Yeah, the passcode bug is quite common and spontaneous reboots occur occasionally on iOS, but I think the reason he mentioned it was to point out how important placement of Assistive Touch is when going through the process of disabling animations. He just happened to notice it while redoing it after the reboot. You said that you couldn't get them disabled and this could be why. Have you tried it again?
No. Not yet. I understand his main point.

Read a comment at the article and apparently Hey Siri now works without plugging in. I tried it and it is true for me.

Yeah, they added that feature last fall.

Well, I just updated my 6s to 9.3.2 and I can't get this handy trick to work anymore. Has anyone else updated and got it to work? I'm kinda bummed Apple seems to have fixed this bug. :(

Gone the way of nested folders. Actually, I can nest folders, but they dissolve with a reboot.

I'm still jailbroken on 9.0.2. I just can't deal with animations and would prefer to not have to jump through hoops every time I reboot. Forced animations (including the Reduce Motion fade) make me want to punch Apple in their big, stupid face.

Thanks for that bit of info. I can stop trying to the activate that bug now. I kept thinking, maybe if I try it 20 more times it will finally work. :D
Do you think you'll downgrade for it?
