Happy New Year, jailbreakers! Jay Freeman (@saurik) has just published an update for Cydia’s MobileSubstrate, adding compatibility for Apple’s 64-bit A7-powered iDevices (the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad mini with Retina display). However, though this is great news, it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to go on a Cydia Store spending-spree yet. Instead, jailbreak apps and tweaks must be recompiled for 64-bit iDevices before users of Apple’s A7-powered iPhone and iPads can download and install them. The news surfaced online in a Twitter update from Freeman, in which he explained: “Substrate 0.9.5000 has been released, with support for iOS 7 and ARM64. (For extensions to work on ARM64, they must be recompiled to ARM64.)”

Here's hoping our favorite packages are recompiled for 64-bit iDevices in the near future.
