  • [Review] Zeppelin - Add A Status Bar Logo to iOS

    Do you want to spice up your status bar?

    In the past there have been multiple tweaks that allow you to change the carrier text on your iPod touch, iPad, or iPhone from AT&T/Verizon/Sprint/iPod/iPad, to basically anything that you wanted. This is a very common customization option for jailbreakers that has been widely accepted. But today, we have stumbled upon a tweak that doesn't just change your carrier text, but it replaces it with a logo of your choice. The tweak has been dubbed Zeppelin by iOS developer jivhg.

    The settings for using it are really simple. When you install Zeppelin from Cydia and respring your iDevice, you will get a new panel in your Settings application that has three major sections. The first section is the part that lets you disable and enable the tweak at your own leisure so that you never have to uninstall it to get rid of its effects (which I think is wonderful, by the way). The second section holds all of the different icons that you can use in your status bar. The last section makes you respring your iDevice every time that you want to apply a different image to your status bar. The complete settings for Zeppelin are in the screenshots below:

    Aside from the countless icons that you can use to add personalization to your iDevice (there's at least one for everyone depending on what kind of fan you are), you will also see that upon entering the Settings application or any other application that turns the status bar gray instead of transparent black like it is on the home screen, that the icon actually takes the same gradient-filled color scheme as your signal bars would. I think that effect really makes it feel like it belongs there because it just fits in with the other colors in the status bar that are next to it (in this case, Wi-Fi). The entire list of icons is as follows:

    • Android
    • Aperture Science
    • Assassin's Creed
    • Batman
    • Beats by dre
    • Blue Cloud
    • Infiniti
    • Pac-Man
    • Space Invaders
    • Superman
    • Triforce

    Additionally, if you want more icons, you can head over to /Library/Zeppelin with any SSH client or with iFile and add in your own icons to use. I think that this range of customization is a really great idea and having the personal touch of icons in your status bar with the ease of tapping on a button and respringing is it an even better implementation than ever. My only problem with it? There's no icon in the Settings panel for it. The best part is that it's a free jailbreak tweak. What are your thoughts about Zeppelin?

      I have the app but the list of logo or whatever you call it is very limited and new logos should be added. Addition of transformers logo is a good start.

      Which logo shows up in the Zeppelin logo selection screen? I created a new logo and it's white so i can't see it in the logo selection options, blends too much with the background.
