Everyone who follows the iPhone jailbreak community, and all the other cool ways that we can use exploits to modify our devices outside of Apple’s stock parameters, have a home here at iDB.
Our staff report on various news and add-ons that take advantage of these exploits throughout the week, whether they’re jailbreak tweaks or simple MacDirtyCow or kfd add-ons.
In today’s roundup, we’ll be recalling everything from this past week, spanning Monday, September 4th to Sunday, September 10th. So without further ado, let’s jump right into everything new.
Important stuff from this week
How to sideload PureKFD
The iDB team has created a step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to sideload the PureKFD package manager app onto your iPhone or iPad with the Sideloadly application for macOS and Windows.
You can learn more about this process and just how easy it is in our full tutorial post.
Jade is a completely redesigned Control Center experience for jailbroken iPhones that pairs great aesthetics with new features that even the stock Control Center interface doesn’t offer.
Not only can you theme Jade, but you can add new widgets and toggles that don’t exist in the stock interface. You can also hide or show elements, adjust their positioning, and more. You can also import or export your setups.
You can learn more about Jade and how it works in our full review post.

Even the Cluckabunga all-in-one system customization app for kfd exploit-vulnerable devices received a couple of updates this past week.
We discussed what’s new in those updates in the post below:
A new add-on called KYSOTA made specifically for devices running iOS & iPadOS 16.0-16.6 beta 1 that are vulnerable to the kfd exploit has been made available as an early beta that blocks OTA software updates.
Once installed, the OTA update mechanism stops working just like installing a tvOS profile, albeit with the expiration date.

Apple Wallet BG
A new add-on called Apple Wallet BG allows kfd exploit users to customize the face of their Apple Pay primary payment card with an image of their liking with no jailbreak required.
Simply browse through your iPhone’s Photo Library, pick a suitable image, tap on it, and you’re good to go.

You can use the new VolPause jailbreak tweak to quickly play or pause media playback by simultaneously pressing the volume up and volume down buttons.
