I used the FP1 image to sideloaded the launcher apk. I cannot remember any problems with the widgets. Not sure if this helps. Flipping through the Apps/Widgets was pretty fast, that’s all I can remember.
Are there other apps on the FP1 that need to be reinstalled from the image? I can’t remember right now.
I use the FP launcher daily on 4.4.4 and I have lots of widgets on all the desktop without any problem.
I also have gravitybox installed and it works very well although I noticed, after Xposed framework installation, some random strange behaviors like home button long pressing not responding always as expected (it seems to react with 1-2 seconds delay), but I didn’t investigate deeper if it is the launcher or Xposed or gravity box or…who knows?
There is a zip file on xda which fixes this problem with the standard Xposed installer, I included it in my system backup flashable zip (from which I took the FP launcher I posted) and I’m able to install xposed after flashing 4.4.4. If you’re interested I can provide you another flashable zip file tomorrow
Here you are
I don’t remember well which operations I did, but I used an APK provided by “SolarWarez” XDA user, then I used Titanium Backup to get a flashable zip file.
If I remember correctly you have to install the XPosed installer, then you should flash this zip which should substitute the system’s app_process file with the XPosed modified one, and then this second zip which should set the permissions and install another part (XPosedBridge).
BTW: you should configure XPosed installer to use “manual recovery” installation method.
Hoping it helps you and if you can please provide a step by step howto in order to help other users because I did so many tries I cannot provide simple instructions
Thank you Bye!
P.S. (both pwd are ‘djdas’ without quotes)
Do you know there’s a security alert for your site? susceptible to contain virus etc?
Tried… doesn’t work… I did download you 2 zip files. When I try to flash the first one I get the message that I should press “install/update” in xposed but this is not possible (it’s not available to press). The second zip works fine but I guess that without the first one it’s worthless.
So can you please try to remember what you did? pleeeaaaase!
It worked! just with this XDA thread… I uninstalled xposed installer before and reinstalled from the link,
Now I’m so happy with my FP1 I may come back to it and put aside my FP2 … One of the main reasons I bought it was that FP1 was stuck at 4.2. Now with this great job everyone is doing here… I don’t see why I would change from my FP1 that I simply
Yes but my site is hosted on Godaddy and AFAIK I don’t have access to webserver config files nor will be able to install the necessary programs in order to use “let’s encrypt”.
On top of all as I use my site only for ownCloud purposes, I don’t want to spend too much time in SSL stuffs given the very poor users I give access to
Uhm I don’t know, I didn’t try the ZIP on phones other than my FP1U so I can’t tell anything about.
For sure if the recovery software needs a signed ZIP it won’t work, this is why I was able to create it (and other ZIPs for personal purposes) only after flashing CWM.
It’s based on the pretty old Launcher2 so I’m pretty sure it will work with a S3. But maybe it uses some MTK only feature in the background (don’t think so, but I saw a mediatek-framework somewhere, but searching through the git I don’t see it being used).
Best way to find out? Use adb (install|uninstall) and just create a backup before.
Well, I created the ZIP only because I wanted the Launcher to be a system app, but you can simply extract the APK from the ZIP, copy to your phone and install as a normal app, if it doesn’t work simply uninstall it.
