Everything you need to know about tihmstar’s iOS 9.1-9.3.4 jailbreak untether

First things first: do not rush off and install this untether on your devices. It could easily boot loop them. This isn't a general warning to be ignored; the tool does not support most devices yet, and I will not be held responsible for any damage done by it.

Having said that, let's have a gander at this new release, the first jailbreak untether that we've seen in quite some time.

Fuzzy blurs the Lock screen background when you have notifications

iOS 10 changed how incoming notifications looked on the Lock screen by doing away with the background blur that appeared behind banners and adding those polarizing banner backgrounds.

If you miss the way the Lock screen wallpaper would always become blurred when receiving notifications, then you might be interested in trying a new free jailbreak tweak called Fuzzy by iOS developer candoizo.

This tweak forces Safari to load web pages in Reader or full screen mode

While browsing the web in Safari, two bars typically appear in the app: the navigation bar (top) and the toolbar (bottom). As you scroll through a page, on the other hand, the toolbar disappears and the navigation bar shrinks to conserve vertical space.

There are other modes you can use in Safari to complement the web browsing experience, such as full screen mode in landscape orientation and Reader mode in either orientation, but if you’ve ever wished Safari would just use either mode automatically for every page you visit, then you’re going to love using a new free jailbreak tweak called SafaReaderFullScroll by CydiaGeek.

How to restore your device to iOS 9.x with iDeviceReRestore

A while back we broke the story of a bug which was allowing restores to iOS 9 firmwares, without even needing a jailbreak. It was subsequently discovered that the bug was more far-reaching than originally thought, allowing restores to iOS 9.x from any firmware, not just from iOS 9.

The tool was released a week or so ago, and so we thought the time was right for a tutorial. Follow our instructions here to bring any 32-bit device back to any iOS 9.x firmware you have blobs for, from any starting firmware. No keys, bundles, nonces, or jailbreak required!
