    A few days ago, we gave you a look at the ColorY0urBoard jailbreak tweak by iOS developer MoonWolf that would allow you to colorize your iOS 7 keyboard to your liking. The tweak gave you a color picker, as well as a color lightness and darkness slider, and a color opacity slider. The color would then be applied to your keyboard.

    Unfortunately, this tweak came with a price tag of $1.99, which many people were skeptical of buying with all of the cheaper competition out there. If you want to save yourself the money, but still want to try out some of the features of this tweak, then the same developer has just released ColorY0urBoardFree in Cydia, which with some limited functionality, will also let you colorize your iOS 7 keyboard.

    The tweak will add an application icon to your Home Screen for adjusting your iOS 7 keyboard color:

    As you can see, you get the same color picker as before, and the same pre-defined colors at the bottom, but what's missing is the ability to change the lightness and darkness of the color you choose, and the ability to change the opacity of the color you choose.

    You can still enable or disable the tweak on demand from the "Turn off/Turn on" button at the top left, and you can still save your changes with the "Save" button at the top right.

    If you want to give ColorY0urBoardFree a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak requires iOS 7 to be installed.

    Weird, i've tried installing, removing, reinstalling numerous times but the said icon has never showed up, not even on spotlight search even though the coloryourboardfree mobile substrate was enabled.

    It seems that it doesn't work with iKeywi 2.
