galaxy note 5 launcher apk

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has seen an increase in popularity compared to the Galaxy Note 4. Although it has the same screen size and display resolution, the Galaxy Note 5 comes with improved processor, more efficient curved design and redesigned S Pen which now can be clicked.

Even though users are interested in the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung decided to limit the number of countries where the device will get launched, together with the Galaxy S6 edge+. At the moment, many European users will not be able to buy the Galaxy Note 5 or S6 edge+.

If you are planning on buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, you can make the waiting process easier by installing some of the Note 5 apps on your current phone. We already have the complete Galaxy Note 5 stock wallpaper pack, but now developers have released even more apps.

One of the most requested apps from the Note 5 is the TouchWiz launcher. Even though the  TouchWiz firmware is similar to the one on the Galaxy S6, the Note 5 has new icons and some added functionality. The icons have round corners and complement the new UI.

How To Install Galaxy Note 5 TouchWiz Launcher APK

  1. Download Galaxy Note 5 TouchWiz Launcher APK: S6_TouchWiz_Note5_Albe95.zip
  2. Extract the zip file. You will get a folder called TouchWizHome_ZERO_MR1 with the launcher APK and lib files.
  3. Using a file explorer with root capabilities, go to system/priv-app/TouchwizHome_MR1, make a backup of the current APK file and replace it with the new APK. If it force closes, also copy the new libs.
  4. Reboot your phone.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 TouchWiz launcher will appear. If you do not like it or if you fail to make the launcher work, you can restore the original launcher on your phone.

    will this work on galaxy E7 ?

    • The Galaxy E7 has a different screen resolution from the Note 5 and S6, but you can give it a shot. Always make a backup of your current launcher first.

        Can that brick my phone ?

        • No, only the launcher won’t work. Install another launcher first, like Google Now to have a spare.

    now I can’t restore the copy I made, it stills appear the easy mode in my home screen.

    • If you can’t restore the copy you have made, then flash a stock firmware with the same Android version as your current firmware. No apps or data will be lost.
