Add Themes to Your Folder Icons With ‘Beautifolders’

By , Sep 7, 2011

Looking to add some much needed pizzaz to your iPhone’s folder icons? What about the ability to create your own folder themes from scratch?

Beautifolders is just that — an easy to use theming platform, capable of adding some spice to the iPhone’s stock folder icons.

Check inside for a video demonstration of this easy to use jailbreak tweak…

Beautifolders adds a settings panel to the iPhone’s Settings app, which allows you to pick from three different built in themes.

The themes work by recognizing the name of the folder, and theming the folder according to its name. All of the theme names are defined in advance, so the names must fall within the predefined criteria.

If you’re feeling courageous, the tweak also contains instructions for creating your own folder icon themes.

Is your iPhone jailbroken? If so, you can download Beautifolders free of charge from Cydia’s ModMyi repo.

Check it out today, and let us know what you think below.

    • Connor

      @Basit It’s not infinifolders, it’s FolderEnhancer

      • Basit Iqbal

        Thankyou so much :)

      • Barack

        That’s what I meant. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I said infinifolders.

    That is really nice. Another great tweak that Apple might steal.

    Doesn’t work at all, I get nothing but the gay grey folder, i’ve made custom 1’s, named correctly and correct size and it never changes anything, waste of time.

    Hey Jeff, do a review on Foldericons, similar tweak that changes the icon of the folder. Personally I like Foldericons better.

    • DomPerignon

      Agree 100%. Changing the folder icon is a nice tweak but Foldericons is more powerful, very easy to use and uses much less memory; in short, Foldericons is better.

    I can’t find this in Cydia.

    • BLTKOR

      You need to have ModMyi repo.
      apt.modmyi.com

      • DIno

        II’ve got the modmyi repo but it’s still not working.

      • Shannon

        Yeah, I have Modmyi, everyone does, I can’t find this on my iPhone or iPad, even went into the Modmyi repo.

  • Shelagh Broughton

    I have the repo, but no where do i see this in there and Ive looked 4x now and done a search still cant find it? Any ideas?

  • Shelagh Broughton

    M…going with FolderIcons

  • Meh

    Dear iDB,

    You explained in a previous post how to share links to a cydia application, so would you please consider including a link to the application? Thanks!

  • Shelagh Broughton

    I installed FolderIcons and now i can no longer boot my phone into its proper jailbreaking mode. Its in safe mode and i cant seem to get it out of safe mode. Without being able to, I cannot get back into Cydia to delete FolderIcons which must be the problem seeing as it happened right afterwards.

    Is thee any method to get a phone OUT of safe mode I am not aware of?

    TIA

    • Shannon

      You should be able to get into Cydia and uninstall in safe mode.

  • Shelagh Broughton

    Thanks Shannon. I completely forgot I had CYDIA on my iPhone if in safe mode…….I kept thinking it was inaccessible but once i saw your post I looked closer for it, found it and uninstalled FolderIcons and now its fine again. Very surprised FolderIcons would have done that to my phone but i rebooted about 25x and it just would not go out of safe mode once I installed that. ;-(

    Better now Thanks again

    Hey Jeff/guys, are there any other icons besides the Music icon? Like for social maybe? Ones that come stock with beautifolders that is. Thanks!
