Chameleon lets you colorize different aspects of iOS to your liking

If you’re looking to add an extra splash of color to your jailbroken handset, then you just might enjoy using a newly-released jailbreak tweak called Chameleon by iOS developer Sean Caissie.

At its heart, Chameleon is a full-fledged system colorization tweak for your iOS device. With it, you can colorize a plethora of different elements found in your handset’s operating system, including but not limited to:

Evident from the screenshot examples above, Chameleon is somewhat extensive and lets you colorize things such as backgrounds, headers, and text colors, among other things. Once installed, you’ll find a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app where you can configure the tweak to your liking:

Here, you can:

  • Toggle Chameleon on or off on demand
  • Configure Notification colors
  • Configure Today View colors
  • Configure 3D Touch colors
  • Configure Home Screen colors
  • Configure Dock colors

To give you a better idea of what you can configure from each section, we’ll outline everything for you below:

  • Enable or disable custom notification colors
  • Choose a content text color
  • Choose a title text color

  • Choose a stacked background color

According to the developer, Chameleon looks stunning with dark mode-centric tweaks such as Noctis and Eclipse. Obviously, using dark mode tweaks isn’t necessary, as you can still use Chameleon without them.

Those interested in trying Chameleon can download it for $1.99 from the Packix repository in Cydia or Sileo. Moreover, if you’ve purchased the Firefly tweak recently, then you’ll get Chameleon at a discounted rate.

Chameleon plays nicely with all jailbroken iOS 11 and 12 devices, so why not give it a shot?
