Windows Phone Hacker's Jaxbot has just issued an update to his experimental but awesome WPH Tweaks, which lets you do all kinds of awesome customizations like adding more multitasking cards, using the Music + Videos Hub while the phone is syncing, hide the jump list for your apps, and plenty more. It's my personal favorite of Jaxbot's stellar collection of apps, and it's just been updated to Version 0.6.
The newest iteration of the homebrew app is highlighted by the ability to rearrange your Settings items. So for example, if you frequently visit your phone's Brightness settings but hate scrolling next to the bottom of the list to get to it, you can now move it near the top by using WPH Tweaks. The interface is as simple as one would imagine, letting you slide around the items to your heart's content (seen above).
Besides that insanely cool feature, you have a few smaller new tweaks some users could appreciate as well. Users who have the 7.5 Refresh (Tango) update on their devices can now enable a Static IP for their Wi-Fi connection and export contacts to a SIM chip for easy portability. Meanwhile, you also have the neat hat trick of changing the boring H+ or 3G symbol to a 4G icon in your phone's system tray.
WPH Tweaks requires a dev-unlocked device along with root privileges (via custom ROM or WP7 Root Tools). You can pick up the latest version of the app at the source link below.
