How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm still running 6.0 and do not want to upgrade to iOS 7 but when I try to upgrade certain tweaks or install some new ones, Cydia automatically wants to upgrade Cydia Substrate (along with Activator, Flipswitch and Preference Loader).

I'm mainly curious if upgrading Cydia Substrate is safe if I'm still on iOS 6 and want to stay on it.

I do not want to take ANY chance having some malfunction of any sort because as I said, since I do not want to upgrade to iOS 7, restoring my phone is not an option.
