WhoMadeIt Tweak Reveals Cydia Package Authors In The Changes Tab

New jailbreak tweak helps you to reveal Cydia package authors in the Changes tab on your jailbroken iOS 10 device. When you’re browsing Cydia’s latest releases and looking for new extensions install, you typically need to click on each individual one just to see the author behind them. Dubbed as WhoMadeIt this jailbreak tweak changes this. This tweak shows the author’s name next to the package’s name in Cydia’s Changes tab, as shown on screenshot example below.

WhoMadeIt can be a useful utility for Cydia if you avoid packages made by a particular developer you’ve had issues with previously. Moreover, if you see a developer’s name that you’re familiar with, you might be more inclined to try a new package.

The modification WhoMadeIt imposes on the Cydia interface is so subtle that you’ll hardly notice it’s there. It blends in with the stock interface so well that it looks like a stock feature. Nevertheless, don’t let its simplicity fool you; it’s a great tweak.

Note that WhoMadeIt doesn’t reveal tweak authors when searching for packages manually, so the functionality is strictly limited to the Changes tab:

If you deal with new jailbreak tweaks on a daily basis, this tweak quickly become a valuable addition to your jailbroken device. After trying it for the short time that I did, it now feels like a must-have that I can’t live without, of course, your mileage may vary.

So if you want to reveal Cydia package authors in the Changes tab with WhoMadeIt tweak then it is available from BigBoss repository for free. The big advantage is that the tweak works on all iOS versions from iOS 3 to iOS 10.

The WhoMadeIt tweak doesn’t have any options to configure, so changes should take effect immediately after installation. You might want to force-quit the Cydia app from the App Switcher after installation though, just to ensure it works correctly.
