Weekly jailbreak news roundup.

Although the news is often very fast-paced throughout the week, we come at you every Sunday with a roundup just like this one that ties everything into one easy to read post.

In this piece, we’ll go over the latest jailbreak tweak releases and hacking news spanning Monday, March 18th through Sunday, March 24th. So without further ado… well, you know the rest.

Important stuff from this week


Pinnacle user interface.

The new Pinnacle jailbreak tweak brings Apex & Zenith-style app icon organization to the Home Screen of iOS 16 devices.

Those apps are organized into stacks, making a nested app effect. This effectively helps you group alike notifications together in a more intuitive way than that of basic app folders.

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

SmartNotifications iOS16

SmartNotifications iOS16 Banner.

You can enhance the notification experience on jailbroken iOS 15 and 16 devices with features that aren’t typically available on non-jailbroken devices with the SmartNotifications iOS16 jailbreak tweak.

You can learn more about SmartNotifications iOS16 and what it can do for you in our full review post.


16Player screenshot examples.

With the 16Player jailbreak tweak, you’re able to port the iOS 16 Now Playing player aesthetic to jailbroken installations of iOS 14 and 15.

But it doesn’t stop there. In addition to porting the newer interface, it gives users more interface customization options than even stock iOS 16 devices have.

You can learn more about 16Player and what you can do with it in our full review post.


Settings icon found in tvOS.

Everyone likes it when they can customize SpringBoard in a variety of different ways using only one jailbreak tweak, which is why the free SpringHooker add-on should be on your radar if you’re interested in all-encompassing customizations.

You can learn more about SpringHooker and what you can do with it in our full review post.

SponsorBlock for YouTube Music

SponsorBlock for YouTube Music banner.

The SponsorBlock for YouTube Music add-on for the YouTube Music app can allow the user to either automatically or manually block sponsored segments in the app between media consumption.

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


YouTube Music app’s Cast button.

The free YTMusicNoCast jailbreak tweak removes the Cast button from the YouTube Music app on jailbroken iPhones and iPads for those who don’t use it.

You can learn more about YTMusicNoCast and where you can get it from in our full review post.

Easy Notifications

Easy Notifications banner.

The Easy Notifications jailbreak tweak hides the option button when swiping to the left on notification banners, making it easier than ever to dismiss missed notifications.

You can learn more about Easy Notifications in our full review post.


NoColoredDots examples.

The NoColoredDots jailbreak tweak hides the green and orange colored dot indicators that appear in the Status Bar and in Control Center whenever an app begins recording your activities with the camera or microphone.
