i figured this would be best set in the themes section as it is designed to help people "customize" thus theme there personal device to there own preference, I also have this listed under the Vibrant section but since this will work with a large range of devices I felt i should post it more openly here.

I get alot of questions regarding the theme in the screenshots

I'm no longer getting the options under "Launcher Settings" for turning off labels and disabling the scrolling wallpaper. Also the widget clocks are 24 hour again. I'm on a Fascinate running 1.10.28

Others have reported no problems with ES Mod so I figured this was the place to speak up. Hopefully you, or Rick S can whip up a fix.

I'm still using it, so thanks for keeping it up for us.

Andy and I discussed the issue with icon labels and wallpaper scrolling, as i had noticed the issue myself, and the problem that happened is the Extended settings mod also has a custom Launcher2.apk, mine overrode it and that why we lost the settings, I have a fix for it this week and i will have it released this evening after Extended settings gets uploaded.

so this will possibly work on the .28 defx build for the DX?
Droid X? 480 x 854
hmm It will work, i'm just unsure about whether you will experience Overlap. I only have a Galaxy S 480 x 800 for testing. however if you run into any issues email me your stock launcher2.apk and i can make you a 5x4 with Dock

Is this mod the same as the mod which enables scrollable widgets like android pro widgets?

yes and no. I use the Launcher2.apk from the extended settings mod as Base so yes this should allow the use of Scrollable widgets.

however the purpose of this mod is to increase the grid layout to 5x4 with the option of removing the dock.

extended settings by Andy Thompson is the mod your thinking of.

It`s not work on my sgs2 :(
It works fine on the sgsII, Give me more details on your particular issue so that we can troubleshoot it.
also Verify the following
Your Installation of Miui Matches the Mod you are installing
You "Mounted" /System in the Mounts menu in CWR
You removed icons from your Dock prior to Installing
You Restored any/all backup apps prior to installation

You mind posting a flashable 4x4 WHS? Just in case anyone wants to restore their launcher to default. :)
stock launcher is located in your miui flashable zip file. just push it into /system/apps.

screen resolutions differ so it's best that you just keep a backup on your phone/pc or pull it straight from your rom. (and i'm kinda lazy lol)
