Most people are getting accustomed to staying at home as much as possible due to COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we may not get bored once in a while. Fortunately, customizing your jailbroken handset is always a fun pastime that can help make staying at home more fun.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, April 13th to Sunday, April 19th. 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
Activator for iOS 13 – FREE
Ryan Petrich has officially released the first public beta of Activator for jailbroken iOS 13 devices, a milestone that brings this classic extension up to speed with the current jailbreak community.
While it doesn’t support A12/A13 devices as of yet, it does permit users of other handsets to perform actions with simple gestures. Moreover, it allows jailbreak tweaks of all kinds to take full advantage of these gestures.
You can learn more about the new version of Activator in our news post.
Ainsworth – $1.49
Ainsworth is a wonderful new jailbreak tweak that mimics the AirPods and Beats headset Bluetooth pairing experience for all your other accessories.
It works with Bluetooth and wired accessories alike, and it even takes things a step further with different interface options that are chock-full of shortcuts for controlling audio and visiting your favorite audio-centric apps.
You can learn more about Ainsworth and what it can do for you in our full review.
Aphrodite – FREE
Aphrodite is a powerful new asset catalog editor for the iOS platform that can be used to peer deep into the asset files of your apps and user interfaces.
The catalog editor lets you make changes to asset files, either by replacing, exporting, or modifying them, and adjusting handset aesthetics along the way. While currently in beta stages with limited functionality at this time, we have high hopes for what Aphrodite aims to provide.
You can learn more about Aphrodite and where you can go to try the public beta in our full review.
DockSpring – FREE
DockSpring is a simple utility that lets jailbreakers respring their iOS device by pulling up on the Home screen Dock.
The implementation is genius, complemented with gorgeous and quirky animations that will make you enjoy respringing again.
You can learn more about DockSpring and how it works in our full review.
DynaWall Lite – FREE
DynaWall Lite is a new free version of the popular DynaWall utility that lets users make their own Dynamic and Live wallpapers out of resources from their Photo Library or from online media hosts.
The tool comes in a paid version for $2.79 with all the features you could ever imagine, or a free Lite version that only supports making Dynamic wallpapers for dark and light mode on iOS 13.
You can learn more about DynaWall and DynaWall Lite and how they work in our full review.
Nougat – $1.99
Nougat is a gorgeously designed Notification Center replacement for jailbroken iPhones with a clear inspiration from Android Nougat and Oreo.
The tweak replaces the standard Notification Center interface with the one pictured above, integrating Now Playing widgets, toggles, and shortcuts with your missed notifications all in a single sleek package.

Veza – $1.99
Veza is a new jailbreak tweak that adds Control Center-esque toggles and shortcuts to the Lock screen so that you always have convenient controls at your fingertips.
The tweak incorporates a plethora of configuration options for achieving the aesthetics you want, and of course, you can customize what toggles or shortcuts appear to your liking.
