  • 'SwitchSpring' Lets iOS 7 Users Respring or Kill Apps By Swiping Up on Home Screen Card


    The iOS 7 untethered jailbreak was released only a few days ago, and Cydia was updated Tuesday morning to version 1.1.9 with a revamped user interface for iOS 7. Now, we can begin seeing jailbreak tweaks made solely for Apple's latest iOS 7.

    One of the first jailbreak tweaks created to improve on Apple's iOS 7 mobile operating system comes from a concept on Reddit by /u/mwi98. The tweak, dubbed SwitchSpring, was coded by iOS development team HASHBANG Productions, and makes it easy to either respring your iOS device, or kill all of the applications suspended in the App Switcher.

    After installing the tweak, users will be able to swipe up on the Home Screen card in the App Switcher, and they’ll get a prompt asking them if they want to respring their device, or if they want to close all of the applications suspended in the App Switcher. If the user ends up swiping up on the home screen card by accident, there's also a "Cancel" button to get out of the prompt.

    Notably, if the user chooses to close out of all of the applications in the App Switcher, the tweak will not close any applications that are currently playing music, so you won't have to worry about your tunes going silent when you want to free up some of your device's memory.

    SwitchSpring doesn't have any options to configure. SwitchSpring offers some useful functionality to users in a seamless interface that just makes sense. If you want to give SwitchSpring a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Name: SwitchSpring
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: HASHBANG Productions
    Editor's Rating:  5/5

    NOTE: MobileSubstrate isn't ready for the 64-bit architecture yet, nor are many jailbreak tweaks, including this one. Install on 32-bit devices only until further notice.

      Seems to be the case with most of the "working" tweaks.

      This exact procedure worked for me too! Its very odd because I had already rebooted my phone several times and reinstalled both MS and SpringSwitch multiple times to no avail... But this exact sequence worked.

      Iphone 4S ios 7.0.4

      Didn't work anyway.
      This is an issue after the iOS 7 jailbreak.
      After you reinstall MS, and you want SpringBoard tweak to take effect, you may need a respring.

      This is pointless if you have to still double click home button to get to the cards. Zephyr swipe up for multitasking tray is king

      Same. Thank you so much to OP. Suddenly other tweaks are working.
