Cydia Finally Updated For iOS 7

Ladies and gentlemen, please let me introduce for you Cydia 1.1.9. A new update for Cydia has just released which completely redesign Cydia store to support iOS 7 new GUI design. The new update of Cydia comes after a hard work from Saurik and other group of hackers in building a new design for Cydia...

Below I've uploaded a group of pictures from inside Cydia store and the design looks beautiful and well made. Now you can quickly update Cydia to its new makeover by following these steps:

STEP 1: Tap on Cydia store from your iPhone's homescreen
STEP 2: Now wait until Cydia reload data as usual.
STEP 3: Now you will be asked to make a complete Update, tap on it.
STEP 4: That's it, wait until everything is finished up and Cydia will restore itself.

Saurik explains the reasoning and work involved with the updated version of Cydia, and it’s impressive:
Due to evasi0n 7 having been released with an unofficial build of “Cydia”, I had to upgrade Cydia via a package. This is more complex, as packages I release in my repository have to work for all users, not just those on the latest firmware. I have managed to get Cydia 1.1.9 working on iOS 2-7.
The fact that he was able to maintaining compatibility back all the way to iPhoneOS 2.x is crazy. That no doubt had to take a ton of work and regression testing in order to pull off properly. For that very reason, Saurik explains that there may be some underlying issues that still need fixing:
Please understand that there are still some things about this build that are “not quite right” (including the dropbar, which I want to have work like the iTunes Store’s song preview bar, but right now is simply broken). I needed to get this out so I could move to Substrate, and thereby kind of hacked that together.
Now here's some screenshots for your new Cydia and how it looks like:

 And finally here's how Cydia will look like on iPad:

So how do you find the new Cydia ?

You can find the updated version of Cydia Installer and UIKit Tools on Saurik’s very own Cydia/Telesphoreo repo.
