How to Install Samsung Galaxy S8 Launcher APK on S7 / S7 Edge with Nougat 7.0
Follow the simple steps outlined below.
The first thing that you will need to transform your launcher from S7 to S8 is to get .apk file either from (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4UHx5ZkkDSPSGpsMXJ4NWVhYlE/view?usp=drivesdk) or from XDA directly on your Galaxy S7 or on your PC and then transfer it to your Galaxy S7 phone.
After downloading the file, open the file and you will be prompted to “Enable Installing Apps from Unknown Sources” pop-up. You can do so by tapping “Settings” and switching to the “unknown Sources” toggle. Another dialogue box will appear and will ask your permission to allow installing applications from unknown sources or use it for his installation only.
Doing this will update the existing TouchWiz Home. Press the Home Button and you will see a completely new launcher of Samsung Galaxy S8. However, if the launcher crashes, just open the Setting app, go to Applications tab and choose the TouchWiz Home then Settings and clear all the data and cache.
The changes in the launcher include:
- Home Screen Layout
- Home Screen Grid
- Apps Screen Grid
If you don’t like the launcher of Galaxy S8 on your S7 / Edge phone, you can simply uninstall by going Settings> TouchWiz Home and choosing the “Uninstall Updates” option.
