What is Macaron?

Macaron is a lightweight jailbreak tweak by straight_tamago and sugiuta that enables you to change the Dock background images on your jailbroken device. You can use this tweak to display a photo as the background of your Dock. The tweak was released for rootful and rootless jailbreaks and was tested with Palera1n only. It supports iOS 15.0 – iOS 16.5.

Once installed, the Macaron tweak seamlessly integrates with your device by adding a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app. From this convenient location, you have the power to enable the tweak and customize its myriad of available options.

Moreover, Macaron goes beyond simple image customization by offering a diverse range of blur options, including adaptive, dark, and light with adjustable opacity. These additional features elevate your visual experience, ensuring every glance at your Dock is a delightful one.

Macaron tweak was proven to work with rootful and rootless Palera1n jailbreak running iOS 15 and iOS 16 on iPhones and iPads. However, the tweak should also support rootless Dopamine jailbreak on iOS 15 – iOS 15.4.1.
