    I have this wallpaper that kinda has a built in dock so was wanting to remove my actual dock. Can I do this without SSH?

    Springtomize can remove your dock. Or you can install a no dock theme for winterboard. There are 2 that I'm aware of and they're spelled "nodock". Not sure if they work on iOS 6 but I can confirm that springtomize works on iOS6. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Bumpy have always stayed away from Springtomize in fear of it draining battery or being a memory hog (since it tweaks so much stuff) but I might take the plunge for it

    I use quite a few tweaks on springtomize 2 and regularly get 8 hours+ usage out of my battery. Nine - ten hours on days when I stream music more than playing games or scrolling through facebook. I don't think it really drains battery at all or hogs memory too much.

    I think it's definitely worth using. And yes, hiding the dock works on iOS 6.

    I don't have any crazy battery drain from springtomize. I don't use every single feature, but I use a lot of them. It's fine. If you combine it with a million packages from Cydia you could have issues but if you install a normal amount of stuff you'll be fine.

    +1 for Springtomize.

    My favorite tweak by far.

    I saw a screen shot and it actually removes the bottom row of icons. I don't want to change the layout or anything just remove the background dock, does it do that? maybe I should try the free option since I won't be using it for nothing else really

    ----------

    Is that a source? Ill try searching that in Cydia

    You can download a transparent dock online and put it in the custom docks folder and use that in the theming section.

    Springtomize does exactly what you want. It removes the dock image. I wouldn't steer you wrong. :D

    Actually, in the dock section if you select hide dock, it will completely remove the dock and you can't even put icons in the dock. If you try and you "force" them, the icons will disappear off screen. Then you have to deselect hide dock and respring to get those icons to reappear. It can scare you at first if you lose an icon, especially an important one like the phone icon lol

    But he can achieve hiding the dock .png by downloading a transparent .png and using it in the theming section as his custom dock.

    I actually use the no dock setting because I have no icons on my screen, but I assume not too many people would really use that feature. More people would rather use the custom dock theming section.

    Settings>springtomize>theming>turn custom dock on>choose no dock

    Like I said, I wouldn't steer you wrong!

    Edit: Or I think you could get a transparent custom dock png and use springtomize to insert it instead of the stock dock but I'm almost positive that'll accomplish the same thing as what I just posted. I like to use springtomize to customize my dock image. There are some really awesome ones out there. Or sometimes ill use a wallpaper with a built in dock and use springtomize to hide my dock so I can use those types of wallpapers. Amazing how versatile springtomize is. Crazy how much stuff it can tweak and theme.

    Edit: I forget to mention something. If you use springtomize to hide your dock like I just explained, make sure you go to the dock section of springtomize and turn off reflections and maybe even shadows. Otherwise your dock will look wired.

    So springtomize came preloaded with a "no dock" for you? I think mine is missing something =/ that's why I mentioned downloading a png on his own, because when I go into the theming section to check, I have no preloaded docks.

    I was just outlining it a little bit. For someone who has never used springtomize, they would probably just go to dock and click hide dock and be scared when their dock icons disappear lol just wanted to make sure he knew he had to use the theming section to accomplish what he wanted.

    Flex is an app (paid) that let's you make your own tweaks and also download and use a large number of tweaks created by others (in the cloud). Check this forum for other threads about Flex.

    Winter board comes with a no dock option. That's what I use. It just removes the dock image.

    Absolutely. I wasn't trying to get into a pissing match lol. I was simply saying a) springtomize can do it and b) I can be a trusted source.

    But yea it comes stock with a no dock option. Just follow my steps to the theming section, make sure to turn Custom Dock "on" and then tap on choose dock, and select NoDock. It comes default. I had it on iOS5 too. Try it out. It's not a bad option. Newbies can have a hard time figuring out how to use png files. This way it's built into springtomize. But you gotta go to the dock section and turn on reflections and shadows too I think otherwise the dock area will look a little weird lol.

    Give it a shot. After you tap on choose dock, you'll see NoDock. Make sure to enable custom dock too othersie it won't work.

    yes download the theme TRANSPARENT DOCK for winterboard app.

    I use it and my dock is transparent but i can still see my icons!

    all the other routes either hide the dock with icons, mess up the springboard icons themselves, or dont actually change the png to something that is transparent!

    i also have made myself a semi transparent status bar to go with it!

    It's actually, "invisible dock" and yes- it works. Using it now so I could add the original iOS3 wallpaper.
