We all know the story. There’s so many can’t-live-without apps in Cydia. But once you install everything, your iPhone becomes a mess of apps competing for (system) power.

A few months later, you’ve sacrificed speed for functionality. Here’s my list of the 5 Cydia downloads that I could be happy with…

  1. Action Menu
  2. MultiIcon Mover
  3. SBSettings
  4. Wi-Fi Sync
  5. Notified

With these 5 apps/tweaks, I could continue to use my device as a high performing productivity machine and still get some of my iOS wishlist fulfilled.

What are your 5?

Optional: 3 Guilty pleasure tweaks that you know you don’t need but still love.

    After installing SBSettings or iBlacklist on jailbroken iPhone 3GS iOS 4.1, it’s on safe mode. I must remove SBSettings. Anyone has the problem like me?

    • AJ

      • Ga Che

        I removed SBSettings and iBlacklist, and reinstalled SBSettings and IP is always in safe mode. Have u installed SBSettings? Is it OKie?

    • XxL3THALxX

      SBSettings makes my iPhone crash everytime I use the remove background function.

      • That was a 4.1 bug. The dev updated it today, and it now works fine.

      Yes you can upate just make sure you sign in with your iTunes acct on the pc your using and transfer purchase to that pc you might want to save photos and numbers before restore and you might lose your music if you didn’t buy from iTunes but you get to update

    In order:

    1. SBSettings (and assorted plugins)
    2. LockInfo (and assorted plugins)
    3. zToggle (I like having a wallpaper and the multi-processing available)
    4. TetherMe (stupid Rogers won’t allow people with data plans of < 500MB a month to tether)
    5. ShakeToUndo Killer (for the odd occasion where I am typing and walking)

    • I hadn’t heard about ShakeToUndo Killer. I need that ASAP!

  • Dina

    iBlacklist DOES work on my iPhone 4. I like Notifier, SBSettings and a few other lock screens & SMS ringtones too.

    Thumbs up! for ‘MultiIcon Mover’. I did not know about this app, and I think it really addresses a basic use of the GUI. Thanks for suggesting it.
    Cheers from France 🙂
