Cydia Tweak: Cylinder Brings DIY Barrel Animations To Apple's iOS

March 31, 2014

Cylinder, the anticipated do-it-yourself Barrel-inspired jailbreak tweak that we told you about last month, is available to download on the Cydia Store in a new and updated version. You can pick up the package free of charge now, and it’s optimized for both iOS 7 and ARM64-devices.

Though Cylinder had been available to download previously, the package was in beta and listed on the developer’s own repository. However, as of the jailbreak tweak’s most recent update, it’s made the move to the BigBoss repository and the software has lost its “beta” tag, meaning it’s ready for the general public.

As a reminder, the smart package brings Barrel-like animations which users can code themselves to Apple’s mobile OS. We explained in our original article that the jailbreak tweak uses Lua, “a comparably simple coding language.”

Furthermore, Cylinder users don’t need to code animations using OS X, Xcode, or a compiler app; instead, you can code in a simple plain text app and copy your creation over to the jailbreak tweak itself.

The developer adds: all you have to do is drop your .lua scripts in /Library/Cylinder/ using scp/WinSCP/iFile/iFunBox/whatever. Then just open Settings, click the name, and boom. It’s loaded. You don’t have to respring, either."

If you “don’t do” code, a dedicated subreddit – r/cylinder – has been created, and here users are encouraged to share their favorite creations with the jailbreak community. Some popular animations for Cylinder are also making their way to the Cydia Store, too.

For those of you interested in iOS customization, a handful of additional packages can help jailbreakers out. Included in this selection are Springtomize 3, StatusBarSuite, BatteryStatusBar, and Dated.

Cylinder, on the other hand, can be downloaded now on the Cydia Store free of charge, and it’s optimized for both iOS 7 and ARM64-devices.
