  • Unique Tweaks for your Jailbroken iDevice
    Getting the most out of your device is one of the main reasons we all jailbreak. However, with such a large amount of Apps and Tweaks, there are a few that stand out as not just everyday tweaks, but rather, the more unique tweaks that really modify the way the device performs. There are obviously too many to list, so here are a few to get you started, I'm sure the community will contribute more

    Move LockScreen To Unlock
    sirpreis
    Pretty much exactly as the tweak name suggests, this one will allow you to simply swipe, or flick the LockScreen away to reveal your SpringBoard. It's extremely quick and even let's you keep your slide to unlock function working as well.

    Find this in Cydia for $0.99

    VoiceActivator

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrVgvTgyUs8[/ame]


    VoiceActivator, by chpwn, has completely changed the way Voice Control works in iOS and gives users the ability to add completely new voice commands, giving you TRUE Voice Control on your device. It's as simple as creating new commands and assigning an action.

    Definitely check this one out! It's in Cydia for $4.99.


    Dimmer
    phoenix3200

    This simple tweak will allow you to get your device's brightness to an acceptable level when in dark situations, such as bed. This handy tweak is great for the eyes. I'd like to see it get even dimmer, but perhaps that can be in an update.


    Find this one in Cydia for $0.99


    RetinaPad
    rpetrich
    I use this app all the time on the iPad. It's a step above FullForce, and looks much cleaner on the iPad than the pixelated iPhone apps. Like using iPhone apps on your iPad, then check this one out for sheeezy.

    Available in Cydia for $2.99


    GridLock
    chpwn
    Another favorite from many, GridLock allows you to place icons wherever you'd like, without the need of using something like iBlank. This app comes in handy for many scenarios, especially theming.

    You can check out GridLock in Cydia for $0.99



    Post your favorite tweaks that are unique in how they make your device operate and function. I'm not talking your everyday tweaks, I'm talking those unique ones, that make you go, "Wow, Why hasn't Apple incorporated this?"

      LOL, wasn't that Apple's pitch for their own multitasking when it came out?

      Questions: Is Dimmer any better than SBSettings' brightness function? And how bad is removebg on crashing? Is there a better alternative?

      unfortunately most of these require 4.2 ipad and since I'm stuck on 3.2 with no untethered JB in sight, my downloads and purchases from Cydia are way down from what I normally do. It's also starting to cause issue with apple store as most new cool apps (bep360) require 4.2.

      Two of my favorites that I use on my ipad (3.2) and my iphone (4.1) are SleepFX and WallpaperAutoChanger found them on the insanelyi repo.

      other favorites infidock,infifolders,SBsettings and of course Winterboard which makes so many things possible.

      I almost forgot!

      MyWi is a must have! Definitely pays for itself!

      And I prefer ScrollingBoard over Infini-Everything...

      I love this tweak... No. It's not that much trouble, but with the amount of time I unlock my iPhone every day the half a second saved adds up. It's not that big a deal, but for only .99 I think it's 100% worth it.

      Weather Icon & Live Clock are pretty cool (not all that useful but a cool added feature!).

      Rename is pretty neat too; it's annoying when your ********** apps have weird names... so just rename them to your liking!

      PerPageHTML: This should have been how widgets worked since the beginning of iPhone widgets.

      Panorama: goes hand in hand with PerPageHTML for a perfect HTC theme

      GridLock: The app I wish I knew about months ago. No more iBlanks

      InfiniDock / InfiniFolders / Infiniboard: I love 'em

      Locktopus: Perfect for keeping people out of my email lol

      User Agent Faker: Perfect for when I want to use the normal version of ModMyi on my iPhone...

      Safari Download Manager: I cant have an iPhone without it.

      Shrink: When I feel like having a 5x5 icon layout.

      My list goes on and on, but these are my most commonly used.

      Thanks, mans. He just PMed it to me as well. I wanted to make sure I had the developer's choice, not a rehost.

      So, the only difference between DeepEnd adn 3DBoard is $2.99, right?

      I think DeepEnd is based on moving the Wallpaper and 3DBoard moves the icons.

      I don't get why people such as yourself always revert to insults for people who have different opinions... Why does ANYONE DO ANYTHING? I myself bypass my lockscreen completely. Before started doing that I had a "tap to unlock" instead of slide to unlock tweak. Why? Because that's what I wanted. Tapping was easier than sliding. Then I just stopped using my lockscreen all together because I didn't use lockinfo or anything like that...

      There's nothing wrong with curiosity as to why someone does something. But to call names and to insult because someone does something you don't like or agree with just plain childish.

      Thanks for the list! There should be a thread section with JUST these kinds of previews of Cydia apps. The worst part about Cydia is that it's hard finding new stuff.
