Want to upgrade the aesthetics of your otherwise bland jailbroken iPhone’s Status Bar? If you answered yes to that question, then we’ve got just the add-on for you.
Linear is a SnowBoard theme by Alpha_Stream that was made especially for your device’s Status Bar. It incorporates three different styles for your cellular and Wi-Fi signal strength indicators, along with the battery level indicator.
Right out of the box, users can visit the SnowBoard preference pane on their device to apply the theme to their cellular and Wi-Fi signal strength indicators, but applying the aesthetic to the battery level indicator will require you to have the Juice tweak installed as well.
Linear isn’t a new theme, but it did just recently make the switch from the Packix repository to the Chariz repository given how Packix is shutting down in place of the newer Havoc repository. Linear continues to be a free download via Chariz despite the move.
For those interested, Alpha_Stream has published a compatibility list for each of the three different Status Bar variants included with the Linear theme. While the devices vary a bit from one theme to the next, we will say that most iPhones ranging from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 12 Pro Max appear to be supported.
We would recommend and strongly encourage checking the compatibility list to ensure it will work with your device just for peace of mind.
If you plan to use the battery level indicator portion of the Linear theme, then you’ll need to acquire the Juice tweak from SparkDev’s personal repository by using the URL provided below:
We think that Linear gives the Status Bar a slick and modern aesthetic that the iPhone simply doesn’t come with out the box. Of course, one of the perks of jailbreaking is that we can change that however we see fit.
