Ryan Petrich is back at it again, this time with a new jailbreak tweak that enables a hidden Topography mode found in the recently released Google Maps app. The tweak, available via Cydia on his beta repo, adds a fourth option to the sidebar featured within Google maps to easily enable Topography.
As it turns out, the Topography Mode enabled via this tweak was already built into the Google Maps app from the get go. Why Google decided to keep the feature disabled in the public release is anyone’s guess, but if you install this tweak, you can easily enable the option.

If you’d like to try out the Topography mode in Google Maps, then open Cydia and add Petrich’s beta repo to your sources. His repo is as follows: http://rpetri.ch/repo/
Once his repo has been added to Cydia, it’s just a matter of installing the Topography for Google Maps package, which is, of course, free of charge.
