Cydia Substrate Updated to Support iOS 7 and 64-Bit iOS Devices

Jay Freeman a.k.a @Saurik has today announced the release of Cydia Substrate 0.9.5000 with support for iOS 7 and 64-bit iOS devices, such as the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. Now we simply need to wait for our favourite Cydia jailbreak apps and tweaks to be recompiled and updated by developers for 64-bit jailbroken iPhone and iPad devices.


Here’s what @Saurik said in a tweet earlier:

“Substrate 0.9.5000 has been released, with support for iOS 7 and ARM64. (For extensions to work on ARM64, they must be recompiled to ARM64.)”

To install the update, simply look for Substrate 0.9.5000 in the Changes tab in Cydia.

In case you still haven’t jailbroken your iPhone 5s, iPad Air or iPad mini with Retina display running any version of iOS 7 released so far, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you walk through the process.
