[APP][UPDATE:18/8] TencentDesktop - MIUI Style Launcher (腾讯桌面 腾讯)

Here is the translation of Tencent's Tencent Desktop.
Note: I didn't make this app, I just translated it using UziTech's Android Translator

What is Tencent Desktop?

Tencent Desktop is a translation of the Chinese Dev's MIUI Style Launcher. it doesn't have an app drawer, has some MIUI icons, supports themes and has iPhone/MIUI lookalike folders. It runs very smoothly on slow phones (such as my LG GT540) and has a dockbar with up to 4 icon support.

Market description, translated:
Tencent Desktop for Chinese users accustomed to fully optimize the user desktop experience is an easy to use, compact, convenient and reliable, the most simple and efficient, beautiful, professional mobile desktop.

A. Look up ZduneX25's MIUI theme & patch on XDA.

3. What is that widget?
A. GO Weather with the MIUI theme

Dude, how did you enable transparency? I mean, I already have transparency in my ROM but while in ADW Launcher, I need to disable wallpaper hack in order to have transparent, I looked on the Tools + Preferences and didn't saw anything. If you could get me that, I would be including this into my ROM (of course, with your permission).

You have my permission(I didn't make it originally though)
Download MultiPicture Live Wallpaper from the market & set it to single picture and your wallpaper. Now it's transparent when you set it as live wallpaper

    More English

    Okay, thank you Quinny899 for translating most of this app from Chinese to English. Really, I mean thank you. This is quite an awesome launcher. Anyway, even though you translated so much of this app, I saw a lot of Chinese in it. So I went ahead and use Google's multilingual android app to translate even more of this app. The apk has been translated, compiled, and signed. So just feel free to install, and hit the "Thanks!" button for me. Thank you!

    Pretty nice launcher. Went to market and found another by the same group that works even better for me.

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.tencent.qqlauncher&feature=search_result

    Give it a look, may just find you like this the best!

    Just for everyone else wanting to know how to theme icons for this thing.

    theres a log list with the activity names of your icons in sd/qqlauncher/log.txt, it lists the correct activities for all your apps, but it displays them with upper case characters, so you need to make the .pngs have all lowercase otherwise the system won't use the icons. I suggest using notepad++ to read the log list too, as it displays it all nice and cleanly compared to the normal notepad.

    Use 7zip on the theme file in sd/qqlauncher/theme and just add your images to the icons section of that.

    I've found 86 x 86 is the best size and the size that this app uses for it's "hd" icons, i tried some 120 x 120 icons and they wouldn't work. so yeah.. stick to that size.

    Hope this helps someone. Took me a while to figure out, specially the lowercase thing.

    edit: oh yeah, I changed the page indicators, too.

    just extract the APK and change the walkerdot images to whatever you like.

    Trying out my WIP icons on this launcher.

    4) download my zip and extract it, then move file '圆润有爱' to /sdcard/QQLauncher/theme/ (replace with downloaded one)

    5) go back to theme gallery and apply downloaded theme (there will be old preview, so just set it)

    Important: tested on mdpi only
