Here's How The Jailbreak App Store Cydia Might Look Under iOS 7
Though an official iOS 7 redesign for Cydia has yet to be released by creator Jay Freeman (@saurik), one keen jailbreaker has managed to port the jailbreak application store over to an iOS 7-powered iPhone, and in doing so provides jailbreak fans with an idea of what the Cydia app might look like once an iOS 7 jailbreak solution becomes available. Put together by jailbreak developer Cjori (@cjori), of Dashboard X fame, the process of porting Cydia to iOS 7 has been detailed by Redmond Pie. The website explains:
Cjori told Redmond Pie that he used OpenSn0w to tether-jailbreak iOS 7 on A4 based iPhone 4. Cydia was recompiled from source with the iOS 7 SDK and he manually debugged all of the issues encountered using various UNIX tools.The developer isn't planning on releasing his version of Cydia, and Cydia founder Jay Freeman has also added that Cjori's port is just that, noting that the jailbreak application store is a registered trademark and hinting that an official release will, of course, occur in time. Indeed, promising progress has reportedly been made on the iOS 7 jailbreak, though no release date has been announced, nor has information concerning the potential of iPhone 5s compatibility. There are plenty of reasons to hold off on updating to iOS 7 until a compatible jailbreak is available, and a demographic of iDevice users will be attempting to steer clear of Apple's over-the-air (OTA) software update - even if they're now in the minority. Below, we've included a number of further images of Cjori's Cydia port for iOS 7. Are you avoiding iOS 7 until a compatible jailbreak solution becomes available?
