    About once a week I'll accidentally blurt the wrong text message to someone unintended all because I see blue speech bubbles, assume it's any certain said friend, I type away and bam! it goes to one of my folks. :(

    A picture next to names in messages seems like something useful for me. There has to be something for this.

    i use bitesms and it has that feature. i'm not sure if there's any standalone tweak that allows contact photos (i think there might be but i wouldn't know of any since i use bitesms' contact photos feature)

    Have a look at Messages Customiser or SMSContactPhotos7

    ^^^This. I use Copic and it's compatible with BiteSMS as well.

    A lesser solution would also be Cyntact, Jay Freeman's (saurik) own tweak for contact pictures.

    He's on iOS 6 so that's probably why he suggested it

    Uhm…I think it's had some updates for iOS 7, but I'm not sure. Probably a beta – maybe. I'd have to go look up my email to the dev at one point. I think it was over iOS 7 issues.

    Cyntact, OTOH is upgraded to work with iOS 7.

    There we go. Add the iarrays repo: http://apt.iarrays.com

    Copic in the iarrays repo is for iOS 7. Note that once you add the repo the iOS 6 version of Copic will no longer be seen.

    Reviewing my problem is turns out that I was updating Copic and the betas eventually stopped working for me because they were iOS 7. Deleting the repo, uninstalling Copic and then adding it back from the default Cydia repo (Copic 3.2) restored it for me. So…my point to all that is that this is how I knew Copic had been updated for iOS 7.

    I use SMSContactPhotos7 from the BigBoss repo.

    Contact photos in Messages list & conversations.
