Pheromone is one of the first few jailbreak tweaks to customize Cydia

Saurik released Cydia 1.1.19 yesterday which no longer runs as “root” but as “mobile”. This means that jailbreak tweaks will now work with Cydia as well giving developers the ability to customize its interface and bring new functionality.

Pheromone is a jailbreak tweak by HASHBANG Productions designed for Cydia to improve the user experience and add new features. The tweak adds a brown tint color to match Cydia’s icon which means that all the buttons in the Navigation bar and the Tab bar will be colored brown.

Furthermore, the search bar now has a cancel button, the keyboard can be dismissed when swiped down and the HUDs come with a blurred background. One of the interesting features of Pheromone is that it adds a new share button to a tweak’s description page allowing you to share the information of a tweak with your friends using third-party apps such as Messages, WhatsApp, Mail and more.

The tweak also claims to improve the security of Cydia by displaying a security warning when repos that do not use HTTPS are being added.
Pheromone is currently in its beta stages which means that you’ll not find it on one of the default Cydia repos. To install it, you’ll first have to add the following new source to Cydia: http://cydia.hbang.ws/. Once added, go to the Search tab and search for the tweak’s name.
