    Default 'NoGrayContrast' Removes the Bland Gray Effect From the Reduce Transparency Feature


    iOS 7.1.x's reduce transparency feature can be used to help make things easier to see when you're not as good at seeing similar colors as other people are. iOS 7.1.x comes with a very thorough feature ultimately replaces the blurred transparency with gray colored elements instead in order to make elements easier to see. It can also improve battery performance.

    We just recently showed you a free jailbreak tweak called Contrast70 by iOS developer PoomSmart that brought this feature to iOS 7.0.x, but today, we will be showing you a new free jailbreak tweak called NoGrayContrast by the same developer, which does the opposite – brings the iOS 7.0.x reduced transparency to iOS 7.1.x so it doesn't look gray.

    With the tweak installed on an iOX 7.1.x device, when you enable the reduce transparency feature, it will go ahead and reduce the transparency, but instead of graying everything out, it will leave the color effects like it would on an iOS 7.0.x device. You can see the difference in the two screenshots above.

    Since you're bringing back color instead of the gray effect, it may look better, but it can also eat into your battery performance, so this is something to keep in mind.

    There are no options to configure for NoGrayContrast. Once you install it, you'll notice the different effects of the reduce transparency option immediately. NoGrayContrast is an open source jailbreak tweak, so if you're interested in seeing how it works, you can visit GitHub at this link. If you want to try NoGrayContrast, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 7.1.x is required for the installation.
