Damn, thats a very impressive jailbrake app list ya got going there..lol
Sb settings- quick easy access of settings functions + frees up memory
Retinapad- allows iphone apps to be enlarged with better quality closer to ipad native resolution..bring retina display to iphone apps.
Winterboard- i ended up uninstalling it but it allows u to customize the ipad graphical UI
Bt mouse- allows bt mouse to be added
Bt gps- allows u to add an external gps module that can connect to ipad thru BT. My win mo phone can also act as an external gps unit. Havent tried it out yet though.
Display Out- mirrors ipad screen on tv using either vga, component, or composite cables. Hopefully new Digital AV adapter coming out will allow ipad1 to mirror also thru this jailbreak. It works with ipad1 but for video out only. Only ipad2 has native mirroring with new adapter
Fast Copy-speeds up copy/paste functions..no longer a pause
G Power pro- touch screen access to power off, reboot, and respring with needing hardware buttons
Ibooks Fix- fixed ibooks not opening on 4.2.1 jailbrake
IFiles-the Greatest PC/Mac style files and folder access to internal files on ipad. No longer need itunes to transfer files, movies, mp3's or whateva. My sole reason for jailbraking period.
Quake 3 Arena HD-play quake 3 online against other users. Wrks very well. Graphics really good
Showcase-shows the case lettering on ipad keyboard. Works very well n useful.
Activator- allows u to asign touch gestures to access different things or apps. For ex. I swipe down on clock area and my ipad goes into sleep mode/screen lock. I swipe clock area to the left and it brings up IOS task switcher screen n other screen with volume, brightness, and orientation lock. I double tap clock area and brings up my g power pro to allow me to reboot, power off, or respring. No longer need hardware buttons. Touch gestures. Or i tap and hold down clock area and it brings up my Ifiles ;-) no longer use hardware buttons as i have touch gestures for all their functions.
I definitely seen some on your list i might try out. Some new ones i havent seen or came across yet. Great idea on listing!
Lets keep the list going jailbreakers!

Reason: Deleted reference to cracked app repository
I just added, thnkx to op,
FakeClockUp- i am veryyy impressed with this. This was what my ipad has been yearning for. Lol its unbelievable how much faster the ipad is now. Everything opens up alot faster, apps, browsers, taskswitcher, Everything! Even orientation switching wayyyy faster. Unbelievable.
Remove recents- i have to test this out more to see if it truly wrks. For example my notes still show up there but that might have multitaskin support aslo. Ill open a bunch of apps to see. Edit..just tested more, still showing every app in task switcher unless every app i opened has background support, which i doubt. I think with 4.2.1 it only allows u to quicly delete app form task switcher as it has x already in top left corner of app instead of me havimg to hold it down to bring it up. Unless it was like that b4, but never noticed. I dont think so though. Maybe if u have older ios version, remove recents will only keep apps actually running in the background in task switcher. Still handy though. I wont uninstall it yet as i was going to until i noticed the x already on those apps to delete tasks. Saves a lil time..lol still useful
App info- great detailed info on all app store, cydia apps, n more that u have installed on the ipad.
No Mute- i loved it at first until i noticed something...lmao it does bring back orientation lock to hardware button BUT guess what, it still mutes the ipad also..***** i tested it cutting it on and off and it does still mute ipad while bringin orientation lock back. I discovered it because after i installed it, i noticed when i was typing, i wasnt hearing the noises anymore or when i press power button i didnt hear the click. I didnt try to pull up an app with sound to see if it mutes everything but i figure it does. Just switched the switch midway just now typing n it got silent..lol..switch back..got sound again..it does wrk but still mutes ipad. Edit..just tested out more, it still does, in fact, mute ipad along with bringn orientation switch back to hardware button. I will uninstall this ome. Fakeclock up along with activator makes software orientation lock a breeze to activate.
This list becoming useful already. Fakeclockup is defintiely an app everyjailbreaker needs to install. Seriously! Thnkx OP

Thanks to you all for posting. I just JB'd by iPad and a lot of what you all posted I'm trying out. Really opens up the iPad and makes it more user friendly IMO.
I'm new to iFile so can someone explain how I drag/drop files from my computer to my iPad w/o using iTunes? I plugged my iPad into my work PC and it still comes up like the iPad already did. No way to browse.

I use ifiles to pit web downloaded movies into the proper app folder needed to play. Or u know how u plug an sd card to ipad thru Camera connection kit n itll only show photos, with ifiles, u see EVERYTHING that is on that card. U can copy/cut/paste files from Sd card to ipad or files from ipad to the sd card. Compatible thumbdrives will work the same also. That might be the easier route to go, if u have the camera connection kit with sd card and usb adapter for ipad. Just put ur pc files on sd card or compatible usb drive, then use ifiles to transfer like that. I believe there is a way to hook it to a pc and transfer but ive never done it. As ive been trying to minimize desktop/laptop ipad needs. Ifiles should have instruction/FAQ in it. Also, the sd card or thumbdrive should show up as a flash drive in ifiles. Itll be on the left hand side of screen in landscape mode.

Good catch, Switchermod actually takes control of taskbar customization on 4.2.1

Also ifiles allows u to see Everything, meaning files, apps, etc.. Thats in ur ipad. Like win mo file explorer. U can also move around files internally in ipad, if need be. For example, i download a movie from the web. I use ifiles to place that movie into the VLC documents folder and bam! Im done. Now VLC player recognizes n plays the movie. If u werent jailbroken or have ifiles, u would have to do the tedious process of syncimg ipad to computer, then move the movie to vlc player thru itunes, lomg process. Ifiles makes it fast n easy. Same goes for other apps if itunes was needed, instead now u can use ifiles to place the info where it needs to be to be recognized.
Word of caution though, dont go into ipsd root files if u dont know what ur doing or didnt read up, as u can probaly mess something up if u delete a system file or folder lr something. I never had that issue but just warning so u dont go into there moving any and everything..lol Ifiles will become ur bestfriend along with Fake clock up.
Good idea! Its been a while since a recent cydia apps n tweaks thread has been made. Needed serious updatiing and this thread is becoming that. If we lucky, might be made into a sticky(hint mods). And once again im truly impressed with Fake clock Up!

Yeah, definitely watch what u say up here :-/ oh lordyyy..lol eyes r watching as my post has been edited for obvious reasons and recieved a digital spanking for it..lmao i knew i shouldnt have named that app but i never said what is was for. Didnt think itll be an issue just mentioning the name of it, damn! Still a great thread n posts. Keep em coming.
