No root needed
Nova Launcher.or any other launcher that support widget overlaying and resizing.
Note/update: Lite version (link down below) only uses UCCW, if you want that version instead, skip the tutorial and download it from google play.
Nova Launcher settings:
Desktop->Desktop Grid-> Row (6), Columns (4).
[X]Resize all widgets
[X]Overlap when placing
Dock->Enable Dock. Dock->Dock Icons->(5)
[*]Look and feel -> Color Theme -> # fc7814
Turn off "Persistent search bar" if you have it on
Apply the corresponding settings to your launcher.
Extra settings are available if you press vol down a few times in Nova settings.
If there are gaps between (the music-)widget, play with the "backgroun" layer in UCCW and change the width/height ->save.
If the widgets aren't aligned right, try turning off the statusbar through your launcher (in Nova settings: "Look and Feel"). Last resort is to use ssLauncher which doesn't use the "grid system". You're able can choose the exact size and the exact size and position of placement of the widget using ssLauncher.
After downloading your launcher and UCCW, install all the apps provided in the package. Find and open the folder called "ClarusThemeXML", copy "Clarus" to the root folder of your SD-card.
Apply the wallpaper. if you have problem applying the wallpaper in portrait mode, download Wallpaper Wizardrii™. Chose "no scroll" when applying a wallpaper in portrait mode.
Follow the video instructions for the rest of the setup.
Note: clarus widget is no longer used, read the updates in the second post.

UCCW Theme apk ("NERV_QN08T.apk") updated to version 1.5
Weather widget - fixed highest temperature misalignment.
The MusicWidget UCCW theme is now 2x2, which means it is only ONE widget now and not two put together.
Added new NERV_Memory versions to choose from. Use Memory_v2 or v4 instead. Information on the widgets below
Clock widget now displays in 24h format, instead of 12.
Included AudioWidget resized version, one small and smaller hexagon dots.

FIXES FOR VISUAL GLITCHES:
New memory widget, you do not need clarus widgets when using this one!
It displayes missed calls (left side), unread message (right side). The last digit is the unread counter, the other numbers are just for show.
Resized music control buttons!
Music widget bottom version 2 (to match the misaligned text on music control)
Resized audio widget! Version 1(small) and Version2 (smaller).
I can't test it since I don't own any devices with your misalignment, hope they will work.
Will try to help out more when my exams are over next week. I have other projects outside school that I do, so I cant promise anything
I am applying the theme now and it looks like the Nerv_memory widget is not covering all of the CPU monitor lite widget (leaving a little left on the sides) and the Clarus XML file for BATTEMP says something about Unexpected EOF when I try to load it in Clarus.
EDIT - I removed the status bar, and that seemed to fix some of it, but still a very little bit, not that big of a deal (for the Nerv_memory widget part). Also UCCW seems to be crashing when ever I try and open the app to set the Hotspot thing, I will keep on trying.
Due to the relatively open nature of Android, it’s almost a given that there are … more
