It's for Touchwiz only, and only certain builds at that (see OP). 4.2.1 is JB.

Touchwiz 4.1.2 moded 4x5 (XXEMA2 in this case):
This is not working properly: Homescreen rotation is enabled,
but landscape mode is crippled down.

steps are:
4x5 ok, nice and correct
then ladscape - wth? (see landscape 4x5 bad.jpg)
then back - wth again (see portrait 4x5 bad.jpg)

So the questions are - is it wrong at all or it just does not work with moded TW or the magic number is not 3 ?

It's not going to work properly. They've stated all the mods here are for ICS.

Any guesses as to if this will work with my Relay 4g with a 480 x 800 screen on 4.0.4 ICS?

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!

Features
  • (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.
  • Scrolling wallpapers.
  • Page looping disabled (scrolling wallpapers looked like crap with this enabled).

Installation
  1. Download/copy appropriate version to internal storage.
  2. Boot into recovery.
  3. Make a backup!
  4. Flash/Reboot

ROM Developers/Cooks
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.

Changelog
  • 1.0
    • Initial release
  • 1.1
    • Reduced app drawer margin slightly due to text cropping.
    • Added 5th row to home.
  • 1.2
    • 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
  • 1.3
    • "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).
  • 1.3.1
    • 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)

Known Bugs
  • Icon text re-appears below docked "Messaging" app after receiving notification in landscape only!

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.

Legend
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?
Thx
