iOS 7 jailbreak tweak developers have been busy this week as more awesome new jailbreak apps arrived on Cydia than I could even keep up with! Showing up in popular repos like ModMyi and MacCiti and Big Boss, it was hard to pick which were the best new iOS 7 tweaks for January 15 -21, 2014. I finally whittled the list down to 10. Check out my favorite new Jailbreak tweaks for iOS 7 devices like the iPhone 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini and more. Enjoy!
Best New iOS 7 Cydia Jailbreak Apps 2014: Controllers for All by @cjori
Hands down, the most revolutionary iOS 7 jailbreak tweak to hit Cydia this week was Controllers for All. This tweak brings PS3 controller support for a ton of games with no configuration needed! According to the developer, @cjori, Apple added a great game controller API in iOS 7 that a lot of game developers are taking advantage of, but the MFi controllers are extremely expensive! Controllers for All addresses that issue by starting with support for PS3 controllers, and will add more controllers support down the road. Controllers for All already supports every game that's been updated with iOS 7 controller support in mind, and does it with an extremely simple setup, one time pair using your computer and you're done! No other configurations ever needed again! This tweak is well worth the $1.99 pricetag in my opinion. The tweak can be found in the ModMyi repo. To purchase, click here
Best New iOS 7 Cydia Jailbreak Apps 2014: Slo-mo Mod by PoomSmart
Another great iOS 7 jailbreak tweak that although it has a few kinks to work out is something most will enjoy. With this tweak, users can enable iPhone 5s Slo-mo video capture for unsupported devices like the iPhone 5 with included options for setting the slo-mo frame rate, forcing Slo-mo editing for all videos, setting Slo-mo rate and adjusting the slow part of the Slo-mo video volume. At this time iPhone 4, 4S and iPad 2, 3 DO NOT support 60 fps Slo-mo due to hardware limitations. You must set the frame rate lower or equal to 30 fps to use otherwise higher settings cause Slo-mo not to work or camera crashing. In addition, in order for Slo-mo Mod to work on a non-iPhone 5s device, you'll need to download a Cydia package called Burst Mode. This tweak is also available free of charge in the Cydia Store. This tweak is free in the Big Boss repo. Give it a try.
