What is it? TweakWiz is my attempt at bringing some of custom launcher aesthetics to the default TouchWiz launcher. Sure, I could use a custom launcher -- and I have. I've tried dozens, but none of them can offer the same fluidity and speed that TouchWiz does. As I dig deeper within the TouchWiz code, more features will be added/unlocked!
(NEW) Rotation support! (Adheres to system rotation setting)
(NEW) App drawer icon centered!
Labels removed from docked icons.
Drop shadow removed from dock icons.
Margins optimized to maximize space (where possible)
4x5 homescreen layout
Page indicators removed, space reclaimed.
Page looping disabled (scrolling wallpapers looked like crap with this enabled).
Download/copy appropriate version to internal storage.
Boot into recovery.
Make a backup!
I have no problem if you wish to include this in your custom ROMs, I only ask that you provide a link back to this thread so users can keep up on any updates. For those looking to perform manual edits, see here.
Reduced app drawer margin slightly due to text cropping.
Added 5th row to home.
Adjusted launcher to eliminate overlapping of launcher icon "hot areas" and 5th row widgets. [sinichi21]
Adjusted launcher width to reduce "squished" appearance [eortizr]
Minimally Increased bottom padding on launcher to match positioning of icons (if any) on lockscreen
"Fixed" docked Messaging icon text re-appearing after a notification in portrait mode (still exists in Landscape)
Rotation support, and it respects your global rotation setting.
App drawer centered!
Re-adjusted margins a bit.
4x6 App Drawer in portrait and 7x3 in landscape.
80% app drawer translucency removed. (I'm not happy with how it appears on the screen, I'm working out a better method).
Fixed initial center app icon bug where app icon could sometimes be covered by another app icon when running TweakWiz for the first time.
Added optional NO_LANDSCAPE version (no rotation)
Added option NO_SCROLL version (no scrolling wallpaper, re-enabled page looping)
Icon text re-appears below docked "Messaging" app after receiving notification in landscape only!
Like AOSP/ICS? Check out mrvirginia's custom version of TweakWiz! [link]
Thank you! A moment of your time, please..
As with all of my contributions (here and elsewhere), I do this for fun and expect nothing in return. However, I have received a couple donations in support of my work recently, and while much appreciated, they are unnecessary. In lieu of donations to myself, should you feel inclined, I would much prefer any monies be donated to the CNCF Hope (The Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation) instead. This is a cause very close to my heart and this organization would benefit much more from your donation than I ever would.
Again, no obligation or expectations -- a simple "Thanks!" would more than suffice.
NO_LANDSCAPE: Launcher rotation disabled, portrait only.
NO_SCROLL: No scolling wallpaper, page looping/infinite scroll is enabled.
Hey, I'm still on 4.1.1 JB and I want to edit the scrolling wallpaper part only. Where would I go to edit htis and what would I need to type in? Please help, somebody! Thanks
Hi there, I flashed the tweakwiz zip through cwm, apparently installation had no problem but once restarted nothing happened. Tried several times but I still have the original touchwiz. Where do I go wrong?
