It seems like there’ve been a lot of intriguing jailbreak tweak releases recently amid the calm of jailbreak development.
That said, we’re here again this Sunday morning with a detailed recap of everything that’s new in the jailbreak community, including tweak releases and recent developments, just to ensure you don’t miss a beat.
In this roundup, we’ll go over all the latest tidbits published between Monday, May 10th and Sunday, May 16th. As usual, we’ll kick things off with by showcasing our favorite releases first and then outline everything else in an easy-to-digest fashion afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Hinata – FREE
Hinata is a new and free jailbreak tweak that gives any jailbroken iPhone a Samsung Galaxy-inspired Lock Screen aesthetic.
You can learn more about Hinata and where you can get it from in our full review.
Kumquat – FREE
Kumquat is a new and free jailbreak tweak that allows jailbreakers to customize their Now Playing widget and access more features from the Control Center Now Playing module.
Whether you like a small, medium, or large Now Playing interface, or prefer certain elements to appear on it instead of others, you can find your ideal setup with this tweak.
You can learn more about what Kumquat is capable of in our full review.
Sleepizy 2 – $1.99
One of the things you can do with your iPhone is set a timer with music playback so that you can fall asleep to your music. After the timer runs out, the music stops.
If you’re interested in more control over how you fall asleep to music, then Sleepizy 2 is a great place to start. The tweak can go by number of tracks instead of a timer or cause things to happen when the playback ends that wouldn’t typically be possible on a stock handset.
You can learn more about Sleepizy 2 and what it brings to the table in our full review.
Vinculum 2 – $0.99
Last on our favorite tweaks this week list is Vinculum 2, which offers a slick new way to access the App Library on iOS 14 devices.
With it, you can swipe up on the Home Screen’s Dock instead of swiping to the right of the Home Screen. It’s a slightly nicer user experience in my opinion, especially if you’re accustomed to using Android’s app drawer feature.
