Regarding download links, Whiskey103 will temporarily fix all links and they will stay up for a week or so.

After that everything will be taken down and so will the thread. (No links = no need to keep the thread open)

Thanks a lot for all the support!

    Home Screen Saver

    What it is?

    Recently me and others have been suffering from a weird bug. After a normal reboot some of my widgets gets removed from the homescreen!
    So after each reboot I have to set up my homescreen again...

    I did some research and found out that it only happened to 3rd party apps. (asec apps)

    And since I'm a script freak I started to build my "workaround solution". :p

    After you have flashed "HomeScreenSaver", a script will be executed at reboot. This script will backup your entire homescreen.
    Then when your phone reboots again, another script will be executed and restore your homescreen.

    With other words, no more missing widgets after reboot!

    When to use it?

    • If your 3rd party widgets or app shortcuts keeps falling off the homescreen after a normal reboot or shutdown

    How to use it?

    • Download the "Script" and copy the zip to your sdcard.
    • Reboot into recovery and flash it just like a ROM. (no need to wipe anything)
    • When done, Reboot.
    • Set up all your widgets and try a reboot.
    • Done!

    This is amazing! Great thought! :D

    Sent from my One X running Blade v4.5.0. At a mere 250 MB, with tons of AROMA Mods and tweaks, this, is what you want.
    Another masterpiece from Patrics83 !
