As the new versions of Android keep on coming, so do newer versions of OEM software and skins. With HTC’s release of Sense 4.0 and Motorola always tinkering with the Motoblur software, it’s only natural for Samsung to follow up with a newer iteration of what could be their best yet, TouchWiz 4.5.
Most Samsung devices, however, don’t come equipped with 4.5 out of the box, and many users would like to experience it on their own devices. For those running the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II SGH-I777, you not only have the ability to run TouchWiz 4.5, but now you can run it on a variety of ROMs.
XDA Senior Member crazyagg has been maintaining a thread that features a number of stock apk files from TouchWiz 4.5 builds for users to install and use to experience. While there are a few apk files there to download separately, the full ICS apk zip file has over 60 ICS apks from TouchWiz 4.5, and users can basically pick and choose any or all parts of 4.5 to install.
While the complete package zip is not recovery-flashable, all the pieces are there for those wishing to use them as a base for development or to simply try out 4.5. If 4.5 doesn’t tickle your fancy, crazyagg has also uploaded the stock apks for anyone who needs to revert.
