Jailbreak for iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th gen. has just been released and tweaks have already started to pour into Cydia for these two new Apple iOS devices. Screen Extender tweak and FullForce for Phone tweak when installed force iOS applications that haven’t been updated to support the 4-inch display yet to show in full screen mode and take advantage of the extra real estate available.

These tweaks are ideal for those who have to use applications that didn’t receive an update in a while and don’t feature native support for iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5 generation’s 4-inch Retina Display.

ScreenExtender tweak, which is available for free in Cydia supports every application and provides a settings menu within the settings.app for the iOS device. Users can add and remove support for Screen Extender tweak from apps of their choice and configure it as they want. Users can also disable apps that are not supportive with the tweak and crash from the settings menu. According to the tweak’s description page users will need to respring their iOS device after configuring the tweak so changes could take effect. It supports iOS 6.x versions including iOS 6.1.

On the other hand FullForce for Phone tweak has been released in Cydia for jailbroken iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th generation. The tweak is developed by Ryan Petrich and is compatible with iOS 6.1. What it does is pretty interesting and similar to Screen Extender. FullForce for Phone tweak forces iOS applications to take advantage of iPhone 5′s full 4-inch display by stretching them. The purpose of the FullForce for Phone tweak is to force those applications, which haven’t been updated to fit into iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th generation’s larger screen to fill the black gaps and take advantage of the whole display.

Both Screen Extender and FullForce for Phone tweaks are available in Cydia. Screen Extender is available for free while FullForce for Phone is paid ($0.99).
