I have used several from which all have the same issue, the "Edit Page" in landscape mode is off as well the folder preview in Landscape mode in the App Drawer is off as well.

These may be easy fixes for some but for others it may not. I was offered help in fixing these issues and hopefully many, as I, will learn off of it. Hoping in providing the fixes and code modifications here as well as added mods done to the Stock Launcher.

I have looked and the closest I have seen to a S5 Launcher coming close with everything is the launcher posted by member xxxcachepxxx here which is at 240 DPI:
If there is a complete launcher please let me know, I have not found one as of yet.

Thanks for the background info. Sounds like some xml edits are needed. So basically you are trying to achieve a fully functioning landscape enabled S5 Launcher? From my past experiences with landscape launchers, some apps and widgets also need to be modified. I remember doing this on HTC EVO with tommytomatoe a few years ago. Ofcourse HTC Sense is completely different but the fundamentals are the same. I have seen another landscape S5 launcher project somewhere here on XDA. I'll post link when I find it.

Here's the one I found that looks like a lot of work has been done thus far...

Find me on Google Hangouts so we can compare notes and I can get caught up with your progress and current area your working on.
