Hi, My first mod for the Note 3 (9005) is this...

Touchwiz Launcher (SecLauncher4) with only the grid modified for 5x4 (5 rows down by 4 accross, see Screen).

I've done it for myself, and a work colleague, but I'm popping it up here for anyone that wants it.

I may do some of the other common mods at some point, but this is a get it working sort of thing.

** Note - Some of the standard Samsung Widgets are finiky about layout, I may end up fixing some, but the main one to break (clock/weather) I don't use anyhow. I'll get around to fixing the sizing on it shortly though as I know it's widely used. Flash in recovery as per usual.

ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP - I can't stress that enough! At least make a copy of /system/app/SecLauncher4.apk

UPDATE - New version, had bug in installer script, would have caused ZIP to fail to install.

UPDATE 2 - I've uploaded a modified AccuWeather Widget, Just install from ZIP as per usual. Obviously if not having a Bootloader, then unpack the zip and move the APK into the /system/app folder manually and delete the .odex file as well.

UPDATE 3 - I've uploaded a quick and dirty mod of the ENA6 SecLauncher4.apk. This one takes a little installing though, and for the moment I'd rather you do it manually with ADB or a Root Browser.
  1. Download the ZIP and unpack it, put the APK onto your device
  2. Launch ESFile and make sure you mount System RW
  3. Goto /system/priv-app and rename SecLauncher4.apk to SecLauncher4.bak
  4. Goto the location you copied the downloaded APK, and copy it into the Clipboard on ES
  5. Go back to /system/app and PASTE the APK into the folder (NOT the priv-app folder!)
  6. Reboot
I'll get round to sorting out the widgets (if they need it, I've not tested), but at the moment I'm trying to defeat the new imposed block on non-Samsung S-View cases

SPlanner seems to work fine It's the reason I've modded the launcher rather than just keep using Nova.

I'll have a fiddle in a bit, see what can be done. The Callendar widget accepted a couple if mods in the launcher to make it look ok, seems weather is a different framework... Probably different devs

I've fiddled with the spacing slightly, and as far as I can see everything seems to be happy besides the AccuWeather Widget. So use the nodded one I've posted and everything else should be tickets boo. Let me know if you bump into anything untoward.

Does it not work? I've not noticed as it's another one I don't use. I'll have a look into it if it's broken.

Just had a look, besides being forced to 4x4 it seems to work OK?, I'll see if I can change it's restraints so it will scale to 5x4
