The Pangu team released their iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 jailbreak last week, but did so in a hurry, which meant that Cydia wasn’t available right away. While saurik made Cydia available quickly, it had to be manually installed.
Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks
Following the release of the Pangu 8 jailbreak for iOS 8 — iOS 8.1, saurik has been hard at work at updating Cydia and Substrate. We were quite surprised by how fast they were updated for iOS 8, but saurik today has updated another tweak, AFC2, for iOS 8 — iOS 8.1.
The entire jailbreak community was taken by surprise yesterday, when the Pangu team released an iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 jailbreak for all iOS devices.
For all of you still on iOS 7 with that nice jailbreak of yours, we have some new tweaks we’d like to share with you. I’m really looking forward to the iOS 8 jailbreak and I’m sure you are too, but for now we’ll have to settle for some iOS 7 tweaks. Today we’ll be covering CallShortcut, Flurry, InternalPhotos, ScrubAround, TypeandTalk, and Impulse. So let’s get started!
Impulse is a new jailbreak tweak that intuitively allows you to control music playback on your iPhone while the device is locked using touch gestures. Based on multitouch functionality, you can tap on the iPhone’s screen to play or pause the music or swipe your finger up and down or left and right to adjust the volume or change tracks respectively.
To allow for one-handed usage of the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple introduced a new feature called Reachability for the two devices. Reachability can be activated by double tapping — not physically pressing — the Home button, at which point the top half of the screen automatically shifts down towards the bottom so that your fingers can reach that area.
