The jailbreak tweak release trickle effect continues as the community awaits a modern iOS & iPadOS 14-centric jailbreak for Apple’s latest devices, but theater hasn’t stopped some developers from launching notable releases for those already jailbroken.
In this roundup, we’ll go over all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak news from this past week, spanning Monday, December 4th to Sunday, December 10th.
As usual, we’ll kick things off by highlighting the best features of some of our favorite releases from this past week. Afterward, we’ll wrap things up with a roundup of everything else. So without further ado, let’s get started:
Our favorite releases this week
Eneko – FREE
Eneko is a tweak that hits close to home if you’re a veteran jailbreaker who enjoys UI customization on your iPhone or iPad.
In a nutshell, it allows users to have video wallpapers with or without sound for the Lock Screen, Home Screen, and Control Center interfaces.
You can learn more about Eneko and what you can do with it in our full review.
Little12 – FREE
If you have an older Home Button-equipped iPhone, then Little12 is a jailbreak tweak that can seriously upgrade its usability.
This tweak ports many of the best features and gestures from Apple’s newer iPhones and iPads to older iPhones, including the Home Bar, the floating Dock, side-by-side multitasking, and a plethora of other useful tidbits.
You can learn more about what this tweak brings to the table in our full review.
LottieLockscreen – FREE
LottieLockscreen is a new jailbreak tweak that brings fun and quirky Lottie-styled animations to the iPhone’s Lock Screen.
Just some of the things that the tweak animates are the time display and the Quick Action buttons. Best of all, the animations are configurable.
You can learn more about LottieLockscreen, what it can do, and where you can get it in our full review.
LottieStatusBar – FREE
Just like the tweak above, LottieStatusBar brings fun and quirky Lottie-styled animations to your iPhone, but to the Status Bar rather than the Lock Screen.
The tweak can be configured to animate various elements of the Status Bar, including but not limited to the battery indicator, the signal strength indicators, and the time display, among other things.
You can learn more about LottieStatusBar, what it’s capable of, and where to get it from in our full review.
TimerIcon – $0.99
TimerIcon is a simple jailbreak tweak that replaces the native Clock app icon with a timer progress ring whenever you have a timer active.
The ring moves in real time as the timer progresses toward its end, and a countdown appears in the center, giving you an idea of when the timer will fire.
You can learn more about TimerIcon in our full review.
