Steps to install the launcher
1. Download the apk below
2. Clear Stock launcher "Touchwiz Home" data and cache from settings.
3. Install apk
4. If launcher crashes, clear data and cache again.
5. Press Home button it should work.

May work on other Touchwiz based ROMs as well. Try at your own risk. Won't trip your Knox though.

You can uninstall by going to settings - Touchwiz home - Three dot menu on left and select uninstall updates.

Nice!! Thanks. It worked like charm. Don't know how to uninstall it though (as the uninstall updates buttons has been long gone since months) but I'll keep it for a while

There is a conflict between this launcher and Facebook Messenger chat bubbles. They go missing once collapsed but notifications say that they are still present. Once uninstalled this launcher all went back to normal

I can't install it and when I try pushing it to system/priv app it won't allow me to change permissions. Any ideas? Would really like to try it out
