With the imminent launch of the evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6.x, Intelliborn has released new versions of their popular jailbreak apps – IntelliScreenX, MyWi and M3G to add support for iOS 6.x.

IntelliScreenX 6:

Notification Center is one of my favorite iOS features, but IntelliScreenX makes it even better by adding tons of features such as the ability to access it from the Lock screen, quick access to the full text of the email and Calendar items directly within Notification Center, access Facebook news feed, Twitter timeline, RSS feeds from anywhere in the iOS via the Notification Center.

It also adds useful badges for missed email, SMS, phone calls, and silent status in the status bar. Messages+ which enhances the Messages app also comes bundled with IntelliScreenX.

IntelliScreenX 6 brings the much needed iOS 6 support. It also supports iPhone 5’s taller display. In addition to the iOS 6 and iPhone 5 support, IntelliScreenX comes with Calendar improvements (alerting and ability to choose the calendar), a new toggle for flashlight and some bug fixes.

IntelliScreenX 6 is available for $9.99 on Cydia for new users. Unfortunately, the new version is not a free update, existing users have to pay a steep $4.99 to upgrade to the new version. It’s only free for users who had purchased IntelliScreenX after December 1st 2012.

MyWi 6:

MyWi turns your iPhone into a Wi-Fi hotspot. Share your WiFi signal via your own WiFi Hotspot or via USB. This allows your iPhone to be connected to a WiFi hotspot, and share that connection to other devices via it’s own Wi-Fi Hotspot.

MyWi 6 supports iOS 6 and iPhone 5’s taller display.

MyWi 6 is available for $19.99 on Cydia for new users. Just like IntelliScreenX 6, the new version of MyWi is not a free update, existing users have to pay a steep $4.99 to upgrade to the new version. It’s only free for users who had purchased MyWi after December 1st 2012.

Messages+:

Messages+ jailbreak tweak as the name suggests enhances the Messages app. It allows you to compose or reply to a text message from anywhere in the iOS. It comes built-in to IntelliScreenX.

Messages+ is available for $7.99 on Cydia for new users. Just like IntelliScreenX 6 and MyWi 6, the new version of Messages+ is not a free update, existing users have to pay $4.99 to upgrade to the new version. It’s only free for users who had purchased Messages+ after December 1st 2012.

It is disappointing to see Intelliborn charge such a high upgrade fee for just adding support for iOS 6 and iPhone 5. Intelliborn argues that making the jailbreak apps compatible with iOS 6 needed a lot of time and effort. While this may be true and we’re glad they’ve added iOS 6 and iPhone 5 support, they seem to forget (or ignore) the fact that they have made it compatible with iOS 6 or later so that they can sell more copies of their tweaks when the evasi0n jailbreak is released. It’s not just for the users, if it was the case they would have added iOS 6 support as soon as it was released.

Let me know what do you think about Intelliborn’s decision to charge such a high upgrade free in the comments.
