I recently have been living with a jailbroken iPhone 5 for some time now, and though I sometimes miss the stock iOS, I love the freedom that jailbreak allows you to have. You can just do so much more with it. But, when I started this, I said that I would keep as close to iOS as possible. Meaning I didn’t want to install any themes or change the view of the lockscreen. So, you won’t find any of those tweaks in here. But, you will find some awesome features that will allow you to use jailbreak to it’s fullest.
1. Stride ($3)
Android users have boasting at us iPhone users for some time about their fancy lock screen. And there are so many Android Lockscreen tweaks out there on Cydia, but this is a completely new idea. You’re just drawing on the screen. The phone is your canvas and you just draw a shape a couple of times and that is now your lockscreen. The promo video is down below.
Auxo redefines multitasking for your iPhone. Instead of just having the app logo, like we’re all used to, it shows what you were previously doing in that application. It looks really cool and adds a bunch of extra features next to the music player. Including toggles for Wi-Fi, bluetooth, flashlight, etc…
Have you ever wanted to swipe down your Notification Center, turn your bluetooth or wi-fi off, and then swipe back up and it was off? NCSettings allows you to do just this. It gives a toggle bar for wifi, bluetooth, etc… in your Notification Center, so it’s extremely simple to turn them off.
iFile is essentially the Finder for your iPhone. It allows you to go deep into the files of your applications, settings and other files. It’s extremely useful and easy to use.
5. MyWi 6.0
This IS the reason why I jailbroke my phone. So I could use my iPhone as a wi-fi hotspot. It’s absolutely incredible and I use it so much. Plus, you only have to pay $20 once, and then you get it for free. It’s awesome.
All of these are great Cydia Tweaks that you should definitely get. Other ones are Universal Video Downloader (allowing you to download any video from any app), Barrel, Activator and AssistantLove.
