    Adblocker is my favorite. I can't stand ads :(

    I also have:
    - Snes9x Ex
    - Springtomize 2
    - Fullscreen for safari
    - NCSettings

    Wow. Auxo is the most well designed tweaks I've used.

    I'd say Auxo is by far my fave UI type tweak. I quite like stock iOS despite the limitations so having easily accessible settings without some alien looking widget on my springboard is really nice. It's just a great tweak

    Aside from that TetherMe is great, if only to disable carrier signature checking, as being on giffgaff I can now use voicemail, proper APN settings that don't change back every 2 weeks etc etc.

    Others I have:
    - SMS Timestamps - Great
    - Springtomize 2 - wish I hadn't paid for it, however since I did I use it to hide some icons.
    - Winterboard - Got glasklart themed lockscreen/phone.app and a custom icon for gMusic (Hate that stock one, so ugly)
    - Zephyr - Not bad, certainly useful and compliments auxo but I could easily live without it.

    User agent faker - mobile websites go bye bye on safari. Not working on Chrome for some reason :\ Works on dolphin, but I cant stand the green color.

    I mean, sure Auxo is great and for only being out a couple of days but it's a bit choppy still.

    It's a three way tie. IntelliscreenX, BiteSMS, and AUXO.

    Zephyr is also awesome with Auxo.

    activator.

    Not many people praise it but it makes life simple for me.

    hold volume button down to pull notification bar down.
    hold volume button up to access camera.
    tap left status bar for quick capture video.

    The issue I have with it, is that the gestures sometimes are not responsive and need to be performed 2 times :(

    That's my issue with it as well. I tend to not do the gestures just the tap and hold toggles.

    Loving Bulletin. I like being able to use nc from lockscreen. Combined w opennotifier and i no longer have to set my key apps to show notifications on lockscreen. I hated that it always turned on display.

    Totally forgot about Bulletin and I use it frequently. That bundled with Intelliscreen X is pretty decent.

    Why would you need bulletin & ISX? Don't they more or less do the same thing on the lockscreen? Can you post a screen capture of your lockscreen? Thx.

    What's your favourite jailbreak tweak and why?

    This is actually my lockscreen when locked. Then there it is when I pull down intelliscreenx ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21360161390.105746.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21360161410.080127.jpg

    Browser Changer has an option in its settings to enable Google Maps as the default map application.

    Have fun at dinner tonight.

    Oh, and my favorite tweak right now is bitesms, it's a godsend.

    Also using:
    Browser changer (defaults links to desired browser and google maps)
    Adblock (blocks ads in Chrome and other apps (totally works for bitesms outside of trial)
    Nowlistening (displays banner on song change)
    Swipeselection (amazing text selector, I imagine Apple steals this in future iOS)

    Those are my favorites
