If you ever wanted to rearrange the icons in the Status Bar and keep them more tidy, you should probably check out a jailbreak tweak known as Moveable that is currently in the beta phase.

With the tweak, you can position the Status Bar items such as the cellular signal, WiFi and battery icons on any side. This means that you can either move them from their current position to the left, center or the right part of the Status Bar. In addition to this, the tweak also allows you to hide any of the icons from the Status Bar.

With that said, Moveable will not work with icons displayed in the Status Bar by other jailbreak packages such as OpenNotifier which allows you to add app icons to the Status Bar. It only works with the default icons that is part of stock iOS.

Once you install Moveable, you can start arranging the Status Bar items from the tweak’s preferences pane in the stock Settings app. There, you’ll find a kill switch toggle that allows you to enable or disable the tweak on demand and a ‘Sort Order’ option. Tapping on it displays a new pane with a list of all the Status Bar items.

The pane consists of five different sections namely Left, Center, Right, Hidden and Default. All items that are under the Default section will remain in their original place. To move an item to the left, right or the center of the Status Bar, you simply have to drag it from the Default section to one of the respective positions.

For instance, to move the WiFi icon to the right side of Status Bar, all you have to do is to grab the WiFi item from the Default section and drag it to the Right section. All items that are added to the Hidden section will hide from the Status Bar.

Moveable is quite an interesting tweak and will come in handy if you want to arrange the Status Bar or hide some of the icons. To get your hands on the tweak, you’ll first have to add a new source to repository. To do so, launch Cydia and go to Sources -> Edit -> Add and type in the following source: http://tateu.net/repo/ .

Keep in mind that the tweak is currently in the beta stage and might have glitches. Let us know how it performs on your device in the comments section below.
