The jailbreak community is well known not only for innovation and the production of tweaks which enhance iOS devices, but also for the wealth of development talent which exists in and around the community. Ask any regular jailbreaker and I would put money on the fact that they could confidently name at least a handful of developers who produce the tweaks that we find within Cydia.
For those of us who use Twitter and follow updates from our favorite developers, it isn’t uncommon to see regular announcements giving away tweaks and licenses for jailbroken users. To celebrate the holiday period, and to give back to the community which supports their work a group of iOS jailbreak developers have created a group called iOSPromo, with the sole intention of giving away sixty five free copies of some of the most popular tweaks available.
The rules of the giveaway are beautifully simplistic. To be eligible to win one of the tweaks, users must be following the respective tweak developers on Twitter and Tweet out a specific message to be considered for the tweak license. You can head on over to the iOSPromo website for full details but for quick reference, the Tweet required is:
