CCRecord Adds a Control Center Shortcut for Recording Your iPhone’s Screen [Jailbreak Tweak]

Display Recorder by popular developer Ryan Petrich is one of the best jailbreak tweaks for recording your iPhone’s screen. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support iOS 10 yet, which is why another developer took matters into his own hands and developed an alternative screen recording tweak for iOS 10 called CCRecord.

This tweak adds a new shortcut to Control Center that allows you to record your iPhone’s screen with the tap of a button, which is located in the bottom right corner of Control Center.

Screen recording begins when you tap on the button and will not end until you launch Control Center and press on that button again to stop the recording. After you’re done with the recording, it will be saved to Camera Roll automatically, where you can edit it using the default tools available as well as share them with third-party apps.

While I admire the simplicity of this tweak and how it facilitates convenience, the drawback is that the screen recording will also include the portion where you launch or close Control Center to start or end the recording. However, this portion can easily be trimmed from the Camera Roll.

CCRecord doesn’t come with any preferences pane. But I would like to see an integration with Activator that allows me to start recording the screen by using an Activator gesture, thereby eliminating the need to launch Control Center every time I want to toggle screen recording.

CCRecord has been made specifically for iOS 10, therefore if you have used the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1, then you can install and enjoy this tweak on your jailbroken device. It doesn’t support iOS 9 currently.

If you’re in to give this tweak a try, it is available for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
