It’s been an exciting week for the jailbreak community. Not only have we seen the official public release of the Cydia-integrated Electra jailbreak tool for iOS 11.0-11.1.2, but we’ve learned that Saurik is still working on official updates for Cydia and Mobile Substrate.
That aside, tweak developers have been launching new releases for both iOS 10 and iOS 11 all week long, and we’ll show you all of them in this roundup. As usual, we’ll kick things off by showcasing our favorites first and then outline the rest of them afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
LegiBilly – FREE
LegiBilly is a jailbreak tweak that lets you colorize various text strings throughout iOS.
The tweak currently supports Home Screen app icon labels, Status Bar text, and Spotlight search text, just to name a few. Furthermore, the tweak sports an RGB color picker, which lets you choose from an infinite pool of colors rather than having to select one from a predefined list.
You can learn more about LegiBilly and why it’s worth checking out in our full review.
Mypomonella – FREE
Jailbreakers use the Cydia store to download jailbreak tweaks and extensions to modify their device, but did you know that you can customize Cydia itself as well?
A new free jailbreak tweak called Mypomanella puts countless Cydia-based customization options at your disposal. With it, you can control how and when the app refreshes its sources, enable full-screen mode, and disable functions in the app, among other things.
You can learn more about Mypomanella’s full feature list in our full review.
Other releases this week

With Electra now fully public, we should expect to see more iOS 11-based jailbreak tweaks as time goes on. But in the meantime, we’re likely to continue seeing iOS 10 jailbreak tweaks until Saurik implements official updates for Cydia and other dependencies.
If you’re looking for more tweaks to try, then consider adding third-party Cydia repositories to your device to expand your scope and check out last week’s jailbreak tweak roundup just in case you missed anything special. We also have a plethora of dedicated roundups that can help you find new tweaks for tweaking your jailbroken iOS 10 device below:
