vColor 02

The volume HUD has always held a weird place in the hearts of jailbreakers. It’s been used to launch apps, it’s been customized, it’s been given music features. Now, it’s being colored, again.

vColor is the latest volume HUD-based jailbreak tweak that allows you to change up its look. It lets you alter the background, depletion bar, volume number, and volume meter colors. vColor is from developer Javier Brito, and it’s available for free right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Check inside as we step through vColor’s functions on video.

vColor features over a dozen canned colors that can be assigned to each of the HUD aspects mentioned above. The colors included are as follows:

  • Black
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Magenta
  • Purple
  • Brown
  • White
  • Orange
  • Cyan
  • Teal
  • Gold
  • Chartreuse

I have to say, the tweak might not be that impressive, but you have to be impressed by the developer’s use of color Chartreuse. I don’t know about you, but that’s totally a first for me.

vColor Settings

Via the tweak’s settings, you can combine or mix and match all of the included colors on the way to creating some pretty wild looking volume HUDs. The great thing about vColor is that the results of your color changes are instantly reflected, meaning no resprings are required in order to enact your changes.

    Good tweak but I’ve always liked the random setting on tweaks, thus making them not so boring.

  • Ariel

    Vertex beta. Simple, but brilliant.

    still no clear? really?!?! I just want it out of the way (yes I know about the tweak to move it to the status bar)

    • Regulator

      Transparent clear is what I use. You set the level of how clear it is but no colors.

      • Naman Jain

        Just use StatusHUD

  • Regulator

    Anybody know a tweak to make the video player bars completely transparent? Thanks

  • Apple should have stayed with the transparent volume controls. It blocks some parts of videos when changing volume. If it ain’t broke don ‘t fix it.

    I can’t seem to find this in Cydia at all. I typed in vcolor and nothing came up. What else do I need to look under to find this?
