i want to replace icons like this.
Gridlock (not updated for ios 8) or blank icons
thanks. but its bad if its not working on ios 8.
Gridlock should be updated soon. In the meantime iblank should work.
It probably won't ever be updated. The last update for Gridlock was iOS 6.
I'm on iOS 7.1.2, so I have to use iBlanks too.
Homescreen designer can do this too
Homescreen Designer allows you to design your own layouts fairly easily. I moved to it a while back & prefer it over Iconoclasm.
While I still miss Gridlock from the iOS 5 days, it never worked well on 6 for me, wasn't updated for 7, and the dev is working for Facebook full time now with ZERO mention anywhere that he intends to update it. Don't hold your breath.
I thought the dev released gridlock 2.0 for iOS 7? I could be wrong. I haven't used that tweak since like iOS 4 or 5. Can't remember. Time flies!!
gridlock is NOT being updated. a lot of us are waiting for 'anchor' a possible replacement app.
meanwhile, i use iblanks to customize my page layout...
Is it updated? I'm waiting on Anchor as well. This **** takes so long to update. By the time we get it, it'll need to be updated again.
You're right. I keep forgetting that. Stupid me!
But it does not work on 7.1.2. You can install it fine, but the moment you try to move icons around Springboard crashes.
I think that's where I keep getting tripped up on this.
Ok that makes sense. When using iBlank, what happens when you install an app (or whatever) and it shifts all your icons over by 1. If you have a full page of real icons and blank icons, do you have to manually move all apps on all your pages over 1 spot to put it back? I'm glad I don't bother with home screen designs lol. I always found it so tedious haha. I just install tweaks that make the UX better for me. I don't really bother with aesthetics
You just have to follow Apple's standard everything shifts up and to the left pattern for icon placement when using iBlanks.
For example, my Springboard icons start on the second row. I have a five column set up on my Springboard. So, I have five iBlank icons in the first row which forces the start of my actual app icons to the second row, which is where I want it.
Ah ok thanks. I wasn't sure how that all worked.
No problem Bumps!
If you ever download iBlanks and run it, it's really easy. All you do is tell it to create "X" amount of icons and push the button.
Your phone resprings and you have the exact number of blank icons (transparent) that you requested. If you put the phone in wiggle mode you will see all the "X"s dancing around. You can delete iBlanks in the same way as a normal app. Push on the X.
Just grab them and move them around. Then put your real app icons in the spaces in between.
iblanks is great (i am using it to arrange my homescreen), but a nuisance if you accidentally click on one of the blanks.
homescreendesigner doesn't work (for me, anyway); i don't think it likes customfoldericons.
i hope anchor is real, and happens soon...
