Early Alpha Build Of Official CM9 Launcher Up For Download, Customization For All 4.0.3 Devices


CyanogenMod 9 has released an alpha build launcher for Ice Cream Sandwich. While we all wait for an official release of the final product it’s nice to see they released this for a test drive. Hit the link to read about the details and some pics;

The Trebuchet Launcher is made for 4.0.3 devices only, but other than that only needs root to run. As with most Cyanogen, the focus is on customization. Here is a list of a few of the settings that are already working:

  • Custom number of Homescreens
  • Enable/Disable Persistent Search Bar
  • Separated Apps/Widgets in Drawer
  • Resize Any Widget
  • Show and Fade Scrolling Indicator in Homescreen and Drawer
  • Enable/Disable Auto-Rotate
  • Drawer Apps Sorting (Title, Install Date)

There are more planned features, like infinite scrolling and screen transitions between the app drawer and the home screens. There is flashable .zip and also an .apk that you can replace in your /system apps for however you would like to install it, but be warned; you should make a backup. Head on over to the XDA thread for the instructions.
