  • 'Unlock7' Gives Your iOS 6 Device the Unlock Style of an iOS 7 Device


    If you like the way iOS 7 lets you unlock your lock screen from anywhere, and not with a slider at the bottom of the display, then you might be interested in trying out this new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Unlock7 by iOS developer bushe on your iOS 6 devices.

    Unlock7, as the name implies, makes it so you can unlock your iOS 6 device like an iOS 7 device. It will grant you the ability to swipe anywhere on the lock screen to unlock the device, rather than having to use the unlock slider at the bottom of the display, as you would usually have to.

    While the tweak functionally allows you to unlock your device the iOS 7 way, itís not very pretty. Your slide to unlock slider is still visible, so it still looks a little cheesy. On the other hand, if you were to go all out on making your device look like an iOS 7 device, you could install a WinterBoard theme, such as this one that we showed you back in June, to make your lock screen actually look like iOS 7 in combination with this tweak to give it the functionality of iOS 7. Both combined, you can have a real iOS 7 lock screen experience on your iOS 6 device.

    If you want to give the tweak a try, it's available for free in Cydia's ModMyi repository. It doesn't have any options to configure. We would highly recommend installing a WinterBoard theme to go with it, otherwise it's going to feel incomplete. The iOS 7 Lockscreen theme is available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository, and that theme seems like one of the better ones to use.

      I wonder if it could be incorporated to detect when your finger is sliding to unlock anywhere on the screen, but actually move the slider knob to the unlocked position instead of the whole Bottombar?
