Fake SBSettings Jailbreak App for iOS is a Scam

Apple has yet to allow applications that directly modify iOS into the App Store, so those people who are in search of ways to personalize their devices resort to Cydia - the number one marketplace for the numerous amount of tweaks and handy additions that innovative developers are constantly churning out.
