It’s a great time to be a jailbreaker, especially since there’s the checkra1n jailbreak can’t be patched and there are several other exploits looming in the wild for newer devices.
In this piece, we’ll discuss all the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, January 27th to Sunday February 2nd. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
AutoScroll – $1.50
If you’re ever reading a lengthy web page or eBook, then you might experience something called finger fatigue where you simply get tired of scrolling.
A jailbreak tweak called AutoScroll solves this problem by implementing automatic scrolling into iOS. After beginning to scroll, your handset will continuously scroll at the same speed you scrolled. With three different speed settings, you can comfortably use this tweak as you need for any purpose you can think of.

Carbonite – $1.29
To many, the empty space in the Reachability interface seems like a complete and utter waste. That’s why a new jailbreak tweak called Carbonite sought to change that.
Once installed, Carbonite fills the empty area in the Reachability interface with useful toggles and shortcuts, making it easy to access controls that would otherwise be buried in iOS.

Fisting – FREE
The Camera app is one of the most vital apps on your entire iPhone, and with the iPhone sporting one of the world’s greatest point-and-shoot cameras, it’s easy to see why.
If you find yourself struggling to get to the Camera app quickly when you need it, then a new jailbreak tweak called Fisting could help you out. It lets you use a ‘shake’ gesture from anywhere in iOS to get to your Camera interface quickly in a pinch.
