    Thus far, the creator of 5 column springboard has created a script that can raise the 9 page app limit. It was an accident and he sees it as a "bug" and refuses to develop any further.

    It would be great if a developer can make an app out of that script that could extend the limit properly without the cluttered 5 columns.

    Here's a video from where mine was at 11 or 12 pages:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9RT6VPYRk8

    (its an old video from when I was selling my ipod 1g but you can see that I have more than 9 pages)

    The bug:

    If you have over 144 apps when upgrading from an older version of 5 column springboard it will automatically extend the page limit.

    I've asked the developer to look into it and create a program that can raise it with regular 4 columns but so far he has not been willing. If there are any programmers out there who want to take a shot at it I can show you how it was done.


    --------- Instructions ---------

    You can get the .deb file at: http://r-ch.net/dropbox/fcsb-0.55.deb

    Upload it to the root directory via SFTP, and run 'dpkg -i fcsb-0.55.deb' and
    'killall SpringBoard' as root via SSH to install.

    Then just download the latest version of 5 column springboard from cydia and the page limit is will be raised!

    ---------------------------------

    Programmers: please step up and create a solid cydia app based on this bug!

    Do you really need more than 9 pages of stuff you will not use.

    Only thing you want more then 9 pages is because you can put more cracked stuff on it. Buy your apps and you won't need 9 pages or more.

    You guys do now that there is a great app in Cydia that you can put all of your apps into folders. Its called Categories. It is great to stay organized without having to scroll through pages after pages.

    Personally, I bought an ipod touch for the apps rather than the music. So most of my storage is dedicated to apps and not other stuff. And there are tons of useful apps, there is no reason why apple should limit this number when someone is paying for more than that amount of apps.

    Because they couldn't imagine someone owning more than 9 pages worth of apps.

    i think for themes like inav ist this a very god idea.
    so you can have 12 applications 1 on each site. not only 9.
