So let’s see what this new tweak can do for us, this tweak is also supportable for latest IOS 7.

Firstly you can put this home button icon anywhere on the screen so that you can access it from the place where you are comfortable. Plus you can also make it more transparent so that you can see through it and it come in the way of other things. You can also change the color of this button plus resize its size as you like. So all personalization options are available with this tweak and with that you can have set that icon as you like.
