Resized Circular Battery

I’ve been a big fan of Alkaline—the jailbreak tweak that allows you to theme the battery indicator—since it was first released. Not only does it comes bundled with a couple of great looking battery themes, but it has also lead to the contribution of various other themes from members of the jailbreak community.

The latest Alkaline theme to hit Cydia is called Circular Battery, and as its name suggests, it provides users with a circular battery indicator. If you’re looking for an easy and subtle way to change up the look of your iPhone’s status bar, then this is it. Check out our video for Circular Battery after the break.

Once you install Circular Battery, you’ll need to venture into the Alkaline preference panel located in the stock Settings app. There, you’ll find a section for themes where you can select Circular Battery. Once Circular Battery is selected, you will need to respring to make the theme take effect.

Resized Circular Battery Alkaline

One of the best thing about Circular Battery is that it uses Alkaline, which means you don’t have to install WinterBoard to reap the benefits of this theme. Of course, since this theme relies on the Alkaline jailbreak tweak, it will be installed along with the theme if you don’t already have it running on your device.

Circular Battery is a free jailbreak theme and is available right no on Cydia’s MacCiti repo. Let me know what you think about it in the comments section below.

    Oh Jeff! Glad to see you back posting again, looking forward to yet another video.
    Also, if you actually happen to read this comment, I have to say, that your channel is the first one I go to for any jailbreak news on Youtube! And of course, IDB is the ONLY place I go to, to get any Apple news!
    Keep up this AMAZING work you all are doing here, have an AWESOME week!
    This is me, and I love Idownloadblog (in Jeff’s voice in the end of every Youtube video haha)

    i want a tweak that gives me counter when the battery is on 1% and tells me exactly when it will shut down

    • Tyler

      Yeah that’d be sweet

    • Framboogle

      Battery life kind of does that

      • Osama Muhammed

        Ye i mean, like 30 seconds countdown on status bar before phone shutdown

  • My favourite is Live Battery Indicator 🙂

  • Tyler

    Habesha is my favorite.

  • jonny12168

    whats the repo?? I deleted by mistake a while back /.

    • Chris

      It should just appear through the BigBoss repo

  • wy choong

    why are these battery themes get video review but tweaks like Guest Mode only reviewed in words and pictures.
    isn’t themes are self-explanatory by looking at the screenshots while functional tweaks deserve a video for better explanation?

    i’m not blaming or complaining, just curious

    • Kevin Osborne

      LoL this is a good point… 😛

  • Nice, nice, but cmon devs, somethiing useful, like better notes with font control and better editing, or nc clocks, Im seeing crazy tweaks for users with “Trichotillomania” (Hands On). Doubtless there are genius developers out there who are hopefully hard at work

  • Faruk

    it bugs when i try it when my iPhone 4s is charging? very annoying

  • Shrey Gupta

    A bit of editing required in the second last line. Its written as “available right no on Cydia’s MacCiti”, please change it to “available right now on Cydia’s MacCiti”.

    I love it, apple should have done this, it fits in with the whole circles design very nicely

  • DopamineAddicted

  • SyahrulHelmy
