Apple Devices like an iPhone, iPod and iPad have really made a dent in the universe. These devices are said to be the ‘Super Gadgets’ on which you can perform almost every task you want. These are the devices that have started the post PC era.

 

Now it is true that these devices are really that powerful, but in my opinion (and in the opinion of many many others) these devices are like ‘Super Cars with Performance Lock’. Now the reference to context might not be accurate but what I am trying to say is that these iDevices can give you much more than they normally do. And you can unleash and realize the true power of your iDevices once you jailbreak them and set them free !!

 

I am not going into the topic of Jailbreaking right now. I assume that you have already jailbroken your iDevice and hence will focus on telling you about the

Top 10 things to do with your Jailbroken iPhone/iPad’.

  1. Play Paid Games for Free

  2. Customize device controls using Activator

  3. Use Emulators to play games of different platforms

  4. Install Cool Themes

  5. Lock Applications using password

  6. Lock Home screen Icons

  7. Use Custom Folders

  8. Revamp your Power Options

  9. Block Pop-ups and other messages

10. Use Custom Shortcuts on your home screen

 

So now that you know my list of ‘Top 10 Things to do…’ lets check out each of them separately. And if you want to know about any of them in details then please do let me know. I will make a post on it too.

1. Play Paid Games for Free

One of the most powerful advantages of having a jailbroken device is that you can download and play paid games for free. Now even though this is not ethical and is not a good practice, it still is the Number 1 advantage that you have if your iDevice is jailbroken.

2. Customize device controls using Activator

If you have a jailbroken device, you definitely have CYDIA and ACTIVATOR. Now Activator is a very powerful tool. It allows you to set custom methods in which you can call or execute regular actions. For example simply tapping the UP and DOWN volume buttons together can pause the current song that is being played.

This can be done with the help of an app named ‘ACTIVATOR’

3. Use Emulators to play games of different platforms

This is actually true. If you have a jailbroken device, you can play NINTENDO and GAMEBOY ADVANCE games right on your devices. So now classic games like MARIO, CONTRA and POKEMON can be played right on your device !!

This can be done with the help of apps named ‘SNES and GPSP’

4. Install Cool Themes

CYDIA allows you to install a cool app called ‘Winterboard’. With the help of this app you can install cool themes into your device. You can very much change the total look and feel of your device.

This can be done with the help of an app named ‘WINTERBOARD

5. Lock Applications using password

In a jailbroken device, it is possible to lock applications using password. So now no one will be able to play your favorite games without your permission and no one will mess up your current game profile.

This can be done with the help of an app called ‘APPLOCKER’

6. Lock Home screen Icons

This is also another cool tweak to have. In jailbroken devices you can lock the position of your icons. Hence, your home screen will remain the way you want and no body will mess up your arrangement.

This can be done with the help of an app called ‘ICON LOCK’

7. Use Custom Folders

Customizing folders will never be a problem now. In jailbroken devices, you can now have around 100 apps in one single folder. In fact you can even have a folder inside a folder. How cool is that ??

This can be done with the help of an app called ‘FOLDER ENHANCER’

8. Revamp your Power Options

Now you can easily REBOOT and RESPRING your device. You will get these options directly in the screen where you get the ‘Slide to Power Off’ option.

This can be done with the help of an app called ‘GPOWER PRO

9. Block Pop-ups and other messages

Another cool mod available for jailbroken devices is the option to block all the unwanted and irritating pop-ups and messages. So you see only what you want and everything else is blocked.

This can be done with the help of an app called ‘POPUP BLOCKER’

10. Use Custom Shortcuts on your home screen

There is another useful tweak that will directly put most of the commonly used settings directly on your home screen. So you can turn on your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth directly from the home screen.

This can be done with the help of an app called ‘ANICONS

I hope you find these 10 things to be very useful. And I assume you find these things (the apps or tweaks). If you need any kind of help just let me know and I will be there to help.
