Even though Cydia interface customization is now available to all iOS 8.1.3, 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4 iPhone users who used TaiG or PP Jailbreak and untethered their smartphone – there are not too many tweaks available at the moment. Developers are still working on all the possible jailbreak apps for Cydia store because the new feature became available in Cydia 1.1.19 and 1.1.20 version only.
The store creator Saurik finally changed Cydia from running as ‘root’ to ‘mobile’ and this is why it became possible to use Cydia interface tweaks iOS 8 on all iDevices. Pheromone is one of the first tools that have been designed to improve the feel of Cydia.
How to Customize Cydia iOS 8Step 1. You should add this repo: http://cydia.hbang.ws/ to your sources.
Step 2. Launch Cydia store.
Step 3. Search for Pheromone tweak.
Step 4. Download the tool.
Step 5. Note that the tweak is offered in beta stage. It should be improved in the future. For now it claims to enhance your Cydia security. When you add repositories that don’t have HTTPS you will receive a security warning.
Step 6. You will find the new cancel option in your search bar.
Step 7. Pheromone also makes all your Tab / Navigation bars buttons similar to Cydia in colors. Everything will have the brown tint from now on to look stylish.
Step 8. HUD gets blurred background.
Step 9. It is possible to swipe down and dismiss iOS 8.3 keyboard.
Step 10. If you find the tweak useful and fun to have you can share it with your friends through Mail, Messages and other programs since Pheromone adds its share option to the program’s description page.
What do you think about all these customizations? More iOS 8.3 and 8.4 jailbreak tweaks for Cydia are yet to arrive. This is the new feature that wasn’t available in earlier versions of Cydia but once you update to 1.1.20 or 1.1.19 you’ll get more options than other jailbroken users.
