Hack Preview – FCSB (Five-Column SpringBoard)

SettingsWe’ve been tipped off on a pretty sweet hack called FCSB which stands for Five-Column SpringBoard. It pretty much does what it says. What we’ve got is some screenshots and a video. The hack isn’t ready for public release yet but we’ll let you know as soon as it’s stable.

Note: The last screenshot was taken from our test iPhone, seems to be working :)

  1. To cluttered looking. This looks horrible on the iPhone. That would just give me a headache looking at it.

    • If u have a theme that changes the shape of the app then it’s not to cluttered, BRAVO APPLE IPHONE SCHOOL! BRAVO! :)

  2. dang.
    not that bad

  3. Hey that’s cool! Off topic but what’s the name of that theme on the third picture ?

  5. My question is, do we still get the 9 pages on the springboard?

    Good hack if you’ve already filled your 9 pages and need more room.

    • 9 PAGES good lord i cant go over 6 without my phone lagging crashing and sometimes apps just not responding!!! before and after jailbreaking my phone so its not because its jailbroken.

  8. I’ll give it a try once its out just to see how it looks.

    Any info about the pricing/freeness?? :D

  9. 45 more games will fit on iPhone then nice

  10. Wow that just looks amazing!! I have the Vivid theme installed and it’s the only theme I use. In some ways I think it’ll make the icons look cluttered. But I guess if you have a theme that shrinks your app icons like the 3rd picture (what theme is that?) above then it doesn’t look as messy. With my Vivid theme the icons are clear/transparent so it still might look a bit cluttered. But I can’t wait for the release and hear how it works for the guinea pig testers. :P
