What are the essential features?
If you are asking what are the most essential jailbreak features,then this is easy:
1)SBSettings-toggles in notification center
2)Activator-activates anything from anywhere
3)-iFile-file manager for iOS
4)-Auxo-iOS 7 card-multitasking and other features
5)-Winterboard-install custom themes
6)-Display Recorder-record the screen
Second, third, and fourth this comment.
Still on unlimited Verizon.... Don't want to pay for tethering.
NcSettings. No toggles, lame.
Messages. No quick reply, lame.
Push for Gmail. No push gmail for iOS, lame.
TetherMe. Have unlimited data, but your carrier charges you extra to use they way you like, lame.
Winterboard. Can't make the UI look the way you want, lame.
Bottom line; iOS is lame without jail break awesomeness.
those are the reason i jailbreak. Words cant describe how excited i am to get an iphone 5 or "5s" because im on sprint and have unlimited and will tether the crap out of it lol
No push for email is only valid for new idevices using gmail, besides that it is not an Apple issue but a Google/Microsoft issue
But that's only if you set it up through exchange. There are a couple other devices out there that don't require that.
3.) Color Keyboard
After iOS7 comes out only moviebox and xbmc
A few others I didn't see mentioned yet:
iBlacklist (last I saw, still more configurable than iOS 7's built in blacklist function)
AdBlocker (or changing your hosts file to block ads)
Navigate From Maps (Navigon still blows Apple Maps out of the water as far as navigation goes, but sucks as far as inputting addresses)
20 Second Lockscreen
RetinaPad (massive improvement over normal 2x doubling of iPhone apps on the iPad--I'd JB that device for just this one tweak!)
And that list leaves off all the cosmetic-only tweaks I run. Those are just a bonus on top of the increased functionality gained via jailbreak.
Quick compose/quick reply and LockInfo. Anything else, I wouldn't miss too much.
Replace accelerator with fakeclockup
Edit: I can't figure out how to do an embedded video. Sorry.
-IntelliScreenX - Sticky Calendar
The calendar from IntelliScreenX is really something I can't live without.
We've all got our favourite tweaks..
I couldn't do with placing my iPhone back into Apples sandboxed world !
Used fakeclockup for a long time, great tweak but Accelerator has a few more interesting options.
I hate the newstand app and the spotlight search
Springtomize will hide newstand and the nospot screen- plus allows many more tweaks!!!
Never thought I would say this, but as Apple releases newer versions of iOS I am finding less and less reasons to jailbreak my iPhone, with that said...
Currently installed on my iPhone 5:
asktosend - still useful
asktocall - still useful
applocker - still useful
ncsettings - still useful
safari download manager - not that important
winterboard - not that important
iCleaner - still useful
iFile - still useful
3Gunrestrictor - not that important
Peekly - not that important
I really am contemplating removing the jailbreak on my iPhone 5 for the release of iOS 7, as I don''t think I'll miss it as much.
Now regarding my iPad 3, that's a different story as I absolutely can't do without XBMC, Applocker, iCleaner, Safari Download Manager, ProTube, DisplayOut, iFile and a couple other minor tweaks.
It's strange because when I first bought the iPad, I didn't really see anything worth jailbreaking it for..but gradually over time I've built it up to be an entertainment power house gizmo
I really like the sound of the rumored iPad 5, but unless iOS 7 is jailbroken, it will be hard to part with my JB iPad 3.
Ditto thanks to Bumpy
f.lux is great, but why the icon?
Once it's set up I don't have a need for it. Setting it up via settings on my iPhone would have been just as easy.
I wish more tweaks would do without the icon (semi-tether is another example).
Oh snap! Hahaha what's up Bob? How you been? I'm still lurking around on this sub-forum although not as much as last year.
Edit: Flux is arguably my all time favorite tweak. Whenever I use a device without flux late at night, I am quickly reminded of flux's greatness. It's easy to forget its impact.
