The jailbreak community has been a bit slower than usual lately, but that’s not to say things have gone stale. Great projects are under development that haven’t been released just yet. Without spoiling those, however, we’ll talk first about those that have been released already.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all of the jailbreak tweaks that were released throughout the past work week, starting with our favorites and finishing up with the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
ControlCenterXI – $1.50
ControlCenterXI is a fabulous new release that brings an iOS 11-inspired Control Center UI to jailbroken iOS 10 devices.
Complete with the full modular look and feel, and 3D Touch support, the tweak lets you access everything the same way you would on iOS 11. You can expand or close any of the modules that would typically take up the full screen, such as the music player and the brightness/volume sliders.
The tweak is part of the Eleven jailbreak tweak suite that brings a host of iOS 11 features to jailbroken iOS 10 devices, so if you want to have the iOS 11 look and feel without upgrading and losing your jailbreak this Fall, this is definitely something to consider.
You can read our full review of ControlCenterXI to learn more about it and how it works.
GIFRoll – FREE
Why wait for iOS 11 to have GIF support in the Photos app when you don’t have to? A jailbreak tweak called GIFRoll adds native support for GIF images so you can watch them spring to life with a tap.
There’s not much to say about this tweak except that I think it’s a must-have, especially since GIF images are the way of the future. The tweak is free, so fortunately, you won’t have to shell out any dime to install it.
