How many times have you asked yourself “how can I add today’s date as well as free RAM info in my Status Bar?” If you’re anything like me, it would be about zero time. But let’s me honest, we aren’t all looking for the exact same things, and chances are you may be looking for such a tweak.

If that is the case, then let me introduce you to StatusModifier, a jailbreak tweak by Firemoon777 that was released earlier last month on Cydia. The tweak, as the name suggests, lets you modify parts of your Status Bar by hiding items, but also by letting you add the date and free RAM info…

I came across StatusModifier a couple of weeks ago as I was looking for a tweak to hide the carrier info from my Status Bar. As it turns out, StatusModifier can do that, and much more.

While not as thorough as Springtomize 3, StatusModifier still lets you hide a bunch of items from your Status Bar such as the time, signal bars, carrier, etc… This is what I initially used StatusModifier for, but those of you who like to take their tweaking one notch up might like to have the freedom to add custom date and free RAM available in the Status Bar as well.

StatusModifier comes with a date format builder that allows you to add info to the Status Bar on the fly. You can easily add seconds, the day of the week, the month, the year and free RAM info from an easy to use builder, straight from the Settings app. A slider is also available to let you adjust the refresh rate of the available memory info.


StatusModifier is a fairly solid tweak if that is what you’re looking for. I particularly appreciated that no respring was necessary when adding items to the Status Bar (although you must respring if you want to hide items such as carrier name). I also liked the fact that I was able to display the date in the format of my choice, thanks to the handy builder.

StatusModifier is completely free on the ModMyI repo. If that’s something you’d be interested in, make sure to give it a try. Note that another app named StatusTime+ was recently released in Cydia. While I didn’t try it, it appears to me it only lets you customize the time.

  • Infineon Labs

    Anyone know if there is a way of limiting notifications so that they only appear on one portion of the lockscreen? If so, how?

  • Adrian

    SBSettings used to add date

    • JB

      and free mem

  • Chris Barnett

    “released earlier this month on cydia”
    It’s February 😀

    • That’s what happens when you hold a post for too long without publishing it 🙂

      I fixed it. Thank you

      • Aimon

        Hahaha guys u got to admit that these tweaks are getting ahead of you

      • That’s true. So much is being released/updated every day that it’s hard to keep up

      • Ninja Banana

        pshh lol

  • Micaiah Martin

    It was actual awhile ago because I iMessage the dev to ask if he could add a free memory function.

  • al7oot

    What’s the name of the theme ?!

    • Straightshoota

      The theme is circulus

    • Wai Kang Lin

      install icon masks:))

    • Straightshoota

      The name of the theme is Circulus

  • David Woje

    Anyone know how to remove just the “am” and “pm” from the time on the status bar?

    • Jonathan

      Cloaky. Inside you can set a custom time frame. It’ll be weird at first, but it tells you everything. For example, EEEE = month and day in the statusbar. You’ll see it in there. Reply if you need more help.

    • Jeremy

      If you use this tweak, just make sure the “a” character is not in the format: (e.g. HH:mm for date format would just be the military time hours and minutes, with no AM or PM, no date, and no free RAM)

      • So with the way you’re describing, I can’t use non military time?

      • Jeremy

        Not sure. Based on the screenshots in this post, my guess would be no. But you can play around with it and see. Or alternatively, you can check out the tweak mentioned by Jonathan

      • LocalH

        You can. My current string is:
        EEE M/d/yyyy | h:mm:ssa | FM

        Which gives me:
        Sat 2/1/2014 | 12:25:29PM | 28MB

      • Jamessmooth

        Very helpful. Thanks.

      • Caleb Fletcher

        How do you make it lower case? If I just type it, it doesn’t work.

      • Caleb Fletcher

        12:00 May or may not be military time,,,does it still say 3:00 or 15:00?

      • LocalH

        It’s 12-hr. Right now, my status bar says “8:02:32PM”.

