This week started out pretty slow, but once the end of the week came around, things started to heat up for the jailbreak community pretty quickly.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the new jailbreak tweak releases that became available in Cydia this week, starting with our favorites and moving on to the rest afterwards.
Our favorite releases this week
Flex 3 – $4.00 (free limited trial)
Flex 3 is an incredible platform that lets jailbreakers create their own patches for the system or for installed apps, and it’s even better than its predecessors.
Built completely from Swift 3, Flex 3 is now faster and easier for the developer to maintain.
Moreover, a cloud-based system lets users mingle with one another by sharing their patches with the rest of the Flex 3 community. Users can also take advantage of commenting, up-voting, and down-voting packages based on whether or not they work as advertised.
Flex 3 is available as a free download for a limited trial version that offers access to only some of the platform’s free patches, but by paying the $4.00 price tag, you will unlock full access to everything it has to offer. You can read our full post about Flex 3 to learn more about it.
FlixEnhancer – $1.99
FlixEnhancer takes the popular Netflix video streaming app to the next level with a number of new features.
With this tweak, users can utilize a better media rating system, as well as a better way to skip through video to a future point, and even take advantage of improvements to sound quality when using Chromecast devices.
FlixEnhancer works with the latest version (9.0.3) of the Netflix app, so it’s packaged up with a nice red bow and ready to go.

Scriblit – $1.50
Scriblit is a really cool new jailbreak tweak that lets you draw and annotate on your device’s screen.
It comes with a variety of options, such as color choices, pen size, and alpha level to make sure to get the best annotation effect you can get. You can also use the built-in tools to save screenshots of your scribbles and share them with others.
You can use it for a variety of things, whether you want to show someone how to do something, or you just want to scribble on a photo for laughs.
