The popular JellyLock
jailbreak tweak is back, only this time, with an iOS 7-style spin to it. JellyLock7
by iOS developer Max Katzmann is available in Cydia for free with support for iOS 7 and adds an Android Jellybean-like lock screen interface to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
You can see what the interface looks like above. It appears as just a circle at first, but when you tap and hold on it, you'll see a shortcut to your Camera application, a shortcut for unlocking your iOS device to its home screen, and shortcuts for up to five application icons (you can choose less than five if you want to).
After installing the tweak, you'll find a preferences pane in the Settings application where you can configure the tweak to your liking:
You'll find a kill-switch for enabling or disabling the tweak on demand, as well as a place to choose your application shortcuts. For an even more seamless experience, the tweak also lets you enable or disable Apple's stock Camera Grabber and disable Apple's stock Lock Screen unlock method so that you're forced to use JellyLock7. There's also a respring button so you can save any changes you make.
Under the appearance cell, which is pictured below, you'll find options for customizing how JellyLock7 looks:
You can hide or show application icon badges, enable or disable blurring the wallpaper background when operating JellyLock7, enable or disable landscape left mode on the iPad, choose a color for your circle, choose a size for your circle, and choose an opacity level.
JellyLock7 appears to run very smoothly, and for those looking for a really cool Lock Screen jailbreak tweak that offers not only the functionality of a cool new unlocking interface, but also a way to add application icon shortcuts to the Lock Screen, JellyLock7 is definitely the best option out there for free. If you want to give it a try, head over to Cydia right now and grab it – it's absolutely free.
