Thanks to evasi0n who developed jailbreaking tool for iPhone iOS 6.1 earlier this year. I had successfully jailbroken and able to use all top Cydia Tweaks and apps to customize iPhone. I have tried many apps and hacks that allow me to change themes, icons and lockscreen. Many of these apps allow us to use incredible features that Apple doesn’t allow normally.

There are thousands of useful tweaks in Cydia App Store. It is not possible to try all of them to pick the best one. I can understand that, but why you can’t try only top of the best tweak out there? It will be easy to categorize them based on your needs. Each category has hundreds of hacks and tweaks such as SBSettings, IntelliscreenX, vShare and much more.

Top 10 Free Cydia Tweaks

Here I have listed the top 10 tweaks based on download and ratings and other 5 apps based on user’s review. It will make it easy for you to decide what to install from small collection of best tweaks without trying all those thousands of hacks available there.

Cydia AppCake Tweaks

1 AppCake: Actually AppCake is not a tweak, but its a Cydia app and that app contains thousands of great tweaks which you never find in any other app. After Installous, it is most famous and useful app for those who like tweaks. Actually, it is one of the best Installous alternatives. You can find cracked themes, icons and lockscreen tweak in that app. If you have never access AppCake, then you should, because it contains many of those premium paid apps in it’s database at free of cost.

2 IntelliscreenX: It is the best Cydia app and cool lockscreen tweak. If you are social media addict and love to get each and every updates, then IntelliscreenX for you. It is similar to your built-in notification center but more than just like notification center. It offers incredible real-time updates. You can add your Facebook, Tweeter and Google+ account and of course  your Gmail account to get instant updates. You can access IntelliscreenX on lockscreen too and this is the good tweak that built-in Notification center doesn’t provide.

3 LockInfo: If you like IntelliscreenX, then you will like LockInfo too. These both Cydia tweaks offer custom notification on lockscreen activation mode. I have seen many of friends who want each and every single alert and account on the lockscreen. Built-in Notification center hasn’t such powerful feature that LockInfo offers. This is the best alternative for IntelliscreenX. I would suggest you that install one of these two tweaks and only add important updates to your lockscreen.

4 SBSettings: It is must have Cydia Tweak that powers up other built-in apps like bluetooth, brightness controller, SSH, network connection and much more. Actually, it has been on the top since after Cydia was introduced. I am also one of them who have jailbroken their iOS because of SBSettings tweak app. Normally you can’t adjust brightness in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, whereas SBSettings allows you to do all these stuff in just a few clicks.

5 BiteSMS: It is not just a incredible SMS app but it is more than it. It converts your built-in SMS app into quick SMS center. Once you will install this Cydia tweak in your iPhone, it will allow you to access it’s setting penal where you can set your Signature, Passcode, Custom Templates and also you can schedule your SMS for later occasion. This is also one of the top tweaks that every iPhone, iPad users should have.

6 Springtomize 2: I am one of those crazy guys who love to customize their iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. I love to see my iPhone as completely unique and different from others. This Cydia tweak does everything that I want in my iPhone. It changes the look and design and change the icons that I want. If you are also love to customize your iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 icons just like iOS 7.x.x then Springtomize 2 will do that for you. Its just like WinterBoard, but more than that.

7 Zephyr: It allows multitasking feature to your iOS. It adds cool features to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It makes navigation too easy that you can access all your iOS apps within a few clicks. Swipe bottom to top to see all the running apps right on your screen. You can switch from one app to another one or just close unused app. You have tried many tweaks, but this is the one which you must have.

8 Activator: This is also must have tweak that enable all the basic functions that have been blocked by Apple. Apple does’t allow theme change, background brightness changer, icon and lockscreen change. This Cydia tweak makes everything so easy in your iPad or iPhone.

9 Dreamboard: It is one of the best Cydia tweaks to make changes in your iOS UI. Actually, Dreamboard works just similar to Winterboard which quite more popular, because it came before Dreamboard. However, It is better tweak than Winterboard. There is two reasons for this. First is easy to change the gestures and second most importantly it applies changes within a second. I would recommend this Cydia tweak, if you are theme lover. Dreamboard and Winterboard is all about theme customization.

10 vShare: If you have visited Apple app store, you have already saw many paid apps that you have to purchase in order to use. Many of these paid apps you can find in vShare at free of cost. Most of these apps and hacks are very useful. This tweak is similar to AppCake and Installous. You can count it in another Installous alternatives and must have tweak.

