Jailbreak tweaks of the week: BigSnooze, iBlockX, Tenmetsu, & more…

The jailbreak community is in a perpetual state of anticipation as we wait for the checkra1n team to expand support for newer devices and for recent exploit developments to be released such that other jailbreak teams may take advantage of them in their tools. That aside, jailbreak tweak releases continue, and that’s why this piece exists.

In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the latest jailbreak tweaks released between Monday, November 9th and Sunday, November 15th. As you might come to expect, we’ll start by discussing our favorite releases first and then we’ll wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward.

Our favorite releases this week

BigSnooze – $1.25

BigSnooze is a new jailbreak tweak that redesigns the iPhone’s alarm interface with full-screen buttons that more easily accessed in a sleepy or groggy state, as you very well might be when waking up for the first time in the morning.

In taking up the entire display, with each button taking up nearly half of the display, it becomes less frustrating to try and stop an annoying alarm from firing.

You can learn more about BigSnooze and how it works in our full review.

iBlockX – $1.99

Do Not Disturb is a useful component of iOS, but it isn’t quite as robust as some people would like. iBlockX is a newly released jailbreak tweak that extends on Do Not Disturb by allowing users to block calls and notifications from a variety of applications and contacts during user specified time-frames.

The tweak works with both preinstalled and third-party apps, but unlike Do Not Disturb, it offers fine-grained configurability that allows the user to have a lot more control over who and what can bug them during certain times of the day.

Tenmetsu – $0.89

Your iPhone’s rear-facing LED flash doubles as a flashlight when you find yourself in the dark, but the only way Apple allows you to articulate it is by turning it on or off or adjusting the lumen output intensity in steps.

Tenmetsu is a newly released jailbreak tweak that makes your iPhone’s rear-facing LED flash more like a professional flashlight. It adds features like SOS mode, strobe mode, and timer mode, each of which aren’t available out of the box on a stock handset.

Those interested in trying Tenmetsu should head over to our full review to learn more about it.
