If it get successful then people will just forget about go launcher.

2. More transperancy in app drawer

maybe because you're on froyo and this widget is out since GB only (i'm not sure though)
Did you push it to system/app ?
it can't be installed as a normal apk
you have to push it to system/app using root explorer or somehting similar.

why still stuck on froyo as there's perfect roms on 2.3.5 and now JVT is out..
you can root and install a custom rom and went back to stock rom if you need to send the phone for repair for example

Theming
Theming HOWTO:

currently the following can be themed:
1. icons inside the app:
Code:
case Id.Menu.add: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_add.png"; 
case Id.Menu.cancel: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_cancel.png"; 
case Id.Menu.discard: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_discard.png"; 
case Id.Menu.edit: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_edit.png"; 
case Id.Menu.preferences: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_preferences.png"; 
case Id.Menu.save: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_save.png"; 
case Id.Menu.search: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_search.png"; 
case Id.Menu.share: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_share.png"; 
case Id.Menu.wallpaper: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_wallpaper.png"; 
case Id.Menu.settings: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"menu_settings.png"; 		

case Id.Folder.icon: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"folder_icon.png"; 
case Id.Folder.open: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"folder_open.png";  //unused?

case Id.Add.folder: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"add_folder.png"; 
case Id.Add.shortcut: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"add_shortcut.png"; 
case Id.Add.wallpaper: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"add_wallpaper.png"; 
case Id.Add.widget: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"add_widget.png";

case Id.AppMenu.app_running: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"app_running.png"; 
case Id.Dock.background: name = Settings.currentThemeDir+"dock.png";
case Id.pageIndicator: name= Settings.currentThemeDir+"pageIndicator.png";

+
"dock_apps.png" for apps icon
"dock_home.png" for home icon
+
workspace_settings.png
appmenu_settings.png
backup_settings.png
badge_settings.png
dock_settings.png
system_settings.png
theme_settings.png (for the icons in the preferences)
Name the icons like above, that means to change the page indicator icon you name your image "pageIndicator.png".
(If you want to theme additional icons, pm me..)

2. app backdrops in appmenu
icon size: 86x86px !
Name the tiles tile_packageName.png where you have to replace "packageName" by the package name of the app.
You can also specify random tiles with tileXX.png, here replace "XX" with numbers from 0 to 15 (0, 1, ... 15).

3. app icons
icon size should be 72x72 (or higher) so that the icon does not get upscaled.
Name the icon either packageName.png or className.png.
It will first look for the className.png then if not found, for the packageName.png, this means "packageName.png" is more convenient as long as the app does not have multiple icons in the appdrawer.

4. dock icons
Here the same as for app icons applies with the difference, that all icon names have to start with "dock_" (for example "dock_com.android.browser.png").
Dock icons overwrite app icons (if given).

At the end, zip all your images in a .zip (directly into the root folder of the .zip).
Lastly you can also overwrite settings with a theme.zip, to do that, do a backup in launcher settings, pull the "samsung.tw4.nextgen_preferences.xml" and remove all but the values you want to provide with your theme. Example is attached.
For additional info see the attached example themes.




To get your theme downloadable in the tw4manager, upload your theme somewhere and send me the following:

Explanation:

First part ("Iphone Folder" in this case):
The title of your theme.

Second part ("Cool iPhone like folder icons"):
The description of your theme.

The third part ("http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=742121&d=1317941031")
A direct download link to the theme. If you upload it here in the forum, do rightclick on the attachment, "open in new tab", there you have the url.
Note: if the url starts with forum.xda.... you must insert "http://" at the beginning.

The fourth part ("iphone_folder.zip"):
How your zip should be named when downloaded (Don't choose a generic name like "folder.zip").

The fith part ("http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=18185593&postcount=2173"):
A url where to view the theme. In this case it displays this post. Can be optional. If you don't want to provide an url, instert "null" (without "").

The sixth and last part ("http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=742125&d=1317941170"):
A direct dl link to an image you want to show for your theme in the app. If you don't have an image insert "null" again.

It is very important to keep the order! Also you must seperate every part with a ";" and lastly if you don't have a view url or a preview image, don't leave the parts out but instead insert "null" (No spaces except in your title/description, and of course don't use ";" in your title/description ).

Hi Fr4gg0r,
I'm using the latest version #17 and still can't sort the applications alphabetically.
I tried Restart and save and rebooted manually, nothing
tried "appzorter" from the market that works with the original TW...same results.

hi Chief.

tx for updates. I'll test asap.

Just a little note: the version since 14 eats here, by my side, a lot of battery. Am I the only one with this? [SG2 KF3, with 2.3.3 stokrom, rooted]

here you got the texts for the temes I made.

So what is the difference between the CyanogenMod version and the regular one?

Cyanogenmod users can kill apps like the settings app does (real force stop).
