    Thank
    you
    If your asking me, on the HTC launcher everything worked. Im in the process of DL'ing the COW version w/o the HTC launcher but with live wallpaper (non interactive).
    I was just asking anyone who has the ROM.
    But thank you for responding.
    I like how theres a phone button hardwired at the bottom of the screen. I might need to give it a go
    They all work on both versions of the launcher. You can use the HTC one or the smoke glass one. Both will allow interactive wallpapers as well.

    the live wallpapers also work on dxtop....best of both worlds
    Updated the OP post, but yeah the HTC launcher is not a neccesity, rather just having launcher in the system of the droid. I am glad to haer that dxtop worked too though. This means that GDE would probably work as well.
    i should have said that the live wallpapers are interactive with dxtop...not sure if i made that part clear.

    You should create a nandroid back up of your current system in revovery mode. Once that is completed I wipe from there. I just go to wipe all data. This will wipe your phone, NOT your SD card. Then use nandoird advanced restore to load up the ROM. If you currently have a 2.0.1 you can try to not wipe and simply restore with nandroid, because my file is only system and boot.

    To clarify a little. Both the HTC and smoke glass luancher have interactive wallpapers. However in all versions if you choose Home instead of Launcher then you will have the standard app draw themed with smoke galss, and then LWP will not be interactive. You can switch between Home and Launcher in the manage applications in the settings, or you can download Home Switcher from market for free and easily allows you to switch between Home and Launcher.

    Yeah the friend i made this for had rebootos off the gate, but he said running two days now and its rare to none. i sometimes will land one when i am doing fast app changing and major multi tasking but compared to other ROMs it has definitly improved. Reboots is one reason a lot of people stray from the launcher, but to have interactive LWP the launcher is a must. You can choose the standard smoke glass app draw as well it will allow LWP but they wont be interactive. Choice is up to the user. All versions have launcher and smoke glass app draw built in.
    Once again thanks for all your work on this. I was getting reboots opening a number of apps. I know that anyone who has had a Droid for more then a few months and have been making changes to it, is gonna have a pretty unique phone by now. Having said that, my issues may be due to any number of market apps or a mixing of ROMs or other adds. I am gonna try the SG/COW without the HTC launcher. Like I said I really like this so hopefully I find the right combo for a less reboot.
    I also hope that you find a good combo. If it doesn't work out for ya no harm no foul. I am just putting my own system out there for others to try out. Thanks for the support either way.

    This may be a stupid question but after I unzipped the file I downloaded in my nandroid folder I have these three files: boot.img. System.tar. And nandroid.md5. How do I load these?

    Im still a noob at this myself so I will only tell you what I did to my phone and it's working. Unzip the ROM you downloaded in a place where you can find it. open the file, unzip it and copy the unzipped folder (the whole folder) and paste it in the nandroid folder of you Droid. You should have a regular looking folder not a zipped one. Oh yeah, Your Droid should be connected to your computer via USB. go it?
