Gridlock updated for iOS 7 and iPhone 5s [Video]


Gridlock, an extremely popular jailbreak tweak has been updated for iOS 7 and iPhone 5s.

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’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 video walkthrough of Gridlock v2.0.5 below:

Gridlock is available for $4.99 on Cydia. If you had purchased Gridlock 2.0.x then you can install the update for free. You can also check out jailbreak tweaks such as HomeScreenDesigner and Iconoclasm that offer similar functionality.

I’m now looking forward to the developer chpwn, releasing an updated version of Zephyr for iOS 7 and iPhone 5s.

    Sounds interesting, but it’s another one of those tweaks that I’d mess around with once or twice and not use again. So there’s no way I’d pay for it.

    I paid but it won’t download; ‘internal server error’

      Kill Cydia from the app switcher. Launch it again, and then try downloading it.

        That worked, many thanks.

    Does anyone know if it works inside folders?

    • Gautam

      Just checked, it doesn’t work in folders. It didn’t do that in the previous version as well.

      • Secretss

        Thank you so much! The icons inside folders were the only thing I wanted to arrange; you just saved me a $2 upgrade ^^,

      • WillEyeAm

        well it doesn’t seem to work inside a folder on ios7, true, but my ios6 phone right next to me ios7 phone does indeed allow free placement within folders. I have FolderEnhancer installed on both phones, but I don’t think that’s the issue as I found a reddit post by the developer of FE ( where he specifies that is not a feature of gridlock. So then, what is allowing me to freely place icons anywhere on the grid inside folders on ios6?

  • Benp

    Doesn’t work on 7.1b3, fwiw.

    • iPhoneHacks

      Don’t expect tweaks to work on beta versions.

      • Benp

        I don’t, but I thought I’d mention it since they sometimes do :)

    Yes zephyr since the day evasion7 was out i been thinking about “zephyr”. Waiting patiently for that

  • Marc Gill

    Home screen designer does the same thing and you can download other peoples templates

    • Mk

      What theme is that?

      • Marc Gill

        The wallpaper i used was a free one off cydia ita a dynamic one. The app layout was made with home sreen designer and the circular apps was made with icon shapes.

        • reggie

          what font is that?

  • Sasha Ricci

    I just tried to download it and it says it’s not supported so I can’t purchase it, but then farther down it says it works on iOS 7 and iPhone 5s?!?!
