In this guide I'll be showing you how to customize your homescreen to look at least a bit alike iOS 7. I know there are another guides or tuts with the same topic, and yes, I've also tried each of them, but I definitely haven't found one around this forum or even google that really fits. Please, do remember that I make this because I--myself--am a fan of iOS 7 UI and I thought it'll be cool if I (or any other people) can make it possible on my ACE 2. Now, let's get to the things you'll need.

REQUIREMENTS:
  • Android Phone running 4.0+ Operating System (ICS and above)
  • Yes, other devices (other than Ace II) can use this guide. Different changes might be needed.

THINGS YOU'LL NEED:

[OPTIONAL] ACE 2 CM11 KITKAT ONLY:

STEP-BY-STEP:
Install everything needed!

Fonts? Open ifont and search for Helvetica S, download > install > reboot

1. Launch Nova Launcher Prime and set it as your primary launcher
  • Nova Settings > Select Default Home > Tap "Nova Launcher" > Always
2. Navigate to Nova Settings > Desktop and make these changes below
  • Desktop Grid = 5 x 4 (or you can set it to any number fits best)
  • Width & Height Margins = Small
  • Show Shadow = ✓
  • Scroll Effect = None
  • Wallpaper Scrolling = On
  • Infinite Scroll = ✓ (you can uncheck it if you want)
  • Label Icons = ✓
  • Resize All Widgets = ✓
  • Widget Overlap = ✓
3. Once you're done, go to Dock and make these changes below
  • Enable Dock = ✓
  • Dock Style = ON | For the background, use the Dock Image you downloaded and set the Fill Mode to Fill
  • Dock Icons = 4
  • Width Margin = Small
  • Dock Height = Large
  • Show Scroll Indicator = Uncheck
4. Now on to the Look & Feel, make these changes below
  • Color Theme = It's light blue at default, you can let it be as it is or you can change it to a darker color (if you have darker wallpaper)
  • Icon Theme = Choose Flat Icons OS7
  • Icon Size = 130% - If it's too big for you, set it with the size that fits best
5. (OPTIONAL) Make these changes below ONLY IF you have installed TeslaUnread
  • Unread Counts = ON
  • Position & Size = Top-Left | LARGE
  • Presets = Custom
  • Colors = White - Red (don't set it too bright) - White
  • Corner Radius = 8 (the highest one)
6. (OPTIONAL) If you want a nice iOS 7 Clock Widget, follow steps below
  • Long press anywhere on your Desktop/Homescreen until a pop-up window appear
  • Now, choose Widget > UCCW > choose any size (ex: 2x2)
  • Ios clock (it comes in one package with Flat Icons OS7)
  • Resize it so it'll look good on your homescreen

YOU'RE SET! If you do it right or had no problem while doing it. This will be the result.
Exclude the status-bar.

Oh, and a little information. I was currently working on a project and hopefully a custom ROM, but since I'm a newbie, I guess I won't do a free-jump as if I knew much about customizing a ROM. So I'll start with the SystemUI, which is one of the common parts that (from my point of view) people usually mod/customize. You'll know it when it's done. - DONE! With the help of @MR.Volkf in this thread.
