Jailbreak tweaks updated for iOS 9.3.3 compatibility

Cydia packages

Pangu took the world by storm this week, releasing the first iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool. While the software is still in its early stages, jailbreak developers have wasted no time taking advantage of this news. Paid tweaks are temporarily suspended until the jailbreak is deemed stable enough to fully open the Cydia app store. Free jailbreak packages can still be downloaded and installed at will.

Two popular tweaks have already been updated for iOS 9.3.3 compatibility, which likely means that many more are on the way.


Ryan Petrich updated Activator to version 1.9.9, bringing this vital tweak up to date with the latest Pangu jailbreak tool. This is incredible news for anyone waiting for the dust to settle surrounding the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak before jumping in. A multitude of other jailbreak tweaks depend on Activator for full functionality, and Petrich has now opened the door to iOS 9.3.3.

Activator makes it possible to assign custom gestures to actions, vastly expanding the possibilities for input and control. The package is by far one of the most used tweaks available in Cydia.


Another heavyweight, Springtomize has been updated by Janosch Hübner, who took over the reins from Filippo Bigarella. While the tweak normally retails for $2.99, during the Cydia store freeze only existing users will have access to this free update. Regardless, the fact that Springtomize 3 now brings its full list of customization options to the iOS 9.3.3 table is welcome news. The clear signal from Hübner is that iOS 9.3.3 users will not jailbreak in vain.

Springtomize offers an incredible list of options to modify every nook and cranny of iOS through various settings. Items including Animations, Control Center, Folders, Icons, Lock Screen, and the Status Bar can all be modified. The variety of options available in Springtomize actually boggles the mind.

More to come

Look out for more major league jailbreak tweaks to bring iOS 9.3.3 compatibility in the coming weeks ahead. With Pangu working on English-language and Mac versions of their jailbreak tool, Cydia will soon open its doors for business for jailbroken devices running iOS 9.3.3.
