Jailbreakers have a bevy of different opinions when it comes to the best jailbreak tweaks for their particular device, but if there’s one thing most can agree on, it’s the fact that the freedom of jailbreaking offers a new level of thrill and excitement to any device it gets paired with.
In this roundup, we’ll be showcasing all the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, August 7th to Sunday, August 13th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorites first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
FullPlay – FREE
The Apple Music app gets an aesthetic makeover in iOS 14 that embraces a full-screen Now Playing interface and does away with the not-so-appealing layered card interface that most are familiar with in iOS 13.
If you have a jailbroken iOS 13 device and don’t plan on upgrading to iOS 14 this Fall, then you can use a new and free jailbreak tweak called FullPlay to have your cake and eat it too. With it, you can have the iOS 14-style Apple Music app’s Now Playing aesthetics on your pwned iOS 13 device.
You can learn more about FullPlay in our full review.
Grabbi – $1.19
There’s nothing quite like the inconvenience of having to open Notification Center just to see the time or your device’s current battery level while using a full-screen app, whether that encompasses a game or a full-screen video.
Grabbi is a new jailbreak tweak that integrates this pertinent information (and more) into the native Notification Center grabber via full-screen interfaces. With it, you can more easily view information without interrupting your user experience.
You can learn more about Grabbi and how it works in our full review.
Lisa – FREE
Lisa is a wonderful add-on for jailbroken iPhones that can help incoming notifications and Now Playing widgets stand out more on handsets equipped with OLED displays.
The tweak essentially brings the attention of your eyes to the banners and widgets themselves by hiding all the surrounding elements and replacing them with a deep black background that only an OLED display could produce. The tweak also works on non-OLED iPhones, but it won’t look quite as jaw-dropping.
