    Those of you looking to pack more icons per square inch on your home screen may have tried a tweak called CustomGrid in the past. The developer of CustomGrid, Adrian Hamelik, has just launched CustomGrid 2 (iOS 6+) with support for iOS 6. The tweak has been re-written and includes a lot of new features. CustomGrid is, in many ways, a direct competitor with More Icons.

    CustomGrid 2 lets you control the amount of applications per row and per column on your home screen, in your folders, on your dock, and in your App Switcher. In addition, you'll be able to select the spacing in between applications, hide or show application icon labels, and enjoy your themes more than ever with these awesome layout options:



    After changing any of your options, you can tap on the respring button at the bottom of the preferences pane to save your changes. CustomGrid 2 (iOS 6+) is 99 in the BigBoss repository, however existing owners of the original CustomGrid can download the new version for free.

    In addition to CustomGrid 2, Adrian has also released MultiDock, a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows the user to modify the amount of icons in the dock:



    MultiDock will not just stuff all the applications on the small glass dock at the bottom of the display, rather, multiple rows of application icons can be made to stick onto to the display as you page through your home screen pages. This is a great feature for those that can never decide what four applications to put on the dock because they love so many of their applications. The tweak is also fully compatible with CustomGrid 2, so you can create the perfect layout for yourself.

    From the MultiDock preferences pane, you'll be able to easily enable and disable the tweak on demand, choose the number of rows and icons per row, and then respring to save your changes:


    MultiDock is available in the BigBoss repository of Cydia for $1.99.

    Both tweaks are completely compatible with iOS 6, with each other, and can be installed on iPhones, iPod touches, or iPads!

    This tweak is not compatible with FolderEnhancer. As per the developer of Folder Enhancer, his tweak does not work well with certain layouts for Iconoclasm. I tested it with CustomGrid 2 with a 3 X 3 layout and again, instant safe mode. For those of you interested in purchasing, be weary of this!!!

    Using custom grid and iconoclasm together I would expect a crash. They both do very similar things. I don't understand why you would want to use them together anyway.

    Also, all the options in customgrid2 reside in sprintomize2. This is a redundant tweak IMO.

    If u install this it will delete iconoclasm so u wont have both anyways. I just wonder which one works better.

    Multidock in my opinion is just stupid. Makes no sense at all

    thanks for the info but why do you still need to use iconoclasm if already using this tweak...

    This tweak doesn't work well with a lot of Cydia staff. Its putting my iPhone 5 in safe mode always. I had to uninstall.

    Guys, I did not install both CustomGrid and Iconoclasm. I was saying that CustomGrid does not work with certain layouts if you have FolderEnhancer installed. FolderEnhancer also does not work with those same icon layouts in Iconoclasm or Springtomize 2. Letting you know that CustomGrid and FolderEnhancer don't play nice.

    Is CustomGrid a replacement for Gridlock?

    No. CustomGrid is a More Icons competitor.

    Gridlock lets you put applications anywhere in the grid you want them to be. CustomGrid lets you adjust the amount of rows and columns of apps.

    I actually like the multidock idea and reached out the developer to see if it was compatible with inifinidock but is not currently. Although its not compatible currently he was looking at it. My thought around that is that what if a theme could be made using multiple levels of the dock that is similar to a NAV theme. So instead of using all the screen real estate with icons you could have separate docks for your categories of apps. Just a thought.
