How to Change the Look of Messages on iOS 8 iPhone [Jailbreak Tweak]

Anyone who wishes to change the look of Message on iPhone with iOS 8 version installed on it can use the jailbreak tweak from Cydia store. This tool is currently in beta stage but you can still give it a chance and customize your Apple smartphone. Remember that you have to be jailbroken to use the tweak which is possible for iOS 8.1.2 but impossible for iOS 8.1.3 update which is the most recent official public release of the ‘fruit’ platform.

The new iOS 8 Messages customize feature was developed by Charlie Hewitt. He called his app Messages Customiser which makes it clear what the program supports and offers.

How to Change the Appearance of Messages on iPhone

Step 1. You have to add a new Cydia source before you can download the tweak. The source is http://chewitt.me/repo/ - download Messages Customiser and install it.

Step 2. Launch Settings where you will find a new preference pane with the toggle that turns on / off your new program.

Step 3. Enable the tool.

Step 4. You will also find new options in the pane where it is possible to apply gradient or colors to your message bubbles, SMS or iMessage. How can you choose the color? The tweak offers either RGB sliders or a list of predefined colors.

Step 5. Do what you want. Customize your Messages background color, text color, tint color etc.

Step 6. When you wish to revert back all the changes you made and wish to return to your default settings colors you just have to click on Reset option which is included in the iOS 8 tweak.

The changes are applied automatically without having to respring your iPhone, but you have to close Messages and launch this app again to see the new colors.
