Those of you that have iOS devices with a camera on them will notice that they come with an HDR feature in the iOS 7 Camera application. HDR stands for high dynamic range, and this feature makes it so two photographs, a light one and a dark one, are taken at the same time, and are then combined to create a photograph where nothing is too dark and nothing is too light.

In iOS 7.1, Apple implemented a new gold HDR badge in the Camera application when you enable HDR camera shooting mode. In earlier versions of iOS, the gold HDR badge doesn't appear, but the HDR on/off indicator at the top of the display turns gold when it's enabled, and white when it's disabled.

A new free jailbreak tweak called HDR Badge 7.0 by iOS developer PoomSmart enables the iOS 7.1 gold HDR badge in earlier iOS 7 versions of iOS, such as iOS 7.0-7.0.6, as shown above in the screenshot examples.

The HDR on/off indicator at the top of the display still changes colors as expected, but when HDR mode is enabled, the gold HDR badge will appear at the bottom center of the Camera interface, and it will disappear when HDR mode is disabled.

If you want to install this tweak for the sake of the aesthetics that it adds to the iOS 7 Camera application, then you'll find it in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for free. The tweak has no options to configure.
