Default Alphabetically arranged icons of SGSII

Is there any way to rearranged applications' icons alphabetically in Samsung Galaxy SII?

The first attachment is SGS II Panel, with icons are arranged as per installation dates.
The second attachment is a China made Android where the applications’ icons are in alphabetical order.

I wish to have both phones with alphabetically arranged icons, so please do help me.

Which firmware version you have on SGS-II ? Probably you are using some older version.

Mine is JB 4.1.2 and the app drawer has alphabetically sorted icons already.

If you don't want to upgrade for some reason, you can install some third part launcher like Go Launcher which will allow you to alphabetically sort the app drawer.

ICS 4.0.4 should allow alphabetical sorting.

Go to app drawer, press Menu key, View type and chose your favorite view.

Bro Ahmed,

I have tried the following:
Settings - Applications - Menu key - sort by name.
This setting is for Applications screen only and does not change icons display.

I could not find "View Type" choice.

This cannot be done automatically with touchwiz. 3rd party apps like nova tho you can do this!

JB has this functionality with the new touchwiz and it is the tits!
