While some jailbreakers-to-be continue to wait for a jailbreak solution that works on newer firmware, those lucky enough to already have a pwned handset are wondering what they can do to modify their device outside of Apple’s stock parameters.
At iDownloadBlog, we come at you every weekend with a roundup just like this one, which summarizes everything that you may have missed throughout the busy work week.
In this piece, we’ll showcase all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news released between Monday, July 26th and Sunday, August 1st. As usual, we’ll showcase our favorite stuff and then outline everything else afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
BeatsStudioBudsControl – FREE
If you have a paid of Beats Studio Buds, then you won’t be able to control listening modes (Transparency and Noise Cancellation) via Control avenger without running iOS 14.6 or newer.
This appears to be a software limitation on Apple’s behalf, and if you’re jailbroken on a version older than 14.6, it’s a bit of a buzzkill. That’s why the new BeatsStudioBudsControl tweak is a godsend, as it unlocks this functionality on older iOS 14 releases.
You can learn more about BeatsStudioBudsControl in our full review post.
YouTube Premium Plus – FREE
For those YouTube users who demand more personalization of the YouTube app, YouTube Premium Plus offers all the customization options you could ever need.
From hiding and showing certain app elements to changing the app’s behavior, it offers a little bit of something for everyone.
You can learn what YouTube Premium Plus is all about in our full review post.

iOS & iPadOS 14.6 unsigned: Apple has stopped signing iOS & iPadOS 14.6, which hinders most downgrades from the newer iOS & iPadOS 14.7 & 14.7.1 firmwares.
