With the recent release of the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2, the time has come for many of us to install some of our favorite jailbreak apps and tweaks again. Because there was no jailbreak for your iDevice for a few months, you might have been out of touch with the tweaks that recently came out.

But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We handpicked 100 jailbreak tweaks we think you should check out. Take your time to peruse this list. We’re confident you’ll find a few tweaks interesting enough to install on your freshly jailbroken iPhone 4S or iPad 2…

If that’s too overwhelming, we did all the legwork for you and have selected the best jailbreak tweaks for iPad and 10 awesome tweaks for iPhone 4S.

Note that all these tweaks are not necessarily “must have” tweaks. They are tweaks that were released in the last six months that we think you should know about and take a look at. So don’t be surprised if you don’t see BiteSMS, LockInfo, or SBSettings in there…

We’re always on top of the new jailbreak apps and tweaks coming out, so stay tuned for more coverage. In the meantime, let us know which of these apps you would recommend downloading.

  • Thanks for this, this was very helpful indeed because i was trying to find the best ones for the 4S

  • Anonymous

    Wow. Awesome list. Just a small mistake, the link to iKeyWi is wrong. It’s pointing to SwitchCleaner.

  • Is there a tweak to re-add the 3G toggle in settings?

    Also I was wondering if its possible to take the baseband of, say, iOS 5.1b3 and add it into iOS 5.0.1b?

    • Anonymous

      I’m sure if it was possible to switch out basebands they would have done it already and there wouldn’t be the constant stream of people that harp on about when an unlock is coming out lol

      • Well I’m trying to deduce why I keep getting invalid sim on ios 5.0.1 on my iphone 4s. I did find a workaround by updating (not restoring) my firmware to 5.1b3 which has the newer baseband. My phone is factory unlocked. Anyway, seeing as 5.1 cannot be jailbroken (and also the only the newer firmware with the 3G toggle) and 5.0.1 keeps giving me invalid sim, i think if it was possible to switch off the 3g antenna maybe that might fix the invalid sim issues. But I definitely know 5.1b3 contains some files that fix the invalid sim/no sim card issues on the 4S.

        I really need a jailbreak. Its not even for the apps. Its for those beautifully little tweaks!

      • Restore to the second release of 5.0.1 9A406 I think is the version. This has a baseband upgrade that is supposed to fix this issue.

    • I just use the 3G toggle in SBSettings and it works fine.

  • Anonymous

    hahahahah “no, thank iDB!”

  • THANKS! great list!

  • Anonymous

    At least 80 you really don’t need to know about, some are a waste of time and serve no purpose other than draining the battery and slowing the phone lol but thanks for the list 🙂

    • I’m sure those 80 tweaks are here because batteryhog and rameater were such popular tweaks.

  • I hate how SBSettings makes notification center laggy on my 3GS 🙁

    • Anonymous

      so why dont you remove sbsettings toggles from the nc? isn’t it enough to have in the drop down sbsettings windows?

  • I’m gonna go minimalistic this go round so here are “possible” installs for my 4S:

    pull to dismiss – maybe
    PDANet – required
    Call bar – probably
    iFile – required
    3G unrestrictor (plus the toggle)
    UISettings – is this customizable? Does it support 3G unrestrictor toggles?
    Terminal – required
    SBSettings – depends on how useful UISettings is

    Definitely no winter board! – gonna theme manually that includes info.plists, icons, UI elements, and fonts.

  • Has anyone seen the new Doritos commercial that the guy uses “Siri” to get him more Doritos. You guys should check it out!

  • There is a better blurred Notification Center in Ryan Petrich’s repo.

  • Hello iDB. Is there an unlock for the iPhone4s

  • I have no idea what this website has against LockInfo. Time and time again it is ommited and completely ignored when discussing jailbreak tweaks.
    LockInfo is one of the most customizable, encompassing and in-depth tweaks. Check it out.

    • We don’t have anything against LockInfo. This is a list of newer tweaks (6 months or less).

  • After looking at this list, i realized how far IDB have come over the years =) great job and keep it up

  • Anonymous

    Eh Sebastian, I didn’t know that CydiaBulletin is already released 😉

  • bitesms not on your list?

    • “Note that all these tweaks are not necessarily “must have” tweaks. They are tweaks that were released in the last six months that we think you should know about and take a look at. So don’t be surprised if you don’t see BiteSMS, LockInfo, or SBSettings in there…”

  • I love these lists you post on iDB. Can you do a top repo list too?

    • This!

      And also, I’d love it if you guys would post a breakdown of exactly which tweaks you each personally use on your phones.

      A list of 100 is useful, but I’m running into a lot of conflicts and buggy usage. A list of ” Here are the 29 tweaks I use, and they all work together” would be equally as nice!

  • Tanay Topaç

    You should check them out and definitely add to your list:

    – Bitesms
    – Safari upload enabler
    – AnyAttach
    – Sleipnizer for safari

    Hey Sebastien, Ipsum is redirecting me to AllMail instead.

