Official Android Thread

With android being so versatile I thought it would be good to start a thread on how people customize their android phones. This thread can also be used for inspection and help with modding or rooting.
Here is my current homescreen on my galaxy s3. Post a pic and show me your homescreens.
I tend to like my homescreens to be minimalistic.

For more inspiration head over to mycolorscreen.com there are a lot of great layouts on there.

The icons are miui. You can install themes through your launcher. Apex and go have the most themes. I use nova and created this one myself.

Follow these instructions. You can download the icons on to your phone from the link. Also use desktop visualizer to change the icons to the ones he has on drop box.

Download a launcher. I recommend nova or apex. I personally use nova. Mess around with the settings. For widgets try beautiful widgets, uccw, semi widget, and try different icon packs that work with your phone.

@tonysteak I had the skyrocket on AT&t for a while. I haven't rooted my s3. I kinda like stock touchwiz on it and jellybean comes soon.

The note II looks cool. I went with the S3 because of size and other factors though. Here is a quick review of the s3.

You'd need to root your droid to do most of these modifications, correct?
