System Info is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to display more bits of information on your iPhone or iPad right on the About page. ARX8x has developed a free tweak on your jailbroken iOS device in hopes to crash down the limitations of your smartphone or tablet.

System Info provides you more than 20 information tips about your phone on one page. This makes it easier for you to find out the necessary detail of your device without scrambling where to find them.

However, this tweak might not be for suitable for everyone, especially the ones who consider it superfluous. On the one hand, hardcore iOS and jailbreak fans can take advantage of the usefulness and readiness of this tweak.

When do you particularly need it? First, when the developer requires you to provide your device's UDID to activate a jailbreak tweak license. Second, when you need your IMEI number for carrier-related activities. And the list goes on.

In case you are wondering which information you can add to your phone's About page, pretty much, actually. Below is a laundry list of details that you can choose to include on your About page:

  • Public IP
  • Root partition capacity
  • Rear camera serial number
  • Front camera serial number
  • Gyroscope model
  • Accelerometer model
  • Compass model
  • Pressure sensor model
  • ECID in hexadecimal
  • Unique device identifier (UDID)
  • Hardware platform/BoardConfig
  • Regulatory model number/A-number
  • Battery capacity left
  • Battery serial number
  • Battery charge cycle count
  • Charger current (drawing)
  • Charger specs (volts, amps, watts)
  • Current uptime
  • CPU
  • Application processor name
  • Kernel version
  • iBoot version
  • Wi-Fi firmware version
  • Baseband chipset

If you ever decide to install this jailbreak tweak on your device, you can directly download it from Cydia's BigBoss repository. It works on all iOS 10 devices. Take note, you need to forcibly close the Settings app from the App Switcher and reboot your device after the installation.
