  • Filippo Bigarella Speaks Out About Springtomize 3


    Springtomize is a highly regarded tweak in the iOS jailbreak community, because it adds so much customization to iOS in one package. The developer behind the tweak, Filippo Bigarella, has spoken out about the future of Springtomize.

    With iOS 7 being another major release of Apple's iOS operating system, this means that Springtomize will need to be completely re-written from scratch. Bigarella is working on Springtomize 3, the next major upgrade to the jailbreak tweak, so that users can start customizing just about every aspect of their iOS 7 device(s).

    Bigarella notes that the evasi0n7 jailbreak for iOS 7.0-7.0.4 came without any warning, so this means he hasn't had the proper amount of time to start preparing the update, but he also notes that he has been working on Springtomize 3 and estimates that he's anywhere from 35-40% done with coding it Ė most of the tweak's foundation and hooks have been implemented already.

    Since when it was released, I have been working on updating my tweaks, even though I had an exam and I went on holidays to Miami (Iím actually typing this on my phone while sitting on a bus heading back to North Beach, after spending the whole day in Key West). Iíll submit an update for CleverPin as soon as I get home on Friday, featuring iOS 7 and ARM64 support, among other general improvements (sorry - I didnít manage to push it tonight ).

    As most of you know, I had already been working on Springtomize 3 before the release of evasi0n7: unfortunately, while I managed to get a lot of work done, I canít really say I got much farther than 35-40%.

    This is mainly because of the fact that itís not an update, at all; itís a complete rewrite, based on a completely new structure designed to solve many of the technical challenges that a big project like Springtomize brings to the game (and if youíve ever developed an iOS tweak, you may be able to guess some of them).

    From that 35-40%, I think I can safely say that, as of now, itís at least half percent done: the ďfoundationĒ on which everything is based is nearly complete, many ďhooksĒ have been written (which means that it already has a lot of features). Whatís missing right now is expanding even more the number of available features andÖ Settings.

    Yep, settings are a big missing point when it comes to Springtomize, and require a lot of work and testing: oh, not even counting that they need to be designed to be as user friendly as possible, because I donít want people to get lost.

    Beta testers have been chosen and Iíve just let them know theyíre part of the team; I feel like theyíre all very competent people with the skills required to help me make Springtomize better.

    I canít really wait to show you Springtomize 3ís full potential, but please, bear with me while I try to do my best to build a product that people will enjoy. You will not be disappointed.
    Bigarella mentions that he has chosen his beta testers for the new Springtomize release and needs some more time from those waiting for the update.

    Below, you can see Springtomize 3 working some magic on iOS 7:



    We will continue to keep you updated on the progress of this benchmark jailbreak tweak. Stay tuned!

      I'm willing to pay for this tweak even if I already have springtomize 2. I know it's worth the buy.

      Hmmm... I was so excited about a tweak called: Lockdown Pro iOS7 when I saw it. This tweak is one of my best tweaks for protecting your apps. Any apps you want to lock this tweak will get the job done for you and also when I install it -----> respiring -----> and it went on "SafeMode" and none of the other tweaks that I have installed is working properly. Oh well, just gonna wait until they updated it I guess.....

      Single most NB reason to JB IMHO!! I currently have several tweaks/apps/mods installed which Springtomize handles on its own, plus so, so, so much more!!
