Thread: 'Bloard' Enables the Black Keyboard in iOS 7 for All Interfaces, All the Time

    Default 'Bloard' Enables the Black Keyboard in iOS 7 for All Interfaces, All the Time


    Depending on the interface that you have open in iOS 7, your keyboard might be white, or it might be black. Most of the time, your keyboard is white, but the black keyboard is just so much sexier. With that being said, why not enable it everywhere?

    That's exactly what a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Bloard by iOS development team GN-OS does. With this tweak installed, you'll get the black iOS 7 keyboard in every typing interface, rather than the white iOS 7 keyboard.

    For some, the black keyboard is easier on the eyes than the white one, so this might be a useful tweak for those that are hard at seeing. It's especially easier on the eyes in the dark.

    If at any time you want to go back to the white keyboard temporarily, all you need to do is visit the tweak's preferences pane in the Settings application and disable the tweak via the killswitch:



    To grab Bloard, you can head over to Cydia's BigBoss repository right now.

    Name: Bloard
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.0.1-11
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4
    Repo: BigBoss

    This tweak is amazing. I've been using it all day now. But, as I said in the previous post, we need tweaks like this to move the community to new tweaks to change design. We need a new DreamBoard like tweak to move past the days of WinterBoard.

    Stoked cuz I like my phones overall theme to be darker... Had a black keyboard before color keyboard came out years ago... Was waiting for color keyboard and now this came along... Only a matter of days I would think before our keyboards are color customizable again... Seems like some devs can just rework this tweak for color mods...

    While this mod is exactly what I wanted. With Fancy coming soon I'll just stick with that (when released). Using this as interim, very nice.

    If you go to settings/general/accessibility and enable increase contrast the keyboard turns black instead of grey

    Which font are you using on that screenshot Answer1o1?

    I can't find this on Cydia. Did a search and looked on Big Boss repository. Was it pulled?

    Go to settings - general - accessibility - accessibility shortcut. Then assign the triple click to invert colors. This is a far better solution. Adding a black keyboard yet still having a giant white text box is NOT easier on the eyes, rather it's harder on the eyes. Inverting all colors as needed with this triple click makes the keyboard AND the text box dark and can be done and undone on the fly. Try it!
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    It would be nice to have the option to change the background in this tweak!
