  • Shrink: Resize your Springboard Icons. There's An App for That.


    One of my favorite things about themes for the iPhone and iPod touch, are the ones that make icon sizes much smaller. There is more screen real-estate, and things just look much nicer in a "nano" form. Unfortunately, if the icon had not been created for that theme, then it remains large and looks funny among the rest.

    Today there is brand new app called Shrink. Using shrink you can set a specified percentage of how big you want the icons to be from their original sizes. Once you've chosen your size, simply respiring, and voila. Smaller icons! This app is also compatible with winterboard, iconoclasm, and infinidock.

    Shrink is developed by phoenix3200, who has also brought us Music Controls, CalendarPro (Profiles), and Resupported. You can grab Shrink, and his other apps in the Cydia store now.
    Shrink runs for $0.99.

      Got a major problem, couldn't connect to App store to update my apps, so I deleted /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist bad idea because I had Infinidock and Infiniboard and my icons went everywhere. I then later rearranged after 2 hours roughly where 260 apps went and then used shrink to go to %80 from %100 now I'm stuck in an infinite loop. In the past when this happened I SSH the phone wait until it connects usually for only about 2 minutes but enough to delete the offending app or apps I last installed. then is works like it was before. This time I need to delete shrink but as its a Cydia app I cant find it anywhere before my 2 minutes are up. Anyone have an idea where its stored. If I delete shrink I might get back. Cant restore 260+ apps without major loss of data. Yep I'm in a fix. Please any help and I will reward with my latest Wifi signal bars theme dedicated to them. Many thanks in advance

      Oh yeah, literally while typing I just discovered there are traces of Cydia apps in /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries
      So if this helps anyone with a similar predicament here is a good starting block. I will of course inform folk of my progress.......or torch my iphone of the insurance and claim it burst into flames in my hand (might get a bit of compo to boot).
