Download Touchwiz Launcher Mod 5x6 (Version 3):
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByX...it?usp=sharing

(Replace the original 'SecLauncher4.apk' in system/app with this one, be carefully at this and install other launcher (e.g. nova) before so you can use that if something goes wrong)

Because of questions here the detailed installation process for launcher and widgets:
-) download the apk
-) copy the apk to your sdcard
-) with e.g. Root Explorer copy the apk first ony to /system
-) rename the apk to its original name (without my mod-extensions on the beginning)
-) set the permissions to rw-r--r--
-) set owner and group to root
-) move the apk-file only now from system to system/app and replace the original one (or rename the original to.bak before)
-) if there is also an odex-file with same name delete it (or rename it to .bak)
-) clear dalvik-cache and cache
-) reboot

Widgets see post #2

You need ROOT for this MODS, its for odexed and deodexed Stock-ROMS (i used sources from MK2-firmware), if you are odexed then don't forget do delete the odex-file !!!
First do a backup, you need a Root Explorer to replace the original files in system/app or for SHealth in data/app (because of update), take care of the permissions rw-r--r-- and owner and group is root.

Should also work on other firmwares like MJ7 and so on, please try and post here.

I am not responsible for errors, brick, damage or something else

I wish I didn't have issues with TouchWiz when widgets gets frozen...right now I'm forced to use Apex launcher because of that, but hope that in near feature someone will figure out how to cure this disease...

Can you show how in your version:
1) very long names in apps and in folders look like, do they overlap?
2) notification badges look on apps and folders (number of missed calls, new messages, emails that shown on app's icon)
3) opened folder look like (with badges)

I'm asking this because I've spent probably 10 hours changing one number at the time in this launcher to make it "perfect" 5x6 but at the end gave up on badges being cut off and icons shown too close to the edges in folders.


Thank you.

Thank you for your effort. I was pretty excited about the Active App Widget with no title. However upon install, i found out it is too big.

Could you make smaller/original sized Active App widget mod with no title? I would appreciate it. Thank you sir.

(Screenshot with developer option for layout-boundarys on)


@ V@eno:

First if you have issues with frozen apps try this:
check if you delete the odex-file, clear dalvik-cache, clear cache and restart (to rebuild the dalvik-cache for the deodexed apps)

For the layout please check the screenshot and tell me what you really mean ... i know there are some little finetuning problems in the dock-line and there is a prob with 2lined text on folders in home-screen ....

@ firasusman:

Yes that is because the weather-widget is in beta status, as you can see on the sreenshot also the non transp version layout looks bad, it consumes much time to change the layout because there is no layout-xml
(if someone knows how to change quickly the layout based on the string-arrays please help)

@ wandro3d:

I will think about making different sizes after the first version incl weatherwidget is done

so have a nice 2014
