Highlighting this

19 posts in this topic

Since the recent splitting of this forum into sub-forums, many topics are going unnoticed. But this I feel is worthy of highlighting.

There's a thread on the modding forum about a new extraction of the Xperia Z Launcher (http://www.modaco.com/topic/362156-2-versions-of-the-xperia-launcher-and-widgets/#entry2117238)

Now, this launcher seems to be just about the fastest I have ever seen on my g300, and it has all the features that the premium versions of Apex, Nova, ADW etc have. I converted mine into a system app and it's even faster still.

I've put a copy of the apk on dropbox for quick access from your phone directly here - I take no credit, credit goes to Redflake, the poster of the original thread, for his find, and the guys at XDA for their work.

This is just a normal install. I used ROM Toolbox to convert to a system app - that's a simple, automated way, there are other manual ways, or search google play for "/system/app/mover"

Delete the old one of what? If you've already got the xperia launcher, yes, of course... but installing this apk will not make it a system app. It doesn't really matter - just install it, see if you like it.

I usually uninstall launchers I don't want using an app uninstaller - I tend to use ROM Toolbox - but you don't have to, and you don't have to convert this to a system app. Android recognizes it as a launcher when it's installed, so you can leave it as it is.

Long press on the icon and select remove, or drag it to the bin.

Worked for me. Try press and hold, and dragging it out of the dock? I personally don't use the dock, I turn it off. And I only use a single home screen. Boring, I know.

I converted this to a system app as well. I just installed the Launcher then, using Root Explorer, "moved" the apk to the system / app folder and pasted it there.. Then just restart and android will "upgrade".

Check out this link: http://www.droidiser...ystem-apps.html

Several different ways of making system apps.Scroll down until you find the app you want to use ie "Root Explorer".

When done restart.

Why don't you just try out the launcher first for a while, make sure you're happy with it? It will run perfectly fine without making it a system app.

Internal SD card:

Should be in: data/ app.

Then paste it in the system / app.

Set permissions etc after pasting.
