How to add iOS 7 Control Center inspired toggles to iOS 6

By , Jun 16, 2013

iOS 7 COntrol Toggle icons

iOS 7 Control Toggle Icons is a new jailbreak theme that brings iOS 7 inspired toggles to lesser firmware. The toggles, based on those that appear in iOS 7′s new Control Center, help bring the look and feel of iOS 7 to jailbroken iPhones.

Designed by renowned designer, Surenix, the toggle theme integrates with NCSettings, and requires WinterBoard. It’s also been recommended that you add a blur effect tweak to the Notification Center window, further emulating the signature style of iOS 7.

I’ve installed iOS 7 Control Toggle Icons on my iPhone, and I’d like to show you how it all comes together. Check out our hands on video walkthrough after the break…

After installing the theme, you’ll need to venture into WinterBoards’s settings to enable the theme. Once the theme is enabled, head into the stock Settings app and locate the preferences for NCSettings. Select the theme selection under the Appearance section, and enable the iOS 7 Control Toggle Icons theme.

Now, when you slide down Notification Center to expose NCSettings, it should showcase this new theme, which looks very similar to iOS 7′s Control Center. To further replicate iOS 7, Surenix recommends adding a blur effect tweak for Notification Center to the mix. I decided to use Ryan Petrich’s FastBlurredNotificationCenter tweak, which, in my opinion, works best. You can find that package on Petrich’s beta repo: http://rpetri.ch/repo/.

iOS 7 Control Toggle Icons is a great looking theme for NCSettings users. Even if you’ve never used NCSettings in the past, now you have even more of a reason to do so. Best of all, iOS 7 Control Toggle Icons is a free theme available right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. In fact, all of the packages required for this look, NCSettings, iOS 7 Control Toggle Icons, WinterBoard, and FastBlurredNotificationCenter, are free of charge on Cydia. Let me know what you think about this new theme in the comment section below.

    this doesn’t exactly looks iOS 7, but its nice nevertheless :)

    • Surenix

      The only thing that limited me was the container size (being smaller) but other than that, it’s almost a 1:1 thing. Thank you :)

    winterboard? ughhh

    • Dallas Groot

      It actually doesn’t use winterboard

      • to86

        ‘Designed by renowned designer, Surenix, the toggle theme integrates with NCSettings, and requires WinterBoard’

        Or is that a mistake?

      • Dallas Groot

        No, NCSettings doesn’t have winterboard as a dependency. You can try it for yourself.

      • Jeff

        Right, but the theme itself does.

      • Surenix

        For the full experience (and will not introduce lag due to a small portion of image being used).

      • Necter

        It crashes to safe mode without activating it in Winterboard esp on iPhone 4 where I tried it 10 times– crashed all 10x.

  • Andrew

    NCSettings is just perfect. No need to install Winterboard for enhanced lag experience.

    • Hugh Jassol

      Winterboard really doesn’t deserve its negative stereotype. At this point, this is just an old wives tale.

      What devices are you guys still using? How heavy of a UI theme etc.?

      I mean come on, if five years ago an old iphone 3G could handle Winterboard …obviously our current devices should be more than capable.

      I find it hysterical that Winterboard has a reputation for lagging a device yet all the sheep continue to run in droves to install terrible tweaks like Auxo & Velox.

        Have them on my iphone 5 and no problem what so ever …

      • Nour Khaled

        And the battery

      • Elias Chao

        I tried to use Zephyr + CardSwitcher, when I set “From Screen Bottom” as a Activate Method, my iPhone 5 just respring….

        Is there a “Control Center-like” tweak?

      • TesticularFortitude

        Lol… So true.

    • Mathi_11

      Or you could just get iOS 7 Beta instead ;)

      • Milad Khahil

        Don’t want to lose the jailbreak ….

      • Tien Nguyen

        Plus it’s only a beta which comes with plenty of bugs and unfinished stuffs so… It’s just not worth losing the jailbreak altogether.

        Though I must say it’s really tempting and I long for the day of the final release :)

    • Cameron Chao

      which iOS 7 theme? specific author please.

      • Milad Khahil

        AR7

    • randall young

    • randall young

      Don’t forget LivePapers, for your live Lockscreen, etc…

    • Ian

      Copying…

      Oh, you witty boy you!

    Wow I’m impressed iDB. Ever since iOS 7 has been announced I’ve been hooked on to your blog. Great job in covering all these details – u actually made a video walk through of such a small jailbreak theme!! Keep it up :) U’ve earned another loyal reader :D

  • Surenix

    Just to confirm, installing WinterBoard will not lag your device, unless you go heavy on a theme which. In this case, all WinterBoard will do is display the NCSettings icon without a “box” containing it to complete the look. You don’t have to use WinterBoard after installing it but you’ll be missing out.

    And it’s free, why not? :)

    • Rith Kiri

      Please udate auxo toggle like this too

    • Mohammed Sahib

      This is what I like about you Surenix: You make a nice tweak, release it for free and then have the trouble to come check up on the comments for feedback and clarification. Kudos to you.
      P.S: I don’t jailbreak. :) :P

      • Surenix

        Thank you :)

  • Georhans

    Jeff ? How did you remove the box container outlines in ncsettings and on your notification center elements overall? I like that but can’t seem to find out on how to do it . Looks clean

    • Georhans

      I just got an update for a ios 7 theme 3.1 by pw5a29 that updates the notification center . It removes the outlines / boxed frames . All good. That’s what I need it.

  • Fardeen Beharry

  • Girish

  • Cameron Chao

    iPhone 5 users please stop complaining about Winterboard, it doesnt effect your device whatsoever.

    • Surenix

      Cheers!

    Pro Tip: Install “Translucent Notification Center” to remove Weather and other widget backgrounds for more of a iOS 7 look . Requires Winterboard.
