Jailbreak tweak developers have been particularly busy these past several weeks, and this week was no exception. We unquestionably have the unc0ver iOS 12 jailbreak to thank for this sudden revitalization, and there’s still much more to come.
In case you haven’t been following along as closely as you should have, this roundup will summarize all this week’s new jailbreak tweak releases. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites first and then outline the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
ChargeAnimation – $1.99
Everyone seems to want a sexy new charging animation for their iPhone these days, and with that in mind, a new jailbreak tweak called ChargeAnimation seems to meet the newfangled demand.
ChargeAnimation comes with several different charging animations to choose from, including a relatively new one called Miui, which was inspired by Xaiomi’s MIUI handset.
You can learn more about ChargeAnimation and where you can get it in our full review.
CopyLog – $1.99
CopyLog is a brand-new jailbreak tweak that brings a full-fledged Clipboard manager to your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
CopyLog keeps an ongoing Clipboard history and lets you know which apps you copied or cut the text from. It also makes it easier to access those histories and paste them somewhere else later on. It’s great for multitasking.
If you’re interested in improving iOS’ Clipboard experience, then you should check out CopyLog. Our full review will explain more about how the tweak works and why it’s a worthwhile purchase.
Essentials – $1.50
Essentials is a new all-in-one SpringBoard customization tweak that will feel familiar if you’ve ever used Springtomize before.
Essentials puts a preference pane in the Settings app with options for nearly every interface element that you’ll find on the iOS platform. With it, you can customize your device’s aesthetics and behavior.

SmartLight – FREE
If you use your iPhone’s flashlight feature a lot, then you might come to appreciate a jailbreak tweak called SmartLight.
SmartLight makes it so that you can access the built-in flashlight feature with the handset’s hardware buttons in addition to the Lock screen’s software buttons, which may be more ideal for situations where you have dirty hands and don’t want to smudge your display.
Sonus12 – $1.75
The native volume HUD on the iOS platform sucks, but a new jailbreak tweak called Sonus12 can make it so much more aesthetically pleasing.
Not only is Sonus12 smaller and unobtrusive, but it’s fully customizable. You’ll find a bevy of settings to configure in the Settings app where you can tweak it to your liking.
