Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon.

ADW Launcher for CM7 Development Playground
We know that you are all crazy about tweaking the living lights out of your devices. All in all, mods are a big part of our culture and as such, we are always happy to see threads like the one that XDA member TheMasterBaron has created, showcasing his mods for ADW Launcher. The dev is basically doing some trial and error with the UI in an attempt to make it work better in the CM7 roms. Improvements are mostly focused on aesthetics and functionality without major changes to the launcher itself, so you may feel it becomes easier to manage without losing much from the original. The best part? This is fully reversible, so to get back to your own set up, simply uninstall the apk and voila!
Please leave some feedback and suggestions for the dev. Any contributions are also welcome.
I’m starting this thread to test out modifications I’ve made to ADW.Launcher to see if the features are worth of me trying to merge them into CM7.
This is for CyanogenMod 7, I offer no help getting this to work on anything else.
This version is an update to the ADW.Launcher that already in installed on CM7 so you will keep all your existing settings.
You can also uninstall this version at any time and ADW.Launcher will revert back to the original ADW.Launcher.
You can find more information in the original thread.
