Jailbreak news of the week: More tweaks add rootless support, additional great releases, & more…

At iDB, it’s our goal to keep our readers apprised of the latest jailbreak tweak releases and news as it breaks. But we also know that our readers have lives and can’t hawk-eye the news every waking moment of their lives.

Weekly jailbreak news roundup.

For that reason, we curate lists like this one every single weekend that rounds everything up into one convenient and easy-to-digest post.

In this roundup, we’ll discuss everything new in the world of jailbreaking spanning the week of Monday, May 22nd to Sunday, May 28th.

Important stuff from this week

iOS 16.4.1 unsigned

iOS 16 firmware downgrade

Apple this week stopped signing iOS & iPadOS 16.4.1 one week after releasing iOS & iPadOS 16.5.

The move prevents anyone who upgraded to the newer iOS or iPadOS 16.5 firmware from being able to downgrade to the older iOS or iPadOS 16.4.1 firmware without using hacky means.

You can learn more about this change in our full news post.

People who use location-based apps, including games that lock functionalities down to specific regions in the world, might be able to make use of the Teleport jailbreak tweak.

This tweak lets you spoof your iPhone’s GPS data by entering fake coordinates or using a joystick to move your location around on a map in real time.

You can learn more about this tweak and how it might be of use to you in our full review post.

Notes jailbreak tweak

We can all relate to those moments in life when it would have been useful to have instantaneous access to a notepad to jot down important information, and sometimes taking the time to unlock your iPhone, find the Notes app, and compose a new note takes so much time that you miss a note-taking opportunity.

For that reason, the new Notes jailbreak tweak will be a useful addition to jailbroken devices everywhere. It lets you compose a new note from the Lock Screen without unlocking your device, and it can be accessed in an instant.

You can learn more about Notes and how it works in our full review post.

Squad Messages app customization tweak

With the new Squad jailbreak tweak, you can do more than ever before to keep track of all the conversations you might have in your Messages app, which is going to be useful for anyone who has more than just a few conversations going.

Not only can you sort conversations into groups rather than pinning favorites at the top of the app, but you can even customize the wallpaper for each conversation and set up quick replies for those moments when you aren’t able to compose a reply, among other things.

UnderDock powers up typing workflows


If you spend a lot of time typing on your iPhone, then the new UnderDock jailbreak tweak might be of interest to you.

This tweak adds a useful string of buttons to the bottom of the keyboard so that you can edit text more effectively with less effort.

OneSettings updated for rootless

OneSettings version 2.0.

The OneSettings jailbreak tweak that ports Samsung’s OneUI Settings layout to the iPhone has been updated to version 2.0 with support for rootless jailbreaks on iOS 15 and iOS 16.

The update also includes some other bug fixes, improvements, and new features, and drops support for iOS 13 due to issues.

DownloadBar13 gets rootless support


DownloadBar13, a popular jailbreak tweak for getting the classic bar-styled progress indicator back for downloading apps from the App Store as opposed to the modern pie graph-style download progress indicator has been updated to support rootless jailbreaks on iOS 15 and 16.
