    Any one had experience with this one. Donaters only get pre-release updates.
    I was running HL1 worked fine. Moto Droid, DM1.
    Donated, downloaded new Beta. everything force closes. Uninstalled (for now). Anyone....thoughts? Help?

    I installed 1.4 beta on my Moto droid and it's working fine. Has many features of HelixLauncher 2, which didn't work on Moto Droid.

    I read that the developer said H1.4b wouldn't work with DroidMod because it " is a faked 2.1" therefore incompatible. I mean, it could be wrong, but it didn't work for me. Are you running DroidMod, Grey Parrot?

    If DroidMod is a root, then no, I'm stock.

    I installed this 1.4 Beta also and everything works flawlessly exept when you add an icon shortcut to a homescreen and press it it force closes, making it useless. I am a Helix1 user usually and have never had an issue with it. Helix2 will not even open for me, all I really want is the 3D glass Launcher table and if I could hack this to Helix1 I would be perfectly happy

    That would be correct. Droidmod is a 2.0.1 ROM with some of the 2.1 features "hacked" in to it....

    Droidmod is so old I'm surprised there are still people using it....they haven't updated it since a good bit before 2.1 came out.

    What features does it have over the Market Helix1?

    I liked that you could hide the notification bar and icon titles in Helix2, but hated the lag. Are these features in 1.4?
