08-13-2012, 04:35 PM #1Need help customizing iPhone springboard...
Now as I'm new to this forum, I have no idea(as usual) if this is the right place in the forum to post it. If not, please correct me
Anyways, what I want is others reflections and suggestions of different apps found from Cydia that keeps the springboard itself as clean from icons as possible, but I can still access all my normal iPhone, App store and Cydia apps in a different way. Since I like my phone to have the best design, I want to keep my wallpaper completely clean from icons(as well as completely blank pages, as well as no spotlight search). I tried out usin' "Poof!" in order to hide all icons and use my spotlight search to access my apps, but the problem were that the musics app could not be hidden and the spotlight search is way too slow and laggy. I also tried out Superswitcher, but it wasn't compatible with my iPhone(iPhone 4 ios 5.1.1, jailbreaked with Absinthe). Also, when I disable the icons with Poof, the settings for them is removed as well from the settings app(For instance, as I hide the mail app, it gets removed from the settings app too!), which I want to be prevented.
So in short:I want my springboard to be completely clean, and the only way I want to access my apps on is to search for them in some other way than the spotlight search. And I don't want just one app that does it all, I want everybody's opinions and what they think is good.
Thanks for readin'

Welcome to MMi
Wow, talk about minimalist huh? Not sure what tweak you could use, but I find myself asking "why"? Clean but not handy to use it would seem to me, but only my opinion.
I have moved your thread to a section that may generate more views and perhaps you answer.

Well to me it sounds like you want to rid your springboard of all the crap and make it so it just shows icons, right? If you want to do that, I recommend TidySpring. If its more customization you want, install Springtomize. Hope that helped
Oops, i reread your thread and saw u wanted no icons. The best answer I can give you is to use infinidock and/or infinifolder and put all your apps into folders and/or your dock.

Exactley, I wan my springboard to be completely blank so that I can reach my icons by searching for em', just like spotligh search does, but much more optimized and faster(in other words, a more compact app launcher with a search feature ^^)

Welcome to the world of MMI.
I would say download ad install Poof from Cydia and then you can hide away to your harts content.
