Modify Launcher2 to Allow 3D Drawer on Any Screen Size or Resolution

Fans of the stock AOSP launchers 3D drawer can now use it on any device, thanks to XDA Senior Member gh123man. Launcher2 doesn’t support the 3D drawer for every screen size or resolution, and devices like the HTC Sensation, HTC EVO 3D, and Droid Bionic (which are qHD resolution) suffer from layout issues with it. While Launcher2 has already been ported to qHD resolution and released on the market by XDA  Recognized Developer Eugene373, this mod will allow you to edit the launcher to display the3D drawer properly on any device or resolution. From the original thread:

Launcher2 has 2 views for the app drawer. A 2D view that works with any phone and is the default as outlined in the source. A 3D view that only works correctly with phones of a 850×480 resolution.
Being i am a lover of the stock android experence i wanted to make this possible on my device.
While I am aware this has been done before on QHD screens, I could not find any source code or documentation on how to make some changes that I wanted to make. This guide should allow you to correct the possition of the 3D app drawer on any device. I am using QHD as an example.

This mod requires knowledge of ADB and downloading source files and some programming experience wouldn’t hurt. It’s definitely worth the effort for cooks who want to include a clean and correctly laid out 3D Launcher2 in their ROMs or users who prefer the AOSP launcher but can’t use the 3D drawer on their device. Head to the original thread here for the complete how-to and be sure to thank gh123man for his write-up!
