Installing SleepFX without crashing | iDevice

I stumbled upon one great app from BigBoss and it is called SleepFX written by Malcolm Hall!  You can generally get it from Cydia from BigBoss source.  Although so, some of you might be getting it from other sources and for free instead of paying.  Well that is totally up to you where you get it.

      First and foremost, it depends on what iOS version you are using. This tutorial when written works for iOS 4.3.1, which is currently above 5.0.1. The method, nonetheless, is similar. If you have trouble with the tweak, you can always remove them from the settings.
