Jailbreak tweaks of the week: ChatUI, DrainCheck, Orion, & more…

It’s that time of the week again, and that means we’re coming at you with the latest edition of the Jailbreak Tweaks of the Week.

In this piece, we curate a list of all the latest jailbreak tweaks and jailbreak-centric need in one convenient and easy-to-digest piece. This particular roundup covers the time period spanning Monday, April 19th to Sunday, April 25th.

As usual, we’ll kick things off by showcasing our favorite releases first, and then we’ll wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Our favorite releases this week


With a new and free jailbreak tweak called ChatUI, jailbreakers are imbued with the ability to customize the appearance of their Messages app when using either iMessage or SMS to send messages.

The tweak offers colorization, gradients, message bubble customization, and a bevy of other options to make the app look how you want.

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

DrainCheck – FREE

DrainCheck is a really cool and free jailbreak tweak that harnesses the power of Do Not Disturb mode on your iPhone or iPad to discern how much of your battery drains over a period of time.

For example, when Do Not Disturb turns on during scheduled hours overnight, this tweak monitors your device’s battery drain and displays a full report in the morning when you turn Do Not Disturb mode back off.

DustBuster – FREE

DustBuster is an app for jailbroken iPhones and iPads that can help the user reclaim used storage space by removing unnecessary temporary files and app caches.

The app works with the tap of a button, mitigating effort for the end user and ensuring that you always get the most out of your storage even if it’s a small amount.

Orion – $3.99

Orion is the most comprehensive all-in-one jailbreak tweak we’ve ever featured on iDownloadBlog. Period.

It provides the user with so many ways to customize their handset from top to bottom that they won’t need to install a bevy of smaller tweaks to achieve the same result.
