Change Transparency Of iPhone Icons [Jailbreak Needed]

In the list of cool Cydia tweaks, our next addition is called as Alphacon. Alphacon is a fairly good tweak, available for free on the Cydia store which lets you change the transparency level of icons on your apple device.

To download the app, open Cydia, go to search and type in ALPHACON. Once you are done with the download part, you can look for the app’s setting in the stock iPhone settings.


Open the same and you will see a slider at the top with the tile Alpha Value along with four toggle buttons for Home Screen, Folders, Switcher and Dock. Below these you also have a toggle button corresponding to Hide Labels.


Once you have enabled the app you can enable/disable the above mentioned features. Now the slider is used for changing the transparency level of icons.With the slider ball being at the extreme left the icons will be barely visible whereas on the extreme right the transparency level will be null. Interestingly you can opt between the Home Screen, folders, switcher and dock icons. Whichever you enable, the transparency will be changed for the same. The app also lets you hide the icon labels.


Look at the image above where i have disabled the dock icon transparency and enabled the same for home screen, folders and switcher icons. Also the transparency level is set at nearly 50 %.

Now after making the changes you can exit the app and you will see the changes as depicted in the image below.


In the image below i have changed the transparency level next to least and the icons have become transparent.


App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Conclusion: Nice tweak and works pretty well. Does not affect the device’s performance.
