Choicy lets you configure individual jailbreak tweak injections for apps & daemons
Android gives you myriads of ways for customisation. With the help of third-party applications, you can change the way the whole platform looks. For extreme personalisation freaks, rooting fetches countless possibilities.
When you address the other side of the spectrum (iOS, of course), the raw OS comes with certain constraints. You can’t always tweak the platform in full swing. That’s what paved the path to jailbreaking, a process to gain elated privileges on iOS.
What can you do on a jailbroken iDevice? Well, it’s possible to add widgets directly on lockscreen, set brightness sensitive dark mode, elegantly organise home screen icons, enable always on display, get iPhone X-like gestures, and a lot more.
Unbelievable, right? Such are the options you have when you jailbreak your iPhone. But don’t expect the procedure to be easy peasy! One has to go through a few geeky steps with the help of a compatible tool.
So, that begs the question of where we can find a good tool. Right now, the popular choice is checkra1n. It supports iOS 12.3 and above. Though it only runs on macOS right now, you can use a Windows PC to perform checkra1n jailbreak with the help of ra1nstorm.
Guess what! We have got another good news for jailbroken iPhone/iPad users. Yesterday, Choicy has gone live. By adding it to your favourite package manager (Cydia, Zebra, and Sileo are available), you can individually configure tweak injections.
Choicy adds the ability to individually configure tweak injection for applications and daemons. The configuration works by setting either a blacklist of tweaks not to load or a whitelist of the tweaks to exclusively load. Alternatively, it is also possible to disable tweak injection for an individual process altogether. There is also an option to add an application shortcut to launch the application with or without tweaks once.
Supports iOS 10 and up!
Out now on https://opa334.github.io/, will be submitted to BigBoss later.
EDIT: 1.0.1 is out to fix 3D touch option not appearing on some apps
EDIT: 1.0.2 is out to improve tweak detection and was also finally submitted to BigBoss
Note:- Stay tuned to our iOS section to know the arrival of more tools like Choicy.
