2.4 beta 1

  • Adds support for iOS 11 and iPhone X Home Bar. Requires the latest Electra Release Candidate and the RocketBootstrap beta from rpetrich.com/repo.
  • The TypeStatus Provider framework has been moved from TypeStatus Plus to the free tweak. This may seem like a downgrade for TypeStatus Plus, but no providers were made for Plus by anyone other than ourselves. We’re hoping this will make developers consider building a provider.
  • Note this beta release is incompatible with TypeStatus Plus. It will be uninstalled if you install this. Update is still being worked on.
