This new tweak gives you a dedicated page for widgets

By , May 14, 2012

HomeSpringPage is a new jailbreak tweak that will allow you to add an empty first page to your Home screen. This is great, because it allows you to have dedicated real estate for adding Dashboard X widgets.

If you’re a Dashboard X user, HomeSpringPage is a natural fit to accomodate your needs for space. Take a look at our full video walkthrough inside for the proof…

There are no options or settings to configure with HomeSpringPage. After installation, you’ll notice a new first page on your Springboard that’s completely devoid of any app icons.

You can still add app icons to the first page if you choose to do so, but I see it as more of a dedicated space for your favorite widgets.

HomeSpringPage is a free download from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. There’s a lot that you can do with a blank Home screen page, so tell us, how would you go about using this tweak?

    Isn’t 8 homescreens enough?

    Or you could just move your first page icons to another page once a widget from dashboard x is installed. No need for this tweak.

      They will shift back after a respring.

    i have small problem with the weather widget . it doesn’t refresh
    is it because i use springtomize with 80% icons

      I have the same problem with almost all widgets. The clock updates, eventually, but that’s about it. I don’t know why it does this. Pretty annoying so I put the weather back in NC.

      I had the same issue while I had LockInfo and ISX running–when I disabled LI, however, the weather widget, on the SB and in Widget mode, has worked flawlessly. Anyway, I asked Ori about it and he told me he was aware of the bug and it would be fixed in version 1.0.3.

    I put my widgets on the second page, but every time I install a new app it shows up behind the widgets. I have to move everything out of the way to file the app in its proper folder. Hopefully this fixes the issue. Now how do I make the second page my default page…

    Same problem I have to move all the app that I install..fix it please then will see.
    The iPhone is better without Widgets……If the display was a 4.3 inches maybe would be more natural , this is not the case.

    I prefer LockInfo’s option of making a first page that is still to the left of the initiall viewable SB page when unlocked. If this tweak were modified like that, I’d utilize it. As is, I prefer instant access to the first page with icons–the most important apps–instantly. (When using InfoShade).

      I have trouble with lockinfo disappearing when the notification center is activated. So I hide all apps on first page and then add dashboard x widgets
