I like nova launcher and all, but I'd really like to be able to use one of the original pull up app drawer, and if it could have some of the Cm theming as well, that would be great. I just kind of miss having it there, and would like it around just because I lived with it for years on my g1 and kind of liked how it worked.
Probably sent from my Galaxy Nexus running CM11, or maybe from my Galaxy S3 running Slimkat...either way it was sent from something with OLED and a custom ROM...even my computer with custom compiled Kubuntu...

If I helped you in any way, just remember that the thanks button won't bite the tail off of your cursor if you click on it

Not exactly what your looking for but if you set it up right (just a single app drawer button activated from the bottom of the screen only) you could achieve something similar:

yeah...I'm really thinking something like a recompiled version of the android 1.6 stock launcher with an allowance for install on devices with 4.4. If someone wants to attempt this, I think the source code is downloadable from here: https://android.googlesource.com/pla...apps/Launcher/ but I don't know how modifying it would work

I'm still looking for one...isn't there source code that someone could modify and compile?
