There have been unrivaled amounts of excitement throughout the jailbreak community this week in response to all the hubbub surrounding the Electra Team’s progress on bringing iOS 11.3.1 support to the Electra jailbreak tool. And that’s great for tweak developers.
So with that in mind, we’ll be talking about all the best jailbreak tweaks released this week in this roundup. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorites and then outline the rest of them afterward.
Our favorite release this week
PearlRetry – FREE
If you, like many other iPhone X users, wish that your handset would automatically try another facial recognition scan after a failed attempt, then you might like a new jailbreak tweak called PearlRetry.
This tweak eliminates the steps you’d normally need to take to retry a Face ID unlock attempt. Moreover, you can configure a custom delay for how long after a failed unlock attempt that your iPhone X will attempt to recognize your face again.
You can learn more about PearlRetry and why it’s a great add-on for jailbroken iPhone X handsets in our full review.
