  • 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!

      Etc, etc

      Winterboard

      Vertical scrolling = tweak required
      Managed icon placement = several tweaks
      Page jumping = tweak required

      It just seams that a theme like that would be better on DB. I love DB, it just never fully took off and most development has been stopped.
      Interesting. You just never really saw many Dreamboard theme threads around. Seems like it never caught on. Uphill battle I would guess with the creator of Cydia promoting his own creation - Winterboard.

      Im actually thinking about doing a clean restore,although,since deleting Springtimize,ive had no missing ucon problems.Maybe just delete it so how it goes?Maybe someone with more knowledge could recomend what to do?

      It hasn't experienced the need for a lot of updating for iOS6 as WinterBoard did?

      Was Dreamboard bug free since iOS 6 and the evasion jailbreak? Winterboard was not. Has dreamboard gone through any updates since the jailbreak?

      It's been almost 2 years since Dreamboard has had an update.

      Yet still working.

      I just got an e-mail from chpwn morning in response to my inquiries, directing me to todays update for Gridlock. I'm happy to say that it's resolved the crashing issue for me. I've been able to re-install Barrel, SBsettings, and Winterboard, everything is working fine.

      hi guys,

      Just wanted to share my experience with gridlock 2.0.

      First of all Great App .....

      i had issues of random missing app and missing folders when i woke up

      so i emailed the dev .......

      to cut the story short he emailed me back with a new release hehe 2.0.2 so far so good

      Nice dev well worth the payment

      PS email i sent to him:

      > Hi
      >
      > Just purchased ur app. Its nice great work. I have one problem tho after configuring the screens i want i recharged my fone overnight and waking up to missing icons amd folders. I then respring to no avail and so i rebooted to no avail again dis this 3 times i guess. So i decided to uninstall gridlock since it was my last up installed. Viola my apps are all back 6 pages of it hehe. Respring and run icleaner. And reinstall gridlock 2. Now is there a way to prevent this from happening agan. Dont want to rearranging my screens everyday. Btw when i woke up i have 3 notifications from kickstarter app thats all i had. Attached is my list of apps

      Please update to Gridlock 2.0.2.

      It should resolve this issue.

      It doesn't seem that people are having any issues with it, but with Gridlock 2.0.4 installed, if I try to drag an icon to the next screen my phone completely crashes. I have to perform a power reset. Do I need to install anything else to get this to work properly?

      Could be a couple things causing that. Are there icons left on the screen where you are dragging the icon from?

      Try disabling gridlock with:

      SBSettings - More - Mobile Substrate Addons - Gridlock slider to off

      Exit SBSettings it will respring, then try moving an icon again, if you still have a crash it's not gridlock causing your issue

      This crash was a well known issue in an earlier version of Iconoclasm and earlier version of Gridlock after the jailbreak came out. But it's been gone for a long time. WHEN the issue was an issue for me - the PROBLEM was cause by moving an icon from one page to another where the destination page already had ALL AVAILABLE ICON SPOTS used. There had to be at least one icon spot open in the iconoclasm layout you were using to prevent the crash. But again - I don't have even THAT problem anymore with the newest versions of Icono and Gridlock.

      Maybe he doesn't have the latest version then, that could explain it.
