    Help modifying Launcher Pro .xml

    I attempted to change the default_workspace.xml file located in the Launcher Pro .apk so that pressing the "message" app would route instead to Google Voice.

    I made what I thought were the correct locations:
    com.google.android.apps.googlevoice.ConversationLi stActivity

    I just substituted those in for the sms locations in the same file; but when I try to run the file, I get nothing but force closes.

    Any thoughts? I'm brand new to this so anything would help.

    Try using Rom Manager to fix permissions...if not, try this...assuming that launcher pro is in your /data/app folder use adb shell in command prompt and type
    adb shell
    chmod 644 /data/app/com.fede.launcherpro.apk (I think that's the name of the apk?)

    I've been looking to do the same thing and something similar with the browser button leading to xscope browser.

    Has this worked for you? How were you able to gain access to the .xml and edit the code? When I open it it is always scrambled.

    I've been looking to do this to a number of different applications. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

    you can set any shortcut you want to Launcherpro's shortcut tray by long pressing the button you want to modify. there is no reason to go screwing around in the guts.
