Prior to 8.4 I used MuteIcon to show an icon in the status bar when I switched the phone to Vibrate. MuteIcon doesn't appear to be working in 8.4... are there any other tweaks that do this?

Well, I have Open Notifier already for other icons, but I do have MuteIcon installed as well (I'm on 8.1.2).

OpenNotifier is useful for a lot of other things as well.
May I ask what status bar icons you have open notifier for?

Mainly for Messages, Email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Reminders, Cydia and the App store. I've set icons so that if there are notifications they show in my statusbar.

Does this work for iOS 8? I installed it and all I get is this.

You'll need a custom libstatus bar for 8.4 to get opennotifier to work, you can get it from this repo:
elijahandandrew.com/repo/

mute-icon does not install without the original libstatus bar, i made a custom version which install's without the dependency.
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/22242102/muteicon_1.4.1.1-2.deb

However it will constantly give an update available in Cydia
for that you can edit /var/lib/dpkg/status

close Cydia
Use iFile or other file browser to go to /var/lib/dpkg/status
rename status to status.txt
open with textviewer
choose edit
search mute
replace version number 1.4.1.1-2 by XX
save
close
rename status.txt to status

Now the update will not show

The OpenNotifier plus the customer libstatus bar from the provided repo does work well on 8.4 as reported! ^__^

Thank you so much! I'll have to do this in the morning after I wake up! I've been trying to get MuteIcon for so long. So this is the same exact version, just doesn't install the dependency, right?
