This patch is greatly missed on Newest SFOS :(

Works nicely under SFOS 2.1.0

I give me the error "Failed to install patch". Where am I wrong? Perhaps it is incompatible with other patches?

Which sailfish version are you running? Can you try disabling all other patches and check again?

Awesome! I missed being able to simultaneously look at the active app and the home screen without freezing the former.

Is there a reason why this isn't the default behavior, as in pre-2.0 sailfish? Does it slow down the animation or something?

Glad that you like it. A comment in the code suggests that this has a negative impact on the peek performance, but for me it works perfectly. So honestly, I am not sure :)
