Rather, we should stress that “Activator beta,” which is available from Petrich’s private repository (more on this below), is the package to have received the update, though prospective jailbreakers shouldn’t be put off: this version of the software is remarkably stable and feels like a final release.
You can download Activator beta for iOS 7.1.x by adding the following repository to your list of “Sources” in the Cydia app:
Once added, Activator 1.8.4-rc1 should be available to download free of charge.
If you’re running an iOS 7.1.x-powered device, remember you can jailbreak the smartphone or tablet using the Pangu method: this can be downloaded free of charge at en.pangu.io, and versions of the software are available for both OS X and Windows.
Since Pangu launched for jailbreakers, a selection of impressive packages have appeared on the Cydia Store. These include xNotiLockColor, OneThumb, PopSearch, and HandsFree. The popular package Springtomize 3 also got an update adding iOS 7.1.x compatibility, too.
As mentioned, Activator beta for iOS 7.1.x can be downloaded on the Cydia Store free of charge. Just be sure to have added Petrich’s beta repository to your list of approved sources.
