Xpresso Launcher
By Team X
@Dadovvv, @Brandon Nel and Sir @jjwrongjj.

Please Don't tell me to add new features to it. Only original developer of the launcher can do it....that is SONY
Do not mirror these links without permission or w/o giving proper credits
Porting is also considered as a part of development
Please respect it :)

Installation Method:
For Non Rooted Versions:
? Download the version of your choice
? Install and Enjoy

For Rooted Versions:
?Download the version of your choice
?Move the apk to respective folder using root browser and give permissions rw-r--r--

?If you have superusermod installed just install the apk normally

Please Note :
For a clean installation to ensure no not installed errors, always uninstall the previous versions of the same

I know it's little late... But did you guys tried xmarshbadgefix home version 1.0 which was in beta stage on Xda by +Micha? Ambroziak???????? ??????
I did some makeover over it and updated it to version 1.2

*What's tested :*
Messaging app (Only xperia's stock) badge
Whatsapp app badge

Added settings to go quickly to system settings and default home settings
Removed themes option from inside the settings
Added new badge icon
Removed modified by section

You must uninstall any copies of Xmarshmallow version 1 ie ones with modern layout
Xmarshmallow v2+ should work fine simultaneously with this version but in case if it doesn't work then try uninstalling Xmarshmallowv2+ also

*You can get it here :*

Xmarshmallow Version 1.0
Base version : 10.0.A.0.5

For Cyanogen And Other Users:
Recently I realised that my launcher not only works with Xperia users but also on all oems and OS running Android 5.0+ But for them the themes were inaccessible from the cust bar showing them the error 'app not found' . I tried to Change it for other users but I could not succeed. Hence I found out a workaround. I embedded them in the settings. Right now I have made for only three major theme engines. Link will be updated on Xda thread about the same in few hours . I hope you guys like it
1. Xperia
2. Layers
3. CM?
If you find it not working then uninstall the other one or previous versions and try again

Both pictures below are with same theme but note the icon of the house does not change does not make any effect, and this a bug? how can I fix?

Thanks, great job. ;)
+Marília de Oliveira Actually you know what... Xperia themes apply to com.sonyericsson.home while my launcher package name is com.xmarshmallow.home
If you want to theme my launcher, target another file in asset to my launcher
For eg. Rename the com.sonyerics.... To com.xmarshmallow.... And include it assets folder ??

Can You add auto rotate option in next release? ;)

Some how it's not possible to Implement this feature for non rooted devices. Then Also I'll look into it?
These features and other many other features target the original home package, since to make it work with non rooted I have changed the package name, we lose some of the features

I have finally managed to port Xperia Home launcher from concept rom to lollipop devices
Special thing about this launcher is that it Requires NO ROOT
and is Supported by all icon packs available in Playstore except the ones which Are Made for Concept Launcher
Few more tweaks are applied by me in terms of visual
Be sure to uninstall the concept launcher or z5 launcher first. If you're already using a another xperia launcher running parallely with original home then it won't install. First uninstall it :)
For more updates stay tuned with me on my Community https://plus.google.com/communities/102278997677380941784
