The best iOS 14 jailbreak tweaks for emergencies

NetworkManager – $1.49

Select which cellular radio to connect with on your iPhone.

NetworkManager is a jailbreak tweak that permits the end user better control which cellular radio they’re using to connect to the internet through their carrier.

With it, you can manually choose between connections such as 4G LTE, 3G, and even 2G where still supported. This is leaps and bounds more helpful than being limited to selecting 5G or 4G LTE in the iPhone’s Settings app, and if for whatever reason your carrier’s network isn’t working properly on a specific radio type, then you can get yourself reconnected with a working one.

AdvancedBrightnessSlider – FREE

Incorporate iOS’ Reduce White Point feature into the Control Center brightness slider.

When you’re in a predicament where your surroundings are dark and your iPhone’s bright display could give your location away when you don’t want to be noticed, the AdvancedBrightnessSlider jailbreak tweak can help.

What this tweak essentially does is tap into the power of Reduce White Point by incorporating it directly into your Control Center display brightness adjustment. This allows you to continue using your iPhone even in dark environments where an overly-bright display might get you noticed when you don’t want to be, such as during emergencies.

Chusma – FREE

Notification when your iPhone’s location is being used to track you.

We live in strange times where it’s easier than ever to track people down with the very devices we use to communicate with one another, and some people use these capabilities for evil rather than good.

Chusma is a very handy jailbreak tweak that can alert you to when your device is being tracked, potentially without your permission. Not only can it help alert you to a potential stalker, but the knowledge that you’re being tracked could prevent a tragedy before it happens.

Your iPhone comes with a dedicated Compass app, but while we’re on the topic of using jailbreak tweaks to enhance your safety during emergencies, it becomes important to mention LiveSafari.

This jailbreak tweak turns your Home Screen’s Safari app icon into a functional compass that points north, allowing you to find your way should you ever find yourself lost in unfamiliar territory.
