28 new tweaks

The pace of jailbreak tweak releases is still fairly high, even a month after the iOS 8.3/8.4 jailbreak. In this latest video, I showcase 28 new jailbreak tweaks.

The tweaks range from app backgrounding tweaks, to Apple Music tweaks, to volume HUD tweaks. There’s a large variety shown off in this latest video. Take a look, and see what you may have missed.

Warning: do not install Lock Saver Free, which is featured in this video. It contains a trojan. See this post for more details.

Which tweak is your favorite from this week’s video? My personal vote would probably have to be Cydia Impactor, but that’s almost unfair given the gravity of the tweak.

Sound off down below in the comments section with your thoughts on these latest releases.

  • Ken Love

    Is there any tweak like OverBoard? Can we expect an update?
    Thank you in advance…

    • Damian

      I think overboard is long dead

  • Smasma

    Good job jeff , really nice tweak collection

  • Je

    No BatteryWaster by Ryan Petrich.

    • Carlos Andres Carrero Saldarri

      Roundification is awesome!

  • Diego Milano

    How do you make that effect when launching an app around minute 3:19?

    • It’s just Dissident itself.

      • Diego Milano

        Thanks, I’ll try it on my test device, though I’m not really interested in backgrounding functionality but anyway. 🙂

      • Diego Milano

        Thanks. I talked to the developer and he has no intentions on porting this app launch effect.

  • Niko

    A month after 8.4 and a week after I updated my phone and my camera is not working, it’s freezing and it only works at times. Apparently I’m not the only one. I need a fix for that. It seems like it’s a software problem and not a hardware problem Restoring doesn’t fix the issue. -_-

    • Blip dude

      Simply put, take it to the Apple Store. If restoring didn’t work, then a trip won’t hurt either. That’s if there is an Apple Store where you live.

      • Niko

        The nearest one is like hours away.

  • Seth

    ControlPane is the best Elite is good too, would be nice if it worked in CallBar

  • Aviorrok

    What about themes of the week?

  • Den

    by far,my new favorite is Cercube 2 ($2.99) for ios 8.4. A fully featured Youtube downloader.you can download the video,or better yet (in my case),just the audio and import it to AppleMusic.

  • Hey Jeff, do you know how to fix “unreachable host” error for 666ultrasn0w repo ?

    • Johnny Bravo

      Just delete the source.

    • Jonathan

      They posted a long time ago that the source is no longer used and can be deleted. It’s the first thing I do when I set up Cydia, is delete that source.

  • Phil Movejam

    does anyone know a tweak that allows you to use your default ringtines in whatsapp?

    • Seth

      CustomNotificationSound on Cydia

  • Glenn DolFan Baptista

    Finally updated from jailbroken 8.1 to jailbroken 8.4 so far so good on my iPhone 6. Anyone got 8.4 running on a iPad mini 2 ? I was thinking of updating from 8.1 on that as well. Let me know thanks.

  • crcking

    thank you Jeff

  • Armed in the Villa

    Roundification doesn’t play well with CCQuickPro

  • Eddie Hines

    How is Cydia Impactor different from just selecting Reset all data and settings in the general section of settings?

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      Because that function doesn’t work on jailbroken devices. Using that function puts your device in an endless loading ring. With this tweak it gives that functionality back to jailbreak without resorting to restore via iTunes.

      • Shadowelite123

        Uhh not for me. I’ve successfully restored using that method from jail broken state. Weird how all the problems that seem to be a general or usual issue for all jailbreakers isn’t for me on my iPhone 5S

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        I don’t know how you could’ve restored from “deleting all content and settings” I’ve tried it since Pawnage tool has been released and its never worked. You end up hard booting your device which brings you back to where you started.

      • Shadowelite123

        i don’t know it always works for me.

      • Eddie Hines

        wow! I have never tried to restore a jailbroken phone before OTA…i always plugged it in to get rid of jailbreak! Thanks for the update.

  • tamp0i

    When i have LockHTML4 enabled, my lockscreen’s time is not the same as my dash time. Anyone else have this problem?

  • Harag Robert

    myimei.unlock is really high priced, guys don’t use it. I like attt-iphoneunlocking, I privately believe it’s better, they are the best unlocking website I have ever use.
