Do You Set up your Jailbroken iPhone and Leave it alone or tweak it often?

  1. Set it up and simply use my iPhone

    Are you the type once you settle in with your jailbroken iPhone you are mostly content, or do you like to tweak/fix/fiddle around with various themes and apps?

    I fiddle with it constantly. Love trying new tweaks. I've been using the Ayecon theme for awhile now though. On both my iPhone and iPad mini. Love it.

    Since I'm new to theming (not jailbreaking) I'm constantly fiddling, trying to figure it all out, getting there slowly. I'm sure the twiddling will be dwindling (poet didn't know it). Killing my battery though!

    I mess around with many tweaks. But, Jaku has been on my phone since the jailbreak release.

    I used to love theming and would spend hours on here downloading pieces of different compilations to make my own perfect UI but as time passed I've become more and more fond of the stock OS. There's still a few tweaks I can't live without but they're mostly for functionality rather than aesthetics.

    I have the feeling of wanting to add more and more stuff but don't know what to add!

    I've gotten so bad with tinkering around with various repos and tweaks I find myself (more than once) simply restoring/setting up as new/re-jailbreaking my iPhone/iPad!

    I always promise myself, "ok- that's it!" but am right back at finding new and interesting stuff that I purchase and then delete.

    It's a hobby, kind of, so although I am not proud yet am also not (too) embarrassed.

    I've experimented my way through theming (Winterboard and Dreamboard) but eventually I've became content with a stock look but is not really due to coverflow dock, folder enhancer etc.

    I go through phases. Haha. I'll spend a bunch of time modding, be good for a week or two, then see a review for a new app/theme/etc and get back at it again. Constant cycle, haha.

    i fiddled with all the tweaks until i found which one to keep without draining the battery life and keeping the performance smooth.

    after i found it, i restored my phone, re jailbroke it and installed all the tweaks i decided to keep. so im clean with all the unused dependencies.

    current tweaks are:

    accelerate
    barrel
    nitrous
    zephyr
    f.lux
    passwordpilot
    diet bulletin
    adblock

    that's all

    Even when I've found myself perfectly content with all that I have I find looking deeper into the iOS to find new ways to tweak and make things better, faster, more memory, more stable, anything that will keep my iPhone 3GS as fast as my girls 4. My ipad 4 still smokes the competition lol so I'm not too worried but I'm up to 725 mbs free RAM!

    I regularly check out the new tweaks available via you tube etc but I really only buy ones that enhance my user experience of my ip5.

    I use one theme which is z]ui

    Unfortunately, jailbreak tweaking on my iPhone is very similar to hacking my Droid X, in that I spend WAY too much time fiddling around with various apps and tweaks, to the neglect of my work and wife. Work doesn't mind, but wife does.

    I only used one app in Cydia over the past few years: iBlacklist.

    If Apple ever had something like that app built in, I would not have a need to JB.

    I usually get my phone to where I like it and once it is there leave it until I find something that looks like I would benefit from it. If I don't find it useful, it is deleted. I have an iPod Touch 3g that I experiment on before I put it on my phone or iPad.

    Lately, since I got the 5/iOS6, I haven't really felt the need to jailbreak or fiddle around much.
