    I've got an eye condition that really is affected by bright light and blue tones and I didn't realize just how tremendously helpful the jailbreak tweaks flux and sbsettings were for me. I thought I wouldn't miss them much, but boy do I REALLY need them back.

    I have around 200 apps, but at this point I don't care if I have to do a clean install to get back to a jailbroken IOS. I'm on that latest IOS, what are my options for downgrading so I can jailbreak again? Please discuss

    Biggest determining factor, what device are using? Also, what is your blob situation looking like? Did you manually save them or only rely on Cydia? Post this info and we can help.

    If you have a 4S or 5, there are no options to downgrade. If you have a 3GS or 4, there still options. You would need valid shsh blobs to even have an option though

    What device do you have?

    If he has an A4 device he could also tether jailbreak 6.1.3. Hopefully the OP has one of those devices.

    I have a 4s and I wasn't saving blobs at all but relying on Cydia. I figured I wouldn't miss those tweaks much, but my eyes are acting up and they are essential. So it's a no go then? :/

    Wow, that's not good news. Never really thought much about an Android, but I'm starting to think about sacrificing a little security for a little freedom.

    Appreciate the info though.

    If these two tweaks were a must for you then why did you restore in the first place or were you forced to ?

    Yep, I've used it on my Mac and Windows machine for years, it's great.

    Did also send some feedback to Apple about incorporating it in the OS, but I'm not holding my breath.
