In addition to entering your preferred date formatting, you may toggle the tweak on or off on demand from the same preference pane. No respring is required for changes to take effect.
Those interested in giving the new DateFormatter jailbreak tweak a try can download it for free from the BigBoss repository via their favorite package manager app. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 14 devices and is open source on the developer’s GitHub page.
