Amonglock – Among Us has recently released an update for the game that now allows users to cast in anonymized votes.
Additionally, it also comes with a ton of bug fixes and optimizations that should help run the game a lot better now. If you are an Among Us fan then you probably know about the recent influx of artwork and merch that has flooded the internet.
While an Among Us wallpaper is great, wouldn’t it be great to have an Among Us Keypad as your lock screen? Well, that is exactly the dream a jailbreak dev had which has now been fulfilled. Meet AmongLock! Let’s take a quick look at it?
What is AmongLock?
AmongLock is a tweak that completely alters the look of your lock screen on iOS devices. Your keypad is now an Among Us keypad from the Reactor in Skeld and it even has sound effects from the game.
You get a cool background animation as well for your lock screen background and every wrong password leads to the ‘ejected’ screen from Among Us. It is a great revamp and the code has been written from the ground up.
There seem to be no bugs as of yet and the tweak seems to work flawlessly on most iPhones. There is just one problem in case you are not a power user, let’s take a look at it.
What do you need to get AmongLock?
Well, you need a jailbroken device to get AmongLock. AmongLock is a tweak that modifies the iOS file system and requires elevated execution policies which can be only achieved through a jailbreak. Jailbreaking is the task of gaining root access to your filesystem.
It was first introduced with the release of iPhone 3Gs. While a jailbreak existed for earlier models, it did not have the ability to unlock your device.
Nowadays, jailbreaks have become much more streamlined and a single jailbreak can help you achieve everything you need.
Sadly, Apple tries very hard to stop jailbreaks and a specific jailbreak needs to happen for a supported version of iOS.
This means that as soon as a jailbreak release, Apple releases a patched version of iOS. Once you have updated to this version, your device can not be jailbroken.
Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass this restriction other than saving blobs for your device that allow you to downgrade it in the future.
This method has a 50% chance of failing hence we don’t recommend relying on it. Additionally, if you are looking to get into jailbreaking then you should visit the official subreddit.
There are a lot of scam and phishing websites that claim to jailbreak your device and only install malware and put your data and privacy at risk.

The AmongLock tweak is similar to the Reactor task from Among Us which requires the user to press the buttons on the keypad in a specific pattern to complete the task.
This tweak allows users to unlock their iPhones or iPads with the keypad from the game. In case of entering an incorrect passcode, the AmongLock tweak displays the impostor screen from Among Us with the message, “You were not the owner of this phone. Try again.”
The AmongLock tweak is available as a jailbreak add-on for iOS devices. However, this specific tweak is only available for iOS versions 13 and 14.
