The launcher seemed to have cramped everything up, looking at thr screenshots. Is it what the real launcher looks like?

i have the launcher all setup, and added the English badges, but does anybody know how to disable the launcher's Lock screen? Even when I use a different launcher it's still the default launcher. I assume the option is there, but i can't find it.

Edit:
To disable the lock screen, all you need to do is kill its process from startups. It works like I want it now.

Although I wish there was weather, unless I can't find it. Haha

    Final Version! Manage to change MOST of the language to English. Not sure why some still isn't changed yet even though I edited it. But you should be able to use it.
