CyanogenMod 9 is slowly coming together behind closed doors, while we all wait anxiously for it. Every now and then we get a peek behind the curtains of the mad men that bring us CM and today is one of those peeks, and boy is it a good one. We get to see the official Ice Cream Sandwich launcher for CM9 and you can download it and take it for a spin, as long as you realize this is still an alpha build.
The Trebuchet Launcher is made for 4.0.3 devices only, but other than that only needs root to run. As with most Cyanogen, the focus is on customization. Here is a list of a few of the settings that are already working:
- Custom number of Homescreens
- Enable/Disable Persistent Search Bar
- Separated Apps/Widgets in Drawer
- Resize Any Widget
- Show and Fade Scrolling Indicator in Homescreen and Drawer
- Enable/Disable Auto-Rotate
- Drawer Apps Sorting (Title, Install Date)
There are more planned features, like infinite scrolling and screen transitions between the app drawer and the home screens. There is flashable .zip and also an .apk that you can replace in your /system apps for however you would like to install it, but be warned; you should make a backup. Head on over to the XDA thread for the instructions.
