    Sent the backup assistance APK to both of you

    BlurHome.apk is probably the stock launcher, but I'd be careful with that. It's not IMPOSSIBLE to recover without a launcher (at least it wasn't on my Droid, ask me how I know) but it's not easy.

    No prob. Maybe someone will be able to extract it and post it on Rapidshare or something for all the folks that deleted it.

    If someone has the file and sends it to me, I have my own website with TONS of space and bandwidth that I can put it on... instead of having to wait for those PITA file sharing sites.

    I'm going to upload the entire /system/app folder when I get home so people don't need to ask for individual files.

    Remember! Rename, don't delete the files!

    You need to type su before trying to move files. It's really just easier with Root Explorer.
