In this piece, we’ll discuss all the latest jailbreak tweaks from this past week spanning Monday, April 26th to Sunday, May 2nd.

Our favorite releases this week
Mochi – FREE
The Lock Screen’s Now Playing interface is rather bland out of the box, and Mochi is a free jailbreak tweak that aims to fix that.
Mochi gives the Now Playing interface a proper resizing and makes it look nicer with a spinning album artwork animation and proportionately sized controls.
You can learn more about Mochi and where to get it in our full review.
ProKeys – $1.99
ProKeys is an entirely new one-stop-shop jailbreak tweak for personalizing your pwned iPhone’s keyboard experience.
The tweak is packed with options including haptic feedback, animations, and custom colorization, among other things.
