Gridlock 2.0 Brings iOS 6 Support


Gridlock, an extremely popular jailbreak tweak has finally been updated for iOS 6 and iPhone 5.

Gridlock allows you to arrange app icons on the Home screen wherever you want. You no longer need to use blank icons with the ugly shadows to achieve it.

It allows you to create an awesome pattern with the app icons on the Home screen.

It’s extremely easy to use, all you need to do is tap and hold down an icon to make the apps jiggle like you would do and then move them around anywhere you want.

It doesn’t add any configuration options in the Settings app, just tap and drag wherever you want.

You can check out the brief video of Gridlock 2.0 in action below:

Unfortunately, Gridlock 2.0 won’t be free for existing users as Grant Paul aka chpwn, developer of the jailbreak tweak has said that it needed a lot of work and had to be completely rewritten for iOS 6 as Apple has changed the way icon movement works.

Existing users will be able to upgrade to Gridlock 2.0 for $1.99, whereas new users will have to pay $4.99 for it. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. You can click on the direct download Cydia link below on your jailbroken iOS device to purchase and install it.

    • iPhoneHacks

    why isnt this a upgrade and not a new package to BUY

    • iPhoneHacks

      Gridlock 2.0 is a new package. The older one is now called Gridlock Legacy.

  • Alan

    Why should we have to pay for the update? Does it add new functionality? Wouldn’t he have updated it to ensure people buy it for their iOS 6 devices?

    Sorry I don’t get it. I love the tweak and I will pay the upgrade fee, but chpwn has just let me down.

    • Rounak Jain

      I think it’s more to do with the effort he put in.

      • Damian W

        yeah, but after all the tweak does not really offer anything special. Just moving icons from one grid to another. I will pass and not put 5 dollars into this dead end tweak. I prefer to use iconoclasm ($3) or CustomGrid 2 ($1) and MoreIcons ($2 or 3).

  • genXhippie

    Iconoclasm.basically offers the same features at the cost of $3. Whereas, Gridlock 2.0 cost $5? :/

  • Astig_808

    its kinda pricey dont u think

  • drcrazy

    BTW, which theme is it?.. it’s very nice.

    • iPhoneHacks

      The theme is ayecon. It’s a Winterboard theme.

    Just updated. $1.99 Love it! iPhone 4S, iOS 6.x
    Really, people complaining about $1.99 to upgrade? Please get some perspective. This is a valuable tweak, if you agree buy it. If you don’t then don’t. Thanks.

    Sweet, now I can install the HTC Animated Weather widget on my home screen like I had on IOS 5!

  • Tyler H.

    What a bunch of bullshit, doesn’t even let you put them wherever you want. Very misleading reading on the Cydia store

    • Tyler H.

      And I deleted Iconoclasm for this.. Time to reinstall
