  • Springtomize 2 Gets iOS 6 Support, New Features, Free Upgrade for Existing Owners


    Springtomize 2, a popular jailbreak application for deep customization of the SpringBoard for iOS 5, has now been extended with support for iOS 6. Springtomize 2 comes with many different categories of customization and can keep you from having to install multiple different jailbreak tweaks to get the same job done. It’s really a super tweak.

    Unlike the upgrade from iOS 4 to iOS 5, where Springtomize 2 became a different package from the original Springtomize, Springtomize 2 has been updated to run on both iOS 5 and iOS 6. This means that existing owners of Springtomize 2 can upgrade to the updated version of Springtomize 2 with iOS 6 support for free without having to buy another application to get the iOS 6 support.

    In case you’re not familiar with Springtomize 2, it adds an application icon to your home screen and a preferences pane to your Settings application. You can access either of these to get to Springtomize 2’s options. From the options, you’ll be able to customize all kinds of features of your SpringBoard, such as your device’s animations, capabilities, features of the dock, features of the lock screen, features of your icons, features of your folders, features of your App Switcher, features of your Status Bar, features of Notification Center, and a whole lot more.

    In addition to support for iOS 6, the update includes many fixes and performance enhancements, as a lot of the code was re-written from scratch. Some new features have been added as well.

    Some of the new features include:


    • Apply effects to your wallpaper, such as:
      1. Grayscale
      2. Sepia
      3. Negative
      4. Faded colors
      5. Psycho
      6. Red ascendant
      7. Green ascendant
      8. High contrast
    • Apply effects to your home screen icons, such as:
      1. Negative
      2. Faded colors
      3. Psycho
      4. Red ascendant
      5. Green ascendant
      6. High contrast
    • Ability to disable icon dimming when opening folders
    • Improved check for backup
    • Faster loading


    The Grayscale on Grayscale effect looks cool:



    Some of the fixes include:


    • Restored the old "Hide Knob" option to hide the lock screen slider
    • No more conflicts with f.lux
    • Now uses 'uicache' for cleaning the icon cache
    • Fixes a crash when installing apps


    The developer notes that many more new features for Springtomize 2 are on their way. If you haven't purchased Springtomize 2 yet, you'll be able to get it as soon as you can launch Cydia from the BigBoss repository for just $2.99.

      One could argue the point that if you were to leave your US sim in, you might not make any calls at that rate. If this were true then are you stealing?

      And Krima's only getting his 867MB by using a RAM readout (SBSettings, NCRAM, Springtomize) that include Wired RAM as part of available RAM. Wired RAM is not accessible to the user. Only ncRAM shows only Inactive and Free which is a true readout. When using Springtomize for RAM readout. My phone starts with 835MB RAM even with my 'excessive iWidgets' running.

      Prove it. Show us a screenshot of that readout with all your iwidgets. If not then I will say I have 1.1 GB of free ram on my i5.

I didn't want or need to be schooled on moral relativism. I said that because its FREE they are not benefiting from a MONETARY standpoint. How in the hell can this be argued. Maybe im just a complete moron and always miss the point.

      When u asked before what I'm doing to get good performance out of my phone I never replied because I knew something like this would happen. But it's all good bro. WARCRAFT!!!
      Don't walk away pouting. I'm grateful for all help I received. But when we get into moral gray ground on a topic as 'hitting home' as this one - you're going to get a response from me. I appreciate the find - really I do.

      Fair enough. I just had no idea that recommending a FREE tweak would be a moral gray area. Had I known that u downloading this tweak would prevent u and your family from having an appetizer with y'all main course I would have graciously kept this to myself. My deepest apologies.

      I'm very much kidding here.

      Very easy to get over 800MB when you factor in WIRED RAM. But WIRED can't be user cleared. Only FREE + INACTIVE is a true measure. But when I compare - I'll use the same 'scale' everyone else is using - with wired added in. So we can compare Apples to Apples. My screen shot there has 3 iWidgets running (2 on other pages) plus the animation in Nate's SB widget

      . I hear you Krima. We're okay.. really. What I'm REALLY interested in are your settings in that 'daemons' window. That's GREEK to me. I don't know which stuff I should have on and which off..

      In this set up - page 2 and 3. But I have no screenies of them. Let me load up the one with '5'. And reboot and show you the readout. That will be better. And I actually only run '1' animated at any time. In the setup in the picture - Nate's water is animated too plus the word clock widget which updates every minute - and still rocking 823MB free.

      I'm glad we r good I truly am. As much **** as I give u I never mean to make an enemy out of u.

      If its alright with u I'd rather not discuss what I do with my phone in a public forum as it may cause some confusion and I wouldn't want others to blame me if something went wrong. Cheers.

      We are going to get a response from you no matter what. I mean really. We could be talking about how to make Mac and Cheese and in addition to your six professions and magnitude of scholastic achievements, you would in addition be a chef. Can you understand that explaining Ram to two IT networkers is a passive aggressive attack? If your a networker show me some certificates. A+ or Microsoft or anything for that matter. Your no more than the uncle we move away from that knows everything. Im so over it, if we were in each others presence Id resort to punching you in your face. Believe that! Lol. Don't reply. Just pass over my posts. As i will be doing from now on with yours.

      If you help him anymore i will delete you from my contacts. Not really. But really?

      Well it's a gif if I remember correctly. Your fine man no need to upload a readout. I don't use springtomize for my readout because of the gracious ram readout. I downloaded sbsettings and both ncram tweaks and compared. I'm using the one that aligns with sbsettings. I don't have that jittery issue u mentioned before when scrolling in the settings app. My phone is like butter man, I love it. I'm assuming its because of all the little things I do to it.

      How can one rip off themselves? Check the author of batterydoctor in cydia and in the app store, both are Kingsoft. Same developer for both. He obviously made an app store one for the masses and a more deeply functional one for jailbreakers.

      Look at u Simon. U r on fire today with the helpful information. Well I guess this settles that argument. No one stole from anyone and now every family has food on the table. How cool of that guy to release that awesome tweak for free for the community. I need to send him a Zhōngguó píjiǔ for his troubles. Thanks Simon.
