Samsung Galaxy S III Launcher Ported to any ICS ROM

Not long ago we brought you news of HTC Sense 4.0 being ported to the Galaxy S II. This is one of the few times that HTC Sense has made its way onto a Samsung device. Porting Samsung’s Touchwiz, however, often takes a little less time and effort. As such, it was only a matter of time before users could enjoy the launcher experience of the Galaxy S III on any device.

XDA Senior Member rani9990 has released a beta port of the popular device’s launcher for use on any device running Ice Cream Sandwich. It is easy to install as well. Users only need to put the apk file onto their devices and manually move it to /system/app using their favorite root explorer. The port has been confirmed working on a number of devices, including:

LG Nitro HD
Samsung Captivate
Motorola Droid
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S
HTC Sensation
Xperia Pro
Samsung Galaxy S Plus
EVO 4G LTE
HTC EVO 3D
LG-P990
HTC Desire
HTC Rezound
HTC One S

Since it is a beta, it’s no surprise that some users are reporting the occasional problem—nothing too serious, just a few quirks here and there. For additional information, go to the original thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
