Cydia iPhone 6

A week just ended, and a new one is starting, which gives us an opportunity to look at what was released on Cydia during the last few days. Once again, the trend gets clearer as less and less jailbreak tweaks are being released, something that we’ve been confirming every week for the past several weeks. This week we’ve go 11 tweaks for you to look at.

Aoraki: a multi-function tweak with floating buttons ($1.99)

BerryC8: a Lock screen launcher created with Touch ID in mind (free – review)

CrazyClock: speed up the Clock app icon animation on the Home screen (free – review)

GrabberApp8: change Camera grabber and add another grabber on Lock screen (free)

Faded: adds fade in and fade out when playing/pausing a song (free)

HideFavoritesTab: hides the Favorites tab from the Phone app (free)

KeyboardVibrate8: adds vibration when typing on the keyboard (free)

PhotoRes: adjust aspect ration and resolution for photography (free – review)

QR Mode: turns the stock Camera app into an awesome QR code reader ($1.99 – review)

Rendarya8: an image editor for the Photos app ($2.99)

StopPlayin8’+: disables specific iOS A/V players buttons (free)

I might have forgotten some tweaks in here, and if that’s the case, make sure to comment about it below.

    It’s sad that we’re not seeing as many jailbreak tweaks as before :/

    • Mohammed Sahib

      Probably because iOS has matured and adopted many of the most popular old tweaks.

      • Nah, more because the latest iOS isn’t jailbreakable.

    I accidentally updated my ipad to 8.1.3 ._.

    • Mark Boltz


    • you can go back to 8.1.2, no wait, they have stopped signing anything lower than 8.1.3 now,,, too late, i guess you’ll have wait for 8.1.3 jailbreak or even 8.1.4 to jb…

        Un-necessary lol

    • BassDownLow

      that’s why one of the first tweaks i install after a jailbreak is ” No PLS Recovery” it prevents OTA’s and accidental updates through iTunes. make sure next time you install this tweak. it’s on karen’s repo

      • Midyro

        Thanks for the advice 😉

    • SoylentGreen

      How do you manage a full update in error? I do some things that im not fully aware of when ive been woken up at night or etc, but how do you remain in that zone long eneough to restore a device?
      The best i can come up with is to envision myself blazing thc all day maybe a few valium (for stress relief of course) then having A brain fart style moment and decide to upgrade to an un-jb firmware, then comes the big ” awwwww ffs” moment, but even then i just cant see me doing that. Hope a jb drops for you asap bruv

    Seb why is this happening!? Will the jailbreka community fall and crumble. I love my tweaks I use Auxo, Bday spotify, Berry C8, Appsync, call enchancer, dynamics, and so many tweaks i I couldn’t live without.

    Let’s raise money and aire a jailbreak commercial. Anything to save the community.

    • mattsledge

      I think you’re over-reacting juuuuuuuuuuuust a little bit.

    • Bugs Bunnay

      The jailbreak community is done for. Wait for modmyi to attempt a resurrection.

  • Varun Soi

    When jailbreak for ios 8.1.3 comes out?:(

  • John Smith

    Typo: This week we’ve go 11 tweaks for you to look at.

    Go should be for I think

    • Pascal von Fintel

      it should be got, “this week we’ve *got* 11 tweaks for you to look at”


      “this week we’ve *for* 11 weeks for you to look at”

  • Spycer0

    I wonder if KeyboardVibrate8 is one of those tweaks that would drain your battery as hell…

    • As far as I can tell from my testing, it’s only enabled when your device is on mute. When it’s active, it must have a considerable impact on battery life (obviously), but that might be worth the “haptic” feedback.

  • Victor Molina

    I think I’m fine with 10 to 15 tweaks a week. 30 is just insane to keep up

  • A man

    Am I the only one who doesn’t find QR Mode in Cydia?

    • Spycer0

      find* and no you should see it though

    • James Johnson

      Open Cydia, select “Changes” then select “Refresh”. It should show up in your next search for it.

  • The jailbreaking community has 5 phases:

    1. New iOS released, no jailbreak available.
    2. Jailbreak is released for the latest iOS version.
    3. Apple patches the jailbreak; multiple incremental updates follow without any new jailbreaks in sight.

    4. An updated jailbreak tool makes the latest iOS jailbreakable again

    5. Apple patches the jailbreak again; jailbreak development comes to a halt.

      Could be worst because google doesn’t have cycles like that. They probably have like wait for carrier wait for this that this that. this year good this year finally next year no. next year apple.
