Is The Status of Jailbreak Dying?
Unless you haven’t been paying attention lately, most new Cydia tweaks for iOS 10.2 seem to be control center related. Just like today’s tweak review, Onizuka for iOS 10. Who names these tweaks, for real?? But anyway, check it out its great ControlCenter tweak. It will do anything you need in ControlCenter just short of pay for dinner.
This really concerns me for a variety of reason. Has Apple finally won the Cat and Mouse game between Apple and Jailbreak developers? Jailbreakers have played this game since the first Jailbreak started almost a decade ago? Has Apple finally won the battle making it too difficult to change various parts of iOS?
Don’t think I’m saying the tweaks being created today aren’t quality. We are very supportive and thankful to have such developers as Ryan Petrich and manny others who have been here for the journey from the beginning. There are many great developers in the community and that’s why I am bringing this out. What’s happened? Am I expecting too much too fast??
Where is Jailbreak Going?
We are still getting awesome tweaks such as Eclipse 4, Noctis (another CC Tweak LOL), HorseShoe, and the list goes on from there. But, where are the really good big tweaks today. It just seems the majority of new tweaks are based on control center. If Apple has made it too difficult to tweak other parts of iOS 10 let us know devs.
The Big Question everyone’s thinking about today in the Jailbreak Community is the untethered iOS 10 Jailbreak status?? Why don’t we have an iOS 10 untethered jailbreak yet? These are all questions which have good answers. That’s why I must ask, has Apple finally barricaded iOS to the point of no returning the untethered jailbreak?
Have the majority of the really good developers moved onto other projects due to this fact? Lastly, is jailbreaking really just going away. Let’s hope these are just concerns from paranoia. What do think? Let me know in the comments section. Where’s the IntelliScreenX style of tweaks, for example? That’s the type of tweaks which caught my eye years ago.
Are these tweaks still possible to develop? Has Apple barricaded iOS 10?
Anyone who would like to offer some sensible advice on this topic please share int he comments. I can’t be the only one feeling and thinking these things. Or am I???? Again, this was not written with hurt in mind.
