Hey, so it has been a long long time since I have posted or even ported anything.
Finally, xperia updated the launcher and it was a must port for me.
The launcher should theoretically work on all xperia devices with android Pie (and sony software). I have currently tested it on Xperia XZP. You can also activate pill via an adb command.
Simply install the apk and then install the wallpaper apk and then reboot
If you want pill, you must use adb with your device.
I will not be explaining how to use adb, there are many guides out there.
But to activate pill simply use this adb command
adb shell settings put secure swipe_up_to_switch_apps_enabled 1
FOR XPERIA XA2
Not Working :- (Testing needs to be done to get the app working on these, logcats also need to be provided)
Known bugs :-
Split screen causes force closeFixed v1.1
Force Close on rotating Fixed v1.2
More than 1 page in folder FC on rearrange Fixed v1.5
App split shortcut not working
v1.3 If you plan on using pill with this launcher, this one might be the most stable option for you. Navbar replacement/shortcut apps should work with this as long as this launcher is the default (App close animation had to be slightly altered).
v1.4.1 first of all, both have recents working without pill
v1.4.2 second version has recents working with other launchers, but to do this, i had to remove app opening animation(not the gesture) from the recent, so If this is something you cant live without, go with v1.4.1, but if you wanna use other launchers, then this is the version you want
Hope you all enjoy it as much as i am.
Don't forget thanks button and feel free to donate
Thanks @TakuyaZ for providing the apks from the system dumps (and motivating me )
Lastly, please do not use or repost my work without authorization, as this port was done for me and for a friend, took me at least 8 hours of constant work to get it to work properly and was not as easy and simple as copying from a system dump and uploading it and simply calling it a port.
