Even though September 10th is around the corner it is a long way since we will see a tethered jailbreak. It is rumored that evasi0n will break the ice which the tool developed for iOS 6 will get support to jailbreak iOS 7. There are users who already installed iOS 7 beta 6 but most of us who depend on jailbreak are not ready to make this huge step or prepared because there are users who don’t know what to do with that iOS 7.0 ipsw file or to install iOS 7.
However, whoever had the chance to test one of the beta’s can back me up. Almost all the new cool features that you find in the new iOS 7 are more like copycats of cydia tweaks and apps. But there are also new things that the jailbreak community borrowed as well. So the main goal for us today is to make our iDevice look like its running iOS 7. In order for this to work you will need to have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch jailbroken. If you don’t get yourself a jailbreak tool like evasi0n, redsn0w, sn0wbreeze and depending on your operating system if it is a mac, windows or linux follow the necessary instructions.

The following list of cydia tweaks is going to change the way you interact and feel with your gadget to that one with an iOS 7.

We all seen a lot of youtube presentations of the new iOS app switcher and the best tweak that fills this gap is Auxo which is not a simple app switcher it is also a good companion on helping you toggle like your WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode and many more other things that you need.


Next we need to change the appearance and we can do this with Winterboard. Winterboard is not theme but a theme manager and using cydia you can browse or search some of the themes that can make your UI look new and combined with DeepEnd a tweak that simulates perfectly the parallax effect you will be fooled easily that you are running iOS 7. Also LiveClock will make your Clock icon app indicate the proper hour.

Another feature that you find in the new iOS is backlist but no worries there is also a tweak that brings to your jailbroken device this function. It is called iBlacklist. This tweak is not just a simple blacklist app you can also make custom blacklists, white lists and many more.

Next on the changing list is the Notification Center where the functionality of this part of the OS is enhanced by one of the most used tweaks in the jailbreak world, SBSettings and NCSettings, with toggles and other functions that will ease the way you share information on social networks.


If you love the new photo filter that apple designed you will please to hear that there is also a tweak that simulates this new feature, and its name is PhotoFilters. The same story goes for Airdrop, where Instahare helps you transfer files wirelessly between devices.

Now iOS updates apps automatically and you can do this with all your cydia apps and tweak using Auto App Updater.

And now last but not least is the lockscreen where with the help of LockInfo or IntelliscreenX you can change the way you interact with your information via lockscreen.
