Lenovo IdeaDesktop for All ICS Devices
Posted November 11, 2012 at 07:00 pm by Former Writer
Common convention around XDA is to port every launcher to everywhere so that everyone can use it. It gives everyone a chance to experience what the other OEMs offer and, in some cases, other mobile operating systems. Thus, you can try TouchWiz on some HTC devices if you were so inclined. Now, users can give the Lenovo IdeaDesktop a shot.
XDA Senior Member mucus_android posted an APK that gives users the Lenovo IdeaDesktop experience without buying a Lenovo. It is simple to install. Just side-load the APK like any other app and switch the launchers. Some of the features include changing the number of home screens and Lenovo’s custom interface.
So far, it’s been tested on CM9, but should work with any ROM based on ICS. It may also work to some degree on Honeycomb and Jelly Bean, but it is untested right now. So far, users have verified that it indeed works fine for ICS, with many features working perfectly. Additionally, mucus_android has been posting updates of the app as they become available, so if Honeycomb and Jelly Bean don’t work right away, future releases might work better.
