Jay Freeman (Saurik) gave his thanks to Kyle Matthews for the User Interface images, Surenix for designing new tab bar icons which gives user a more clear view of icons and is in line with design of iOS 7Ryan Petrich for the general User Interface Kit help and designing, and Optimo for testing the latest Cydia update.


Not everything is perfect but Saurik made Cydia almost perfect by providing capability all the way back to iPhone OS 2.x. There are still some bugs that needs to be fixed. Regarding which, Saurik commented:

‘Please understand that there are still some things about this build that are “not quite right” (including the drop bar, 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.’

So, users should not feel bad because in next Cydia update, most of the fixes will definitely be made.
