Fancy is now available on Cydia

By , Jan 20, 2014

Fancy

Fancy, the awesome jailbreak tweak that colorizes iOS 7, is now available for download on Cydia’s ModMyi repo for $0.99. The tweak, which has been highly anticipated for a couple of weeks, is from Mitch Treece, the same developer that brought us the Touch ID enabled tweak called Touchy.

Treece labels Fancy as “the simplest way to colorize iOS 7’s incredibly dull UI.” I tend to agree. Watch our video walkthrough inside, and let me know what you think about it in the comments.

You can find our full preview of Fancy here.

  • Vanya Leitao

    Like it a lot!! Works rather well, and the range of colors and choices does not disappoint!!

  • Ben

    FINALLY!

  • Blahfoe

    Looks nice

  • T1rell

    Great tweak! makes all the theming troubles with winterboard that arose with ios7 disappear and makes updates for tweaks like colorkeyboard obsolete. For 99c its a must have.

  • Matheus Lisboa

    So… No black then? Great tweak though

    • T1rell

      You get black if you dont select a color and set alpha to maximum

      • Andy

        Black or dark grey is the reason I’ll get this tweak.

      • Chris Wagers

        Everything is good but keyboard is like a light gray not solid black like everything else. Except the spotlight keyboard which is nice and black. Any ideas?

      • Matheus Lisboa

        Oh thank you buddy

  • Malan Raja

    I’d love to see an update where we can create custom colours from a palette.
    Good tweak.

  • Simone

    What no pink??? Please add pink!! Haha xoxo

  • Mads Teland

    This time is only RGB sliders, but I wish you can also choose color you want to have without to use RGB sliders ;)

  • Chris Gilmore

    Overrides are not working for my 5s.

    • Skoven

      Not working on my regular 5 as well… :/

    • Skoven

      Yeah that works… but you then have to set each element colour separately :/
      The dev. will properly fix the issue soon.
      Anyways… nice tweak :)

  • jocastro

    battery drainer?

    • Maxim∑

      no its just changing the color

  • FrankensteinBlack

    Any 4S owners try it yet? There is a disclaimer…

    • on3simpleclick

      works just fine on my 4S (: black looks so awesome! lol

      • Poo

        Thanks!

  • InfinitePlusOne

    Nice tweak but I unjailbroke it. Battery drained too much… Lagged as well.

    • Inseltraeumer

      Hmm, but why would such a tweak drain the battery? It’s basically just a variable that’s changed and it affects the colour of the blur effect that takes place anyway

    • Skoven

      Proof?

  • patmack

    This tweak doesn’t change color of notification center or keyboard on my ipad mini or my ipod touch.

    • http://www.bearsstillsuck.com/ Simon

      I have Bloard installed and had to Enable it to get the keyboard to work. Looks great now though!

      • patmack

        Thank you, Bloard worked, the keyboard looks fabulous!

  • Isa Altintas

    Does anyone have screenshots how the colors effect the keyboard?

    • http://www.bearsstillsuck.com/ Simon

      This is what it looks like with Bloard enabled. Needed it enabled for the keyboard to change but it looks great!

      • pally

        @stephenmichaelsimon:disqus what is your font?

      • Joshua Bryant

        Font?

  • Dalton

    Anyone else with a 5s having issues? Nothing changes for me

    • Alex-V

      make off….global tint :)

  • ✪ aidan harris ✪

    I’ve got crashes left right and centre on my 5s since installing this tweak. Perhaps I have a conflicting tweak of some sort but I can’t be bothered to debug…

  • zak

    iPhone 5s boots in safe mode with this tweak

    any fix?

    • Alex-V

      not here…mmhhh…maybe you have any other tweak to set colors..?

    • Jeff

      try disabling your passcode.

      • zak

        why would that work?

      • Jeff

        i went to the creators twitter and he suggested it, worked for me too.

    • Skilachi

      Same here….

  • Lyfe

    The minute I installed it, it crashed my springboard three times. I’m using a 5s. Anyone else having issues?

    • Alex-V

      not on my 5s

      • Lyfe

        It seems as if when I took off bloard , fancy started to work fine.

      • Alex-V

        thats what i thought some posts ago…if theres a tweak installed and used that can color a thing that fancy also can color :) thx for let us know

      • http://www.bearsstillsuck.com/ Simon

        I guess I could uninstall Bloard but it is working right now so not sure if I should mess with it. Might be conflicting though too I guess…

      • Lyfe

        It’s up to your discretion. I just went ahead and got rid of it because I no longer needed it with Puck. You can customize everything from the tweak.

