Saurik has released a new updated version of Cydia which no longer runs as “root” but as “mobile’, which means that jailbreak tweaks will now work with the latest Cydia 1.1.19 as well giving developer the ability to customize its interface and bring new functionlaity. In that action, we here got a most popular jailbreak app, called Pheromone tweak, that makes you easily customize your Cydia tweaks and store as well.
Pheromone is a jailbreak tweak especially designed by HASHBANG Productions for Cydia to improve the user experience and add new features to it. Now support on iOS 8.4 jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with TaiG v2.3.0. Tweak that adds a brown tint color to match Cydia icons and by means, all the buttons in the Navigation bar and the Tab bar will be transformed into brown.
The Cydia’s search bar now has a cancel button, the keyboard can also be dismissed when swiped down and the HUDs come with a blurred background. Top on the list of features of Pheromone would be that it adds a new share button to the twaek’s description page allowing you share the info of a tweak with your friends using third-party apps such as Messages, WhatsApp, Mail et al.
It is one tweak that also said to improve security of Cydia. By displaying a security warning when repositories that do not use HTTPS are being added. Great!
The Pheromone app is current in beta stage, so you will not find it on one of the defaul Cydia repository. To install it, you’ll first of all need to add the following new source to Cydia – Sources – Edit – Add ” http://cydia.hbang.ws/“. Once added, go to the Search tab and search for the tweak’s name.
Soon we’ll see Pheromone-like packages in the near future that theme Cydia and add new functionalities to Cydia and also to your iOS device.
