Springtomize 2

Now that we’re able to jailbreak our iOS 7 devices, and MobileSubstrate has been fixed, the next question on everyone’s mind is when will the major tweaks start getting updated? A few, like iFile already have, but we’re still waiting on a lot of them.

The good news is, we just received a status update on Filippo Bigarella’s upcoming Springtomize tweak. The developer says that he’s completely rewriting the popular utility for its third iteration, and at this point he believes he’s over halfway done…

Here’s an excerpt from Bigarella’s blog post regarding the update:

This is mainly because of the fact that it’s not an update, at all; it’s a complete rewrite, based on a completely new structure designed to solve many of the technical challenges that a big project like Springtomize brings to the game (and if you’ve ever developed an iOS tweak, you may be able to guess some of them).

From that 35-40%, I think I can safely say that, as of now, it’s at least half percent done: the “foundation” on which everything is based is nearly complete, many “hooks” have been written (which means that it already has a lot of features). What’s missing right now is expanding even more the number of available features and… Settings.

Yep, settings are a big missing point when it comes to Springtomize, and require a lot of work and testing: oh, not even counting that they need to be designed to be as user friendly as possible, because I don’t want people to get lost.

And for those unfamiliar with the tweak, here’s our walkthrough of V2:

Bigarella goes on to say that beta testers have been chosen, and that he can’t wait to show off Springtomize 3’s full potential. He asks that everyone bear with him while he takes his time completing the tweak, and promises we “will not be disappointed.”

For those interested, Bigarella also notes that he’s working on an update for his CleverPin tweak, adding iOS 7 and ARM64 support. He plans on submitting the new version to Cydia sometime this weekend, so look for that to be available shortly.

    Thank you!!!!!!!!! Waiting for this!! Just need DashboardX back

    • iCick e Ciak

      Why? There is nothing!

      • Rick Hart

        What are you talking about? Ive paid for springtomize i want it back

      • s0me

        You will pay again for the ios 7 version.

      • Rick Hart

        And I will

      • cam mctoomey

        Lol why would you think your license would carry over to version 3 when you just read that he had to completely rewrite the tweak from scratch…
        this will be money the programmer richly deserves for his Quality and speedy work.

      • Rick Hart

        And I will or an update charge

      • cam mctoomey

        Good on ya 😉

  • Ben


  • Dosen’t Matter

    Does Cyueue will be available sometime?

    • That’s a Saurik tweak I believe and he didn’t update most of his tweaks after iOS 6 so I doubt it. I would love to have it again but I remember it being buggy as hell and he never even updated it to address those issues.

  • :O


    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Writing in capital letters won’t get its development done any quicker. Since iOS 7 is essentially an entirely new operating system most tweaks need to be re-written from the ground up. In terms of Winterboard although I can’t confirm I’ve heard it is working (for icons only) on 32 bit devices as long as Summerboard mode is enabled…

    • Jonathan

      A. Caps are annoying
      B. it makes everyone want to downvote you
      C. Patience is key, which apparently, you don’t have
      D. If you really want it, just use iFIle and manually replace the icons if you’re that desperate.
      E. Please rant somewhere else.

      • Dan

        I agree, I downvoted him before reading your comment.

      • Tikimaker

        Me too! No reason to demand anything. It all takes time.

      • Kenrick Fernandes

        Jonathan i respect you. You have been here long enough. I just don’t get it. This guy is a troll. Why did you even bother reading his comment. Just like your eye is trained to avoid ads/banner on the right hand side of websites.. then you should have just ignored his comments. He’s probably basking in glory that someone has replied to his shitty comment. Just my 2 cents.

      • Jonathan

        I appreciate that. Curiosity takes over in what all the excitement/frustration is about. And if I know this guy is a troll, I do my best to make sure he doesn’t do it again. 😉

    • Royce Otero

      Dreambord sucks.

  • Josh Moccia

    You the man!!!

  • Jonathan

    I can’t thank you enough. I look very forward to this tweak. It’s one of my favorites. 🙂

  • Maxim∑

    Bluetooth mouse support for iPad Air/Mini would be nice and this

    • Jonathan

      Does that support iPhone? How would you connect a mouse that requires a little USB thingy in the side?

