    ok, currently I have a droid running froyo (ChevyNo1 4.4 to be exact) and I'm running GDE to have the hero theme.

    I hate having to run a home screen replacement program JUST to have that dialer/launcher at the bottom. (plus with Apps2sd, after you reboot the phone you have to kill the launcher for your icons to show up)

    So my question is: is there a launcher.apk that I could just replace the stock phones launcher with that would give me the same effect as GDE with the hero theme? Or is there a way I could make one myself? (I'm willing to learn and try doing it myself if someone can help guide me in the right direction) And NO, I don't want to use metamorph either...I'd rather replace the actual file with a new one so that it takes over as the default launcher that starts with the phone!


    My hero launcher has a phone logo, then the app drawer, then a contacts logo....in case anyone needed to know.

    Like this VVV

    Look into LauncherPro or ADW. They both accept custom things. As far as a hero background, I haven't seen one with them, but there are many great options.

    I don't want to use a seperate launcher tho...I want to replace the stock launcher.apk with a hero one (specifically one like what I posted a picture of with the phone and contacts buttons)

    I think Xeudoxus was the last to really work on having a functional Hero launcher. Maybe ask him?
