Episode 119: A talk about the awesome new upcoming jailbreak tweak called Multiplexer, the tweaks of the week, TaiG for Mac finally arrives, and a new tweak lets you have App Store-inspired reviews on Cydia.
Cydia Ratings is an awesome new beta jailbreak tweak that brings an App Store-inspired ratings interface to all of your favorite Cydia tweaks.
Ever since Cydia debuted, there’s never been a real way to go about rating the tweaks housed inside. Users are thus made to either take the plunge on a tweak without knowing how good it is, or wait for a review from iDB. Now, with Cydia Reviews, users will have a legitimate way of reviewing and reading reviews for all of the tweaks available on Cydia. Read More
I don’t know about you, but I find it kind of tedious to switch between keyboards on iOS. I find it tedious, because have to tap that little language button, which requires a precise tap on the keyboard.
Instead, wouldn’t it be nice if you could just perform a simple swipe gesture to switch between the keyboards that you have configured? A new tweak called KeySwipe lets you do just that. Read More

If you’ve experienced issues with jailbreaking your iPhone using the OS X version of TaiG, then it is recommended that you update to this latest version. Read More
Let’s face it, as jailbreakers we have a lot of stereotypes created about us. Some are undoubtedly true, and some are perhaps a bit more far-fetched. The fact of the matter is that jailbreaking brings its own type of lingo, thinking, and funny moments.
With this in mind, I came up with 10 jailbreak stereotypes for this tongue-in-cheek video. How many of these jailbreak stereotypes are you guilty of? Read More
Today, Ryan Petrich teased his upcoming release, VideoPane2—the follow-up to the popular picture-in-picture video tweak for jailbroken iPhones. VideoPane allows you to multitask and watch videos anywhere on iOS.
Considering how much work has gone into VideoPane, and what it allows you to do, it wouldn’t be surprising if Petrich decided to charge for the update. However, the update will be free for those of you who purchased VideoPane in the past, regardless of when it was purchased.
The past week was a big week for jailbreak releases. It saw the release of the Surenix and Kyle Howells collaboration—Alympus—which brings a reimagined App Switcher to iOS 8.4. It also saw the release of Watchdog Pro—a multitasking tweak with tons of options.
Did you miss any good Cydia releases from the past week? Unless you’ve been watching Cydia like a hawk, it’s likely that you may have. View our full list to see what gems you may have looked over.
As we told you about earlier, the iOS 8.4 jailbreak is now officially available on Mac from TaiG. The TaiG jailbreak tool for Mac is a simple and easy to use tool to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad on your Mac without having to resort to using a virtual machine.
In this video tutorial, I will show you how to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on your Mac using the TaiG tool. Read More
ProximityActivator is a recently released tweak that adds a new proximity sensor gesture to your list of Activator gestures. This makes it possible to perform certain actions simply by waving your hand in front of your iPhone.
In the video example that follows, I’ll show you how I can invoke the App Switcher by waving my hand in front of my iPhone 5’s proximity sensor. Read More
Multiplexer is an upcoming multitasking jailbreak tweak from Elijah Frederickson and Andrew Abosh, the same developers that brought us the high-regarding multitasking tweak, ReachApp.
Building on the success of ReachApp, Multiplexer is actually six tweaks built into one. In fact, each of Multiplexer’s features could probably stand on their own two feet—for example, ReachApp is a part of Multiplexer.
It’s still very much a work-in-progress, but Frederickson and Abosh have teased Multiplexer’s feature-set over the last week. I’ve been around jailbreaking for a long time, and this looks like it could possibly be one of the biggest and most ambitious releases that we’ve seen in quite some time. Read More
Finding the stock iOS passcode interface to be a bit boring? If so, then keep your eyes peeled for Epicentre, an upcoming jailbreak tweak that adds a gorgeous new interface to the passcode Lock screen.
Epicenter replaces the stock passcode interface with a beautifully animated setup that looks like it was inspired by a traditional rotary phone. It features a preference panel with several options for customizing the look and security of the passcode entry interface. Watch our full video preview to see how. Read More
Episode 118: We discuss some of the top myths about jailbreaking, the new Alympus tweak from Surenix and Kyle Howells, new jailbreak malware surfaces, Snapchat backtracks on banning jailbreakers from its app, and several new jailbreak tweaks.
Well-respected developer Kyle Howells, and renowned UI designer, Surenix, have teamed up for something special. Their new collaborative project, called Alympus, has just been released on Cydia, and it brings a completely redesigned App Switcher, Control Center, and Music Controls interface to iOS 8.
Alympus was teased this past Sunday, but that teaser was just that—a tease. In the video that follows, I’ll break down all of Alympus’ features. Once you see all of what Alympus has to offer, I think you’ll agree that there’s more than meets the eye. Read More
Well-known developer Majd Alfhaily just released a new beta tweak on his personal repo called Cyte. The tweak aims to clean up the descriptions for packages present in Cydia to make them look more consistent and appealing.
In my opinion, this is one of the biggest tweak opportunities present since Cydia opened up to Cydia Substrate extensions. A more consistent and cleaner looking Cydia when it comes to package depictions, would go a long way towards improving the experience. Read More
Alympus is a brand new tweak by developer iKyle, and designer Surenix. It’s been teased for the past week, but until today, we really had no idea what to expect. Would it be a new messaging tweak? A new theme? Or something else?
Today, we have a better idea of what Alympus entails. It seems to be an App Switcher replacement for iOS.
Surenix just posted a teaser Vine, which showed off some of the tweak’s upcoming functionality. Needless to say, it looks really good. Have a look and tell us what you think… Read More
One of the most difficult things that jailbreakers can do is put together a decent looking theme. Sure, all in one themes like Ayeris make it easy, but building a fully themed iPhone piece-by-piece is a little more challenging.
And then there’s the fact that there are so many type of themes. There’s SpringBoard themes, Lock screen themes, app-specific themes, etc. There’s really a lot to plan out and think about when it comes to successfully theming a jailbroken iPhone.
Well, a new theming solution is aiming to change this—at least when it comes to theming the Lock screen. LockPlus is a soon-to-be-released theming solution created by @JunesiPhone and based on Cydget. It allows you to create full Lock screen themes using a simple WYSIWYG web editor. Read More
The tweak in question, Lock Saver Free, is a tweak that we featured in our new tweaks of the week video last night. Lock Saver Free was published by developer dmarinov, and is unfortunately still available for download on ModMyi as of this post. Read More
