Jailbreak tweaks of the week: EmojiSuggest, PasswordRecovery, & more…

Tweaks of the week

There has been a slight resurgence in activity for the jailbreak community this week compared to last week, but things are still a lot slower than they usually are due to the lack of a refreshing jailbreak release for iOS 10.

Despite the lull, there have been some pretty interesting jailbreak tweak releases in Cydia this week, and we’ll be recapping on all of those on this roundup.

Our favorite releases this week

EmojiSuggest – FREE

EmojiSuggest Emojis in the Predictive QuickType Keyboard

EmojiSuggest is a great new tweak that brings Emoji to the predictive keyboard on jailbroken iOS 9 devices.

As you’re typing words, it will suggest Emoji to use instead. This is a feature that comes native on iOS 10, but thanks to the tweak, you can have it on iOS 9 too.

The tweak supports more than 700 words and can replace words with Emojis with just a tap.

You can learn more about EmojiSuggest in our full review.

PasswordRecovery – $1.50

PasswordRecovery

PasswordRecovery lets you recover your lost passwords and passcodes with Touch ID.

It works with your social media apps, as well as with your device’s passcode, and should you ever forget them, you’ll never have to go through complicated password reset processes again, as a simple means of authenticating yourself will provide you with your password so you can sign in more easily.

You can read our full review of PasswordRecovery to learn more about how it works and what it supports.

Other releases this week

iOS 10 jailbreak watch:

With no news from Pangu or TaiG of a jailbreak for iOS 10 just yet, the pressure is on as Apple continues to release rapid software updates for its mobile devices. Currently, iOS 9.3.3 is still the latest jailbreakable firmware, and there’s no projection for when iOS 10 might be jailbroken for the public.

    Is there going to be no jailbreak for 9.3.5?

    • No, I don’t think so. It would make more sense to focus all efforts on iOS 10.

      • RK

        It is sad to learn that last iOS version for iPhone 4S will never be jailbroken.

      • John

        that’s basically because no one wants to waste time on a phone that’s 5 years old and is pretty much obsolete

      • Chuck Wagonne

        Especially sad for me because that’s the phone I just bought. It may be “pretty much obsolete” but that’s actually an incentive when it comes to trying something different like jailbreaking which I might be less apt to do on a new device.

      • Shanjeev Kumar

        The phone is so old and slow that it will not make sense to put a jailbreak on it. Even if you did, installing tweaks will further bog down your phone to almost unusable levels. I have a pretty much unusable 4S on iOS 8 that I keep around as a novelty.

      • Chuck Wagonne

        Thanks for saying so. That sets my mind at ease so that I can just let the whole idea go.
