This past week has been spicy for the jailbreak community, especially given the latest updates to the Taurine jailbreak tool for iOS 14.0-14.3 devices and the new versions of support packages that go along with it, such as Jailbreak Updater. Given just how much happened this past week, we wanted to circle back and provide it all to our readers in one convenient and easy-to-digest piece.
In more recent iterations Apple’s mobile operating systems, like iOS 13 and 14, the company attempted to incorporate support for third-party VoIP apps such as WhatsApp in the contact list to make reaching people who use those services even easier.
The concept sounds splendid on paper, but the execution appears to have been anything but. iOS developer 0xkujhappened upon a tweak bounty by Reddit user karm2308 requesting the removal of these botched options from the contact list, and a free jailbreak tweak dubbed Hide VOIP Suggestions was consequently conceived.
There are often times when we get asked, “do you know the Wi-Fi password for this place?” In many cases, we may have joined a secured Wi-Fi network and forgotten the password used to log in to it.
It’s been a bit noisier in the jailbreak community than usual this past week following the successful publicized update of Taurine v1.0.7 for iOS & iPadOS 14 with anti-bootloop mitigations and startup repair tools alongside a seriously upgraded Sileo package manager.
But amid everything that has changed in the jailbreak community this past week, one thing that hasn’t is the demand for a centralized place to digest everything new in one convenient place, and that’s what this jailbreak tweak and news roundup is all about.
At the end of 2019, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called Accent that could have been used to tint various facets of the iOS or iPadOS user interface.
It provided users with a pre-defined list of colors that users could pick from to accomplish this, and while the tweak worked fabulously, the list of colors was somewhat constrained. That’s why this new release is particularly exciting.
Hot off the heels of a significant update to Sileo this past week, the Sileo Team released a second minor subsequent update for the package manager app on Friday.
In case you missed it, the Sileo Team released a substantial update for the Sileo package manager this Thursday morning that brought it up to version 2.2 with a rather extensive change log. In addition to making Sileo compatible with all existing jailbreaks, the update also brought a significant number of new features, bug fixes, and improvements.
Thursday evening, the Sileo Team followed up with the larger and more significant update by launching a secondary smaller update. The latest version of Sileo is now version 2.2.1.
The Sileo Team unleashed a public beta build of Sileo version 2.2 with an extensive change log this past weekend. Given all the new features and improvements that this particular version of the popular package manager encompassed, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that it energized the user base.
Those who’ve been patiently waiting for an actual public release (as opposed to a public beta build) will be excited to learn that Sileo v2.2 is now available to the masses. The update should populate for existing Sileo users upon launching the app and refreshing installed sources.

Apple reserves iOS’ deep integration for noise cancellation and transparency mode to the company’s own headphone and headset offerings including the AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, and even the Beats Studio Buds. But these are far from the only headphone and headset offerings on the market that offer alike or similar features.
Despite the lull that the jailbreak community is experiencing amid anticipation for iOS & iPadOS 15 this Fall, we continue to see interesting new jailbreak tweak developments and jailbreak-centric news.
Many of those releases and news breaks happen when we’re distracted by our lives, and important tidbits can be easy to miss as a result. That’s the primary reason why iDownloadBlog curates these weekly recaps — it’s an effort to keep everyone on the same page despite all the chaos life brings.
