Springtomize 5 brings advanced Springboard customization to pwned iOS 13 handsets

Those who’ve been with the jailbreak community for as long as I have should be vividly familiar with the name Springtomize. It’s perhaps one of the most notorious all-in-one jailbreak tweaks ever released, and it’s always receiving updates year after year with support for Apple’s latest and greatest operating system as new jailbreaks find their way into existence. This time around is no different.

iOS developer Janosch Hübner on Sunday released the fifth iteration of Springtomize with formal support for iOS 13. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Springtomize 5 incorporates a plethora of iOS 13-friendly settings that can be used to configure your SpringBoard your own way – as different from everyone else’s as you could ever imagine.

The launch couldn’t have come at a better time since the unc0ver jailbreak was recently updated to support iOS 13.0-13.3 on A12(X)-A13 devices. Notably, the checkra1n jailbreak has enabled iPhone 5s-iPhone X users to jailbreak on iOS 13 for some time now, but the community didn’t feel as complete until just this weekend when newer devices were permitted in on the fun.

Just like previous versions of Springtomize, the fifth iteration brings a plethora of options for various aspects of Apple’s mobile operating system, including:

  • Animations
  • App Switcher
  • Control Center
  • Dock
  • Folders
  • Icons
  • Lock screen
  • Miscellaneous
  • Notification Center
  • Pages
  • Status Bar
  • And more…

All those options can be found in the Settings app after installation:

As you configure the tweak to your liking, you can use the Respring button at the top right of the primary preference pane to save any changes you make.

If that wasn’t enough, you can also save individual profiles of your settings, which lets you hot-swap between different settings schemes on the fly without having to flip a whole bunch of switches. Themers will love this, as it can be used to quickly change the look and behavior of SpringBoard to go along with any theme they might be using:

Springtomize 5 brings a plethora of benefits over its predecessor, including enhancements to color-picking, better battery life and performance, and on-the-fly settings changes with most not even requiring a respring.

Those interested in getting the tweak can purchase it for $4.99 from the Packix repository in their preferred package manager. Only jailbroken iOS 13 devices are supported by Springtomize 5. If you’re using an older version of iOS, then check out an older version of Springtomize to go along with it.
