Springtomize 3 settings

On the latest episode of Let’s Talk Jailbreak, we discussed our love/hate relationship with the new Springtomize 3 jailbreak tweak. We love all of the customizable options it provides, but we hate a lot of the tiny bugs that came with it.

Well, I’m happy to report that Filippo Bigarella has posted a big update for Springtomize 3 and it appears to squash a lot of these bugs. It also offers other improvements, as well as new features, including no more required re-spring…

For those who aren’t familiar with it, Springtomize 3 is the third iteration of a very popular jailbreak tweak that allows you to customize the Home screen, app switcher, Lock screen, folders, and more. If you’d like, check out our review.

And here’s the change log for the latest update:

Bug fixes and improvements:

  • Icon badges being displayed behind icons when using overflow effect
  • Compatibility with Infinidock (adding dynamic overflow effect).
  • Icon labels briefly reappearing when launching apps
  • Custom number of rows causing icons not to be correctly spaced
  • Custom number of rows not applying in folders
  • Updated localizations
  • Screen blinking right after being turned off
  • Custom carrier not working on iPod touch/iPad

What’s new:

  • No need to respring anymore (almost) all the settings. See changes in real time!
  • Added a “Reset” button to each section, to quickly reset all its settings to their default values
  • Adjust the space between icon columns/rows in pages and folders
  • Adjust the side insect of icons in pages, folders and in the dock
  • Icon image transparency
  • Turkish localization

Of course, the update is available for free to all existing Springtomize 3 owners, just check the Changes tab in Cydia. For non-owners, the tweak is in the BigBoss repo and is either free, $1.99, or $2.99 depending on if you owned Springtomize 2.

  • Infinidock still fails to load multiple docks when using Springtomize 3. I’m not sure it’s a bug on which side though…

    No respiring is cool.
    That you have to set the spacing between the icons manually now is not; i use 5 icons in a row, and after the update they where all crammed together (screenshot). I then had to set the “side inset” lower (0.30) than the default value of 1 (applied to the dock in the screenshot). It took a little time to figure this out, and it is difficult to set the slider to a specific value (you need to do this, if you want the pages and dock icons to lign-up).
    Also if you change the icon badge color, the circle still looks rough around the edges – maybe the dev. will correct this later.
    This is a steep back for me. Still loving the tweak though 🙂

    • Re: difficulty in setting sliders to specific value

      I hear you, friend. I’ve found a way to lock the slider at a specific value by holding onto the knob at that value and then locking your device. Lift your finger and unlock and tada!

      However this only works for sliders with ranges that allow your finger to even get to the value you want. I’ve come across a slider with a range of 2500 and no matter how precisely I try to move my finger or stylus the value will just jump from 1996 to 2002 and never hit 2000.

        here is the place to post your comment about the article, and yes for me this tweak is boring like hell, if you dont like my opinion, its ok i dont care … simple

  • M_thoroughbred

    I don’t see the update in cydia.

  • Gary Chong

    This update does not work with InvisibleFolders. It will be a nice feature to make folder icons invisible.

    In the video, the iPhone resprings so fast every time when the setting are changed. how can it be? is there any tweak for this to speed up the Respring? ps: notice the respring blurred effect? a new tweak?

    • Prasoon Singh

      He must have cut the part every time he resprings. And I see the blurred effect when I respsring.

  • Mickysense

    in the video the iphone resprings so fast every time when the setting are changed. is there any tweaks working for this? and how about that blurred effect?

    • Jonathan

      When you hit the respring button in Springtomize, it will do the blur effect. Now whenever you respring not through Springtomize 3, it won’t do the blur effect, only in Springtomize.
      As for the respring, he probably speeds it up. However, I do notice when I respring through Springtomize vs. other tweaks or ways, it’s a little faster.

  • Prasoon Singh

    Just bought Springtomize 3 and I love it so far!

  • Aleandro green

    anyone else not able to hide icon labels? ive bigify and spring3 but neither them will hide the labels. i have been able to remove labels from folder icons and my dock which makes no sense

    • Jonathan

      Winterboard has the option. No docked/undocked icons.

  • Garrett

    There used to be a section where you could change the color of the font, I want that in Springotomize 3 🙁

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      You used to be able to change fonts as well to any system font…

      There’s lots of things missing at the moment but I’m sure Filippo is trying his hardest to get everything included…

  • Jhonny Lennon

    side insect? lol

  • Feby Kristianto

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

  • Albert

    Why aren’t folder icons invisible?

  • Tim smith

    Does anyone know how to get the respring effect springtomize has? It blurs when you hit restoring to put certain settings into effect

    • appl3h4ck3r

      no but that is really cool and im with you on wanting that *thumbs up*

  • appl3h4ck3r

    made my whole UI weird…kinda stomps on other tweaks I have installed -_-

    • Smooth75

      Mine too… Changed the color in the dock, folders, and unlock screen. Dock . Very black and white. Don’t know how to switch it back…. Guess I may have to restore.

      • appl3h4ck3r

        my dock is no black when I have it enabled and other subtle things. I wish I knew what was going on

  • Influens

    Why go icons within folders shrink then jump up to required size, is this a known bug or just me

  • RobDigital413

    How come no one mentioned the fact that Time Machine is not a feature….best feature if Springtomizer.

  • So, to get the “no-respring required” enhancement on iOS 6, you need to purchase Springtomize 3?

  • Mongia Kingofnothing

    Just uninstalled!
    It gave me several problems: blinking screen, automatic and unmotivated resprings, badge app numbers not updated, unflowing animations, ecc…
    Just 2.99 f**ckin’ $ goin’ down the drain.
