3 Must Have Cydia Tweaks For Your Freshly Jailbroken iPad 2 [iOS 5 Tested]

by on January 22nd, 2012

So, the highly anticipated untethered jailbreak for iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 is finally out and with it opens a whole new portal of Cydia tweaks for your jailbroken device. If you’re into jailbreaking (who isn’t?) and have freshly jailbroken your iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1, here are 3 must have Cydia Tweaks for your device all of which have been tested to be fully compatible.

RetinaPad

This is definitely a must get tweak for every jailbroken iPad 2 owner. Developed by Ryan Petrich, RetinaPad allows users to enable Retina display functionality for apps which were primarily designed for iPhone / iPad touch only. As a result, the iPhone / iPod touch only apps are not run at iPhone screen size or at 2x resolution (which looks pretty ugly) but instead they are rendered in a way as if they were designed for the iPad’s bigger screen. The tweak is available via the BigBoss repo for $2.99.

FullScreen for Safari

As the name implies, FullScreen for Safari adds full screen browsing capability to iPad’s Safari browser. This iPad exclusive tweak not only allows full screen web surfing but also adds functions like swipe gestures and shaking methods to perform user defined tasks such as switch between working tabs, go back, go forward and close the current tab. Once installed, tweak’s preferences can be configured via the Settings.app. FullScreen for Safari is also a commercial package, available on the BigBoss repo for $2.19.

iFile

iFile is hands down the best filesystem manager available for iOS devices today. With iFile, users get full access to device’s root and its complete file structure allowing seamless navigation through the file system with native viewing support for tons of file types including .pdf, .zip, image and video files. There is also a built in web browser with ability to send files as email attachments. The app also has full Dropbox integration. iFile is offered as a commercial package as well as a free limited trial. Full version of iFile can be bought for $4.99 from Cydia.