Other Popular Tweaks

As I mentioned above that there are thousands of tweaks available in Cydia App Store. We have picked up top 10 tweaks above and remaining a few cool apps listed below…

  • App Switch: This is really a cool Cydia tweak that allows you to add maximum four apps in it that you are access in your common use. Next time access those four apps within a few click using App Switch.
  • AirBlue Sharing: It allows easy file sharing options. It can transfer files using Wi-fi and Bluetooth very speedy. Now you can enjoy high speed file sharing using this tweak.
  • Clear Slider HD: It convert your original slider into HD style slider that is cool enough and eye catchy. This is one the best slider alternative.
  • BrowserChooser: If you love Firefox or Google Chrome in your iOS and want to open links in either in Firefox or Chrome then this tweak is for you. Generally all your links will be open in Safari as it is default web browser, but when you download and install this Cydia tweak, you will be able to set Google Chrome as your default web browser.
  • iBlacklist: If you don’t like any particular person, you can block his phone number using iBlacklist. Actually everyday we need to block someone for any reason and that time iBlacklist will be useful. This was another top tweak.

    I’m use IOS 7.1..evasion 7 can’t Detect my device..help me

    • Gill

      evasiOn can’t jailbreak iOS 7.1 yet

  • carl

    No doubt, these are the best apps in 2014 for iOS 7 jailbroken idevice

  • peter john

    I think, you should keep iBlacklist iOS 7 on the top. It has all the ability which you have seen in other iOS 7 tweaks. It is also a best jailbreak app for iPhone, iPad air and iPod touch
    anyone can install it

  • Glenn

    I believe most tweaks (if not all) will not work with any A7 device right now. As the mobile substrate was written for 32bit ARMs.Any one with an A7 device must stay away from any tweaks as you don’t have any safe mode. You’ll get logo loops and etc. You can download any tweak as long as it doesn’t require mobile substrate (f.lux apps etc.) To A6 devices that have problems, I advice uninstalling mobile substrate – install mobile substrate then install bootstrap. That’ll take care some of the problems.

  • Noe

    If you have an iPhone 5s, you’re not going to be able to use tweaks till they update mobile substrate because of the A7 processor. it could take a couple days to come out.

  • emiliano

    I tried HiddenSettings7, Lock Screen Tool, SwipeSelection, SwitchSpring on my iPhone 4S IOS 7.0.4 but none that apps working as showed on video.

  • Stefan

    if Cydia tweaks not working or appearing on idevice settings ,follow these steps: Reinstall on Cydia : “Mobile Substrate” and “Preference loader” and optionally “Weel loader”
    Then most of the tweak are working

  • marvin

    How do I respring my iphone 5

    • marquis

      You need to download SwitchSpring first. I found out the hard way that if you don’t have a respringing app before you power off your iPhone, you’ll run into problems. I just had to re-jailbreak my phone again and its been working fine ever since.

  • Damon

    Is there an iOS 6 theme for iOS 7? Like, making IOS 7 look like iOS 6? i HATE the way iOS looks.

    • luke

      There definitely is. While I was browsing through some of the pre-loaded cydia links, I saw a tweak that does exactly what you’re looking for. I didn’t try it since i’ve grown fond of the iOS 7 look.

  • Terrence

    My zeppelin is also not working, after installing and respring the phone goes into “Safe Mode” no matter how many times I reinstall mobile substrate it does not work and phone takes forever to boot. I have Iphone 5

  • Brock

    I have iphone 4 running latest ios 7 jailbroken i installed & it doesnt show up in settings like it should so i deleted & re installed still doesnt show?

  • Trey

    nothing i install that compatible with ios7 with iphone works on my i5 :( zeppelin does not work for me

  • Eli

    Stop saying it doesnt work, because it does. Just go to Cydia, search MobileSubstrate and reinstall it. MobileSubstrate hasnt been updated for iOS 7 so thats why a lot of tweaks dont work…

  • Evelyn

    no doubt these are the best Cydia tweaks ever. Have you anything new for iOS 7.1.3? Can I install these hacks on iOS 7.1.2?

    • Tyler

      You can’t, because iOS 7.1.3 is un-jailbreakable. You will have to wait for evasion for iOS 7.1.2 or iOS 7.1.1
