TweakHub 5

TweakHub is one of the most impressive Cydia-centric tweaks that I’ve seen since Cydia opened up to accept substrate modifications. It allows you to find new packages based on the apps that you have installed on your device. It also allows you to rearrange the available Cydia tabs via an Edit option similar to the older versions of the Music app.

If you’re looking for a new tweak to show off the power that Cydia now possess, then look no further. TweakHub can be found on a special third-party repo, and the details are in this post.

First of all, the important stuff. If you want to download TweakHub and try it for yourself, then simply add the following repo to your list of Cydia sources:

You can also click this link directly from your jailbroken iPhone or iPad to be taken directly to the package on Cydia without adding the repo.

Keep in mind that you’ll need to be running Cydia 1.1.19 or higher in order to benefit from this tweak.

Once TweakHub is installed, you’ll notice a new More tab in the bottom right-hand corner of Cydia. This More tab actually supplants the Search tab, but as you’ll see, you can still find the Search option from within the More tab.

In the upper right-hand corner of the More tab is a Edit button. This Edit button, as mentioned, invokes an interface similar to what we’ve seen before in the iTunes and Music app. This allows you to replace and rearrange all of the tabs found at the bottom of Cydia. You completely customize the order of the tabs as well, as you can see from the image below.

TweakHub tabs

Along with Search, you’ll also find a TweakHub section, which is the main part of the release. The TweakHub section will list all of the apps that you have installed on your phone, and lets you see all of the tweaks that are designed for each particular app.

For example, under the Safari section you’ll find Safari Downloader+, and under the Twitter section, you’ll find Twitter++. TweakHub is a great way to discover all of the tweaks that work with the apps, both stock and third-party, that you have installed on your device.

Never before has it been truly easy to find tweaks directly from Cydia without having to look at outside sources. Sure, the Cydia front page lists a few apps and tweaks, but it’s not nearly as comprehensive as this. With TweakHub installed, discovery is a real part of the Cydia experience.

What do you think about TweakHub? Are you excited about all of the awesome new Cydia tweaks that are slowly becoming available?

      You should invest in a lifeproof fre power. 130$ but we’ll spend

  • Direct link is fixed. Apparently you have to use https for it to work. Still trying to figure out all of the particulars with these new deep links. 🙂

  • I have a special video coming soon that talks about this. Stay tuned,

  • socrates

    Looks like the tweak author drew influence from Flex.

    Good thinking.

  • craig

    this is a nice tweak! now for future update all we need is this to show cydia tweaks that work with cydia tweaks, for example if you got zeppelin installed then show all packages that work with zeppelin etc 🙂

  • Damian

    I am finally speechless…it is happening at last

  • jilex

    One of the best jailbreak tweaks ever!

  • Eni

    An Albanian dev that does an amazing tweak :))

  • Harold Merriman

    worked for me, like a charm!

  • LOL

    Oh Hell naw. Saurik just stole TweakHub idea and put in directly in Cydia lol. Madness!! There’s a new section in Cydia…

    • xipoxp

      don’t know if Saurik actually stole the TweakHub idea or he just worked on this feature at the same time by coincidence.
      Yes, I just upgraded my cydia and decided to delete tweakhub… but tweakhub is really a nice tweak, cos it is much easier to find some tweaks that I didn’t know they were there.

      • omakad

        Cydia implementation is actually better because it doesn’t include any apps categories that are empty and don’t have any tweaks. Where this tweak is full of app categories that are just empty. Removed.

    • omakad

      He didn’t steal it. He credited developer of the tweak and said that new section is directly inspired by this tweak. It’s in the ver log.

      • LOL

        Indeed…Indeed he did. I stand corrected.

  • pnh

    So I used this repo, installed TweakHub and then installed their tweaks FBDowngradeEnabler and Facebook ++ (with the goal of eliminating the use of FB Messenger). My FB app worked (without Messenger) but it was displaying ads everywhere.

  • Johnny Bravo

    More tab never showed up.

  • Marvin Cook

    Does anyone else get the message with this source that says:
    Pheromone warning you are adding a repository that is not secure and can be ran by a MITM?

  • throttle clutch e brake

    Why does it show this
