Havoc repository announced that supported icon count will be added to theme depiction pages.

The Havoc repository announced this week a subtle change for themes hosted there that will make it easier for users to ascertain whether certain paid themes are worth the price.

The change includes a new icon counter that displays front and center so that users will know if the theme supports enough of their app icons before purchasing.

You can learn more about this change in our full news post.

OTADisabler gets rootless support

Notice how OTADisabler tricks the Settings app into displaying that my iOS 15.1 installation is the latest version.

Ichitaso has updated the OTADisabler jailbreak tweak to support rootless jailbreaks such as the Dopamine tool for A12-A15 devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-15.4.1 and the palera1n-c tool for A9-A11 devices running iOS & iPadOS 15.0-16.x.

This utility effectively blocks software updates from appearing in the Settings app after you’ve jailbroken. It prevents updates from displaying notification badges on the Settings app and displays your current version as the latest available to prevent automatic or accidental updates that would result in the loss of your jailbreak.

Eliza battery level colors.

The Eliza jailbreak tweak that applies a color-based gradient to your Status Bar’s battery level indicator based on your current battery level percentage, has been updated to support the rootless Dopamine and palera1n-c jailbreaks.

This color effect change happens very gradually and also applies to other facets of your iPhone’s battery readout, such as personal hotspots and the battery widget on your Home Screen.