      • http://www.bearsstillsuck.com/ Simon

        Actually after I got rid of it the keyboard looked very plain and not nearly what my screenshot above looked like. I have since reinstalled Bloard.

    • Ahmed Malick

      Do u use complex passcode?

      • Kyle Vogt

        I had to disable complex passcode. My phone would just crash on start up and go into safe mode otherwise. I haven’t tested a simple passcode yet.

  • Z_Atout

    How did you fix the Notification centre problem you had in the video? I’ve also been having it but can”t seem to fix it :( Anyone know how?

    • Alex-V

      what problem..?

  • Justine Cepriano

    It’s working in iOS 7.0.4 iPhone 4S

  • GzyOnline

    if this will truly change the color of the keyboard, it’s great!!! :-D Although I do miss ColorKeyboard though.. very much!

    • http://www.bearsstillsuck.com/ Simon

      This is pretty much the iOS 7 equivalent IMO. CK wouldn’t look right on 7 to me either.

      • GzyOnline

        can’t get a true black keyboard using the Fancy tweak :-/ .. especially in Messages, it’s gray due to the white background/wallpaper in the conversation, which means there’s no way to eliminate the transparency using Fancy, even though when you adjust the RGB/A it leads you to think that you are.. only way I can get a true black keyboard in messages is if I use Messages Customiser and change the wallpaper to black. I would like a true black keyboard globally on my iDevice.

        can’t wait for fr0st’s Dark theme to come out, if ever? Ideally, I would like to have my 5S in Invert Colors Mode but not have it effect the icons & photos

      • GzyOnline

        Messages Customier [update] to the rescue! changes Messages UI and has option for a Black Keyboard!! It’s aMazing! I love it!!!!… (until biteSMS release that supports themes!)

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/E1SUNZ Sunny

    Anyone tried it on the 4s/4? Any problems?

  • illK†Δ

    I like the many possibilities. Have it a dark grey to match the iOS 7 black keyboard.. Blends real nice

  • Matthew Cooper

    Puts me into safe mode

    • Shawn Schnell

      Same issue here on my 5s

      • Shivam Semwal

        Yea, I have an iPhone 5S. Is it not compatible with A7? I thought it said it is….

      • Shivam Semwal

        Fixed, remove your passcode. Terrible fix though.

  • Diego Gastón Milano

    Nah, I pass.

  • Shivam Semwal

    Could dockshift and Messages customizer be the culprit for me going to safe mode after installing this?

  • GT

    Does anyone know if it works on iPhone 4?

  • Hugh Martin

    Just installed on my iPhone 4 and although no pre-set colours you can custom your own colour with the R G B settings which means you can use black if required. Brilliant!!!!

  • weztimonial

    Dev said the override not working with global enabled. Will be fixed in the next update.

  • Aaron

    Totally pointless without the colour options for 5s… my gold 5s would look AWESOME if I could change the global colour to a goldish hue. Useless, for me, til then.

  • Jonathan

    Blue iPod Touch/iPhone 5c
    Red = 0%
    Green = 44%
    Blue = 52%
    Opacity = 75%

    • Jeff Colby

      im referring to the dark grey status bar and his bubbles and message background, not the blue keyboard

      • Jonathan

        Message Customizer (or customiser, can’t remember lol)

      • Jeff Colby

        have message customiser, cant adjust the status bar with it! blah!

      • Jonathan

        If you ever figure it out, will you let me know please?

  • Design by Adrian

    Can you make things black with white text? The reddish tone in the example made the text red too… that would make it hard to read.

  • G-HaB

    NICE!!!!!

  • Guest

    It works for the Iphone 4 only when the global tint colour is selected, individual colours for banners, notification etc etc cannot me selected. :(

  • Theguy

    It works for the Iphone 4 only when the global tint colour is selected, individual colours for banners, notification etc etc cannot be selected. :(

  • Ahmed Malick

    The reason why this tweak crashes is when u use complex passcode instead of simple passcode. Change it to simple passcode and it won’t crash.
    Was having the same issue but now it is working perfect.
    Great tweak keep up the good work. Cheers

  • Ashleigh Scandrett

    It dosnt work on iMessage for me!
    Any ideas?

  • Ian Kimbriel

    auto crashes on iphone 5s

  • Mark

    Don’t buy it. Use the cracked version from insanely. The dev doesn’t email back and is very slow updating. Check Mitt Treece twitter feed. A lot of phones do not work with this until he issues and update. Try the cracked version first before you waste your money.
