    Is that for real?

    If so then that awesome I read that it still experimental the software the developer has designed, how is everything after the changes to the third column?

    Fine though. there is a slight bug where you can't disable 3 rows of tiles.

    Is this if you upgrade to GDR3 or can it be used for all version of WP8?

    Hi, nice feature. Does it need Windows Phone 8 SDK? I've removed the SDK for a while because it enables Hyper-V and installs Virtual Hub effectively breaking my IPv6 addressing.
    Will I be able to install the XAP from SD card via Store app? My device is dev+interop unlocked.

    Works great! I just used the registry editor in SamWP8 Tools app to enable it.

    What Key/Value should be modified? I mean, if it's done by editing registry settings only, this can be done solely with Interop unlock helper app.

    Enable 3 rows of tiles on your ATIV S with this registry tweak! (GDR3 only)



    Code:
    [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\OEM\Start]
    "ScreenSize"="dword:000001"

    That registry tweak is the only thing needed?? So if I interop unlock, that tweak is all I need to do?

    I'm the developer of WP8 version of WPH Tweaks and the one who found the registry key. If you have any questions, you can ask me :)

    For those manually editing the registry, please note that there are 3 possible values, 0 is for small screen (default), 1 is for medium screen and 2 is for large screen. I have not tried the differences between 1 and 2.

    WP 8.1 comes in 2014, you can not be on 8.1. GDR3 is 8.0.10512 so you are on that, not 8.1.

    Im on the fence about flashing my device to GDR2 so I can get GDR3 and then this. I just hate the fact I need to instal EVERYTHING and waste basically a full day to my phone (ridiculous when you think of it really)

    A question for you who have this enabled... Are the smallest tiles big enough so your not accidentally hitting wrong tiles, or the medium tiles big enough to have information on them and still easy to read them in normal viewing?

    I have all the files downloaded, but Im hesitant...

    As far as I recall i did not need to reinstall any apps for GDR 2 and 3. Perhaps others can confirm. The only issue is if you want the data sense app you will need to hard reset for it to show. If you are mot bothered by it then you don't need to reset.

    Also the smallest tiles are fine. You will not accidentally hit other tiles.

    Just go here (via your phone) and tap on the gdr3 start screen screenshot and zoom in and resize and reposition it to fill your phone screen to simulate what it will look like om your phone. Microsoft introduceert Windows Phone 8 GDR3-update – GSMinfo.nl

    The problem is that Im on GDR1, because Samsung has not released GDR2 in Finland. To get GDR3, I would need to be on GDR2 and because its not released for my device, I need to flash = lose everything.

    With the reg tweak, if you change it to 2 instead of 1, the text on pinned tiles is slightly smaller as well as in the app list when you swipe from right to left.
