Minimalist S3 Launcher is being developed by xXx~~~SHLOK~~~xXx from xda-developers forums. Now I haven't really took the time to completely explore it and compare it to SaM-RoN's due to the huge amount of work the GYA ROM requires. I found this launcher to be very good because it really is very smooth as described on the xda thread.

  • Smooth as Butter
  • Fast and crisp response
  • Beautifull User Interface
  • Calming Colorfull touchwix Wallpapers
  • Widget's Drawer Built in
  • Smooth and Multiple animations for app Drawer and Dekstop
  • Super Customisable

  1. Download zip to your sdcard
  2. Boot into recovery mode, flash CWM if you don't have it integrated
  3. Go to mounts and storage, just make sure /system is mounted
  4. Go back, choose to install zip from sdcard, select choose zip from sdcard
  5. Find the Mini file and choose it, choose Yes when asked
  6. After installation is complete, go back, choose reboot system now
