    Hello,

    I am currently on ipad 4 ios6 jailbreak. I want to update to ios 7 jailbreak. Do i have to go via dfu mode to update ios first (as told in stick thread) and then jailbreak or there is some alternative way too? Will it be a clean install? That i would loose all my apps that are installed on ipad? And i think host files are not ok on my computer. I messed with them smetime back.. Do i reset them with tinyumbrella before updating?

    I read that cydia has been updated. Do i need to wait for mobilesubtrate update too or is it for only newer models?


    Pardon my ignorance
    Thanks

    Yes, you need to put your iPad into DFU mode so you can upgrade it to iOS 7.0.4. There is no alternative way.

    You won't lose any of your apps if you (1) make a backup in iTunes first and then, when prompted by iTunes, (2) restore from that backup. Your iPad will the same as it was ... except it'll be on iOS 7.0.4.

    If you develop issues with your host files, come back and let us know, but I think you'll be okay.

    Then, once iOS 7.0.4 is on your iPad, you can jail break it using the evasi0n7 tool. It's very easy to use, just make sure to follow the instructions beforehand and follow the prompts during.

    Lastly, yes Cydia has been updated for iOS 7. However, MobileSubstrate has not. Therefore, most tweaks (that require MS) don't work as they should, though some do. I understand the tweaks don't work at all with the iPad Air, but some with with older generations.

    So, you don't have to wait. Just know that a majority of the tweaks have not been updated on iOS 7 and therefore may not work properly or at all.

    Activator is still a WIP, but many of the issues have been ironed out with the latest release in the past 24 hours, which fixed the statusBar gestures that were not working properly if there was no physical statusBar (not an underlay) in the app such as Tapatalk.

    SBSettings is partially working, but Ryan Petrich has released FlipControlCenter, which gives you quite a few more toggles that you can add to your control center. SBSettings' power, option, dock and respring are either not working or working on and off (unreliable).

    MxTube hasn't been updated, but I use Protube from the AppStore, which does the same. Or, YoutubeToMp3 from Cydia, and using Bridge will get that into my Apple library.

    Open up Settings.app and look for FlipControlCenter. If you're not seeing it there, then you have to reinstall MobileSubstrate. Once you're in there, a list of toggles is available for you to sort through. The little 3 dash stacked column allows you to move the toggles up and down. Further up means close to the first slide of toggles, lower means farther back, or, you can disable some toggles. You can now slide the toggle portion to access more toggles with FCC

    FakeCarrier should be what you're looking for.

    It only shows fake carrier. Other options are grayed out and there is no option to add date to status bar.. I know it can be done with sbsettings but i dont want to use that.. Anythink else i can do?
