UI colorization runs in jailbreakers’ blood. It’s one of the most prominent ways to make a handset your own, differentiating it from the crowd of ordinarily-colored user interfaces, and now iOS developer ETHN is making this even easier with a free jailbreak tweak called AccentColor.
When you install AccentColor, you’re going to be able to tint various aspects of the iOS user interface to your liking. The tweak adds a dedicated preference pane to the settings app where users can toggle AccentColor on or off on demand and select all the different apps where it’ll take effect:
The tweak also adds a new option to the stock Display & Brightness preference pane in the Settings app where you can choose your preferred accent color:
The color your choose here applies to a swath of different interface elements that you’ll find while using your iPhone, including:
- Navigation Bar buttons
- Tab Bar buttons
- App Store Get buttons
- Adjustment knob bars
- And much more…
The colors are chosen via a color picker without pre-set colors, allowing you to choose virtually any primary color you want or any color in between.
A similar color tinting scheme is available on macOS machines, so the developer was trying to add some symmetry between platforms with this tweak.
If you’re ready to give the new AccentColor tweak a try, then you can download it for free from the Havoc repository via your favorite package manager app. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 and 14 devices.
