Cydia Expert mode iPhone 6

Looking at the amount of new tweaks released this past week, it seems that there definitely is a slowdown happening. For reference, the last couple weeks had seen 30+ releases, some of them being massive tweaks too.

The last few days have indeed been more quiet, and the Jailbreak Tweaks section on iDB is a testimony of that. But let’s not get discouraged. Maybe it was just one of those slow weeks, and things will pick up again in the next few days. In the meantime, have a look at these 23 tweaks and let us know which ones have peeked your interest.

  • Chris Gilmore

    I could really use a “The Perfect Jailbroken iPhone” video. Jeff? I’d just like to see what people ACTUALLY use for their complete day-to-day device.

    • Merman123

      Whatever Jeff releases, I doubt that’s would he would have on his day to day device. We would have seen that video long ago. Rather, I think he’s exploring various tweak combinations to achieve what he believes would be “the perfect jailbroken device.”

  • Kadhir Anand

    Call Enhancer is not free..

    • Erwinn

      Check insanelyi repo 😉

      • Simplicity. Homescreen Designer; iwidgets, sevenclock, search widget 4

  • Sin

    Call enhancer wasn’t free when I checked a few hours ago.

  • Justice and Malice

    Been a slow period of time for JB tweaks lately.

  • Wolfer

    I love noappstoreredirect!!!

  • Blip dude

    Still waiting for Asphaleia!!

    • Andrieux Querido

      Yeah, its being a pain to wait

  • john diaz

    Is it me or are developers running out of “good” ideas.

    • gittlopctbi

      I agree. Snores-ville.

  • Erwinn

    Can’t wait for Velox II 😀

  • Sean

    Couldn’t get WidgetWeather2 working.. anyone else try it?

  • still get a few mysterious crashes even with crashreporter installed, any ideas?

  • diggitydang

    Anyone have the issue of Control Center not staying open? I swipe up and it will come up and disappear periodically. I have to put the phone to sleep and then reopen again for it to work again. I haven’t heard of this problem before so I’m not sure if it’s just me… If knows a fix for it, I’d really appreciate it? It’s driving me crazy. Thanks in advance! BTW, I’m on a 6+, 128GB silver…

    • gittlopctbi

      I’m not having that problem, but my problem is that for some reason, I cannot get Control Center to pull up at all. Nothing. Particularly after I’ve used iMessage. And particularly when I’m using iMessage. Can’t even get the nub to appear. I have to turn the phone off (sleep) and back on again. I wonder if our problems are related.

      iPhone 5, iOS 8.1

      • Carlos Medina

        You have activator installed?

      • gittlopctbi

        Yes.

      • Carlos Medina

        Do you have any gesture based actions like slide statusbar any direction etc?

      • gittlopctbi

        Yes: slide status bar (two of them plus a tap and hold), slide up and down left side of screen, slide down right side of screen.

      • Carlos Medina

        If I may suggest try uninstalling activator, respring, and go maybe a day or so without activator. How many time will it make the CC inactive thought your day? Frequently?

      • gittlopctbi

        Hmnnn…maybe two or three times a day. It seems to particularly happen when I use iMessage. I’ll try uninstalling Activator like you suggest and see what happens.

      • Carlos Medina

        yea try uninstalling activator or to make it easier deleting the the gestures for a few days to see if any changes have occurred.

      • diggitydang

        Glad it’s not just me having issues with CC though. It sounds like similar issues. From the other responses, this is an Activator thing, which is a shame… It’s happening for me a few times a day and it’s getting annoying to keep sleeping and waking my device.

    • Aaron

      I think it’s something to do with activator… I have a slide-in-from-bottom activator gesture that makes HandyKey change keyboards & it occasionally makes CC break until I lock&unlock my phone

      • diggitydang

        I hope Activator gets updated given all the tweaks that rely on it as I’m considering removing it altogether… This has been the buggiest Activator ever (for me anyway).

  • Ishaan Malhotra

    Is auxo 3 still troublesome even after the update for anyone?

  • Rahimo

    I’m gonna try the WidgetWeather2 on my iPad, I’ll let you know my opinion about it!!
    Also Search Widget !!

  • Hypetracx

    Where is bitesms for ios8???

    • Zachary Sloane

      gone. abandoned.

  • Alberto Espinal

    Bigify+ for iOS 8, is an old tweak but now you can put the size of the icons on the fly right from the home screen by pinching the home screen

  • Luis Martinez

    I didn’t want to have to resort to this but… Ryan Petrich, I will in fact blow you if that is what it takes to get Auki updated. That is all.

  • iPhoneWINS

    we need back grounder please…

  • sadaN

    It really sucks that swipeselection isn’t working on Safari, similiar 3rd party keyboards such as BrightKey do, however they are both sluggish nor allow text selection, only cursor repositioning.

  • Anchor; a replacement for Gridlock was also released, and it worked for me on the first 2 pages; except for the fact that my remaining 8 pages of icons were blank. Anyone else have this issue?
