If the tweak doesn't seem to work at all, please try using the "Restore Default Settings" button.

If you are still experiencing issues, have you used the emergency wake feature? This feature disables SafeShutdown until the device is plugged in and charged to the set "Restart Percentage". Please try plugging the device in and charging to the set percentage.

Here is a breakdown of what each settings option means:

  • Tweak Enabled - Enable or disable SafeShutdown entirely.
  • SafeShutdown Now - Put the device into the SafeShutdown manually. This can be used as a replacement to turning the device off, or to charge faster. If the device is charging when this feature is used, the device will not wake until disconnected and reconnected to power.
  • Shutdown Percentage - Set the battery percentage you would like the device to enter the SafeShutdown state.
  • Restart Percentage - Set the battery percentage you would like the device to wake up at when charging. You can set this to 0 to have the device wake up straight away.
  • Power Menu - This enables the custom power down menu. If enabled without emergency wake enabled, the SafeShutdown option will not appear.
  • Warning Notification - Show a warning notification at a set percentage above the Shutdown Percentage.
  • Low Power Mode When Warned - Enable low power mode when this notification is shown.
  • Warning Percentage - Set the battery percentage above the Shutdown Percentage you would like the warning notification to show. e.g. If you have the Shutdown Percentage set to 10% and the Warning Percentage set to 5%, the warning will show at 15% battery.
  • Countdown Notification - Show a notification at a set number of seconds before the device enters the SafeShutdown state.
  • Countdown Seconds - Set the number of seconds before SafeShutdown that you would like to show the countdown notification.
  • Emergency Wake Up - Allows the device to be awoken from the SafeShutdown state by pressing the volume down button 3 times fast. If this is disabled the only way to wake the device is by plugging it in and charging to the set Restart Percentage, or performing a hard reset.
  • Hold Lock Instead - Emergency wake by holding the lock button for 2.5 seconds instead of triple pressing volume down.
  • Disable Low Power Mode After Automatic Wake - Turns low power mode off when the device is restarted by plugging it into a charger and charging to the set restart percentage.
  • Disable Low Power Mode After Emergency Wake - Turns low power mode off when the emergency wake feature is used to wake the device.
  • Allow Alarms and Timers - Allows alarms and timers to sound while the device is in the SafeShutdown state. The device will not wake up for these and there is no option to snooze alarms. To stop the alarm or timer press either of the volume up or volume down buttons. (This will respring but not wake up the device.
  • Adjust Percentage - Have the device display an adjusted battery percentage instead of the original percentage. This makes SafeShutdown appear to enable at 0% battery. If emergency wake has been used at a percentage lower than or equal to the enable percentage, the original percentage will be shown.
  • Wake Animation - iOS 11+ only. This option will enable the custom respring animation which shows while the device is waking from SafeShutdown.
  • Low Power Notifications - Show the default iOS low battery alerts as notifications instead of the annoying alerts.
  • Restore Default Settings - Reset all SafeShutdown settings to the default settings. This can sometimes fix bugs caused by corrupted settings.
