Most of you probably use a Wi-Fi network on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and some of them may even require a password to gain access to.
Have you ever been in a predicament where you’ve needed to use someone’s Wi-Fi network and they wouldn’t tell you the password for it to your face, but they had no problem typing it in for you so you could use the network without knowing what the password was? Or, have you just plain forgotten the password to one of your most-used networks when you have a new machine or device you want to use to connect to it?
If you’ve been in either of these situations, then a new jailbreak app called Wifi Passwords List, which is a free download from Cydia’s BigBoss repository, could be of use to you. It’ll show you the password of any secured Wi-Fi network you’ve ever used on your iOS device. Read More
In iOS, the Control Center and App Switcher interfaces are separate from one another and this means to get to one or another, you have to use a different gesture. It seems like some improvements could be made by merging the two interfaces into one, as we’ve seen with the popularity of previous jailbreak tweak releases such as Auxo 2 & 3.
A new jailbreak tweak called Zentrum is now available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $1.99 and it introduces users to an all-new omni-interface for multitasking, viewing music controls, and accessing system toggles & shortcuts, but it even bakes into the mix a quick app launcher, which you can configure to your liking.

Starting with iOS 7, Apple redesigned the Camera app and it got an all-new shutter animation. Some would argue it’s a little bit boring compared to the realistic camera shutter animation we had with iOS 6 and earlier.
Fortunately, anyone who’s feeling a little nostalgic now have a way to get it back by way of a new free jailbreak tweak in Cydia’s BigBoss repository called ClassicShutterAnimation. Read More
3D Touch is the flagship new feature of Apple’s iPhone 6s handset. It’s a part of the display that is capable of capturing forceful touches and performing actions based on how firmly you’re pressing, and Apple has done a great job creating a range of features throughout iOS that take advantage of this display technology.
But for those that feel iOS leaves a lot to be desired, the jailbreak community has come up with a variety of new uses for 3D Touch, whether your iPhone supports 3D Touch or not. And in this roundup, we’re going to show you a number of tweaks that we think really help compliment the 3D Touch experience on a jailbroken iPhone. Read More
Starting in iOS 9, Apple introduced Siri Suggestions in the updated Spotlight interface, which is accessed to the left of the first Home screen page.
Interestingly, despite the new Spotlight interface, Apple kept the original Spotlight interface that you can access by pulling down from the top of the screen, and as you might imagine, it doesn’t have all the new bells and whistles the new Spotlight interface does.
A new jailbreak tweak called NearbyNews is now available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $0.99 that will let you bring these features to the original Spotlight interface in iOS 9. Read More
Gravitation is a brand new tweak that adds gravity to your Home screen app icons. If you’ve been around jailbreaking for some time, then it may remind you of 2010’s Graviboard, by Conrad Kramer, now of Workflow fame. Activated by means of an Activator gesture or a shake of your iPhone, Gravitation adds fun to an otherwise mundane and regular iOS Home screen experience.
As expected, Gravitation, a $1.99 jailbreak tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, features several settings for adjusting the way the tweak looks and behaves. Watch our video demonstration to see how it works in action. Read More
Episode 145: The guys talk about the latest development in the jailbreak community, including the teasing of a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.3 beta. They then go on a brief discussion of the latest notable jailbreak tweaks to be released in Cydia. Finally, the show ends with what some might call sad news.
We haven’t seen a public jailbreak release for iOS since the Pangu 9 jailbreak for iOS 9.0-9.0.2, and as a result of the slowness in the jailbreak scene, many are either stuck without a jailbreak or are living without the latest features and performance/security improvements Apple brings to the table in current iOS releases.
But for those that are still hoping for another jailbreak to appear soon, iOS hacker qwertyoruiop has demonstrated that it is possible to jailbreak untethered iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, and 9.3 beta. Read More

3D Touch is one of the flagship features of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, allowing users to press firmly on various interfaces throughout iOS to reveal hidden menus with shortcuts to commonly-performed actions.
Despite iOS already having a variety of 3D Touch peek and pop menus, the jailbreak community is continuing to engineer interesting new uses for 3D Touch, such as this recent scale concept tweak, and it doesn’t stop there. A new jailbreak tweak called 3D Touch Notifications from Cydia’s BigBoss repository is about to change the way you interact with notifications on the Lock screen and in Notification Center using 3D Touch.

3D Touch gives iPhone 6s users tons of new features throughout the iOS operating system out of the box, but that’s not keeping the jailbreak community from coming up with incredible new uses for it.
Grams is an incredible new jailbreak tweak being made available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $0.99 that allows those with an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus to measure the weight of light objects by using the 3D Touch display right from Control Center, and in this piece, we’ll take you through a few of the details of how it’s able to accomplish this.

For quite a while, I didn’t have much of an interest in iOS themes. Many of the icon packs available in Cydia seemed rather mediocre and did little to improve on iOS’s stock design – at least, that’s how it appeared to me. Those that did look nice often don’t have a very large number of themed apps, while others had designs so different from the average iOS icon that unthemed apps stood out as ghastly reminders of a lack of design uniformity.
My ideal theme wouldn’t stray too far from the current state of iOS, would have several hundred themed icons, and would be simple and uniform enough to compliment my Home screen without making every app look the same and particularly without removing easily discernible colors and glyphs that make an app easy to spot from the rest so I can remain efficient when using my device. Because of these requirements, my ideal theme is undoubtedly Veexillum.
Take a moment to look at the Home screen on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad; what do you see? Some things that come to my mind are: stillness, simplicity, and boredom.
With a promising new jailbreak tweak release dubbed Fingal, which is now available as a free download in Cydia’s ModMyi repository, you can add a touch of motion and liveliness to your Home screen. Read More
