Looking for an efficient way to customize the look and feel of your jailbroken iPhone or iPad without breaking the bank? If so, then you might be excited about a new free jailbreak tweak called Stylish by iOS developer i0s_tweak3r.

With this tweak, you’ll get an opportunity to transform user interface elements across iOS, as shown in the screenshot illustrations above.

Stylish doesn’t have as diverse of configuration options as a paid jailbreak tweak like Springtomize does, but one should expect as much when a tweak is free. All of Stylish’s options are available from the tweak’s preference pane in the Settings app, which you’ll find post-installation:

Here, you can configure any of the following settings:

  • Toggle use of sliders throughout iOS
  • Randomize the screenshot flash color
  • Disable the screenshot flash
  • Adjust the height of the application Dock
  • Customize the Dock’s opacity level
  • Add highlighting effects to application icons and their labels
  • Configure an opacity level for highlights
  • Make highlights more colorful
  • Change application icon labels from white to black
  • Colorize application icon labels randomly
  • Hide application icon badge notifications
  • Remove Home Screen dots
  • Apply randomized colorization to the Home screen page dots
  • Augment the colors of your Lock screen
  • Invert white Lock screen text so that it appears black instead
  • Randomize text colors everywhere on your iOS device
  • Change most text in iOS to black
  • Randomize Control Center button colors
  • Make the number of buttons you can have in Control Center unlimited
  • Hide all AirPlay-related stuff from the Control Center interface
  • Hide Night Shift option from Control Center

As you can see, there’s no deficit of configuration possibilities. The developer seems to have gone above and beyond the call of duty to cram a whole truckload of features into tweak, making it desirable for heavy iOS-modders who want an entirely distinct look for their device(s).

A respring button can be found at the bottom of the preference pane, which lets you save your settings after making adjustments.

Given how much Stylish can offer, it’s easy for me to recommend this tweak to jailbreakers that are looking for system-wide customization. If you want to give Stylish a try, it’s a free download from Cydia’s BigBoss repository and works on all jailbroken iOS 9 and 10 devices.

What are your thoughts about the extensive feature set offered by Stylish? Share in the comments section below.

    just my opinion, been on 11.1 for a bit now and for the first time, I’m not in a hurry for a JB. Everything just works.

    • mersc

      Always got a chuckle out of commenters saying no jailbreak needed etc who are actively reading and commenring on JB articles.

      iOS11 fixed less than 10% of the fixes I use. Until iOS is is fully customizable and comes with Activator there will always be a need for a jailbreak. And no, the control center faux customization is not true customization.

      If no JBs are released then I’ll switch to the freedom of the green side.

      Jb iOS > Rooted Android > Stock Android > Stock iOS (most restrictive)

        Idk.. maybe because I’m a loyal follower to IDB I commented? Like I point out first “in my opinion”. I can comment to whatever I article I like.. not a restricted in here I presume..?

  • Alejandro Delgado

    lmao who would want to do this? It looks terrible.

    • Who would want to do “what” exactly? There are many toggle switches for all of the options. You see an example of virtually every option turned on at the same time in our post. Obviously, your mileage will vary depending on what options you actually turn on. You could create a cool effect if you tinkered with it.

    • Danelson239

      Then don’t download it. It’s an awesome plethora of options to change options on your iphone and customize to your liking.

      • Alejandro Delgado

        I haven’t used jailbreak since probably iOS8 so, no chance i’m downloading this anytime soon.

    Hey, thanks for the nice review. ☺️
    I’ve been a follower of this blog for a while- you’re always one of the first to review new tweaks, and usually hit the nail on the head.

    Just to clarify one thing though, the “Enable sliders” button is to allow the sliders from Stylish’s settings to work; it’s not for all sliders system wide.

    The idea was to make it easy to turn off the tweak’s features involving the sliders, without having to remember where each was before you adjusted it. For instance, if you like how it’s set up, but you wanted to test a new tweak, you can just turn off all switches and Stylish will be disabled when you install the new one. When you want Stylish back, as soon as the “Enable sliders” switch is on, each slider will be set just as you had it. Then just turn on any other switches you like, and possibly respring.

    However, many features can be adjusted or turned on or off without having to respring, and they take affect quickly after the settings change. (The icon text & highlights that are in the dock stay the same color, but you can remove them from dock, then put them back and they’ll reflect the settings change.)

    It’s also a neat trick to change a highlight or text color without respringing- by moving an app inside a folder or dock, and then back out. Or by purposely changing some settings without respringing, the dock apps will have a distinct style difference from the rest of the home screen.

    Again, thx for the nice review. I think you’ll be happy with the next update; I plan on adding color-picker wheel’s soon for further customization. Until next time…. thx and keep up the good work. ??
