Three jailbreak tweaks for Pokémon GO to try right now

Jailbreak Tweaks for Pokemon GO

Two things of great interest for iPhone owners as of late are Pokémon GO and the new Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3.

So if you were fans of both worlds, and you want to somehow combine the two, then get ready for our roundup of some of the best jailbreak tweaks for use with Pokémon GO.

The best jailbreak tweaks for Pokémon GO

In this piece, we’ll talk about various jailbreak tweaks that you can use to compliment the Pokémon GO experience. If you’re not already playing the game, and want to join in on the fun, Pokémon GO can be downloaded from the App Store for free.

Some of them are useful, and others can be considered cheats. Please use your jailbreak tweaks responsibly; we aren’t responsible if you get banned from Pokémon GO for misusing the game against Niantic’s terms of service.

All of these jailbreak tweaks are free to download, but they haven’t all been tested on iOS 9.3.3 and most are in beta stages, so try them at your own risk.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Pokemon Lock


Pokemon Lock is for the hardcore Pokémon GO players out there who want to play the game right from the Lock screen. Yep, that’s it!

We recommend that you have unlimited external battery pack stashes, because this tweak will drain your battery much quicker than usual. It’s also worth noting that the tweak works best on devices with higher amounts of RAM.

To use this tweak, you must disable your passcode.

Pokemon Lock is available in Ziph0n’s repository in Cydia, so you’ll need to add the following repository to get to it:

2. PokeGo LS GIF

Pokemon GO team Jailbreak Tweak GIF

PokeGo LS GIF is for those of you who love Pokémon GO so much that you actually want to go as far as tweaking your device to show off your dedication to the game, right as you wake it up.

With this tweak, an animated GIF of the three teams in the game fills the Lock screen and alternates between the different legendary birds.

The tweak is smooth and well-polished, so it may be worth taking a look at.

3. Poke Go ++


With a jailbreak tweak called Poke Go ++, you can access many useful features from within the Pokémon GO app interface itself.

From the buttons added to your app’s interface, you can access the tweak’s settings for toggling features on or off, see a map of Pokémon near you, view the stats of your Pokémon, and even hide or show the menu.

From the settings, you can do things like spoof your location and roam around with a joystick, but to be completely honest, we don’t recommend using these free-roaming location features since Niantic has started cracking down on those who cheat in the game. Stick to using the other features instead if you’ll be trying this tweak.

Nevertheless, the abilies to see your Pokémon stats and see where Pokémon are hiding in your area with crowd-sourced map data are definitely among the top useful features that players could use for legitimate purposes.

Poke Go ++ can be downloaded for free from the following Cydia repository:

Wrapping up

These are some of the best we’ve seen that we can confirm work. Your results may vary, but if we’ve missed anything, feel free to let us know in the comments!

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Nope. I had 4 accounts. One was level 7 and all it did was snipe a few pokemon for a day 🙂 TRUST me… no matter how little you will be PERMA banned by the end of the week. How do I know this? I’m an active user in the Discord chat… where all the cheaters are 🙂 Hell, if you walk to fast… banned. Level too high at the gym? banned. Too many excellent catches? banned. Travelled too far? banned. Used a jailbreak tweak… BANNED lol. Trust me, you will get the email. xD yep, all the jailbreak tweakers were banned and reported in the chat. It is even in the EMAIL they send when they ban you specifically talking about tweaks 🙂 Ban wave every week. No one is spared. 🙂

        You sound like a tool

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Do you even know what a tool sounds like? how does typing on the internet sound like a tool? Nice one buddy.

      • Jerry
      • Bugs Bunnay

        Unfortunately that person IS a tool. Just wants to win in arguments…

      • It’s inevitable, they’ll eventually work out ways to detect cheating on a more accurate level.

    • Thing is, it’s their bad programming that is also tripping non-tweaked players to be banned as well. So does it really matter at this point? If they aren’t going to fix their application then why not use a tweak? I pointed out several times on my podcast series that there are massive glitches that allow you to grab pokemon without even moving around or throwing a ball to catch one.. I brought this to their attention and they said they are working on it.. ahh I can replicate it right now even with all the updates they’ve done.. They don’t seem to care, they have their own agendas.. and I don’t even play pokemon, I gave it a shot and now I just have it to check against so called bad “tweaks” are causing issues and they want to ban real players. There’s a lot of applications in the app store that have this exact same issue, flat out it’s bad programming not tweaking that is hurting them.. if you can even say it’s hurting them with all the money they make daily on this nonsense.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Yep. 😀 non cheating account was also banned 😀 lvl 3 😀 they will find you 😉 and GET you. lol

    • Bugs Bunnay

      Well if it’s not obvious enough already. I’m willing to bet you’re also that person who tells people it’s illegal to j-walk lmao

      • Jibbley Gravey

        I drive a car and a motorcycle… poor much? Who goes around waking anywhere? I’d never be in a situation to talk to anyone about walking somewhere xD I assume you’re poor, don’t own a car and walk often.

      • Bugs Bunnay

        You can actually assume a lot about me, but unfortunately you are wrong on all aspects 🙂 triggered much? The best part is when you assumed i’m poor. You think i’m overweight as well?? Lmao

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Well if you walk everywhere I would assume you are in decent shape… 🙂 poor man. Don’t find too many overweight poor men. 😉

      • Bugs Bunnay

        Alright trigglypuff. Whatever floats your boat. Not stooping to your level.

        Sucks man… pretty crappy car btw 🙁

  • Jerry

    They need to make a coins tweak. Niantic is robbing they’re customers blind. Once you hit level 20 they practically force you on spending hundreds if you ever want progress in the game. The most pointless pokemons run from you making you use a bunch of pokeballs raspberries and they no longer give you lures capsules or incense for leveling up. I made it to level 20 without spending a dime and once I hit 20 the pokestops started giving me little to none items until I finally spent 20$ all of sudden a lot more pokemons started popping up and pokestops started giving me a lot of items again. I’m not for cheating but niantic is cheating us after we hit level 20

    • Blip dude

      Huh?? I’m in level 21 and while it has been a bit tight in the bag with the items, I have yet to spend a dime in the game, and probably won’t anytime soon.
