Jailbreak and Cydia Tweak developer chpwn has now released 2.0 updates for Infinidock, Infiniboard, and Infinifolders. The 2.0 update for the Infiniapps includes entirely redesigned code as well as further support for iOS 5 and newly added support for iOS 6 Jailbreak. If you are running the Tethered iOS 6 Jailbreak, you may now download the popular Cydia Tweaks in the the Cydia Store with the fresh update.
chpwn mentioned in his blog that the Cydia Tweaks were all built within one week back in January 2010 and written in code that was supported then. The 2.0 updates are all rewritten from scratch to support further updates in the future. The developer stated that the code was difficult to update instantly for iOS 6 Jailbreak support since it was out of date, but now it will be no problem.
Blog entry via chpwn:
"And so today I’m releasing new versions of all of the Infiniapps, rebuilt from the ground up for iOS 5 and iOS 6. But while the core is brand new, all of your favorite features, settings, and purchases are still there, and everything should seamlessly carry over into the new versions. I also added a few new features — scrollbars and bouncing settings are now an option in Infinidock, for example — and new features should be much easier to add in the future.
Another big focus was fixing a number of longstanding bugs, for both stability and performance. Also gone is a little secret I’ll let you in on: until now, the Infiniapps were never really unlimited. There’s always been a hidden cap (for performance reasons), somewhere between 50 and 200 icons. With the new architecture, though, performance is barely affected by the number of icons, and I’ve made it truly unlimited. Compatibility with other extensions should also be better; Gridlock, for example, now works without any special support or cooperation from my other extensions."
Infinidock is a Cydia Tweak that will allow Jailbreak users to add an unlimited amount of app icons to the iOS dock and scroll to pick the app they would like to open. Infiniboard brings back old Jailbreak days from version iOS 1.0, give Jailbreak users the ability to add app icons vertically, instead of horizontally. Finally, Infinifolders is a VERY useful Jailbreak Tweak if you have a lot of apps and they don’t fit into folders, giving users the ability to add unlimited apps into a single folder.
chpwn went on to say that he is working on updating and rewriting the Gridlock Cydia Tweak, which allows users to add icons anywhere on the Springboard, even if there’s a gap. All of these Jailbreak Cydia Tweaks can now be found in the Cydia Store at different price points.
