Reddit reveals it suffered a security breach in June

On Wednesday, Reddit reported a hacker had broken into a few of its systems and managed to access some limited user data, including current email addresses and a 2007 backup that contained old "salted and hashed" passwords. The incident, described as a "serious attack," happened between June 14 and June 18. Thankfully, the attacker didn't gain write access on Reddit systems. Instead, they gained read-only access to some systems that contained backup data, source code, and other logs. 

Saurik’s latest Reddit comment discusses Electra, Cydia, and Mobile Substrate

With everything that’s going on lately in the jailbreak community as of late, it’d be an understatement to say that people want to know what’s happening with Saurik and the iOS 11 update for Cydia and Mobile Substrate that he talked about on Reddit several weeks ago.

Following the Electra 1.0 public release this week, Saurik took to Reddit once again to discuss CoolStar's jailbreak tool and his progress on updating Cydia and Mobile Substrate for iOS 11. As usual, the comment is rather long, so bear with us…

Cast your vote in the second round of the 2017 Jailbreak Awards

If you didn’t already cast your votes in the first round of the 2017 Jailbreak Awards, then here’s your second chance. The second round of the 2017 Jailbreak Awards is now open, and polling has officially started.

Don’t forget to vote in the 2017 Jailbreak Awards

Anyone can participate in this poll, whether they’re a jailbreak user, developer, hacker, etc.

Drago brings detailed karma statistics to the Apollo Reddit client

If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, then you’ve probably heard all about the shiny new Apollo Reddit client for the iOS platform. Designed with love by a former Apple employee, it's almost everything an iOS user could ask for in a Reddit app.

While Apollo is indubitably stunning at first glance, jailbreak developers are already finding ways to enhance the app. Drago, by iOS developer rob311, is the latest of this bloodline of jailbreak tweaks with its sights set on making Apollo even better.

This tweak hides features in the Apollo Reddit client that don’t work on jailbroken devices

A plethora of Redditors are already content with the new Apollo client released earlier this week, but jailbreakers are learning that not every feature included in the app works on their devices because some require iOS 10.3 or later.

If you find yourself in this predicament, then you might want to try a new free jailbreak tweak called ApolloJustCompatible by iOS developer Squ1dd13, as it hides those features on devices that run earlier versions of iOS.

Apollo is a fantastic new Reddit client developed by a former Apple employee

Reddit users rejoice! Apollo is an astonishing new third-party client for iPhone and iPad developed by a former Apple engineer, and when you launch the app for the first time, you’ll recognize why we didn’t even have to tell you that.

The attention to detail in Apollo is stunning. Right down to the smallest details in the app’s user interface, Apollo meshes so well with the native iOS 11 user experience that you’d think Apple themselves made this app to ship with iOS 11 out of the box.

Reddit Enhanced is a tweak that lets you customize the official Reddit app

If you frequently use Reddit, then chances are you have the Reddit app on your iPhone or iPad for ease of access. While it’s useful for perusing the boards, it does have its shortcomings.

To get around many of the shortcomings, a new free jailbreak tweak called Reddit Enhanced by iOS developer Tom Effects offers a bevy of new options that let you fine-tune the Reddit app to better fit your personal needs.

This tweak helps you differentiate comments in the official Reddit app

In the official Reddit app for iOS, gray vertical lines of varying heights appear between comments underneath posts. They’re intended to help lead the eyes, making it easier to differentiate between responses, but the gray isn't exactly easy for everyone to see.

A new free jailbreak tweak called ColorComments by Ben Giannis lets you add a splash of color to those lines, not only for improving the efficiency of how your eyes distinguish between each one, but also making the app look more unique in the process.

AntennaGIFDL lets you download GIFs from the Antenna Reddit client app

If you prefer the Antenna Reddit client over the default app from the service itself, then you’re probably familiar with the fact that it lacks a way to download animated GIF images when viewing them from the app.

A new free jailbreak tweak called AntennaGIFDL fixes that by building in a way to download animated GIF images from the Antenna app straight to your device’s Camera Roll.
