While security researcher Luca Todesco may have retired from the jailbreak community, the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10 lives on in those of us who made the jump when we were told to do so.
For those that are hanging onto their jailbreak, you might’ve noticed that there have been some attention-worthy jailbreak tweak releases this week, and in this roundup, we’ll go over all of them starting with our favorites.
If you share all kinds of things from your iPhone or iPad with friends more often than the average Joe does, then a new free jailbreak tweak called Share Anywhere by wizages might be worth checking out.
Complete with Activator integration and an all-in-one menu, this tweak makes it easier to share photos, screenshots, and blocks of text from anywhere in iOS.
The background in your iPhone’s Weather app typically illustrates what the weather conditions are like outside, but if you’re looking for something a little different, check out a new free jailbreak tweak called TransparentWeather by CydiaGeek.
This tweak does away with the animated weather background and makes the app transparent so you can see a ghosted image of your Home screen wallpaper behind all of your weather information.
Anyone with an iPhone should know by now that you can swipe to the left on the Lock screen to quickly access your camera. On the other hand, not everyone wants their camera to be readily accessible to anybody who picks the phone up.
A new free jailbreak tweak called NoLockScreenCam by i0s_tweak3r is the answer to this ongoing dilemma, as it disables access to the camera from the Lock screen.
In the official Reddit app for iOS, gray vertical lines of varying heights appear between comments underneath posts. They’re intended to help lead the eyes, making it easier to differentiate between responses, but the gray isn’t exactly easy for everyone to see.
A new free jailbreak tweak called ColorComments by Ben Giannis lets you add a splash of color to those lines, not only for improving the efficiency of how your eyes distinguish between each one, but also making the app look more unique in the process.
The Lock screen is a user interface you see countless times on any given day. And because you see it so many times, you want the wallpaper on your Lock screen to look appealing instead of just plain, and that’s where a new jailbreak tweak called WeatherLock by rainwolf is going to receive some cheers.
If you have an iPhone, then you’re no stranger to notifications. In fact, if you have a lot of friends and use a lot of different kinds of apps, then you probably get flooded with notifications from day to day. These notifications clutter up your Home screen with badges, which aren’t exactly the prettiest things in the world to see.
A jailbreak tweak dubbed Confero 2 by AtomDevTeam lets you clean things up by grouping all your apps with missed notification badges into a convenient little box that can be invoked from anywhere. It also provides new notification badge theming options that are much nicer to look at.
There are a number of extraneous things in your iPhone’s Settings app that you might never use, but the problem is amplified even more for jailbreakers because some of the features can’t be used without losing the jailbreak entirely.
A new free jailbreak tweak called SettingsPatch removes unwanted clutter and disables dangerous preference panes on jailbroken devices.
It wasn’t long ago that we showed you a jailbreak tweak called Lightify, which applied a light skin to the Spotify Music app’s typically dark UI.
On the other hand, a new free jailbreak tweak called Brightify by iOS developer cyanisaac aims to accomplish similar goals, all while coming with its own unique benefits that competing tweaks don’t offer.
Apple limits some of their watch face designs to certain Apple Watch models. For example, the Hermès and Nike editions of Apple Watches offer their own unique faces that can’t be accessed on any other Apple Watch. Or at least, not without an iPhone jailbreak…
iOS developer AppleBetas has been trying to port these faces to other models of the Apple Watch for quite some time, and he appears to be demonstrating success in his endeavors. As a result, the jailbreak tweak dubbed SpecialFaces is now in beta. If you’re wondering how to get the Hermès and Nike+ faces on your Apple Watch, this is how.
A major milestone for the iOS 10 jailbreak is officially here; the highly popular Springtomize jailbreak tweak is now compatible with iOS 10 thanks to its latest release, which was a joint effort between iOS developers Filippo Bigarella and Janosch Hübner (sharedRoutine).
Springtomize 4 has been re-written from top to bottom with improvements to not only its design, but also to its set of features. In this piece, we’ll go over everything you can expect from Springtomize 4.
