Music lovers, whether you’re using Apple’s stock music app or a third-party music app like Spotify or Pandora, you are probably used to either opening Control Center or the app you’re listening from to control your music.
Size mismatch errors are something that seem to plague me every once in a blue moon when I try to install a jailbreak tweak right after an update is released, or after Cydia refreshes its sources.
The issue can occur when Cydia tries to fully refresh its sources at the time of a repository sync, and I’m sure some of you have probably stumbled upon this same error one time or another.
If you ever do get a size mismatch error in Cydia, we’ll be explaining in this short tutorial how you can fix the problem and install the jailbreak tweak you want to download once and for all. Read More

Facebook and Facebook Messenger users who have a jailbroken iOS device are going to love the benefits of using a new jailbreak tweak called SilentMessenger.
This tweak is going to provide these users with additional steps to protect their privacy and keep their footprint in the Facebook apps as minimal as possible from the perspective of other users who are online. Moreover, it also supercharges some other features of the apps.
Apple Maps comes with a feature known as night mode. With it, after a certain point during the day when the sunlight goes down, Maps will enter a lower-light state with darker colors as to be easier on your eyes for night-time navigation.
If you really like night mode, and wish there was a way to keep it enabled 100% of the time (even during the day) then you might be interested in a new free jailbreak tweak called AlwaysNightMode. Read More
The two most commonly-used volume modes in iOS are the ringer volume and media volume. The ringer volume controls the volume of text tones, ring tones, and notification sounds, while the media volume controls the volume of your music and videos.
The only problem is, iOS likes to default to the ringer volume all the time, unless you have media playing. If you do, that’s the only time the volume buttons will actually change the media volume level.
If you don’t like that solution, then hold on to your seats, because we’re going to be showing you a new free jailbreak tweak called SwitchHUD, which takes volume switching to the next level by letting you manually toggle between the two at any time with an Activator action. Read More
If you’ve ever had a folder name that was too long for iOS to display, then you probably had an atrocious-looking folder title like the one above; cut off, and ended with an ellipsis.
Unfortunately, the way stock iOS handles longer folder names makes it nearly impossible to tell what the entire folder title is.
Another week, another jailbreak tweak roundup. We bring you these every week to make sure you never miss a beat.
We’ve seen some interesting jailbreak tweak releases throughout this week, and this piece, we’ll talk about what our favorite releases were, and then show you what else launched in Cydia this week. Read More
Your iOS device has multiple volume settings, and each one controls something different.
For example, you have your media volume, which affects your song and video sound output, and you have your ringer volume, which affects your ringtones, text tones, and notification sounds. But there are also other volume settings that you can set where applicable.
Volume Mixer 2 is a jailbreak tweak that provides you with an interface where you can conveniently adjust all of those volume levels at one time, and in this review, we’ll talk about how it works. Read More
We’ll walk you through how the tweak works in this review and talk a little about why it could be an optimal solution for you.
Anyone who uses their iPhone to pick up calls, whether they’re phone calls or FaceTime calls, knows that when music is playing, iOS will automatically pause the music until the phone call ends. When it does, iOS will resume the song where it left off.
Those who don’t like how the music resumes after a phone call really have no way to disable the feature on a stock iPhone; instead, you would have to go back to the app that is playing the music and pause it manually.
A new free jailbreak tweak called PauseAfterCall solves this problem. Read More
Using a Bluetooth keyboard with your iOS device is not unheard of, especially with the much more powerful iPad Pro that Apple is dubbing a true mobile competitor for notebook computers. Unfortunately, what Apple lets you do with them is quite limited.
In this review, we’ll talk about what Molar allows you to do on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard. Read More
It’s Sunday again, and that means we’ll be sharing a list of all the jailbreak tweaks that were released in Cydia this week.

If something looks a little different to you in the 3D Touch Quick Actions menu examples above, that’s because you are seeing the effects of a new jailbreak tweak called Brevis, which is available now in Cydia for $1.00.

We will be showing you how the tweak works and what it’s capable of in this piece, and you might just want to pick it up yourself! Read More
You may have heard that the best security is something that lays in plain sight. In some instances, this can be right, because people tend to over-think things.
A jailbreak tweak called Callisto is now available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $1.49 that lets you use the current time for a passcode instead of something you set for yourself.
Over time, apps accumulate cache files that will take up valuable space on your device. Since iOS devices don’t have upgradeable storage, users of devices with smaller storage capacities have to be careful and closely monitor the amount of storage space their apps are using.
Lautus is a new free jailbreak tweak that empowers users with clearing app caches as they grow over time and it utilizes 3D Touch for use. In this review, we’ll walk you through how the tweak works and talk about what it does. Read More
For those lurking the Changes tab in Cydia, you may have noticed an interesting new jailbreak tweak called Edge, which claims to bring a feature to iPhones that is typically found on a competing handset – the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Available in Cydia for $1.99, Edge lets you access a useful new menu from anywhere in iOS with a special slide gesture. The menu provides access to apps, tasks, contacts, and more, and in this review, we’ll be showing you all about how the tweak works! Read More
Those interested in a different kind of passcode entry method from their Lock screens may be interested in a new jailbreak tweak called SlideMe, which just hit Cydia this week for $1.49.
Instead of the typical boring number pad, this tweak gives your Lock screen a rotary-style passcode input interface, as shown above. In this review, we’ll walk you through SlideMe and show you what it’s capable of. Read More
