Would you like to get a little more out of your jailbroken iOS 7 device? Well, there’s a neat little trick that will allow you to enabled Apple’s hidden prototype settings or Springboard settings on any iOS 7 device. If you have an iPhone 5/5c or lower, you can check out the video above, while anyone on an A7 device (iPhone 5s, iPad Air, or iPad mini with Retina Display) will have to use the video below.
Both of these methods yield the same result. You’ll have access to Apple’s internal Springboard tools. If you’re using an iPhone 5/5c or lower, the hidden menu can be activated using Control Center’s dedicated button once you’ve installed. On an A7 device, you’ll need to press the “volume up” button in order to pull up the settings.
Below you’ll find the video tutorial for A7 devices. It’s a lot more complex than the above video due to Mobile Substrate compatibility issues on Apple’s latest devices, but if you’re a developer or an experienced iOS user, you’ll be able to pull it off. If you’d like to check out written steps and download links for the video tutorial below, check out the YouTube video’s description here, or the original thread on Reddit here.
Let me know what you think about these settings. Are they worth the hassle? The A7 process will be much easier once Mobile Substrate is updated, but until then, we’re stuck with this rather lengthy process. Fortunately, those on the other iOS devices will find the first video very handy.
