Cydia running iPhone 5s

Ok, now that you’ve jailbroken your iOS device running iOS 7 with evasi0n7, what do you do? Which tweaks work and which ones don’t? This is one of the most frequently asked questions we’ve received this morning, so we figured we’d better start making a list.

Most tweaks that rely on Mobile Substrate aren’t working, as it’s currently broken, but there are a few that seem to be ok. Below you’ll find all of the iOS 7 compatible jailbreak tweaks that we’re aware of, broken down into those working, and those ‘sort of’ working…

Note: this is a crowdsourced list based on what commenters and readers have told us. This list is also heavily based on the work of Team-Sync iPhone Dev Team. We’ve only managed to test a handful of these ourselves thus far, on just a few device configurations. So your mileage may vary. This early in the game, it’s possible that your device model/iOS version could play a factor in whether or not a tweak is compatible. Also note that most tweaks will not run properly on A7 devices, although they may run well on older devices.

  • AirPlayServer
  • BadgeClearer
  • DateCarrier

Sort of works

  • Abstergo: installs, but then does nothing
  • Activator (beta): some things work, but gives a frequent error message
  • BytaFont7: you have to move the .app folder to the correct location, some have gotten it to work
  • Iconoclasm7: only one icon set works
  • Infiniboard: installs, but doesn’t do anything
  • SBSettings: missing some components, must install manually
  • Winterboard: it installs, but won’t install themes.
  • iFile: installs but registration fails

We’re going to try and keep up with this list throughout the day, adding and removing tweaks as we learn more. And then obviously over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be announcing all iOS 7 updates for major tweaks. So be sure that you keep checking back.

And if you haven’t jailbroken already, you can find evasi0n7 on our Downloads page. Those needing help with the process, can refer to our our evasi0n tutorial for Mac and our evasi0n tutorial for Windows, and our answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Also, if you find a particular tweak to work or not work on iOS 7, tell us about it in the comments below!

  • Gil Sayi

    I have not installed the jailbreak yet. Could anyone help and tell me whether Autoscroller works as of now? (that is the most critical one for me) Thank you!

  • Clint

    Accelerate installed successfully- appeared once in the settings menu before a reboot. I’ve tried an uninstall and reinstall (respring and reboot in between) still not appearing in settings. The same with f.lux. Regards.

    • Rikhil Makwana

    transparentvolume is probably the best new tweak for ios7! i dont know why they made the volume UI be so intrusive when u changed the volumeb but this tweak just makes sense

    • Erwinn

      Thanks for the info! Installed and working fine!

  • exintrovert

    ShowCase doesn’t work on 5s 🙁

    • exintrovert

      Showcase was updated today and it now works! 😀

      Cydia Substrate fixes a lot of things, like Activator. So far, I am still awaiting sbsettings to be fixed for 5s so I can show the date and free ram in the status bar.

      Still waiting for libhide too.

  • Avery Drummerboy McHugh

  • Wood1030

    Hi guys,

    • Peepdiss

      • Erwinn

        Like 100 people mentioned before, thats because 64bit is not supported yet for most of the tweaks… Wait for a mobile substrate update!

  • Jon Swenson

    How can I remove Cydia from my iPhone 5S, I have tried SBSettings and nope and I have tried other but no luck. Can anyone help?

    • Wood1030

      Why would you want to remove Cydia?

      • Jon Swenson

        I guess I just wanted to. I can always re-install it. But thanks for asking.
        Ok then How also can I remove SBSettings
        Or even hide both of these.

      • Wood1030

        But if you remove Cydia then you essentially remove the only reason or effect of having a jailbreak…all apps/tweaks are installed through Cydia.

      • Jon Swenson

        I should have said hide. I want to Hide SBSettings and Cydia. on My iphone 5s.

      • Fatehuhsiol

        Ur mad.

      • John

        SBSettings has a “Hide Icon” feature that you can use to hide both those, and any others. It’s in the settings for SBSettings.

      • Wood1030

        Sbsettings can be removed in the sources>packages settings pane. Just go there, find the app(s) you want to remove and uninstall.

      • Jon Swenson

        I will try and report back

      • Jon Swenson

        It worked to remove it!

        NOW, How can I hide Cydia!!!

      • Wood1030

        Just put it in (or create) a folder with other apps you don’t use often.

      • Wood1030

        Ahh, I suppose you could put them in a folder with a vague discription somewhere on your home screen

  • Jacob Rios

    can anyone tell me why my instagram shows question marks for everyone’s usernames? here is a picture of a random post showing the question marks. I assume it is because the ios 7 jailbreak or because of a certain tweak

    I downloaded BadgeClearer but it doesn’t seem to work, can any confirm that it does indeed work and I’m just doing something wrong?

  • Oliver Louis

    I’m running iOS 7.1 beta 2 on the iPhone 5. Almost all the tweaks work for me except Barrel and a few others like Swipey. When I try to install them it says “Unable to Purchase- This Product is not supported on your iOS version”

    How do I solve this? Is it due to iOS 7.1 beta 2?

  • Tyler Wolfe-Adam

    I’m surprised, I thought idownloadblog was more on top of their stuff than this. I’m not sure about all of them but installing StatusHUD or Gridlock fails because “This product is not supported on your iOS version.” It also clearly does not state that it is iOS compatible….

  • Wendy Santos
