Jailbreak Tweaks of the Week: There’s been so much excitement in the last couple of weeks about the checkm8 bootrom exploit that we can’t wait to see what becomes of it. On the other hand, those already jailbroken with Chimera or uncover will be happy to know that we continuously report on the best of the newest jailbreak tweak releases each day.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, November 4th to Sunday, November 10th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorites and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
BadgeMe – $1.99
iOS’ notification badges have looked nearly the same for more than a decade, and it doesn’t look like Apple has any plans soon to let users customize their appearance.
If you’re tired of waiting for an official solution and you have a jailbroken handset at your disposal, then you’ll want to check out a jailbreak tweak called BadgeMe, as it lets you change a bevy of parameters regarding their appearance and behavior.
You can learn more about BadgeMe and how it works in our full review.
ScreenSafe – $1.00
ScreenSafe is a fun and quirky jailbreak tweak that brings a traditional screensaver experience to the jailbroken iOS platform.
While screensavers aren’t particularly necessary, they can be aesthetically pleasing and assist with screen burn-in prevention. This is especially the case with OLED displays, which are now present on most of Apple’s flagships.
You can learn more about ScreenSafe and what you can do with it in our full review.
