CopyDock Gives You The iOS 7 Dock In iOS 6 [Jailbreak]

copydockbanner

iOS 7 isn’t for everyone. With its brightly-colored, flat candy chiclet design, it’s an update that many people are going to find jarring after playing in Scott Forstall’s skeuomorphic playground for so long. In fact, given how polarizing iOS 7 is, I imagine some long-time iOS users might decide not to come along for the ride at all.

Even if you hate iOS 7, though, there are some elements to love. For example, the new dock. Sure, functionally, it’s exactly the same, but the frosty two-dimensional glass looks just so much better than the faux-3D nonsense that was going on before.

Enter CopyDock. For jailbroken iDevice owners, CopyDock strips out the iOS 6 dock and replaces it with the iOS 7 dock. Simple, beautiful, and free. You can find it in the BigBoss repo on Cydia. Now how about bringing Control Center to iOS 6, jailbreak devs?

    Can you use the same tool to put the iOS6 dock on iOS7?

    Too bad it looks almost nothing like iOS 7′s dock.

    Actually, there is SBSettings, or NCSettings that do pretty much the same thing, and more, than control center

    Too bad it looks almost nothing like iOS 7′s dock.

    I agree, it actually looks better than on iOS 7. Much more subtle, not so blurry.

    Is there a way to do the opposite? iOS 6 dock on iOS 7?
