Cydia restart springboard

Ho ho ho! We’re just days away from Christmas now, and it looks like Santa Claus already stopped by and dropped a bunch of gifts in the form of tweaks. Alright, I’ll admit this is a terrible intro but I needed to tie it in with Christmas somehow.

This past week was again quite a fruitful one in terms of jailbreak tweak releases as we count no less than 28 new tweaks. That’s at least what I have found out, but as I said before, this list is by no means a comprehensive one, as I’m sure a few tweaks here and there might have gone unnoticed. If that’s the case, make sure to share what tweak I forgot in the comment section.

    For those planning to Jailbreak on iOS 8.1.2 then I highly recommend adding this Cydia Source into Cydia after you jailbreak so you don’t have to manually input all those Cydia Sources manually. This will automatically add all the best Cydia Sources and give you access to all the best Cydia Tweaks, Themes and Apps for FREE with just a push of a button. Follow the steps below.

    1. Open Cydia

    2. Tap Sources

    3. Tap Edit

    4. Tap Add

    5. Type this url in the box (cydiasource , n e t) without the spaces and replace coma for a dot in the url.

    6. Tap “Add Source”

    7. Install the package labelled “All Sources”.

    This will give you all the best Cydia Sources to have access to all the best Tweaks, Apps and Themes for FREE.

    • johnpowers

    • susanb34

      thank hun for this amazing repo source. seems like it has everything i need

    • Scott Curry

      Isn’t this piracy, which iDB definitely DOESN’T condone?

      • Brian Brown


  • Merman123

    On iRelease, there’s a typo. Should say “quickly quit” instead of “quickly quick” 🙂

    • Fixed. Thank you

      • Guest

        Yo, Sebastien. What’s this I heard about you sucking Jeff’s cock last night?

      • GuyBey0ndC00L


    • Diego Milano

      Hahaha, although I have to admit it looks hilarious to the eye. 😀

  • Steve Jones

    Top 5 Cydia Tweaks 2014
    1. Activator
    2. bigU Movies
    3. Cydget
    4. iRelease
    5. Barrel

    • Cody

      And those tweaks have been available for years.

    • John Davis

      I just watched The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies from the bigU Movies app. I found it either on xsellize repo, insanelyi repo, Appcake or Zeusmos, i’m not sure but that movie was awesome.

    • Steve Jones

      It doesn’t matter cuz not everyone had their iOS device or have been jailbroken for years. These are all must have tweaks I mentioned great for any season jailbreak vet or noob.

    • techraxx

      Those are my top fav tweaks as well

    • susanb34

      i’ll be sure to keep my eye out for these tweaks

    • NP92

      Bigu movies? Is not free Right? Moviebox not better?

    • Out5poken

      Can only find bigU movies for iPhone on cydia, i need it for iPad. Also can you airplay to chrome cast with bigU?

    • notewar

      THe only downside for bigU is that it’s contents only limited to movie…whereas Moviebox has much more contents but it’s super slow

      • Rigs101

        HEY!! you almost made me smack my screen with that avatar that was good haha

    • Thanh

      lol I got no credit card for bigU

    • Raanor

      What about Springtomize? It’s got Barrel built in, so just replace Barrel with Springtomize and move to #1 to fix the list ;).

  • Lurker22

    Yeah, nothing really that vital or interesting.

  • iKhalil

    What is that tweak which make an application multi-user?

    • Svs


      • iKhalil

        Thank you!, but it seems that I have some stuff incompatible

  • Blake

    What’s the best and efficient way to jailbreak iOS 8.1 on 6+ and iPad Air 2? I know there’s a few ways just want the best one, want to jailbreak both!

    • Spycer0

      use the Taig tool 😉

    • Wood1030

      Taig is the best and easiest at this point. might as well update to 8.12 and jb using Taig…however, it’s only Windows compatiple…Macs need not apply..for now

      • Spycer0

        But you can use it in a vm though…

      • Blake

        What’s changed since 8.1 to 8.1.2? So the taig tool is safe?

      • Spycer0

        If I’m not mistaken then some ringtone bug was fixed and yes the tool is fine, no virusses.

  • Wood1030

    I’m still trying to find a reliable Ram/memory cleaner for 64 bit iPhone 6. Are there any available?

    • Spycer0

      If ur jailbroken: use iCleaner from Cydia, if not I don’t know.

      • Wood1030

        yes, I’m jb’d, but does it work with an activator action/method or is it a separate application that i have to open to clear memory?

      • Vighnesh Manick

        Its a separate app that you have to open to clear

      • Wood1030

        hmm…not sure if that’s the type i’m looking for. On my iPhone 5 I use FreeRam7 that works great and can be used as an activator action but it only works for 32 bit devices…i’m looking for something similar for iPhone 6 (64 bit), but i’ll give icleaner i try. Thanks guys

      • Wood1030

        Well, I installed icleaner and went through the cleaning process and it didn’t really seem to make a difference with clearing system Ram/memory. Something must be eating all of my system resources up. I rarely show more than 150mb of ram available, even with no apps open. It would be nice if there was an app (like FreeRam7) that could clear up the clog of limited memory. 🙁

      • Set it to cleanup language files, keyboards, non-retina and @3x (iPhone 6 Plus) images and you’ll free up a ton of storage. iCleaner is a must have app / tweak IMHO…

      • Spycer0

        right, it’s an app

  • techfreak23

    Messages customiser was also just updated, but it’s an early beta version for iOS 8.

    • Aiden McGinnis

      Is it on a seperate repo?

  • Itzkhaoz

    Yea where is he…?

    • Chris

      Everyone needs a holiday

  • Diego Milano

    The most relevant release or update this week will be Auxo for iOS. I can’t wait to get the new Dynamic Switcher and the Quick Switcher!

  • Anmol Malhotra

    Dear Seb sir ,
    In Carpe Diem there’s a typo. It should be “Reachability” not “Rachability.” 🙂

  • Tommy Trinh

    just waiting for Auxo iOS 8

  • Emmy Farrell

    You didn’t link your ReachTheNyanCat review in next to the tweak.

  • SteveZ

    Only need AUXO!

  • Rahimo

  • Anyone aware of any apps or tweaks responsible for killing notification widgets; 3 of mine are dead and I can’t find a suspect.

  • Anh Phan

    I’m really thankful for your response but BlurSlide2 doesn’t work for me. On the lockscreen, there’s just no slider anymore after activating the tweak. Do you know what to do?

    • aidenh37

      No, sorry.
