    Looking for a launcher...

    If there a good launcher out there on the internets that has the button for the web and a button for the phone? I *think* I have seen this on some screen shots. If so...is this something that you use metamorph to install?

    check this link out
    [ROM 2.1] COW-2 versions to pick from and growing
    if you don't want the whole rom, which is amazing btw, then still download the file and extract all files and you should have a system.tar a boot.img, and a nandroid file, extract the system.tar and go to the app folder and find the launcher2.apk

    its the same as in the screenshots in the link.. i'd post just the apk, but im not at home and i cant' upload directly from my droid..

    hope this helps..

    Here is the launcher you are looking for AllDroid - View topic - [release]Launcher2 Ported to 2.0.1, v1.1b *UPD 2/08/10*

    It still isn't a 100%, will have random reboots. As suggest above, check out GDE as it seems to be more stable.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    Cool....do I push the apk to the /system/app folder?

    Edit: Yep that did the trick....I pushed it to the /system/app folder...pressed the home screen button...droid asked me to select a launcher...I selected the blue one. Be warned...your current set for home screens will be erased when you install it. Looks good though...matched buggles beast perfectly...buttons work... THANKS!

    Loop,

    Just to be clear, your current configuration (Home) is not erased, but your settings are not transfered. If you relaunch Home, everything should be just as you left it. This also assumes you do not delete the Home launcher.
