Jailbreaking is all about the tweaks. If you want great apps you will find them at Apple’s App Store, but if you want to make modifications to the way the iPad functions, then you to jailbreak the device. Once your iPad is jailbroken you are ready to install tweaks and Cydia is the place for that. We’ve tried a lot of iPad tweaks and are a few of the best. All of these tweaks will work on the iPad with iOS 5 or later.
The “More Information” link will give you the price, screenshots and more information directly from the developer in your browser. You can tap on “View in Cydia” to open the package in Cydia from your jailbroken iOS device.
Applocker does just as the name suggests, it lets you add a password to individual apps and folders. No need to worry about anyone reading and deleting emails if you use Applocker to set a password for the Mail app.
This tweak adds some really cool effects as you flip through pages on your home screen. There are several different effects to choose from making this one of the top tweaks for iPhones and iPads.
ScrollingBoard is a tweak that lets you scroll unlimited icons in your dock with music controls, volume/ brightness, scrollview effects and more.
Lyricalizer adds the lyrics function back to the iPad music app that was removed with iOS 5. Although this tweak goes about adding them in a different way. Lyrics are fetched on the fly when viewing the album.
GraviBoard adds a gravity effect to the icons on your home screen. All icons on your home screen will fall down, you can then fling them around and watch them bounce.

DeleteMail is a simple tweak that adds a “Delete All” email function to the Mail app.
Swipe for Mail
Swipe for Mail only adds one simple function, the ability to swipe left or right in the Mail app to view the next or previous email. This feels like the natural way to flip through emails on the iPad.
Springtomize 2 – iOS 5+
Springtomize adds a ton of options so you can customize your SpringBoard. You can customize the dock, lock screen, icons, folders, status bar and much more. You can even hide the Newsstand icon with this tweak.
Display Recorder allows iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users to record a video demo on their iDevice. The video can then be uploaded to YouTube.
Cydelete allows you to delete Cydia applications just like apps from the App Store. If the Cydia package installs an app icon, you can just hold down on the icon until it jiggles, then tap the X to delete it. A real time saver if you are trying a lot of Cydia tweaks.
This tweak adds infinite scrolling to your SpringBoard. When you get to the last page of apps on your SpringBoard it “Wrapsaround” back to the search page. This works great in conjunction with the tweak “Barrel” that we mention above.
