How To Install Motorola MOTOBLUR Ice Cream Sandwich Home Launcher On Any Android Phone
Custom launchers make the modification of Android devices a joy to behold. Having said that, not all are as smooth as they should be, and the unnecessarily bloated ones are considered to be more of a hindrance than a positive implementation.
MOTOBLUR was once a prime example of such a launcher. It used to be an OEM skin, and one which the masses decided was far too large and counter-productive to be considered a decent launcher. Gratefully, MOTOBLUR has been put on a diet, and now offers a far slicker, more seamless experience which demands a re-entrance into the spotlight.
As is nearly always the case with Android modding and development, today’s scoop comes courtesy of the thriving XDA Developers forum, or more specifically, member RockoDev. He has created two Ice Cream Sandwich-ready launchers, allowing users to enjoy the MOTOBLUR experience without the requirement of a Motorola device.
Both launchers are based closely on the files found in the Motorola DROID RAZR. Installation is pretty simple, and if you’re running Android 4.0 or higher, we have compiled a short, concise walkthrough which requires downloading two .apk files and installing them via ADB push or simply flashing the .zip file.
