Chat Heads Anywhere On Your iPhone With MessageBox


Today I’m going to talk about a new and exciting jailbreak tweak called MessageBox. The tweak allows you to enable Facebook’s new Chat Head feature system-wide.

If you’ve been around jailbreaking for any length of time, you probably weren’t surprised to see Chat Heads appear on iOS within such a short period of time. It was even less surprising when I heard who was actually behind the tweak — Adam Bell. Adam is an excellent developer and designer, and he’s come up with some of the community’s most innovative releases.

How to install MessageBox:

Note: You must be jailbroken, and have iFile on your device to follow these instructions.
Step 1: Install the official Facebook app from the App Store
Step 2: Download this file from GitHub while on your iPhone
Step 3: Open the file with iFile, and select install
Step 4: After installation is completed, completely reboot your device
After rebooting, load up the Facebook app, login, and initiate a conversation using the Messenger button in the upper right-hand corner. Once a chat is initiated, you should see a Chat Head appear.
Once the Chat Head appears, you can press the Home button to get back to the Home screen, and the Chat Head should still be present on the screen. Tap the Chat head to open the conversation view, and tap the head again to close the view.
