Building firmware will be entirely different than building an app.


That's how it should work, but Samsung crippled all of that.

no im not talking about building roms leave that to me
im talking about creating a custom launcher that support the main display and the rear display
but i have this issue "width & height must be > 0" cause the aosp launcher is not created for small screen with high dpi that why it crash

So adapt your launcher to support smaller screens or the cover to support smaller DPI. That's part of building the ROM, so I will leave it to you.

ok thanks , i will try to make a smaller screen launcher as a secondary launcher cause samsung made it clear that 260x512 with 480dpi is pretty good

As a hardwired Galaxy Watch... actually, the Galaxy Watch 5 is 450 x 450, 321 ppi. The Flip3 cover is 302 ppi, making it worse. Galaxy Watch uses 340 dpi.

    Welcome to the original "Z Flip 3 Launcher"
    A complete home experience on the cover screen.
    Available for Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 / 4.


    Want to use your cover as a full screen without the Care+ monthly fees?
    Not willing to pay the full price of a Galaxy Watch for only half of the UI?
    TooUI adds cover screen support for apps, full interactive notifications, widgets, quick toggles, voice launch, custom screen timeout, animated wallpapers, and more.




    See the SamSprung site for setup and usage information​

    In all fairness, I don't think i've explained why the limitations are what they are and should probably have done that a while ago.

    The cover screen is effectively like plugging in a second screen on a previous S or Note series phone. DeX is effectively a secondary home launcher. Since this screen is part of the phone, instead of connected by a cable, a second launcher is used instead of DeX.

    The outer screen supports a second launcher, such as Nova or Smart Launcher 5. It also supports a primary launcher having a secondary launcher activity. Samsung, on the other hand, has disabled this support in favor of a hardcoded launcher that's built into the firmware.

    Samsung's launcher has been broken into the home screen, which is the clock selection, and widget pages. It's been further limited by only allowing certain widgets to be available on the widget pages.

    Being a system app signed by Samsung, they've gone a step further. The widgets allowed must system apps or signed by Samsung, as well. One loophole exists, which is Samsung Health. It does not need to be a system app, since you can install it from Google Play. It also doesn't need to be signed by Samsung for whatever reason. It does, however, still need to match up with the expected widget inside the expected app.

    This app takes advantage of the loopholes by using the specific component name (package / package.activity) of the Samsung Health widget and the package for Samsung Health. Because of this, the app must also be a widget, though. It cannot be a full launcher.

    Widget functionality is limited, but can support launching apps. This is another loophole that uses the widget list support to act as a fake launcher. Since the core launcher behind the widgets is still a launcher, it will launch apps on the cover screen.

    Like a normal Android screen, configuration changes are handled by the current activity being displayed. In this case, that would be whatever app is launched. The widget gets taken along for the ride. To minimize the impact of the launched app, the widget is designed to ignore any configuration changes, which would usually trigger the list to refresh.

    A few unique problems exist because of the cover screen being composed of widgets. One is that they do not follow the expected life cycle of a widget. They are not refreshed when they appear, which is why a swipe is sometimes needed to make list items clickable. Another is that they cannot perform any of the prep an activity provides, such as handling the lock screen. When an activity requests overriding the lock screen, it only extends to the activity and not to any it launched.

    This leaves us with what you see. A widget that exploits a bunch of loopholes within the limitations of the widget framework.

    SamSprung was released one year ago today as the first app launcher for the cover screen. With nearly 2000 new downloads per version and over 800 builds released, we have reached over 1 million downloads. Cheers!

    Done. Now you can hide / unhide apps for the widget with a long press on the item (in the app settings).

    For now, the plan is to keep working on some things I don't want to advertise for fear Samsung will go and ruin them before I find answers.
