I finally upgraded from iOS 5.0.1 to iOS 6.1.2 and jailbroke my device using evasi0n. While I'm happy about being all caught up and ready for the iOS 6.1.3 patch, I was also disappointed to learn Apple changed how icon movement works. This means tweaks such as AlwaysArrange have been rendered useless on iOS 6. However, themers will be hapy to know jailbreak developer chpwn has updated the very popular jailbreak tweak Gridlock with iOS 6 support.
Gridlock 2.0 allows you to place your app icons anywhere on your Home screen without other apps replacing them. This gives you the ability to create different patterns, or to show off your wallpaper by moving apps out of the way. Gridlock 2.0 is much better than using blank icons or hiding apps with other jailbreak tweaks.
AlwaysArrange is a simple jailbreak tweak that allows you to easily rearrange your Home screen icons without having to enter wiggle mode. Once installed you can tap any icon and move it anywhere on your Home screen. There is a Settings mode that allows you to toggle AlwaysArrange on and off, and you can also adjust the duration of the tap and hold time that it takes to move an app. To delete an app just tap the icon and slide it up to the status bar to enter wiggle mode.
