The jailbreak community continues to be the spawning ground of unique ideas for modifying stock iOS in the form of jailbreak tweaks. But a busy life can make keeping tabs on everything a challenge.
Fortunately, iDownloadBlog has your back. We come at you every weekend with a dedicated roundup just like this one where we showcase all our favorite jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news.
In this piece, we’ll go over everything spanning the week of Monday, July 19th to Sunday, July 25th. As usual, we’ll kick things off with a detailed analysis of our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward. So without further ado, let’s get started!
Our favorite releases this week
EarphoneReminder – FREE
It can be particularly irking when you tap on the play button in your favorite music or video streaming app and then the volume from your iPhone’s built-in speaker suddenly begins blaring at full volume. Not only is it embarrassing, but it’s unnecessary.
EarphoneReminder is a simple tweak that can save you this embarrassment by reminding you to connect a pair of headphones before that audio begins playing, and based on preliminary criteria.
You can learn everything you need to know about EarphoneReminder in our full review post.
IAmSpeed – FREE
Whether you’re switching from one jailbreak to another or you’ve chosen to wipe your device clean and start from scratch, IAmSpeed is a useful utility that can be used to generate a backup of all your installed jailbreak tweaks to be restored from later on.
IAmSpeed differs from IAmLazy in that it’s more of an internet-dependent option.
You can learn all about IAmSpeed and how it works in our full review post.
Lucient – $2.00
If you’re in the market for an Android 12-inspired Lock Screen on your iPhone, then the new Lucient jaikbreak tweak is a great place to look.
With its Large time display and emphasis on the date, reminder events, and weather conditions, it’s a great complement to the notification banners that normally build up on your Lock Screen throughout the day.
