In an announcement post shared to /r/jailbreak on Monday, Lizynz said that FolderX was a continuation of their popular FullFolder jailbreak tweak from the 2015-2019 era. They also mentioned how FolderX was both rootful and rootless supported on both the palera1n and Fugu15 Max jailbreaks on all firmware versions from iOS & iPadOS 15.x to 16.x.

With FolderX, you can do a lot of different things to make your folders different from stock, as shown above. Just some of the things you can do to customize them are: customize the title, customize the layout grid, customize gestures, enable quick access to settings, enjoy an app counter, and color and stylize folders to your liking.

Once installed, you can swipe up while inside of any folder to summon options that you can configure to your liking:
