What is IconCert?
IconCert is a free jailbreak tweak that adds information of remaining certificate time on the app icon. This version supports all modern jailbreaks running iOS 13 up to iOS 14.
Every time when you install jailbreak tools like unc0ver with Sideloldy or ReProvision it's a good idea to keep a track of how long jailbreak apps will work before they will get revoked and stop opening. IconCert 14 badge is added to app icons will display how long the app is signed for.
This way you will never forget to re-sign any important app.
After installing IconCert tweak, a new preference pane is added to the Settings app from where you can configure all available options.
From the preference pane, you can turn IconCert 14 on or off, enable animations, select the time format for the badge, configure the opacity level of the badge using the slider, input the app identifier keywords that will be applied to the badge, and reset all settings to the default values.
IconCert 14 is an updated concept of IconCert tweak adding support for modern iOS versions (13 and 14). The original tweak was released by iOS developer faz for iOS 10. The functionality of the tweak is still useful and IconCert 14 works on modern jailbreaks for iOS and iPadOS devices.
