When you’ve jailbroken your iPhone or iPad, it doesn’t take much for your mind to set off on a wild goose chase for the perfect jailbreak tweaks that will help your handset reach the zen mode it deserves.
Since we know many of our readers lead busy lives, we try to do our part to compile a weekly recap that pulls everything together; all this to ensure you don’t miss a beat!
In this week’s roundup, we’ll show you all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news spanning the week of Monday, January 24th to Sunday, January 30th. We’ll start with our favorite releases first and wrap everything else up afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Pastcuts – FREE
When you jailbreak your iPhone or iPad on iOS or iPadOS 13 or 14, you might find that some of your Shortcuts for iOS or iPadOS 15 won’t run on those devices.
Pastcuts is a free jailbreak tweak that forces Shortcuts that have been made on an iOS or iPadOS 15 device to run on iOS or iPadOS 13 & 14 devices. While this won’t work for all Shortcuts, it should work for most.
You can find out more about Pastcuts, including where you can get it from, in our full review post.
RelocateMe – $2.99
RelocateMe is a graphical user interface for the locsim Terminal extension that allows end users to spoof their current location or fake live routes with the tap of a button.
The locsim add-on uses private Apple APIs and doesn’t tap tweak injection, which should make it much harder for apps to recognize when you’re spoofing your location.
You can find out more about RelocateMe and how it works in our full review post.
Saily – FREE
Saily is the latest attempt to make a modernized APT-based package manager that can be installed alongside existing package manager apps such as Cydia, Installer, Sileo, or Zebra on jailbreaks running iOS or iPadOS 13 or later.
Saily offers a refreshingly new user interface and offers all the same core functions as your existing package manager app.
You can learn more about Saily and how it looks in our full review post.
Zetsu – FREE
The iPhone has always lacked an optimal multitasking experience, and while Apple has certainly tried to one-up the iPhone’s multitasking features on the iPad, even the iPad’s multitasking experience leaves a lot to be desired.
Zetsu is an interesting jailbreak tweak that brings windowed multitasking to supported iPhones and iPads, allowing you to partake in true desktop-class multitasking right on your mobile handset.
