Speed up iOS 7 With NoSlowAnimations Jailbreak Tweak

One of the biggest complaints against iOS 7 has been its sluggish performance due to the slow animations that occur when opening an app or a folder. Although Apple purposefully designed iOS 7 this way in order to create a more enveloping user experience, most people seem to prefer quick access without the aesthetic bells and whistles.

First Touch ID Jailbreak Tweak Hits Cydia

It didn't take long for the first Touch ID tweak to land in the Cydia app store. Virtual Home allows you to use your Home button to access the app switcher or return to the Home screen without actually pressing down on the physical button. The tweak basically transforms your Touch ID sensor into a virtual Home button, hence the name.

Virtual Home

Once installed, Virtual Home users can tap their Home button once to return to their Home screen, or tap and hold their Home button to open the app switcher in iOS 7. These gestures replace the need to press the Home button which gives it a much needed break from all your finger poking.

How can I fix Cydia error: Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of?

Sometimes Cydia on jailbroken iOS devices will run out of space in its data structure to host packages. The default repositories already contain approximately 40,000 packages, which leaves space for an extra 25,000 or so from repository sources added by the user. If this number is exceeded, you might see several errors including:
