Suddenly have pre-iOS 6 App Store on my iPhone 5

Not sure what's happened here. I restored my iPhone 5 to 6.1 following some issue I had with installing the wrong tweak, jailbroke it and now I suddenly have the iOS 5 App Store installed. It's optimized for the iPhone 5's display, too. Anyone know what's going on? I did not install any new package from cydia either.Click image for larger version

Not sure but if you find out how you did it please let us know. I prefer the old layout.

I also noticed the buttons on the bottom are in a different order. I am hoping that Apple moves back to this version as I too prefer it to the new one. Unfortunately I can't help you, OP. Sorry.

This happened back when iOS 6 first came out. The App Store would randomly go back and forth between the new and old look.

How did you do it?

You can't make it happen. It's a bug. Like I said, it randomly happened a lot when iOS 6 first came out and still happens to some people every once in awhile. It usually reverts itself to the new version again after awhile and sometimes after a reboot and almost always after a restore.

Its just a glitch. After you close out the app store and kill it in the multi-tasking tray you should go back to normal. I've had it happen a couple times.

How about that. I'd take the old App Store any day.

It's now back to the new style, but the tabs at the bottom are still at the wrong order.
