    I just went through this myself, here's what you gotta do. First install another launcher from the market such as the gingerbread launcher. Next you must uninstall launcher.apk from the system/app folder using a file manager program. Reboot. Now return to the market and you will be able to install the new adw launcher.

    Did you reboot after remmoving the launcher.apk from the System/App folder?

    And you even have reboot in the directions...I think I filter that word out subconciously!

    Is there are newer ADW out? The reason I ask is because UD uses ADW as the stock launcher...

    I realized afterstarting this thread that it was the stock launcher. I may not update it because I don't want to deal with FC's. I went through that before and had to leave UD.

    are you getting fc's after the adw update? Have you tried "Fix Permissions"? I would try that and see what happens.

    Try going to adw settings>system preferance and un-check the wallpaper hack. Was getting a lot of launcher fc's, removed stock launcher, loaded new ADW and uncheck that box and running smooth now

    unless p3 released new kernels his previous kernels do not support compcache. and adw Fc's are bc adw is built into the rom and to update it, it needs to be in /system/app to replace the current launcher.

    Tj, thanks for the steps. I was having the same issue. installed another launcher, used oi file with god mode, removed the launcher.apk, rebooted and installed adw. worked like a charm. no fc's here.
