Most of you would know that Cydia is the main attraction after an iPhone has been jailbroken. There are so many repositories over at the Cydia Store, but people don't know all the names. The popular ones, however, are well-known because most of the tweaks are released through them. We’re talking about ModMyi and BigBoss repo, but there are several other useful cydia sources.

3. xSellize Repo
- Repo source: http://cydia.xellize.com/
This is another all in one repository. It also offers tons tweaks and stuff. The best thing what makes it different is the ability to store ROMs and emulators for consoles such as Nintendo 64, Game Boy advance etc. You can consider it as the ‘gamer’s repository’.

iHacksRepo is an all in one repo that offers utilities, tweaks, HD winterboard apps and things that shouldn’t be missed out on. SBSettings, and GUIs with layouts are also available. This should be there on the jailbroken iPhone.

7. ModMyi Repo

8. Hackulous Repo
- Repo source: http://cydia.hackulo.us/
The number 8 repo on our list is Hackulous. Since jailbreaking first came on the scene, it was on several iDevices. The reason for its popularity was known other than Installous, the famous application that allowed users to download install cracked apps for free, and the apps were the one that were on the App Store and were usually priced. Installous is no more, but the source does offer themes, mods and tweaks as other cydia repos.
9. Iforce Repo
- Repo source: http://apt.if0rce.com/
There are tons of tweaks available in this less famous repository. A popular one is AirBlue Sharing that allows transfer of files between devices on iOS and other platforms like Linux, Windows and Mac. Some other names include iTether and Siri0us (not the Harry Potter one).
10. BiteYourApple Repo
- Repo source: http://repo.biteyourapple.net/
It’s meant for Italians, but that doesn’t been that it can’t be used by other iPhone users as well. It gets updated frequently with new release. It offers hundreds of Cydia tweaks and packages. Some of the famous ones are Dreamboard, Infinifolders and Graviboard.
