    New to jailbreaking, in the middle of doing it for the first time to my 4S. I'm planning on getting MyWi and SBSettings. Anything else worth considering?

    iBlacklist and personal hotspot. Hotspot works on my 4S and I could never get MyWi to work.

    Thanks. Does jailbreaking prevent me from using the official Apple App Store at all?

    Cool. Just finished. Backed up via USB on iTunes, jailbreaked in about 2 minutes, restoring my old content as we speak. I'll go find Cydia after I change my SSH and Passwords.

    Edit: Nevermind, I read that you don't have to change the password if you don't install OpenSSH. I use LogMeIn as my remote client so I don't plan on using SSH.

    Thanks. Reading over it now.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but where can I actually download Cydia from? I found a few old packagers from ~2009

    Edit:

    I'm such a tard. I see it. LOL.

    I would say:
    - FolderEnhancer
    - SwipeSelection

    Does Apple's iBooks still work funny/not work at all with Jailbreak?

    That app that I was calling personal hotspot is actually called TetherMe.

    This. I hate having a thousand pages of icons and being able to put folders inside of folders is highly convenient. It also replaces another tweak that hides the Newsstand icon and allows you to move the app inside a folder just like any other app. I'd rather not remove it entirely as I use it occasionally, but not being able to put the app in a folder by default seems rather stupid to me.

    Yup, found it. This is worth jailbreaking alone.

    I set my SBSettings to pop on when I press Vol + and - at the same time, I like this function a lot, I missed it after I switched from my BB.

    NoNewsIsGoodNews works great, but check out Springtomize, it has the option to hide any icons and a ton of other great tweaks for icons/dock/statusbar/lockscreen/etc.

    I used to use NoNewsIsGoodNews, but prefer to let Springtomize handle it. I'd much rather be able to toggle it, since NNIGN has no options. To get it back you have to delete the tweak.
