Ever since evasi0n7 jailbreak released, several users have been repeatedly complaining of Cydia errors with latest jailbreak tweaks. Though the lack of proper Mobile Substrate fix was initially the root cause of this problem, incompatibility issues with Mobile Substrate and PreferenceLoader with Cydia tweaks has been causing other technical issues such as Cydia tweaks not working or their preferences not showing in the Settings app.
In order to overcome the incompatibility issue, you could try reinstalling Mobile Substrate and PreferenceLoader every time you install a Cydia tweak. However, this process is very cumbersome and error-prone.
You can fix the Cydia tweak errors on jailbroken devices running iOS 7 by simply installing a tool called BootStrap, which enhances compatibility of Cydia tweaks with Mobile Substrate and PreferenceLoader.
In other words, when BootStrap is installed, you no longer have to reinstall Mobile Substrate and PreferenceLoader every time you add a new Cydia tweak to iOS 7.
The only exception was a redundant Cydia tweak compatibility issue with A7 devices like iPhone 5s, iPad Air and Retina iPad due to the new 64-bit arm64 processor architecture, which was later resolved with the release of Mobile Substrate 0.9.5000.
