Install Galaxy S5 Launcher & Weather Widget on Galaxy S3

Download and install Samsung Galaxy S5 launcher and Accuweather widget on your Galaxy S3. GS3 users are enjoying Galaxy S5 applications and features too, not only GS4 users.

This time, you can enjoy the launcher and weather widget on your S3. The interface is almost the same as on the original device and it has all the options and features you can expect.

You can select from two variants: 4×5 which has 4 icons horizontally and 5 icons vertically as well 5×5 which has 5 icons vertically and horizontally. You also get the Galaxy S5 icon pack which means the icons will look like the icons on the S5.

If you don’t like the regular weather widget, you can download a transparent one. Weather widgets are 75%, 50% and 25% transparent. You also get the kitkat-like status bar with the white icons.

  1. After i installed it i get a black background and i have no task manager and statusbar anymore
    Can you help me please ?

      • I got the same problem on my S3… black background and task manager/status bar disappeared… I didnt wipe cache/dalvik before installing files, but I did this after installing…

          • That isn’t normal. You can always make a full backup, factory reset the phone and then try it again. Probably something installed is conflicting with the theme.

          • I will try to make a full wipe and install everything from zero when I get some free time. Thanks anyway!

  2. Can you please provide the steps how to install it? I dont know what “flash in recovery” means. I am new to rooting. Please help ASAP.

    • Go to Recovery. Use this tutorial

      Then in Recovery, go to Install Zip file, select the file you downloaded and click OK.

      • Ok check this!
        I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 International Model. (ROOTED)
        When I go to recovery mode a black screen with fallen android in the backgroung and some options on it. Options are:

        reboot system now
        apply update from ADB
        apply update from external storage
        wipe data/factory reset
        wipe cache partition
        apply update from cache

        there is nothing like install zip file in recovery mode. What do i do to bring that option?
