Using the tweak is really easy. After installing Cylinder, a dedicated preference pane is added to the Settings app. Here you’ll find a kill-switch, a randomization toggle, and two sections for effects and formulas.

Configure options from Settings → Cylinder and activate effects, formulas, randomize animation, etc. There also an option to Enable the tweak without need to respring your device. To make it even more interesting you can select different animation for each screen. Currently, there are 45 icon effects available.

Moreover, use Formulas to save specific effect combinations and their order of selection. Formulas are basically a fancy way of saying that Cylinder will remember specific effect combinations and their order of selection. Enable favorite formula at any time to display an animation effect combination.
