iFile Gets Updated For iOS 7 And It Works On iPhone 5s Greatly

If you've been following jailbreaking news and the latest jailbreak tweaks, probably you heard about a well known tweak called iFile, this tweak is considered as the Finder in iOS, it allows you to browse the entire root directory structure of your device. iFile is useful for pretty much all the reasons that the Finder or Windows Explorer is useful for desktops. With it you can view file attributes, install apps, delete files, save images to the camera roll and much, much more.

Today I will be very happy to tell you that iFile finally updated to support iOS 7 new design and to be honest, it looks amazing and thankfully it is working on iPhone 5s greatly.  Check out this video: 

iFile works good on iPhone 5s and the other 64-bit devices like iPhone 5c and so on..

The update is primarily an update to alter the look and feel of iFile to match that of iOS’ new redesign for iOS 7. You’ll notice the same clean white space ad blue icons that are prevalent throughout iOS 7 as a whole. From what I can tell, the update doesn’t really add much in the way of brand new features, but I’m still playing with it and testing it. It’s not like iFile really lacked many must-have features to begin with, but I’m looking forward to see if it will adopt things like AirDrop support.

You can use iFile in:
  • Installing .deb files that developers send me to test new apps and tweaks
  • Editing text and plist files for changing the way that certain apps work
  • Unzipping compressed files
  • Using it with Safari Download Manager to download files directly from Safari
  • Importing mp3s
  • Uploading and downloading files using the app’s built-in web server
  • Moving files to and from Dropbox and FTP
  • Using Bluetooth connectivity to send files to other devices that are running iFile
  • Copy, pasting, renaming, and moving files
You can find iFile 2.0 right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. As I stated, it does work out of the box with a jailbroken iPhone 5s right now, because it doesn’t rely on Mobile Substrate. You will, however, be unable to purchase iFile or verify your license at the moment on the iPhone 5s. This means that you’ll only be able to use iFile 2.0 in trial mode at the moment in some cases. At any rate, even in trial mode the app is fully functional.

Have you tried iFile yet on your iPhone ?
