Default [APP][2Jul] New Xperia Launcher from Honami

Hey folks!

This is the new version of Sony's Xperia launcher ripped from the Honami firmware leak!
It has a very nice new touch and seems to work just fine on my SGS4.

Installation:
* You need to be rooted & have a custom recovery installed.
* Flash zip in recovery & enjoy!

Download:
* Seed attached file.

Should technically work to flash on any SGS4 version!

To-do: (When I have time and feel like it.)
* Remove "Themes" section since it makes no point on our SGS4. However this is nothing critical as there's no fc.
* Optimize app grid size to make better use of SGS4 screen space.
* Link "menu" button to launcher settings.
* Add releated Xperia Z widgets and wallpapers as optional/separate flashable zips!

Bugs:
* If HD Widgets doesn't load, just kill the launcher or/and restart phone.
* No more known bugs & overall stable and smooth, just like the drinks I mixed last weekend!

Screenshots:

Is there any chance of getting this as an apk?
I'm not rooted and would really like to try it out?

Apk needs to be installed as a system app to work for now. Why are you even on XDA in the theme threads if you are NOT rooted?

No it does not. clock widget is a paid Play Store app called HD Widgets + the addon Colourform!
