I've moded the ND8 SecLauncher2.apk to have 5 rows down and 4 accross. DL HERE if you like.
I've also found that we can use the modded SecLauncher3.apks from the S4 I found HERE as well. BUT they are flashing to the system/app folder which doesn't work. What I did was extract the apk from the zip and with es file explorer pasted it into system/priv-app, set perms to rw.r.r renamed the SecLauncher2.apk to SecLauncher2.apk.bak and rebooted. If there is more interest in this I'll get with the original dev and ask if I can make flashables for our device here so it'll be easier.

So much better. Always hated the padding at the bottom of the stock launcher. Been using a modded seclauncher2 from the int'l s3 for over a year now just because of that unused gap... very nice job.
Thebe@r'$ G@L@XY- I hate Google.
Thanks. I've hated the gap too! Since 4.4.2 dropped I've been trying to figure out how to do all of my favorite mods. This was a fun find. Now if we can figure out the battery icon and how to port the keyboard so we can have the extra number row. I can't tell you how much time I've spent learning what doesn't work to change them.
Thanks Chad just jumped to an ND8 port on att and I needed this. I'll ask enewman17 about the keyboard. I'll update the aosp mms later today too if its not working
I saw that there was a port over there. :thumbup: @enewman17 is the person I got the keyboard from in the past so if he would be willing to help us out, that would be awesome. I haven't tried aosp mms yet. Lots to do over here.
Thanks @chad The Pathfinder! This is great! I'm on a stock deodexed, deknoxed, debloated and modded ND8 rom. I finally have the "proper" IMHO 😁 screen room for my home screens. Working great and Loving it! Thanks again!
