We have already discovered iOS 6 to have a versatile status bar that changes colors to match the surrounding UI (user interface). Unfortunately, if youíre jailbroken on iOS 5 like most people here are, then you are stuck between the boring black and gray status bars. If you donít want to be, then a new jailbreak tweak called StatusTint by iOS developer Rudolf Lichtner will give you the ability to change your status barís colors.
The tweak is enabled or disabled right from the Settings application in the StatusTint preferences pane. You can also choose between having a gradient status bar, which means two colors (shown above), and using one solid color for your status bar. For whichever you choose to have, you will find two RGB sliders in the preferences pane to select your colors. The preferences pane is shown below:
Having the RGB sliders gives you a very broad range of possible color selections, unfortunately it also means having to guess what color you are choosing since they offer no indication of what color you are currently sitting on. It is also recommended that you respring the device after you make a change to the settings so that they will take effect.
The issue with the landscape status bar not appearing correctly has been resolved in another release of SatatusTint from Rudolf's private repository. It will be updated in the ModMyi repository shortly with the same update.
If you are interested in trying the tweak before it goes live on any public repositories, you can add Rudolf's repository and download the tweak for free to give it a try. His repository is shown below:
