    Currently running 4.2.2 on galaxy S4 mini GT-I9197
    Ive tried all the tips from some cool wise people, but it dosent work on my s4 mini, i did root it to delete all the bloatware and unused stuff, whilst it was rooted i found i cud drag to the bottom default short cuts but it wudnt drop em ther unfortunately,( directly the bottom icons were unresponsive, rooted or not ) will the new update allow me to change them, i currently have four originally five but i removed default explorere, wanting five back and want only what i want there ...like chrome for starters

    I had a Samsung S2 on 4.1 and not sure I ever tried there.
    My Note 3 when on 4.3 and now 4.4.2 can certainly edit the dock at the bottom with different icons or folders with 2 or more apps together.

    You may be limited by the phone or 4.2, again I don't know; but I am fairly sure you can do what you ask with the Nova Launcher.
    I only use it to add extra icons on my main homepage.

    Haha, It was just a smile, and demonstrating how you can add some together and put a name on the tray/folder - also how it looks when you tap on the folder in Nova.
    Nova will take 6 across at the most I think , unless reducing the icon size allows more.
    Nova and other launchers are just an app that you can switch off, or get very elaborate with extra icon packs and widgets, screens etc. It took me about 15 minutes.
    I can't guarantee 4.4 will allow it on the S4 mini, but it has roughly the same Touchwiz layout as the Note 3.
    Good luck.

    Ah I see. bummer.

    If Nova doesn't free the dock maybe try here again or the S4 mini forum, someone may have a solution. Good luck.

    Have you tried dragging an app to the homescreen first, letting go of it, then dragging it to the dock? Quite a few TW launchers won't let you drag from the app drawer to the dock directly.
