When it comes to jailbreaking and the many different tool options available, it’s inevitable that users will want to know which one(s) are the most stable, and the new Uptime jailbreak tweak by iOS developer MTAC can help.
Uptime is a free Control Center add-on that displays your jailbroken device’s current uptime in a dedicated widget that can be configured to appear as a 1×1 block or a 1×2 block, depending on your preference, as depicted in the screenshot examples above.
Not only is Uptime aesthetically pleasing to look at, but it shows your current uptime in days, hours, minutes, and seconds, allowing you to see more than just a general estimate. This lets you compare your user experience with other jailbreakers who might be using competing tools.
Your uptime is calculated based on how long your current jailbroken handset has been up and running since the last power cycle and reboot. Generally, a longer uptime indicates a higher stability, as it means you haven’t crashed or had an unexpected reboot. A dead battery can affect your uptime, as it can force a reboot and re-jailbreak, therefore making you lose your current progress.
Uptime is very similar in nature to a free jailbreak tweak called CCUptime that we showed you at the start of 2021, but full disclosure, Uptime looks leaps and bounds better from an aesthetic standpoint.
Once installed, users will need to navigate to Settings → Control Center and drag the System Uptime widget into the Enabled section to be used, as shown below:
We think Uptime is a slick widget that belongs in every jailbreaker’s Control Center interface, whether you’re comparing with others or simply viewing your uptime for your own record keeping and knowledge.
