It’s been a crazy a week with all these jailbreak tool updates and what not, but if you’ve been keeping up with it all and you’re interested in tweaking your pwned handset, then you’re in the right place.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the latest jailbreak tweaks to be released from Monday, July 29th to Sunday, August 4th. 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
AwesomePageDots – FREE
Want to make your Home screen’s page dots more interesting? If so, then give a new jailbreak tweak called AwesomePageDots a try.
This tweak changes the page dots animation to make it more aesthetically-pleasing. Best of all, it seems to work on all devices.
You can learn more about AwesomePageDots and where to get it in our full review.
QuickCC – FREE
QuickCC is a brilliant jailbreak tweak for Control Center that makes the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi toggles significantly more useful.
Upon using a pressure-sensitive gesture on either, you’ll be able to view nearby devices and connect with them without having to open the Settings app.
If you don’t want to wait for iOS 13 to have this feature and you’re jailbroken, then head over to our full review to learn more.
StickAround – FREE
If you’re anything like me, then you probably use specific preference panes in the Settings app more than others. Unfortunately, navigating the Settings app is sometimes a lot like navigating one of those maze games.
StickAround is a newly-released jailbreak tweak that lets you pin your favorite preference panes to the top of the Settings app. With it, you can spend less time looking for options and more time setting them.
You can learn more about StickAround and how it works in our full review.
