    For those of you looking for an Auxo replacement just download Seng from the Charlie Hewitt repo, it was just updated to have settings panel, this just even better than Alympus

      Can you please tell the repo?

      • Alberto Espinal

        Sorry i had to put it like that because it looks like it wasn’t approved by iDB

    • sigh

      Thanks. It’s nice, I wouldn’t say it’s better than Alympus. Once it’s polished it will definitely go head to head with Alympus, Persoanlly i prefer Alympus as it still lets me have access to my fave contacts and also I like the way it shows all the toggles in 1 big view rather than scroll view. i can see why some would prefer it over Alympus for sure. Just my 2 cents.

      Seng or Vertex?

      • Alberto Espinal

        Seng, Jeff just did a post on it

  • aizathisyam

    Is there a tweak that can bypass jailbreak detection? I have an app that can run on my iphone because it detects that my iphone is jailbroken.

      • sigh

        xCon is dead no? hasn’t been updated in yonkers

      • :D

        There’s a beta version on Reddit. You have to download the deb.

    • OneOfDaKine

      Try use Flex in Cydia and see if your app has any tweaks

      • aizathisyam

        Thanks… I have just now tried flex and I found that there’s a patch available for the app that I want to use… Downloaded the patch and voila!! the app now thinks that my iphone is not jailbroken and I can now gain access to the app once again…

      • OneOfDaKine


      • All that just to say “thanks it worked.”

    • Seve

      Try Flex, maybe there is a patch out there for that specific app. If not, you could also make your own patch.

  • RafaelMelo

    ScreenPainter a must have!

  • Arsal Cheema

    Is there some other way to purchase items in cydia. I live in a third world country and don’t have amazon here. I want to buy the tweaks but i just simply can’t.

    • PayPal. I don’t even think Cydia uses Amazon anymore.

      • Arsal Cheema

        Lol sorry, I always mix the two up. I don’t have that in my country either. Any suggestions?

      • Nah buddy.

      • Homeless guy

        Cydown. Allows to download paid tweaks for free

  • Syed

    Is there a tweak which shows the live brightness in the foreground while swiping the slider from the control center?

    • Homeless guy

      Ios 8.4 does it

  • MrDakhil












    Slide2kill8 Pro

    SwipeSelection Pro


    VirtualHome 8


    Whatsapp Web Enabler

    3G Unrestricktor 5

    • Damian

      You listed paid tweaks and this was supposed to be free

      • MrDakhil

        Ha sorry I listed everything I have on the phone

  • Roy Chang

    Jeff has this habit “X app allows you to do… well *giggle* X thing on your phone” haha 😀

  • Kevin Smetana

    Great list Jeff as always. The only tweak that is causing issues is CCControls. When using the new toggles, my device crashes into safe mode.

  • Yoni

    what’s better no slow animations or speed intensifier?

  • Luke Per

    i always like these videos but it seems to me that theyre always the same tweaks 🙁

  • Damian

    Jeff add to it:
    OpenNotifier Beta
    Calendar Pro for Notification Center

  • Ken Love

    Is there any tweak that works like OverBoard? Or does anyone know if it will be updated to work in 8.4?

  • Rick Hart

    Hey Jeff cc controls crashes springboard every time I tap a toggle

    • p1noyako

      Use CCSettings for iOS8

  • Pedro Amador

    For me the main reason to jailbreak is called f.lux 😉

  • Nice job, Jeff. There were a couple I didn’t know about that I’m gonna get right now!

    I wish you’d embrace Springtomize. It can do what Barrel/Cylinder does as well as what Zeppelin does, and soooo much more.

  • yssy

    “Cccotrols”. Crashes every time I use it???
