisor app. Only jailbroken iPadOS 17 devices are supposed at the moment — and extra particularly, these that may be jailbroken through palera1n.
