iPhone 3GS untethered bootrom exploit released

Today saw the release of a new bootrom exploit for the iPhone 3GS, an unpatchable vulnerability which gives jailbreakers total control of this device forever.

NoMoreStories removes the Stories feature from the Facebook app

Facebook has made a lot of unwanted changes to the mobile app in the last few weeks; unfortunately, because they refuse to list anything new in the App Store change logs, everyone who uses Facebook gets duped into installing the changes whether they want them or not.

One of the latest unpopular additions to the Facebook app is the Snapchat-like Stories feature, which appears at the top. If you don’t like Facebook’s new Stories feature, you can use a new free jailbreak tweak called NoMoreStories by iKilledAppl3 to get rid of it once and for all.

Hide the waveform and activity bar when using voice memos with discreetVoiceMemos

The Voice Memos app is useful for recording conversations to listen back on at a later date. On the other hand, when trying use it discreetly, the app is far from helpful.

If you were hoping for a solution to this problem, then you’re in luck because a new free jailbreak tweak called discreetVoiceMemos by CydiaGeek helps to make your Voice Memos usage more sneaky by hiding these highly-visible features from your device when the app is in use.
