Here are 36 free Cydia tweaks for your iPad.

Here are the 42 best paid Cydia tweaks for your iPad!

Cydia, the main ipad jailbreak app store, now lets you know when an app is not compatible with the jailbroken iPad. Instead of having to refer to the google docs spreadsheet of working iPad Jailbreak Apps, and prevents you from installing them in the first case.


I have kept my iPad jailbroken and may soon start experimenting with some old favorite jailbreak apps, as I’ve recently seen more reports of some of these working OK now on the iPad.

How are your favorite Jailbreak iPad apps performing?

Cydia Background...

Cydia is a software application for the iPad OS that lets a user browse and download applications for a jailbroken iPad or iPod Touch. It was developed by Jay Freeman (also known as "saurik").

Cydia provides a more user-friendly graphical user interface for some open-source software-installation tools originally developed for Linux (specifically APT, and the dpkg package management system). Cydia's repositories allow the installation of software packages, most of which are available to download at no cost. Cydia also includes the Cydia Store, which offers a number of applications for sale. Both free and paid software packages are downloaded directly to an iPad or iPod Touch device, to the same location as Apple's pre-installed applications (the /Applications/ directory).

Cydia is named after the insect Cydia pomonella, a moth whose larva infests apples.

Features: When applications submitted to the official App Store are not approved, developers sometimes put those applications in sources accessible through APT, which are commonly installed directly in iPad OS using the Cydia interface. Notable is a Google Voice implementation originally developed by a third-party; Google's own version of the application was initially rejected but is currently being reviewed by Apple.

Cydia Store: Cydia allows users to add custom sources to APT, which allows users to choose download locations of packages. There are numerous sources available in community source packs, and private sources can also be added manually. These packages (applications) for jailbroken iPads and iPod Touches can often function on a deeper level than Apple-approved applications because they have the ability to access any part of the hardware or file system. This allows for themes, file browsers, video recording on the pre-3gs, and system-wide modification to all apps installed on an iPad.

In March 2009, Freeman introduced a way for developers to sell applications via Cydia. Users may use Amazon Payments or PayPal to purchase items from the store. Unlike App Store applications, applications available through the Cydia interface are not controlled by DRM unless the developer chooses to add their own protective measures. The proof of payment is linked to a Google or Facebook account in case users move to a new iPod Touch or iPad device or the device is bricked or un-jailbroken.

  1. 2 minutes with the right application.
    And, there's not really "professional" jailbreakers. Anyone who takes your money for it is taking you for a ride.

  2. Hi. I've jailbreaked my ipad, and I have cydia and installous to get the apps. But i've got a question. Having jaildbreaked the ipad, can I register in the apple store without any problems? Because sometimes there are some free apps that I can't find at cydia or installous and I could get it there, but I'm affaid that the register at the apple store somehow interfere without the jailbreaking. Sory if the question is kind if basic, mas I'm kind if a rookie in these matters.

  5. The only jailbreak app that is worth the experience is MyWi. Other than that, not really worth it unless you want to explore their 3000+ "themes"... woopee. Ok, maybe Intelliscreen too.

  11. dont do it. worth it? maybe on an iphone. your ipad alrdy costed you (or your loved ones) the hard earned grinding cash and now your intentions are to "jail break" into these devices. your better off doing it on an itouch/iphone. and BTW, if anything were to happen to the ipad during the process of jailbreaking, your warranty will be voided and should your ipad not even start up or malfunctions, youll feel like a piece of sh1t when you want your money back at the Apple store.

  12. Lol previous writer .......... Nothing can happen !!!! Jailbreaking is legal and so easy to do, don't worry nothing can happen. If your ipad crashed, just plug it again into itunes and restore. After this Jailbreak is gone and software is 100% original again.

  13. I wasn't going to jailbreak my iPad...until today. padgadget.com tells me about 24 apps on sale, which I can review but not buy because they are available at the US itunes store, but not in Hong Kong (where I live). So....I buy a legit iPad but I cannot buy most apps? iTunes store sucks...bring on the free apps
