Alright, let's see what everyone is sporting for their home screens!

Here is mine:



I like a clean look. I don't like having contacts scattered all over the screen hence the invisible folder under the contacts widget. I find organizing everything into folders where each screen is its own sort of "hub" keeps away from the traditional scattered grid-icon approach and allows one to better enjoy the wallpaper.

For the Lock Screen I am using:
Widget Locker https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Rsb2NrZXIiXQ..
The clock widget is from Ultimate Custom Widget https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...13aWRnZXQiXQ..
Using the Dark MotoBlur UCCW skin https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=search_result
Notifications are from Missed It! https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...5NaXNzZWRJdCJd
The red unlock slider is the "RedLineMod" available through the Widget Locker app.
The "LED On/Off" button is a custom made Minimalistic Text https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...5pbWFsdGV4dCJd widget, and activates the LED through TeslaLED
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...FzaGxpZ2h0Il0.
Everything else on the lock screen is a widget made through Minimalistic Text.

Home Screen:
I am using NovaLauncher in place of the stock launcher https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...5sYXVuY2hlciJd
The main home screen with the clock, CPU usage, battery etc... is all made through Minimalistic Text. The phone / messaging etc.. icon is from the Minimal Text Theme icon pack https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Fkd3RoZW1lIl0.
For the other screens I am stacking the Games, Contacts, Apps, and Media widgets made in Minimalistic Text on top of a black bar from Minimalistic Text (allow overlapping widgets in NovaLauncher settings)
The folder icons are replaced with custom made icons from Simple Text-Text Icon Creator https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ltcGxldGV4dCJd
Lastly, the invisible folder under the contacts widget is just a blank Simple Text icon.
The wallpaper I got from Zedge and modified, you can get it here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/8864209/201...2023.01.27.jpg

Obviously, I like a lot of customization. Here's what I'm using, in order from left to right, top to bottom:

Launcher: beanstown106's 5x4 custom stock launcher: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2026233

SystemPanel end all tasks widget

AudioManager small widget (minimal transparent white skin)

Temp+CPU V2 widget

Extended Controls widget

Beautiful Widgets smaller home widget (curved-blue-contrast clock skin + SkullGray weather skin)
- I chose that skin because of the font it uses, transparency is at full so none of the blue shows up.

Pure Calendar widget (transparent skin, all text colors set to white)

Launch-X Pro (Minimalist white icon pack, manual icon selections for apps with no matching icon)

Desktop Visualizer (Used to create the shortcuts with custom icons and text for the phone/gmail/sms/browser buttons in the stock launcher, also using the Minimalist white skin)


Not visible but I'm also using Home2 Shortcut to restore double pressing home to open an app (I use it to open gmail)

I'll edit my original post with everything I'm using. Takes 5 minutes between posting/editing and I need time to write it all down, haha.
