Free Jailbreak Tweaks For Your iPad

Now that you have jailbroken your iPad and installed Cydia, you aren't sure what to do next. Well the biggest reason to jailbreak your iPad, is to install Cydia tweaks to either customize your life...or make it easier. Below I have highlighted some of the best free Cydia tweaks for your iPad with an quick overview of their use.


36 Reasons to jailbreak your iPad:

These tweaks can be downloaded from Cydia for free

Action Menu - Enhances the copy and paste functionality for iOS including pasteboard favorites.

Activator - Assigns screen gestures and button press combinations to do a multitude of actions, from launching apps to controlling the iPad application.

Animate - For those running a jailbreak using @i0n1c's untether then this tweak adds animated boot logo capabilities to your iPad. There are many to choose from in Cydia, I use the "Animate Apple".

Auto Location - Turns the GPS on your iPad on whenever an app requests location services and off again when it is closed.

BackBoard - This one can save many different layouts and configurations of your icons. It also lets you apply, update, or delete them as required.

Black Keyboard - Turns you iPad keyboard to your favorite color... Black!

Browser Changer - Allows you to switch the default browser for YouTube, Google Maps, from Mobile Safari to another 3rd party browser. A must for users of Atomic and iCab powerusers.

Bolt - Eliminates the battery icon in your status bar, except when charging, then you will see a bolt. You can turn on the battery percentage to know how much charge you have.

BTStackMouse - use a bluetooth mouse or Apple Magic Trackpad with your iPad, I use this one often.

BytaFont - Apple has nice fonts in iOS, even patentworthy ones (Noteworthy)...but change is good sometimes.
BytaFont has hundreds of compatible fonts are available on Cydia.

ChangeCarrier - Customize the carrier name shown on your iPad to something better. nice way to personalize your iPad.

CyDelete - This allows the ability to remove Cydia apps like any other apps store app. Make them wiggle and press the cross to remove just like iOS intended.

FakeClockUp - Allows you to change the default animation speed of iOS graphics. Amazingly, by increasing the animation speed the whole iPad SEEMS to perform much faster but it's an illusion. Put iOS in slow-motion too, you need to add the moyashi repo to Cydia to locate this tweak - http://hitoriblog.com/apt/

FastCopy - This tweak removes a tiny delay built into iOS before the copy,paste popup appears.

FolderCloser - This tweak will close stock iOS folders after you launch an app...

FullForce - This tweak tricks iPhone apps into thinking they are iPad apps so they run more natively.

iBlank - Create transparent icons which are blank on the springboard for unique layouts.

Icon Renamer - This one changes the name of an app on your springboard.

iSH**** - Save your SHSH Blobs locally on your iPad.

ListLauncher - Adds to the Spotlight page an alphabetical list of apps for quick and easy access. I hardly ever used Spotlight until this...


ManualCorrect - No longer with iOS substitute a spelling suggestion as you type. If you want the correction, you tap it.

MultiIconMover - This tweak allows you to "tag" multiple icons to move at once. Tap on each one as they wiggle and press the home button to move all the tagged icons to the current location screen, works with folders too.

NoLockScreen - Removes the lock screen if you don't have a passcode.

No Not Charging - Removes "Not Charging" text in the status bar.

OpenNotifier - Customizable status bar to eliminate the annoying pop-up.
