It shouldn’t be too much longer before the public gets a proper jailbreak on iOS 11, but in the meantime, developers continue to release jailbreak tweaks for iOS 10 devices that have been pwned with Yalu or G0blin.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the new tweaks released throughout the past week. As always, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites and wrap things up by outlining the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
PersonalEcate – FREE
PersonalEcate is a fun and quirky release that lets you customize the charging text from your iPhone’s Lock screen.
You can replace the text string with anything you want, including Emojis. The most obvious reasons to use this tweak is to apply funny messages that add character to your device.
You can learn more about PersonalEcate and how to use it in our full review post.
RocketScience – FREE
RocketScience is a tiny tweak for iOS, but after using it for about a week, I’ve learned just how necessary it is for consistency.
The tweak adds both an icon and label above the App Switcher’s Home Screen card so it matches the aesthetic of all recently-used apps that you would typically swipe through.
We know, first world problems, but seriously… give it a try.

SB3DTouchColor – FREE
SB3DTouchColor is a simple tweak that colorizes your Quick Action menus to match the dominant color of their respective app.
Anyone who uses these menus frequently to access app shortcuts will enjoy the extra splash of color that the tweak has to offer. Even if you don’t like having the automatic color picker enabled, you can configure a static color option of your own that appears for every app.
