An unforeseen surprise for the jailbreak community appears to be coming from the pipeline of tweak developer Ginsu this weekend.
Perhaps even more excitingly, all those jailbreak tweaks are now free – including those that were originally paid on the Havoc repository. Tweaks that were already free will continue to be free post-move.
Ginsu’s Tweets allude to the idea that the move from Havoc to his personal repository stems from comments made by Havoc about the developer’s frequency of package updates. Ginsu regularly updates several his packages, especially recently.
Older versions of the Ginsu’s tweaks will purportedly remain available on Havoc, as he claims there’s no way to delete them. Consequently, prospective downloaders of Ginsu’s tweaks will want to get the latest version(s) available, which can be had from Ginsu’s personal repository via the URL provided below:
As for what’s moving over to Ginsu’s personal repository, it seems the following packages are included:
- Acies – A redesigned Lock Screen
- Analog – Replaces the Lock Screen’s digital clock with an analog one
- AndroBar – Brings Android’s navigation bar to iOS
- DockLS – Brings the Home Screen’s Dock to the Lock Screen
- DockSearch – Lets users perform a web search from the Dock
- Dodo – Another redesigned Lock Screen
- DualClock 2 – Adds a second clock with another time zone to the Lock Screen
- Gradi – Provides a YouTube Music-inspired gradient to the Now Playing widget
- LockApps – An expandable app drawer for the Lock Screen
- NotchBanners – Gives notched devices notch-sized notification banners
