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.
The new Winterboard version has been released now which supports iOS 7 fully. It is also compatible with ARM64 devices like 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.
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.
