Whenever there is a jailbreak available, almost everyone tries to install some third-party applications especially from the largest Cydia store on his / her iPhone, or iPad. As far as your sole source for third party package is Cydia, you don’t need to worry about malware and some other similar stuff like viruses etc because Cydia moderators are professionals and check almost every package on the approved repositories.
After many beta releases finally the first public build of biteSMS 8.0 is now available. It supports all major iOS versions including the latest one iOS 7 / iOS 7.0.5 and almost all iOS devices including iPhone 5S.
Many things are now moving towards stable state for iOS 7 jailbreak. When the evasi0n 7 was released, it didn’t contain the compatible build of Cydia store. Due to this issue many applications, themes and tweaks which were installed from the store were not working, especially those which relied on mobile substrate.
As we have told earlier that many tweaks and cydia applications which depend on MobileSubstrate to work properly are currently broken and not working on iOS 7 devices which are jailbroken with the help of Evasi0n7. Though Saurik is working to update the MobileSubstrate, but if you don’t want to wait till that here is a simple cydia app which will fix the problem till we get the official release.
As you know that the very first release of evasi0n 7 v1.0.0 jailbreak was included with a chinese store. Later, the chinese store TaiG was removed from it and a new version v1.0.1 was released. Now this new version is also available in the Cydia store for all those jailbreakers who are still running older version.
If you missed the breaking news of this weekend regarding iPhone jailbreak then it is to inform you that we have finally got the working untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.0.4 and below versions compatible with all iOS 7 supported devices including the latest ones, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and others.
I don’t know what’s the motive behind releasing the iOS 7 evasi0n jailbreak without collaborating with the Cydia creator, Jay Freeman, who is also known as Saurik in the community. It may be that the evad3rs team wanted to give a gift to its loyal users before the Holidays starts, but this haste has also given us some incompatibilities over the newly released jailbreak.
Out of many things, one reason due to which I like iOS/iPhone is its flexibility and customization, especially when iPhone is jailbroken. In fact we can customise every corner and every aspect of iOS using the tweaks and different apps available in the Cydia and App Stores. Unlike some other operating systems, iOS contains a third party store where you can find those apps which don’t get their place in official App Store. Another plus point of iOS jailbreaking is that we don’t have to re-install the whole firmware file on the device in order to get some specific modifications. Everything goes smoothly, without disturbing any native function.
Sometimes the absence of a tiny feature from a software or application becomes really frustrating. The same situation applies to the native Facebook app for iPhone and iPad devices. Facebook for iOS is one of the most downloaded app from AppStore. The developers behind it worked hard to bring the desktop-like experience to small screen but they missed to incorporate a very small feature that is “Copying Text” from timelines.
Update: Originally this post was written before the release of iOS 7 but now as iOS 7 jailbreak is already in the town so I decided to update it with the latest free cydia tweaks and applications compatible with the latest iPhone 5S, 5C models. The below two paragraphs are from the original article and I am leaving them as they are for those users who are still using iOS 6 or for those who have bookmarked this page for iOS 6 tweaks. I may remove them later any time. You may skip them and continue reading if you own a device running on iOS 7 + (up to iOS 7.0.5).
If you are looking for some best jailbreak apps and tweaks for your iPhone 5 just before the release of iOS 6 untethered jailbreak, or if you landed on this post after you have jailbroken your device, here are few best and free tweaks and applications found in Cydia Store for your iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4/3GS.
Recently I was reading few articles on different tech blogs about the future of jailbreak. They all were agreed at one point that jailbreak is losing its charm and some of them were even saying that it’s now dead.
Sometimes a Cydia tweak or app prevents the working of another app. The same thing happened with Facebook version 5.2 on my jailbroken iPhone. If Facebook app is not launching on your iPhone properly, here is the solution.
This new app “Universal Video Downloader” has become one of my favourite app on my iPhone. I am using it since the day it was launched and I found it one of the best apps to download almost any type of video. I have already used it on some popular sites which I visit daily and found it flawless. Above all it integrates well not only with the native YouTube app but also with the recently released Google’s official YouTube app.
Earlier today Apple released iOS 6 B4 for developers which includes many bug fixes. The new update also brings some important changes for the end users. The most important one is that there won’t be official YouTube app bundled with the stock iOS any more because Apple’s licensing period with Google has ended, and now Google is working on standalone YouTube app which will be available through App Store soon. iOS 6 Beta 4 also brings new privacy settings for Facebook and Twitter. A new Bluetooth sharing menu is included for better sharing option through BT.
