With a new mobile operating system upon us and a recently teased iOS 14-centric security vulnerability, the wait has started to see if and when a new jailbreak tool will be made and released to liberate Apple’s device users from the company’s so-called ‘walled garden.’ That aside, those who are already jailbroken are surely wondering about the best ways to take advantage of their pwned handset, and that’s what this piece will be all about.
In this roundup, we’ll showcase all the latest jailbreak tweaks to be released from Monday, September 28th to Sunday, October 4th. As always, we’ll kick things off by showcasing our favorite tweaks first and then move on to an outline of all the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Bakgrunnr – FREE
Bakgrunnr is a must-have tweak for jailbroken iOS 13 devices that enables true application backgrounding.
Whether you’re fed up with Apple’s lame excuse for mobile multitasking, or you just wish your YouTube videos would continue playing in the background without paying for a subscription, this is the tweak for you.
You can learn more about Bakgrunnr in our full review.
Dove – FREE
All jailbreakers like a good all-in-one jailbreak tweak, unfortunately, many have only a few useful features and then a bunch of fluff to fill the gaps. Dove is different; at no charge whatsoever, it provides a bevy of useful options for customizing the iOS 13 user interface in various (useful) ways.
You can learn more about Dove and what you can do with it in our full review.
Puck – FREE
Given how modern jailbreaks are either semi-tethered or semi-untethered, it’s more important than ever to prevent powering down your pwned handset. Unfortunately, a dead battery essentially forces your handset to shut down.
With a new jailbreak tweak called Puck, you can designate a battery percentage that triggers an ultra-low power mode, also referred to as hibernation mode. In this mode, your handset will use substantially less power and help limp you along until you get can get to a charger.
You can learn more about Puck and how it works in our full review.