      Beat the other person who was typing to him. 😀
      ~End of randomness

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        USB devices can actually be connected to an iPad via a cheap Chinese (or the expensive Apple) adaptor. I think the OP was specifically talking about Bluetooth mouses though so this wouldn’t really be a concern of his…

      • Jonathan

        Really? I once asked an Apple person if there is Lightning to USB. He said no. :/
        I must research this..

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        I don’t know about lightning but there is definitely a 30-pin-to-USB since I have one somewhere for my iPad 3…

      • Jonathan

        Well then, sweet. Thanks. 🙂

      • Nate McKelvie

        The apple connection kit ( lightning version ) has a USB port but the only thing you can use it for is USB headphones, USB flash drive ( but only to copy pictures and the pictures must be in a folder named DCIM on the thumb drive ) and to connect a camera or iPhone to the iPad to copy pictures and video to iPad, and copying to iPhone is not supported at all. I’ve seen jailbreak tweaks that supposedly added more functionality but never seen a working one

      • DRYN84


        I remember using an app from Cydia in order to connect my Apple bluetooth keyboard and mouse to my 2nd gen iPad, probably around iOS 4 times.

        Maybe something to look into if its a feature you are after.

        (Bluetooth devices such as KB, Mouse and USB flash drives can be connected to an iPad with the 30-pin-USB adapter and the feature that apple implemented in iOS 5 to prevent this by issuing a warning about not enough power can be avoided by using a simple powered or non-powered usb hub.)

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Speaking of iPad tweaks I’d love to see Emblem get an update and that tweak that allows for ‘true multi-tasking’ by placing apps in frames / windows (I can’t remember its name)…

      • Aniket Bhatt

        It’s called Quesar

      • TROK TheRealOneKid

        You mean “quasar”

      • Tahir Ahmetovic

        I want that tweak back so badly

      • Nate McKelvie

        I thought quasar didn’t work for anything past ios5?

      • Tahir Ahmetovic

        not sure

      • Luis Ramos Estrada

        Background manager ??

  • ::/DeltaStylez::

    Do springtomize 2 need to buy springtomize 3?

    • TROK TheRealOneKid

      Most likely, since fillipo stated that its not an update. Its somehing completely new for the operating system

      • ::/DeltaStylez::

        Ok, because ISX6 users don’t need to buy ISX7.

      • TROK TheRealOneKid

        Wait, theres an ISX 7? I didnt know that. And i just checked cydia-there isnt one

      • ::/DeltaStylez::

        Not yet. It’s in the make. But they said ISX6 users don’t need to buy the ISX7.

    • Carlos Gomes

      Nah. Springtomize 2 just had twins, he can’t afford to buy the new tweak.

    • Mohamed Hassabo

      There’s a chance that people who bought springtomize 2 will get a discount on version 3. I think that’s what happened last time.

  • Jeremy

    I’m really curious about this tweak and Intelliscreen X’s iOS 7 update 🙂

    • marcus1324

      I want IntelliID and IntelliScreenX for iOS 7

  • MrMos3s

    Are capital letters really that bothersome? I can still read words that are capitalized. Maybe you are using dictation and the voice yells anything that is capitalized? I will never understand some of the petty things that get us humans so riled up. Someone is probably being murdered at this very moment, just be happy that you aren’t being murdered, it probably sucks a lot worse than having to read capital letters. Oh yeah, and all this jailbreak stuff is cool. Take care.

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Capital letters are perceived as shouting so yes they really are that bothersome.

    • Jonathan

      To some it may. It is considered shouting, which generally means anger or annoyance. I’d suggest you don’t do it, unless there’s a proper reason (i.e a bootrom exploit has been found for A5 – A7, then everyone shouts out of excitement. :P)

      Fineprint: a bootrom exploit has not been found, it’s an example. You can stop biting your tongue.

