How to enable Instagram Dark Mode (Cydia Hack)

In this tutorial will show you how to enable Instagram Dark Mode theme on your jailbroken iOS Iphone. Before we proceed, make sure your iPhone is jailbroken with Cydia or Sileo. After we would need to add a new repository on the list Repos. Let’s Begin.

  • Open Sileo or Cydia
  • Add “repo.packix.com” (without the ” “) to your list of “Sources” in either app

After the repo has been installed.

  • Open either Cydia or Sileo
  • Type in the “Search” box “Tincture
  • Hit “Install” (Cydia) or “Get” (Sileo) on the following page to proceed.
  • After either select “Confirm” (Cydia) or swipe up from the bottom of the “Queue” card and tap “Confirm” next to it (Sileo)

Tincture tweak isn’t enabled by default, in this case you’ll have to go on the iPhone Settings app, Tap on the “Enable” toggle along the top to turn the feature on. By doing this there isn’t any need to Respring your iphone, which it saves us more time.

After that we are good to go! There are numerous UI elements within Instagram that you can colorize with Tincture, in fact this is the list of the elements you can customize:

  • message bubble background color for Instagram Direct
  • message bubble border color for Instagram Direct
  • active dot color for Instagram Direct
  • active text color for Instagram Direct
  • camera color for Instagram Direct
  • link/username color
  • dividers color
  • navigation tint color
  • heart color
  • bookmark color
  • feed icon color

In order to customize, tap on a UI element you want to apply a new color to, and on the following page, either adjust the toggles along the bottom until you achieve your desired hue or tap on a specific tone from the provided color palette.

Now you can customzie your instagram at your like. We transform it with a dark mode theme type of and it looks really cool! Fortunately this tweak will work perfectly in conjunction with IGDarkMode, so that the customized UI elements stand out a lot more.
