There have been very few iOS glitches discovered lately that allow you do things on your non-Jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad that you shouldn’t. Today another one of these glitches was discovered, this time by AppAdvice, and it is sure to please a lot of people who refrain from Jailbreaking.
This particular glitch actually allows you to add spaces between apps on the homescreen, essentially granting you functionality of tweaks like GridLock on non-Jailbroken devices. AppAdvice stated “[the method for performing the glitch] is pretty interesting and we were amazed upon discovering it. At first, it took a while to figure out how to duplicate the results, but we’ve put together a method that’s very straight forward.”
They have tested it on all iOS devices running iOS 6 and higher and it works without hiccups. The process isn’t very complicated, but it is a little long. It is probably best explained in their video overview that you can watch below.
It’s a pretty cool trick,huh?
You are able to repeat the process as many times as you like to create a desired layout. The blank spaces that you create work just like apps and you can adjust its location by repositioning apps around it.
One thing to keep in mind with this little trick is that once you have used an app to create a space, it will not be allowed back on that homescreen page. If you perform the trick with the Calculator app on the first homescreen page, for example, it will not be allowed back on the first homescreen page. As such, make sure you use apps you don’t want to appear on the page you perform the trick on. And like most of these iOS glitches, rebooting your device will cause the layout to return back to normal.

Actually, I found that you can get your apps back to the main homescreen. Just put it in wiggle mode and add it to a folder, then take it out and you should be able to move it back.