      • TROK TheRealOneKid

        True. Its all about the context that your using all caps for

  • Amir Hossein

    It’s good

  • Burge

    You said it at the start
    “Now that we’re able to jailbreak our iOS 7 devices, and MobileSubstrate has been fixed, the next question on everyone’s mind is when will the major tweaks start getting updated? A few, like iFile already have, but we’re still waiting on a lot of them.”
    What about something new something that makes me wish IOS had this from the start whilst these tweaks are great I’ve got to say it “been there done that that’s so IOS 5.”
    And before anyone says anything like make your own tweaks. I’am no developer. I just want a tweak that makes jailbreaking worth the wait for the jailbreak to be released.

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      The simple tweaks are sometimes the best I want simple tweaks like the following:

      Enable transparent keyboard on iPad (and blur effect but this has already been done)

      Force the iOS 7 keyboard in apps that have not yet been updated for iOS 7…

      Enable the downloading and installing of AppStore apps while using them (is this possible?)

      Enable AirDrop on unsupported devices that can actually be supported but Apple has selected to be unsupported (for example my iPad 3) – this is done but requires installing sketchy Chinese repos

  • Fevostone

    There is a tweak I’m hoping comes out is a total black UI I think that will be sweet all black instead of white just saying so if your a developer and your readying this plz make it plz

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      It sounds like what you’re asking is for a Winterboard theme (when Winterboard is updated) for a black UI instead of a white one…

      • Fevostone

        Summit like that yes pal

      • Noaaahh

        Not necessarily WinterBoard theme. You ‘could’ achieve it through a tweak.

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        While true I think using a tweak just for this purpose would be overkill…

      • Noaaahh

        Doesn’t WinterBoard slow down your device (startup, respring, etc) – mine has never been slow with WinterBoard while using a full theme, but some have said it slows it down completely for them. Either way, I’d like to see a “Night Mode for iOS 7” in any form!

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        It depends what you mean by ‘slow down’ essentially any and every tweak will ‘slow down’ your device a little bit because they load extra launch daemons during startup…

  • Raul M

    I have a problem on my jail broken iPhone 5 on 7.0.4 jail broke with latest version of evasi0n after a couple of days with it was working fine and now I can’t open Mail, Safari, or the weather app. Please help me!

    • TROK TheRealOneKid

      You might want to start from the ground up. Make a complete backup of your iphone in itunes then re-jailbreak. If you dnt want to do that, just uninstall all your tweaks( except for the ones that are needed to make cydia work) then reboot your device

      • Raul M

        Thanks I made a full restore and I jailbroke my iPhone again:D

      • Daniel Diaz

        Hey Raul, is everything working the way it’s supposed to?

      • Dalton

        I would recommend against an iTunes backup if it is stock app problems. An iTunes backup will backup some file system files, so when restoring you just put the problem (messed up lines of code) back into the OS. If if is a stock problem id recommend an iCloud backup/restore as this will only backup essential items

    • Daniel Diaz

      I have the same problem here with my iPhone 4 running iOS 7.0.4. It started happening after I downloaded blutrol hoping it would work even though I knew it probably wouldn’t. After deleting it while on safe mode, i rebooted and tried to open safari to keep researching and it wouldn’t open, along with my mail app and my calculator app. Tried erasing everything in Cydia and nothing. Tried restoring and re-jailbraking and nothing. Everything was fine before the jailbreak until I jailbroke it. Again, no safari no calculator no mail. I’m thinking I either put the problem back on my phone from restoring from my backup, the Blutrol package messed up my phone, or evasi0n has something to do with it. Not exactly sure though since I’m not a developer and I’ve reached the extent of my trouble shooting capabilities. :-/

      • Raul M

        Well how I fixed it was that I put it on DFU mode and iTunes put it in recovery and I just did the full restore and I jailbroke it again. Everything seems to be working perfectly good now:) try doing a full restore

      • Daniel Diaz

        Thank you Raul, I hadn’t tried DFU mode, I will try that now. Thank you very much.

      • Raul M

        It’s works fine now. I just did a full restore putting it on DFU mode first:)

  • Royce Otero


    • TROK TheRealOneKid

      If your referring to the iPhone 5s then dont worry, theres already a jailbreak for it. The evad3rs’ evasi0n7 jailbreak is compatible with it

    • Noaaahh

      Technically, 6th Gen iPhone is the “iPhone 5” 😉

  • Does Springtomize 2 >work< on iOS 7 (I guess not)? Do parts fail or is it unusable?

