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.

Fixed XML’s to support larger screen
Adjust size for workspace/edit screens
Set Launcher workspace to 6 rows/ 6 columns (fits good)
Set appdrawer to 6×6 layout as well
Adjusted to allow 5 shortcuts on bottom bar

A fantastic addition to the collection of content being produced for and from the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab over the past few days. If you’d like to get this on your Galaxy Tab, head on over to the original thread and leave the developer a delightful message of thanks!
