Jailbreak tweaks of the week: GrabberInApps, YTCheckLocalNetwork, & more…

At iDownloadBlog, we continue to cover new jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news on a daily basis despite the annual pre-event lull. But life often keeps us so busy that keeping up with everything new proves to be a challenging endeavor.

That’s the chief reason why we make roundups like this one every Sunday. It provides an easy-to-digest recap of everything new from this past week so that you don’t miss anything relevant to your favorite iPhone-based hobby.

In this week’s roundup, we’ll pay particular attention to those jailbreak tweaks and jailbreak-oriented news tidbits announced or released between Monday, September 6th and Sunday, September 13th. As always, we’ll begin by discussing jailbreak tweaks and then wrap things up with an outline of other news toward the end.
