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.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
