Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Hive Reborn, Linear, & more…

Progress is being made on an iOS & iPadOS 15 jailbreak, but it may be a while before one launches as the development process is a delicate procedure that requires attention to detail and vigorous testing.

Nevertheless, iDownloadBlog is happy to round up all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news breaks from this past week, even if it’s still for iOS & iPadOS 14.

In this roundup, we’ll go over everything new from Monday, April 4th to Sunday, April 10th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by showcasing our favorite stuff first and then outline everything else toward the end.

Our favorite releases this week

Hive Reborn – FREE

Hive Reborn is a free jailbreak tweak that revives the popular Hive add-on from 2019.

In a nutshell, it transforms the Lock Screen’s passcode entry interface so that the buttons resemble that of the tightly-packed hexagons in a beehive. It also comes with a unique unlocking animation and tons of color customization options.

You can find out more about Hive Reborn and how it works in our full review post.

Linear – FREE

Linear is a gorgeous theme for your Status Bar that transforms the cellular and Wi-Fi signal strength indicators, as well as the battery level indicator.

The theme works with most iPhones, and has just moved to the Chariz repository.

You can learn more about Linear and how to use it in our full review post.
