  • 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. Itís 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 youíre 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 2ís options. From the options, youíll be able to customize all kinds of features of your SpringBoard, such as your deviceís 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.

      No prob. I went to one of Anthony's news posts and checked out how he did it. Funny thing is I accidentally pasted over his news thread link video. So his news link led to the matrix video for a few minutes while I was figuring out that I had pasted it in the wrong place lol. All good now though, I hope lol.

      I think he was referring to your fighting discipline u mentioned not the punch in the face.

      Nah. Read again. He was 'swaggering' a bit and I just swaggered back by telling him it would be unlikely he'd be able to even land a punch with my TaeKwonDo training (which has nothing to do with KungFu anyway). Additionally I never claimed mastery. Masters start at Red/Black and up thru the Black belt levels. I'm only Red (lower than Red/Black).

      I never said anything about u being a master so I don't get why u gave that bit of information on the meanings of the pretty belt colors. I don't need to read it again I already read it.

      Even some of the greatest fighters don't claim that they wouldn't even get hit. You swaggered a lot I think. Either way, I would pay good money for that show. Lol.

      My kid has one of those. Cost him about 4 years and $149.99 a year. He's 9 years old.

      Never said you did. Pinoy did in his mocking of me.
      so I don't get why u gave that bit of information on the meanings of the pretty belt colors.
      To counter the assertion by Pinoy that I claimed mastery when I didn't.
      I don't need to read it again I already read it.
      Obviously not clearly enough, bro.
      Follow caerfully, Krima, in sequential order tonight:

      Very simple, clear communications. No claim of mastery on my part. Pinoy's words. You got a little lost, bro. . All clear now?

      People are trying to put words in my mouth to build a 'discredit' case. It's your favorite pastime. But I can't let it happen too much - or the 'group think' will be allowed to come back.

      No one belt level before 'master' he doesn't, bro.

      The tweak doesn't call when searched in Cydia. May have something to do with it natively being in Chinese I think. Just type batterydoctor with no space and it should be the first one to show up. Let me know what u think of it.
      (Now let me respond to this the right way as I should have yesterday)

      WOW!!!!!!!!! KRIMA!! What have you found for me here!!! This tweak is ZONKERS COOL!.. So much functionality. LOVE the implementation into the NC. That's the best part.

      Tell me a couple of things.
      1) I don't see a Toggle for OpenSSH. I had that in NCSettings and SBSettings. Do you know if I'm just missing it?

      2) The normal setup for INDOOR is to turn off Cellular and Data. But the 'cellular' they're referring to isn't my PHONE is it? I will still get CALLS - right? They're just trying to turn off my cellular data since I'll be on Wifi.. right?

      Looks like the company that gave us BatteryDr in the app store - made a 'version for the hacker' here in Cydia.

      Many thanks. I may have more questions - the deeper I get into this puppy!

      I'm happy u r enjoying it. U shouldn't really need a OpenSSh toggle because it should be on by default. Just make sure u change the root password using something like mobile terminal. Doesn't have every toggle as sbsettings but good enough for my needs.

      I don't know how to change passwords in the phone - so I prefer the toggle. But thanks! (I've tried the terminal methods - none have worked for me).

      What about my question 2 there?

      Yeah u don't want to disable your cellular data but maybe your LTE if u r connected to wifi. Still playing around with it myself. Mobile terminal is in the big boss repo I believe and it works fine in ios6 for i5. Changing the root password is easy. If u ever want to know just PM me.

      I was reading that turning off the LTE can be bad. That's why ncSettings doesn't let the icon show.

      Interesting, I haven't heard that before. Will have to look into that. Curious as to why. I wondered why the other similar tweaks never provided that option. If u find out more details let me know please.

      I confirmed today that the 'cellular' toggle in Settings General is only referring to Data. Not phone. I let BatteryDrPro turn off Cellular Data when I'm indoors and still got calls! The only toggle that turns off cellular calls too is Airplane Mode - evidently. That surprised me. I would have thought that switching off the Cellular toggle in General would have switched off phone too.

      Cool. This whole time I just always assumed cellular data turned off would turn off your ability to make or receive phone calls. I wonder if this has always been or something new. I never had a reason to disable it or care about finding out but its always nice to learn something new about my sexy i5. God I love her.
