TouchWiz 4 for the Galaxy Tab
There have been some interesting developments in the Samsung Galaxy S II universe over the past few days, most notably XDA member coolbho3000‘s guide to overclocking the device to a stable 1.5Ghz and an insane 2.0Ghz. But XDA member mssmison has come along and ported something from the Galaxy S II over for all of you Galaxy Tab users.
TouchWiz4, the launcher on the Galaxy S II, has been ported for use on the Galaxy Tab on any deodexed Gingerbread ROM’s. The installation package is for Clockwork Mod 3 and can be installed quite easily.
Not only has it been ported, but mssmison hasn’t forgotten to edit a few things to optimise it specifically for use on the Galaxy Tab, including an edited XML file to support the larger screen, the ability to set the workspace to use 6 rows and 6 columns and the ability to add 5 shortcuts to the bottom bar.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
