With the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak still not released we thought we would share another small way to customize iOS without it. This time we will be moving applications into the Newsstand folder on the home screen with a simple glitch. Make sure to watch our video as it is easier to do after you see the process being done.

Steps

1. Place Newsstand on the second home screen page.

2. Place the app icons you want to move into it on the third page.

To preform the glitch perform the next three steps in rapid succession

3. Tap home button

4. Hold app icon

5. Your screen will shift to the first page, swipe to the second.

6. You know that you succeeded if you end in wiggle mode on the second page. Open the Newsstand folder and click the home button and the app will move in.

Restarting your device will move all the icons out of the Newsstand, this can be used to fix a mistake or ruin your mod so don’t forget.

    i did it, i placed a folder into newsstand that had 2 games in it, i successfully did it and i tried to open the folder and i crashed my phone, it restarted and it went back to normal but my apps are gone, went to the app store to redownload and it says open, i click open and the app opens as if it is not missing and i double click and the app icon and name pop up so i can choose to stop it but it is no where on my home screens

      @Justin. Go to Settings/General/Reset/Reset home screen layout. This will put all your app icons back to default.

      I said earlier that u can hide apps by doing what u did, and u can open them by searching in the search bar all the way to the left

    Man you need some anger management lessons!

    Easier with the apps and newstand on the 3rd page. That way you can attempt it quicker without passing the newsstand

    I did it and move EVERY APP into Newsstand. Pretty nice!

  • Dushmank

    YOU CAN TAKE IT OUT OF NEWS STAND BY HOLDING THE HOME BUTTON DOWN FOR A FEW SECONDS AS YOU HOLD DOWN THE APP, THEN LET GO OF THE HOME BUTTON. NEWSSTAND WILL CLOSE AND YOU CAN MOVE THE APP TO WHEREVER U WANT

  • Dushmank

    ALso, you can hide apps by doing this same glitch, but with a folder. All of the apps will disappear after your phone reboots, but you can still access them from the search bar

    Newsstand app is useless. Go to Cydia and get NoNewsIsGoodNews to hide it. Then get InifinFolders and have unlimited apps in a folder. Easy, no crashes.
