    How to set Helix launcher as default

    When I first installed it, I could set it as a default. But after clearing the default and setting the default as aHome, I can't get it back.

    I looked all the menus I could see but no luck.

    How can I set Helix launcher as default?

    I have a unrooted 2.0.1.

    Open helix launcher and set it as default. Or uninstall and and install it again and when it asks you which default you want to use, select helix.

    menu>settings>applications>manage applications>aHome>clear defaults. Then hit the home button and it should ask you which one you want to use.

    I couldn't see aHome under application. I uninstalled and installed Helix several times with no luck.
    I ended up hard resetting my Droid. Problem gone for now.
    Thanks for the advices anyway.

    I have the same problem - I cant get the home screen choice to pop up. I had Helix in V2.0, then chose the original as default. Now with V2.1, I can't get it re-installed and working

    How do you do a hard reset, and what do you lose by doing that?

    Thanks

    No need to reset. Just download the app Home Switcher and you can choose to use default or Helix as you wish.
