    Default Homescreendesigner stinks!
    OK is it me or does Homescreendesigner stink? I upgraded to the latest versiob 1.0.8.1 and now my Ipad is stuck on the Apple boot logo. Onn 1.0.6 I couldn't move icons. Why did they kill development on Iconoclasm? That works for me, but layout maker only likes iphone/ipods. I can't save anything for the Ipad. It will just keeps saying cancel/save. I wish Homescreendesigner would work. I guess I'll have to look for updates. I didn't know if anyone else had issues with it.

    Maybe tell the creator and get some feedback directly?
    he (or she) is updating quite often

    Homescreendesigner was working fine until the update did the same thing to my iPhone 5 today. Had to reset by pressing home and lock buttons together, then restarted again while holding volume up button. Deleted Homescreendesigner and another app which I had also just updated (it began with Icon....), which I think was installed by Homescreendesigner. Resprung. Still no jailbreak apps working. Reinstalled Cydia Substrate. Resprung. Used Safe Mode app to respring into safe mode. Finally was able to respring and got my jailbreak apps back (except Homescreendesigner). I'll be watching for an fix for Homescreendesigner. Hope this helps.

    I had the same issue with the last update and had to restore my phone and re jailbreak. I will stay off that tweak for a while even though i was quite enjoying it. Sucks that they didn't take the time to test their update enough…

    I submitted a description of the problem to the author and got this email back:
    "1.0.9 will be released shortly, sorry for the problems in the recent updates."
    I'm glad the author was responsive. I'm waiting hopefully, but I probably won't try the next update until I read that some people have used it without crashing.

    Well, I'm good for another restores. I install OpenSSH, I respring. I install Winterboard I respring. I installed the following updates, I respring.

    I install HomeScreenDesigner and there, oh surprise, I stuck on the apple. Reboot to reboot

    nice

    I updated hs designer today with no problems. I did not follow instructions listed on the tweak since icon support was updated today.

    1). if you have nested folders (folders in folders) I would recommend taking those folders out prior to updating.

    2). If you have any page set to a limited amount of icons (3x3, 4x4 etc) you will want to apply the default layout to the page instead. To be safe I applied the default layout to each page.

    3). Update icon support first. Then update hs designer.

    4). Re-apply previous layouts. Make sure the icons on the page do not exceed the layout limit.

    Finally, move nested folders back.

    One problem I (and others) experienced was after an update you end up with an icon in the upper left corner that can't be moved. Icons will sometimes appear stacked in this corner and any attempt to move usually results in a crash. If this happens it can be fixed by applying a larger icon layout like the default. This way the system has no trouble re-placing icons. You do not have to respring if this happens. Just apply a larger layout. Or as a preventative measure apply default layouts as listed above.

    If I install for the first time (restore) HomeScreenDesigner, do I install support icon in the first ?

    I think both will install when you install hs designer. Unless you already had something like gridlock as a replacement.

    Your layouts must be off. I'm using a i5 on 7.0.4 with over 20 tweaks.
