Jailbroken Users

If you have a jailbreak on your iOS Device then you are so lucky as you can use a newly jailbreak tweak called NotTodaySatan by iOS developer Zack Hankewycz comes in.

The tweak takes a smart approach to prevent these hindrances from occurring. It replaces all instances of the forbidden character with the placeholder text “❌Removed❌” instead. That said, any jailbroken device with this tweak installed on it becomes immune to unethical pranksters.

Given the immense gravity of the situation, we’d recommend that every jailbreaker go ahead and install this tweak to protect their device. After all, it might save your jailbreak from being lost forever under unfortunate circumstances.

The tweak is available for download for free at Cydia store via BigBoss repo.
