Use Cuboid, the free jailbreak tweak, allowing you to manage the home screen layout. When you will start to modify the icon layout on your iOS device you will never go back to default settings. Download Cuboid from official Cydia Repositories and set the icon layout on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

What is Cuboid?

Cuboid is a lightweight home screen layout manager fro your jailbroken device. It offers similar features that you can find in Boxy for free. Set a number of home screen columns and rows, hide icon labels, change vertical and horizontal padding, define new offset, etc.

Cuboid is a free Boxy alternative jailbreak tweak working with iOS 11 and iOS 12. Alternatively, you can also install HomePlus tweak that is one of the best free icon layout managers for iOS 13.
