Springtomize 3 Dark Background Folders

Springtomize 3 has received a critical update for those wishing to properly use the tweak on iOS 7.1.x jailbroken devices. The update, which is free for previous purchasers of Springtomize 3, is now available for download from Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

For those of you unfamiliar with Springtomize, this is a tweak that essentially allows you to customize the look of the Home screen to an insane degree. It’s many tweaks rolled into one good-looking and generally reliable package, and it’s what its developer, Filippo Bigarella, is primarily known for.

I’ve downloaded the Springtomize 3 iOS 7.1.x update and have been playing around with it all day. I can report that the tweak works as expected, and it brings quite a few bug fixes to the table. You’ll also be interested to know that this update brings with it a brand new feature—a dark background for folders. Check out the details after the break.

The update is largely geared towards stamping out bugs to ensure full compatibility with iOS 7.1.x. Longtime users of Springtomize 3 probably won’t see many notable differences, but there is, as mentioned, one new feature thrown into the mix.

Springtomize 3 7.1.x changelog

The Springtomize 3 iOS 7.1.x update is ready for download on the BigBoss repo. New users will need to shell out $2.99 to join the fun. As mentioned, prior users can enjoy the update for free.

  • Tim Red Beard

    It’s still not working properly on 7.1.1 with Pangu jailbreak. Hide Dock Background not working, transparent folders not work as well as more. I’ve had to get rid of it until it’s fully working again. Kinda sucks. But I am very grateful to Filippo for all his work. Just wish it was complete.

    • LuaskanKuasamu

      My iphone is on 7.1.1 with pangu jailbreak and springtomize 3, everything works fine including transparent folders and hide dock bg.

      Perhaps the problem is on your side. Uninstall some redundant tweaks and use only springtomize.

      • Tim Red Beard

        It’s the only tweak installed, and still doesn’t work properly. I’m thinking it’s some remnant of a previous tweak from my backup. I just did a fresh install and didn’t restore and it’s working. I have to do some digging via iFile to erase some leftover files.

      • Ricky Moody

        Could you tell me what and where you will be deleting?

  • El Matador

    Tweaks such as this is jailbreaking at its finest!

  • Chris

    The update has restored all the broken features for me such as hiding Newsstand, status bar icons and even changing the folder background to a darker shade of grey which makes folders more appealing.

    A big thanks needs to go out to Filippo for the work he has put into it.

  • WaterTrooper

    This Dev is one of the bests!

  • Mark

    It won’t let me change the icon size back to where I had them

  • Dante Arellano

    Fuckk this shite totally stupid!!

  • Ali

    I wish it could maximize the folder view and make it like iOS 6 folders (Remove borders). I think I have seen a tweak with that functionality, just don’t remember the name anymore. If anyone knows, please let me know!

    • disqusted

      I tried to look this tweak up for you. Try “FullFolder”. It’s free but I don’t know if it’ll do what you’re looking for or not but I tried!

      • Ali

        I had found it before, but lost track of it. That is what I was searching for! Thank you!

      • disqusted

        Cool. Glad that was it.

      • Ali

        The Tweak is very incomplete though. I think that is why I removed it last time too. Can’t get in touch with the creator. Thank though.

  • Veronika

    Hello, it is possible make backup/restore of settings for Springtomize 3? Thank you

    • Xee

      Don’t know, but I restored 7.0.4 then upgraded to to 7.1.2 then restored backup from iCloud and then jailbreaked with Pangu 1.1.0. Installed Springtomize 3 and it remembered all my old Springtomize settings.

      • Veronika

        Thank you for reply, what device you use by the way?

      • Xee

        iPhone 5.

      • Veronika

        Ok, thanks. I have iPhone 5s and 7.0.4, and I am not sure if I should make update to 7.1.2 or not.

      • disqusted

        This is one of the major features that was left out from v2→ v3. Wish it was back again, the backup and restore options. I like how it saved the icon layout and stuff so if my phone crashed and my icons went a wacky I could just fix it using that really fast.

  • Giacomo Castellucci

    Am I the only who thinks springtomize for ios 7 is buggy as sh*t and pretty much useless ??

    • Dan

      yes you are

      • Giacomo Castellucci

        I was waiting for this reply ahahahah
        By the way, please tell me why you find it so necessary

      • Dan

        It’s not necessary, no tweak is. I was simply saying that it is not useless nor buggy as sh*t.

        I find it extremely useful since it allows me to customize my phone, which is why I jailbreak. I prefer one tweak that has several features over several singular tweaks, it reduces the chances of compatability issues.

  • Aqeel Ahmed

    still ‘Time style show with seconds’ on Lock screen is not working properly

  • Zapatista

    Other settings not working.

    • Hak

      If you restored from a backup find the old Springtomize 3 files (don’t know where they are) and delete them.

  • Mads Teland

    If you can’t use the Dark Background for Folders since it’s only iOS 7.1.X feature, you can try instead DarkFolders.

    • Gennaro

      Is anyone else having problems with dock coverflow? It used to work before the update. Now it doesnt work.

      • Todd Sorensen

        Just tried it. It is working for me.

  • Cristóbal Contreras

    Coverflow doesn’t work for me

    • Zapatista

      Same here coverflow not working.whew!

      • Cristóbal Contreras

        I reinstalled and it worked well…try reinstalling the tweak

      • Gennaro

        Still not working :/

  • Fevostone

    I don’t think the tweak is that good I bought it and I never really use it that much

  • Jake Rogers

    Not perfectly relevant, but should I upgrade from iOS 7.1 Beta 3 to 7.1.2 and jailbreak? I heard pangu used an enterprise certificate glitch that requires you to change the time and stuff. I an wondering if I should wait for an iOS 8 jailbreak but evasi0n or if it is safe enough to use pangu. I am not worried about a trojan or anything, just that apple can fix something server side and screw me up or that I will have any future issues stemming from the date thing. Help?

    • John

      Updating is up to you, but no, the jailbreak cannot be undone by anything on Apple’s side without a new firmware install by you, (Which you would stay away from.)

  • Natalia Horta

    Cover flow isn’t working at all, is anyone else having this problem?

  • Mr Jack

    I have never heard of this until now and i am loving it. I am on 7.1.1 pangu and can finally remove that damned grey area from my dock! Thank you so much for this app lol the customize options are amazing!

  • Da Ouss

    Does anyone else noticed battery draining withe this update?

    • auditore

      Same here.
