There are several jailbreak tweaks available for password protecting individual apps and other areas of an iOS device, but Asphaleia takes security one step further with Touch ID. The tweak can be used to secure apps on a one-by-one basis, with a number of options to configure through the Settings app… (more…)
TheiPhoneThemeTeam has posted a new video to YouTube that highlights several of the benefits that can be gained through jailbreaking an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on iOS 7. The 30-second spot mentions a number of popular jailbreak tweaks, including Activator, JellyLock, Cylinder, MiniPlayer, NoteCreator, Alkaline, Winterboard, Messages+ and BioLockdown.
This video most closely resembles one we shared a few years ago, which featured 100 reasons to jailbreak your device. That video was prepared by Jailbreak Matrix, and highlighted a number of popular iOS tweaks and extensions in a similar fashion as this latest ad.
What do you think of this new video?
It’s not often that I stumble across a tweak that I think is going to make waves in the jailbreak community. But that happened today, and the tweak is called ProWidgets. It comes from well-known jailbreak developer Alan Yip, creator of StatusHUD 2 and AltKeyboard – and now ProWidgets. (more…)
Apple is no longer signing anything below iOS 7.1 for current-generation devices, and you know what that means: You’re stuck on iOS 7.0.x if you want to keep your jailbreak. If you update to iOS 7.1, there’s no going back – at least not any time soon. But what if something happens? What if you want a fresh slate, but don’t want to lose your jailbreak? That’s why SemiRestore exists, and it’s now available for iOS 7. (more…)
As you may or may not be aware, iOS 7.1 is shipping with a decently-modified version of Calendar.app. It packs many usability modifications that make the app much easier to use. But there’s one problem: Those of us that want to hold on to our iOS 7.0.x jailbreak can’t have it – unless a developer steps in and ports it. It looks like that developer has stepped up to the plate, and his name is Coolstar. (more…)
We told you about Ayeris for iPhone and iPod touch less than a month ago, but Surenix isn’t stopping. His beautiful new theme for iOS 7, which made a splash with its original remakes of standard iOS 7 icons, is now available for iPad. Many argued that the original version didn’t deliver for its price, but if you’ve already purchased the iPhone and iPod touch version, grabbing Ayeris for iPad might be worth it. (more…)
GridSwitcher is a brand new jailbreak tweak that aims to improve the multitasking experience on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch by displaying each app in a card-based grid. It is a plug and play extension that works right after installing it from Cydia, where it can be found under the default BigBoss repository… (more…)
If you’re jailbroken and don’t want to update to iOS 7.0.6 — even though it can be jailbroken — Ryan Petrich has you covered. The enterprising developer has released SSLPatch, a tweak that can be found on his repo (http://rpetri.ch/repo/). The tweak is completely free, and everyone that hasn’t updated should grab it. Why? Because that SSL bug is horrible.
Bailey Seymour has submitted UIColors, a way to tweak the various UI elements of iOS 7, to Cydia. Seymour has tweeted various screenshots of what his tweak accomplishes, and it seems likely that the tweak will be very useful for anyone wishing to quickly customize the look and feel of their device. With iOS 7, such color tweaks look more interesting, thanks to the presence of blurred glass and white UI elements throughout the OS.
