    Are you using Helix 2? The last time I used it bettercut wasn't compatible, so i switched back to the first Helix launcher, I don't know if Helix 2 has been updated to fix the problem though. My advice would be to just switch to Helix 1/

    Hope this helps.

    Have you tried creating a new activity shortcut?

    Also, Bettercut (seems to, anyway) will only edit shortcuts on the "normal" home screen.

    Options: do the new activities like I said or clear your defaults, go to the normal home screen, drag your shortcuts from the app tray, edit, then go to whatever launcher you like to use. The edited shortcuts should be there.

    When I switch from one launcher to another, my home screen setup changes. By "changes" I mean resets.

    If you are using the Helix launcher, you need to put the shortcut on the actual home screen (stock). Then it will show up, and when you create the shortcut from Bettercut by way of the Helix launcher it will show up in the Helix. Kind of a pain in the ass...but that's how you do it.

    Was it a clean install of bettercut or did you restore it through the various ways? I'm interested because I keep seeing threads such as this, and have never had a problem with bettercut with helix 2 after doing a complete wipe and restoring only the app.

    *edit*

    Helix2 is my only launcher.

    I'm having issues as well, I tried creating the shortcuts on the default launcher, but when I try to create a new activity or system setting, it just doesn't do it. I select the app, choose an icon, and hit create, and it just sits there as if I didn't hit create. It used to work just fine, but I wanted to replace one of my shortcuts, and now it quit.

    I gave up and returned the app. I know folks love it, but just could not get it to work....

    Any idea on how to change back to default launcher?
