    So yea pretty much the title says it. :/ I'm using smart launcher which works great for this phone but it isn't sexy as it use to be.

    I'm looking for a luncher that's way off the chart something like splay or an alt smart launcher like simple but easy. More texted base if you catch my drift. Any ideas ?,

    -edited- I've tried net fronts launcher which is something I liked but not the function of it

    I've been using action launcher on my phone and N7 for awhile now and find it to be great. I've tried most of the others out there and always come back to it. There is now a free version you can try before buying the pro version. One of the best android purchases I've made.

    I like Lightning launcher for its lightweight memory use and customizations. It isnt very intuitive to setup, but once thats done, no need to fuss with it.

    Well my guy its not about sitting there and staring at it. Its about android being the way you want it. Honestly I take a little pride in what I have. If you don't have any suggestions for a launcher, then please don't spam my thread thank you and happy new years :3

    I've tries em both. Not what I was looking for. They are really alt though thank you.

    I wonder if Ubuntu mod is better or there is another one out there somewhere :/ the dev hasn't made no update to it and that's exactly the type of launcher I enjoy. Anyway I'll keep searching and reading . thank you all

    CWM backups usually only get corrupted when they are renamed with special characters or spaces in the name. If you still have that backup try renaming it to something like (steve) lol and see if it works then.

    Alternatively you can also go into the backup and copy to your pc the file named (system.ext4.tar.a). Then remove the (.a) from the end of it and then extract it just like you would with a zip. All your apps will be inside.

    I have used ADW EX launcher in the past. Generally I usually would switch to that launcher fully.

    However I have found the LGE default launcher pretty sufficient for my current needs, so I have not tried ADW EX on the F3.
