4. Springtomize 2
Springtomize 2 is another must-have tweak for your jailbroken iPhone 4S. This app allows users to customize a great number of aspects of the device's operating system - you can tweak icons, folders, animations, the dock and much more.
Other features of this tweak include icon hiding, creating new sections for Time Machine, Notification Center and Advanced Management and settings quick reloading. Check out the link to know more about the tweak.
The tweak is available at the Cydia BigBoss repo for $2.99 only.
5. Hands-Free Control
If your phone is still not jailbroken, you can activate Siri on your iPhone 4S by hitting the Home-Button but once it is jailbroken with Absinthe, you can launch Siri simply by calling to her and without even touching the phone!
The trick is possible only if you have Hands-Free Control, a Cydia tweak that is available at the BigBoss repo at $1.99 only.
