iOS 7.1.1, iOS 7.1.2 and iOS 7.1 untethered jailbreak has now been released. We have covered it in detailed in separate posts given right below.
The jailbreak community is still recovering from the release of the Pangu untether for iOS 7.1.x, with many incompatible tweaks having been updated in compliance with the newer firmware. Activator, a tweak central to the Cydia scene as a whole, has just been given its customary bump to support the latest software, so if your device has been given the Pangu treatment and you'd like to call upon the services of Activator, join us after the break for all of the details.
The Pangu team might just have delighted the jailbreak scene with the release of an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1 - 7.1.1, but it's not without its share of early issues. Bundled within the package is an app called PPSync, which is known to cause certain stock apps to crash, and make the system feel generally unstable, and basically subject iOS to no-end of nuisance. The obvious solution, then, would be to remove this package post-haste, and below, we'll show you just how to do this.
We've been getting a lot of questions on whether it is possible to downgrade iOS 7.1 / 7.1.1 to 7.0.6 or earlier, and rather than try and respond to everybody, we thought it is better instead to consolidate everything we know about the state of downgrading into one, clarifying article. So if you're interested in reverting to an earlier firmware, please check the information below.
If you hate the iOS 7 power-off screen then you're going to love BetterPowerDown. When Apple finally released iOS 7 to the public last year, it's fair to say that it wasn't met with complete acceptance. Some of the design changes that Jony Ive brought to the iPhone and iPad had some people not just shaking their heads, but also longing for the more familiar look and feel of the versions of iOS that they were so used to.
At the tail-end of last year, we presented a guide that showed jailbroken iOS 7 users how to utilize the Cydia Store for the purpose of speeding up their devices. But if you don't, for whatever reason, happen to have introduced your device to the wonders of Evasi0n, we've outlined a few tips that could help you speed up your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running stock firmware, specifically for hardware that is old, like the iPhone 4, 4s, etc.
iOS 7 has just been released into the wild, and even though it has been a smooth ride for the majority of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users, it hasn't been without the usual spate of bugs and teething issues. Following on from the earlier reports that the folders-in-folders trick was still in business - something we thought Apple had blocked with iOS 7.1 - it now looks like the very same technique can be utilized to hide certain apps completely.
iOS 7.1, which Apple finally released to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users earlier on the month, brought with it a plethora of changes and enhancements including improvements to Siri, iTunes Radio and the introduction of CarPlay. But where iOS 7.1 giveth, iOS 7.1 also taketh away, and as well as plugging the Evasi0n jailbreak, the latest firmware also appeared to prevent a mistake of a feature that allowed for nested folders on the home screen. Now, though, there's a handy little workaround, and although it does require a little bit of extra effort, still does the same job.
With every new software update, particularly a semi-significant one like iOS 7.1, there's always a chance that the numerous changes implemented will leave a few lingering bugs, and with Apple having just released the first major bump to its mobile OS since September, it would appear that some users are encountering problems with the Personal Hotspot function.
The final version of iOS 7.1 download links have just been released by Apple for those on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. As well as bringing support for the Cupertino company’s recently-unveiled CarPlay feature, iOS 7.1 brings a host of smaller enhancements, as well as the usual supply of bug fixes and general performance enhancements. Full details and download information, as well as the full change log, can be found after the break.
