For all new starters we already talked about What is Cydia and how to use Cydia and now it’s time to spice up our jailbroken iOS devices with new Cydia apps. Cydia apps are hosted in their respective repo and we need to add the source link before we can download and install particular app.
All of us know the benefits of cydia repositories as they let us find, download and then install Cydia apps, whether they are free, premium or cracked, onto our iPhones, iPod Touch and iPads. This allows us to experience various games, HD themes and tweaks, etc. on our iDevices. All of us know that jailbreaking an iOS device has a fun of its own. It allows us to install and experience different tweaks and modifications which Apple doesn’t allow. As I mentioned, you need to add Cydia source to download particular tweak from cydia. Here I’m sharing list of those top Cydia Sources, which I keep with me.
Here is a useful tip for you, if you would like to browse all Cydia tweaks on Web browser, you can use this link and see what all tweaks you can get from Cydia. Anyways, lets look into some of those must have Cydia sources, that your iPhone should be loaded with. If you think, there should be others making into the list, do let me know via comment and I will add it.
My top list of Cydia Sources & Repos:
The first Cydia repository that I am going to talk about is modmyi and it has a very huge variety of tweaks, apps and modifications for your iDevices. Here you can get to know about the latest news, reviews, downloads, themes and Cydia apps, etc. Moving through the website is also very easy, and everything comes from trusted sources. Everything is placed in separate categories, which are: Books, business, education, entertainment, lifestyle, etc. Currently an app by the name Pocket Frogs is getting a lot of attention. This game app is free and players can discover, collect, breed and trade 15,000 unique frogs on the device you have. One of my favorite in their paid tweaks is, MyWi and Sbsettings. MyWi will let you use your iPad as wi-fi router.

You can even join their forums and keep yourself up-to-date with all of the hot topics. There are also very useful tutorials present on the site. Currently, this repo has a tweak by the name ‘FastLock’ and if this tweak is installed in your device, then double tapping the home button from the lock screen will show you a useful menu. This menu will allow you to place a call, write an e-mail, send a message, send a tweet, add a contact, take a picture, etc. <Link: Insanelyi>
