    For the longest time, well since February of this year my iphone5 was on 6.1.2, then last night, when I saw that iOS7 already has a jailbreak. Without any hesitation, I updated to 7.0.4 then jailbroke my device.

    No here's the problem, im not sure if its really like this or is it just me or something BUT when i press on backspace, regardless where I am; from notes - browsers (safari / chrome) anywhere where you can virtually type I have this problem, instead of deleted ONE(1) character at a time, backspace deletes TWO(2) characters at a time.

    Could someone please please please, enlighten me on the issue I'm facing. Is it a bug am I not alone on the issue (is it an issue?)

    Update: Correction on the virtually anywhere. On cydia if I was to search back space deletes one character per tap.


    Removing swipeselection resolved the issue. Must be issues still with swipeselection & ios7

    Well I'm running 7.0.4 jail broken and everything seems to be fine on my 5s. Not sure what's the problem with the 5. Restore and try it again.

    I have an iPhone 4, and I have exactly the same issue!
    JB went smoothly w/o any problems.
    Yet, with SwipeSelection, backspace deletes 2 characteres at a time.
    If I uninstall SwipeSelection, backspace is OK.
    I installed it again, and again - 2 characters deleted.
    Anyone would know about that???

    One addition: how strange this could sound, I have the impression that with SwipeSelection, the iPhone is much faster. It's like it reacts to my typing faster then when SwipeSelection isn't installed. Strange, huh?!

    Found the answer on the Mac Rumors forums:

    1) Go into Cydia and add the repo, TomLube's Repository - MyRepoSpace.com
    2) Install SwipeSelection (iOS 7 Patch)

    Issue should be resolved.
