Galaxy S 4 Weather Widget and Launcher on all JB Devices

Occasionally after rooting and installing an AOSP-derived ROM, you may become nostalgic and want a taste of the OEM-skinned life. OK, we’ll admit it: The main reason why most users root and install a custom ROM is to remove the TouchWizes and Senses that mar our overall Android experience in the first place.

That said, there are some who genuinely enjoy the aforementioned custom UIs. And if you’re one who cares for Samsung’s TouchWiz, specifically the version emulating the look found on the Galaxy S 4, you’re in luck.

XDA Senior Member emwno ported the launcher and Accuweather widget to all devices running Jelly Bean. So far it has been tested and reported working on AOSP-derived ROMs such as CM10 and CM10.1, as well as various manufacturer-skinned releases. It has resources for XXHDPI, XHDPI, HDPI, and MDPI devices. However, if you’re running TouchWiz on an MDPI device, you are currently out of luck. However, we don’t imagine too many users who are already running TouchWiz would be installing this in the first place.

If you’d like to get a little taste of the Galaxy S 4’s interface, head over to the application thread and give emwno’s port a try.
