Easy to Use Android Launcher?

33 posts in this topic

Perfect! We have found a winning launcher. Problem solved. Sucks about the lack of being able to update it but oh well. I guess I wanted to play with google now on her phone for my own selfish reasons really :D

The Star N800 Mini has a MTK6575 CPU which is a Cortex A9 meaning it's ARMv7, so try downloading that version and giving it a try.

MIUI still looks like Apple tho? I tried MIUI on my Vibrant and was to Apple like. But that was a while ago.

I gather that's a good thing in this situation. I tend to agree with you, but it's still nice for some people though.

<div>Most knock offs have "vanilla specifications" eg. they adhere to a certain spec from a certain phone, I highly doubt it was the S2 though. What i'm saying is, most ROMS work with almost any device albeit "unsopported" Eg. if the dev didn't have any test input from X device, then don't expect him/her to have a specific answer.</div>

<div>All in all, from my little android experience, it's pretty hard to brick a phone with an open bootloader.</div>

<div>Anyway, JOIN TEH forum!</div>

holy html, batman! :p Another vote for holo launcher here!

Launcher 7 ( http://goo.gl/I0DZL ) is pretty cool if it's easy you want. On the up/downside, it does make your android phone to look like a windows phone.

+/-

1) + it's easy

2) + it's fast and not a memory hog

3) + it's stable

4) +/- windows phone lookalike --> if you're into widgets, it's not for you. But live tiles work nicely.

Please be careful what you suggest. This is all very wrong. Most knock offs don't have any relation to any specific phone. They are typically made by very very cheap components, and rarely have support of many custom ROMs, if for no other reason than a lack of interest from developers.

And ROMs certainly do NOT work on just any device. ROMs are custom built for a specific device, and flashing them on a difference device is a good way to do your best at bricking your phone, though that usually is pretty hard because you can usually get in and reflash the right software again.

I've seen chinese knock offs flashed with CM, But I do agree, it's something really time-consuming.

Well, I joined and posted a question. Their stringent rules for new users are quite annoying. I couldn't even link directly to the product page of the phone!

Also, whats with all the html?

Also, OMG they droped the price of the phone by ?20!!!! Annoying.

I've not idea I stopped caring... server hiccups I suppose... I dunno :p

Nova Launcher is the best.

I'm not sure there is a one best launcher for everyone. We all need different things and need to access our info in different ways. I've found several are good.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a way to back up my device!

I managed to root it but I can't install clockworkmod or TWRP, therefor I can't even install the Google Now mod either :s

Also, what on earth is a deodexed ROM?

Also, if I need a special deodexed ROM (Whatever that is), I surely can't use this mod either way because I can't find any ROMs specific to it to begin with :/

Oh... yeah, you're probably right. I forgot it had to be flashed in recovery. Been a while since I'd messed with it.
