Kudos to you man! Great job done porting it but IMHO with all due respect to your work, the latest touchwiz launcher looks cheap. Ever used Samsung Champ? It looks like that. Bad Samsung!

How does it look cheap? It's exactly the same as TouchWiz4, with some added eye-candy and unrivaled smoothness. This thing flies!

And possibility to choose default homescreen, alphabetical grid and other missing things that would've been nice on tw4

@Smando Just one thing to point out (probably the reason it aint working for some people)
On the zip the lib is in system/libs not system/lib so it isnt copying to the right destination

GREAT job. Works great on my ATT SGS2 running a i9100 Rom. Now can you get the app drawer to be alphabetical? That's the only thing I swap the US touchwiz out on when running a i9100 based firmware. Again GREAT JOB!

Hey! Smando!

Tried it on GSII running stock ICS, but it doesn't seem to work... get the famous "Unfortunately your app has stopped" message...

Is it possible to install it by pushing the apk and the lib files to system/app and system/lib folders? That worked like a charm a few minutes back...

Yes I noticed that as well, manually copied libdrawglfunction.so and now the launcher is working :)

Just Click menu when opening the application grid -> view type -> alphabetical grid ;)

Must say I kind of miss wallpaper scrolling already, but if that's the price I have to pay for a super smooth experience, then so be it.

Nailed it bro!!!

That was the problem... the lib file was being pushed to the "libs" folder... All I did was cut it and pasted it in the "System/lib" folder and it is up and running!!

Great catch!!!

Resizing icon to 72x72 cause some other layout problems...

    Galaxy S2.5 TWUX Launcher

    *** Guide: How to modify cell sizes, grid dimensions and icon styles in TouchWizUX (SecLauncher2.apk) ***

    Amazing! Thanks to your guide, I've done my own launcher based on Smando's v1.5.1! :good: Thank you very much ;)
    This is my custom launcher, I call it "Galaxy S2.5" because I made its margin similar to TouchWiz 4.0 launcher in our S2, so that we can use S2 stock widgets with this launcher and feel like with the old one.

    Changes (compared to Smando's 1.5.1):
    - Modified margin and grid (homescreen & apps drawer)
    - Modified gaps between widgets --> useful with S2 stock widgets
    - Modified homescreen height
    - Smaller badge font size (email, sms, social hub COUNTER)
    - Uppercase, bold style, smaller size for Apps drawer tabs title (APPS, WIDGETS) --> closer to original ICS
    - Disable wallpaper scrolling (as I see many requests to disable this function)
    - UPDATE: I've made another version that enabled wallpaper scrolling ;) See it in attachments plz.

    Thanks to:
    Smando (of course!) for his great porting
    Gyebro for his useful guide, well, the guide helped me so much! :good:

    As Smando ported this great launcher, so I still leave his name unchanged in the codes and application name. Again, thank you Smando! ;)
    The attachments below are:
    - S2 stock weather widget w/ transparent background (by me)
    - S3 weather widget modded by me
    - and my TWUX Launcher (2 versions)

    ***Install:

    - Copy file libdrawglfunction.so in the archive below to /system/lib. Then set permission to RW-R-R.
    - Copy the file .APK to /system/app to replace the previous ones (don't forget to rename them by deleting "-byQdezi" :D), then set permissions to RW-R-R.
    (using Root Explorer)

    Cheers!

    5x4 (rows x cols) Homescreen Grid

    Hello!

    First: Thanks for your hard and amazing work Smando!
    Second: I like this launcher very much, but I needed an 5(rows) x 4(columns) grid for the homescreens. -> So I've made my own version (from the 1.5.1) which is optimized for 5x4 arrangement (both in homescreens and in app drawer)

    I thought I'd share it!

    *** TouchWizUX [based on 1.5.1 4x5] [5 rows x 4 columns] [Small dock] ***

    Screenshot_2012-07-08-18-12-13.png


    Features:
    5 rows and 4 columns in home screens and app drawer
    No icon labels in dock
    Homescreen icon labels text size was reduced
    Small margin on the sides
    AccuWeatherS3 widget's size was reduced to fit the smaller cells
    Notice: the agenda and calendar widgets are NOT included


    Install manually
    1) Copy the files and folders in the "system" folder to your "root/system" directory
    2) Set the permissions of the newly created .apk and .so files to "rw-r--r--"
    3) Reboot
    4) Choose Touchwiz Home as launcher
    5) Enjoy!
    Download
    MediaFire


    Install from CWM
    I've made a CWM flashable zip (basically the same as Smando's cwm zip in the first post)
    Reboot to CWM, and flash the zip!
    Download (Fixed)
    MediaFire

    See it in action on stock LQ5
    Note: in the video the Accuweather widget's size is not fixed (no rounded corners) I've fixed that later, see the screenshot above (has rounded corners)​

    Hope you like it! Any suggestions or bug reports are welcome!