  • Jailbreaks were made for us to unlock Apple’s hidden features, and they were made free for everyone.. I personally jailbreak for Installous and the cracked apps from the AppStore. Isn’t it annoying when some of the best jailbreak tweaks cost money? Now I need a jailbreak to the jailbreak, to download those jailbreak tweaks cracked…

      you should go to hell

    • Poor people are always gonna want things for free. Not too much you can do about it.

    • Yehudah Griffin

      There are FREE apps and PAY apps. You should always support the hard work of others, that’s what we do here. For you to admit to steal PAY apps, you should be hanging from your thumbs!! Bad Ahmed, real bad.

    • OMG I totally agree with you. Isn’t it also annoying when you take your car to the mechanics, they service your car, and then they want to charge you? It’s like…Why are you charging me? Why don’t you just work for free??

      */sarcasm/*

      • Yeah, and I hate it when I go into Wal-Mart, load up my cart, go through the checkout, and they have the nerve to ask me to pay for the goods that I want to take home with me!

        I am completely entitled to those groceries because my ethics and values say so – therefore they need to respect my immoral lifestyle and let me have the goods!

        What is wrong with the world?!

    • serious question: do you receive a paycheck for going to work or just volunteer out of the kindness of your heart

      or are you like 12 and don’t understand how some people have student loans that need paid back for their computer science degree (which, mind you, is part of the reason these tweaks even exist in the first place)

  • Anonymous

    OK, these are only TWEAKS and you included several of the useless/pointless tweaks that Jeff like to show us. But now, we need a list of APPS so you can include iFile, biteSMS, SBSettings, PkgBackup, Activator and many others great apps.

  • jose castro

    u forgot lockinfo

  • Luke Row

    Just what the doctor ordered.

    Thank you iDB

  • Looked all over Cydia and can’t find “cydiabulletin”. Different Repo maybe?

    • It hasn’t been released yet. My bad.

  • Your link for automatic dictation goes to grid tab.

  • wow….nice article !!!

  • Fantastic list, installed 2 new ones I didnt know about

  • How about the best FREE tweaks?

  • 100 tweaks and you can’t mention OpenNotifier?

    • Read paragraph 4 again

      • Wait which paragraph number am I supposed to read? I only read the first two words of your comment, before posting mine. Isn’t that how this game works?

        Also, why didn’t you guys mention LockInfo and BiteSMS in your ‘article’?! This is a travesty! #angrynerd

  • Anonymous

    Is there any tweaks that speeds up respring?

  • Dan

    imo, the best essential tweaks were not mentionned in this article, and a lot were useless since they are incorporated in springtomize 2 which is already in this list.
    ie:
    bitesms, folderenhancer, gridlock, perpagehtml, ifile, infinidock, iretina+, killbackground, sbsticknotes, sleepfx etc.

    • “Note that all these tweaks are not necessarily “must have” tweaks. They are tweaks that were released in the last six months that we think you should know about and take a look at. So don’t be surprised if you don’t see BiteSMS, LockInfo, or SBSettings in there…”

  • do you know any tweak that will show phone usage and stand by time on ipod touch as on iphone….thanks in advance….

    • Dan

      the app battery doctor does that

  • We want qtweeter… hope they update soon!! Also BiteSMS is the best!!

  • Anonymous

    Perfect. This is all.

  • Awesome list Sebastien! Thank you very much! I feel I owe you guys $$ for all the help you provide!!

  • Anonymous

    Nice I’m bout to download now

  • Still missing bitesms , one of the best apps!

  • I Was So Glad To Read This Info. I Was Looking For A Alternative To My “Locktopus” That Wasn’t Working On My iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 Just ReJailBroken.. Thanks Alot.. Peace ~T.W.C.~

  • I love intelliscreenx but it isnt ready for ipad2 yet. If you install it and reboot, it causes a layout problem on springboard. intelliborn I know is working on it but I thought I would get the warning out to everyone.

    • Looks like intelliscreenx pushed out an update to fix this issue and it runs just fine now on my iPad.

  • Been looking for an article like this for a while. Good stuff.

  • Thanks for reminding me why I don’t bother to jailbreak. Can’t say a single one of those tweaks appeals to me, plus I’m happy to pay a couple of bucks for my apps so I don’t need to jailbreak and pirate them.

  • How do I get weather in the notification center for my iPad2? I installed NC weather but nothing happens

    • I was wondering the same thing too after installing Belfry today.

    • try turning it on through settings-> notifications->

  • Thanks, Sebastian. Awesome job here!

  • Ryan Hirschberg

    Forgot a couple good ones here: folder enhancer (folders within folders), BBsettings, InfiniDock, Infinifolders and spire. Maybe these have been out longer than 6 months. Just thought they were worth a mention.

  • Thanks IDB.

    i’m using the following tweaks.

    Spingtomize 2:
    IntelliScreenX:
    SiriToggles:
    OpenSiri:
    OpenSiri:
    Ipsum:
    CallBar:

  • coLin

    @seb481:disqus you should make this list all over again now with the new iOS 7 tweaks available 🙂
