XMarshmallow Launcher
By Team X
Sony's Marshmallow Home

What Is Xmarshmallow?
Xmarshmallow Home aka Xperia Marshmallow Home is a modded Xperia home for non rooted users. I felt that using the name 'Modded Xperia Home' is kinda common nowadays, so I decided to name it 'Xmarshmallow'.
Please Keep in mind that this is no new launcher made by me, it's just the official Xperia Home from marshmallow firmware modded to make it work for non rooted. It couldn't be possible to make this happen without the valuable contribution and inspiration of Sir @Dadovvv, @Brandon Nel and Sir @jjwrongjj.
Sir @Ambor is also a noticable name in this work
He is a professional themer And his themes are just awesome. So be sure you check them out.
It has been ported from Marshmallow to Lollipop for Non Rooted users and included some modifications in terms of visual of my own and made it supported for Playstore icons. Sony stock Marshmallow Launcher supports only some icons which are specially for them.
Please Don't tell me to add new features to it. Only original developer of the launcher can do it....that is SONY. So ask SONY

Installation Method:
√ Download the version of your choice
√ Install and Enjoy

Please Note :
For a clean installation to ensure no not installed errors, always uninstall the previous versions of the same

Issues :
Since many of the Sony's components depends upon the original package name.. Many features are excluded from this launcher due to change in package name
These issues are :
*No Sony widget support...Fix: if you want weather widget... Use Xperia new weather widget from here it's working fine
Link:

*Uninstall directly doesn't work... Fix: Goto app info by pressing ' i ' icon and uninstall from there

*No unread count badge on app icons... Fix: Use Notifyer App from playstore as a workaround
Video tutorial here:
https://youtu.be/81UnlzmjoXw

*No Xperia themes support for Xperia users..
Fix: I can make pre-themed versions of Xmarshmallow, but you tell me which themes you like.. I can only port free Xperia themes to Xmarshmallow ..You guys tell me which

*Occasional Force stops ( very rarely if you're using stable version)...Fix: Clear Cache and data... If it doesn't help try rebooting once

*No Auto Rotate.... Fix: Use rotation apps from playstore and use force Autorotate option as a workaround

For more updates stay tuned with me on my Community (Only Xperia Users) https://plus.google.com/communities/...97677380941784

For Cyanogen And Other Users:
IMPORTANT NEWS
Recently I realised that my launcher not only works with Xperia users but also on all oems and OS running Android 5.0+ But for them the themes were inaccessible from the cust bar showing them the error 'app not found' . I tried to Change it for other users but I could not succeed. Hence I found out a workaround. I embedded them in the settings. Right now I have made for only three major theme engines. Link will be updated on Xda thread about the same in few hours . I hope you guys like it
1. Xperia
2. Layers
3. CM
If you find it not working then uninstall the other one or previous versions and try again

+Marília de Oliveira Actually you know what... Xperia themes apply to com.sonyericsson.home while my launcher package name is com.xmarshmallow.home
If you want to theme my launcher, target another file in asset to my launcher
For eg. Rename the com.sonyerics.... To com.xmarshmallow.... And include it assets folder 😊😊
