BetterPowerDown: Tweak brings iOS 7.1 and iOS 6 style ‘slide to power off’ slider to iOS 7 devices

BetterPowerDown is a new jailbreak tweak by CoolStar that brings iOS 7.1 and iOS 6 style ‘slide to power off’ sliders to iOS 7 devices.

iOS 7.1 included a number of user interface refinements. One of them was the ‘slide to power off’ slider which was revamped with circular knobs. If you’re a fan of the circular knobs then check out BetterPowerDown.

You can also enable the Repower toggle in the Settings app (Settings > BetterPowerDown) to enable sliders to reboot and respring the device as you can see below.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, and want the iOS 6 style sliders back then you can switch the Classic (6.x style) mode in the Settings app  (Settings > BetterPowerDown > Mode).

Check out the video walkthrough of the tweak to see it in action via our YouTube channel:

BetterPowerDown is a nifty little jailbreak tweak. It seems a lot more intuitive to have the slide to reboot and slide to respring options when you long press the Power or Slide/Wake button rather than using toggles in Control Center.

BetterPowerDown is available on Cydia for $0.99.
