IconRotator: Rotate Springboard Icons Based on iPhone’s Orientation [Jailbreak Tweak]

While Cydia does have a lot of apps and tweaks that are incredibly useful, once in a while, we come across a tweak that is more along the lines of "cool" rather than being useful. A good example of such a jailbreak app is Graviboard. Sure it doesn't add any useful feature or make the user experience better but it sure add something cool that makes you want to show off to your friends. Now we have such a tweak for you today.

IconRotator Jailbreak Tweak
The jailbreak tweak that we have for you today is called IconRotator by famous third party developer Ryan Petrich. Basically, what this tweak does is that it rotates your Springboard icons depending on the way you hold your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. You can rotate your icons sideways and even upside down. The nice thing about this tweak is that it doesn't change the orientation of the swiping mechanics, so you will always need to swipe in the default direction, which is good because it makes things nice and simple. The tweak even works inside folders too which is definitely a nice touch.
IconRotator Jailbreak Tweak
The tweak itself doesn't have any settings to tinker with. You just need to install the tweak and respring your device and it should work. While it is certainly not the most useful tweak, it does add a very cool effect on your Springboard. The transition animation is very smooth and it almost feels like a native feature. IconRotator is not available through the default repos but you can download it for FREE by adding this repo:

To download and install IconRotator, you must will need a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Lucky for you, we have the tutorials that you need. For iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users, you will need to download the Absinthe Jailbreak Tool and follow these tutorials: To jailbreak your iDevice on Mac using Absinthe, refer to our Jailbreak iPhone 4S Guide for Mac or for Windows users, you can read our Jailbreak iPhone 4S Guide for Windows. As for the rest of the devices (A4), you can use our iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak guide. [via iDownloadBlog]

    Awesome! Hi Admin, can you please tell me that i’ve iphone 4g 32GB factory unlocked with ios 5.0.1 and if i jailbreak it for cydia it will be locked or not?

      If you are currently factory unlocked, there is no need to worry about messing up your device like getting it locked after a jailbreak. An untethered solution is now available so I’d say go for it, you can always restore to iOS 5.0.1 if you don’t like it.
