Despite Cydia’s dry spell, which is due to the lack of a jailbreak on the latest iOS firmware, jailbreakers are remaining diligent and Cydia continues to kick with new releases.

If you have an iOS device, then you already know one of the main features is the Messages app. On iPhone, it serves as an iMessage and SMS platform; on iPod touch and iPad, it serves as an iMessage platform only. Nevertheless, you can even use your iCloud account to sync your SMS messages with all your devices across the board.
Despite how useful it is to be able to message anyone on demand from any of these devices, jailbreaking has opened many doors for incredible functionality for the Messages app that Apple has yet to implement in iOS in its stock form.
In this roundup, we’ll be showing you some of our favorite jailbreak tweaks for iOS 9 that enhance the messaging experience in Apple’s mobile operating system. Read More

In this post, we’ll show you how to install nitoTV on your jailbroken Apple TV. Read More
The Apple TV 4 has a completely new operating system called tvOS, which sits right alongside OS X, iOS, and watchOS in Apple’s operating systems.
One of the nice parts about tvOS is the design of the alerts and notifications. In fact, iOS developer Robin Vekety (@Integeritis) thought it would be a cool idea to port the new alert style over to the iOS experience for those with jailbroken devices. Read More
Looking for a new minimalist take on the Lock screen clock for your iOS device? If so, then a new jailbreak tweak called miniTime might be worth stopping to take a look at.

Typically, on any black-colored iOS device, the respring or reboot screen is going to be black with a white Apple logo; and conversely, any white-colored iOS device will have a white respring or reboot screen with a black Apple logo.
Although some people may like the small variance Apple has given their devices, others may like to have the option to switch it up for themselves.
For those people, a new jailbreak tweak called InvertRespring will invert the respring and reboot screen’s background and Apple logo colors to their opposites, and is now available for free in Cydia. Read More

Following up on their promise, the Pangu Team has now released a jailbreak for the fourth-generation Apple TV. The tool can be downloaded from our Downloads page and instructions on how to use it will soon be available on iDB.
It must be noted that this jailbreak tool comes with strings attached. As the Pangu Team had warned, this jailbreak is more geared towards security researchers and developers. End users will see no real value in this jailbreak, at least for the time being. Read More
Control Center is one of the more useful parts of iOS where you can easily toggle on or off some of your most important features, and where you can access shortcuts to your device’s most useful utilitarian apps.
Unfortunately, Apple wasn’t thinking three-dimensionally when they launched the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and as a result, Control Center doesn’t take advantage of the 3D Touch display. That’s where a new jailbreak tweak release called QuickCenter, which can be had from Cydia for $0.99, comes to the rescue. Read More
After last week’s launch of an untethered jailbreak for iOS 9.1 by the Pangu jailbreak team, which couldn’t be extended to iOS 9.2 and later because the exploits were closed already, some more people have been given the chance to upgrade to a jailbroken device.
As a result, we’re happy to make a roundup of all the jailbreak tweaks released this week so everyone can get up to speed with this week’s releases in a simple-to-follow list. First, we’ll show you our favorites this week, then we’ll go into all the rest. Read More
