Want to remove your jailbreak without updating iOS? The just released Cydia Impactor can help you unjailbreak your iPhone with little effort. In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to revert back to stock iOS and remove your jailbreak without updating your iOS version. Read More
A powerful new tool has just been released for jailbreakers to “unjailbreak”. It’s called Cydia Impactor, and it’s an on-device tool that lets you remove and revert all changes made to a device to return it to its stock configuration.
The most notable thing about this tool is that it allows you to return to stock without needing to upgrade your device. Say, for example, you wanted to sell your iPhone, but wanted to retain its jailbreak-ability to increase resale value. Normally, if you wanted to perform a full system restore, you’d be forced to upgrade to the latest firmware, and thus lose your jailbreak. With Cydia Impacter, you can restore your device to stock without upgrading. Read More
Looking for a quick way to launch pre-selected apps on your jailbroken iPhone? Cole Schaefer’s DockBar ($0.99) may be the tweak that meets your needs. It’s a great looking release that brings a customizable launcher to iOS.
DockBar works hand-in-hand with Activator as its means of invocation. Thus, you can access your quick launch side bar from nearly anywhere in iOS, and that includes while within apps and on the Home screen. Read More
One of the very first things that I tried when I got the iPod touch 6th generation (full review) was to jailbreak. To my surprise, both the PP jailbreak for Mac and the Windows-only TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.4 worked out of the box. This surprised me because in times past, the tools used to perform the jailbreak needed to be updated to support new devices.
With the iPod touch 6th generation, this is not so; you can jailbreak immediately. In this post, I’ll show you how easy it is to jailbreak your iPod touch 6 using the latest version of TaiG. Read More
The folks at TaiG have released yet another beta for the iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool on Windows. Labeled version 2.4.3 beta, this update is there to optimize the jailbreak process.
As TaiG has been doing for some time now, they are suggesting that jailbreakers stick to the public versions of the TaiG tool, and leave the beta versions to testers. In this post, you’ll find the download links for both the publicly available version of TaiG and the beta version. Read More
The iPod touch 6th generation can be jailbroken out of the box, because it comes with iOS 8.4, and the PP iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool for Mac works with the new iPods.
In fact, I just jailbroke my device no less than 5 minutes ago, and it worked without a hitch. If you guys have kept up with me, you know how much I absolutely loathed using my 5th-gen touch due to its pedestrian speed.
Seeing that the new iPod touch packs much more power than the device it replaces, I’d say this is a good candidate for a jailbroken device, or at the very least, it might become my go-to test device. Read More

Snapchat uses your location to present you with custom geofilters, which are basically stickers that you can place on your Snaps that reflect your current location. So, for example, you couldn’t normally add a Paris filter to your Snaps unless you were actually in Paris.
With Phantom’s location spoofing option, it’s possible to snag filters for any location that you desire around the world. It’s super-easy to use as well. We’ll show you how to spoof your location in Snapchat to add custom filters in our video tutorial. Read More
Back in the day, there was a jailbreak tweak called Backgrounder, which brought true app backgrounding to users before iOS even had native multitasking. That tweak no longer works for the latest firmware, but a new tweak called Watchdog aims to make true app backgrounding available today on iOS 8.
Watchdog is a beta tweak that’s available via developer Allan Kerr’s third-party repo. In this post, I’ll show you how you can get Watchdog on your jailbroken device, and share a few use case scenarios. Read More
Timeout is a jailbreak tweak that’s currently in beta. It’s a tweak that lets you add a custom timeout setting to Cydia. Setting a custom timeout value for Cydia is handy for those occasions when you encounter long wait times with slow repos. Instead of waiting for what seems like an eternity on a slow repo, you can use Timeout to force Cydia to refresh in a quicker fashion. Read More
As Sebastien alluded to in yesterday’s jailbreak tweaks of the week post, last week saw a colossal amount of new jailbreak tweaks released. There’s probably a good chance that, simply due to the amount of new tweaks released, you missed some.
In this post, I’ll showcase 35 new tweaks on video. You’ll find a mix of free, paid, and even some beta/unreleased tweaks. How many of these tweaks do you have installed on your iPhone? Have a look and see for yourself. Read More
The PP untethered jailbreak for iOS 8.4 is out, and it has been confirmed to work. As we continue to wait on a possible TaiG jailbreak for Mac, the 25PP team is making it so that Mac users can jailbreak now.
Of course, you can always use the virtual machine method for jailbreaking iOS 8.4 using TaiG on Mac, but the PP jailbreak tool is as simple as simple gets for Mac users. Inside, we’ll show you how to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8.4 on Mac using PP jailbreak. Read More
Finally, Mac users can join in on the fun. 25PP has released a Mac version of the iOS 8.4 jailbreak, allowing Mac users to jailbreak natively on their machines for the very first time.
I have personally confirmed that this tool works, so you should feel confident about using this to jailbreak your device if you’re a Mac user who has been waiting. Read More
If you’re connected to a Wi-Fi connection and use Apple Music, the music you listen to will be streamed at 256kbps. This is considered to be “high quality” according to Apple.
When connected to a cellular network, however, the bitrate will fluctuate based on connection quality. It’s safe to assume that the cellular bitrate, while never officially established, is always less than the 256kbps that you get over Wi-Fi.
This is basically confirmed by the appearance of a new settings switch found in iOS 9 beta 3, which allows users to force high quality (256kbps) bitrate streams over cellular connections.
But what if you’re running iOS 8.4, which lacks the option to force high quality over cellular? Read More
TaiG is pushing ahead with new releases of its TaiG jailbreak tool on an almost daily basis it seems. This latest version of TaiG is a beta release, version 2.4.2.
The latest beta version of the TaiG jailbreak tool is Windows-only, which isn’t exactly a surprise given TaiG’s release history. It also serves, more importantly, to fix jailbreak errors related to 30% and 40% hang-ups during the jailbreak process. Read More
As we noted earlier, Cydia now features the ability to downgrade apps and tweaks. With version 1.1.23, saurik gave users the ability to downgrade their tweaks via the Cydia package page if there is an older version available on the repo that the tweak or app resides on. In this post, we will show you how easy it is to downgrade a Cydia package. Read More
Indulge is a brand-new first-of-its-kind jailbreak tweak that allows users to view the most popular Cydia releases based on aggregate user install data.
Cydia has never had a way to view the most popular jailbreak tweaks available for download, but with the recent 1.1.19 update, it can now do that and a whole lot more. Indulge is a jailbreak tweak that’s available on developer Steve Rolfe’s beta repo. If you’d like to take it for a test drive, check out the installation information that follows. Read More
Another day, another big Cydia release. Cydia 1.1.23 brings some big changes to the table, as saurik has added package downgrade support, the ability to use find extensions like TweakHub.
The update also fixes a crashing issue that occurs after clearing caches. Doing so would cause Cydia not to be able to run at all.
Needless to say, this is a pretty large update for Cydia users, and has long-term positive implications on jailbreakers and their Cydia usage habits. Have a look at our post for the full change log. Read More
