Hello everyone,
I own an iPhone 4 32GB which runs iOS 7.0.4 veery slowly, specially opening apps, switching between them, scrolling and animations. My question is if jailbreaking it will increase the performance in at least some of those matters. I've heard about some tweaks like Speed Intensifier, but I don't know. Would you recommend to jailbreak? Thank you in advance.

I currently am running iOS 7.0.4 jailbroken on an iPhone 4 32GB. Everything seems to be running very well since I installed the HiddenSettings7 tweak to speed up animations and such. This is essentially what they adjusted in iOS 7.1 i believe as i had the Beta 1 on my iPhone 4 and that ran pretty well. Although not many tweaks work yet, I think it is a good idea to jailbreak 7.0.4 as 7.1 may be patched. It is just a matter of time until MobileSubstrate gets updated and developers start pushing updates for their tweaks. A few tweaks here and there can make the iPhone 4 faster! If you need help, shoot me a PM and i'll try to help you out.

Just installed HiddenSettings7 but I'm not sure where the Hidden Settings are? Is it giving you access certain areas in Settings that we did not have access to or is this a totally separate app?

HiddenSettings7 should be accessible when you pull up control center. It should say 'SpringBoard Settings'. If you're not seeing it, uninstall through Cydia and then reinstall Mobile Substrate and then install HiddenSettings again.

Yeah I tried uninstalling HiddenSettings7, reinstalled Mobile Substrate and reinstalled HiddenSettings7 but that didn't do it. I'm on a iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4

Just keep trying that again, it took 2 tries for me. Let me know if it works.
