The development of ReLaunch has recently been progressing rapidly again thanks to Haron who took over as the lead developer, and numerous contributions from other people. As a result of all the recent work, version 1.4.0 has just been released as a significant update. The new version also includes a complete rewrite of the English localization, thanks to yours truly.

ReLaunch is a versatile launcher application for the Nook Simple Touch (Sony PRS-T1 is also supported). It provides a complete replacement of the Home screen functionality, and can be used with any number and combination of book-reading applications. ReLaunch allows extensive customization of the user interface, which gives you quick access to the features and third-party applications you use most.

For an overview of the features available, please refer to the screenshots below:

There are no hidden settings, I assure you it's all there somewhere in the menu. Some menus have multiple pages, in which case you need to swipe up to move to the next one. Then, every item marked with a ▶ takes you to a subpage. What's seen in the screenshots is located at:

Settings → Advanced Settings → Home Folders and File Settings → File Type Associations

Settings → Advanced Settings → Interface Customization → (Swipe up 3 times for page 3) → Rearrange Panels and Customize Buttons

I believe he's talking about the new long-press ability of the "Setup Wifi" button, which takes the user to a list of "hidden" settings.

Looks really good, but I have a problem with supposedly hidden files (filenames beginning with a dot) - I can't get them to actually hide.
Neither checking nor unchecking "show hidden files" in the settings menu hides them from view, and I also tried adding a filter for files beginning with a dot but it doesn't seem to work as well. I'm pretty sure these files were hidden in the previous version of relaunch I had.
Any idea on how to hide hidden files?

Thanks,
Niv

Edit: it appears there was indeed a bug that's now been fixed. If you're affected by this, please re-download version 1.4.0. The rest of this post is left as it might still have information useful in another situation.

I've just checked, and it works for me. However I need to manually tap Save Configuration Changes and Restart, which is the last item in the Advanced Settings menu. Note that the hidden files are just the ones that start with a dot, so on my SD card it's just the ".cr3" and ".relaunch" directories.

I find it better to actually hide all the files except the ones that have associations. There's an option to do just that in the latest development version, 1.4.0+ (I've updated the first post in the thread to include the link). It's in SettingsAdvanced SettingsHome Folders and File Settings, immediately below the File Type Associations.

For 1.4.0 and below, I've been successfully using the following regular expression filter:
Code:
.*\.(azw|cb7|cbr|cbz|chm|djv|djvu|doc|epub|fb2|fb2\.zip|htm|html|jpg|jpeg|mobi|oxps|pdf|pdf|png|prc|rtf|txt|xps)$
It's in: SettingsAdvanced SettingsFiltering and File OperationsFiltering Rules. Tap on Add Rule, and then for the Rule, choose Name Matches Regular Expression, and type or paste the above into the Value field below. This list of extensions are the ones I have set-up associations for, you might want to tailor it to your needs. Screenshot below:

Oh, if that's the case (is it, Kazikas?), then it's not really ReLaunch specific, these are just system settings. I found the following two useful enough to be included in my heavily-modified, barnless & denobled Settings.apk:
  • Development Settings: for switching off the Auto Mount, which I do occassionally (the setting resets itself at reboot)
  • Proxy Selector, which is useful for Adblock Plus. Although I don't really set it there but in my custom image during installation, I added it for completeness.
It might just be me but I've never had the need for any of the remaining ones.

This is all relative, because each app installed takes up more battery when running, but I'd estimate my Nook Touch Glow loses about ½ to 1 percent more battery per hour rooted than it did when it was unrooted.
