I’ve seen a surprising number of people mention in forums and elsewhere recently that their iPhone Power/Sleep buttons are broken. Always sorry to hear that – but here’s a bit of very good news for all those muddling by with busted buttons …
Today’s release of two single-purpose utilities from Hackintosh forum member XianLi – Shutdown.app and Lock.app – should prove a *big* help for anyone getting by with a crippled Power/Sleep button.
The two utilities let you turn off the iPhone or place it into sleep mode without needing to use the hardware button – and they work as advertised.
Shutdown and Lock are available now on Installer via the iClarified repository, which is: http://installer.iclarified.com/
