    I looked through my home switcher. I have Home (com.android.launcher), Launcher (com.android.launcher2), Launcher (com.koushikdutta.launcher2), HelixLauncher2 (com.helixproject.launcher2) and GDE (com.rogo.gde). HOLY GOD! I was fortunate enough to uninstall helix 1, but the rest i dont know how to get rid of, or if i even should/can. anyone have detailed info on launchers? What to or not to keep, how to get rid of them, that kinda stuff? I only want to use GDE. I assume the original launcher should be there ( i want it for troubleshooting anyway), but the rest i want off. (side question: do launchers take up memory? is it quite ridiculous to have this many launchers?)

    In JRummy's Rom, Launcher2 and Helix2 are in System/app, not Data/app.

    that still leaves me with another launcher2. (com.android.launcher2 and com.koushikdutta.launcher2) i assume the android.launcher2 is for the 2.1 android update, and the original home screen is android.launcher, correct? which launcher2 gets deleted with the script? do i need the one that stays or can i get rid of it too?

    really all i want to know is if you only need one launcher, therefore i can erase all but GDE? or do you need two, if you want a new home screen?

    i was able to get rid of all the system app launchers using rom manger jrummy customizer it gives you options to uninstall other apps to like face book


    and i would personally keep the default home launcher just in case gde becomes unstable you would have a for sure stable one