        In regards to your other post, you can copy and paste my string if you like it as-is, or you can copy it to Notes and edit it if you wish to change it. If you like the leading zeros (“08:02:32PM”) then put two lowercase h’s instead of one.

      • LocalH

        Oh, and if anyone prefers the little centered dot instead of the pipe character, which i had on my iPt4 and just put on my status bar in my iPad, here it is to copy and paste: •

  • Jonathan

    Awesome tweak, but I like to keep my Statusbar clean. 🙂 If you want ram stats, install Freeram7 from HackyouriPhone. Set an activator method, and you can see available ram, as well as free some up.

  • Isa Altintas

    SleepFX is updated for iOS 7 and FlatIcons will be updated sunday on macciti repo. FYI 🙂

  • Pavelbure

    Springtomize used to be able to show free ram, springtomize 3 does not, unless i am missing it somewhere.

    • gittlopctbi

      You are correct.

  • Bieberkinz

    1 word: Cloaky

  • Himanshu Oberoi

    Or You Can Buy Springtomize 3 With this and other features……

    • gittlopctbi

      Except Springtomize doesn’t put the date in the status bar. And it also doesn’t let you customize the date and time string in the status bar.

  • rockdude094

    Why can’t you just place this info into the control centre or notification centre ? Its just unnecessary to place it on the status bar especially it being so small.

  • Jailbreaker

    Can i disable 3G on iphone 5s?

  • Jamessmooth

    Is there an optimum amount of MB you want to stay within when operating your iPhone? Running a few tweaks, browsing on chrome I can’t get over 100MB ram. Help? 😀

    • LocalH

      Free RAM is wasted RAM. I just like to know how much RAM is free or curiousity’s sake. I regularly see less than 30MB free on my iPad Air and it doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

      • Jamessmooth

        Well, I guess I won’t worry about it too much then. Thanks again!

  • firerock

    Does anyone try it yet? How about battery life when you apply the second. Is it battery consuming or not noticeable? Thanks in advance!

    • Shingo

      displaying RAM and seconds could affect battery life….

  • Terence Ng

    Can it be shown in the Lock screen??

  • Victor

    How many times have you asked yourself “how can I add today’s date as well as free RAM info in my Status Bar?” If you’re anything like me, it would be about zero time. But let’s me honest, we aren’t all looking for the exact same things, and chances are you may be looking for such a tweak.
    Contains many errors please revise. Let’s me honest should be “be” and more sentence agreements on the first couple of sentences.

  • gittlopctbi

    I like it, but I don’t like that I have to have military 24 hour clock instead of 12 hour clock. Also, configuring the customized date format was quirky–when I tried to add a component, it would just add other string arguments which looks like the string that I had deleted before. Also, the link to “Date format instruction” did nothing.

  • EpicFacepalm

    Ah, no problem. That was my purpose when I created this account first, don’t take it personal 🙂

    • JomanJi

      ok 🙂

  • Mohsin

    Is it possible to get this wallpaper without the whole theme?

  • Tony Karam

    The only reason I am using this week is to hide AM/PM. So I am good 🙂
    Springtomize 3 does not offer that feature.

  • Sleetui

    Anyone know how I can only get the Free RAM in status bar without this tweak? B/c i used to use SBSettings for it but since its not compatible…

  • Johann Medina

    hey guys off topic: someone can tell me a tweak that kill the background apps? 🙂

    • Alberto Espinal


      • Johann Medina

        thank you bro!

      • Alberto Espinal


  • Cool

    There is a typo on the second sentence.

  • Doesn’t Cloaky do this too ?

  • Felipe Lopez

    Ok I need help. I jail broke my 5s and had a tweak where I was able to hide the battery level and show the percentage but the coolest part was it showed the lightning bolt to show it was charging with the battery missing. Anybody got Any idea. Already looked at statusmodifier and statustime+

  • Ethan Fong

    How do you get the time out of military time?

    • Zachary James

      use hh not HH

  • Big Poppa

    It’s no longer in Cydia
