  • 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?"

      How can you forget SBSettings and anything Chpwn made like: inififolders?!

      I agree with sbsettings. Something used as often as a person checks their phone. Droid's with their "app killer" that doesn't even really close the app can't compare to a themeable sbsettings program :-)

      Winterboard isn't unique though. Almost everyone has that.

      MOVE LOCKSCREEN TO UNLOCK
      Is it really to much trouble to move ones finger to the bottom of the lockscreen and swipe to unlock. It seems that people that buy this app either have to much money to burn and are stupid or are just plain bone idle.

      Well people buy themes too. I haven't, but people do.

      I downloaded FullForce for ipad but it didn't work with ANYTHING! not even Facebook. All it did was distort the screen even more. So right now I am really convinced into buying RetinaPad.

      What you should have said was, "There are obviously too many to list, but that doesn't matter, I'm sure the community will try and hang me for it."

      Just kidding. Here's my can't live without list. I've only been JBed for like a month, so I'm still discovering things.

      -E is for Ezra (I know it's a theme more than a functionality, but it's wonderful)
      -SBSettings (SpringFlash add on for Activator flashlight)
      -BiteSMS
      -CleanStatus
      -Five Icon Dock (I gave up on 5-Column Springboard)
      -FolderEnhancer
      -Gridlock
      -My3G
      -OpenSSH!!!
      -PhotoAlbums+
      -ShakeToUndo Killer
      -BytaFont (Currently loving the Ubuntu font)

      I also use Cyntact, but I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'll be sure to keep an eye on VoiceActivator, sounds niiice.

      I LOVED that until it just became super unstable and crashed my SpringBoard every time.

      VoiceActivator is probably the greatest system tweak ever... I never thought It would allow so much customization... chpwn's video doesn't do it any justice!
