Tweaks of the week: AppColorBadges, tweakCompatible, and more

There’s been a lot going on behind the scenes in the jailbreak community recently. With the release of both the H3lix and LiberiOS jailbreaks and the confirmation that Saurik would update Cydia for iOS 11, it seems like we might see another season of jailbreaking after all.

In this meantime, this post serves to provide a brief summary of all the new jailbreak tweaks released throughout the past week. As usual, we’ll begin by showcasing our favorite releases and then outline the rest afterward.

Without further ado, let’s get started…

Our favorite releases this week

AppColorBadges – FREE

AppColorBadges is a new free jailbreak tweak that colorizes your icon badges so that they match the icon they represent. For example, Twitter badges appear blue, and Messages badges appear green.

The tweak brings a subtler style to your badges when compared to the stock, eye-jarring red badges on a stock device. While it looks nicer in some respects, it can also make your badges blend in with your icons, which sometimes makes them more challenging to notice at a glance.

You can learn more about AppColorBadges and what the tweak can do for you in our full review.

tweakCompatible – FREE

With all the packages available in Cydia today, both new and old, it’s not always easy to discern which ones will work with your version of iOS.

tweakCompatible is a new free jailbreak tweak that aims to help with this problem. It utilizes crowd-sourced data to let you check whether any tweak in Cydia will work on your device.

Users can also report any package as either working or not working, and the tweak logs that response into an online database for others to use.
