Many people just got their shiny new iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max in hand this past week, but for those sticking with jailbreakable handsets following the launch of the new checkm8 bootrom exploit, this post is for you.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the latest jailbreak tweaks to be released from Monday, September 23rd to Sunday, September 29th. As always, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorites first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
ChargingBubbles – $0.98
ChargingBubbles is a fun and quirky jailbreak tweak that gives your iPhone a new charging animation.
Upon plugging your handset into a power source, the tweak displays animated bubbles near the bottom of the screen, right next to the Lightning port. For reference, check out the animated GIF above.
You can learn more about ChargingBubbles in our full review.
KillX Pro – $0.99
KillX Pro adds a new button to the bottom of the App Switcher interface to kill all running apps in one fell swoop.
The tweak effectively makes it to where you don’t need to swipe up individually on each and every app card to close all your suspended apps.

Peekable – FREE
Apple limits Peek and Pop functionality to handsets that support 3D Touch or Haptic Touch, but with a new jailbreak tweak called Peekable, you can port those Peek and Pop features to your unsupported handset.
You can learn more about how Peekable works in our full review.
Vigor 2 – $0.99
Vigor 2 makes your Home Screen come alive by replacing many of the static icons with dynamic widgets.
The supported widgets display useful information regarding what’s happening inside the respective app.
