    Good day,

    I'm wondering if there is a way to make a patch that will allow for seven or more icons on the dock. I have a patch from Cydia on my jailbroken ipad that allows for about a dozen or more icons on the dock (after 8 or 9, you need to scroll). Would this be hard to do on the Touchpad?

    I definitely wouldn't mind this patch, but I have a feeling if it were possible it would've been done back for the original Pre and then some.

    Anyone able to confirm or deny this possibility?
    Palm V → TX → Centro → HTC Legend → TouchPad/Pre 3(UK) → HTC One X → Nexus 4/iPad Mini → Pre 3/TouchPad Go

    Possible but if you exceed the width of the available area I hear it doesn't play so well

    You can have as many as you like, but no more than 8 will show in landscape mode and 6 in portrait mode. No scrolling across. Plus you may lose the app launcher button as well.

    It's an easy change to make if you are prepared to edit system files (using internalz)

    This'll give you 6#8 icons and get rid of that useless launch 'button'!

    I'm working on an app that will allow you to set the number of columns and other launcher attributes via an interface. It will also allow you to set back to default with a button push. Hopefully I'll have a preview by this coming weekend.

    Brilliant. If you need a tester, just let me know (I'm fed up with manually editing files)

    If you add the "No launcher button" patch in Preware, you can then add more icons to your launcher, but only 6 will show when in portrait view.

    You are likely aware of this discussion, but just in case ....

    Would hope your solution will give all the control embodied in those mods - including icon row separation (to limit that space to just enough for 1 line of description.
