FavoriteTweaks Cydia

Have you ever stumbled upon a new Cydia release that you wished to remember, but then later forgot about it? Wouldn’t it be cool if you could designate your favorite tweaks so that you could easily remember and find them later?

That’s the basic premise behind FavoriteTweaks, a new jailbreak tweak release from developer iMokhles. It allows you to save Cydia releases and manage them from one central location.

FavoriteTweaks requires iOS 8 and Cydia 1.1.19 or higher. After installing the tweak, you’ll find a new star icon in the upper right-hand corner of the main Cydia tab.

When you tap the star icon, you’ll be taken to your listing of favorite tweaks. Once there, you can use the ‘+’ sign in the upper right-hand corner to search for and add tweaks to your favorites.


Tapping on a favorite works exactly like you might assume, in that it takes you to the package description page of the tweak. You can also swipe on the name of the tweak and access additional options like Modify, Install, or Delete. Users can rearrange the items in the list of favorites by using a tap-hold-and-drag gesture to reorder the contents.

Some may question the use-case-scenario of FavoriteTweaks, but I think the situation outlined in the beginning of this post is its most apt use. It’s simply a place where you can store tweaks, installed or not, that you wish to access later.

What do you think about FavoriteTweaks? Would you consider using it in your Cydia workflow?

  • We need this by default.

    This and SwipeForMore are awesome tweaks, just tried both! Saudik should’ve implented these two a long time ago!

    • Why do you keep calling him Saudik? Haha. His name’s Saurik 🙂

      • Alberto Espinal

        Oh damn you are right, Thanks for the correction!!

    • czbird

      Do these two play nice toghether? I don’t want to mess up SwipeForMore by installing this one. Thanks.

      • Alberto Espinal

        Yes they do, i have them both in my iPhone 6Plus

  • Yes. By default, and also able to save in backups for restores.

    FavoriteTweaks Backup support submitted already to BigBoss should be available next refresh 😉

      Awesome. Yeah, if you can backup and restore for future iOS firmware will be excellent. Great tweak man! Keep up the great work.

      • czbird


  • Anyone else get the feeling the opening paragraph sounded like a cheesy sales pitch? Haha.

    • Thomas Meredith

      I thought the same thing!

  • czbird

    Useless until the list is included in backup and restore.

  • Kassem Ajjan

    isn’t out there a tweak for cydia that can show all packages all changes so every time that a tweak get updated will come to the top of the list and not only the new tweaks ?

  • Sunil John

    Crashes immediately when I try to add an app to Favorite tweaks

    • J™

      same here…

    • Zencowboy007

      Me too so deleted. It took away the Reload button as well that is handy. I just take screen shots of all tweaks/sources and upload to dropbox for backup.

  • Shamir Akida

    What is AniWeather source?

  • Does it save to your cydia account?

  • Sunil John

    Works well after the update
