I too OCD on the app drawer, wound up using Nova Launcher and creating "Apps", "Games", and "Misc" tabs. All the nonsense thus stays right out of apps.
hi, tliebeck

Would that be possible to use your app for an unrooted phone, since there's still no reliable method to root the Xperia M2 with 4.4.2 installed.

First i thought it did not work on my XPERIA Z with the 10.5.1.A.0.283 Firmware.

But after Restarting the Phone it worked nice

Default Did not work on the TMO HTC One M8

Phone is rooted, using stock ROM, running 4.4.2 Kitkat. Have made numerous attempts to manually edit the platform.xml file and all have failed. Tried Root Explorer, Total Commander, etc and nothing worked.

Ran this through your app, it said Fixed and I rebooted. Not fixed, tested by trying to delete a photo from my external microSD card using QuickPic. Did not work.

is my only recourse to run a custom ROM? Any help is appreciated.
