As far as iOS has come over the last few years, jailbreaking is still the only way to get a lot of features or functionality that some people need or simply want.

Whether those features enable a whole new way of using iOS or simply offer a different appearance, a lot of people want to jailbreak, and tweaks are being released all the time that show just why jailbreaking is still so popular.

Discoverability can be a problem, though, which is why we have dug out six new jailbreak tweaks that were recently released and available to download right now.

All of the tweaks mentioned here can be downloaded from within Cydia, so if you’re carrying around a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, this is the list for you.

SilentMessenger

If you are a heavy user of the Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps, then SilentMessenger will offer you all kinds of new ways to manage your privacy, hiding your online status, typing indicator, read receipts and more.

SilentMessenger can be had for $1.50 from the BigBoss repo.

FVideo

FVideo

Facebook is fast becoming the place to go for new and interesting videos, but getting them out of the Facebook app and downloaded onto an iPhone or iPad is impossible. Unless you have FVideo installed.

The tweak is free on the BigBoss repo.

BounceEffects

If you have, at some point in your life, found yourself wishing that iOS was a little more bouncy, with animations and all, then this is the tweak for you.

You can download BounceEffects for free from the BigBoss repository.

AlwaysNightMode

Do you use Apple Maps and find yourself using it even more at night because of night mode? Installing AlwaysNightMode means you won’t need to wait for night and can have maps in night mode at will, even during day time.

The tweak is available for free on BigBoss.

Marquee

Marquee

One of the more simple tweaks around, Marquee makes it possible to give folders super long names, with the name scrolling if it’s longer than the maximum visible length.

Marquee is free and can be found under the BigBoss repo.

SpringFade

SpringFade

SpringFade simply adds a fading animation to transitions and animations within iOS. It may not have a long list of features, but it certainly does what it says. Those who like to take customization to the next level may want to give this a try.

SpringFade too is free and available over at the BigBoss repo.

And there we have it – another six jailbreak tweaks to check out. Not a bad start to the weekend!
