Change Folder Icons to Show 2x2 Application Grids With '2x2 Folder Icons'
Most of you are probably familiar with graphic designer Surenix’s popular WinterBoard theme called ayecon. The theme comes with a built-in tweak that lets the user choose between having the stock folder grid appearance, or switching to 2x2 grids.
Surenix has released a standalone jailbreak tweak called 2x2 Folder Icons in Cydia that will allow users to have this same 2x2 folder grid effect on devices without the ayecon WinterBoard theme. As shown above, the 3 columns and 3 rows (default) of folder icons have been changed to 2 columns and 2 rows after the tweak was installed and enabled.
After installing the tweak, you will be able to head over to the Settings application and visit the preferences pane for the tweak. From the preferences pane, you will be able to enable and disable the tweak on demand. Each time you change a setting, you’ll have to respring the device – luckily, the tweak comes with a hand little respring button:
The 2x2 folder icon layout is a nice little modification for those of you that want to clean up the look of those cluttered folder icons. The tweak is currently available in the BigBoss repository of Cydia for 99¢, however if you own ayecon already, the tweak will be free to you.

I tested this tweak this morning with my iPad mini and it doesn't look good at all.

I found a bug. If one is not in a folder, and they hold an app to activate the move or delete function, the folders affected by this tweak Will display a black and gray bar in place of the apps within the folder. Needless to say, it's not very aesthetically pleasing.

Now that I finally figured out how to post screen caps, I can demonstrate what I was talking about. However, given the fact that this tweak has not been updated, I doubt this issue will be addressed. Which is a shame for the those of us who paid for it.
