Whether you’re using the tried and true unc0ver jailbreak by Pwn20wnd or utilizing the newly-released Chimera jailbreak by the Electra Team, surely you’re hungry for some new jailbreak tweaks that might make your pwned handset even cooler?
In this roundup, we’ll summarize each of this week’s new releases from Monday, May 6th to Sunday, May 12th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites and then outline the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Copypasta – FREE
Copypasta is a beautiful new clipboard manager tweak for iOS that integrates your most recently-copied or cut items into a seamless running history interface for easier access later.
Copypasta is easily accessed when the keyboard is open with the help of a specialized grabber at the bottom of the interface. Upon opening it, you can access several of your most recent clipboard entries, labeled by the app they originated from. Tapping on something enters it into the text interface you’re currently in.
This seems like a premium tweak with a free price tag, and those interested in learning more about it should check out our full review.
Lisa – FREE
Lisa is a new free jailbreak tweak that redesigns the Lock screen-centric notification system in iOS to be more OLED display-friendly.
In addition to a truly black background, this tweak comes with behavioral customization options and animation options so that you can tailor your incoming notifications to your own personal needs. Not only will you appreciate this sleek new interface, but you might even save some battery while you’re at it.
The tweak also works on LCD displays, but the true black background is something that can only be genuinely appreciated on an OLED display such as what you’d find on an iPhone X, Xs, or Xs Max.
You can learn more about Lisa and where you can get it in our full review.
MiscSettings – FREE
Everyone loves a good all-in-one jailbreak tweak, and if you were ever a fan of Springtomize, then we have no reason to believe that you won’t appreciate a newer release called MiscSettings.
Not only is the tweak free of cost, but it comes with more than 50 useful options to customize your handset beyond its stock parameters, eliminating the need to install several one-off jailbreak tweaks.
Those interested in learning more about MiscSettings and what it can do are advised to check out our full review, where we go in-depth with all of its features.
SelectionPlus – FREE
SelectionPlus is a newly-released jailbreak tweak that replaces iOS’ native text-selection interface with a better one.
Rather than tapping on a tiny button to move left and right through an outdated select/copy/cut/paste menu, this tweak redesigns the menu with a vertically-scrollable window that you can customize to your liking.
You can learn more about SelectionPlus and how it works in our full review.
