Hey all, need some advice here. Got a i317m (Telus, Canada, but it's the same as this so I figured I'd ask) and I miss the hidden apps feature that got lost in an update. I need to hide apps from the launcher, so many useless apps or apps I need once in a while but it's useless to in stall every two weeks, and of course, banking apps.

I saw an app hider in the store that requires a rooted phone.
I've been told I can add a custom launcher, but I'm not sure if that gets rid of the current ones.
And then I can put a custom rom on, or an older one.

Here is what I'm asking, which is the easiest, because I tried to put Cyangenmod and it just wouldn't go for some reason. It's out of warranty so I don't really care. ^__^.

Custom launchers like Nova and Apex run as an additional option and do not replace the stock launcher. You can always uninstall it if you don't like it. I just checked my stock TouchWiz launcher on ezKAT and have the ability to hide applications. I haven't run a stock ROM so don't know if that option is hidden there somewhere in the app drawer.

It was removed as a feature in an update. Heavily made me sad.
