    Love the ROM :) I was wondering if and how I could change the email quick launch icon on the home screen to open the outlook email app instead of the Google email app?

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    I think you can. Long press on the icon. Then select a different icon.

    I'm fairly sure he/she's talking about the dock icon.

    I think Pete's got a revised launcher up on Github that allows customizable dock apps, but I'm clueless as to how to get that to work (since it throws a bunch of errors when I try to build it).

    To answer the question, assuming it's how to customize the dock icons, you can't. You'll have to use a third-party launcher, like LauncherPro or ADWLauncher.

    Actually, if you follow Pete on Twitter (@peteralfonso), he posted a link to a Bugless Beast nightly build last week (or the week before), which I've been running since the following day. It has the option to choose which programs are in the dock by long-pressing them - a word of warning though - you can't add the phone app or contacts app to the dock (possibly others as well, but those two I tried with no luck) because you'll get an error that says "application not installed on your phone". I tweeted Pete about it, and he's looking into it. Fortunately, the phone is already part of the dock, so it's just a matter of me getting used to my phone and messaging dock shortcuts being reversed, at least until Pete gets it fixed.

    (And I should note that I do like Launcher Pro Plus a great deal, but I prefer not to have additional apps that do things my phone already does - HandCent, MMSDownload when I was using MIUI and couldn't download MMS attachments, etc - when I can avoid it.)

    It's not a revised launcher - it's a completely new build of Bugless, and while it's worked PERFECTLY on my phone for a week or more now, it's not considered a stable release, so if you're not experienced with this kind of thing, I'd be doubly sure to make a good working backup before you attempt to flash it.

    With that disclaimer, here is the link:
