You can opt to have a static Photos application icon in iOS 7 that looks the same all the time, or you can use a new jailbreak tweak called LivePhotos
by iOS developer Home School Dev that will animate the Photos application icon with a slideshow of photos from your Camera Roll.
The way this tweak works is actually pretty neat. It will cycle through the most recent photos your Camera Roll in order, animating the Photos application icon as it goes. The photos just fade in and fade out, one after another. There are also options that you can configure to make the application icon look different depending on your tastes.
The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure those options:
From here, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, enable or disable a Photos app icon overlay, and enable or disable a blur for the slideshow. The blur acts as a privacy guard so that people around you won't necessarily be able to make out the whole photo, while you on the other hand will be able to make it out just fine because you've seen it before. The icon overlay, we feel, obstructs the photo slideshow, but if you want to enable it for looks, you can see what the difference looks like below:
The blur level can be adjusted to your liking with a slider – you can go from no blur at all, to just some blur, to a completely unrecognizable blur. You can also use another slider to configure the slideshow duration.
You can check out how the tweak works in action via the developer's demonstration video below:

If you want to add some customization to your iOS 7 Photos application icon, then check out LivePhotos. You're sure to have a one-of-a-kind Photos application icon, because most likely, no one in the world has the same images in their Camera Roll than you do. The tweak is available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for just $1.00 – it requires iOS 7 to be installed.
