    So now thats everyones probs jailbroken thier devices, lets share all the sweet cydia apps, tips and tricks to customise your phone

    My favourite must have apps are:

    Winterboard: For customising your springboard

    Proswitch: For multi tasking

    Lockinfo: This is a homescreen widget which quickly shows you new rss feeds, messages, emails, missed calls etc

    SBsettings: This is a plug in which allows you too quickly toggle your settings, Best plugins for me are Keepawake which allows you to keep your data connection active whilst your phone is locked and rotation inhibitor which stops your phone from rotating

    Fontswap: Allows you to swap your fonts

    Updatr: Nice tool which reads all your "cracked" apps and shows you which latest version is available to download

    Infinidock which allows you to have a scroll side ways dock

    Infiniboard: Allows you to scroll up and down on a page to browse through apps

    Categories: Allows you to put your apps inside folders

    Yourtube: Allows you to quickly download videos from inside the youtube app

    Anymore? Feel free to share

    Jaxxster, I forgot to thank you for the PM about SBSettings, so I'll say it here. [​IMG]

    Also, I'd like to know if there is a program that can move app icons en masse, because I have a lot of empty space since I installed the 5 Rows x 5 Columns tweak, and I do not want to individually move each icon.
    And does anyone know if Backgrounder/Proswitch are useful? As in, how well do they run and how compatible are they?

    Eh, I don't like it. Since Activator has a bug.
    Sometimes, it won't let me open any apps at all until I lock then unlock my iPod.
    So I just got rid of it.


    Also, an app I like 'Poof'
    It hides any apps you don't want, like Safari, Stocks, etc.

    Are you sure about this? iTunes still thinks that my springboard in 4x4, so I really don't see how it will work for my problem. And is it even safe to sync to iTunes with all my "stuff", if you know what I mean?

    Also, I need a program or tweak that auto-dims the backlight but doesn't auto-lock the iPod so I can continue downloading.

    I'm thinking Insomnia is what you want.
    Keep downloading while the screen is turned off.

    did you have to pay for the 5x5 icon tweak? if not, how would I acquire such a thing? [​IMG]

    Something illegal.


    Oh +1 on appsync.
    Since I have a Nintendo Wi-Fi stick it limit's my download speed so I can just download apps off my computer and drag it into iTunes
