    Anyone else have issues with choosing a default launcher with 2.2 roms?

    I wonder if this is a 2.2 or my phone/settings thing. Every 2.2 rom i've tried (3 different ones) have all had the same issue where no matter what I seem to do, I can't get it to stick with a different launcher then the stock provided one. I really want to stick with launcherpro and have traditionally used home switcher to set it as default.

    Am I doing this wrong?

    thanks

    Once you have your new launcher installed, go into settings/applications and clear the defaults on the original launcher. Press the home key and it should bring up a dialog to select which launcer. Be sure to select 'use by default' and then select your new launcher.

    I would suggest before you do the above, you set up all your widgets in your new launcher and don't forget to delete ALL of the widgets in your old launcher first.

    Good luck.

    Home Switcher is not working with 2.2 for setting the default launcher. U would have to do as the post above me said.

    How exactly do you clear the defaults on the original launcher from settings/applications? I dont see any option for this in there. Thanks!
