It should generally be a rule of thumb that if your idevice is jailbroken, you should stay away from brand new software updates. So we’d like to remind all of you jailbreakers out there to hold off on updating your devices to iOS 7.0.6. Famous jailbrekaer MuscleNerd tweeted earlier today:
“Same advice as last time! Stay away from 7.0.6 if jailbroken, and we'll update evasi0n7 if possible (this sounds like an important fix!)”
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more info so stay tuned!
The wildly popular BiteSMS 8.0 app has just gotten out of beta and is now officially available to download, bringing support for both iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s. Most jailbreakers are already familiar with the app but for those of you who aren’t, you’ll definitely want to check it out.
Apple has taken a number of steps to patch the iOS 7 Evasi0n jailbreak in the lastest iOS 7.1 software.

There aren't many iOS 7 ready app launchers in Cydia yet. There is Swipey, which lets you launch multiple apps from the Lock screen, but it costs a couple bucks. If you only care about one app very much, and aren't so concerned with a feature that will have you enter your passcode regardless then Fav will do just fine for you. It's available in Cydia's default repos, free of charge. Check out the rest of the article for a short video from a YouTuber and a few more details.
If you can’t see from the image above Apple has released version 7.0.4 of iOS. I love OS updates, they’re like little gifts, most of the time. With the most recent update Apple has fixed bug in FaceTime, that prevented the application from working properly for all users.
Updates for fourth generation iPod touch (6.1.5) and Apple TV (6.0.2) were also pushed out today.
