With another week now behind us, we’re coming at you with a roundup comprised of all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news to help ensure that you don’t miss a beat during these rapidly changing times in the community.
In this roundup, we’ll showcase jailbreak tweaks and news released from Monday, February 22nd to Sunday, February 28th. As always, we’ll start things off with a discussion about our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Astolfo – FREE
Astolfo is an easy recommendation on this list, because it lets jailbreakers customize their iPhone or iPad’s Siri background image.
What’s normally filled with empty transparent space can now be filled with an image of your choosing, just as shown above, to give your Siri interface a more personalized touch.
You can learn more about Astolfo and what it can do for you in our full review.
Cylinder Reborn – FREE
Cylinder Reborn is yet another no-brainer for this list, partly due to the fact that it’s based on one of my favorite jailbreak tweaks of all time: Barrel.
With Cylinder Reborn, you can apply custom paging animations to your Home Screen to make moving between app pages more fun. You can select one or multiple animations, and even randomize them to keep things interesting.
You can learn more about Cylinder Reborn and why it’s such a necessity for jailbreakers in our full review.
