Default [MOD] Sense 4+ Rosie mods - 4x5 / no app labels / trans clock - updated 20th Jan

WHAT DO YOU GET IN THIS MOD?
  • 4x5 Rosie homescreen - only enabled in portrait, landscape comes out very messy!

  • No app labels on homescreen

  • No labels on Settings widgets

  • Transparent clock widgets

The mods are contained in an AROMA installer, and you can choose any combination of the above options.

I have changed over to the Villaintheme system, so the installer just replaces the modified files within Rosie.apk and the widget apks. This should hopefully make the mod compatible with multiple ROMs, bases and even other Rosie mods. I haven't tested it with other Rosie mods, so please let me know if it does / doesn't work!
HOW IS THIS MOD DIFFERENT?

Ok, just to be clear. Many others have worked on this, and got it working pretty well.

In particular, I owe thanks to
These guys have spent a lot of time on this, and much of the 4x5 homescreen mod is based on their work.

My addition?

I have managed to get the HTC 4x4 widgets working with the new layout. So no more widgets stuck under the statusbar.
REQUIREMENTS
  • Rooted XHDPI device running Sense 4+

  • Custom recovery (works with TWRP and CWM)

  • ROM based on 3.14.401.20 and higher -- confirmed to work with 3.14.401.24 (28th Nov),3.14.401.27 (6th Dec) and 3.14.401.31 (20th Jan)
BUGS

Of course, since this is still at best a hack job, there are still some issues:
  • 4x4 widgets are still only 4x4, but will take up the whole homescreen, even in the 4x5 mod. Please see the additional notes about this in post 7

  • 4x5 is only enabled in portrait. Enabling in landscape creates a huge mess, and I don't have enough time to fix that completely

  • Since 4x5 is only available in portrait, the bottom row of icons will disappear in landscape orientation. They will reappear when you go back to portrait again

  • Stock HTC widgets all fit fine, but there may be spacing/alignment issues with 3rd party widgets. That's an unfortunate side effect, but there's way too many 3rd party widgets to test and fix them all!!

  • When placing icons/widgets on a homescreen, the app placement outline will appear in the wrong place. The icon itself will drop where you place it, not where the outine is

Any others, please let me know!

Ok, important notes about the full page widgets with 4x5 mod:

1. They are just 4x4 widgets resized to sit in the right place. They will not fill the whole 4x5 page, so there will be a wasted area at the bottom. If you try to resize it to fill, you'll get overlap with the navbar. If you try to put icons in this row, they will disappear underneath the widget

2. I will not be able to fix this, since that will require changes to smali as well as m10 Mikeyxda did find a way to change 4x4 widgets to 4x5, but this requires a full wipe and reinstall of the rom. Sadly, even that doesn't fix it completely. So unless HTC change their code, this will always be a hack job at best.

3. If you do try resizing a 4x4 widget, you may find that you are then unable to delete the widget. If that is the case, just go into the homescreen overview and delete the whole panel

Think the fanatic is right, there are two problems: odexed & screen-resolution.
