What did you do when you first got your iPhone 4S jailbroken? I guess it should be about Siri. However, after you get most powerful Siri, your iPhone 4S is still far from powerful. We have gathered most recommend jailbreak app for your newly jailbroken iPhone 4S.

Here we go:


Think of Activator as the key to unlocking limitless shortcut possibilities on your iPhone 4S. Many jailbreak tweaks use Activator to let you trigger actions from anywhere in iOS (double tapping the status bar, triple tapping the Home button, etc.), and you can also assign some stock actions in Activator for controlling basic aspects of iOS. Download Activator for free in Cydia. You’ll be glad you did.


SBSettings has long been the reason to jailbreak the iPhone. The simple shortcut utility allows you to access all of the system settings you toggle daily with a quick Activator action. For example, you could double tap your iPhone’s status bar to trigger a panel of settings, such as Bluetooth and WiFi, and turn features on and off at the blink of an eye. SBSettings is free in Cydia, and you can also download lots of free themes to change the panel’s look to match your Home screen.

Action Menu

As another staple tweak for new and old jailbreakers alike, Action Menu enhances your default iOS copy/paste menu with added features and options. You can tweet highlighted sections of text, look up definitions quickly, see your clipboard history, and more. While Action Menu is free, you can get the Plus Pack for $2.99 with added enhancements.


If you need a legitimate reason to jailbreak your iPhone 4S, look no farther than IntelliScreenX. This insanely detailed extension takes your iOS 5 Notification Center to the next level. IntelliScreenX brings functionality to the Notification Center drop-down window that Apple should have included by default. Not only can you toggle settings like WiFi, 3G, Airplane mode and others, but you can view things like RSS feeds as well. There are multiple pages added to your Notification Center for quickly checking your Mail, Twitter and Facebook. Everything you need to see is in one place. Get this great tweak in Cydia for $9.99 with a free trial. When you purchase IntelliScreenX, you get a nifty tweak called Messages+ as well.


CyDelete is a dead simple tweak that lets you delete Cydia apps from your iPhone’s Home screen like regular apps from the App Store. You’d think that such a thing could be done by default, but you actually need CyDelete to make it happen. It’s a small annoyance, but one that can be easily alleviated with this free jailbreak tweak.


One of the many perks of jailbreaking is the ability to theme your iPhone. You can make iOS look like just about anything, whether it be Windows Phone 7 or even Android (we know, ew.) Winterboard is another jailbreak app that many other themes and mods rely on to work properly, so it’s probably best that you download it for free in Cydia.

Springtomize 2

It’s difficult to explain Springtomize because it literally does everything. Springtomize 2 is the combination of dozens of other miscellaneous jailbreak tweaks that have been in the spotlight over the years. You can change how many icons you have in your dock, what’s in your status bar, how your iOS folders behave, various animations, and much, much, more. If you’re itching to tweak your iPhone’s setup, there’s bound to be something worth while that Springtomize offers you. It’s available in Cydia for $2.99.

MyWi 5

MyWi is widely considered the ultimate tethering tool for jailbreakers. You can use your iPhone’s 3G connection to create a WiFi hotspot for your other devices. There’s also options for tethering via USB to a specific computer or even sending your 3G iOS device’s signal over Bluetooth. You can password protect your signal so others don’t steal your precious data. If you don’t have an unlimited data plan, be careful that you don’t go over your allowance while tethering. MyWi 5 is available in Cydia for $19.99 with a free trial, but hey, it’s better than having to pay your carrier monthly for the same functionality!


As the ultimate jailbreak tweak for bringing your iOS folders to life on the iPhone 4S, FolderEnhancer is definitely worth its $2 price tag. You can add folders within folders, change folder backgrounds and animations, and add an infinite numbers of apps to each folder. Very nice.


Think of iFile as Finder for your iPhone. Apple hides the iOS filesystem by default, but iFile reveals all to devious jailbreakers. You can use iFile to perform manual installs or file edits on the iPhone 4S itself, or even use your device’s onboard memory as a USB drive of sorts. iFile is an essential jailbreak app for the power user. And it’s only $2 in Cydia.

biteSMS 6

As a long-time hall of fame jailbreak app, the latest version of biteSMS replaces the default iOS messaging system. You can quick compose and reply to incoming SMS messages from anywhere, including the lock screen. Version 6 has been optimized for iOS 5, and biteSMS is still the best way to text on the iPhone. The app replaces your default Messages app, but you’ll probably be glad you made the switch. The only downside is that biteSMS will cost you about $9 after the free trial. That’s nearly the price of two large coffees.

3G Unrestrictor 5

3G Unrestrictor says it all in its name. With this powerful app you can make FaceTime calls, watch HD YouTube videos, upload to PhotoStream, download large apps from the App Store, and more over 3G. Boom. Such magical powers will cost you $4 in Cydia.


Jailbreakers don’t have the luxury of backing up their Cydia apps to iCloud or iTunes, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have our configurations stored away for safe keeping. Although all of your Cydia purchases can still be downloaded again for free on another iPhone if you re-jailbreak, it’s still a good idea to have a secondary backup. PkgBackup can use Dropbox to wirelessly backup your data to the cloud. You can store all of the gritty, jailbroken details away for a quick restore later. It’s much better than installing everything manually when you jailbreak again, and well worth the $8 price tag. Peace of mind don’t come cheap.


Zephyr is a brilliant tweak that brings multitouch gestures the iPhone has always needed to jailbreakers’ fingertips. You can use simple, intuitive, iPad-like gestures to access the multitasking tray, switch between apps, and more on the iPhone 4S. Grab Zephyr for $3 now.

Now enjoy your armed iPhone 4S, and please leave your comments about the list!
