Okay Mr. Bigarella, you’ve outdone yourself this time. That’s the only phrase that popped into my head upon installing Springtomize and discerning how gaudy his latest jailbreak tweak is.

There’s simply no better description for Springtomize — a jailbreak tweak that takes about 50 other jailbreak tweaks, and rolls them all into one.

In fact, there are so many options here, that it could prove to be a bit overwhelming for those just looking to add slight customizations to their iPhones.

But that’s not who Springtomize is aimed at. It’s aimed at those who want absolute 100% control over the look and feel of their iPhone; it does a pretty good job of doing so too…

Think of any tweak that visually customizes your iPhone’s springboard, and you can almost guarantee that Springtomize has it. From customizations to your status bar, to adjustments to your dock, it’s all here.

Springtomize sits subtly in your Settings.app, not exactly clueing you in on the variety of options contained within. Once inside, though, you’re presented with nearly a dozen different sections to change the look and feel of your iPhone.

From icons, to docks, to status bars and lockscreens, it’s all here. Folders? Check. App switcher? Roger that. There are even custom docks if you’re into that sort of thing.

In a nutshell, Springtomize is like the Walmart of jailbreak tweaks. Come for eggs, and pick up a new vacuum while you’re at it.

If all of that wasn’t enough, the tweak even includes the ability to save custom icon layouts. Say you wanted to keep a specific look to the way your icons are organized, Springtomize allows you to save your springboard’s specific icon state.

When you want to revert to your saved layout, simply tap the name of your layout and respring. All of your icons will appear just like you configured them after the respring. I tested this out and it works just as advertised; it’s an extremely handy feature to have bundled in amongst all of these other features.

Springtomize is not yet available in the Cydia store, but according to developer Filippo Bigarella, it should be available soon for the reasonable price of $2.99. There will also be a free lite version for those who want to try before they buy.

Does Springtomize have your interest piqued?

    How much RAM does it eat

  • Georg W. Bush

    Is it up yet, I really wanna try it.

    • your mom

      yea it is

  • jailbreak guru

    I WANT IT.

  • Tsiv

    Very interesting. Hope this starts some kind of trend!

  • Tsiv

    Thanks for the heads up btw!

  • Ale Sanchez

    WOW! pretty awesome

  • QuarterSwede

    Neat but I tend to stick to stock as I think any customization generally just makes it look and function worse. Good for those who crave this type of thing though.

    • Brad

      Thanks for this post.

  • Michael D

    So is it kinda like “Supreme Preferences” right?

  • Digitalus

    Seems like it might be worthwhile if it saves you from hunting down and installing several separate tweaks from Cydia…. that’s assuming it works as expected and doesn’t consume too many resources.

  • it need to work wit Sb rotator,, and lock info

    • Filippo Bigarella

      It does 😉 with both

  • Andy

    Does it include a springboard landscape rotator? If so, i’m sold!

  • Z

    Interested indeed. Sounds like a good collection of well known tweaks. Jeff, have you encountered any problems with it? And there are some good questions as to how heavy it is on the resurces. Let us know, we are all interested =)

  • Selcuk

    Just tried it, it’s AMAZING!
    Bye bye shrink 😀

  • teresa

    so freaking cool i want it.

  • Leanna Kysar-Mercer

    I’d love to know which apps I can delete, now that I’ve got this. What does it entirely replace?

  • tsiv

    is there a manual for it somewhere?

  • nmdelrio

    I bought this app today as soon as it was available, and it miniaturized the current running app into quarter the size. I had other themes installed so it must have clashed with the others. Every app I open opens quarter-sized, and I can’t tap on any choices, even to uninstall it. I had to go into Safe Mode to uninstall it via Cydia. Here’s a screenshot of my iPT4G .4.2.1 jbroken with GP. I am glad I didn’t install it yet on my iP4. I usually test apps on my iPT4G before shoving them on my iP4.


    I agree it’s a great app but it’s probably nest to uninstall all other customizations before installing Springtomize. As for me, it’s to the trash bin with it. 🙁 maybe if it get’s an update then I will probably re-install it.

  • Chris

    Hmm…I am thinking that I want this app, however, I think I will wait to install it after to do a restore. I have almost every other tweak installed at the moment, and if I install this now…I can see it clashing with my other tweaks. Am I wrong to assume this??

    Example. I have FolderEnhancer installed. If I install this and start messing around with the folder settings…I see bad things happening.

    Has anyone else installed this? Did you install along with other tweaks or start fresh?

    • nmdelrio

      I have installed this with other tweaks and themes like FolderEnhancer, CarbonX HD, Helix Battery, Multifl0w, Lock Seconds, etc, etc, and as I mentioned in my previous post, any app I tap to run in miniaturized to quarter size. I still think Sprintomize is a great all-in-one app, but obiviously it is possible to clash with other tweaks and themes. So I still suggest it be installed with no other tweaks and themes and tae it from there. 🙂

    …and the award for the most buggy “tweak” goes to…
    Major fail.

    • Tsiv

      Can’t imagine what has been buggy for you. I’ve had it installed since day of release and haven’t had problems so far. And I keep installing tweaks all the time. No clash. No bugs. I’m cool 🙂
