O..I'm justly saying make it more like the iPhone function ....by holding on to the home button to get back home or some thing ..

Sent from my GT-I9100 using xda premium

That would need far more customization - not just the launcher itself. Long press home is bind for Recent Applications popup window. And the iphone doesn't really have an app drawer to begin with. It just has one home button that returns you, well, to your home page. What special feature of the iPhone you want "cloned"?

multidpi support

petrasj,

i just flashed hyperdroid rom with docs surgeon.
the point is i hate launcherpro and love the twlauncher
so i decided to put yours(which is awesome!), but it got out pretty nasty..
i assume of course it's because of docs dpi set to 192..
can you make a version that supports multidpi?? or at least 192?
there an attached pic of the nasty result..

I cannot support multi-dpi probably, but I have said i'll look into 192.

That would mean i should make another version of the launcher, plus the 6 I am already making, and that would make 9 in total.

I'm not too sure i can handle as many versions.

Thanks for this mod. Using the 5 icon dock and app drawer. Working nicely. Rated 5 stars and hit thanks for you mate. Would you mind if I share my customized version for my theme on my thread? You would get full credit of course.
Cheers.

You are very welcome to use this in your theme. Glad you like it.

I am close to finding a very easy solution on risizing widgets on the 2.1 version, if that interests you.

Yea that is good news. I tried out the other version earlier and managed to get most of the widgets to be 4 across but some Samsung widgets were not lining up (active apps, weather, buddies etc.) so I went back to the 5 icon dock and app drawer. I look forward to the new version if you find a solution. Samsung's implementation of the widgets isn't the easiest to work with is it.

It certainly is not easy to work with the widgets, very bad coding there, really.

I will be using a small script to resize all 4 column widgets into 5 column, and restart TWlauncher all at once. People are going to need gscript or rootexplorer to navigate and run it, but i guess that's much easier than downloading a SQL Editor.

    Hello there,

    This is a modification of the latest TouchWiz4 Launcher made by me. This post is going to be updated whenever a new version of firmware goes out.

    I do already know that TouchWiz 4.5 exists by fr4gg0r, which is far more customizable, but I have followed a different interpretation to this. This is not based on work done by fr4gg0r.


    DPI Version of the Euro launcher can be found in the 2nd post.
    TouchWiz from 4G version can be found in the 3rd post.
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTSIONS IN 4TH POST.

    Features
    • 5 icon dock
    • 5 column app drawer
    • Smaller fonts in icon dock so they don't get hidden
    • Better spacing of icons in homescreen
    • Better spacing on the badges
    • 5 column on the homescreen (separate version)
    • Resize on all widgets
    • Change default Homescreen (3 versions available)
    • New super easy way to resize widgets via script
      [*]160/192/216 DPI support (V3) - 3rd post


    SOON TO COME
    • Application to control features


    What are the advantages?
    • Uses the same id key as the original Samsung stock launcher, so all widgets work at once, without having the need to resign with different id
    • As a flash-o-holic, I will be providing this for the latest version of TW4.
    • Different DPI versions available for those who change dpi
    • Layout changes for better productivity and space.
    • 5 column support on the homescreen adds the ability to use more homescreen space, without needing to edit TouchWiz widgets separately that are having trouble resizing


    4 Columns, 5 icon dock, 5 app colum appdrawer menu (v1)

    V1 download links

    5 Columns Homescreen, 5 icon dock, 5 app column appdrawer menu (v2)

    2e663jm.png

    Information on the 4x5 version
    There are a few small issues that cannot get ironed out in this version of the launcher:
    • There is a 5th row as well (due to limitations), avoid using that space as you'll end up placing icons on top of the dock icons.
    • For 4 column widgets use the method described below to resize them into 5 columns
    • The CWM zip contains the PostIt widget, as that was not getting resized correctly due to Samsung's wrong coding.

    #NEW#Instructions on how to resize widget to 5 columns:
    Code:
    1) Add your your widgets to your homescreen.
    2) Download Script Manager
    3) Open it and navigate to /sdcard/gscript
    4) Run launcher.sh [B]AS ROOT[/B]
    5) DONE!

    Information on the DPI versions

    As expected with all launchers at a different dpi setting, there are issues resizing widgets. Here's a list of widgets that don't work, or work with specific modification

    • Samsung Widgets look funny, you must find the right size for them to work (usually 4 columns)
    • Calendar widget NOT available atm - it's a priority to get this fixed
    • All non-samsung widgets work with the following way

    #NEW#Instructions on how to resize widget
    Code:
    1) Add your your widgets to your homescreen.
    2) Long press and resize to 4 rows/4 columns for the widgets that you like
    3) Download Script Manager
    4) Open it and navigate to /sdcard/gscript
    5) Run launcher*your dpi*.sh [B]AS ROOT[/B]
    6) If widgets look funny, long press and resize manually to 4 rows/4 columns
    7) Done

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How to use
    • In the app drawer, hit edit, and add one more icon dock at the bottom of the page.
    • Rearrange your app drawer icons in a 5 column Layout OR use the modified Appzorter app from the fourth post.

    Solutions to Force Close problems
    Code:
    Hit Menu>Applications>Manage Applications>All>TouchWiz Launcher
    Force close and clear data

    How to use Appzorter
    The creator of the application Appzorter has kindly given me permission to modify his app for the Launcher's needs

    Appzorter comes with the launcher, if you don't like it simply uninstall it

    Code:
    1) Hit the Appzorter Icon
    2) Select Sort
    3) Go into Settings>Menu>All>Touchwiz Launcher>Force Close

    The application itself is undergoing a lot of work. He is adding a lot of new features. Please do consider buying his donate version. It's only 0.96 euros on the market, and I'm pretty sure most of you could spare that.

    Many many thanks to Demiurgous/demidoes.net for his kind support.


    Instructions if things go wrong:
    Code:
    Extract apk from .zip
    adb remount
    adb shell
    cd /system/app
    rm TouchWiz30Launcher.apk 
    rm TouchWiz30Launcher.odex
    hit Control + C
    adb push path to your download\TouchWiz30Launcher.apk /system/app
    adb reboot

    Landscape mode requests
    I am able to make the launcher redraw in landscape mode without losing sign keys. However the icon dock does not stay on the right of the phone, but goes in the bottom. The launcher is not optimized for landscape mode at all. Perhaps i'll be able to get this done in the long run.

    NOTE
    The European launcher and the 4G Launcher are not hot-swappable. That means that when using the 4G Launcher, you cannot revert back to the European Launcher (or vice verca) by flashing the zip.
    You need to WIPE data under Settings>Menu>Manage Applications. Install the other version of the launcher, then wipe data AGAIN.
    Failing to do so will cause FC's when trying to add a 5 icon dock.
