Orion is one of the most comprehensive all-in-one jailbreak tweaks we’ve ever seen

When you jailbreak your iPhone or iPad, one of the first things you’re going to want to do is begin customizing some of the things you can’t usually customize out of the box. This can be done with jailbreak tweaks, which are small add-ons that change the behavior or appearance of your device’s operating system.

When you’re getting ready to tweak your device, you ultimately have two options: 1) download a plethora of single-purpose jailbreak tweaks to achieve your ideal setup; or 2) download an all-in-one jailbreak tweak that can do the same in one fell swoop.

It’s logical that most would opt for the latter, at least in theory, as it means installing fewer tweaks and therefore exhibiting a reduced risk of instability via an incompatibility between two or more of those tweaks. Unfortunately, the vast majority of all-in-one tweaks aren’t as “all-in-one” as we’d like, so we install several tweaks anyway.

That’s where Orion, a brand new all-in-one jailbreak tweak by iOS developer John Zarogiannis, comes into play. In fact, when Zarogiannis calls this an “all-in-one” tweak, he isn’t joking. It quite literally provides users with one of the densest collections of options that we’ve ever seen — so many, in fact, that it’ll take us a while to outline what the tweak can do.

Because Orion is packed with so many features, we’ll be outlining them in sections to improve readability. Follow along as we give you the VIP tour.

Upon launching the Settings app and scrolling down, you’ll discover a dedicated preference pane for Orion where you can begin toggling options on or off to your liking:

The primary preference pane includes a Respring button, a master toggle switch, and sectional preference sub-panes for each of the following parameters:

Bringing it all together, it’s evident from the extensive list of options that Orion is one of the most comprehensive all-in-one jailbreak tweaks we’ve ever featured here at iDB. Upon speaking with the developer, we learned that more than four months of tireless time were dedicated to Orion’s making, and the product speaks for itself.

In addition to providing jailbreakers with a slew of customization options, the tweak also incorporates a number of existing jailbreak tweaks into one – a substantial bragging point given that Orion is a steal at just $3.99 from the Chariz repository. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 and 14 devices, allowing most modern devices to take full advantage of the fruit it bears.

Do you plan to customize your pwned handset with the Orion tweak, or are you happy with the long list of tweaks you’ve already installed? Be sure to let us know in the comments section down below.
