The highly anticipated jailbreak tweak that allows you to add Notification Center widgets to your iPhone's Home screen is finally available in Cydia. Dashboard X is available for download for $1.99 via the ModMyi repo. It's compatible with all iOS 5 devices, and works with all existing Notification widgets.
Dashboard X is easy to use: Just tap and hold to enter wiggle mode. Tap and hold again to access the "Add New Widget" screen. This will display a list of all the Notification Center widgets that you currently have installed on your device. Select the widget you want to add, tap "Add Widget" and it will appear on your Home screen. Position the widget wherever you want, and hit the Home button to exit and lock the widget into place. You can delete the widget by going back into wiggle mode and tapping the (x) like you would normally do to delete an app. You can also remove widgets from the Settings menu by going to the "Enable Widget" panel.
The popular skinning app for jailbroken iPhones, DreamBoard, is now free on Cydia. DreamBoard is a great alternative to Winterboard because it doesn't require you to restart your springboard every time you change themes. Dreamboard also allows much "deeper" themes and user-interface redesigns compared to Winterboard. Where Winterboard basically allows theme developers to re-skin existing iPhone graphics and interfaces, Dreamboard allows theme developers to build entirely new interfaces and methods of displaying information.
Apple has limited the number of home screens on the iPhone to 11. Even though that adds up to a total of 180 applications including the dock, some users want more space. This is possible on firmware version 3.1.2 thanks to a trick that doesn't require jailbreaking.
