  • 2011 Coming to A Close Tell Us What Jailbreak Tweak Made You the Happiest and Why!

    We want to hear what jailbreak tweak made you the happiest this year.

    Please vote on the Poll in the forums section of Modmyi!

    For obvious reasons, we jailbreak our iDevices. We like to have more control of our devices, but that seems to be a common excuse for jailbreaking. Maybe it goes beyond that. Maybe we jailbreak because we can get more out of our device at no cost. Maybe it's because we like having the ability to do something just because we've been limited from doing it. Whatever the reason may be, we jailbreak our iDevices, and the jailbreak hackers fight Apple around every corner to keep jailbreaking alive every day.

    Today, jailbreaking has grown into a very widespread trend. I rarely see an iDevice that isn't jailbroken. It seems to be something that people just can't say no to anymore because the fear of losing a warranty simply isn't worth what you can do with an iDevice after you jailbreak it. Additionally, the jailbreak community has tons of support that can sometimes be even more helpful than Apple when you're not jailbroken. So to some, it's no question that jailbreaking is the way to go; when they jailbreak for the first time they look at Cydia almost to the extent of happiness with tears because of the things that they are able to do.

    Well, another year of successful jailbreaks has gone by. We want to hear from you what jailbreak application has made you the happiest. Why do you use it and why will you continue to use it? Please select your favorite jailbreak tweak from the poll and if it's not listed here then please feel free to leave a comment on what your favorite jailbreak tweak for the year of 2011 was!

      it's kinda a silly article, considering a lot of people are still waiting for the untethered
      So you need and untethered jailbreak to use jailbreak tweaks?

      My favorite tweaks are SBSettings, MobileTerminal, iFile, and all those awesome notification center add ons.

      It's between iFile and SBSettings to me. Before SBSettings was released, it was between iFile and BossPrefs (SBS predecessor). Fact is, without those two, I don't know if I would be Jailbroken today!

      Mywi - with no interwebs around its the best.

      actually I think all the ones that made it on the MMI news were ones that I have downloaded bought and loved. Thanks for finding the greatest jb tweaks

      Not to be a poor sport, but I'm stuck with the 4S until a jailbreak so for 2 months now I haven't had the opportunity to enjoy tweaks. That being said, on my older device, iFile, SDM, SBSettings, and YouMail are my favs.

      BiteSMS, Barrel, gridlock, infinidock, Mewseek(free music), qtweeter(update Facebook/twitter) and Remove Background.

      By far the best!!

      Agree with ModMyWhat, for me it's not about any specific tweaks, it's about the whole package once it's been modified to my exact specifications. I really appreciate everyone on this forum for the great info. I am surprised no one has mentioned KBShortcuts.

      mywi 5 untill att sent me a letter saying to stop tethering with my unlimited plan then did a little and then now (2 month later) they were going to automatically switch me over to the 4gb plans but had to give them my kidney and say I will never tether ever again or they will switch me and loose my unlimited.

      Undoubtedly MobileSubstrate. Without it, most other tweaks in Cydia wouldn't be available.

      I must admit that with all of the alternatives to SBSettings now with iOS 5's Notification Center and its ability to hold widgets, I am surprised that people are still voting for SBSettings.

      I never really put SBSettings at the top of my list, and I stopped using it a while ago.

      Already voted, but some I like are

      SBSettings (Simply works great. Works great even on my three year old iPhone 3G)
      F.lux (Awesome for when I end up staying up late at night.)
      WifiSMS (Looks good, to say the least)

      Though, I do have some minor criticisms,

      SBsettings is great, but can be a bit unresponsive and a little confusing with ordering the toggles to a certain way.
      F.lux is awesome, but on my iPhone 3G it still has problems transitioning, so having two different options (one for day, one for night) completely grey screens my phone, forcing me to do a force shutdown
      WifiSMS, looks great for composing long messages, (a tendency I have when I like to tell stories to my friends) but for whatever just plain out doesn't work on my iPhone. An update to fix that would help a LOT.

      Overall, these are great. Assuming these all still work, these are going to be my go-to tweaks to get once I upgrade to something nicer in the future.
