Status Color Hero

Jailbreaking is all about customizing your iPhone in a way that you see fit; from the biggest detail all the way down to the smallest detail. With that in mind, Status Color is a recently released tweak that’s worth a look.

Status Color is a tweak that allows you to adjust the color of your status bar in real time using simple RGB sliders. The tweak, which is available for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, allows you to easily match the color of the status bar with wallpaper or other Home screen elements. Check out our video walkthrough inside to see what I mean.

Once the tweak is installed on your device, you’ll need to venture into the stock Settings app where you’ll find a dedicated preference panel for Status Color. As stated, the RGB adjustments happen in real time, so no resprings or anything of the sort are required. Simply adjust the sliders, and watch the status bar change color on the fly.

No, Status Color isn’t the most adventurous or feature filled tweak, but it serves a need, and in that regard it does a commendable job. Again, if you’re interested in giving it a whirl, you can find it free of charge on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.
