Top Free Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks for iPad and iPad Mini

Now that you’ve jailbroken your iPad on iOS 6 with Evasi0n the right way, it’s time to install the top free tweaks and apps for iPad and iPad mini from Cydia, the jailbreak alternative to the App Store.


Tapping into Settings every time you want to enable or disable WiFi or change your iPad’s brightness can get irritating. NCSettings adds quick toggles to Notification Center to quickly access settings such as brightness, WiFi, cellular data, and more. There are lots of add-ons to be had in Cydia as well.

If you’ve ever used SBSettings in the past, you’ll be right at home with NCSettings. The only difference is that NCSettings just integrates with the already existing Notification Center interface which means less gestures to remember and more information and functionality all in one place.

Editing text with your finger in iOS isn’t exactly a cake walk; it’s easy to mess up and have to re-type something or undo a mistake. With SwipeSelection, moving the cursor through a sentence is way easier. Simply slide your finger across the keyboard. Watch the above video and it will make complete sense.

Activator was one of the first jailbreak apps, and it’s still one of the best. Activator allows you to customize button and multitouch functionalityon your iOS device. On its own, Activator is a great way to customize your buttons and gestures, but it’s also the backbone of a lot of other apps and tweaks, making it a required install for just about everything that features custom gestures.

SB Settings

SBSettings is another longtime favorite tweak that has been around nearly as long as jailbreaking. It essentially offers a quick way to access all the settings on your device like power, refreshing, respringing, Bluetooth, and tons more. It also offers up data like your IP address, disk space available, and more right in Notification Center. We’re also including SBProfiles here, which allows you to for your iPad to read your mind. If SBSettings is a little too crazy for you, NCSettings is a simplified version that adds the same toggles to the Notification Center.
