If you’re as excited about all the latest jailbreak tool updates as we are, then you’re probably looking for new add-ons and extensions that can boost the usability and augment the aesthetics of your pwned handset.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the latest jailbreak tweaks to be released from Monday, July 22nd to Sunday, July 28th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases and then wrap everything up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Iconator2 (iOS12) – $0.98
If you’re one to go nuts with customizing your handset’s appearance after jailbreaking it, then you’ll probably come to love a new jailbreak tweak called Iconator2.
This tweak lets you reformat and rearrange your handset’s Home screen icons however you like. It comes with various adjustment sliders to change the number of rows and columns you can have, and moreover, you can adjust the padding and spacing in between.

LiveSafari – FREE
I’ve always appreciated small and quirky jailbreak tweaks like Ryan Petrich’s famous LiveClock tweak that is now baked into any stock installation of iOS, and for that reason, it should come as no surprise that you’re seeing LiveSafari on this list.
LiveSafari animates the compass-centric icon that represents Safari on the Home screen such that the needle always points North. The tweak does use your location for short bursts to make this happen, but it seems to be fairly battery-friendly.

Pusher – $2.49
Even if you have an iPhone, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a Mac and an iPad. If you’re using a Windows PC or an Android tablet, then you’re totally missing out on the unified push notification experience that you’d otherwise receive on an iPhone/Mac ecosystem.
Or are you? With a new jailbreak tweak called Pusher, you can experience mobile push notifications even on your Windows or Android devices. The tweak uses third party push services to make this possible, and it’s particularly in-depth as far as customizing notifications is concerned.
