Samsung Galaxy S I9000 Gets Jelly Bean SuperLauncher+

We recently brought you news of how to minimize visible home screen redraw on the Galaxy S III. For those who haven’t noticed this, the issue occurs when you return to the home screen and there’s a slight lag before your widgets reappear on screen. Most Android devices suffer from noticeable redraw, and now, Samsung Galaxy S I9000 have a modification aimed at reducing its occurrence.

Called SuperLauncher+, the mod forces the launcher to remain in memory, which in turns lessens the chance of visible redraw. As XDA Senior Member mnazim explains:

I was searching for ways to keep the android home launcher in memory like many applications have options when I stumbled over this MOD. This thread is to provide Super Strength Launcher+ other MODs for multiple Jelly Bean ROMs out there that suffer from Launcher redraws, Micro lags in the UI etc. due to the low RAM constraints on the GT-i9000.

Basically it is the Launcher that makes a big difference in the overall smoothness of the ROM. There was a build.prop tweak in ROMs up till GB that helped make the HOME launcher stay in memory no matter how much free RAM was available as below

The explanation continues to show that these mods were easily made on Gingerbread and prior, as forcing the launcher to remain in memory was a simple build.prop edit. After Gingerbread though, these settings were hard coded into the services.jar, which makes the mod a little more difficult to apply. Applying the mod is as easy as simply flashing a zip in recovery. Currently, the mod is only compatible with CyanogenMod 10.

For additional info, head over to the original thread.