    • TROK TheRealOneKid

      Its pretty much unusable since there are only two official springtomize packages from bigarella himself. But if you see a springtomize package from insanlyi that says its for all idevices in its description, i wouldnt trust it because its outdated

  • Dat old CleverPin video…iPhoneDownloadblog.com…nostalgia!

  • Fevostone

    Anyone got sleep fx working yet it’s says it iOS 7 compatible..?

    • Leviscus Tempris

      I did! And with no extra hassle ether. I will say that the wake animation did not work

  • MaK™

    Any word on ‘Giffy’ would be nice! the developer hasn’t been on twitter since Feb. of last year.

  • Toon

    this is great springtomize is all we nneed

  • Bob

    Nothing works on iOS7. This jailbreak sucks. Never have I ever been bored so much.

    • ConduciveMammal

      There’s nothing wrong with the jailbreak. Developers just weren’t given any notice about it’s release so were unable to have everything updated ready

    • Paul Meneshian

      Be patient man… “iOS 7 is essentially an entirely new operating system most tweaks need to be re-written from the ground up”

    • Noaaahh

      No one forced you to jailbreak, or even update to iOS 7 – unless if you have newer devices

  • Barry

    This and videopane, and I’m good.

  • e1ghtSpace

    HES ONLY 0.5% DONE!!??!!?? NOOOOOO!!! 🙂

    • Kamran Mackey

      No, he is over 50% done….not 0.5%.

      • Jonathan

        He was being sarcastic..

      • e1ghtSpace

        Jeez, people take everything so seriously these days. I was joking because in the article it says “it’s at least half percent done”. lol

  • Freddy Born

    Is there a black keyboard for iPad air?

  • iPT MSTR


  • Kareem Hendy

    Hi , how to fix it ? Ios 7.0.4 jb

    • Jonathan

      Do you have update killer or something installed? Also, why would you want to update to an iOS that most likely patched the jailbreak?

      • Kareem Hendy

        I dont have update killer ,, i dont want to update i have last fw 7.0.4 but when i check for uptate nothing appear i just ask is it normal after i jb my iphone or something else

      • Noaaahh

        Check for update for what? App Store? Cydia? Please explain! And iOS 7.0.4 is the latest iOS release to the public, so if you’re checking for updates for firmware, you’re already at the highest (which I think you’ve got)

      • Jonathan

        Does it say up to date, keep showing the spiny wheel, or just plain nothing?

      • Kareem Hendy

        Its keep showing the spiny wheel ?

      • Jonathan

        I’m trying it as well now. I’m getting the same thing. I’m not disappointed. I’m not updating unless 7.1 is jailreabkable. Besides, there’s iTunes if you need to update.

      • Kareem Hendy

        Thanks jonathan for ur efforts ,, itunes working thnx

      • Jonathan

        No problem. 🙂

  • Trygve Koren

    I LOVE THIS TWEAK. I remember upgrading just to be able to use Springtomize 2

  • Camui

    I am so excited about this tweak. I love Springtomize 2!
    I am really looking forward to when Springtomize 3 is released!

  • Ninja Banana

    Dude Jailbreak Community is awesome. I cant thank them enough for giving us free iOS 6 and 7 jailbreaks, updating apps when we DEMAND them, and they rarely get thanks. So good work

  • on3simpleclick

    Can’t wait for this tweak to be released. It’s definitely one of my favorites!There’s so many useful things that Springtomize can do. Definitely a must have!

  • DRYN84

    Awesome news!!! This is the one I’m waiting for!!!

  • Definitely sounded like there will be another charge for this. I’m not complaing, just stating the obvious.

  • Freddy Born

    Damn seems to take some weeks 🙁

  • Freddy Born

    Is ther any tweak that gives us mor icons per page or in the dock?

    • Jeremy Chevalier


  • Xee

    Soon a Envasi0n7 jailbreak came out this was the first tweak I wanted. Cant wait.

  • Vergil Ortiz Jr.

    What about Bridge ? That was a very useful tweak

  • Elliwen

    Any news about this wicked tweak? I haven’t heard anything since this post.
