    Hello, I am a jailbroken user on iOS 6, some app store applications require iOS 7 to be used. Is there any tweaks out there that would allow me to run these apps on my outdated iOS, Or is this just bot possible due to compatibility issues?

    You could try outsmarting the App Store by changing your version to iOS 7 but it's generally not recommended to do that. Worst case scenario, you would have to restore and lose your jailbreak

    And even if you edited the plist to make the AppStore think you're running iOS 7, the changes from 6 to 7 are so drastic I doubt it would work. I mean changing a plist entry doesn't provide your outdated software with new APIs and everything.

    this will not work. apple patched the app store trick recently and it identifies your iOS version by build number now. its either jailbreak, or all the apps you want.

    Won't you also be able to change the build number too?
