Woods Tutorial – For the Beginners

This minimal screen is perfect for beginners and minimal lovers alike. The calm forest background coupled with a unique UCCW skin (giving you all the necessary notifications) can be setup in less than 5 minutes, amazing.

Part 1: Before you begin

These are the apps you will need:
Nova Launcher (Free or Prime, but any launcher should be good provided it can hide the notification bar)

The files that you must copy to your phone:
UCCW & wallpaper
Icon pack (in case you want to create your own UCCW skins)

Part 2: Nova Settings

Desktop Grid: 12×8 (or whatever suits you best, as shown in the video)
Width Margin: None
Height Margin: None
Disable: Shadows, Label Icons
Homesceens: 1
Advanced: Enable: Widget Overlap

Enable Dock: Disabled

Look and Feel
Show notification bar: Disabled

Gestures and Buttons
Apply any if needed.

Part 3: Wallpaper Setup

Hold down on your homescreen – Wallpapers – Gallery – Find the Wallpaper and select it. The wallpaper should fit any screen as it doesn’t matter if some parts are cropped off.

Part 4: UCCW

To add the skins:

  • Hold down on the homescreen – Widget – UCCW – any size.
  • In the main menu after tapping the widget, select “Open uzip”, now just find where you pasted the folder and look for the skin you want to add.
  • After it appears on your homesreen, resize it to the way it looks in the video.
  • You can now edit the hotspots (allows you to open apps when tapping a certain area) in this skin, by tapping the skin to open it.
  • Then select ‘Hotspots’ in ‘Select Object’, followed by editing your needed hotspots.
  • If you would like to know more about hotspots, see the link below.
  • Finally tap any UCCW skin, Menu – Hotspots Mode – On.

Remember: Turn Hotspots mode ON to prevent opening the editor each time.
