For some jailbreakers, theming and system colorization are two of the most exciting aspects of having a pwned handset at their disposal. Fairly regularly, jailbreak tweak developers release some kind of add-on that allows users to colorize their handset’s aesthetics — some made specifically for certain interfaces, and others made to work system-wide.

A new jailbreak tweak release dubbed Colorful by iOS developer Dylan West (iOSthemem0d) is one of the latter, and it comes with so many options for tweaking your iPhone’s color scheme that you can captivate the interest of your peers regardless of what interface you might be looking at on your handset.

As depicted in the screenshot examples above, Colorful is a powerful system colorization tweak for iOS 13 that lets you add a splash of color to a number of interfaces. As you might come to expect, the tweak adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app after installation with a long list of options to configure:

In the primary preference pane, users can:

  • Toggle Colorful on or off on demand
  • Customize color options
  • Apply changes
  • Reset options to their defaults

Upon tapping on the Customize color options cell, users will find dedicated sections for each individual element of iOS:

Here, you can choose between light or dark mode support and customize color options for the following interface elements:

  • Calculator
  • Camera
  • Lock Screen
  • Navigation Bar
  • Phone
  • SpringBoard
  • System Color
  • System-Wide
  • Status Bar
