iOS 7 Untethered Jailbreak: 5 Must-Have New Cydia Tweaks For Apple's Latest iPhone And iPad Software [UPDATED]
With the iOS 7 untethered jailbreak out in the wild, many finally have Cydia running on their latest iPhone and iPad software. Now naturally with the improvements added to iOS 7, jailbreak tweaks new and old are adapting to the new OS. With new interfaces like Control Center and the new look, iOS 7 untethered jailbreak developers have more to play with than ever before. While we appreciate the tried and true iOS Cydia tweaks that have stuck with us over the years, we gotta appreciate the newbies on the block as well. Check below for the best of the new iOS 7 untethered jailbreak tweaks!
Now that iPhone 5s users can take advantage of a jailbroken iOS, you know we were bound to see tweaks come out utilizing Touch ID. Virtual Home allows you to simply touch the fingerprint sensor to return to the springboard as opposed to actually pressing down the home button. While we get our iOS 7 untethered jailbreak fix on a 4s device, we can't speak to having used the app personally. Though if the home button only invokes to your fingerprint, we'd be pretty impressed. For those wanting to limit the number of Cydia packages on their device, you can also do this as part of Activator now.
While we like the look iOS 7 brought with it back in September, we can't say the same about the Music app. If you're like us you may want to install BlurredMusicApp. The app replaces the chrome of the Music app with blur effects, similar to what's found in the new Notification and Control Centers. If you're playing a song with album art with this iOS 7 untethered jailbreak tweak installed, the colors of the album influence the color of the on-screen fonts -- somewhat similar to the new iTunes. We did notice a bit more lag when using the music app now with this iOS 7 Cydia tweak installed. Though it's your call -- maybe the slight dip in performance is worth it to you.
You knew we were bound to see some Control Center iOS 7 jailbreak alterations. With Control Center essentially being the Apple rendition of tweaks like SBSettings or NCSettings, it is only natural that we see tweaks for the toggle pane. While there are many out there, we think CCControls is among the best. The iOS 7 untethered jailbreak tweak allows you to customize what toggles are found in Control Center along with adding a few of their own. New toggles like VPN, Personal Hotspot and Respring make this Cydia tweak pretty useful. Not to mention the ability to disable certain toggles when on the lock screen, like Airplane Mode for example (sorry thieves).
The iOS 7 Cydia tweak is pretty useful, though we did run into a bug or two using it. Though we'll keep our fingers crossed in hopes that the dev will patch things up with time. CCControls can be found on the ModMyi repo.
CCQuick is another iOS 7 untethered jailbreak tweak that's caught our eye. While CCControls mainly deals with customizing the top row of toggles, CCQuick focuses on the bottom row of shortcuts. Along with being able to finally customize what's on the bottom of your Control Center, CCQuick comes with an added bonus. iOS 7 jailbreak users will be able to access a secret settings panel that Apple includes, but hides, within their latest software -- allowing customization of the new UI. The secret menu allows you to control the speed of various UI flourishes and parallax effects. Though if you're looking to speed things up without installing something like CCQuick, we'd go with the Cydia tweak NoSlowAnimation.
If you're a fan of the new black keyboard part of iOS 7, jailbreak to the rescue! The iOS 7 untethered jailbreak tweak KeyBlack allows you to always make use of the black keyboard -- not just in select screens. If you're a fan of the darker look or want something that matches your black device better, this Cydia tweak is for you.
The iOS 7 untethered jailbreak download was released relatively recently and already we've seen some great enhancements made available. Between the new concepts developers are bound to come up with and oldie but goodie tweaks slowly regaining compatibility, it's a great time to be part of the jailbreak community. Stay tuned for more great iOS 7 jailbreak Cydia tweaks!
[UPDATE 1.7.2014]: We just had to include this iOS 7 untethered jailbreak in our list. Using the app Touchy users can hover over the fingerprint sensor to launch an app. Though the fun doesn't end there -- the finger used determines which app is launched Hold your index finger over the sensor, for example, to launch the Caluclator. Use your thumb to launch Messages -- you get the picture. With many new iOS 7 jailbreak tweak, this wouldn't have been possible in previous versions of the iPhone.
