Ye this wasn't meant to work with WD. We did some things to make it work with the wallpaper tweak tho. Anyway Try to disable those animations from WD settings

I know it wasn't, i was just mentioning the issue to iTechy21. Other than that, works great on WD6 (other than the folder resetting after installing an app)

Haha those animations are very picky anyway, it was never actually meant to be a full feature either, it just ended up looking nice by default so we kept it enabled by default.  It was just a one/two night thing to code just on a whim to get a bunch of math stuff out of my head because I was very bored ;)

Disable it and enjoy these amazing folders on whited00r 7.1 :)


@BetterFolders
Glad you did that to make it work with the wallpaper tweak, thank you :)
Also, I stickied this thread so hopefully people are drawn to it more, so you can get more debug info.

Same to you!  I may attempt to make a folder tweak of my own, just to get it over with in all the lovely logic code that needs to be done in figuring out the icon lists and reversing that, and also getting iOS 7 like folders.  I did try messing with the icons layout a little bit a while back but I just ended up breaking things for the most part  ::)  ;D

Now at the moment I am on stock 3.1.3 for iPhone 3G and thought I may as well give Betterfolders a try.
They are indeed VERY good-looking and smooth. Very nice.
However I'm experiencing a good amount of bugs...

-Sometimes while creating folders and moving apps into a folder an icon will disappear from the folder, or disappear from the springboard entirely, making me reinstall the app to get it back which leads to my next issue:
-Installing any new apps onto the springboard will reset and empty all folders, leaving all apps separate again. The folders will be there, but empty with no apps in them and the names are Folder followed by numbers. After a reboot the correct names return however eventually they dissappear.
-Finally, to exit an app opened in a folder, I have to press the home button twice with about a half second inbetween.

Any ideas guys?

Hey JrPac thanks for the kind words :) appreciate that.

As for the bugs, those are known bugs and some of them are already fixed. But unfortunately we won't be releasing any updates until this fall.
The reason for this is a lack of free time.
This tweak may seem or look simple but it'sa really really huge and complicated one :)

Anyways stay tuned, we have successfully implemented the iOS 7 icon animations  (fast'n'smooth) so that being said the next beta version may have the native iOS 7 look. 

No promises though.
