    Every time I reboot my phone to change my battery when it goes dead, the screen for ADW keeps asking me if I want it to be my launcher. I have chosen many times for it to be my default launcher, but for some reason I go back to square one. Maybe there's something wrong with this app? It's the paid version btw.

    Try clearing the default of the app. Settings - Apps - ADW, scroll down a bit and "clear default". It'll ask you again if you want it default when you hit the home key so make it default. Try restarting after and see if that helps.

    Something else to try if that doesn't work is an uninstall and reinstall. You may want to make a backup through ADW EX's options prior to this to save yourself some setup time after you reinstall it.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up using go launcher instead, and the problem went away. I guess adw ex is not playing nice with JB or something. I'll install a custom ROM and try it out then. Thanks.

    Well, as long as you got a launcher you're happy with.
