    If only it was available for Mac. I uninstalled windows parallels and it takes 1-2 hours to reinstall, and it's way too laggy to use anyways.

    I think the TaiG team generally uses Windows machines, which would explain the wait on a Mac version.

    I did an iOS update, ran the new jailbreak, and installed my jailbreak tweaks. No restoring from backup. Only took a few minutes and I'm good to go.

    None to my knowledge besides 8.1.2 compatibility.

    afc2add (TaiG AFC2) now shows up on the installed list and therefore is easier to remove if you don't want full access to the file system via USB to be enabled. It's a security risk since it isn't password-protected so some people prefer to uninstall it and use OpenSSH instead (after changing the default root password).

    Aside from that, they don't typically add features to new jailbreaks. It's really just a matter of making them available to us. The features and bug fixes are in the iOS updates. We just need the jailbreaks to be updated to work with them, or new jailbreaks altogher if the exploits are closed, so we can install the iOS updates and keep up to date.

    Did the update then ran TAIG in Parallels, worked like a charm. 15 minutes max.

    I like the fact that the TaiG Untether is now a file that shows up in your installed tweak list in Cydia.

    I noticed yesterday that Shrink was updated for IOS8. I downloaded it but after, I realized that Springtomize does everything that shrink can do. One thing I did was change the color of my text under my icons with Shrink. It was after I did this that I noticed a customize text setting in Springtomize. I tried changing it there but Shrink superseded the Springtomize setting. Now if only Springtomize had the scrolling dock like Infinidock, it would be "almost" the only tweak I need on my phone.

    Does anyone use a five icon dock? I don't like that the first and last app label goes off the screen.

    I just turned my dock labels back on and they're fine. I use BetterFiveIconDock.

    I have that as well but I'm wondering if having that and Springtomize could be the issue.

    No. But why don't you just disable the labels? That's one of the first things I do when I jailbreak. You know what apps are in your dock and won't forget what they are.

    You can disable the dock labels while keeping the home screen labels.

    Springtomize gives me a few issues so I don't use it. It tries to do too much, in my opinion.

    And right now it's not working fully. However, I want the cool dock cover flow.

    I don't know what you think, but it just looks odd to me.
