AnaKonda for Epic 4G Touch Combines Xperia Launcher with TouchWiz ICS

XDA has a long history of developers searching out ways to bring key features and/or software from one device to another, and hopefully adding value to the user in the process. In that same vein XDA Senior Member VeNuM has put together a pretty slick ICS ROM for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch.

The ROM is based on the latest “stable” leak from Sprint and Samsung, and features the Sony Xperia Launcher instead of Samsung’s TouchWiz launcher. VeNuM is calling it AnaKonda. It is based on build FC24 (Android 4.0.3). The release brings many enhancements and fixes such as Odex Me and a spectacular theme from XDA Recognized Themer dazednconfused.

Here’s what VenuM had to say about his motivation for this project:

I’ve been looking for something “different” for our Samsung devices for some time and thought it would be both challenging and rewarding to give the new launcher a go… Plus dazednconfused had demoed a great looking orange and green theme that I thought made the system distinct. Really though, it’s about giving back and sharing with the community. We have a great developer and user base on the ET4G and I’m just happy I can contibute to the community as a whole…

If you fancy trying something different, check out the ROM thread for more information.
