In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, October 1st to Sunday, October 7th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases in detail and then outline the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
PremiumPlay – $1.99
Among said apps are several cable provider apps, which frequently block AirPlay streaming on purpose.
You can learn more about PremiumPlay and what it can do as well as its restrictions in our full review.
SnowBoard – FREE
WinterBoard was the most popular theming platform back in the day, but it hasn’t been updated for ages. Fortunately, SnowBoard is a new theming platform that picks up where WinterBoard left off.
SnowBoard is a particularly lightweight option that works with a host of different theme types from most of the largest theming platforms.
After installation, you can visit the preference pane in the Settings app to toggle themes on or off and you can double-tap on Home screen icons while in ‘jiggle’ mode to edit icon images on the fly.
You can learn more about SnowBoard and how it could supersede WinterBoard to become the next frontier in theming jailbroken handsets in our full review.
