For those of you who want to have multiple grid options higher than Samsung’s TouchWiz default maximum setting of 5×6, you can grab the GRX TouchWiz mod if you have a rooted Samsung device with a custom ROM. The GRX TouchWiz MOD APK will give you a fully-modded TouchWiz launcher capable of giving you higher 6×6, 7×7, 8×8, and 9×9 grid sizes on your home and app drawer.

For those of you who want to take advantage of Pixel 2’s HDR+ processing capabilities on your Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus or any other Android smartphone, you can now use the latest ported Google HDR+ camera which has been tested to work on the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus also. Currently I have tested many other devices including Galaxy S8, S8+, S7, S7 Edge, LG G6, LG V20, and they all work well. This APK should also work on all Android smartphones except for a few. It doesn’t hurt to try so just try it first and you have nothing to lose since you can simply uninstall it if it does not work out for you.

I’ve tested the Google HDR+ camera APK on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and S8(Snapdragon) for about a week, they both work flawless and bring additional HDR mode to non-Pixel phones. If you need extra 1-2 stops of dynamic range on your photos, Google HDR+ mode will give you exactly that(and make sure you have it on when using the camera!), bright areas exposured correctly.
Magisk Manager app was removed from the Play Store for some odd reason(maybe Google didn’t like root apps) and you will need to now install it manually. But it is very easy to install, simply download the Magisk Manager APK file here and install.
Now, we do recommend getting the version 4.3.3 which has Magisk Hide feature while the newer version 5.0.1 beta on APKMirror.com is not recommended as it doesn’t have Magisk Hide feature and the beta version is not as good in our opinion.
Probably one of the coolest features of Galaxy S8 is the new weather widget. While there are a lot of copy cats that have been popping up lately on the Play Store, you can just grab the real Galaxy S8 weather widget APK below and use the real thing.
Now, this should work on any Galaxy phone running latest Android 7.0 Nougat and may also work on older Android 6.0 Marshmallow (we haven’t tried it yet). The new Galaxy S8 weather widget can be resized easily and made smaller or much bigger so definitely check it out as it looks really cool on my Galaxy S7 Edge.
For those of you who who want to enjoy Samsung Galaxy S8 AOD(Always-On-Display) features on your Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, you can use the Galaxy S8 AOD APK file below. This will also work on any older Samsung devices running either S7 or S7 Edge ported custom ROM (e.g. If you have Note 5 with S7 Edge ported ROM, you can use this).
For those of you who want to experience the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 launcher and Bixby on your Samsung phone, you can grab the Galaxy S8 Launcher and Bixby APK below.
Now, for those of you with a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, you do not need root to install this, simply install both APK files and you should be good to go so long as you are on latest Android 7.0 Nougat.
