I uploaded a SFOS 3.4.0 compatible version to the webcatalog. I plan to removed it as soon as Coderus updates his version.

I would be very happy if you do the patch for I have been using it for a long time and could take it with me from the previous versions. So I was able to activate it under and it ran without problems. I had to do a factory reset and can no longer install it in Thanks a lot.

I confirm that the Launcher Combined DOES NOT install in SFOS (Koli) even yhough it claims to be compatible. I use patchmanager3 to install but any attempt results in an error message.

HI Coderus, dont give up adaptation , This patch is a must, Would it be possible to give choice between the stock ''within'' folder page view and the new full page style for the format.Not the openning/closing animation and all , including background , all that is fine. Not that I dont like a full page display at all, but in term of reachability with one hand when it's a folder containing multiple icons spanning for more than the page size  it still hard to reach bottom icons app. We need both hands. The sailfish stock format (all app icons comprise in the center portion of the page with the 1 quarter of the size for the headder space and the other blank quarter space at the bottom. that way it is easy to reach and scrool the center section. I include links to screenshots to better understand.   :

patch applied on folder with multiple apps icons


folder view, pre patch aplication, ( real drab but better reacheability)

Hello coderus,

I have installed the current Sailfish-OS, the launcher combined patches cannot be reinstalled. Can the patches be adapted to the current Sailfish-OS?
Thanks a lot!

Hallo, could you create an update for SFOS 3 please? It is the best patch ever and should integrate in SFOS. Thanks in advance

Figured it out - 'snapMode: ListView.NoSnap', and 'highlightRangeMode: ListView.NoHighlightRange' did it.

Right - sorry, my comment was meant to say that the info in web catalog shows that the patch is not compatible with version less than 2.2, (but it used to be, and now even older versions don't work on less than 2.2...), so I'm just wondering if I could hack a way to get same features on my 2137...

coderus's picture

i have no idea why author of patch port to removed it

levone1's picture

Oh - is that what it was ... Sorry, I guess I didn't pay much attention. Anyway, is there some file I could modify to get scroll without pages? Thanks 

levone1's picture

info in web catalog shows not compatible with >2.2 anymore. Any way to modify files to make it work, or, does anyone know how to create the 'scroll without pages' tweak happen manually? That's my main interest ...

coderus's picture

there is proper patch in webcatalog for 2.2

sdiconov's picture

Does NOT work in SFOS .
Installed this on a Jolla C in search of 4 icon style folders. Options in the launcher settings applet have no effect. No additional folder style either.
Is there an isolated 4 icon style folders patch without applet or any other bells and whistles?

Where has coderus gone..?? None of his patches/apps have received any updated since long. Can anyone else takeover his patches...?? Seems like he is out of business.
