HelixLauncher2 in the market says it requires 2.1-update1 that is on the N1. Does HL2 work on the Droid now? Does version 1 work on the updated Droid?I really, really need more than 3 home screens, and want to try Helix to get them.
I apologize if this is posted somewhere else, I looked for a while and couldn't find anything related. I want to know how to use the advanced shortcut option in HelixLauncher2. Basically I would like to have the generic phone icon on my dock but instead of taking me to the Dialer I would like it to take me to my Call Log. I would also like to use the standard Contacts icon on my dock but would like it to always take me to my Favorites Contacts instead of All Contacts. Does anyone know how to set this up in the Advanced Shortcuts in HelixLauncher or know a different way to do it? Also if anyone knows if there is an easy way to use a different Icon for each of those?
I'm rooted, so I was wondering if anyone had a way to use the 2.1 app drawer on the droid? I've seen home replacement apps that will do this, but I'd REALLY prefer if there was a workaround to that, since everytime I've used one of those it's slowed down the phone considerably.
How can i hide an app from the app drawer?In the threads i read and searched for they all said it can be done with root access, but no one ever says how it can be done.As a side note, I still want to have access to the app using keyboard shortcuts.I have tried home replacement apps, but they are so unstable. I also tried "App Vault", but this doesn't let you access the app while it is hidden.Can anyone help me please?
I'm having a small problem which is sort of annoying. No it's really annoying.Every once in a while I'll click on my app drawer and it's completely blank.Closing it and reopening it doesn't seem to work. I have to wait about ~1 minute for it to start working again.Also, when I wake my phone up and unlock it, I can't swipe to a different screen for about 10 seconds after I unlock the phone.It's also rather annoying.Has anyone ran into these problems and have a solution?I did some searching on here and the only thing I could find was this issue with people who are running different ROM's.I am running stock.
I searched for this on the Droid X forum and didn't quickly find an answer. I also googled to see if there was any widget that you could place on a home screen to display apps (not hidden by LP Plus), but didn't really find anything I really was looking for with that either.
Moderators please move this if this has been discussed many times and my search criteria was just bad.
I'm looking for a widget for my last home page I need to finish customizing that will give me the ability to look at my App Drawer (the Apps I use frequently and want to display with LP Plus - while hiding ones I don't want to show up).
With my G1 it was possible to hide apps from the drawer, but I can't remember if that was something somone enable via a ROM or a separate app. Anyone with a Droid able to leave an app installed and fully functional, but hide it so it doesn't show up in the app drawer?
I have this icon in my app drawer and have no idea where it came from or what it belongs to. It looks like a figure wearing a ninja suit holding a rifle and it says superuser permissions under it. When I click on it all that shows up is a black screen and brings up nothing when I press the menu key. Any ideas on what it's from and how to remove it.
i've searched around here trying a find an answer and I can't seem to find anything. I was wondering if there was a way to take the applications that are in the drawer and move them to a folder. I don't like that fact that I have all these applications in the drawer, it gets too congested. I would just like to put them in a folder on on of my home screens so its a little bit more cleaned up...
I downloaded universal androot and rooted my phone. I then immediately un-rooted my phone and rebooted.Now I can't delete the superuser permissions app from my app drawer?? Plus I cant delete universal androot?Plus since I un-rooted will I receive the OTA update to 2.2?
I have a 2.2 Froyo Droid X not-rooted and I really don't want to root it. I've pretty much figured how to create shortcuts with custom icons, and I'm using Launcher Pro and Desktop Visualizer for the shortcuts that are not on my dock... what I want to know is, can I customize without rooting the icons of the applications themselves or no?
My touchscreen is randomly pressing in an exact straight line near the 2nd column. Utilizing a program called steamy window, I could see exactly where the touchscreen was being touched. See attached photo.
Some Diagnostic Info: - I live in SC where it has been quite hot. - It first started this weekend after being in the car dock for 15mins. Afterward the phone was very warm. - It seems to stop after the phone has cooled. - It started happening again today in a 78 Degree air conditioned apt. after using the phone for 30mins. - After letting it sit to type this, it has seemed to stop. - Pressing the edges of the screen seems to reproduce the issue. - Moisture stickers still have the red x's on em. - My screen is as clean as can be
From reading other posts, I'm well aware it could be a moisture/humidity/heat thing. But it shouldn't be doing it in my AC'd apt. I'm also aware some say its greasy fingers/screen. But as I've mentioned my screen is very clean & it still does it.
Some History: I've had my Droid since November. I've dropped it ONCE on the pavement some time in January/February. Afterward everything has worked fine. About 2/3 months ago I noticed my screen started randomly clicking things. (In my Apt.) Fearing it was going to call someone, I immediately did a battery pull & cleaned the screen. Everything was fine until this weekend.
I'm getting married mid august, and don't have a whole lot of time/money to fix this, but need the phone desperately during the next month. I was hoping someone would have some advice for me.
I do not have insurance. Is this covered under some warranty? I am rooted (CM5.07/No Theme). Should I do a factory reset b4 I take it in? Will they do anything other than tell me I'm screwed?
I noticed after doing a restore to Rubix 1.6 when I tried to access Settings they would not show nor was the Setting icon in my app drawer. Is this just a bad restore or is the Nandroid corrupted? I'm running DarkSlide v3 just fine right now just trying to figure out if my RubiX 1.6 nandroid is crap or not.
I was wondering, is there a leaked 2.1 app drawer file that i can download ? I already have the the new 2.1 gallery and I love it!! I really don't want to root my phone, I just want a few 2.1 goodies before the official release.
I'm having some serious indecision. I have a Moto Droid running 2.1. I have DxTop installed and love it However, I find that screens space is becoming a little cramped, and the expanding it to a 5 screen set up basically gets rid of the functionality that attracted me to DxTop in the first place (the quick navigation diamond shaped desk top set up).Yesterday I decided to test drive HelixLauncher2. I found the program to give me much of the functionality I had lost with DxTop, as my widget use increased. Instead of 5 screen ins a cross set up, now I have 7 screens side by side, but with a quick jump that allows me to go from one to any other in one move. Right off the bat I was able to organize my widgets and shortcuts in a way that made more sense. The program also added the really cool 2.1 app drawer from the Nexus 1, which I enjoy. The downside is that screen rotation doesn't seem as responsive as in DxTop (it works but has lag), the App drawer cannot be organized by categories (it's only alphabetical), and the program (though smaller an leaner) is not perfectly stable (It has already closed on me once, but when it crashes it just reverts back to itself).So my question is, should I stay with DxTop which is no longer as functional as I would like, but is far more stable and responsive, and allows me to organize my app drawer by categories; or should I go with HelixLauncher2, which is much more configurable, is easy to navigate, demands less of my system, but is also not as stable, lags a little, and does not allow me to organize my apps in the drawer.What I wouldn't give for a snappy and stable version of HelixLauncher2 with an option to organize the app drawer.
Note: To install this you must have the Amon recovery image installed. Place the .zip file in your sdcard root, reboot into recovery, flash dalvik and data, then flash the rom from the sdcard. Note2: Sense is enabled by default. To use all the features, disable Sense and use Home. Warning: Most live wallpapers and the Flan gallery DO NOT WORK with the Nexus Launcher, so if you choose to use the Nexus Launcher over Home, don't use Live Wallpapers or Flan. Also, the Galaxy wallpaper doesn't work at all. Some of the live wallpapers will disappear after the phone locks as well. Like I said, this is just a BETA TEST rom to give ya'll a taste of stuff to come. I won't be offering support for it, so don't use it unless you somewhat know what you're doing, and just want to play around with stuff.
