Accent Custom provides jailbreakers with boundless UI color-tinting options

At the end of 2019, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called Accent that could have been used to tint various facets of the iOS or iPadOS user interface.

It provided users with a pre-defined list of colors that users could pick from to accomplish this, and while the tweak worked fabulously, the list of colors was somewhat constrained. That’s why this new release is particularly exciting.

iOS developer lillieweeb has just released a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Accent Custom that, much like the original tweak, enables color-based tinting to the iOS or iPadOS user interface. The differentiator, however, is that users may choose any color they want via a color picker.

Infinite possibilities indeed!

As you’ll see for yourself in the screenshot examples above, Accent Custom applies it’s tinting effects to an array of different interface elements, including but not limited to:

  • The Status Bar battery level indicator fill
  • The scroll bar
  • The text cursor
  • Navigation bar buttons
  • Tab bar buttons
  • And much more…

Once installed, Accent Custom doesn’t add any preference panes to the Settings app like the original tweak did, but rather adds a dedicated app icon to the Home Screen from which users may configure the tweak to their liking:

Here, users can toggle the tweak on or off on demand and choose the color they wish to use for interface tinting. Thanks to the use of a color picker as opposed to a pre-defined list of colors, users have a lot more color options to choose from and can get in between those colors provided by the original tweak.

A Respring is recommended after making changes.
