Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Comet, Merriam, and more…

Got a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, but aren’t sure what to do next? This roundup will showcase all the latest jailbreak tweaks in an easy-to-digest list so that you can discern what your next install should be.

As always, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases first. Afterward, we’ll outline the rest of this past week’s releases in alphabetical order.

Our favorite releases this week

Comet – $1.99

Comet is a very sleek new jailbreak tweak that provides users with access to useful widgets from just about anywhere in iOS.

A quick glance reveals that the widget designs are largely inspired by those present in iOS 14, but with the convenience of being available everywhere as opposed to only on the Lock Screen.

You can learn more about Comet and the widgets it brings to the table in our full review.

Merriam – $0.98

Most people who think of all-in-one jailbreak tweaks snap to Springtomize as the default go-to, but it tends to be rather expensive, especially if you’re new to jailbreaking and aren’t looking to spend a lot of money.

Merriam is a brand-new all-in-one jailbreak tweak for under a dollar that aims to compete with tweaks like Springtomize. The feature set isn’t quite as diverse as what Springtomize brings to the table, but it’s a great place for new jailbreakers to start.
