Blackout changes your status bar to black, looks great with Zephyr

Blackout is a simple tweak that replaces the stock silver status bar with a solid black background. It’s a change that’s purely aesthetic, and it features no options or settings to configure.

Developer, Adam bell, suggests that Blackout looks best when paired with chpwn’s Zephyr tweak, and I have to concur. The black status bar blend seamlessly when switching between apps using Zephyr’s multitouch gestures. Take a look inside for our full video walkthrough of Blackout.


Blackout is a free jailbreak tweak that can be downloaded from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. As stated, there’s not much to it besides the fact that it changes your status bar to black, hence there are no preferences to configure.
