Malleus, Moonshine, TWPlus, and other jailbreak tweaks to try this weekend

Jailbreak Tweaks to check out

If you’re rocking a jailbroken iOS 11 device, then you’re undoubtedly looking for ways to modify it to your personal liking.

This roundup will encompass all the new jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, October 29th to Sunday, November 4th. 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

malleus – FREE

On the iPhone X and later, the latest versions of iOS 12, including iOS 12.1, play a sound when you use the 3D Touch-based Camera or Flashlight toggles on the Lock screen.

Malleus ports these sounds to jailbroken iOS 11 devices, and plays nicely with HomeGesture to bring these features to non-iPhone X handsets.

You can learn more about malleus and how to get it in our full review.

Moonshine – $1.99

Moonshine is a new jailbreak tweak that ports the Apple Watch‘s great semi-circular charge animation to the iPhone. Once connected, the display shows an Apple Watch-style Nightstand Mode as long as its connected to a power source.

We initially showed you Moonshine two weeks ago, but it’s officially out of beta as of this week, hence the honorable mention.

TWPlus integrates a plethora of new features into the official Twitter app, including a bevy of hidden settings and video downloading capabilities.

Once installed, you’ll find a truckload of internal settings for tweaking your Twitter app to your liking, and you’ll be able to download videos from both Direct Messages and from your News Feed.
