Hello everybody,

Will Veency work on the new iOS 7 jailbreak? That is the tweak I must absolutely have available. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

As far as I know, Veency does not work on iOS 7.

Does not work for me, but this is the single reason I did the jailbreak.

I've tried this with Veency 0.9.3381 on a 4s (MD241C/A) with 7.0.4 (11B554a). It lets me connect but the screen is scrambled on the VNC viewer, almost like the scan rate is entirely off. I can connect and the screen changes as I control the phone (from the phone, not VNC). Input from the VNC viewer also has no effect on the phone.

Just in case it helps anyone with a potential answer;

I forgot I have the VNC viewer open. During the springboard restarting I noticed the Apple logo is scrambled, but the wheel of bars that come up while it loads showed up just fine. Once it goes to the lock screen it's scrambled again.

Just finished a 4S jailbreak on 7.04. I installed Veency but every connection attempt puts me in safe mode. Why?

Update: Veency will work without a password. Just no mouse support. Anyone know when that's coming?

It was just updated for iOS 7 today:

Veency 0.9.3400

I've tested Veency on iOS 7.0.4 with jailbroken iPod touch 5th gen and iPad Mini 1. It can serve but there are issues:

  • Image is distorted
  • Click/keyboard events do not work
  • Settings app Veency config menu disappears after and cannot be restored even after reinstalling Veency

I guess my answer is yes, but not fully.

Interesting. Thank you very much for the information on Veency. I hope complete compatibility will be restored soon because I use it as an accessibility tool.

Sorry for the late update. If you haven't tested already, the latest Veency version on Cydia works perfectly well with iOS 7.

Not for me. Iphone 5 on 7.0.4. As soon as a connection is established the whole thing crashes.

All the above symptoms have been replicated on my end as well. It's not working as of 2014-01-14(GMT+0)

It works on iOS 7.0.4 with iPad Air and iPhone 5.

I can't confirm that it is working on Iphone 5, although the results I'm getting are better than before (crash on login). It still crashes on login but can afterwards be used in safe mode (viewer only, no controls). I think additional fixes are needed, turning of input controls did not affect this behavior.

Remote control is also supported.
