Cydia Expert mode iPhone 6

In what seems to be the most uneventful week we’ve had in a long time, we saw the release of only a handful of tweaks, and nothing to really call home about.

Columba was the talk of the town, but those who tried it quickly came to the conclusion it doesn’t hold a candle to biteSMS, a tweak it claims to be a replacement for.

Browsing through the new jailbreak apps and tweaks of this week won’t take you long…

Avix: a tweak that supercharges the App Switcher ($0.99)

Beacon 2: safely change the Apple logo color and background during respring ($1.03)

Blocked: enhances the security and privacy of your device ($2.99)

Columba: a quick compose and quick reply tweak for Messages ($2.99 – review)

kextutil: a tool for viewing and managing kexts (free)

kik8: enhancements for the Kik app (free)

      Respring’s little brother.

      • Bugs Bunnay

        Ahh that’d make sense, but looks like author changed it to big brother.

  • Adrian Luevanos

    The lack of tweaks recently made me update my device. I can still get everything on lastest OS. I wasn’t going to get Apple Watch due to updating. Now I will tommorow. Don’t get me wrong I am not one of those people who think jailbreaking is dead. I belvie that untill we get a new jailbreak though and more tweaks being produced, the latest update to bring Apple Music will be worth it.

      Lack of tweaks? LOL poor you.

    Anybody tried Beacon 2 without a bootloop? Im scared of losing my jailbreak!

    • Jake Barbour

      I’ve tried it, its not a bootloop but you get stuck on the lockscreen with the boot logo on it and the status bar visible at the top, you can fix this by putting your device in safe mode and deleting the tweak, as I take it Beacon 2 doesn’t work yet and shouldn’t have been released until finished.

    Bookmarking this until I (hopefully) get my jailbreak back next week. The watch was worth it but the jailbreak will be the icing on the cake.

    Does anyone know of a good external display for a MacBook Pro other than the Apple’s Thunderbolt Display??

    • Chris

      Any HDPi screen should work fine given you have a thunderbolt cable that uses either DVI or HDMI.

    I remember installing this on my i5. Worked flawlessly. Not so for ios8 I guess?
