BootScreenCustomization tweak lets you colorize your iPhone boot screen for free

Each and every time you turn your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad on, you get the boot up screen, which shows a mono-colored background and an Apple logo in the center with an opposing color.

Depending on whether your device has a black or white bezel, the colors of the boot up screen differ from the factory, but with jailbreaking, you can actually take control of the colors and configure them your own way.

BootScreenCustomization is a new jailbreak tweak that will let you do this, and we’ll show you how the tweak works in this review.

The boot screen… boring as always, until now

Whether you have a black background with a white Apple logo, or a white background with a black Apple logo, the default iOS boot up screen colors are plain Jane, and Apple doesn’t give you any way to configure them how you’d like.

BootScreenCustomization gives you a whole palette of colors to pick from, allowing you to customize the boot up screen color scheme to be what you want it to be.

The tweak works very similarly to a tweak shown off last year called BootLogoCustomizer, but unlike that tweak, which was $1.00 in Cydia, BootScreenCustomization is free, which means it has the potential to get to a whole lot more jailbreakers.

Configuring BootScreenCustomizer

Just like the other tweak, BootScreenCustomizer adds a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can configure the color for the background and the Apple logo independently of one another.

Here, you will toggle the tweak on or off on demand, select your color scheme, and then tap on the Apply button to save your settings. This will respring your device.

To add some style to your iOS device without paying a cent, BootScreenCustomization is a great way for those with shallow pockets to colorize their boot up screen on their jailbroken devices.

The developer of the tweak has even opted to make the tweak open source, so those who like tinkering can check out the tweak’s source code on GitHub.
