Tweaks of the week

With the launch of the new iPhone 7 & 7 Plus, and the release of iOS 10 not too long ago, the jailbreak is in a bit of a lull right now. Nevertheless, Cydia is still surprising us with new jailbreak tweak releases throughout the week, and we’ve been covering them as they’ve been launched.

In this roundup, we’ll show you all the jailbreak tweaks that were released this week, starting with our favorites.

Our favorite releases this week

Vinculum – $0.99

Vinculum is a Nexus-inspired app drawer for jailbroken iOS devices that lets you get to any of your installed apps in a jiffy.

The tweak includes a search bar to help you sort through all of your installed apps, and even includes customization options so you can make the interface look how you want it to.

Lithium Ion – FREE

Lithium Ion Examples

Lithium Ion is a new way to theme the battery indicator in your Status Bar without having to use Winterboard to do it.

The tweak comes with a variety of themes that you can further customize with additional color options. You can also add in your own themes or download more from Cydia.

Lithium Ion is fully compatible with Lithium themes, although some porting may be necessary.

    Lost my jailbreak while trying to stash system applications folder. Something went wrong and had to restore to iOS 10. Very disappointed losing jailbreak. Hope to see a jailbreak soon for iOS 10 or later.

      its called go into safe mode and remove the tweak thats causing instability.

        I guess you did not quite get my exact problem. I manually tried to stash system applications folder using iFile and did it wrong so ended up messing with springboard. Nothing happened due to any tweak being installed/ uninstalled. None of your concern, but still thought of clearing the doubt.

        Thanks for your valuable comment though. Appreciate it.

        I coudn’t even see any application on the homescreen. No question of launching any application. No spotlight either.
