These past few weeks have been particularly interesting for the jailbreak community. Whether you’re waiting for a new jailbreak tool to officially drop or you’re following the intense security research aspect of things, it seems like there’s never a dull moment anymore.
In this roundup, we will discuss the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, August 10th to Sunday, August 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
Hazmat – FREE
Hazmat is a new and free jailbreak tweak that lets iPhone and iPad users apply custom masks to the album artwork for the Apple Music and Spotify Music apps. The tweak can also apply these masks to Now Playing widget artwork.
Indy – $1.49
Indy is a rather unique new jailbreak tweak that lets users tap on individual elements of the Status Bar for more detailed information.
With it, you can see detailed networking information with the cellular and Wi-Fi indicators, view the complete date with the time indicator, and see more detailed battery usage information with the battery indicator, among other things.
You can learn more about Indy and what it can do for you in our full review.
Selenium – FREE
Selenium is a new must-have tweak that lets users ‘snooze’ individual notifications for as long as they’d like.
After snoozing a notification, it’ll reappear in the same place after the designated time period is over. It’s a great way to get non-important notifications out of the way temporarily without clearing them entirely so that you can get back to them when you’re ready.
You can learn more about Selenium and how it works in our full review.
Sonic – $1.99
If you like custom ringtones and wish it was a lot easier to create and import them directly on your device, then you’ll love a new app called Sonic.
This app comes with tools for clipping sound bites out of audio tracks and importing them to your ringtone library to be used as ring or text tones. The same can be achieved with computer software, but this is a good on-the-go option with an intuitive user interface.
You can learn more about Sonic and how it works in our full review.
StorageByName – FREE
StorageByName is a new must-have jailbreak tweak that provides users with various ways to sort the app storage usage pane on their handset in any order they’d like.
If you’d rather sort by name or install date rather than by storage impact, then this tweak is for you. It can also sort using ascending or descending order.
You can learn more about StorageByName and why this is something Apple should have included out of the box in our full review.
