    Want to customize the Volume HUD's color, screen position, size, corner radius, or almost anything else? Then check out a new jailbreak tweak called HUD Customizer by iOS developer merdok.

    With this tweak, you can change the volume HUD so that it fits your personality. Shown above are some examples. You can adjust the color of the volume indicator bars, change the corner radius, and change the size of the volume HUD. Below are some more examples, including changing the color of the volume HUD altogether, or changing the screen position of the volume HUD:

    HUD Customizer adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure your volume HUD to your liking:

    Here, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, as well as go through all of the different cells for configuring options.

    We'll go in order and first take a look at the Appearance cell:

    From here, you will be able to adjust the size of the volume HUD, the opacity, the time that the HUD displays on your screen before disappearing, the corner radius level, the border around the volume HUD, and the border color that goes around the volume HUD. All of these settings are set with sliders, but if you want to choose a pre-set color for the border, then there are plenty of pre-set colors to pick from.

    Next up, is the Content cell:

    From here, you can set a custom title for your volume HUD, choose a custom subtitle, and hide or show the image on the volume HUD.

    Below the Content cell is the Position cell:

    From here, you can customize where on the display that the volume HUD will be positioned. You can use the X and Y sliders to manually choose a position, or you can pick from any of the pre-sets, which are pretty straightforward.

    Under that, you'll find the Background Color cell:

    From here, you can choose a custom color for the background of the volume HUD either by way of RGB sliders, or by way of pre-set color lists. You can also adjust the color of the media background. You can make the volume HUD color match the color of the progress blocks if you want to.

    Below the Background Color cell, you will find a Progress Block Color cell:

    From here, you can configure colors for levels 1, 2, and 3 of the volume level indicator bars. Each level has to do with how high or how low the volume level is. Each section has an RGB slider so you can set the color to your liking, or you can use a pre-set color to make your life easier.

    The final cell is the Animation cell:

    Here, you can configure the show and hide animations for the volume HUD, in addition to a rotation animation. There are many animations to choose from, and you can adjust them to your liking.

    There are obviously a ton of features packed into this tweak, and if you were looking for the ultimate all-in-one volume HUD customization jailbreak tweak, then this is certainly it. If you want to give HUD Customizer a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for just $1.49.
