    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?

    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.
