Launcher Modding instructions - tutorial
First you need to know how to Decompile/Recompile APK's, I use xdaAutoTool_V4.0.3.
This does not cover how to do that.
After the SecLauncher3.apk
you need to focus on the res/values-sw359dp-xxhdpi directory
The files you need to modify are:
- Pick how many columns and rows ie: 4x4, 4x5 etc...
- Many sizing options for each cell and page
- Text size and locations
l you need to be aware that combinations will affect how the icons layout on the screen, just because you ask for 5x6 doesn't mean you will see them all on the screen, unless you set the Dimens files properly.
these also will affect how the Widgets display, your choices may cut off edges of widgets, or even cause them to display totally transparent.
you should leave the weather widget on the screen to see just how bad your changes did. (Note: if you switch between 4x and 5x displays, you must delete the weather widget and put back the correct one.
Here is an excel spreadsheet broken down by the settings I changed by Integer choice.
The last column is for changing to have the page indicator at the bottom of the screen, the default is above the hotseat bar
Home - is the home screen pages format
Hotseat - the bottom 5 icons
Menu - The App Drawer
After you recompile all the changes exist in the resources.arsc
you can basically use any of my launcher mods and replace the file and you will be ready to test it on your phone.
