In this roundup, we’ll talk about every new jailbreak tweak released in Cydia throughout the past week. As usual, we’ll kick things off by showcasing our favorite releases and then wrap everything up by outlining the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
AVLock – FREE
AVLock is a simple, but useful jailbreak tweak for iOS 11 devices that puts a Rotation Lock-like toggle button to the stock video player interface.
As many time as you may accidentally rotate your device while laying down in bed, this tweak seems like something Apple should have implemented right out of the box. Furthermore, it’s so much more convenient than opening Control Center to use the stock Rotation Lock toggle.

BatteryBar – FREE
BatteryBar is a fun and quirky new battery level indicator for your jailbroken iPhone or iPad. As the name implies, it replaces the stock battery level icon in your Status Bar with a new display-spanning bar that changes color based on your battery level and Low Power Mode settings.
The tweak comes with a whole host of configuration options so that you can make it look how you want. Personally, I’m happy with how it looks right out of the box, but to each their own.
BatteryBar seems to be inspired by a recent /r/jailbreak concept request for the iPhone X, but unfortunately, it only works on notchless devices as of this writing. That said, a future update may bring support for the iPhone X at some point in the future.

RealCC – FREE
A significant pain point in iOS 11 encompasses the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi toggle buttons in Control Center because they don’t do what you think they should. On the other hand, a free jailbreak tweak called RealCC changes that.
If you haven’t heard, these toggles don’t turn these wireless radios off entirely. Instead, they merely disable specific features such that essential ones like AirDrop still work.
When you install RealCC, these toggle buttons will turn the corresponding wireless radio entirely off, which many argue should have been the stock functionality of the toggles in iOS 11 from the beginning. If you agree, then this tweak might be for you.
