Learn How to Mod the Espier Launcher

The iPhone look-a-like launcher has been on the rise as of late, grabbing up between 100,000 to 500,000 downloads according to the latest Android Market numbers. With it beginning to be competitive with other well known and popular launchers like ADW, LauncherPro and GO Launcher, people finding a way to modify and theme it was only a matter of time.

XDA Senior Member supetawesomedude has written a step by step tutorial on how your average user can modify the Espier Launcher to their liking. The guide covers a few features, including:

-How to change icons in espier launcher
-How to change page indicators
-How to change dock
-How to change notification bubble
-How to add custom icons (for apps not natively themed by espier launcher) RECENTLY EDITED
-How to install onto phone

The only recommended software to get started is apktool and although apktool is compatible with more than just Linux, it’s recommended that users perform the steps in Linux.

If modding the Espier Launcher and giving it some themed love is something you’d like to try out, you can find the full tutorial, links to the recommended software and all the usual information in the original thread.
