You have 2.0.5b or 2.0.6 Home launcher.
It's a customized launcher but it's very, very good.
And you can choose number of columns and rows as you like.

Try it - it's very good...

+1 for a mod like this
+1 for a mod like this! Been using Nova Launcher on my previous phones but I like the stock one on this phone and would like to keep using those widgets that only work in the Sony launcher. A 5x4 layout would work much better for certain widgets I use so I hope someone is able to mod this!

+1 on this for the mod. But the new Nova Beta from today looks great too. Icon size to 110% and The Text Size to Normal instead of Condensed the phone is looking gorgious.

Hey guys,

Since a couple of us are looking for this mod, I decided to give it a go myself. I found this post to help - although it's for the Touchwiz launchers, I figured it could be adapted to ours as well.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=27433971

I found similar settings in our home.apk and modified them, however upon uploading the modified home.apk, nothing changed. I tried making several edits, none of which actually changed something visible on the screen. I went as far as completely erasing the home.apk from the phone - still it was somehow being used as the default launcher, which has me believing that another file is used as the launcher. I used system\app\home.apk. Maybe someone with some more knowledge can shed some light on this so we can get this mod going?

Thumbs up Done!
Hey guys,

Gave it another go, and voila: a 5x4 launcher. Put it in system\app and enjoy! If you feel it needs some further tweaking, feel free to let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Thread not found error, please can you link it again so I can have a look at how it is done. Or could you tell us which settings needed changing

Also, was it this version of the home.apk you used or an older one.
Home.apk V6.1.A.0.5
