Adding & Configuring QuartzSettings to Your Phone

Similar to other jailbreak tweaks, QuartzSettings is available through the BigBoss repo on Cydia. The jailbreak tweak is also available for free, so go ahead and have QuartzSettings installed on your jailbroken iOS devices. The installation process is very straightforward and you can get QuartzSettings up and running in just a few seconds.

Once QuartzSettings is installed, you can access its configuration menu through the stock Settings app. There are three main buttons available: Enable (or Disable), Themes and Preview. These buttons are self-explanatory and you should have no trouble at all navigating through them.

The Options

You can quickly access Themes to see the looks that are available. At the moment, QuartzSettings includes three main themes: Black Panther, Panda and SkyView. You can preview each theme directly from the Settings window and see the colours and designs each of them offers.

Once you are happy with the theme of your choice, simply tap Enable to enable the theme. Your Settings app will not look different. If you don’t want to enable themes, enabling QuartzSettings will give the Settings app a nice wallpaper tint, which makes the whole interface look good already.

Endless Possibilities

The good news is, QuartzSettings is designed to work with custom themes. It wouldn’t be long before developers and designers start making custom themes for this jailbreak tweak. In fact, some of them are already saying that they will. The possibilities are endless indeed. The level of customizations that QuartzSettings enables allow users to fully customize the way the stock Settings app look.
