There are a lot of jailbreak tweaks allowing you to modify not only the dock style but also available features on iOS devices. Docky created by Nepeta is an open-source dock customizer for iPhone that is a great Infinidock replacement. Download Docky tweak from official Cydia Repository for free.
What is Docky tweak?
Docky is a free jailbreak tweak allowing you to customize the dock, activate double dock, expandable dock, infinite dock, and background transparency. There are two dock styles available including iPhone X style (on older iPhones) or old iPhone style (on iPhone X and similar).
Double mode displays always two rows of apps icons in the iPhone dock, Expendable mode shows two rows when swiped up, and Infinity mode offers basically Infinidock features. If you remember the classic Infinidock extension by chpwn you will also appreciate Docky.
iPhone dock is an excellent place to display the most frequently used apps. By default, iOS 12 shows only four app shortcuts, but installing a free jailbreak tweak like Docky the possibilities are limitless. The screenshot above shows you the look you can achieve enabling the tweak.
After installation, you can configure the Dock behavior from the new preference pane that is added to the Settings app. Activate in the dock five icons instead of four or respring your iPhone (no support for iPads). Toggle Docky on or off on demand. This package is compatible with arm64e (A12) devices.
The tweak is not compatible with FloatyDock and FloatingDock tweaks. If you use them the apps will be automatically removed from the system when you install Docky.
Since Nepeta left the jailbreak community new versions of tweaks are no more released by this developer. Recently another developer hidden by Kritanta name is releasing updates of Nepeta's tweaks allowing you to run them on the latest version of iOS 13, now also Docky tweak.
