The simplicity of the evas0in tool finally convinced me to Jailbreak my phone. Get the tool & instructions from here.
Since I have an ageing iPhone 4, resources are precious. I decided to install only those apps/tweaks that would improve user experience & stay away from modifying the themes etc.
NCSettings for Notification Center Toggles, finally a quick way to get to these important settings. Has 18 toggles to choose from, swiping along shows the next set. BlurriedNCBackground to replace Notification Center Linen backdrop with a blurred background.
Brightness adjusted in Notification Center
On tapping the brightness button, it brings up the slider to adjust.
MultiStorey adds another row to App Switcher & brings volume slider together with media control
Activator is another great app. It allows you to use gestures to control your phone [similar to the gestures used on the iPad]. You can bind different gestures to different apps/tasks etc [2/3 fingers, touch/taps/swipes ]
For eg: I set it so that a sliding finger from the bottom onto the screen activates the app switcher , 3-finger tap takes a screenshot, 3 finger pinch closes app & brings me back to the home screen etc.
Changed from default camera to Camera+ using AnyLockApp
AnyLockApp allows you to change app launched from the lock screen. Instead of the default camera app I have linked it to Camera+. It can be linked to any app of your choice.
Other apps of note
-SwipeShiftCaret: Move the cursor along text to edit easily with swipes
-Veency: Control phone through your computer.
All this has barely scratched the surface , there is so much more that you can do, its mind boggling!
