    I keep reading about people using widgets on there iPhone or iPad just like Android. Tweaks like LockHTML3 and iWidget are some of the ones I saw on Cydia. I'm new to jailbreaking and was curious on what I need to install to be able to add and use widgets? What tweaks do I need to use or should have? Is there a place to get all these widgets, somewhere people post there work? I did try Google, it was just overwhelming.

    Thanks for helping the new guy out...

    Go to Cydia. Search for iWidgets and install the tweak. Anything listed in Cydia as an iWidget will work with iWidgets. Some of them you have to buy if you want them.

    Cydia also has categories, so if you just want a list of available iWidgets you can look in there.

    I'd like basic widgets from Dashboard X. Im going to give it a few more weeks until they release it for iOS 7.

    ----------

    Are you new to jailbreaking as in you need to know what to have to jailbreak or just to install the widgets? The previous post explains how to get widgets. You can jailbreak on 7.0.6 (which you are already on with your devices) with evasi0n. Use one of the tutorials online or find one in the forums.

    Happy Jailbreaking!

    Uh, yeah, as I understand it Dashboard X has not been updated for iOS 7 yet. At least I have not seen an update.
