Default [Q] Hide icon labels on homescreen in TW?

Does anyone know how to hide the icon labels on the homescreen? I tried XGELS, but it didn't work. I'd rather stay with Touchwiz than getting a different launcher.

Assuming you're using the magazine launcher, I've recompiled it to add support for hiding icons in the app drawer. Backup the magazinelauncher.apk in /system/priv-app, and replace it with this file. Change permissions to 644 and reboot.

Well I got rid of all the Magazine stuff, but I'm not looking to hide icons in the app drawer anyway. I'm looking to hide LABELS on the home screen.

AFAIK it's not possible with the stock Touchwiz launcher. You'll have to recompile the launcher in order to achieve this.
