Cydia 1.1.9 Brings an iOS 7 Visual Overhaul
Early Christmas Eve, saurik released version 1.1.9 of Cydia, which gets Cydia fully working on iOS 2-7. Although under the hood it's seen changes to run smoothly on iOS 7, the most obvious update is Cydia's visual change to iOS 7's style.
The visual overhaul receives a thank you from saurik to a few people: Surenix
for the new tab bar icons, myself for the UI images (icons!), and Ryan Petrich
for general UIKit help. And to Optimo for late night testing.
Not all aspects of Cydia are fully skinned to the iOS 7 style; these minor areas will be addressed in further updates. At this point, saurik wanted to make sure the updated client was released so work could focus on Mobile Substrate.
We sure have come a long way since February 2008, when Cydia was released
as an alternative package manager to Installer.
Merry Christmas indeed!
