Tweakware VPN is just like the Simple Server you know and love, only better and more functional. It lets you hide your IP address, access prohibited or restricted websites, choose from several server locations and have unlimited data on any of them. You can have free data through the built-in proxy functions (injection query, reverse proxy and custom headers)

Why should you use Tweakware?

Well, that is easy. It gives you free Internet! Unlike some other VPN and server apps, you will not suffer from the speed plummeting while using Tweakware. You also do not need to have any money on your account to enjoy free internet. This hack definitely works for Glo, MTN and Etisalat, as many people have already tried it and loved it.

This app is great because you do not have to spend hours configuring it. There are only a few things you will need to modify to get your free data. You also do not need to root your phone for Tweakware to work. You can try out the PC version, but it only offers a free demo, and you will have to pay for the full Tweakware experience.

The only downside of this app is that you only get 100 MB a day on the free servers. However, you can upgrade to premium and get the unlimited access to the Internet.

There is no Simple Android Server latest version, as it no longer exists. It was also a rogue app and it was possibly harmful for your phone. However, you can find the latest version of Tweakware in the Google Play Store. It is free and legit.

Are you sold yet?

If yes, then get ready to browse the Internet for free with the help of Tweakware VPN. The instructions below work for the Etisalat Social Data pack owners, Glo ₦0.0 and Etisalat ₦0.0. If you have a different tariff or mobile carrier, the instructions might not work for you.

There was also a tweak for MTN ₦0.0, but the option is currently not available. If it returns, you can consult one of the following tutorials, as the steps are not all that different.

Before you even download the Tweakware app, you need to check one thing first, and it is your Access Point Name or APN. For the cheat to work, you might want to stick to your default APN settings.

If you want to check them, go to your Settings and choose Mobile networks. There, you will see the Access Point Names category. If you have multiple SIM cards, you have to tap on the SIM card that you use for Internet access.

If you are an Etisalat client, your APN should say etisalat. For Glo users, your APN should be gloflat. If you are a MTN client, yours should say If everything is the way it is supposed to be, proceed to the next step.

The second part is different, depending on your mobile carrier and tariff plan. One thing is common, though. The access to premium servers costs ₦500 and gives you unlimited free data (free servers only give you 100 MB per day) regardless of your tariff plan and mobile carrier.

Tweakware troubleshooting


Even though Tweakware is very easy to use, and most of the time it works perfectly fine, you might run into few problems.

First thing you might struggle with is connecting to Tweakware servers upon the first launch of the app. You might see the continuous authenticating without the eventual connecting. It might be so because you need to update the list of Tweakware servers. For that, you just need to turn the Internet on, go to the app and hold down the server list to update it.

Alternatively, you can try to change the proxy settings. Go to Settings > Network settings > Change Proxy Host (IP) and Port.

If you are experiencing slow speeds, go to the same Network settings as before, but this time choose Connection Settings. There, check the box that says KeepAlive. In the fields KeepAlive Interval and KeepAlive Timeout both values should be 5.


The developers of the app update it regularly. However, each new update comes with the change of the interface. Our directions on how to set up your Tweakware might be obsolete by the time of the new update.

Now you know how to use the Android simple server aka Tweakware. We hope that this tweak works for you and that you are able to enjoy your free Internet! Be aware that these cheats do not live long, and mobile carriers disable them sooner or later. So grab your free megabytes while you can!
