jailbreak tweaks of the week cydia wood

Now that Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.0.2, any chance to downgrade to that firmware version has gone down the drain, so we sure hope you did what you had to do when it was still possible to do it.

This week saw once again a solid amount of jailbreak tweak releases. We’re still waiting for “the” tweak for iOS 9, but until then, all these smaller releases will do just fine.

In this post, we list all the tweaks that were released this week on Cydia. Check them out, and tell us which ones are your favorites.

Auris: lets you choose what music app to open when plugging your headphones in ($1.99)

BrowserBreadcrumbCleaner: automatically closes the tab when tapping “Back to app” in Safari or Chrome (free – review)

BrowserTab: a new way to switch tabs in safari ($1.49)

Bluetooth Devices Renamer: lets you rename Bluetooth devices in Settings (free)

FSVideoOnlyMessages: plays videos in full screen instead of inline in Messages app (free)

Label Notify: replaces icon badges with labels showing number of notifications ($0.99)

Pegasus: brings Picture in Picture mode to all iOS 9 devices ($2.99 – review)

Popcorn: peek and pop on your Home screen icons ($0.99)

Remote Messages (iOS 9): a remote browser front-end for Messages ($3.99)

Safe Alarm 2: gives you more control over your alarms ($0.99)

Screenshot App: lets you prettify your screenshots ($1.99)

SFSafariViewController all the things: adds Safari View Controller support to Twitter, Gmail, WhatsApp and Alien Blue (free – review)

SwitcherTweak Pro: a collection of tweaks for the App Switcher ($0.99)

Tactful: brings 3D Touch support to Cydia (free – review)

Tether: a unique new jailbreak tweak for creating quick Alarms, Reminders, or Calendar events ($0.99 – review)

TypeStatus 2: displays an iMessage typing and read indicator in the Status Bar (free)

    Popcorn is horrible tweak

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      I’m waiting for a tweak that allows the user to scroll up and down in the window while it’s “peeking”.

    • Sigh

      For real lol. It’s dumb enough that it exists but that it costs money is just hilarious.

      • Neil Dsouza

        I don’t get it either–

      • besrate hogsa

        I don’t get it either
        since you are touching the icon
        why not just open the app?

      • NotTodayThx

        same point as any other aesthetic feature in/on everything in the world, the fact that the windows are interactive is cool, so it’s not entirely aesthetic,
        really the question is, whats going on in your psyche to propell you to ask a question akin to “what’s the point of the sky being blue?”

      Do not use the popcorn tweak with an app that is protected by Touch ID, in my case Biolockdown. It gave me an infinite error messages and haptic feedback vibrations and and froze my 6S. I coudnt open Cydia after I managed to reboot my phone. Had to disable Cydia substrate upon reboot to remove this tweak.

      • Satyam Panchal

        Lol it just f@&k up your device.

    • Andy Akins

      If you read about it, you will see that it doesn’t actually load the app so when you close, the app doesn’t stay launched in your apps. [Supposedly] This could save battery if you just need to peek at an app.

      • Satyam Panchal

        Not really it when peek it mean u open app and when u unpeek it close on background too but it take more battery on it when u peek it open app n use cpu which use power when u close it and reopen app again it use more power without popcorn tweak when u open app it use cpu and power but when u press Home button U keep app memory in ram so when u launch app again this time cpu will not take battery it will take less because app will continue from ram. In fact closing app in background take more battery . So popcorn dont put app in background it reopen app all time n it will cause ur battery

  • Gregg

    Thanks, didn’t know TypeStatus got updated, love that tweak. Between Barrel, MessagesCustomizer, NoSlowAnimations, SendDelay, StatusModifier and a bunch of others, I now have a *perfect* phone. Gotta love jailbreak!

    • PA Nard

      Is TypeStatus working weIl now? Libstatusbar made my iPhone respring every time I tapped an app!

      • Gregg

        No problems on my end, working like a charm!

    • (JailbreakQA) King Shoot

      Awesome tweak list

      • Gregg

        Thanks! 😉

    • Leah :]

      is message customizer working?

      • Gregg

        Beautifully!

      • Leah :]

        I tried to get it to work but it kept crashing my messages

      • Dale

        Mine worked great some images didn’t load in background but probably size. Iphone 6S plus! springtomizer is also working on my phone in ios 9 on same phone.

  • Brett Griffin

    Bluetooth Device Renamer disabled my keyboard for App Store and folder renaming. Removed it and everything works again.

  • John Khoury

    does anyone know a tweak that removes errors, or specific errors from the iphone?
    I have this 1009 error that always keeps popping up in every app, and I’m sick of it.

    • Error 1009 means that content you are attempting to access has been blocked by the government of the country you are currently in. You can try to avoid it by using a VPN, however be sure to familiarise yourself with the local laws about content access.

    • NotTodayThx

      i don’t know off the top of my head but i guess if you make a US/UK appleID and/or a location adjuster you will be ok,
      maybe if appcake etc works this can be viewed as a legit way to use these “other” app stores (in your circumstances).

  • battosai

    I can’t buy tweaks on cydia with PayPal i allways have an error message… anyone else have this problem ?

  • Boaz van Veen

    “The” tweak? Not impressed so far or what are you looking forwards to? Even with the 6s, swipeselect is the best.

    • Shaw

      yes. Most practical tweak.

  • Michael Wilson

    I have carplay and I gave up on 9.02 because my phone would just turn off, and I mean all the way off, after 2 minutes plugged into carplay. A jailbroken 9.02 would only take 30 seconds. 9.1 fixed that mostly and beta 9.2 works perfectly. It makes me sad, but I had to pass on it and hope Pangu comes through for 9.2

  • Alexander Raskulov

    For 3d Touch feature, the best one is
    – revealMenu.

  • Maurice Jones

    Tactful and Pegasus!

  • Dale

    I have to say springtomizer 3 being compatable with iOS 9 the best
