    Default 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.

    Springtomize is a great tweak, even if just to disable the multitasking/recent apps feature. Also good to see they are not trying to charge for an upgrade to iOS 6.

    "We've rewritten almost all the code from scratch, added new features AND we don't charge you to upgrade". Intelliborn: We charge you to use our products with a new version of iOS.

    I guess if you're a company, you have to charge users to pay staff their hours and such... but jeez it gets old when you've had their products from iOS 3.X.

    HoldUp - you mean I can free up my RAM to almost never be full - never have more than the APP I'm using at a given time?????? That's a feature of Springtomize2???? Where is that setting, please?!?!

    Filippo was developing for iOS 5.1.1. Not iOS 5.0.1. This is the reason we always recommend to get to the latest jailbreakable firmware before jailbreaking. Compatibility, compatibility, and compatibility.

    If you're going to jailbreak tomorrow, I suggest you go to iOS 6.1 and not iOS 6.0/iOS 6.0.1/iOS 6.0.2.

    Multitasking is one of the main known reasons for loss of RAM - apps staying stuck in the switcher.. It seems like Springtomize can actually turn this functionality in the phone OFF - so, like turning PUSH off will allow only Manual get mail or Fetch schedule for getting mai; -- with Springtomize set a certain way an app will only reside in memory while it's 'OPEN' and then when hitting home button - RAM will clear again. I think that's what this tweak claims to do.. Just wanting to verify. There are few things more 'slowing' to a jailbroken phone - than a full APP switcher.

    You obviously have no clue how iOS handles RAM. Maybe Simon or Suby will explain it, I'm tired of explaining it.
