The launcher has new widgets and icons too. You can make your GS3 like a GS5 with a few simple themes and mods. The following guide will teach you where to download and how to install the required themes and S5 applications.


Required Files to Download

2. Then, download the theme which has the icons and all UI design (link).

How to Install:

Step 1 – If you have downloaded the files on your computer, connect your phone to your PC and move all the files to your phones internal memory.

Step 2 – Turn off the phone and go to Recovery Mode. There, install the Galaxy S5 launcher and then the weather widget. After you’ve installed them both, reboot your phone to see if the launcher has been successfully installed.

Step 3 -If launcher has been correctly flashed, go again to Recovery Mode and this time flash the S5 theme file. Then, wipe cache and reboot your phone. It may take a few moments for your Galaxy S3 to boot uo until it has successfully optimized all apps.

Step 4 -Now you will have the new Galaxy S5 launcher and icons. If for any reason you don’t want this design anymore, you can easily go back as there is a backup of your original system files. Enjoy.
