IconSupport is a library that helps icon-layout-modifying tweaks play nicely together.

This library supports up to iOS 11 and is no longer maintained.

Quoted from its depiction:

IconSupport is a package for use by extensions that modify how SpringBoard lays-out icons (such as extensions that change the number of icons shown per row/column).

Normally, syncing with iTunes or booting into Mobile Substrate's Safe Mode would cause these modified layouts to be reset; IconSupport prevents this.

IconSupport also handles repairing layouts when installing and uninstalling IconSupport-enabled extensions.

Quoted from the README of its source on GitHub:

Uses a unique ID for each combination of packages, so icon state is never lost via respring or uninstalling a new package.
