Display Recorder gets updated with improved iOS 9 compatibility


Ryan Petrich has been on a roll as of late when it comes to updates to his most popular jailbreak releases. Not only has Activator received a monster update earlier today, but Display Recorder has received an update that makes it more compatible with iOS 9.

Display Recorder is a popular jailbreak app, because it allows you to capture your iPhone’s screen and showcase on screen taps so that viewers of the exported video will know where you’re tapping on screen. I’ve used Display Recorder for many years now, and in my opinion, it remains the best way to directly capture your iPhone’s screen on video.

You can expect the following changes to be present in Display Recorder 1.3.19:

  • Fix camera roll permissions error on iOS 9
  • Fix iFile integration on iOS 9
  • Fix tapper settings to applying immediately in some cases
  • Fix landscape recording resulting in cropped videos on iPad
  • Allow assigning an Activator action to launch the Display Recorder app

True, Display Recorder was already compatible with iOS 9 thanks to a previous update, but this update makes the app more stable when running the latest version of iOS on your jailbroken device.


All jailbroken users who are running Display Recorder right now are advised to take advantage of this free update. For those of you new to Display Recorder, the app is yours for only $4.99, which basically makes it a steal considering how useful it can be.
