The day all iOS 7 jailbreakers have been waiting for has finally arrived, as Jay Freeman aka saurik has just released an update for Mobile Substrate.
Mobile Substrate 0.9.5000 supports iOS 7 and 64-bit A7 chip.
saurik just tweeted the good news:
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.)

Even though evad3rs released the evasi0n7 jailbreak for iOS 7 more than a week back, jailbreakers with an A7 device such as iPhone 5s, iPad Air or Retina iPad mini haven’t been able to take advantage of the jailbreak as most of the jailbreak tweaks haven’t been working.
As saurik has mentioned with the release of Mobile Substrate for iOS 7 and 64-bit A7 chip, Cydia developers will now be able to make their compatible with iPhone 5s, iPad Air or Retina iPad mini by recompiling their tweaks for ARM64.
Please don’t expect the tweaks to magically work after you’ve installed the new version of mobile substrate, they will only work on your iPhone 5s and other A7 devices when the developers release an update for their tweaks with 64-bit compatibility, so please be patient.
Please note Mobile Substrate has been renamed as Cydia Substrate. Follow these simple steps to install it:
- Launch Cydia
- Tap on the Search tap, and search for Cydia Substrate
- Tap on Cydia Substrate from the search results
- Then tap on the Install button, followed by the Confirm button.
- Tap on the Restart SpringBoard button when prompted
That’s it. This will install Cydia/Mobile Substrate and Substrate Safe mode package for iOS 7 and 64-bit A7 chip.

Let me know how it goes in the comments.
Thanks Dangerous Dave for the tip!
