    Hi Henriks,
    could you possible make a backup-file of the launcher settings and post it here or send it to me?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've been inspired to try Squarehome, but after playing about (and buying the pro version) I can't get the highlight colour to change from that hideous orange... am I missing a settings page somewhere?

    Edit: Spoke to the dev, turns out it's one of the few non-customisable things. Oh well, back to hacking metro...

    Finally... managed to hack the original launcher. The latest Minix Metro will corrupt if you disassemble it, however TVgeek have totally ripped it off for their launcher, and it's safe to unpack. From there it took about three weeks of experimenting, tweaking XMLs, android IDs, and a lot of PNG editing!


    Edit: Unfortunately I posted this prematurely. Launcher works on the compiler environment and on a old M8 test box, but won't work on the Minix. I'm guessing it's a conflict with the manifests as technically uses the same code base as the original launcher... I'm damned if it'll beat me though!

    Hi everyone!

    This is my U1 device. Bought it few weeks ago and hated default launcher. :) So I've customised it a little with wife's help. :)

    Is anyone having any problems w/ SquareHome Launcher (old version) and Pushbullet (and AutoRemote) messages not going through after a period of inactivity? I noticed a while ago that my Minix X8-h stopped getting pushbullet notifications unless pushbullet was running in the foreground. Same for AutoRemote. I did a factory restore and I was able to get pushbullet messages and AutoRemote messages again.

    It was working for months until I re-installed squarehome launcher. Now if I send an AutoRemote message, it doesn't come through unless I interact with the minix somehow, thus breaking the automation process. I need to test further with pushbullet, as it just worked a minute ago, but there has been no period of inactivity since I just tested w/ AutoRemote.

    Regarding SquareHome 2 launcher. What does tablet mode setting change? Apart from making everything big I'm not clear on what it does.

    After a few days of diddling around, with inspiration from this thread, here's my first finished layout:


    Thanks guys! I've had the box for months, but it never struck me I could switch out that annoying launcher.

    Hi @incogni... which launcher is this?

    I'm using the SquareHome.Tablet launcher - transparent theme, 5 rows, 150% icon size (don't remember what else I changed in the settings).
    - "AmazingText" for the Minix title.
    - "Digital clock xperia" for the time and weather.
    - The Kodi shortcut is a logo set as tile background, with invisible .png image as icon.
    - "Scrollable News" for the RSS feed (long press -> divide to make navigation possible without the airmouse).
    - Icon packs are "lines" and "pasty".

    Spent hours just messing around with different settings on everything so not sure I could do a proper step-by-step, but feel free to ask.

    Something more minimalistic...

    (SquareHome.Tablet w/High Glossy theme, Invisible Widget for spacing, and Argent and Tiny White icons.)
