With jailbreak tools under development for both iOS 10.3-10.3.3 and iOS 11.0-11.1.2, it’s tough to discern where users should be for the best experience possible these days. Nevertheless, developers continue to release new jailbreak tweaks despite the erratic state of the community.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the new jailbreak tweaks released throughout the week. As usual, we’ll kick things off by showcasing our favorites and then outline the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Marina – FREE
Marina is a new jailbreak tweak that provides a bevy of Dock-centric customization settings.
Among the things Marina makes possible are:
Customize the number of app icons in the Dock
Hide various Dock interface elements
Move the Dock around
Display your Dock on the Home screen’s Today page

MoreLinesNotifications – FREE
iOS automatically limits the amount of text that appears in your Lock screen and Notification Center notification previews, and MoreLinesNotifications changes that.
This tweak is ideal for folks that receive long text messages or emails more often than the average Joe. One of its key benefits is being able to see a lengthy message in its entirety from the Lock screen without unlocking the device.
MoreLinesNotifications sacrifices a little bit of message content privacy for convenience, but some might find it useful nonetheless.
You can read our full review of MoreLinesNotifications to learn more about why it’s an excellent add-on for jailbroken iOS 10 devices.
