Just a couple of days ago, we showed you a snazzy new jailbreak tweak called Color My Scrolls that could be used to colorize your iOS device’s scrollbars. We liked the concept because it was a simple way to add personality to your device, but at the same time, it came with a price tag and was somewhat limited in terms of features.
Given the aforementioned circumstances, we’re excited to showcase a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called ColoredScrollIndicator by iOS developer LacertosusDeus. In case the context clues haven’t given it away already, this tweak is effectively a free alternative to Color My Scrolls that offers a lot more by way of customization. For that reason alone, we think it might be worth checking out.
As shown in the screenshot examples above, ColoredScrollIndicator does a lot more than just permit solid color selections. In fact, users can configure color gradients that span from the top to bottom of the scrollbar. If that wasn’t enticing enough, it should be noted that users can even arrange a border color if they so choose.
After installing ColoredScrollIndicator, users will find a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app where they can configure the tweak however they want:
Here, you can:
- Configure the first color for your gradient
- Configure the second color for your gradient
- Adjust the gradient alpha level
- Adjust the gradient corner radius
- Flip the gradient one way or another (top to bottom or vice-versa)
- Adjust the border width
- Configure a border color
The developer provides an Apply button at the top-right of the preference pane to save any changes you make.
Not into gradients? No problem – just set the same colors for Color One and Color Two and you’ll have a solid color throughout. Don’t like borders? Also not a problem – just set the Border Width to its thinnest level and it won’t even show up. Snazzy, amirite?
Those interested in trying ColoredScrollIndicator can download the tweak for free from the Twickd repository or the Packix repository via their preferred package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices and provides just the right level of customization to give your handset a personal touch.
