[Jailbreak Tweak] Give 3rd Party Apps A Javascript Boost With Nitrous


Brought to us by Joe Jordan Nitrous is a new jailbreak tweak that aims to unlock Apple’s private Javascript engine. Before this tweak 3rd party applications such as Facebook and more importantly Google Chrome had no access to the enhancing engine.

With Nitrous you can unlock access to Apple’s Nitro JavaScript engine boosting web browsing speed for 3rd party applications.

You can purchase Nitrous from the Cydia Store for $0.99.


Requires iOS 5 or higher

Unlock the Nitro JavaScript engine to give your apps a speed boost.

Normally, Nitro is only available to Apple apps such as Safari and iBooks. Nitrous lets you grant this access to other apps.

Nitro dramatically improves JavaScript performance in WebKit-heavy applications like Chrome and Facebook.

No new icons are added to your home screen – you can find Nitrous on the main page of the Settings app.
