The iPhone 5 is a solid device in the hardware and software side, but some users want more from their fruity device. Jailbreaking enables the user to download apps from Apple’s App Store, and from the user-made Cydia store. The Cydia store works the exact same way as the App Store. Users can download, and purchase different “tweaks” to customize their phone in a way that is impossible with Apple. For example, widgets are not-prominent on Apple’s devices. Jailbreaking enables you to add widgets, change the theme, carrier logo, and so much more. Jailbreaking was ruled illegal for the iPad, but remains legal for the iPhone and iPod Touch variants.

In short, if you are looking for a new adventure with Apple’s devices, Jailbreaking is your new best friend. In the video above we show you our favorite Cydia “tweaks” to achieve a minimalist iPhone. Below are the Cydia “tweaks”, and their prices.
