Disable double-height status bars with MonoBar

In the world of jailbreak tweaks, there are some that are really worth getting excited about. These would be tweaks like Dashboard X and Springtomize, that add significant functionality to iOS.

This, however, is not one of those tweaks. MonoBar is just a simple hack that disables the double-height status bar that appears when you’re recording a voice note, or in a phone call…

As you would expect with such a tweak, there are no settings to configure or icons to hide. Once you’ve installed MonoBar, it immediately takes effect, disabling double-height status bars as needed.

After testing it out several times, I can confirm that MonoBar works as advertised. Although I did find that it seems to disable the ability to tap the status bar to return to the call or recording, which is kind of a bummer.

You’re probably wondering why anyone would want something like this, but I don’t have the answer. I’m sure there are some folks out there that find double-height status bars annoying or ugly, that will find MonoBar useful.

If you’re interested in checking out the tweak, you can find it in the BigBoss repo, for free.
