What is MegaSafe Controller?
MegaSafe Controller is a free jailbreak tweak that brings the native "MagSafe" charging view to your iPhone when connecting the device to a power source. The tweak displays the native charing view on iOS 14.1 and above and it's compatible with all jailbreaks running iOS 12+.
After you install this jailbreak tweak on your iPhone, a dedicated preference pane will get added in the Settings app where you can configure MegaSafe Controller to suit your needs. Toggle the tweak on or off on demand, control the size and color of charging view elements, enable it when using a wired or wireless charger, and change the color of blure in the background.
The developer included also a respring button to apply the changes you make and an option to reset all settings to default values. Don't use tweaks that disable the charging view.
Tomasz Poliszuk released also the MagSafe Enabler tweak. Once installed, it will basically enable a new native MagSafe charging view on the Lock Screen when connecting the device to a power source on iOS 14.1 and above. Can be enabled from the MegaSafe Controller tweak.
