If you are a regular reader of our blog, chances are you are aware that we love jailbreak tweaks here. We do enjoy bringing into your attention the best tweaks and apps that that the jailbreak community can offer, whether it is something truly useful and practical or something which we simply think is cool. Well, we have another jailbreak tweak for you that we are sure that most you will find to be useful.
The stock iOS Settings app for the most part, does what it does rather well and for most people, it should be enough. But if there's one gripe about the Settings.app that most people would cite is the fact that one has to dig deep into it in order to find the configurations that you are looking for. Now things potential becomes even more unwieldy if you have tons of jailbreak tweaks installed since a good chunk of them are usually configured from the iOS Settings app. If you are already tired of searching small tweaks, settings and applications from Settings.app, then this jailbreak tweak is for you.
This new jailbreak tweak is called Preference Folders from the author that goes by the handle iSam. This tweak basically lets you organize your settings into a folder which will be created inside the Settings.app itself. And the user can use this folder to be populated with any sort of settings that he likes. This way you can make several folders where you can organize all your settings, including the ones that belongs to your jailbreak tweaks and apps. You can create a folder for tweaks and apps which you use on a frequent basis or if you want you can group the settings which you never or rarely use, just to keep it all organized. If you have tons of apps and tweaks installed, Preference Folders is indeed a life saver.
Or if you choose to, you can also make a settings folder for a specific application, like for Mail tweaks or Safari tweaks. The possibilities are endless and you can be as organized as much as you want. Preference Folders is available in Cydia under BigBoss repo and it can be yours for a measly $1.99. If you are someone who really wants to organize his iOS Settings and jailbreak tweaks, then we highly recommend that you install this tweak.
As per usual, you need to have a jailbroken iOS iPhone, iPad and iPod touch before you can use Preference Folders. In case you haven't yet, just check out these following tutorials we have provided for you. For iOS 4.3.5 firmware users, we refer you to our Redsn0w tethered jailbreak guide. If you would rather like to have an untethered jailbreak, we suggest you restore your iDevice to iOS 4.3.3 and jailbreak it using one of the following tools: Redsn0w, Sn0wbreeze, PwnageTool or JailbreakMe (best for beginners). If you have installed the iOS 5.0 build, read our Redsn0w tutorial for a tethered solution. For a semi-tethered jailbreak however, read our complete guide here. For users who have gotten the latest firmware update, check out our iOS 5.0.1 final guide here.
