Installing a custom launcher on an Android device is much like shopping for a new car. There’s a lot of features to compare, a lot of styles to see, and some may prefer one brand over another. In most cases, this is no big deal, as most custom launchers are available in the Google Play Store. There are a few cases where this isn’t the case, and users must wait for a launcher to be ripped and re-released. One such launcher is the LG 3.0 Launcher.
While the launcher is available in some capacity on most other LG phones, users of non-LG devices who still want the launcher are left in the dark. XDA Forum Member asdfzz and XDA Recognized Contributor and News Writer mustangtim49 are looking to help these users out with a universal LG 3.0 Launcher port for all devices running ICS.
The launcher, as well as the LG Weather Widget, are available for download in apk format for users to install. So far, there appear to only be a few minor issues, including a force close on boot. Otherwise, both work fine and are worth checking out.
