Eclipse by iOS developer Guillermo Morán (fr0st) was perhaps the most conspicuous dark mode jailbreak tweak ever conceived for the iOS platform, and those who’ve just jailbroken iOS 12 with Pwn20wnd’s unc0ver tool should be pleased to hear that Eclipse Dark Mode (iOS 12) is now available for download.
Just like its predecessor, Eclipse Dark Mode (iOS 12) continues its longstanding legacy by bringing a full-fledged dark mode experience to pwned iPhones and iPads alike. Users can ultimately choose between an OLED-friendly pitch-black UI experience, or they can toggle custom theme presets, which offer a variety of other color schemes.
Upon installing Eclipse Dark Mode (iOS 12), you’ll find a preference pane in the Settings app:
Here, you can:
- Toggle Eclipse on or off on demand
- Configure which applications the tweak will impact
- Disable the tweak on SpringBoard
- Enable lighter table cells for visibility purposes
- Hide or show cell separators
- Configure color options
- Adjust miscellaneous options
Delving deeper, you’ll find that Eclipse Dark Mode (iOS 12) provides the following fine-grained controls:
Here, you can:
- Colorize your iPhone or iPad’s keyboard
- Colorize various loading screens
- Tint SMS and iMessage bubbles
- Enable web-centric dark mode for web pages
- Colorize the Status Bar and Dock
- Colorize cell detail text
- Select from various theme presets
- Choose a custom color scheme if the presets aren’t to your liking
The developer includes a Reload SpringBoard button in the primary preference pane that you should use any time you make changes to the preference pane. This ensures your new settings take effect and that you get the full experience of your custom dark mode options.
In case you were wondering, Eclipse Dark Mode (iOS 12) plays nicely with the recently-released Noctis12 tweak, so if you’re looking for a system-wide dark mode experience, then you should consider pairing the two tweaks together on your iOS 12 handset.
Eclipse Dark Mode (iOS 12) is available to download for $1.00 from Cydia’s Packix repository for a limited time, and the price will only go up as the developer introduces more features, so act fast. This version of the tweak is only certified to work on jailbroken iOS 12 devices. Those using an earlier version of iOS should use one of the tweak’s predecessors instead.
