I know some of you are against changing the stock/vanilla android look, but for those who have tried any launchers that have been ported from other devices like Samsung, LG, Sony...

Wich launcher (share links if possible) have worked on your device?
Share your screenshots with the launcher in use and necessary steps to look alike.

The only decent launcher that i've been able to find working is the LG G2 launcher
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2580458

It looks ok, but the icons are way too small and the weather widget size (4x2) is smaller than home grid size (5x5) so it does not center.



Share your thoughts and links for other launchers that look good on the Nexus 7 20131

The TouchWiz launcher from the S4 also works. The launcher will be very small, but it can be enlarged using X posed Framework + App settings.

Suggestion, posting screenshots with the launcher in use and necessary steps to look alike.
I used XPeria launcher but kinda lagged on transitions. Also tried MIUI launcher but crashes on 4.4.2. Other than that it's smooth, fluid and looks good (:

Absolutely! Here's what I did. These steps are for those who don't know about Xposed Framework as well.

1. Make sure that Xposed is installed (the framework, not just the apk), download App settings module from the Downloads section within the app. Go back to the modules section, and activate the checkbox for App Settings.

2. Reboot. (It is recommended that you reboot for the framework to be installed for the changes to take effect. While this is true, I reboot after my modules are downloaded/activated. If not, they would require a second reboot as well.)

3. Navigate to "TouchWiz home" in App Settings. Switch it from Off to On, and change the DPI value to a resolution that you find suitable, and hit save. I use 460 for this launcher, and various values for different apps that I find is a waste of screen real estate (like 280 for the Play Store, and most of the Google Apps).

Got it working now, i didn't know which dpi setting to use, although the homescreen is 4x4, i wish it was 5x5 at least. Thanks for the help!

Not that I actually want it...but this is Android. I have it just because I can.

P.S.: Can't add any widgets to it. Not sure why the permissions are wrong, but I didn't care to figure it out. I don't use it.
