    On home screen menu->apps->manage apps->menu->all(or running, it doesnt matter)->choose the home you chose->clear defaults->hit home and you can change to whatever you want

    How do you uninstall a launcher?? I navigated to the system/app folder and I tried to either Delete or Uninstall Launcher2 but I keep getting this error "Uninstall not successful"...something about being a read only file.

    How do i remove this thing from my phone so i go back to the stock launcher?? Thanks.

    forgot to mention, when I go to delete the file it says "Warning: Launcher2.apk cannot be deleted because the file system is read-only."
