Hey everyone. As some of you know I have been working on Launcher2 from the gingerbread source for a few weeks now. Here I am releasing what I would like to call ghLauncher.

ghLauncher currently is Launcher2 for qHD screens with sensor landscape support. I plan to add more mods as time goes on, so right now it is mostly stock.

FEATURES
Quote:

Full qHD support
Landscape
fixed all touch alignment issues
fixed all 3D display alignment issues
fixed 3D texture tearing
fixed outdated landscape hot-seat images

More to come soon!

Requirements
THIS IS ONLY FOR QHD DEVICES!
THIS IS ONLY FOR GINGERBREAD ROMS!

HOW TO INSTALL
1) Download the app
2) Just install! if that doesn't work follow the rest of the guide.
push it to your system partition (2a or 2b. not both)
Quote:

2a) ADB METHOD
adb remount
adb push Launcher2.apk /system/app
adb shell
su
cd /system/app
chmod 644 Launcher2.apk

Quote:

2b)
ROOT EXPLORER METHOD
copy it in with root explorer on the phone.
set the permissions in root explorer

3) reboot!

-NOTES-
rom cooks, you may include this in your rom just give credit!
devs or anyone looking to learn the source is available here!

thats odd.... There is no Bluetooth icon included with the launcher. try installing as a system app? do you have a themed rom that could override the icon?

the 2d version of launcher2 works fine on qHD screens. just download one from the market. if i add more specific features ill compile a 2d version, or add a switch for 2d vs 3d
