One of the ways of finding out the current volume level of your device is to press the volume buttons on the side of your device. VolumeStatus 2 is a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows you to quickly determine the current volume level of your device directly from the Status Bar.

The tweak adds a volume indicator to the Status Bar that allows you to take a quick peek at the volume level without pressing the volume buttons. The tweak doesn’t display the exact volume level, but it gives you an idea of how much the volume is. The icon is followed by curved lines indicating the device’s volume level.

As you raise the volume, more lines will be added next to the icon up to a maximum of four lines while decreasing the volume reduces the number of curved lines.


After installing the tweak, you can enable or disable it from its preference panel in the stock Settings app. Along with the kill switch, you’ll also find an option that allows you to hide the volume HUD that appears on the center of the screen when you adjust the volume level.

That’s all the tweak offers and the developer has promised to release new features in the future. If you’re interested to give it a try, VolumeStatus 2 is now available on Cydia for free.

    • SkyFall

      They stopped doing that due to the lack of themes.

      • SkyFall

        Lack of good themes. Most themes out there are plain bad. And the good ones are hard to find.

      • Eni

        It doesent happen to me, if you are in ios 7.x you have to use statusHUD 2

      • RV

        yea they fixed it but i use BrightVol on activator, so when i try my vol buttons to adjust my brightness, nothing pops out in status or the normal hud.

  • blu

    wish it would let you adjust the volume from there too.
    I have a messed up volume down button.

      Use an activator gesture and you’ll be fine! 😉

      • blu

        I do (shake it or slide down on home screen), but being in the status bar would be even quicker. I had used the HUD tweak the let you adjust the volume from the HUD for a while.
