How to get ICS/JellyBean launcher on Froyo or Gingerbread?

Let's be serious. Froyo or Gingerbread (2.2/2.3) are not the best-looking Android versions. Honestly, the most of them are terrible. How to fix that? We usually get some launchers and hide the original interface but what if the launcher does not work? Such as Nova or Apex launcher? For older versions of Android, you should check this out.

I won't analyze it or make it long, the launcher is called Holo Launcher. It's a simple, powerful, customizable and fast home replacement of Android ICS/Jellybean for older versions of Android. (Older such as Froyo or Gingerbread, not Cupcake or Donut :P)

The entire launcher offers plenty of customizations, just like the Nova Launcher and has a lot of features:

Full ICS Style: ICS Icons, Folders, Outlines, Drawer Tabs, etc.
- Custom Desktop Pages/Grid: Up to 9 desktop pages and 10 x 10 grid.
- Custom Drawer Portrait/landscape Grid
- Scrollable Dock: Up to 7 icons per page and up to 3 pages.
- Infinite Scrolling
- Gestures: Swipe up/down on desktop to launch apps quickly.
- Customizable shortcut/folder icons
- Customizable icon label color
- Apply icon packs, support ADW icon pack and Launcherpro icon pack.
- Desktop Previews: Pinch to access desktop previews.
- Backup and Restore: Backup and restore your settings and shortcuts.
- Other Customization Options: Keep in memory, home key action, hide apps in drawer, hide labels, etc.

The app comes as a free application available on market but there's also a plus version offering a bit more customizations like widget overlapping, more effects and more.
