A number of large springboard customization jailbreak tweaks are paid, and expensive at that, but for those who want a budget option, a new free jailbreak tweak called ReformX by zEstLabs could be just the one you’ve been waiting for.
This tweak provides you all kinds of options for tricking out your Home screen, ranging from the layout of your Home screen icons, to the style of your dock, to the appearance of your folders; the list goes on. Read More

Springtomize 3 is arguably one of the most popular jailbreak tweaks in Cydia today, mostly because of its vast array of customization options for the multiple features throughout iOS.
Despite an iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak having dropped without much warning, the developer maintaining Springtomize 3 has already launched an update with full support for the new jailbreak from Pangu. Read More

The tweak that many of you have been waiting for is almost here. Springtomize 3, the legendary jailbreak tweak originally from Filippo Bigarella, is right around the corner for iOS 9. Earlier today, a copy of the tweak landed in my inbox, and I’ve been testing it out throughout the day and into this evening.
In case you’re not familiar with Springtomize, it’s a tweak that essentially allows you to customize a wide variety of SpringBoard attributes. You can change the size of app icons, change the look of the dock, hide icon labels, and adjust animation speeds. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Read More

Aeternum is a jailbreak tweak that debuted last year, which brought an Apple Watch-inspired interface to the iPhone. Aeternum Hives is a new tweak based on Aeternum that takes the idea to the next level.

It seems like every few months, Elias Limneos steps up to the plate to bring us something awesome. Even during a “jailbreak drought”, such as the one we’re currently experiencing, Limneos doesn’t hesitate to put out a great release.
AquaBoard for iOS 8 is the latest such release, and it is a follow up to previous versions of AquaBoard for iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7. Needless to say, AquaBoard has been around for quite some time, and now, even first time jailbreakers get to taste (or is that drink?) the goodness that is AquaBoard. Read More

One of the reasons why I’ve never been heavily into theme reviews is because of the time it takes to set up the theme and revert my Home screen configuration after testing. Many themes only support certain apps and app icons, hence, it requires a lot of app icon rearranging to aptly show off the theme in question.
I can’t remember where I read the comment, but an iDB commenter mentioned SetBack as a possible solution to my problems. It claims to allow you to restore your SpringBoard layout with ease. Yesterday, I tried SetBack for the first time, and he was right, it is the solution that I needed, and you might like it too. Read More

MultiIconMover+ is the follow-up release to one of the most handy jailbreak tweaks from a purely practical standpoint. The original MultiIconMover provided an easy way to move multiple app icons from one SpringBoard page to another. MultiIconMover+ takes this same concept and adds several new handy features to the mix. Read More

One of the big advantages of the iPhone 6 Plus when compared to the iPhone 6 is the 6 Plus’ ability to rotate into landscape mode while on the SpringBoard. Home screen rotation also works with smaller devices that use upscaling tweaks like LittleBrother or Upscale.
If you’re someone who find the Home screen rotation to be annoying, then you may be interested in disabling the rotation outright. Notate is a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows you to do just that. Have a look inside for all of the details. Read More
