Add Source Cydia Repos 10 tweaks

Yesterday, I found this thread on Reddit and was reminded of how many great jailbreak tweaks exist outside of Cydia’s default repos. Of course, developers like Ryan Petrich are well-known for their beta repos, but there are some other lesser-known repos that you should be aware of as well. Here’s a list of ten jailbreak tweaks that are available outside of the popular BigBoss and ModMyi repos.

Alarmy

Displays the most recent upcoming alarm on the Lock screen.

Kodi

Allows you to install a full working version of Kodi (formerly XBMC) on your iPhone. Kodi lets your stream videos from your local PC and from third-party sources. It’s also a great way to tap into an HD Homerun device on your local network.

So that’s 10 excellent tweaks (or apps in the case of Kodi) that you won’t find on the default Cydia repos. To download these tweaks, you’ll need to add their corresponding repos to your list of Cydia sources. Remember, you can do that from the Sources tab → Edit → Add, then type in the repo address.

What do you think about this list of 10 tweaks? Are there any tweaks that you think should be included that weren’t? Drop us a line down below in the comments.

    Mikoto !!!!

    • Andy

      I don’t know why he didn’t mention mikoto or NO PLS RECOVERY from Karen’s Pineapple Repo, even though it’s clearly one of the repos he has added on Cydia. At least they actually add something useful to iOS, instead he shows off “RoundedSwitcherCards”

  • Screenshots of each tweak will help users/readers to get better demonstration.

  • Vinny Perez

    Please tell me that this is not the best “messages color” tweak for ios8 I need more optione . Can anyone offer a much better & in depth tweak for customizing the stock messages app. Much obliged.

    • Carlos Medina

      Message+ and message customizer

  • Bunnat Sek

    any tweak that make email app be able to attach any file from ifile or dropbox..?

  • @nc0der

    Jeff can you name out the tweak to reply whatsapp message thru notification just lyk stock message app for iOS 8

  • romeodesigns

    The conversation history in QR is a good tweak and I’m surprised it’s not a standard stock feature. Apple failed with that one.

  • enifome

    Any call recorder?

    • Nick Dee

      yes, Audio Recorder. record all phone calls

  • Guest

  • i like this blog.

    • Mark Kramer

  • romeodesigns

    The url for qrconversation isn’t working, is it correct?

    • Jason Douglas Haas

      Yes.

    I was really excited to get ReachAll but it turns out it’s only averrable for iPhones with Touch ID. I hate it when developers do this. They hardly care about older devices and the iPhone 5 isn’t even that old!

    • mike

      If you’re talking about ReachApp, it’s because pre-TouchID devices don’t natively have Reachability, so they can’t invoke ReachApp. Try the Tweak ReachAll. It lets pre-TouchID devices gain Reachability support via Activator, and it works flawlessly with ReachApp.

  • I was really excited to try out ReachApp but it turns out you need the iPhone 5s or the iPhone 6. I hate it when developers makes tweaks exclusive to a certain iPhone model.

    • SharP EYE

      Actually you don’t. Just download ReachAll (tweak that enables reachability on older devices) and then ReacApp.

  • mike

    I really appreciate this video; solves a few of the problems I’ve been noticing lately.

    Edit: Showing a review of VideoPane would be very useful, not many are aware of this tweak.

  • Cristian B

    Minimum Host Blocker should be here too but whatever

  • solidsephiroth

    All I want is BiteSMS or a worthy substitute. Messages+ just doesn’t cut it.

  • Thank you Jeff for listening to my request.

  • iPhoneWINS

    weather badge is great
