    Hey, my jailbroken 4S on iOS 6.1 wants customizeable Folder Icons ;)
    Beautifolders and Foldericons don´t work on iOS 6, please provide me a tip for an alternative Tweak!
    Greetings

    I'd be interested in this as well. Tis the last tweak I'd like to apply to my 4S.

    FolderEnhancer or Infinifolders both work fine.

    But FolderEnhancer doesn't do what FolderIcons does.....which is replace the 'folder' look with a specific icon. Makes homescreens with a bunch of folders (mine) look SO much better. Can't wait for Foldericons to be updated.

    (for those who don't know, FolderIcons causes immediate crash to safe mode when activated right now).

    Good to see that it isn't just me. I was just coming to post about the same problem. Will delete and wait it out.

    Any other ideas for foldericon replacment tweaks? Does Beautifolders do the same thing?

    According to OP Beautifolders doesn't work :(

    I hope FolderIcons gets updated, or some alternative gets made. It's a tweak I am sure a lot of us would be willing to pay for..

    This is a huge one for me, also.

    I'm sad enough to check and search every day.

    If you guys don't mind creating a theme and using it with Winterboard or manually changing the folder icon then maybe someone can tell you the name of the image and you can do it yourselves. You can ask in this thread Post your Jailbroken Home Screen (Part 5, new JB)

    Hey 3bs, I think that's actually the problem... and hence the demand for FolderIcons to return...

    Don't shoot me down if I've misunderstood you here (I'm definitely the thick one), but...

    whereas changing up the theme as you suggest by any method/tweak which allows for changing/swapping-up App icons by using some nice custom images etc and some other tweaks allow tinkering a little with the appearance of the folders somewhat... there is nothing else (to my knowledge) that flat-out replaces folders with a single icon in the home screen so they take on the appearance of an app, almost.

    To some users (myself included), those folders with the miniature icons cluttered inside an open square look messy, and FolderIcons puts a neat single image there, just as you would have for an app.

    Again, if I've overlooked your point and been a moron, I do apologise.

    Somebody's got to make a new FolderIcons, surely?

    You must be new to the JB theming world! ;) It is not possible to use Winterboard to replace folder icons (yet). FolderIcons is the only app that allowed us to do it.

    I emailed the developer few days ago but I haven't heard from him yet.
