[How-To] Switch Back to Substitute from Cydia Substrate V 0.9.7000

The shut down of Cydia Store was truly heartbreaking news for a significant portion of the jailbroken population. However, while the store so has to close, this didn’t mean the development on Cydia had to stop. Jay Saurik was quick enough to bounce back with a latest Cydia Substrate V 0.9.7000 having complete support for UnC0ver Jailbreak. Though the latest Cydia Substrate is considered to be the most stable, a significant amount of UnC0ver Jailbreak users are reporting stability issues with the same. These UnC0ver Jailbreak users are using iOS devices having an A7 or an A8 processor.
