While there have been myriad hacks on how to shrink five icons in a single row on iPhone’s screen but all of them were rendered incompatible by the new iOS 5. Fortunately, the developer community is very active and they have come up with an app called Shrink.
This allows you to downscale the icons so that you can fit more icons in one row. Another nice feature about this app is that there is no need to respring the iPhone as the settings take effect immediately.
This jailbreak tweak is compatible with WinterBoard, Iconoclasm, FolderEnhancer, Infinidock, WeatherIcon, and Backgrounder. You can download it for free by searching ‘Shrink’ in Cydia (bigboss repo).
