    That sounds correct. I haven't been stock and don't intend to be to test this. But you are on the right track. Try it out and see how it goes! haha

    I was getting FC's on HelixLauncher2, but I'm using an ESE53 based ROM, so that could be why.

    But to stop the FC's, I just connected through ADB (adb shell) and manually removed HelixLauncher2 (busybox rm /data/app/com.helixproject.launcher2.apk).

    If you don't have busybox installed, I guess you could alternatively run:
    adb uninstall com.helixproject.launcher2

    After doing so, the looping FC's go away.

    Some help the app is, it says ver 9 ...

    Someone check for me, because I dont remember in this or launcher2, but when rotating this helix to landscape, my backround image rotates, but it seems I get the upper half so to speak, like it isn't centered vertically.

    Can anyone else compare notes on this?

    not a big thin overall, but perhaps a bug that can be submitted.

    I love the thing overall, went down to 5 screens from 7, as I hadn't even filled up 3 yet ... Nice that it is customizable like that.

    Current Phone Model:
    LG G3 (VZW), Nexus 7 v2
    Unrooted 2.0.1 and works fine. The only issue I had is when I first installed it the app tray scrolled really slow. As soon as I got to the bottom and scrolled back up it was fine. Gonna hold off redoing all of my icons on this home until I see that it is gonna work ok and be stable.

    Toast, it doesn't come with LW, it supports them if your ROM has them.
