With everything that has been happening in the jailbreak community recently, we’d understand if you’re having trouble keeping up. That’s why we create these weekly easy-to-digest roundups, since we want all jailbreakers to know about the latest developments and tweak releases as they happen.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss the latest jailbreak tweak releases and news from this past week, spanning Monday, March 22nd to Sunday, March 28th. We’ll kick things off by going over our favorite releases in detail and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else at the end.
Our favorite releases this week
BigSurCenter – $1.99
Apple redesigned the Control Center interface in macOS Big Sur with last year’s initial rollout. Unfortunate, the same treatment wasn’t given to iOS and iPadOS devices with the launch of version 14.0.
BigSurCenter helps fill that void feeling by giving jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 13 and 14 devices a macOS Big Sur-inspired Control Center makeover.
You can learn more about BigSurCenter and what it can do for you in our full review.
CydiaPullDown – FREE
CydiaPullDown is a jailbreak tweak that extends what you can do in the Cydia package manager by allowing users to use the Pull to Refresh gesture in the app’s Changes tab.
You can learn more about CydiaPullDown in our full review.
MusicLyricsShare – FREE
When you’re jamming to your favorite track in the Apple Music app, it can be hard not to follow along with the lyrics.
MusicLyricsShare is a new and free jailbreak tweak that lets users tap and hold on the individual lyric blocks in the Apple Music app to share those lyrics as plain text any way they’d like via a stock iOS share sheet.
You can learn more about MusicLyricsShare and where you can get it in our full review.
SafariBlocker – FREE
Anyone who hates web browsing annoyances as much as I do will come to appreciate a free jailbreak tweak release called SafariBlocker.
SafariBlocker allows users to prevent Safari from displaying pop-ups. It also grants the user with whitelist and blacklist options for specific website domains and URLs for finer-grained control.
You can learn more about SafariBlocker in our full review.
Yuna – FREE
The iPad’s Control Center interface crams everything over to one side of the display, resulting in a whole lot of unused screen real estate on the other side.
Yuna is a free jailbreak tweak that does away with that wasted space by filling it with useful information including but not limited to Calendar events, Notes, Reminders, and Weather information.
You can read more about Yuna and how it works in our full review.
