  • Gridlock 2.0 Released With Full iOS 6 Support


    Gridlock, a very popular jailbreak tweak among themers trying to make more room for widgets and other miscellaneous stuff, and the occasional Bob looking to make their wallpaper stand out more, has been updated Thursday with support for iOS 6. The new version is called Gridlock 2.0.

    The tweak allows the user to put application icons anywhere they want to on a grid on the home screen (like shown above). Normally when you move an application icon, the next icon in line bounces into the place you just dragged an icon out of. Gridlock prevents this, making it so that you can create interesting home screen patterns to make the application icons less of the focus on the home screen and make more room for other things.

    The beautiful thing about Gridlock is that it does this without creating fake application icons, leaving icon shadows, or some other sketchy way of making it look like there are empty spaces in between your application icons. Gridlock is 100% true application icon grid-locking for your home screen.

    Gridlock 2.0 is a complete re-write of the Gridlock tweak, seeing as how iOS 6 changed a lot of how application icon movement works and made upgrading the tweak a lot more difficult. The developer, chpwn, notes that because it took a lot of hard work to make Gridlock iOS 6-compatible, he is charging a $1.99 upgrade fee for existing owners. Those who don't own Gridlock already will find the tweak in Cydia for $4.99.

    In addition to the iOS 6 support, it works beautifully on the iPhone 5. Gridlock is compatible with iOS 3 and later. If you're interested, Gridlock is now available in Cydia's BigBoss repository!

      Love Gridlock! But an upgrade fee, really? Should be free...or .99 cents.

      I have them running side by side with no problems. But I don't have IntelliscreenX. But Gridlock and MultiIconMover working fine for me.

      I've grown so used to using Iconoclasm and Icono Layout Maker for Icon positioning setups. That I really haven't missed GridLock at all this time. But there's always that one page with two icons on one side and you want one far left and one far right for a 'symmetry' thing. So GridLock is just 'convenient' in that scenario. Worth the $1.99 upgrade price to me.

      As soon as I installed this it put my phone into safe mode. I tried uninstalling through cydia, but I'm still in safe mode. Obviously it doesn't like one of my tweaks. But which one. Now, how to get out of safe mode?

      I purchased the upgrade and my phone says "package officially purchased" but I get a spinning wheel where the install button should be, it has been that way for hours, I have tried rebooting but it didn't help, does anyone have any idea how to correct the problem ?

      price is a bit steep, even for the upgrade

      Edit: are Devs getting greedy?

      or you could've used Iconoclasm's Per-Page Layouts

      Don't need to say much about Gridlock...except, buy it!
      I had it on my iphone 4 and now I have it on my iphone 5.
      And of course it works perfectly.

      I think so. Would there be an upgrade fee if Apple approved this tweak for the app store? Nope. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about supporting Devs, which I did when I first purchased Gridlock a while back, but an upgrade fee? Seriously? No wonder the web is filled w/ tons of people asking about where people can get apps that cost money in Cydia for free.

      So 2 $ for just a iOS update and 5$ for tweak is not what i would call a fair price.

      Anyway.
      The problem is the following: EVERY USER of my lates theme exxOS reported me that
      his iPhone crashes and freezes with Gridlock 2.

      It seems the developer made Gridlock 2 no compatible to his own(!) tweak Infiniboard.

      Price and compatibility: Currently a epic fail.

      Nice. Seems to be compatible with everything I am currently using.

      Coming from Android (against my will), this really fills a gap for me!

      I've been waiting for this upgrade for a while. I PAID for it when I had my 4S jailbroken on 5.x but I will not pay for it again. I think the dev will lose money on this. Been nice knowing you gridlock.

      I installed it, and it messed up my icon layout, spent a long time putting stuff in the correct folders with multiiconmover and folderenhancer. Now iconsupport gave me a crash warning...

      Ahhhhhhh yeaaaaah! Since I jumped aboard 6+ a month ago this was one of the few tweaks that I've been missing... I have been checking a couple times every day to see if it was updated... Was so stoked last night to see it was updated... The upgrade price isn't a problem to me as I think the Devs time and energy is worth it... I bet most people complaining about the upgrade or purchase price would have made this tweak, and had to rewrite it, that y'all would be asking for some money for it too... Devs are getting greedy? Living this life ain't free and time can be money, so buck up you whiners, fork out the 2 bucks to upgrade because its worth it for your layout options and worth it to help a Dev make a lil extra dough... If y'all were Devs working on tons of tweaks you would prolly like to be able to supplement your income too, if not have all your finances come from your Dev work... Oh yeah, and someone said it wasn't compatible with infiniboard? It works just fine with infiniboard... Thanks for the update Bruddah... Aloha...
