Install the Android 2.3 Gingerbread launcher / home screen on your 2.2 device

Want some more awesome Gingerbread porting? Of course you do! Last night, we showed you how to install the Gingerbread keyboard on your rooted device, but today, we’ve got something else. The Gingerbread luncher / home screen has been ported by PaulOBrien of MoDaCo, and released it in the market. We can expect to see more and more pieces and parts from Gingerbread being ported in the coming days and weeks, so be sure to check this out. Gallery below.

You can check out the launcher in our app database here, or scan the qr code below. Remember, aside from any changes made to make it compatible with Android 2.2, this launcher is totally stock. Hit the break for the gallery and links, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!

    I have a DInc running 2.2 rooted w/unrevoked. I have been running ADW, and this breaks the ADW launcher. I have “home switcher” that lets me switch between ADW, LauncherPro, Sense, and now GB. GB gives me no apps in the app drawer. Any ideas??

    I commented too soon. A reboot fixed both problems.

    Thank you for Android Market. One more thing I would like to add. Android 2.3 version of the keyboard, the 2.2 version can be used. I’ve tried their mobile phone. Worked.

    I prefer Zeam launcher above this launcher… it’s much better just install one, change a few settings, try it for a day or so. Then install the other and do the same. Wanna bet you’ll stick to Zeam!
