In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the new jailbreak tweaks released from September 17th to September 23rd. As always, we’ll start by reviewing our favorites and then outline the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Delimunator& Neblua – $2.00-$2.80
While there are tons of Dark Mode jailbreak tweaks out there, Deluminator and Nebula are some of the first to bring Dark Mode functionality to individual web pages that you visit in your favorite web browser(s).
These tweaks include different features at different price points, but ultimately achieve similar effects. If you hate the eye-jarring websites you visit while using Dark Mode tweaks, then these can compliment your experience quite nicely.
If you want to learn more about Deluminator and Nebula, then we recommend reading our in-depth review.
LendMyPhone – $3.99
LendMyPhone is a new take on adding “guest modes” to your iOS device. With it, you can set up a custom passcode for someone else to sign into your handset, and it will automatically limit access based on the settings you’ve configured.
LendMyPhone is perfect for friends and family, as it lets you hand your phone to others without worrying about privacy.

SmartVolumeControl2 – $1.99
iOS’ stock volume HUD is nothing short of atrocious, and SmartVolumeControl2 can help fix that.
After installation, you can theme your volume HUD with one of eight included themes. The tweak also lets you adjust the volume HUD behavior with interactive color schemes and haptic feedback, among other things.
