With all the exciting developments happening in the jailbreak community lately, from checkra1n receiving Linux support to the unc0ver jailbreak being on the cusp of implementing A12X-A13 support on iOS 13.3, it’s never been a better time to be a jailbreaker.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, February 10th to Sunday, February 16th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Aerial 2 – $1.99
For those who want more from their Status Bar in terms of aesthetics, a jailbreak tweak called Aerial 2 lets you colorize each of the Status Bar’s icons and indicators.
Aerial 2 is a long-time favorite of ours, and it just recently received support for iOS 13. The tweak works just as well as the original and helps your jailbroken handset stand out from the crowd.

Appaze 2 – $1.99
For those people out there who like certain system settings to be applied to particular applications, such as max brightness in YouTube or Rotation Lock in Safari, you might want to try a new jailbreak tweak called Appaze 2.
Appaze 2 works by letting you configure up to 17 different system settings on a per-app basis, which is particularly useful for habitual settings changers who want the most out of their apps.

Castmary – FREE
The iPhone’s App Switcher is, without a doubt, a functional interface for getting to recently-used apps and closing backgrounded apps. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t look as good as it does on the iPad.
Castmary is a new and free jailbreak tweak that brings the iPad-style grid App Switcher to the iPhone. With a 4×4 app grid, you can see more at a glance and multitask better than before.

VolumeLock – FREE
If you have a preferred volume level for listening to media, be it a song or a video, then you might in for a surprise when your volume level suddenly blasts your eardrums from that one time you tried listening to something in a loud crowd.
VolumeLock is a new and free jailbreak tweak that lets you lock your current volume level with a simple gesture. With it, you can ensure that accidental volume adjustments won’t damage your hearing, and it’s just an overall nice addition to your iPhone’s volume functionality.
