DisplayOut For iPad By Ryan Petrich Allows To Mirror Your Screen On TV [Cydia Tweak]

The iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter is great, if you want to watch videos or slideshows on a external monitor or TV. Well, one iPhone/iPad developer, Ryan Petrich, didn’t think that was enough, so he figured out a way to have everything on your iPad screen be display on an external display or TV.

This tweak is called “Display Out”. It is only for jailbroken iPads, and is now available in Cydia. There is no SpringBoard icon, as this just shows up in the Settings app. You can adjust your output resolution, orientation, refresh rate, and the scale.

It also comes with an SBSettings toggle, for easy access to enable or disable.

Here’s a quick video of Display Out in action:

Display Out is available in Cydia now. Let us know in the comments below if you’re going to download DisplayOut and how it works for you!

  2. I like your Screen support on background? tell me, what kind adaptor you have to see on the monitor? (15pin iphone to USB or Composite?) I can’t see it.

    I am new to this and am concerned about jailbreaking my ipad. We have an ipad for our school and would really like to be able to display the apps on our smartboards. I can do this with the VGA adapter but of course, it only shows the movies and videos. I am reading about ijailbreak and that in order for Display Out to work, you must jailbreak your ipad. I do not understand this and am concerned that there are risks to our school iPad. Can you tell me more about this process and whether it is risk free? Where to find it and how to do it if there are no risks?

  5. Does this work o iPhone?

    Hi, it´s works with vga adapter of apple.


  7. Jose Cabezas says:

    And yes, works on iphone too.

  8. Jail breaking isnt for the faint of heart.  You can nuke a device for sure if you don’t listen and follow your directions.  Videos can help you discover more about the process, google pwns as always.  I always recommend jailbreaking both the iphone and ipad, there is a method for resetting the devices and putting them into a root acess mode, when you connect them to itunes 19 of 20 times you can undo even the craziest stuff you do to your device.  Plus its a school device so apple will take it back regardless of what you do to it (they love schools), just don’t mention anything : )))    

    Always remember it is NOT illegal, congress made jailbreaking and rooting specifically legal in recent years.  Apple will claim in voids the warranty but honestly you can reset the device in itunes and the warranty magically comes back so reallly…..  go for it

  9. I have paid for this app, but what will happen if I restore my iPad and want to install it again? the license?
