Yes, we’re excited that the iPhone 4S finally has a jailbreak, but let’s not forget the iPad 2! Yes, the iPad 2, along with the iPhone 4S benefited from the release of the A5 jailbreak.

Since it’s been about 6 months since the last iPad 2 jailbreak was released, we felt it appropriate to discuss some of the best jailbreak tweaks available for the iPad 2…


Description: Simply one of the best tweaks for the iPad. This Ryan Petrich creation allows you to add Retina Display for iPhone apps running in 2X mode on the iPad. It makes a huge difference with certain apps, and is a must have if you use a lot of iPhone-only apps on the iPad.
Price: $2.99
Additional Coverage.


Description: iCade owners would be silly not to drop $6.99 on Blutrol. This tweak essentially makes it possible to play any game with on screen controls with the iCade. It even works with other Bluetooth peripherals, and promises WiiMote support in the future. If you’re an iCade owner, what are you waiting for? Download this immediately.
Price: $6.99

Description: Works just as well on the iPad as it does on the iPhone. Arguably one of the best jailbreak tweaks in history.
Price: $9.99

FullScreen for Safari (iPad)

Description: Browsing on the iPad’s 10″ screen is nice, especially if you’re coming from an iPhone, but browsing on an iPad with true full screen mode is even better! That’s where Full Screen for Safari comes it. It allows you to remove the menu bar at the top of Safari for a true full screen browsing experience.
Price: $1.29

Granted, there aren’t as many fantastic must-haves for the iPad when compared to the iPhone, but these are definitely tweaks that should be in anyone’s iPad repertoire. Of course, there are other tweaks that you will want to try like iFile, biteSMS, Activator, etc. but when it comes to tweaks that cater specifically to the iPad’s form factor, these tweaks can’t be beat.

What about you? Did we leave out a certain tweak that you feel should have made it in our list? Discuss below, and let us know.

  • Multifl0w is very great, and of course iFile!

  • There are countless of tweaks i am installing right now but servers seems to be overloaded =(

    Especially downloading themes, timeout always

  • Dan

    Missing a lot of tweaks here, a more exhaustive list would nice eventually 🙂

  • I would also highly recommend, “ProTube HD” because it’s the best YouTube client ever released for iOS 5.

  • What about iUsers?

  • IntelliscreenX works until you shut off your iPad and turn it back on, then it messes with your springboard and destroys the locations of your icons and folders and makes icons really small. On there website it says it’s not compatible with the iPad yet but there working on it.

    • Kok Hean

      they’re :p


      • Anonymous

        Grammar :p

      • Correction. ‘Their’. 😉

        Dbl Grammar Fail bro! ;P

      • Kok Hean

        They are = they’re ≠ their

      • Spot on – I can’t respond to Kok Hean’s response as there is no reply button.

        However Kok Hean the original statement should have been “On their website” and NOT “On they are website” so you are still wrong bro.

      • To eToad: I think Kok Hean was referring to “‘they’re'” working on it,” not “‘their'” website,” so that would justify both of your corrections depending on where they were inserted.

      • Yup. I saw one u saw one. Lol! Should be ‘their website’ & ‘they’re working on it.’

  • Yay thanks for writing this. i have the iPad 2 but not the 4S haha so i was getting sick of all the siri tweaks

  • for all of those who are complaining about how Cydia is slow, think about this a new jailbreak was just released yesterday. the new jailbreak not only covers older devices but it also covers a new device that was never jailbroken before. So in addition to all the people that was downloading apps and tweaks, a whole new group of people just joined the community

  • I cant even get sbsettings….. Always says cannot locate

  • Hi Jeff,

    About RetinaPad, its really good tweak, very useful.
    But emoji icons not showing in keybord of apps using the tweak!!!!

  • @digitalchet, i could kill you right now
