What if someone took the iOS 7 icons and made them just a bit more pleasing to the eyes? One artist, who goes by the name of whduddn99 on Reddit, has posted an image displaying his take on just this concept. Hit the break. (more…)
While many would prefer to have a 4-digit passcode on their device to keep prying eyes out of their personal information and to protect against theft or otherwise, many iOS users skip security completely–trading for a faster device unlock and quicker access to apps. For those who take this route, the lock screen may be a completely useless barrier getting between them and the task they need to complete. Luckily, there’s an iOS 7 jailbreak tweak on Cydia that lets you completely bypass the lock screen if you wish and it’s called SkipLock. (more…)
Sometimes a tweak or two hits Cydia that’s absolutely, utterly, 100% useless. Usually, these are the same tweaks that take almost no time to make and users uninstall after 5 minutes of having them active. But this one’s different. This one’s not useless at all. This one replaces the iOS 7 slider arrow with a flying, caped, short-muzzle faced Pug. (more…)
InstaLauncher has been out for a while now, but this fantastic Cydia tweak was recently updated for iOS 7 and has never gotten any coverage here at iFans. This post intends to change that. The tweak, in essence, makes apps more easily accessible and quite literally seconds away no matter what you’re doing on your device. And it does this by organizing them alphabetically. (more…)
There’s a smart keyboard that’s been available for the last few generations of jailbreak called PredictiveKeyboard. Today, that tweak has been updated to support iOS 7 and, mostly, to support 64-bit ARM devices such as the iPhone 5s and iPad Air.
As you can most likely tell by the image above (not to mention the name of the tweak itself), the tweak starts predicting the words you’re typing to allow quicker and more efficient entry of longer words. PredictiveKeyboard will also provide error corrections for mistyped words that are–along with the predicted words–just one tap away in a fifth row above the standard keyboard.
PredictiveKeyboard is available right now in the BigBoss repo for just $2.39. If you’re not confident that the tweak will be something you’ll use, you can give it a try for 3 days absolutely free.
The iOS 7 jailbreak has been out for a while now, and the tweaks continue to stream in slowly but surely. As has been the case with every other jailbreak release, there are bound to be tweaks that are simply about giving you the option to tweak the visual appearance of any given feature. Chip lets you, as you can see above, customize the appearance of notification center banners. (more…)
The latest update the both the evasi0n jailbreak tool and its corresponding untether program fixes various security holes, as well as bugs for specific devices.
The latest version of the jailbreak tool is 1.4, and you can download it from the evasi0n website. If you have already jailbroken your device, you don’t need to re-run the tool. Instead, open Cydia and go to the “Changes” tab. Let Cydia refresh, and then upgrade the evasi0n untether package. The process will be complete after you reboot your device.
Be sure to update as quickly as possible, as it’s always best to stay as current as possible with this type of package.
Winterboard today was updated with long-awaited support for iOS 7 and 64-bit devices. While most of the core functionality of Winterboard already worked on most older iOS 7 devices, this update alleviates any remaining bugs and brings full compatibility to the iPhone 5s and new iPads.
Winterboard creator Jay Freeman (saurik) encourages any theme artists to report bugs or crashes. According to a Cydia notice, Winterboard version 0.9.3912 doesn’t yet support wallpapers in PNG, HTML or any other format. If you’ve installed Winterboard, let’s see how your device looks in the comments.
WinterBoard 0.9.3912 (just released) runs on iOS 7 and seems compatible with ARM64; theme artists are encouraged to report any crashes/bugs.

We are happy to announce that iFans now has its own repository for themes and tweaks. The iFans repo aims to be a collection of the best tweaks and themes — updated for iOS 7, of course — without massive advertisements or other annoyances. Get in, find what you want, and download it — we like to keep it simple.
Our repo is small, but we expect it to grow quickly as its popularity rises and more themes and tweaks are made available for iOS 7.
Adding the repo is easy: simply go to repo.ifans.com in Safari or any other browser, and follow the directions. You’ll need a jailbroken device, and evasi0n7 can help you with that! Be sure to check out the forum thread for more information. Developers and designers, information on submitting your tweak or theme is located inside the thread as well!
