    I am looking into jailbreaking my iPhone 6 when it becomes available for iOS 9.2. This is the list of tweaks I'm interested in, I don't want to tweak the crap out of my phone, just minor things.

    Upscale
    SwitcherTweak/Switcher Speedster
    AdvancedSettings8 (just a little interested by this, probably won't use it much)
    SwipeSelection
    Bloard
    FakeCarrier/NoCarrier
    NoBlur

    I haven't even looked into iOS version compatibility for some of these by the way so if any of them as of now aren't working on iOS 9, let me know.

    But anyway, I'm just curious about what you guys think about those tweaks. I'm especially curious about upscale, I'm looking into using it on my iPhone 6 to run at the iPhone 6+ resolution for landscape features. Does it cause any battery issues due to the extra processes for the higher resolution/downscaling?

    Try "Smoothcursor" with SwipeSelection for best experience. Its a must imo.

    I heard about that tweak before, looked sort of interesting, I'll consider it when/if the 9.2 jailbreak rolls around.

    Good call! Also on OP's short list should be HideMeX and iCleaner. Getting rid of some parallax effects, system blurs, and unused files help with battery life along with a subtle, custom look.

    Okay, this is my expanded list. I have some things in there I just want to try out but I don't plan on making it a primary tweak that I keep. Some things where I have slashes are tweaks that do similar things but I am not sure which one I should use.

    I feel like my list is getting a bit long, I originally planned on having a more "mild" tweak setup to avoid issues but I think that is slipping. I want to be as faithful to stock iOS as possible, both in terms of look and functionality. I don't want to get to the point where I could absolutely never go back to regular iOS because of the loss of features or whatever.

    Upscale
    SwitcherTweak/Switcher Speedster
    AdvancedSettings8 - Meh, just to see what it can do. Not planning on keeping, really.
    SwipeSelection
    Bloard
    FakeCarrier/NoCarrier/Zeppelin
    NoBlur
    DockShift
    Springtomize 3 - More info?
    SmoothCursor
    NightMode8
    iCleaner

    Any redundancies in this list? Like can some of these tweaks already do what some others in the list do, etc?

    Replace SwitcherTweak with Speed intensifier and speed up all animations system wide. Very effective for giving the impression of over clocking.
    Springtomize 3 should be installed by default. One stop shopping at its best. Replaces DockShift and NoBlur but offers so, so, so much more.

    Okay I will install springtomize 3 and hope that does everything I need. Speed intensifier won't do what I want I don't think because I want to use switcher tweak to disable the blurs in the app switcher to make it smooth (springtomize 3 may do this) I'm fine with the animation speed I just want to make it smooth. Really bad on my mini 2.
