    Default Disable iOS 6 Tinted Status Bars With 'AntiTint'


    iOS 6 brought tinted status bars that match the surrounding colors of the application and some people are not so sure if they like it that much. For those of you that arenít sold on that new feature, iOS hacker and developer Ryan Petrich has released a new free jailbreak tweak called AntiTint. As shown above, the tweak will disable the tinted status bar and just make it black everywhere that it would usually change colors.

    AntiTint will not affect the Status Bar on the home screen, which remains a transparent object that you can see your wallpaper through.

    AntiTint doesnít come with any options to configure. Itís simply one of those barebones tweaks that are intended to do one thing and if you like it, then you install it and if you donít like it, then you donít install it. To disable the tweak, you will have to uninstall it from the device that you install it on.

    Currently, the iOS 6 jailbreak is tethered and only supports devices with the limera1n exploit. The current version of redsn0w also will not install Cydia on your iOS 6 device. If you want to install the tweak via SSH (redsn0w installs an SSH tool on iOS 6 for you), then you can open a terminal window in your favorite SSH client such as WinSCP and run the following script:

    PHP Code:
    apt-get install com.rpetrich.antitint 
    Name: AntiTint
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 6
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Ryan Petrich
    Editor's Rating:  4/5

    It's not that the iOS 6 status bars look bad, but they don't offer a lot of contrast when they are certain colors. This makes it sometimes difficult to read the information for people with not-so-great eyesight.

    Ryan is really awesome!

    Although I like the new status bar colours and why is there no colour in Safari?!? It looks awkward with the black bar only. Also I saw the iPhone 5 today and WOW, it's sooo nice, really envious of people who have that beauty.

    The tinted status bar was done to make the i5 screen look taller.

    Guys I am a personal fan of Ryan petrich but don't praise him for these few tweaks which are very simple. They are useful as to the fact they give iOS 6 customization but I would rather people praise/remember him for his complex and very interface changing tweaks

    While all this is great. Without the untethered jailbrake it's pointless.

    For some. A tethered jailbreak works just as well.
