Samsung Galaxy S III Launcher Ported to Galaxy S II

With the Galaxy S III firmware leak, it was expected to see some of it ported to other devices. It began with the porting and removal of S-Voice, only to see its triumphant return. With the trouble that has brought, perhaps its time to check out a less dramatic, but still totally awesome port. Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 owners now have access to the Galaxy S III TouchWiz launcher.

XDA Forum Member Smando has brought the SGS3 TouchWiz Launcher port to the Galaxy S II. The launcher looks really nice and is pretty slick. Unfortunately, it only works on Samsung based ROMs, so those running AOSP can’t taste the Galaxy S III goodness just yet.

The launcher comes in a recovery-flashable update.zip, so installing is a breeze. Users then have two options: They can either choose the stock launcher with a 4×5 layout—4 columns and 5 rows—or a modified one that’s 5×5. The release has already received some updates to get some things fixed such as the layout of the widgets page. However, users will still get force closes on some 4×4 widgets, so it’s not perfect quite yet. This is still a great way for Galaxy S II users to check out the Galaxy S III’s software goodness.

For additional information and downloads, hit up the original thread.

OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase

OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
