If you’re like me, constantly jumping from theme to theme on your iPhone because you get bored easily, this one’s for you.
Here’s a very quick and simple method that allows you to change the custom ‘white’ app names under all of your your homescreen icons/folders (Phone, Mail, Messages, etc…) to pretty much any color you want!
Tested on iPhone 4, but it should work on all jailbroken iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch’s.
All you need is Winterboard (obviously) and iFile, a really useful and must-have app. It’s a few bucks in Cydia (with trial), and is good for anyone who jailbreaks their device.
1 – Open iFile and navigate to /var/stash/Themes/No Undocked Icon Labels
2 – Open Info.plist
3 – Change ‘transparent’ to any color (red, green, yellow, pink…)
4 – Save and exit
5 – Open Winterboard and make sure No Undocked Icon Labels is checked
6 – Respring and you’re ready to go. All app names are now in the color you wanted!
You can also do it by SSH’ing via WinSCP/Cyberduck or DiskAid and modifying the same Info.plist.
