Jailbreak Tweaks to check out

These are some exciting times for the jailbreak community. With two jailbreak tools now available for iOS 11, including Electra and unc0ver, the possibilities are endless. But if you’re trying to discern how you should spice up your new jailbreak, then we’ve got some ideas for you.

This roundup will encompass all the new jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, October 22nd to Sunday, October 28th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases and then outline the rest of them afterward.

Our favorite releases this week

BatteryColor – FREE

BatteryColor is an intelligent new jailbreak tweak that dynamically colorizes the Status Bar‘s battery level indicator with a gradient depending on the remaining battery percentage.

At full charge, the battery level indicator appears green; it slowly transitions from green, to yellow, to red, throughout the discharge cycle.

You can learn more about BatteryColor and why it’s a great tweak in our full review.

NFCWriter X for iOS – $3.99

Whether you’re a hobbyist or a tinkerer, anyone with a ton of available NFC devices laying around can use NFCWriter X for iOS to fiddle around with their internal settings.

NFCWriterX for iOS goes beyond Apple’s stock NFC framework to unlock the full potential of your iPhone’s NFC radio. With it, you can read information from NFC devices, write to them, and so much more.
