Possible downgrade to iOS 10.2 from iOS 10.2.1 for some users

By Joaquim Barbosa on Feb 20, 2017

Are you are stuck on iOS 10.2.1 or higher, having missed the iOS 10.2 signing window and therefore the Yalu jailbreak? If so, you may be in luck today, provided you have the correct setup. Early reports have come in that some devices are creating nonce collisions on iOS 10.3 b1, providing an indirect route back to iOS 10.2 through Prometheus.

For this clever workaround to come off, you must have a device which produces collisions, namely the iPhone 5s or (possibly, though not confirmed on iOS 10.3 b1), an iPad Air. If you do, you may be able to downgrade from iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.2 and jailbreak, by first downloading and installing iOS 10.3 beta 1, and then downgrading to iOS 10.2 using futurerestore.

PerfectFit automatically resizes ‘outdated’ apps to support newer iPhone resolutions

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 20, 2017

Every so often you might come across an app you need from the App Store where the developer hasn’t even bothered to update the interface for the latest iPhone resolutions. In most cases, this means they’re still designed to work on the iPhone 4s resolution or earlier, and this leaves unsightly black bars at the top and bottom of the app.

As frustrating as this is, Apple still allows the apps to run (not for much longer), but they just won’t look as nice. A new free jailbreak tweak called PerfectFit by Tony Kraft can force these apps to run at a much more native-feeling resolution so they look better too. Read More

Sonus is a highly customizable volume HUD replacement for iPhone and iPad

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 19, 2017

The volume HUD in iOS has always left a lot to be desired; it pops up in the center of the screen and then seemingly lingers for an eternity, all while getting in the way of everything, whether you’re watching videos, looking at photos, browsing the web, or doing anything else while trying to change your device’s volume level.

A new jailbreak tweak called Sonus by ubik is just one of many attempts to make the volume HUD better in iOS, and unlike much of the competition out there, it has a lot of options that you can take advantage of to deck out the tweak and make it look and feel the way you want it to. Read More

 

TranslucentMessages makes the iOS 10 Messages app translucent with stunning blur effects

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 18, 2017

Your iPhone is a tool of communication, so you might spend a lot of your time lurking in the Messages app. As you know, it’s just as dull as almost every other stock app on your device; plain and white. Since you spend so much time in the app, why not give it a makeover that could make you enjoy using it even more?

That’s where a new free jailbreak tweak called TranslucentMessages by AppleBetas comes in handy, as it takes what is otherwise a boring UI and gives it some fancy translucent visuals. Read More

 

This tweak will let you force cellular network connections when launching certain apps

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 18, 2017

When you’re constantly around Wi-Fi networks that block access to certain sites and apps, such as those in educational institutions, you might need to use cellular data to bypass these blocks. The only problem is, you typically have to go through the trouble of turning Wi-Fi off manually, which can be a pain.

That’s the idea behind a new free jailbreak tweak called NoWifiWhenRunThisPlz by HiDan, which lets you configure the apps you want to force cellular usage on, rather than Wi-Fi, when launched. Read More

 

AccessWithinApps prevents launch of Control and Notification Centers in specific apps

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 18, 2017

Control Center and Notification Center each can be accessed from any mobile app by swiping up from the bottom of the screen or swiping down from the top of the screen. In some apps, this gesture conflicts with the those that already exist in the app.

While Apple helps to mitigate issues by providing users with the ‘second chance grabber’ in full-screen apps, some apps still don’t play nicely because the gesture is too close to other functions in the app. Giving you more control over this matter is a new free jailbreak tweak called AccessWithinApps by Cole Cabral.

NoClose prevents you from accidentally force-quitting apps that are currently playing media

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 18, 2017

Sometimes when force-quitting apps from your App Switcher, you end up closing an app that’s playing media in the background by accident. This forces you to re-open the app and re-play the song you were just listening to from the beginning… all over again.

If you do this quite often, then you probably have App Switcher OCD and are clearing your App Switcher more often than you need to, but that’s beside the point; a new free jailbreak tweak called NoClose by Skylerk99 can help prevent you from accidentally force-quitting apps that are playing media in the background by prompting you beforehand.
