Now that the iPhone 4S has been officially jailbroken, it’s time to talk about jailbreak tweaks. In particular, what are some of the best tweaks that are available now for the iPhone 4S?

If you’re a long time jailbreaker, you no doubt have your staple tweaks and apps that you will install within minutes of successfully jailbreaking your 4S. But if you’re a new iPhone owner, you may be wondering which tweaks you should download first.

Whether you’re an iPhone veteran or a newbie, stop inside and share your thoughts on our top 10 list…

Safari UniBar

Description: This tweak allows you to use the Safari address bar as a combined search and URL bar similar to Google Chrome.
Price: Free
Additional Coverage.

StayOpened + PasswordPilot

Description: These are actually two separate tweaks, but they work so well together that I count them as one. StayOpened keeps the App Store opened after a purchase, and PasswordPilot saves your password so you don’t have to continuously enter your password for purchases.
Price: Both free
Additional Coverage.

IntelliScreenX

Description: The ultimate tweak for Twitter, Facebook, Email, RSS, and SMS all in iOS 5’s Notification Center. If you care about information that’s easily accessible, it’s simply a must have. It also comes with Messages+ which is an enhancement to the stock SMS system.
Price: Free Trial / $9.99
Additional Coverage.

Springtomize 2

Description: It only does everything. No, seriously, it does everything but cook your dinner. And with a few updates from Filippo Bigarella, it might even do that.
Price: $2.99
Additional Coverage.

Activator

Description: A staple tweak that a lot of other developers use as a means to invoke their own tweaks. Activator was updated with iOS 5’s built in Twitter support, so it’s extremely handy for sending tweets from anywhere.
Price: Free
Additional Coverage.

3G Unrestrictor

Description: FaceTime, iCloud, HQ YouTube, and PhotoStream, all over 3G. Need we say more?
Price: $3.99
Additional Coverage.

Action Menu

Description: A copy and paste menu enhance that allows you to save favorite items for easy copy and paste.
Price: Free
Additional Coverage.

FolderEnhancer

Description: Add folders within folders and increase the app limit within folders to infinite. Includes paging, and visual customization as well. A much-needed tweak if you are a heavy App Store downloader.
Price: $1.99
Additional Coverage.

Siri Mic Colors

Description: Allows you to change the Microphone color of Siri.
Price: Free
Additional Coverage.

What do you think? Did we leave out your favorite tweak? Let us know if you agree with out top 10 list in the comment section below.

Update: It also looks like I forgot to mention one of my personal faves, CallBar. What’s funny is that I was using it while composing this article. CallBar gives you a better way of managing phone calls, and it keeps the Phone app from stealing focus from your current task.
Price: $1.99 on sale until 12AM on January 26th, afterwards back to its normal $3.99 price.

  • Where’s Zephy by @Chpwn?

    • Have you been using it? I only like multitasking swipe, the side swipe gets annoying in almost every app. and sometimes takes a few tries when I actually want it to work

      • Yea well actually i’ve disabled the Swiping between apps i hate it;P i only like the Multitasking.

  • Trying to use Springtomize 2 to set 5 or 6 icons in the dock…but it doesn’t seem to be letting me. Any ideas?

    • make sure you actually enable the “Use Custom Number” button above the “Icons in Dock” number.

      if that doesnt work… just use infinidock

  • I wish for a windows Jailbreak. Most of us have PC’s. 🙁

    • Open seetings app…turn on the APN ..it’s a new line about 3/4 down turn on..and just hit the home button after it will reboot and that app will change to Cydia app

      • i would love to do that but I don’t think thats my problem

        Any suggestions??

        turn off device well plugged in then turn device back on

      • Ok …turn off the phone and turn off your mac …reboot both ..don’t have your sync cable pluged in you mac ether.. Now after reboot connect you phone ..open Absinthe ..with any look that should do it ..
        If that’s no good you could try a restore with iTunes and try all over again..something could of gone really wrong..

      • reboot your mac. then try again. make your sure your mac is fully updated.

      • i would love to do that but I don’t think thats my problem

    best app from cydia for iPhone 4s is the hands free app…. i just simply say siri and siri is activated great app… works like a charm

    • And you battery is going to drain..it’s alway listening for voice controlls..it’s a great idea but is the battery drain worth it ?

    • It works but so does your battery. Tell me if you still like it in a couple of days

        first thing i installed…. been using it like crazy…battery life still at in high 80’…so far 5 hours jailbroke phone at 94% battery life

  • @K1ngLe0
    Does this actually work or is it just a suggestion?

  • @Burge
    OMG Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you,
    haha yes i finally got it to start.
    dude thank you so much! 😀

    • Just seen this…haha you sounded so happy…and your welcome..

  • Bryce Haymond

    How about Hands-Free Control? Activate Siri by just saying “Siri.” Don’t press and hold the home button anymore. Can also use with Activator to voice-enable anything, hands-free! Choose any spoken keyword as the trigger.

    sbsettings… ‘nuf said.

  • you should include all time favs of many ppl…. like iblacklist, bitesms, tonesfx, notifier+, barrel, allmail, androidlock xt, asktosend, color keyboard, delete world, dietbar, ezdecline, gridlock, icon renamer, ipsum,mark that message, multiicon mover, nowlistening, password pilot, pulltodismiss, screen dimmer, snooze or stop, tapdewiggle, zephyr…….

  • What about My-Fi? (Is that what is was called? Not been on Cydia for ages)

  • I would also highly recommend TetherMe for anyone who wants to unlock the iOS-native tethering feature. With the iPhone 4S on AT&T’s network, speeds should be a little faster than the iPhone 4.

  • We are on the same page! Just not sure out Siri Mic Colors since I’m avoiding winter board for now. Maybe I shouldn’t worry about it. I also like custom NC background and I pair lockinfo with intelliscreen.

    Winterboard or dreamboard guys?

    • Dreamboard is much better. It’s so much more stable than Winterboard, plus the themes are much much nicer. But just beware, most of the great ones are paid and they require lots of work to get right. I tried it out but I just simply don’t have the time to dedicate to playing with the themes’ files.

  • Does Springtomize 2 work on iPad 2?
