Saurik announced the Cydia 1.1.19 which brings new features like customization Cydia application. The Cydia application no longer runs as “root” and rather than runs as “mobile” so that the themes and tweaks can help you customize Cydia too. It is a new feature and within no time we can see different themed versions of Cydia. At present Pheromone Cydia Tweak helps you customize Cydia by adding little but pretty useful features which are missing in Cydia.
The Pheromone Cydia tweak is developed by “HashBang Productions” and is available over their repository. The Cydia tweaks add some much-needed features like Share button so that you can share the tweak you installed or going to install with your friends. It adds a brown tint color which looks amazing over Cydia and you can swipe down on the screen to hide the keyboard.
The developers stated that they have added “Cancel” button near search bar and I can’t find it in my iPad Mini. Although when I tried to share a tweak Cydia crashed. As the tweak just got released we may expect the fixes and new features added to the “Pheromone” overtime.
