Snapchat+ Spoof speed

A new jailbreak tweak for Snapchat just launched, and it works on the latest version of Snapchat—version 9.12.0.0—without causing a lockout.

As you’ll recall, Snapchat started cracking down on Snapchat-oriented jailbreak tweaks after an update to one of the more popular tweaks (Phantom) allowed users to spoof locations and snag coveted filters from places across the world.

Though an update to Phantom is said to be on the way, a new update to another Snapchat-centric tweak—Snapchat+— is the first release that actually lets users bypass the Snapchat ban hammer.

Snapchat +

To find Snapchat+, add the following repo to your list of Cydia sources:

http://beta.unlimapps.com/

Once the repo is added, search for Snapchat+ version 1.2r-9. This is the version that allows users to avoid being locked out with the latest version of Snapchat, and still benefit from the tweaks it provides.

Snapchat+ Settings

Snapchat+ will allow you to do many things that Snapchat normally doesn’t allow you to do. These things include:

  • Auto saving snaps
  • Disable snap countdown
  • Disable view receipt
  • Spoof Snapchat settings
  • Save chat messages
  • Disable screenshot log
  • Disable shutter sound

There are, of course, other features to be found in Snapchat+, check out the page on Cydia for more information.

Obviously, with Phantom being the most popular Snapchat-centric tweak, many will be waiting until it receives its update. But in the meantime, this not only proves that bypassing the lockout is doable, but Snapchat+ may very well provide all of the features that you need.

With all of that said, as we’ve stated before, you are taking a risk by continuing to use tweaks that Snapchat is apparently strongly against. Don’t blame us if you account ends up permanently banned; you’ve been warned!

What do you think about this whole situation? Do you think the cat and mouse game between Snapchat and jailbreakers will be a perpetual one?

Update: It appears that Snapchat has outright disabled its auto-ban for users of Snapchat-centric tweaks. This means that this tweak, and other tweaks (such as Phantom) should now work.

Whether or not this is a long term or short term thing remains to be seen. Until Snapchat comments on this, keep in mind that you’re still taking a risk.

  • Phantom is the only Snapchat tweak that I’ve ever used. But then again, it might be good to do some exploring, so I’ll give this a try. Thanks Jeff, for keeping us informed!

    JB community 1, Snapchat 0.

    • Snapchat devs will also lose..

      • Of course they’ll always lose and then they’ll win and then they’ll lose again and so on and so forth. Perhaps they realised how pointless a game of cat and mouse it’d be to block jailbreak tweaks.

    Yes :*

  • See my update. Snapchat has removed its auto-ban, meaning tweaks like Phantom now work. But that could change any moment, so proceed with care.

      Hey Jeff, having some issues! I jailbroke my phone using the the taig jailbreak that was released a week or so ago. Everything was good. For other reasons. I had to restore and undo my jailbreak. Then today, I decided to rejealibreak. I used the same taig version, forgetting taig had sense been updated. My Cydia app wouldn’t load anything. Then I re jailbroke again using the latest taig software and still no packages load. I get the “cannot load package” error. How do I fix this??

    Maybe they are trying to see which users use these tweaks and then perm ban them all in one go, just a thought…

    Awesome and I just deleted Snapchat+ too

    Do not underestimate Sentry!

  • I’ve always prefered AppPlus for snap (formally Snapchat++) over anything else.

  • Tal Biterman

    Can I allow all my apps to automatically update except for Snapchat?

    • Sharma15

      there’s a tweak that does just that called asupdatehider. you can select certain apps to never update and remove any notifications to ask you in future.

        Thanks Ive been looking for a tweak like this for a long time!!

    • Samuel

      Just turn on automatic updates and then go to settings and scroll down, open the settings for snapchat (within the settings app) and turn off automatic updates

      • Sharma15

        i did that and there’s no setting as such in snapchat settings.

      • Samuel

        Oh right, sorry, I was thinking about background updates..

  • iPhoneWINS

    war…. this al makes me think i need to use snap chat..

  • Samuel

    The latest Snapchat version is actually 9.12.1.0, released july 15.

  • Phantom was updated to bypass the lock out detection. Works fine

  • CA3SAR

    After installing both tweaks my snapchat will automatically close once i try to login when the credentials are populated. Any Idea?
