SGS3 and LG Optimus UI 3 Launchers for the Galaxy S II

We bring you news quite frequently about launchers ported to various devices. It’s always a good time and gives users a chance to check out what other devices are running. The Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 can now not only run the Samsung Galaxy S III TouchWiz launcher with the Galaxy Note grid, but LG UI 3.0 as well.

XDA Forum Member endrit9 posted the TouchWiz UX launcher for all to use. Using it is pretty easy, as it requires a simply APK installation. Some of the elements are a little harder to get, however. For instance, to get the Galaxy S III icons, you have to use desktop visualizer and put them in manually. However, you’ll end up with the Galaxy S III TouchWiz launcher up and running.

For LG UI 3.0, XDA Forum Member Gyebro has ported it specifically to the Galaxy S II from the original mod by XDA Senior Member Impact7. A few of the features include:

5×4 homescreen grid (instead of the original 4×4)
Slightly modified weather widget
Google search bar and “add to homescreen” button removed from the top
Fixed unread messages count, now works with samsung messaging
And of course all the features that the launcher offers originally (amazing screen scroll effects, fast and smooth, LG themes – see original thread, today display on calendar icon, and much more..

The installation process is nothing we haven’t seen before. Put the APK in /system/app and change the permissions. There are also some optional APKs to install if you want more of the LG look and feel.

If you’re looking to try out a new launcher, check out either the Galaxy S III TouchWiz Launcher or the LG UI 3.0 thread.
