Has anyone found a launcher mod to make it 4x5 (4 wide x 5 high) for touchwiz? I found a couple that claim to work but I can only find 4 high x 5 wide.

UPDATE:

Does anyone have any information on HOW to mod the launcher? If I was pointed in the right direction I'd be willing to take a crack at it. Can't really find anything online about it.

EDIT:
Nevermind, I found this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2251719 and this http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...7/post27433971
I'll be working on this today. When I get something working I will share.

Just out of curiosity, what is it that makes you guys like TouchWiz launcher over apex or Nova?

Just the nice look, feel and simplicity. Apex is the closest to that but it doesn't play nice the widgets I like.

Status update...I was able to make the change and recompile the apk but when I try replacing the file it just removes the launcher from my system and I can't use it. And when I try just installing the apk it fails. My guess is that it's some kind of signing issue but this is my first time trying to mod so I'm not sure.
Any insight on this would be appreciated.

Agreed. I do like that most of the widgets work with TW. Especially the stock weather widget. When I use Nova I don't get all the options with in.
