Are You a Retro Fan with a Not-so-Retro Jailbroken iPhone? This Tweak Is for You

Posted by Dennis D. Bednarz on May 12, 2019 in Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks

Retro is the new modern, people say. The 10’s have been filled with throwback products from major companies loving the 1930’s style. But it’s not only companies that are having fun. The team “Geometric Software” has just released a new jailbreak tweak for iOS 12 devices (including A12 support) called RotaryPass and it does exactly what you think it does.

RotaryPass is a tweak that transforms your passcode screen into an old-school rotary selector. Developed by 5 hard-working people, it was done on a request from the controversial /r/Jailbreak subreddit. The tweak itself is very simple with an eye-pleasing UI, so fret not if you thought you’d have an actual image of a rotary phone on your lockscreen.


The developers have noted that while the tweak is on sale for $1.99, redditors have pointed out that this does not include tax, making it $2.49. The original price of the tweak will end up being $2.99 before tax once the sale is over, however, we do not know how much tax will be added on top.

If you’re interested in purchasing the tweak, you can do so by adding to your package manager of choice and searching for “RotaryPass”, or if you’re interested in taking a look at it first, you can go to the preview page of the tweak here.
