How to Change Your Cydia Icon for iOS 7

These are instructions on how to change your Cydia icon to one that matches the look of iOS 7. As you may know, saurik recently updated the design of Cydia to match Apple's new operating system. As of yet the icon has not received a similar design and thus numerous redesigns have been posted by members of the community. Here's how to install them!

Note, on this tutorial we will be using iFile. Alternatively, you can navigate to Root/Applications/Cydia.app using iFunbox, or iExplorer. You can also SSH [Windows] [Mac]. Note that before you can use iFunbox or iExplorer on iOS 7 you must install afc2add from Cydia! Otherwise your device will not be seen! The evasi0n7 jailbreak for some reason did not include this package automatically.

Step One
Jailbreak your device. You can find instructions on how to do that here.

Step Two
Launch Cydia from your Springboard.

I didn't know Cydia was stupid. And why are people asking about ios 8? iPhone 6? Fuck, be happy with what your getting. My 5S is looking nice with f.lux right now and have patience young jailbreak grasshoppers, if you wanna erase cydia cause you can't get outta a bootloop... Restore your phone and put it on craigslist and buy and android.
